Signs & Symptoms of a Failed State
Again government has shown its weakness against street power.
No muslim can stand the heinous & blasphemous acts which were committed by French magazine.
But what should be the manner of protest? In order to make west realize its mistake and to show them sentiments of muslims.
We should try to convey the true teachings of Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him.
Alas! the attitude and gestures which we show to the world are far away from the teachings of Quran and Prophet Peace Be Upon Him.
Whole country was shocked due to the attitude of protestors after they attacked law enforcement personnel.
It is reported that 2 Officers were martyred while performing there duties.
Interior minister Sheikh Rasheed who is considered as a perfect man for the job also took initiative & declared TLP as banned outfit.
While protest continued in Lahore when government tried to free roads & public spaces from the protestors it spread to other cities.
During this few TLP members were also killed & then other clerics such as Mufti Muneeb also joined the protest.
At that very point government realized its weakness and dialogue was initiated with a banned TLP.
After government presented a resolution for the exile of French ambassador in the National Assembly, TLP called it a day and withdrew from its country wide protest.
What Should We Learn as a Nation:
This protest has raised few questions and showed us signs of our failure as a nation.
Can brutal protest is justified in the name of Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him?
Is the action taken against TLP by government was enough?
Can we burn our own country to protest against the heinous actions of some one else?
Why each and every government is helpless to act against the religious extremism?
We need to find answers to these questions in order to take step towards the dawn to further away from wilderness and darkness.
