A Taliban attack on an army public school in Peshawar left 84 children and 20 others dead. The death toll continues to rise. The attack is allegedly in retaliation to the Pakistan army attack in North Waziristan.
In my opinion such incidents are a direct and inevitable consequence of creating a theological state in a sub continent of such diversity. We shall witness more such incidents in the future, often of a greater intensity and bloodshed.
At the time of Independence, despite the sane voices of Maulana Azad and Badshah Khah, a large number of Muslims in India became berserk, and insisted on creating Pakistan. Some even threatened to kill Maulana Azad. Like the children following the Pied Piper of Hamelin, they blindly accepted the two nation theory propagated by that rascal Jinnah, and now their children( or rather grandchildren ) are paying for their ancestors' sins, both in India as well as in that fake and artificial entity ( I refuse to call it a country ) called Pakistan.
As the Bible says : " They have sown the wind, and now they will reap the whirlwind " ( Hosea 8:7 )
