Threat­ened as­set ....

RAMSHA KHAN

Leg­ends die hard! They sur­vive as truth rarely does. Am­jad Sabri was in­deed a leg­end and led an ex­em­plary life through­out his per­sonal, so­cial and spir­i­tual ca­reer. He be­came the vic­tim of the great game, which is be­ing played in Karachi since last three decades. We mourn in­di­vid­u­ally and col­lec­tively, as can be seen on his fu­neral but is this enough?

Are we wait­ing for the next tragedy and how long we the Karachi­ites would lose such pre­cious souls in this bru­tal man­ner? The point is we are not wak­ing up, we are con­tended on car­ry­ing dead bod­ies but do not dare to raise voice against this sys­tem, against this vi­o­lence and blood­bath which is not end­ing.

Dur­ing the last few decades, we have lost sev­eral renowned per­son­al­i­ties who with­out any rea­son be­came the vic­tim of such ag­o­nal deaths and most im­por­tantly th­ese ‘na­maloom killers’ are known to ev­ery lay­man, but the au­thor­i­ties are blind enough to show any cred­i­bil­ity or re­spon­si­bil­ity.

It is clearly ev­i­dent that the killers are tar­get­ing the ed­u­cated and noble minds of our so­ci­ety, which is a threat to our na­tional as­set of aca­demi­cians, phi­lan­thropists, artists, doc­tors etc. May Al­lah bless Am­jad sabri high­est ranks in Jan­nah and his fam­ily with Sabr-e- Jamil (amen)
