Our condolences to the family of the late Benazir Bhutto due to her untimely and unjustified death. Her death has sparked outrage from all corners of the world pointing again to extremism as the most likely culprit. Some blame those who do not want to relinquish power, others still blame those who aim to promote disarray in the volatile Muslim world. At a time when Muslims cry oppression from all sides, people have turned into that fear using it as a weapon brainwashing thousands upon thousands of people to become martyrs for their faith.
It has been said again and again that the Koran never has any mention of killing as a way of punishing the guilty nor does it state that dying for the faith fast-tracks their entry into Mecca. The Koran abhors violence and is founded on peace with man and all other things. People have used religious beliefs and infused them with personal and even political workings turning the good news into something straight out of a terrorist training camp. Even the lowly peace loving Mickey Mouse, the ultimate symbol of fun and kids has been used to promote propaganda regarding political views.
She was the first elected Woman in a Muslim country to take the role of leader, though her career was marred by accusations of corruption and other issues who in the political world hasn’t been. The future of Pakistan now lies in the balance and the world is holding it’s breath as they try to resolve the internal turmoil which will hopefully be quelled by the elections scheduled early next year. Where do you get justification for killing another person just because she/he stands for a different political view? Why do people end up dying as they aim to serve the many? Many questions have been asked and the sparks of turmoil have been lighted anew in an already volatile political area that is Pakistan. No religion on this earth is founded on violence and corruption ask any religious scholar and you will find the true nature of violence as being based with man himself. Violence is the easy way and the truth is the hard way (which may be the reason for many embracing the easy way). Our deepest condolences to her family and to all the victims or unjustified killings that happen all over the world in this time and season of supposed joy.
