How dare they?

What is the meaning of this?

My entire body is trembling with rage. How dare they? Why should anyone even go to play cricket in this country when they cant even offer protection to visitors who have gone there in good faith.

When they insist on nurturing the very monster that is cannibalising them.

Wake up. And smell the gun fire.

  2. Dhiren says:

    Thank God no one is seriously injured….

    this sends shivers to the spine…. u suddenly thank god our cricketers didnt go there !….

    horrific and barbaric…

    pakistan is going to become increasingly aloof from the world…. this is future afghanistan…. it scares me that we share such a long border with them…

    Kahan paaltey (nurture kartey) hain in @$$*!! ko, Kiran… they are horrible parasites who feed on our blood and turn on us and ours. Take it from me, a significant population in my part of the world are as flabbergasted as teh rest of you. Im sick to the core of my stomach, to do this to someone who came as our guest.


  4. Aathira says:

    I really think they need to start doing something before everything is going to become a mess there.

    Now they have everything on their soil, they have the people who did it within their jurisdiction, so I really hope they decide to show the world they are not going purely downhill!


  5. Nandita says:

    …and to think Imran Khan made a statement some months ago that ‘Terrorists will NEVER target cricketers’ makes me wonder if they always take his permission before setting off on one of their dastardly jehadi acts


  6. Gigi says:

    Pakistan is proving to be a failed state. 😦
    I pity the common citizens and feel bad for the policemen who were killed.


  7. Abha says:

    its indeed horrid to say the least! and they scoffed at us when we said we wont play there for security reasons!

    whats with that country anywayz?!

    and for how long can we stay safe either?


  8. Did you know that a Pakistani official actually said “the assault came in reaction to the Mumbai attacks, and was a “declaration of open war on Pakistan by India””

    Jeez, what a moron!


  9. Veena says:

    I am sure Pakistanis are condemning this attack just as we condemned the Mumbai attacks. Their policemen laid down their lives, just as hours. Terrorists do not understand nationality, morality, life anything. The entire world is unsafe and scary today because of these monsters.


  10. Roop Rai says:

    @just another mommy: I was waiting for one such illogical comment out of Pakistan when I first heard of this tragic news.


  11. Ash says:


    I thank you for your comment. As someone from that “failed state” aka the “next Afghanistan” as someone here said, we are just as shocked and flabbergasted as the next person. This just makes no sense…no sense whatsoever.


  12. aneela z says:

    JAM and RR: Nahee yara you didnt get what our Minister was saying…the intention was local but the “action” had been ‘outsourced’ to an Indian BPO…, damn all those low hourly rates.


  13. Kiran Manral says:

    @Everyone: My bloggy pals from Pakistan, hugs. Terrorism knows no boundaries. I know that no rightminded individual would condone this. And I hurt because we are all so very very vulnerable…for whom is this jihad being waged for, when no one is on their side, I wonder.


  14. All I can say is just when you think you can’t puke any more, you puke some more.
    P.S. Trust me, I find it VERY relevant here!
