Prayer for a peaceful Pakistan.
Pakistani Christians gather in a local Brampton Church to remember the families who lost lives in the barbaric twin bomb blasts that went off in Peshawar – Pakistan. Leaders of other South Asian communities also came in reasonable numbers to show their solidarity and support. It is no secret how minorities are treated in Pakistan, they are openly treated not only as third class citizens, but all levels of law enforcing agencies and the government just turns a blind eye and seem powerless in front of the fanatic religious (Islamic) clergy which often dictates their unreasonable terms and demands. All governments till date seem powerless from the day Pakistan was declared an Islamic republic, and the noble message of Mohammad Ali Jinnah (founder of Pakistan) “that equality for all citizens of Pakistan would be implemented irrespective of their caste, creed or religion” seems to be totally lost in this confused state of affairs that is in place in Pakistan of today and no one dares to question.
Every member of the minority community urges the western governments to look more closely into this issue and question the so called independent governments and political leaders of Pakistan.
As the only law implemented and in place in Pakistan is the “law of the jungle” and don’t we all know what that usually means?
