Oh I dont know what to write. OF COURSE I am horrified and disgusted at what happened in Lahore today. And that too to the Sri Lankan team- the nicest bunch of people. I am so ashamed that these people who did this could belong to my country. And I feel so angry that I am profiled along with them. That millions of sports fans have to pay the price of what these misguided, law-less selfish people think they were doing in the name of…well what exactly was this in the name of? Dont say Islam becaue I wont buy it. Dont say anything actually because I wont buy it right now. Right now I am the mother who is royally pissed off at her child for doing something so rude and uncalled for that you wantto physically make sure he doesnt do it again. I dont want another day spent feeling like we as country have done today and yes, the people here are good and honest and want nothing better than to live an ordinary wonderful life; one that is free of militants, and conspiracy theories and terrorism and polticians. Yes please just remove all our leaders please thank you, God, they are all bonfide losers.
My personal heartfelt apologies to the Srilankan team and to their country. All I can say is that I hope – having had similar issues in your country you know that this isnt what defines the entire country. We are in the midst of an actual issue right now. The minority that wants this madness to reign supreme is unfortunately those very people who are getting more gutsy and ballsy about doing these inhumane ridiculous things. We who live here are as much to blame for our inability to do something about it yes, but we are also victims of this craziness. The people who did this are not part of our country- or any country- their motives are selfish and largely for no clear reason and they will pay for it in the final balance of things. Right now is again a time for prayer and hope, realization and action that Pakistan cannot be made to mean this in the eyes of the world over and over again by the disgusting people behind this.
As for the cricket part of it, like the whole class suffers for the uncalled for behaviour of the jerk in class, we must too. And maybe in that time out, while serving our detention, we shall find the strength to garner enough in us to pull out the stops and finally take a stand that shows the world that the real Pakistan- and Pakistani- are nothing like this. Amen.
