What happened in Astor? On the road leading to Gilgit, three buses were waylaid at a place near Babusar pass by the heavily armed fanatic Muslims. The passengers were disembarked, and lined up. Those discovered to be Shias were gunned down. The spine chilling tragedy is so ghastly as to make one speechless. It’s difficult to describe the barbaric enormity of this carnage that spatters blood on the already bloody face of Pakistan.
The citizens come out of the houses with a mind torn by the phobias of lurking suicide bombers to strike him in a nook, on a bus stand and in a shopping center.
If the prayers can matter, let there be peace in Iraq and in Afghanistan or at least Shia procession must have been spared by their divinities from the repeated nightmares. Then what’s the way-out: honestly I don’t know. I am dizzy and losing my sanity.
