Militants have once again raided an educational institution in northwest Pakistan. The attack at Bacha Khan University has seen over 21 people killed and many injured after the militants stormed the University campus. The militants were met with resistance from security forces and after a period of intense gun fighting, the situation was brought under control.
The reality is that Pakistan has become a basket case and has always teetered on being a failed state.
The global silence on the targeting of the Shia in Pakistan is sickening... Next time you hear a political leader speak about human rights, why don't you ask him where his voice was when Shia were being murdered in Pakistan? The Shia of Pakistan are an asset to Pakistan which should be protected at all costs. As politicians have rightly mentioned, if Jews left Europe, Europe would not be Europe any more. Well, if the Shia of Pakistan left Pakistan, Pakistan would not be Pakistan any more.
Now is not the time to doubt our capacity to do good in the world, nor to understand and embrace those that would do evil. Now is the time to fight for the children of the world. This war will be without end, till the blood of those prepared to put kids in the crosshairs runs no more.
