The Evil Within


We have to fight the evil within ourselves and the evil all around. Most of us are saddened and alarmed as to how our enemies have managed to divide Pakistanis into two groups after 9/11. This they achieved by launching their bogus war on terror inside Pakistan following their invasion of Afghanistan (and with passage of time they created terrorist groups in tribal areas of the country). Hence the need is to bridge the gap between these two groups, both of whom claim to be righteous.

The second main incident which has divided us is the case of Salman Taseer's murder. Frankly speaking, we should have more sympathy for Aasia Bibi than Taseer. Taseer handled the whole affair very irresponsibly and when someone holds an authoritative position in a Muslim country, then he should act mature and not use careless street language in front of camera especially if it is a delicate matter involving Islam. Taseer's 'repeated' behaviour was not expected from someone who was the Chairman of WorldCall Group, the founder of Daily Times and also the Governor of Punjab.
