Follow up to “45 slaughtered in Pakistan bus”

I received some responses to my last post (“45 slaughtered in Pakistan bus“), two in particular were such that I had to respond to them. I will combine the two as one below and then reproduce my response to them further down.

  • I appreciate all the time & effort you put in sharing your thoughts.  But, I take issue with this statement of yours, “I am not sure if it is shocking that there is little reaction in Pakistan, on the murders of so many people.”  This is not the first time I’ve noticed you making statement about a country you have not visited in eons.  It appears that your views on Pakistan & it’s peoples’ reaction to this tragedy are not based on any facts or reality on the ground. 
    I am currently in Pakistan and am witnessing the impact of this tragedy on this nation first hand.  The whole country is reeling from this incident because of the special place Ismaeli community holds for this country in terms of providing public services to rest of the nation. 
    I wish you would give a second thought before making such blanket statements about a nation that leads the world in food donation and its culture is renowned for its hospitality & generosity.
    The deteriorating situation in Pakistan is so complex that in reality no one knows who is behind all this killing. Forgive my ignorance but I’m lost how such Posts can bring +ve change in Pakistan…..  I respect Jafar for spending so much of his time on writing emails and Blogs.  MaShaAllah he is very knowledgeable and he knows our Prophet (saw) was always humble, polite, and used Hikmah in his conversations. We all should do the same.
Many thanks for sharing your thoughts on this message of mine.
