In Islam, a fatwa is described as a definitive statement from the wisdom of the greatest religion of the world. In truth, the western world is now deciphering the very elements of the crude elements that are demolishing the existence of Pakistan. The very root causes will be found in the ISI offices, Pentagon head quarters and Indian intelligence agencies. You have to be really sick to really kill so many innocent people like this. Only the worst enemies can annihilate with such momentum and force.
Many of my friends have died today. Interestingly enough, no revolt against the people or the government. We are leading are our lives as if nothing happened. Again the Muslim communities residing in Lahore, Pakistan is silent. The revolution will never begin even after another barbaric attempt of killing the harmony of hundreds of families. This is a country whose president has a fraud case against him, the governor of Lahore Salman Taseer drinks openly and the Punjab Chief Minister is simply in love with women. In Islam, it is mandatory to revolt against harm and the killings of innocent lives. Look at Hussain and how he laid his life to save the principles of truth. As Muslims today, we are silent. And our silence is Kufar. Kufar means the defiance against Islam. Today, I write this poem with a broken heart. Through this you will realize how we died together but were buried separately. Wake up Pakistan!
Our silence is Kufar (defiance of Islam)
As we bury our mutilated bodies
We accept gifts from the PPP and PML elected donkeys
We let our tears dry with the towels of insanity
Today, again Lahore is colored red
Red as my blood
Red as the blood of my uncle who died in the Allama Iqbal town massacres
Red as the faces of the children who die each day innocently in the streets of Peshawar
Red as your wine Salman Taseer!
That you drink each night before a woman entices you
Red as the brick walls of the palace of Shahbaz Sharif
He cannot see the red swollen eyes of the children who have buried their fathers
Fatherless men have no morals
It is to be written in history today
That our silence is defiance of Islam
We shall no longer declare ourselves as Muslims
We cannot hang the culprits
We cannot wipe away the guilt
