Cold-blooded, brazen, barbaric, inhuman, tragic, blatant, heart-wrenching, ghastly, horrific…. Bring all the other superlative degrees of much stronger expressions to put into words what had befallen in that alma mater on that fateful Tuesday. Blend these words together and the result would still fall thousands of light years away from the vicinity of the meaning of what had actually taken place inside that high-walled army-administered facility of learning.
The magnitude of this national tragedy is beyond all measures. The horrors of that winter morning have had a chilling impact, particularly, on the sensitive heads who have been busy ever since to bring to use their best analytical faculties of their brains. These poor souls have been giving continual shots at making something out of the perversion that those gun totting creatures unfurled in the cantonment area of the KP’s provincial capital. These sensitive minds are still attempting in vain to grasp its slightest and remotest most logic.
Forgive these people with sensitivities, for they have committed a grave sin. But rather than forgiveness, they deserve the harshest punishment there is. Any attempt at grasping logic of such a disease must be declared a crime punishable by the toughest penalty.
After the unfolding of the unthinkable, one feels anxious to learn about the taste that this latest turn of events has left in the mouths of the flag bearers of ‘Change’. Yes, it must spark curiosity of the nation to learn about the feelings of those who had been toiling to bring about something new out of the old Pakistan. They took months and failed. But the Tuesday’s game changers in a matter of few hours ushered in a new era in which we all stand with our skins fully exposed and vulnerable.
Welcome to ‘New Pakistan’!
