Today, in Pakistan we, the people are experiencing the wrath of the state against free speech and demonstration; In this fledging democracy, the people are being forced to take sides when in fact they should be able to simply be bystanders (something we are accustomed to) or participants to either side and put their weight behind one or the other, while 2 conflicting entities proceed to clash at a time when we least need chaos; its about mind over matter, they (the state) don’t mind and we (the People) don’t matter!!!
People have become watchers rather than participants in this new democratic freedom to demonstrate. all around the Country, the might and force of the state is bent upon depriving us the people of this right, as I sit here blogging; I know that the power of the pen is mightier than the baton (sword) but we dont read any more, sadly we only watch and listen to the TV so we are mesmerized into inaction! instead of questioning rather then accepting the status quo.
