We Pakistanis

We Pakistanis suffer from a deep feeling of insecurity, and fear the truth might become too widely known. To cover up we teach our students lie after lie, instilling paranoia and xenophobia. We do not discuss the loss of half of Pakistan because that might endanger the holy Two Nation Theory, we refuse to teach comparative religions because that might establish other religions as legitimate systems of belief, and we vilify all who are different from us. The result: the horrific Peshawar church bombing, Alamdar Road blasts, and countless bombings remain unprotested by all except a tiny sliver of the population. We have lost our humanity, and this is squarely a consequence of the hate-filled, mind-warping poisons injected into young minds through their schools.
