Yet another murderous day, claiming 70 plus lives in KP has blazed the electronic media around the world. The same old suicide bombers targeting innocent civilians, in the “House of GOD.” The place which is supposed to be a sanctuary for any human being. Avenge, revenge, blood, cries, fear, pain and despair. Some how our psyche is constantly being tested by these words. The loss of life has become the order of the day. Those who call the perpetrators of such acts, “beasts” are fairly humble. In my opinion, not a single word in any dictionary can rightfully encapsulate this savagery. Yet again, a famous organization immediately claims responsibility of such unprecedented act of valor.
Certain elements in the media go buzzing about this sheer brutality being cost of doing business with the US. The poor Mujahids are avenging the drone strikes by slaying their own brethren to send a befitting response to Washington. Then there are those, who realize that this monster is the enemy within and the nation is dying from the inside. Condemnations like this scribe, may come and go, but there is one thing for certain, the 70 families or more, may not be the same forever.
The enemy is coward and spine less. This is the reason why he picks on innocent people who are either worshiping or travelling or just about managing their daily lives. After all for the enemy, its a jungle and inflicting harm is all he knows. Preying on unsuspecting and unarmed people gives the infamous enemy a great sense of accomplishment. I call it the highest act of cowardice. Whether it is Pakistan or around the world, the recurrent theme of this enemy is so pathetic.
The recent statement of the Number 2, of this enemy, should not come as a surprise at all. This is a new threat in response to the 86 year sentence awarded to a convicted Dr. And supposedly the “daughter of this nation.” The voice of the enemy repeats the same rhetoric, which all the spokes holes of his beloved organization, tend to repeat.
These calls that provoke Muslims to wage Jihad against Infidels are quite amusing and laughable. Because only GOD knows, who has accepted or rejected HIM. Human Beings do not possess a device for this inspection. However, in our neck of the woods, anyone who looks, speaks or prays differently supposedly fits the bill, perhaps in the perverted logic of the enemy and his cohorts.
Declaring any and everybody an infidel on a whim, has become the hallmark of the enemy. Most Christians or Jews, in Islam are considered, the “People of Book.” This is clearly referencing their belief of Abrahamic faith and the revealed books of Bible and Torah. Hence they cannot be considered “Infidels” at all. They believe in the “One ness” of GOD much like Muslims. But the enemy is ruthless and careless. The darkness in his heart has permeated his soul completely. Hence to him the entire world is wrong and only he is right.
If his ability to cause harm is restricted, then he resorts to corrupting the cargo headed overseas. Desperate and despicable, just hell-bent to cause death and destruction. With each slain body, his thirst and hunger for more increases. The enemy is within us. Its tentacles are increasing day by day. To those who are seeking the enemy at some other borders, “the enemy is within.” It is a malignant tumor, which has to be removed rather swiftly. The messiah please don’t wait any more. Don’t hesitate any more.
