Random enough to be declared weird.

Quaid, Firefighters and us

No Comments

This is supposed to be a very short post Because I don’t have much to say
I really hope that I can think of something better and write more but I guess I am not good at this so I will simply include some chat logs

<Wizard> Quaid-e-Azam ki wajah se Pakistan Aazaad howa aur logon ne unhain hee bhula dia
<StoryTeller> He was the leader, but saying he is the sole responsible for our freedom is not true many people sacrificed there lives and even children for Azadi
<Wizard> okay but why do we have to neglect our leader’s birthday?
<StoryTeller> I guess not giving a public holiday is fine but there should be programs and events organized to honor him
<Wizard> Bhai, for 27th they have arranged FREE Bus Ride from anywhere to Larkana everywhere I go people asking “Tum larkana jarahay ho?”, media per har taraf yaheeh hay news channels per news se ziada is din ki baat horahee hay
<Wizard> Who is paying for all that? the tax-payers?
<StoryTeller> But how many actually pay tax?
<Wizard> If they stop wasting tax money on Shadi in PM House and Such events and if people can see that there hard-earned cash is utilized properly THEY WILL PAY TAX
<StoryTeller> nah
<Wizard> Khair that’s not the point the point is that we have neglected the nation’s leader, but we are remembering a martyred party leader in a very huuuge way, Liaquat Ali Khan was martyred as well we don’t remember him like this so why 27 has to be an exception?
<lameKid> and no one talked about several fire fighters who died at Ghakar Plaza sukker
<Wizard> yes, they are the heroes they died while trying to save others
<StoryTeller> but 27 is for remembering a hero too
<Wizard> Yes, but why only 27th Why not 25th, why not salute the heroes of 23rd December? Why not honor those who sacrificed there lives in the three wars?
<StoryTeller> hmm saheeh baat hay yaar
<lameKid> itna kharcha event per kia gaya, media coverage, free bus rides, everything but nothing for heroes of 23rd december, OR Quaid
<lameKid> even jo compensation announce ki gayee hain unhain un ke relatives tak pohanchne main pata naheen kitna time lage, kitne dhakke khane paren unhain
<StoryTeller> pohanche bhi ya naheen who knows
<Wizard> sad

I am not against anything or anyone 27th is definitely for a hero, a great leader but we shouldn’t neglect others as well

There is a song being played by Najam Shiraz on TheMusik etc today most probably it is dedicated to this date it has a line/verse: “Hum koi shahadat bhoolay naheen bhoolay naheen Mitti ki mohabbat bhoolay naheen”

I just wish that it was true
