Pak- May God Save You!
Pak- May God Save You!

T he two main countries India & Pakistan, which are the constituents of the main organization SAARC, a group of South Asian countries, have become centre of attraction in the world these days. The reason of attraction of India is its day by day growing economy & possibility of achieving a position as a developed nation by 2020. Whereas its neighourhood Pakistan has become a point of attraction because of its day by day worsening political conditions & besides instability in Pakistan, there is nurturing of terrorist thoughts.
As far as the question is of political conditions in Pakistan, the struggle between democratic setup & Pakistan army is not a new phenomenon. In fact, Pakistan army too considers itself able & responsible to supervise & run the country, equally to the persons associated with the democratic setup. That's why, the Pakistan army, especially the Pakistan army chiefs, who have desire to become the ruler, dethrone the democratic setup, whenever they get the chance. The military rulers don't hesitate to behave badly to the elected members of the democratic governments, if they needs. It may be to imprison, to exile or to hang them. The Pak army never hesitates to take any of these steps. The last days witnessed the emergency, dissolution of the Pak constitution & even disowning of the Supreme Court & establishment of new Supreme Court in Pakistan.
Anyhow, Pakistan President Parvez Musharraf, by his planned military policy, keeping control over the rule of Pakistan is trying to show the world that Pakistan is on its way to democracy. The removal of emergency in Pakistan & the elections in near future are also evidences to it. But analysts are viewing that Musharraf may have changed his face from General Musharraf to President Musharraf, but even now the Pak administration is not free from the pressure & control of the Pak army. On one side Pakistanis are feeling uneasy for the last 6 decades because of the control of power between the Pak army & the custodians of the democracy. On the other side, Pakistan has become a nursery of terrorism, terrorist thoughts & Islami religionists. It has a hard proof that Musharraf declared emergency mainly because of the uncontrollable terrorist activities.
Before the declaration of emergency in Pak, the terrorists had started a series of aiming at the army but this decreased a lot after the declaration of emergency. But will terrorism reach on end or decrease in Pakistan? It is matter of great concern for the world that how far this Pak nurtured terrorism will affect the world mainly India & South Asia. The main reason of the attack on Iraq by America is being considered the terrorism backed by Islam but the poisonous & full of hatred thoughts being spread by the Islami fundamentalists have no less contribution in it. The main reason of the spread of hatred in the world is being considered as the Islami religionist thoughts that they are the real & right devotees of God & all other non-Muslims are not accepted as the devotees of God by them.
The growth of terrorist activities has not only worried the Pakistani rulers & the administrators but its main ally America is also worried & serious over it. some years back, when the training camps in the secret places of the Pak occupied Kashmir were destroyed, then not only the Indian Kashmir & many other parts of India came in its spate but the terrorism showed its presence in Red Mosque of Islamabad also. And these worsening conditions made Pakistan to declare emergency. But the fresh reports about he nurturing of terrorism in Pakistan are too terrible to be believed. But unfortunately this report is based on truth & is totally believable.
After misusing the poor, the illiterate & the unemployed youths in its mission of terrorism, these anti-human fundamentalists are using innocent children in the unfair aims. The children of the age group of three years to five years or seven years, who are of the age where children drink milk & play, eat, drink & make merry, are being introduced with the sophisticated weapons such as AK 47. At many secret places in Pakistan, children are being trained as suicide bombs just in a play way method. The children are taken in the name of religion from the poor parents. As compensation, the unfortunate poor parents are given some money & they are made to believe that the child would either be a triumphant or a martyr. Those fundamentalists misguide the illiterate & poor persons of the society. They are convinced that under the above two conditions, the boy would go to heaven. There is the news that the number of such children has reached to millions & these are used for wicked aims by the terrorists. There can't be more horrible truth for Pakistan than this.
Just opposite to it, in China, a neighbour country of Pakistan, if we talk about the mentality of the children, there too, children of the age group of three to five years are used But they are used to take part in games & to win more gold medals in the Olympic Games. Regarding the preparations about the coming Olympic Games in China, the small & innocent children have been regularly given training about gymnastic. But the only aim of the parents of these children is to get more & more gold medals & not to prepare them as terrorists or suicide bombers or 'traders of the heaven'.
Some psychologists are of the opinion that most of the children get 80% of their cultural traditions, habits & behaviour up to the age of five. And the rest of the 20%, the children get from the prevailing all-round environment. If these facts are true, then the future of these children can be easily imagined who are face to face with the dangerous weapons, suicide bombers, religionist mentality even under the age of five. Can someone expect & hope about love, affection, humanity, forgiveness & cooperation from these innocent children? And the greatest point of worry is how far will this nursery of terrorism being brought up in Pakistan be fatal to the Islam religion & the Muslim world & at the same time be harmful to the innocent people?
