May the world rot in hell...

or perhaps it already is. What started out as a wonderful girl's day out ended on a glued to the TV weekend. It was just a fluke actually, flicking through news channels with Pakistan flashing across all...shoot out at a PML-N rally...then came news of a bomb blast at PPP's rally after BB's address. intial reports said that BB was safe, later changing to her husband's plea for prayers for her safety...we were seeing our guests off when I heard that BB was confirmed dead...everyone returned and sat down awhile to hear and let the news sink in. and then it was tv marathon for the entire weekend. watching the same bulletins on a loop. worried over the safety of family and relatives back home...made frantic phone calls while watching reports of total chaos in the country.
BB was a leader, a good leader and politician. and i supported her, i voted for PPP in 2002 elections and i'd have voted for her this time too, if i were in Pakistan. i support her party, what her party stands for, not simply her family name. she could rally the masses unlike other puppet leaders...and her death, assasination was shocking, numbing...i still can't think straight...and the shitbags who run the Pakistani media aren't helping in the least. she's been declared a shaheed, a martyr...and there is a sickening glut of news reports glorifying her and her family...she wasn't a saint, her stints in the govt. were not sqeaky clean but all the same i mourn for her as a person; she did not deserve such a horrific death. Pakistan did not need a dark hour as this, the lawlessness, destruction, confusion and killings.
so much has happened in the past 36 hours that the mind reels...words fail...ab kia hoga, i should think 'ab kia hoga,' but on a personal level and then on the national scale, so much has happened and so fast, all i can add is a pithy curse at the general state of world rot...that's all it seems i can do, i refuse to think too dark...even at this unGodly hour with a world of worries keeping me awake.

I also found the declaration of 'martyr' for BB a little too much. But yes, her assassination is indeed tragic, and very disturbing.

Anyway, dark times -- I hate having them around. But then again, who am I kidding.

Frankly I had a sigh of relief when I heard the news of her murder and then I was shocked when the biggest terrorist of Pakistan Mr. Altaf Hussain from London declared that she is shaheed, I was even more shocked when every body else in the whole world has easily accepted this declaration of her martyrdom and a corrupt political figure has become a martyr, all her faults, lootings, blunders and plunders have been forgotten by everyone so easily and she is being called the queen of democracy who has given her life for democracy. I wonder when will the fools from my country will learn to judge their politicians at the merit of their work for the country, the so called democracy queen has no democracy with in the party, I am getting the news that she has nominated her son, a 19 year old student, to be her successor to lead the party instead of all the experienced and well established theifs oops politicians of her party. Is this what a queen of democracy will do............

I hope you and all like you will find and give chance to another theif to create a new mess in the country. Let someone else come and play with the money and sources of our country, at least this way we will spread the wealth of our country among our country men.

Someone might say that I am insensitive and should feel sorry for those innocent lives that are lost in those blasts, let me tell you that I am not. If we are fools and we do not want to change our lives by choosing right and correct candidates and would want to follow the same old politicians whom we have tested time and again then I dont feel sorry for them. They may also go and rot in hell along with their dear politicians.

I am only sad that my country, my Pakistan is suffering.
