Innocence massacred!!!

Yesterday when I returned from work I was glued to the television set, watching the news of Taliban's' revenge against the Pak Army. It was a sight I never thought I would have witnessed, but I did, we all did. The mother in me cried watching the news, small innocent children were annihilated in the name of religion.

Which religion teaches you to kill unarmed innocent kids? None I believe. You want to fight for your religion? Fight with honour. Fight with equals. For centuries men have fought for they believe is righteous as taught to them through their culture and religion. But they have fought as equals. History tells us that the women, children, aged and unarmed were spared. They were allowed to live. What honour is it to kill people who can not even defend themselves.

That's what makes you terrorists, you are not fighting with honour, you are sneaking up behind the back of the most innocent people and murdering them. There is no honour, no respect in it. You are insulting your religion as well, although I haven't read it, but I am sure the Kuran doesn't tell you to slaughter children.

Many people believe what you sow is what you reap and since Pak is considered to be the terror hub of the world, they deserve what they got. But honestly did the children deserve it? The Pak Army fights for what their country and government believes in, they fought Taliban, but did their children deserve to die like this? Certainly not. The perpetrators of terror and terrorism deserve to die like this, but how many of those Army School students could be identified as one? None I believe.

My heart goes out to all those who lost their lives and all mothers who lost their children. No parent must be subjected to loosing their children like this. Although I am a patriot, but at this one time, I mourn the death of these innocent children who were targeted for religious extremism. I also mourn the death of innocence and childhood of all the children who are indoctrinated into religious extremism at a very early age. Inhuman. Irreligious. Evil.
