Courts are empty, boycott from today.

A bomb scare at Beaconhouse Defence. Correction; a possible explosion averted as the bomb was actually found IN the office block of the school.

A lot of people will blame it all on one government, or even worse, one man. Some would, in a bid to sound more believable, blame perhaps two or more governments, or men. None of that truly matters. What we are going to do about it is what matters. We do not know the problem even, so that is as far away from the solution as possible.

It is said that a burqa-clad person (possibly a woman) delivered a letter to the guard to give to the school principal. The letter said that the principal’s office is set to explode. They evacuated and the bomb squad actually diffused the bomb.

My source for the above is a friend whose sister is enrolled in the school. All we could say was ” “, i.e. nothing. Who is to blame? What’s the use of that; what do we do now? How do we come out of this mess that is all around us?

Pray & play hard friends, pray and play hard.

    There was a bomb? man! It’s shocking and terrifying. Shame!

    May Allah forgive us all. Bless all of us with right knowledge of deen o duniya and grant us enough wisdom to see the true colors.

    Its not that difficult, first thing first;

    Come out of denial and know the difference between the good, the bad and the evil. This might not be a popular examples but the fact is, it was much worse in Israel, but the people stood resolute against the Hamas Suicidals and eventually they had to give up their marauding methods to fight for a cause.

    Know your enemies and know your friends, dont do what the enemy wants to do, that is destabilize the govt / country and create chaos and mayhem, dont strenghten their hands. Even in the places like Iraq the locals have turned against them, they now know that it is a frightening evil brewing within us. Look at the people of Swat they knew better and got rid of those screwed up ideologs.

    Yes, its an evil which was fed with blood by our own, hence we are living in the age of consequences of our past actions, but its never too late to recognize a wrong and deal with it. Deal with it!

    Maybe it was a hoax THIS TIME, but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. Its not as if bombs haven’t exploded in Lahore recently, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the kids prank story is actually a coverup.
    My son studies at kids kampus, and these threats have enforced the school to put up very strict security – parents can not enter or take their children home without a school-id card, and have to queue up while the teachers call their kids outside one by one, which basically means it takes thrice as much time to take your kid home as before.
    @suh: It may be a lolzzzzzzzzz’ing matter to you as it probably doesn’t affect your personal life one bit, and you don’t have to wait in a queue to pick up your child, all the time thinking "why has it come to this", but if you think that because one bomb threat was just a threat, we don’t have anything to complain about and shouldn’t protest against our poor President, my friend, you are badly mistaken. We still have 2 schooldays till election, and it is a sad state when parents have to call sending their kids to school "risky".
