Dasht -e- Tanhai Mei

Amid this delirium, I find peace. A truth that this serene uncertainity is the only certain expression of life. Urgency of reclamation is not a concern, continuity of thoughts is a hopeless gesture. 

Not me, not love. When its about you... Its about nothing else. 

Is Qadr Pyaar Se Ae Jaan-e-Jahan Rakha hai
Dil Ke Rukhsaar Pe Is Waqt Teri Yaad Ney Haath
Yun Guma Hota Hia Garchey Hai Abhi Subh He Firaaq
Dhal Gaya Hijr Ka Din Aa Bhi Gayi 
   ...Wasl Ki Raat

Yes We Can

"Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends - hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism - these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility - a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task."

Was Hitler a Muslim?

For the last few days, I've been receiving hundreds of messages condemning, swearing, cursing Israel and the Jews. Messages that were supposed to be sent in support of Palestinians and the world peace. One of these messages cited from Hitler's book. "I destroyed Jews but left few so that the world knows why I was killing them". One freak acquaintance even kept it as his personal message on FB with his freakier friends commenting 'Hail Hitler' 'Kill all Jews' 'Down with Israel, AllahuAkbar'. What precious thoughts. A benchmark example of how ridiculous we are as a nation with absolutely no idea of what we are talking about. I hate to be so harsh when I truly believe that Israeli attack on Gaza is an extremely inhumane and barbaric act. But what about us? Who the hell we think we are? What the f**k we actually want?

Let me put it this way, if we hate the Jews so much, why shouldn't the Jews hate us with same intensity? If we want to annihilate them, why shouldn't they wish the same?

We so talk about peace but don't understand its fundamentals. Peace is just an outlook. A view that testifies that all processes are running smooth. These may be contrasting but they are co-existing. Just like your car. You can't talk about peace with 5% of your elites using 70% of the total wealth. Last week I visited seven different cities of Sindh and the conditions there are shattering. Infra-human, literally. I would've looked like a joker if I had talked about peace, patriotism and equality with those hungry insect like humans crawling out there. Their hunger was disturbing.

Peace evolves from equality and not from master slave mindsets. Equality doesn't exist anywhere and we are The epitome of that master-slave mindset. Think about it and you'll realize that in the disguise of peace, we all are actually mourning over our present status. Hate it but you can't run away from it. Yes, we are weaker, the losers. Yes, in the current world scenario, we have forced ourselves in a position where half of the Muslim world is crumbling economically and the other half doesn't have any idea what to do with all its resources. We are handicapped. We are dependent. We love to be at western universities, read their books, watch their shows, eat their hamburger, wear their brands, fantasize their bodies, and Oh! Alhamdulillah, I'm a Muslim.


When I see rallies and protests and demonstrations in favor of those innocents getting butchered in Gaza, I feel that we actually have nothing to do with it, at all. We are not supporting them. We are actually disclosing our helpless-ness, our frustration. We all believe somewhere in our hearts that since we are THE Muslims, we have a right to rule. We want to be The masters, we fucking don't want peace. We want the chabuk in our hands. We so hate the Jews we want to torture them out of this world, just in the likings of Hitler's concentration camps.

I believe, talking about peace is just a bull-shit way to comfort ourselves. To run away from reality that we can't do anything. Peace is nothing but a forged ideology with life from cosy dining rooms to stinking toilets.

Those who are suffering and those fighting, I haven't heard them talk about peace. Its simple: When you can't confront, you follow.
