Malik Ishaq (Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Chief) Practising Infantry Skills with the Elite Police Force

POSTED ON
July 09



Here is a fleeting video that shows Malik Ishaq (Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Chief) borrowing the gun from an Elite Police Force policeman and firing a round in the air. Now, Malik Ishaq (Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Chief) surely fires many rounds during his routine life and 
this video should be of no surprise. However, this momentary clip stands out in its import because it shows to what the country’s government and security agencies are complicit with the terrorists. This is yet another blatant manifestation of the depths to which the rule of law has sunk in this country and further proof that even as the government issues statements against the extremism, it simultaneously deals with sectarian terrorists in a manner that runs directly contrary to both the imperatives of maintaining law and order and the fundamental tenets of democracy.

Imagine that you live in Afghanistan. Your ancestors have lived there for hundreds of years, but you are a minority. In fact, you are a minority two times over, because the religion you practice is different from the one most people practice, and the way you look is different from the way most people look.
