There is officially no hope for Pakistan. This country is utterly fucked. Militant Islamists just assassinated the minority minister Shahbaz Bhatti for speaking out against blasphemy laws. Earlier this year they assassinated Governor Taseer, the governor of the Punjab province, for doing the same thing and for having the audacity to believe women are people too. His own body guard killed him! Emptied two entire clips into his body while the other body guars watched. They then paraded the murderer around in the streets as a hero! This is a country where you can get arrested and sentenced to death for throwing away a business card with Muhammad’s name on it!
Farahnaz Ispahani, an aide to president Asif Ali Zardari said “This is a concerted campaign to slaughter every liberal, progressive and humanist voice in Pakistan.” The country, which has nuclear weapons by the way, is fast becoming a theocratic hell-hole. Soon it will be an authoritrian theocracy where women, non-muslims, and muslims who offend more powerful muslims will be executed for stepping out of line. Meanwhile we keep flooding this country with money and weapons under the naivee notion that they want to help us fight terror. They are terror!
