ISLAMABAD: After seeing the Sialkot lynchings, I have come to the conclusion that we are animals, not humans. Our souls are dead and we have no value for a person’s life. We are Pakistan, a barbaric land of 160 million-plus people who consider themselves to be the dearest land of the Lord. This is the land of people who do not value humanity.

When will we then open our eyes? When will we stop?

Pakistani | 10 years ago | Reply I share your sense of guilt, but even animals don't deserve to be given a bad name by being compared to us. Animals are far more innocent than us.
