Pakistan is still messed up


I got some good news and some bad news. I’ll give you the good news first; according to the latest Pew Poll, Pakistani support of the Taliban and al Qaeda has been declining over the past few years, and more and more people are concerned over extremism in the country. They also are beginning to see that educating women is important. All of this sounds pretty encouraging, right?

Ok, now that we’ve covered the good stuff, it’s time for the bad news. It seems that Pakistanis are increasingly supporting severe laws; roughly 83% of the population supports stoning adulterers, while 78% of them want the death penalty to be applied to apostates. An overwhelming majority also support giving judicial power to religious judges, which is essentially the same thing as handing over the keys to your house to a raving fucking lunatic.

The majority of Pakistanis also believe India is a major threat to their security, mainly due to the fucking depressing quagmire that is Kashmir. Considering both of these countries are nuclear powers, the threat of armed conflict should scare the living shit out of everyone. Pakistan is a damn mess, and I have great fears the situation there is not improving. What’s the solution? I’m not sure, but I can tell you one thing; if anyone has any doubts religion isn’t the main source of these problems, kindly jump off a bridge please.

    So it’s basically as close as it gets to Hell on Earth?

    Pakistan separated from India claiming that Muslims cannot live in a country where Hindus are the majority. That there would be no peace that way. So the Islamic Republic of Pakistan was formed out of India, which continued to be secular by constitution (India’s first Prime Minister was an atheist!)

    But more Muslims continued to stay in a secular India than the entire population of Islamic Pakistan. Muslims have reached places in India (our last president was Muslim), but they continue to fight each other in the country they created claiming Muslims will be at peace with each other in “their land”. (Continue to screw each other, I don’t care. But they also support Pakistani terrorists who blow themselves up on Indian streets).

    Kashmir is another such place. Pakistan claims that Kashmir should be a part of them because a majority of Kashmiris are Muslim. Does anyone else see the flawed logic?

    The Kashmir that’s under India, has had regular election since Independence. The voted turn-out usually exceeds 60%, which is the normal voter turn out in the rest of India too. So if Kashmiris did not want to be with India, why would a majority vote? (Note: The UN monitors each election, and they have mentioned that the central government has committed no voter fraud. The numbers are legit).

    Religion is THE cause to all problems around here.

    Thank god I’m atheist.

    Cricket is the answer! It brings people together. They need another Wasim Akram… or Waqar Younis.
