At one point of time you feel very frustrated. Your opinion about anything is worthless.
People don't text/ call you and then you realize that you are basically friendless.

You are tired of watching movies/ TV shows/ baby channel etc. You look around and see people getting into Yale, Oxford, LUMS and other great schools. You don't update your FB status because you haven’t done s***.

You become extremely judgmental, judgmental to such an extent that you start judging people by the number of their likes, comments or follower count.

You don't think about anything good, anything meaningful. You ignore all the dreams, dreams of achieving 'something big' in life.

And all of a sudden, you feel like singing Rebecca Black's 'My Moment'!
     You realize that your foreign minister is insanely hot and talented.

You feel good, you feel happy, you want to go out and tell the world that she is representing YOUR country.
p.s. excuse my lame sense of humor.
p.p.s. you know you love it.

'Your rape culture is not my religion.'

Are we really following the Shariah? Are we even living in an Islamic Republic?
Do I need a fatwah in order to keep my dog? I ask why, why do we add so much complications to our belief?

Quoted form Sana Saleem's blog;

'Anchor: One blaringly obvious problem with the Hudood law was the need to present four witnesses in order to convict a rapist, failure to do so resulted in the arrest of the woman on charges of confession to adultery, that was the main issue. 
Munawar Hasan: What is the problem in that?' 

Anchor: The problem is this sir, that according to the 2003 national commission status of women report 80 per cent women were forced to languish in jails because of inability to produce witnesses of their rape. 
Anchor: Sir, are you suggesting that a woman should stay silent after she is raped? That she should not report the crime?
Munawar Hasan: I am saying she should keep quiet if she has no witnesses. If she has witnesses then she should present them

Munawar Hasan makes up for the lack of substance in his argument by accusing the anchor of speaking against the word of God, he then goes thus far as asking the anchor to read the ‘kalima’ and declare his faith. The anchor concludes the argument by suggesting that Islamic laws pertaining to rape should be respected but in the presence of facilities such as forensic study we should not refrain from conviction.'

I hope one day we are mature enough to take extremists like Munawwar Hasan to the court.

'At any given time X, there are Y number of things to be grateful for'.

Dear You-know-who,

Two days before my maths mock your call woke me up,  this time it was a terrible news. You made me read this email from NYU 'It is with regret that I must inform you that we are unable to offer you admission’, you wanted to die, this rejection made future look so blurry, so uncertain.
Two months later I got a call from the same number, this time you were also crying, crying because you got into lums. ‘Ok there is like so much stuff about the hostels and shit, THIS IS SO EXCITING’.
And today you are ' 1 out of 2069 ' in the merit list of Nust Business School.

Thank you for being such an amazing source of inspiration. Thank you for always making me realize the blesssings of God whenever I used to whine.

Life is so damn good, isn't it?


Accidental death of a Mullah.

I belong to that part of the world where drone attacks, suicide bombing and target killing is a part of the daily routine. I belong to that place where there is no concept of freedom of speech and no one dares to offend the ‘father of the nation, Altaf Bhai’.
I belong to that group who would care about Ivy League Schools, Harry Potter, branded clothes but would not go out and protest on energy crises, target killing and other issues.
I belong to a conservative society where gang rape is acceptable and considered to be ‘the victim’s fault’ but alcohol is strictly forbidden, sometimes not even in aftershaves.
I belong to that society in which the President celebrates his birthday in Dubai after taking a godamn notice of the target killings. I hate how the Shea/Sunni, Pathan/ Mahajir issues are never ending.  
I belong to that society where we manage to convince ourselves for a better secure future.  I love how we manage to bring some unity, no matter how messed up the situation is.
