Anymore Red Mosques?

I have some questions (three Ws) in my mind regarding this situation, can you help me answer these?

Why such situations like Red Mosque surface?

What would be the consequences on individual level and international level?

When will we get rid of extremism in disguise of misguidance?

In my personal opinion, social injustice is the root cause factor for such crisis. Consequences, no one would trust religious leaders anymore and on international level, we would be checked thrice on airports now. Without educated and sensible people, we cannot get rid of extremism.

    I had a discussion about this with my mother. She is educated but she falls under the same fallacy which is that we give unquestioned trust to anyone with a long beard and shaved moustache. Thats why places like these crop up and nuts like that molana prop up. By this logic any nut can put an islamic title in front of his name and become a self righteous jerk who feels it is his obligation to force people into behaving his way and somehow he is the emblem of islam and becomes our identity internationally. Nobody has given him this power but us. His power is lost the moment we stop giving him that trust and start questioning why we have such unquestioned beliefs. I was surprised to see that those parents from northern areas who sent their girls and children to be educated in such institutes had no idea what was happening down there and how they were kids were being used. How could you be so blind? Just because you thought your kids were going to an islamic school? Your beliefs are not wrong. Just question them once in a while.

    why: in one line, tightly coupled bonding of state and religion.

    when: when the bond will be broken.

    what: not much, there’s already a need of mass brain washing (since last few decades), and at international level, the image of us is in a state that can’t go any worse.

    >> Why such situations like Red Mosque surface?

    … To divert attention of general public from the political affairs of the country. It is not the first time the Musharaf regeime / intelligence agencies have directed such a drama …

    I hope all remember the killer of 100 kids in Lahore …. (newsitems later disappeared) at the start of Musharaf’s takeover.

    I hope people can check “Wag the Dog” an American movie on the same topic.

    >> What would be the consequences on individual level and international level?

    People with love for religion will feel demorilised & humiliated coz of Maulana Auntie.

    I was of the opinion since begining that no Mujahid organisation can buy M-16 rifles which costs approx. 54,000 Rs (or 900 US$) and gas masks which came as aid to Pakistan Military.

    Q) Who supplied it to Lal Brigade Jihadis ?

    >> When will we get rid of extremism in disguise of misguidance?

    Guess NEVER …. we have to live with it as everyone (all parties) enjoy it equally.

    Q) Why the terrorists given 5000 Rs / person instead of 5 years in jail ??

    I think;

    Q) Who supplied it to Lal Brigade Jihadis?

    Could be anyone including army/mushi.

    Q) Why the terrorists given 5000 Rs / person instead of 5 years in jail ??

    Because those were not PURE terrorists. Many of them even dint know the meaning of Jahad. Reward shows appreciation of some act and gov. appreciated their surrender.
