From the BlogBucket: “Ahmadis Attacked”

In BlogBucket, Minorities on May 30, 2010 at 3:23 pm

Friday’s attacks against two Ahmadi mosques in Lahore elicited troubling responses from government officials, journalists, and society members.  Perhaps some of the most lucid responses to Friday’s atrocities can be found in the Pakistani blogosphere.  Here are some of my favorites:

In my eyes the companies who claim to represent the decent, ‘family-oriented’ and peaceful ‘modern’ sections of the educated urbanites carry an equal amount of blame as do the channels that let hate-mongers run amok in the studios just to jack up their ratings.

We All Have Blood on Our Hands by Tazeen (A Reluctant Mind)

Every identity card and passport holder in Pakistan – including me – who filled out the form declaring themselves true apostles of the faith have denounced the basic citizenship rights of Ahmadis/Qadiyanis. Do we all have blood on our hands? I hang my head in utter shame and say, yes we all have their blood on our hands.
