oh yes … another fire engine. yarrrrr. this is not good. i feel the pain of my people. those who are closeted into their houses right now out of fear. those who are running away from the roads to be safe. those who are trying to keep the peace by using their batons. those who are burning the cars and tyres out of rage. i feel pain for all of this. this slow self inflicitng of wounds upon our nations body and soul. this slow death and destruction. i can only wish and pray for this to end. oh damn. another fire engine.

i cannot explain this in a single word in english … mobs throwing stones indescriminately as all cars passing by … burning cars, buses and trucks … breaking up petrol stations … shopekeepers closing their shops out of fear of arson … people trying to avoid the troubled areas … but there is a single word in urdu that will make the exacly situation exactly known to the listener “hangaamay”.

may allah keep us in his protection.
