Can’t be Real Pakistanis

March 3, 2009

Many, many guests on Pakistan’s GeoTV echoed this sentiment about the terrorists after the brutal, bloody attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team.

They claimed that these terrorists couldn’t possibly have been Real Pakistanis because no Real Pakistani would ever attack a cricketer. Some of them added that it was even more unlikely during such a critical series, in which the Sri Lankan players had shown tremendous courage in coming to Pakistan at all.

Looks like being a Pakistani is a matter of opinion now. Just like being a Muslim has been for some time. It doesn’t matter that you identify yourself as a Muslim and a Mujahid for Allah carrying out a Jihad as ordered by the Quran. If you are a terrorist, many defenders of Islam would claim that you can’t possibly be a Real Muslim.

Same with Pakistan now. It wouldn’t matter if you have a Pakistani passport, were born and raised in Pakistan, and are, in fact, participating in a war to take over the entire country. If you attack a cricketer, you aren’t a Real Pakistani.

But then, may be it is okay. Pakistan is no longer a Real Country anyway.

    Of course there were no Pakistanis, the truth, which western media is covering up could not be more different, let’s fact it this and the previous attacks are nothing but a conspiracy by Hindu Zionists to defame land of pure.

    PS. By the way this is a common line of fallacy called no true Scotsman

    @Gaurav: Thanks for reminding me about that fallacy. I knew I was forgetting something.

    I heard that line and connected it to the “Real Christians dont do any harm” line. I guess I have been amerikanized :)

    @dictator1: Indeed. I hadn’t ever heard this American expression.
