Pray for Pakistan; Pray for the World

إِنَّا للهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ

It’s shocking to realise that suicide bomb attacks are becoming something of a recurrence across the world in our current society.

Yesterday, we learnt of an explosion in Lahore which left over 70 men, women and children dead in a park. My heart breaks for the innocent victims who paid the price for being in what we perceive to be a safe place at the wrong time. The Taliban have since claimed responsibility for the attack, but it begs the question; for what purpose? What message are they attempting to convey by killing families on a holiday weekend?

This deplorable act was clearly meticulously calculated with the intention to cause maximum damage. Nothing screams inhumanity like killing 30 children on a public holiday. It also begs the question: to what incomprehensible extent have these terrorists subverted and distorted Islam for their own gain, in order to find this act of atrocity justifiable?

Pakistan is in my prayers tonight. As is the rest of the world.

The only way we can fight terror is with unity.

King and Queens

We’ll burn this earth to the ground
And rebuild a world for ourselves.
You and I,
King and queen
Of a world so full of callous innocence
We will know no hurt at all.
Hearts will remain whole,
Never to be broken or shattered.
Our grip on humanity will never weaken.
This is my dream.
To have you and to hold you until death do us part,
In a world of beatific freedom
And happiness.
The dream of reality.
