Day 10,207 – Monday – 03 Bhadra 1930 – 22 Shaban 1429 – 25 August 2008
Today, a great light has been lost forever. Ahmed Faraz. A great poet of Urdu. A great man.
Urdu, our society, our culture, our civilization and our people have lost a great presence. The loss can not be described in words.
The ever resounding noise in the background, Keht ur Rijaal, intensifies.
apnay maghmoom kivaron ko muqaffal kar lo
ab yahan koi naheen, koi naheen, aaye ga
But most of all, it was our love for him that will be lost, the love based on his contribution,
aur faraz chahiyen kitnee muhabbatain tujhe
maaon nay teray naam par bachon kay naam rakh diyay
We have lost a great man today, it is very unfortunate that in our day and age no others take the place of the ones lost.
We hope, we hope to see another Faraz, another Faiz, another great poet. We hope.

the 6th of september was the day in 1965 that india and pakistan went to war. india crossed over the international border between pakistan and india at about 5 am on the night of 6th september and invaded pakistan. pakistan resisted the attack. well the war dragged on for some time. both sides declared a victory and got extrememly excited after the war was over. they still talk about how they whooped each other asses.
well to india. fuck you. you didnt get anything. you didnt get kashmir. you didnt get any of your objectives. how the hell can you call that a victory. if you dont get your fucking objectives you cant say you have won.
well to pakistan. fuck you. you didnt capture any indian territory of importance. you didnt get kashmir. you didnt manage to stop india. if you cant fucking get your objectives you cant say you have won.
to india and pakistan. FUCK YOU! you fucking morons. the people in your countries were in abject poverty during that time. things were worst then than they are now. HOW DARE YOU GO TO WAR !!! nations where people dont get their rights. where people have to sleep hungry and drink unclean water. where the basic necessities of life as defined at that time werent available. HOW DARE YOU GO TO WAR !!! SICK SICK SICK AND PERVERTED !!! damned idiotic politicians and military men. DAMN YOU !!!
the only thing that we hear about is how many planes were downed. who destroyed whos how many ships. etc etc etc. well noone ever talks about how many people died. indian and pakistani ? dont we fucking count. is this only a game for the fucked up hindu and muslim military personnel to butcher each other and us in the process ? is this how it happens.
why dont we count ? the citizens and the civilians. we do not want war. we want peace. we want to lead normal lives where there isnt a power cut or load shedding for abotu two hours a day. i want the roads to be built which are currently HORRIBLE in karachi. that is what i want. i dont want pakistan or india to fight wars and kill me. i want them to give me a life which i can lead as a human not an animal like we 1.3 billion humans do right now.
to india and pakistan and their desire to kill and maim us only so that they can hide their own political inadequecies. FUCK YOU ! give me clean water. give me continuous electricity. give me a job. give me a working civic system. give me a proper education. give me a clean environment. if you cant do that … which you havent been able to till now. FUCK YOU !
FUCK Government of Republic of India and Government of Islamic Republic of Pakistan
LONG LIVE PAKISTAN AND INDIA AND THEIR PEOPLE
it is about time the guns went down. and the elements of peace security and prosperity took over.
Long live the people of India Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Pakistan Paindabad … Jai Hind
South Asia Zindabad.

when i started this blog i wanted to do one thing. share my thoughts emotions feelings and actions with others. without any let or hindrance. completely free as what i am. telling them when i feel down. telling them when i feel elated. telling them everything uncensored. telling them i was a gay guy and that is why i think differently.
well today i noticed one thing. when i started this blog. i didnt think about activism as such. but now i am thinking about it. actually i am thinking a lot about my position in society. my right. my duties. that is why i am adding some links to gay sites and resources and portals pertaining to pakistanis and muslims who are gay. just to show you what is going on with me.
i am a man.
i am a muslim.
i am a pakistani.
i am gay.
i am proud of being gay.
anyone who have a problem with that can lead his own life the way they want and not meddle in my affairs. i am beginning to ask for my rights. but of course with a pseudonym. pakistan is not ready yet. i am not either.
i am proud of being a muslim.
i am proud of being a pakistani.
i am proud of being gay.
anyone who has religious moral ethical social or cultural scruples should know that i also have my thoughts. i also have my prejudices. but i never force mine on others. others should do the same. live and let live. the only way to a healthy society where majority opinions are not crammed down the throats of minorities.
this it my declaration of independence.
i shall never be ashamed of being gay.
i shall hold my head high and not be ashamed of the truth.
i shall accept being a muslim and being gay.
i am gay !
I Am Gay !
I AM GAY !
