Turmoil in Pakistan

Our [1] insensitive jerk from Pakistan is still paralysed over dealing with religious extremism in the country. When the fuck is he going to pull his head out of the sand? Eight died and over 20 injured when gunmen [2] opened fire as worshippers from the Ahmadiyya sect in Punjab state.

Interior Minister Aftab Sherpao said: “We condemn this attack. Any act of violence in which innocent people are killed should be condemned.”

Shahbaz Bhatti, head of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance, also condemned the killings, but said the government had failed to protect minorities.

In Pak, this doesn’t happen just to [3] Ahmadiyyas, but also frequently to the [4] Shias. Pakistan also had its [5] first gay marriage, but its unlikely to open a flood of others.

On hearing of the wedding, a tribal council told the pair to leave the area or be killed for breaking religious and tribal “values and ethics”.

I’m more worried about the fact that the old man was buying the young kid. Hmmmm…
