A war which is not yet over
SALMAAN Taseer’s martyrdom is not just the death of a great leader but also the death of justice! It is the death of all hopes of the minorities who looked up to him for their protection. This is a dark day in the history of this country and we should all be ashamed of ourselves. I suggest the extremist elements in this country not to delude themselves from what they have won.
They succeeded in killing Salmaan Taseer, who was an asset to the cause of humanity. However, we will not cry, instead we will celebrate for we have proven that we are determined enough to give up our lives for the sake of our cause. Not the one who kills but the one who is ready to get killed is the stronger one. We shall not let Salmaan Taseer’s great sacrifice go to waste, we will continue with his cause and fight till we succeed or every last one of us meets the same fate as his! The war is not over yet.
Until and unless religion and the state are separated, Pakistani society will get uglier with every passing day. We must not let the mullahs suffocate liberal voices. It is time to stand up. It is time to say no to ‘mullahism’.
