Who was Aamir Cheema?

Who was Aamir Cheema? A Hero, A Shaheed or an Unfortunate Misguided Soul?

Aamir Cheema was a student in Germany. Apparently he went to assassinate the editor of Die Welt newspaper for publishing the infamous cartoons. Security arrested him in the lobby of the building and he was allegedly carrying a knife and told the police that he was going to kill the editor. He was arrested by the police. But later according to the German authorities he committed suicide while in prison. According to German authorities an autopsy was performed in the presence of two Pakistani FIA officials. The autopsy showed that there were no marks indicating physical violence.

Read: Herald Tribune [This is a biased report from International Herald Tribune]
Read: Asia Media @ UCLA

Did he attack, or did he only intend to attack? Or did he tell that to the security guards in the lobby, which means that he was really pissed off (that is, temporarily insane). Either way, he was not a murderer or an assassin, or a terrorist for that matter. He was just a very pissed off and stressed out young man. Now why would he commit suicide? This is again not clear. Did the Pakistani Ambassador to Germany meet this kid in the prison? Forget the Ambassador, did anyone from the Pakistani Embassy go and talk to him while he was in custody? Was an attorney for his defense arranged? Was the Pakistani Embassy notified by the German police?

I assure you that the two FIA officials that they deputed to watch over the autopsy were also equally incompetent. The government should have sent the top coroner or a professor of Forensic Medicine from KEMC, instead of these two morons from FIA. This just goes to show that our top officials have their heads so far down up their behinds that they cannot think or see straight. These morons got a free trip to Germany to buy stuff for their wives and children from TA/DA.

Please tell me how could an idiot a moron from FIA [like a blind and a deaf] can tell by “observing” an autopsy being performed by German authorities if there was any foul-play? Are they experts in Forensic Medicine? Did they make sure that the body was sealed after the suicide was discovered? How did they confirm that there was no tampering by the German police and other officials? Are we going to take the Germans for their word on it? Should we take their word for it under the circumstances? Why was an expert in Forensics not sent on the trip?

There are so many questions but no answers. Only a lot of horse-sh*t is being dolled out by the most incompetent people on the planet – GOP

The problem is that they should have taken over the body and conducted autopsy not just looking for signs of physical violence on the skin, but also the detailed analysis of the other organs to see if he was asphyxiated or traumatized in any other way. Nothing about this case makes sense.

Unfortunately, we have very incompetent people in the top echelons of the GOP. And the tragedy is that these people are oblivious of their responsibilities to the nation. And if you dare remind them, they would shamelessly disagree and blame someone else.

I am not saying that Aamir was murdered, but I am saying that again we screwed up in the way he handled the whole affair. I think the main issue is how his case was mishandled by the Pakistani Consulate and the Embassy, and afterwards by the Government.

There is always a test of goodness: Would the situation have been different if it was son of the Pakistani Ambassador to Germany?

Also, a few questions that all Pakistanis should ask themselves: What is wrong with our youth and what are we teaching them? What kind of stupid brain-washing drove this young man to pull an extremely stupid stunt like this? What is this nation and its younger generation coming to? Have we forgotten the basic teachings of the Prophet (PBUH)? Is he really a hero and “shaheed” or a very unfortunate and extremely misguided soul?
