Some Truth.

When I was reading this, I felt every word. I too felt the anger, disappointment, shame and frustration. I love my homeland because that’s what it will always be, if they decide to kick us out of England, Pakistan is where I would go to seek refuge. There’s British Asian’s who can be described as the politically correct phrase which is a “coconut”. “Brown” on the outside but “White” on the inside. You can interpret this how you wish. But for me I refuse to become a coconut. I love Pakistan and it’s history. However, I wish the people could sometimes be nicer to each other.

  1. Thank God we will inspire people to fall in love with Pakistan, rest assured sister we value so greately. πŸ™‚ ❀
    And Hajra, excellent post and change begins with us, I say this because all my frustrations, angers and issues due to being a Pakistani Muslim woman continued to grow, but I was taught that if I want to see change for the betterment of my homeland, which is a piece of my heart truly it should begin with me.
    Let's stand united sisters and country people to save us, to save our country.
    And to all those militants, TTP etc, fundamentalists etc etc, we will show you HOW we HONOR our FLAG, if that is the last thing we do before your bullets finds us. Pakistan Zindabad!!!

    1. We sure will do, that post especially the last part of the image gives me the hope. Indeed like you have mentioned change begins with ourselves. Lets forget about the nations and all its governments and just focus on ourselves as people. Humanity needs to be bought back and In’Sha’Allah it will!

      1. The leaders are interested in lining their pockets and playing intl. games but it is we, the people of Pakistan who will get things better, it is my belief that despite all our flaws and imperfections, the Pakistani nation has great potential for improving and prospering. InshAllah.

      2. It really does, I mean the problem is now people fear the government even though we live in a “democratic” society. It should be the government fearing the people. The saying “A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves’ comes to mind.

  2. It is indeed sad how people brand an entire nation due to extremist activities of a miniscule per cent of the population. What these extremist do not understand is how their activities adversely affect the innocent. Somehow the entire humanity becomes an indirect target of their intolerance.
    I can completely understand your emotions for your homeland. Alhamdulillah, many will be enlightened due to this post of yours! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for taking time to read the post and for your input. That’s very true, sad and selfish. This why I wish I could talk to extremist and try to understand their mind frame. Of course, most of them are just brainwashed by the whole shaheed (martyr) fantasy. But even that is selfish as they are only thinking about their own secured place in paradise and not their fellow Muslim brothers and sisters. Thank you for you kind words, I really do hope so πŸ™‚

  3. Yes, for a long time I was also wondering the same. Instead of all the horror and destabilization, destruction that they have created I did think that Pakistan could talk with these groups.
    But after realizing that these people’s agendas is the final collapse of my homeland, the mayhem and hell on earth for us Pakistanis and the rise of tyrannical terror in name of religion I have finally concluded that its futile to dialogue with such monsters.

      1. Yes, I completely agree with you and its just unimaginable that Pakistan has let them roam around and spread the message of hatred towards other religions by going on this Wahabism trolling, making S. Arabia so happy!!!
        All their actions prove they have nothing to do with ISLAM honestly, too much nonsense being dolled out. They even have illegal media that is spreading stupid education, in 2009 while working with an ngo we were assisting the internally displaced people as they fled from the Swat and other tribal areas due to the military offensive going on with militants.
        The mulla brigades and militants aka terrorists were shouting from masjid loudspeakers inciting people that whoever rapes the female aid workers will go to heaven because they are westernized. While we were far from our home and distributing food, tents, medicines among the displaced people.
        Some of the more radical minded displaced men in those tents were in agreement that we were being western by assisting them and their women. Which religion has taught that Astagfirullah, let alone ISLAM.

      2. wow, I don’t even know what to say to that. Gosh they’re so disgusting and perverse! and tell me about the Wahabism trolling. I mentioned before in my post that what these men are suffering from is illiteracy. There’s to much education required to understand the Qur’an as well all these Wahhabi, Sunni, Shia etc jargon. There’s too much to comprehend. Regarding the whole “lets rape western women” just another excuse to behave like animals and not keep their pants zipped!

  4. Exactly my point. They even sent intimidation messages, mail to our offices to STOP doing western work, when infact we were helping desperate people of our country. Most of the female aid workers on ground were, and are still and they were so happily saying that we were without shame and should be raped. I mean F*** O**!!!
    Yes, you are right, there is no excuse to rape whether women are foreign or local, white or black etc. But in countries like ours rapists know laws are working in their favor hence they get away with rape crimes.
    Now coming to aid workers issue, ngos don’t risk sending foreign female staffers and on other hand most female foreign staffers are too snooty to go out and do real work among people too, they prefer sitting in lavish offices in the capital and lamenting their woes of being in Madistan, aka Pakistan.
    While women like myself risk our lives, and honor if I might add to do work on ground and continue to be criticized by both Pakistanis for being “too western” and western people for being “too traditional and not doing enough.”

    And its no fun to hear or read messages that are telling people to go and rape yourself, and those apologists who side with such idiots have helped Pakistan to come at this stage.

    1. Man, that’s really really scary! I mean these are a bunch of Neanderthal’s please be safe Saadia. How can anyone support them it’s beyond me. It’s a shame that foreign stuff so stuck and sound like they only do this work to please their own inflated ego. I guess no one really cares for a country unless its their own. It must be disheartening when you do all that can you do the help the people of your country and then get all this abuse. I admire you so much for continuing and not being defeated. I know i probably would :/

      1. I know tell me about it and I am not getting any younger you know. I have had my not so finer moments too and that’s why I have been working totally low profile because I cant land my loved ones into problems just because of these bloody minded lot. Yes, well you know the white savior syndrome is quite alive and kicking and probably you can understand better as to why I write on those issues on the blog too. And I DO believe that only we can do our saving and for that we must think sanely for ourselves and our country collectively.
        It is disheartening and at times so demoralizing but I do know that progressive change wont happen over night. Thanks for your kindness and wishes, we are all together in this and defeat is a word that we need to delete completely from our dictionaries or else we will stop now and perish. After some colleagues from Khyber Pakhtun Khwa got targeted badly, most aid workers/ journalists had to overnight go underground and operate from the shadows. This is why there is a helpless realization that despite peace is demanding a high price, there will always people ready to pay it.
