Wake up, Mr Prime Minister

Published Jan 17, 2014 07:22am

Wake up, Mr Prime Minister! The country is going to the dogs. Will you wake up when terrorists knock at your door and wake you up?

Look what they have done. They have killed and injured 50,000 innocent people. They killed 5,000 soldiers.

They have killed 15-year-old Aitezaz. They have shot and wounded 15-year-old Malalah in the head. They have killed Chaudhry Aslam, our great and courageous cop. They behead and skin small children. They blow up our schools, hospitals, markets, places of worship, our military bases, they play with the severed heads of our brave soldiers and yet we do nothing and beg those rebels for peace.

Your minister says it’s difficult to fight them off. If it’s difficult, then let the US use its drones freely against them. Take the help from Nato forces. Just don’t sit idle and wait for the peace process. You cannot cut a peace deal with them. They don’t accept our constitution. They want to enforce their version of sharia in this land, and you want to talk to them.

Wake up, Mr Prime Minister, wake up before it’s too late.
