An article by a Pakistani Woman

I started work in Pakistan. I worked two jobs because there was so much to do and not enough time to do it . I was inspired and energized. I was hopeful and optimistic.

Today I am neither.
 Today, the elected representatives of the people turned Pakistan into Talibanistan.
 Today we handed over a part of the country to them. I wonder how much longer before we surrender it all.

Today we legislated that a group of criminals would be in charge of governing and dispensing justice in a part of Pakistan according to their own obscurantist views.
 They have declared that the rulings of their courts will be supreme and no other court in the land can challenge them. 
They have also declared that their men who killed and maimed innocent civilians, waged war against the Pakistani army and blew up girls schools will be exempt from punishment under this law . Hence today we legislated lawlessness in Swat. 
In Swat this signal disturbing possibilities. Either our politicians are too afraid to stand up to criminals or maybe they don't possess the foresight to gauge the national impact of this action. 
There is no hope for a country led by TALIBAANIS INHUMAN - barbarians.
Our legislators are deaf to the threats issued by the Taliban to anyone opposing their legislation? 
 
How can I feel secure in a country where the army, despite receiving the largest chunk of our resources, cannot defeat a bunch of thugs , inhuman , barbarians ?
 How can I expect justice when there are different laws for different citizens, and I as a woman am a  lower than third class citizen?
 How can I be inspired by a country where there is no culture, no music, no art, no poetry and no innovative thought?
How can I be expected to return to a country where women are beaten and flogged publicly, 
where my daughters will not be allowed to go to school, 
where my sisters will die of common diseases because male doctors cannot see them? 
How can I be expected to call that country home that denies me the rights given me by my Constitution ,
I refuse to live in a country where women like me are forced to rot behind the four walls of their homes and not allowed to use their education to benefit the nation.
 By endorsing the NAR and giving in to the Taliban, Parliament has sapped my hope and optimism. Parliament has dealt a deathly blow to the aspirations of the millions of young Pakistanis who struggle within and outside the country, fuelled by sheer patriotism, for a peaceful, prosperous and progressive Pakistan. 
When there is no hope, no optimism, no security, no justice, no education, no progress, no culture  there is no Pakistan. Maybe it is because I am the grandchild of immigrants who was raised on stories of hope, patriotism and sacrifice that even in this misery .
I cannot forget that Pakistan was created to protect the lives, property, culture and future of the Muslims of the Subcontinent.
{{ NO !  NOW YOU KNOW IF YOU MUSLIMS DID NOT ASK FOR PARTITION OF INDIA AND STAYED IN INDIA AS ONE YOU WOULD HAVE ENJOYED FREEDOM AS INDIAN MUSLIMS ARE ! AND INDIA ALSO WOULD NOT SUFFERED IN THE HANDS OF ISLAAMIC - TERRORIST - ATTACKS . BECAUSE OF JINNAA INDIA AND PAKISTAAN BOTH ARE SUFFERING . }} 
 It was not established to be a safe haven for terrorists and to import the culture of Saudi Arabia..
 We fought so that we could protect the culture of the Muslims of the Subcontinent. {{{ NO ! YOU DID NOT FIGHT TO PROTECT THE CULTURE OF THE MUSLIMS . MUSLIMS KILLED 5 MILLION HINDUUS AND REST OF THE HINDUUS WERE FORCED TO LEAVE THAT PART OF INDIA WHICH IS NOW PAKISTAN TO CREATE MUSLIM MAJORITY TO DECLARE THAT PART OF INDIA TO BE ISLAAMIC COUNTRY . BECAUSE OF MUSLIMS DESIRE HINDUUS SUFFERED AND HAD TO LEAVE THEIR AND THEIR ANCESTORS - PART OF INDIA. }}} 
 Our ancestors laid down their lives so that the Muslims of the Subcontinent  both men and women - could live in a land free of prejudice, not so that they could be subjected to violent discrimination of the basis of sect and gender. 

I hope we can revive the spirit of national unity of 1947 and lock arms to battle the monster of the Taliban that threatens our existence.
 Talibanistan is an insult to my Pakistan. I want my country back. 
PLEASE NOTE WHO FORSAKE THEIR ANCESTRAL RELIGION ---- HINDUUISM ---- AND ACCEPTED ISLAAM OR CHRISTIANITY OR ANY OTHER RELIGION WILL WITHER THE WAY THE LEAF WHICH FALLS FROM THE TREE WITHERS . IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY FREEDOM ,EQUALITY , FREEDOM OF SPEECH THEN GO BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL RELIGION ---HINDUUISM ---THE OLDEST RELIGION OF THE WORLD.
HINDUU RELIGION IS AS OLD AS HUMANE RACE,
JEWS AND PAARSI RELIGIONS ABOUT 5 THOUSANDS ,
BUDDHISMS AND JAINISM ABOUT 2.5 THOUSAND ,
CHRISTIANITY ABOUT 2 THOUSAND ,
ISLAAM ABOUT 14 HUNDRED , 
SIKHISM ABOUT 3 HUNDRED YEARS OLD .
 THE WHOLE - HUMAN - RACE'S ORIGINAL RELIGION IS HINDUISM . PEOPLE CAN CHANGE THEIR THINKING , FOOD - HABITS , WAY OF LIFE - STYLE BUT CAN NOT CHANGE THEIR BLOOD AND GENES . EVERY ONE HAS HINDUU - BLOOD AND HINDUU - GENES .
The way Muslims are producing CHILDREN by MILTY PULE WIVES and conversion the whole world will be TALIBAAN STHAAN in a very near future . In England Muslim population in 4 years became 10 times . In India in a few years Muslim population doubled  .
