Minority’s (and Dawn’s) Typical Hypocrisy: An Excellent Example

I saw the following headline — in daily Dawn of all the places — and was pleasantly surprised:

Not all deaths are mourned the same

I was surprised thinking it was about not mourning civilian deaths by drone attacks and was glad someone in the mainstream media had published something on it and that too Dawn (who usually call for MORE drone strikes and ask for bringing IDF-style check posts to Pakistan).

Boy, was I wrong! The crocodile tears Dawn and one Murtaza Haider (“Ph.D. is the Associate Dean of research and graduate programs at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University in Toronto”) are shedding are for the Hazara shia community in Balochistan 29 of whom died in back September.

Now how do they jump from NATO strike victims all the way to a sectarian thing far, far away is amazing. That at the same time they forget thousands of other victims of drone strikes — something that would be an automatic link — is beyond my comprehension. Another NATURAL link would be thousands of Balochis killed by security forces (read Pakistan Army), no matter what sect they belong to, reeks of hypocrisy of the extreme kind. One can only not forget about those intentionally and if one is following an agenda. This is not an oversight and is proven by the fact that they would not print any comment that mentions those killings (though they find every ridiculous comment agreeing with their bullshit story “Oh, poor Hazars…oh the humanity! Poor poor shias….”).

Hypocrisy Squared:

Here is an example. I tried to be as p.c. as I could be and thought about giving posting a comment a try. I wrote:

I am surprised no mention is made of the other victims of countless NATO strikes: the victims of drones. That would have been more RELEVANT. And using this incident to talk about sectarian/minority thing is dishonest at the very least and stinks of the author having an agenda.

Another interesting thing is that among all the killings going on in Balochistan, the author can only see those from the Haraza Shia community. He knows 435 Hazarans have been killed. Care to tell us how many thousands non-Hazarans were killed in the same period in Balochistan?

I guess “Not all deaths are same” after all 😉

After sitting in moderation for a while, the comment was disappeared like a Baloch in Dera Bugti 😉

Shame on you Murtaza Haider and Shame on you Dawn!!!

    Being a tribal that article made me throw up. Balochis, Hazras, Shias, Ahmedis are more victims than Tribals , Kashmiris, Aghan Pahtuns, for our PPP liberals…

      Well, get ready to be “non-victimized” by PML-N liberals for another 5 years…and watch how soon Nawaz forgets his pledge to get out of the ‘war of terror’…. (Will PTI rule in PKP make a difference in that regard? ZILCH!)
