How Much More Suffering?

One shudders at the thought of the sacrifice our brothers and sisters had to go through during the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947 on both sides. What immense burden of having to detach yourself from the soil of your ancestors only to migrate through hostile conditions, hoping that you will survive and all of this for what…? A democratic nation where fundamental rights of citizens were guaranteed irrespective of religion, this was the vision of Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. The attack that took place a few days ago in Chakwal on a mosque and the simultaneous apathy from the police officials is a bitter indication that Ali Jinnah’s vision remains a distant afterthought. How much more suffering is needed before Pakistan wakes up?
