The last sun of the tumultuous 2010 set in Islamabad with the echoes of obnoxious speeches made by some Parliamentarians! They were attacking each other's female family members in our "honor-conscious" tribal Pakistan. The "engineered" show was watched millions of people on the "free" media. Like the WikiLeaks, this nasty show also proved an eye-opener for our terrorized 170 million people!
No matter women are in the corridors of power or in the streets, they're being treated less than human beings! Not only the uneducated lot in rural areas, but the westernized and urbanized Parliamentarians also prefer to attack the womenfolk of their enemies in revenge! And this is a typical strategy of the Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) and its political heirs! The readers of our group blogs know how brutally the spies tried to play this cruel strategy in the Habib Sulemani case – biggest mass murder plot exposed last year.
Women face many social challenges in the world especially in our patriarchal society. The Terrorland Team (TTT) wants to celebrate 2011 as a Year of Women and Democracy for many reasons. Therefore, we'll focus on democracy and woman's issues. It's a very risky job in Pakistan where the liberals and conservatives both have joined the tyrants and oppressors willingly or out of fear!!
Although fragile, but The Terrorland will continue to play the role of a critic of government policies. We want our terrorized country out of the self-created mess so that there is peace and prosperity in the country. And the world starts respecting us as a civilized nation state. Pakistan shouldn't be a terrorland!—(TTT)
The sun has set for you!
