Attack On Churches, Another Black Day - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

It could have been a great day,
Pakistan qualified for the quarter finals,
Of ICC World Cup of cricket,
But attacks on churches at Lahore,
In which many precious lives were lost,
Thanks God the terrorists could not get in,
I don’t know what’s the message the terrorists want to send?
About Pakistan and about Islam!
Terror has added another black day in the history of nation,
And eclipsed the moon of a joyful victory!

The angry mob during protests,
Burnt alive two captured suspects,
What a blunder it was!
The suspects during investigations,
Would have revealed the names,
Of the master minds of this satanic attack!

As usual it is said it has been done by enemies,
I agree it has been done by enemies of Pakistan,
But these enemies are within us,
You know who is protecting and patronizing them!

    It is such a relief that there are people like you to feel embittered by the brutal attack on places of worship! There are many who feel bad, but only few have the guts to voice it out! Terrorism is growing more and more as an affront to humanity! How the sheen of victory was stained by blood! Great write Akhtarji! 10 (Report) Reply

    Aaaaaah... I can only say in my early words as HUMANITY IS AT STAKE..

    Man is killing man only and sometimes of same religion..
    Devils have entered the human heart and mind......
