Us Laughing Stocks

"In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful"

Asalamo Alykum,

I just saw a video report of the Indian parliament in the middle of a fight; mics and chairs being thrown at each others heads and a perfect bedlam. Such a report is not new and not particular to the Indian parliament. Such videos are often issued about the third-world countries, silently depicting the backwardness and barbarism of its people.

I wish to make just one comment here. Killing people with surgical strikes, carpet bombing, chemical warfare and last but not the least, moving tanks against unarmed children with just stones in their small fists is many more times backward and barbaric. It is not just backward and barbaric, it is outright cowardly!

The super powers have no right to make the domestically armed fights of the third-world countries a laughing stock while they do the same and much more, only with much more sophisticated technology and at such a wide scope that no camera-lens has the capacity to film its horizon.

Wsalam.
