I am at a loss of words today. This has left me reeling to a point that I feel ashamed today to associate myself with Pakistan because the perpetrators of this barbaric act also happen to be Pakistanis. Below is the footage of the crime carried out by a violent mob in presence of police officers in light of the day.
Sialkot district police chief Waqar Chauhan, eight other policemen and hundreds of people watched the lynching. The video aired by news channels showed that the youths were hit repeatedly by some men. The mob later hung the bodies of the brothers upside down in a square. According to a First Information Report filed by the police, the brothers were going to meet their relatives in Buttar village when some people caught them and accused them of being robbers. In a brazen display of mob justice, they tortured the brothers, killed them and then hung their bodies and tried to burn them. The family of the youths has demanded justice and stern legal action against police officials who failed to rescue the brothers. The family said the youths were killed in the wake of a dispute over a cricket match they played some time ago. The deputy commissioner of Sialkot said a charged mob killed the two brothers for injuring four people in a dispute over a cricket match.
These two innocent brothers of age 17 and 15 (one of whom was a Hafiz of Quran) were brutally beaten and killed in presence of police officers, hanged infront of a police station, and their hanging dead bodies were beaten again. These innocent brothers were observing their fast.
I cannot even begin to imagine the pain and suffering they endured, and it crushes my heart to think of their parents who are now going through this terrible ordeal of... Who should I look forward to now? it's obvious the law enforcement agencies cannot protect us, the political elite is corrupt, there is a natural disaster sweeping through this country, the terrorists are killing us from all directions, even God seems to have left us for the dead.
The Pakistani's I know of don't condone any of this, they value human life, they're tolerant, and above all, they have fear of God in their hearts and minds. It's unfortunate that this majority that I am a part of is being represented by a breed of animals who happen to be in the minority. What can we do about it? Kill them all? Is revolution and violence the answer to all? I have so many doubts, so many questions. It feels like I was killed by that mob too, along with the rest of the aforementioned majority. It feels as if there is no hope left and we must abandon ship at once and for all. It feels as if the rest of the world thinks I was a part of this mob.
May their souls rest in peace forever till eternity and beyond - Ameen.
