So much has been happening. As this post is being published, the Jamia Hafsa crack down has started. The mullah in charge has just told Geo TV that he does not “believe in the law that is not according to Shariah” and any government that demolishes mosques is un- Islamic and thus the law of the law can be ignored.
The May 12 Karachi carnage remains a black spot in the memory of Pakistanis .While a lot of information is floating around , this site has been uploaded which serves as an easy reference to all the online content about the black Sat.
Observing the ongoing events ,while traveling in the deserts of Balochistan amidst heat and dust (hence the absence from the blog) am reminded of a friend’s remark . He said “Pakistani politics is about Chiefs and not people. When the Chief of the Army Staff is removed, the Army takes over. When the Chief Justice is removed, the lawyers take over. The people of Pakistan have been removed from the power equation a long long time back and no one noticed. No one came out on the streets . ”
