There is no justification - how can one justify what happened with TLP taking over the capital a few months ago ? But they did not storm it and threaten parliamentarians as happened here.Sad to see that Pakistan continues to live a few centuries behind the rest of the civilized world despite being a nuclear power. It need not be this way. Justifying present failures by pointing out similarities from times gone by is probably counter-productive, in that it prevents looking and aspiring towards better things, at least in my view.
Would you like to drive to interior Arkansas or North Dakota and give the Azaan?
I know what happened to a few idiotic Tableeghis that tried that. So yes, Pakistan is centuries behind but lets not kid ourselves that issues don’t exist throughout the world and few have reached the ideals we all hope for.
There is no comparison, but as I said before -unabashed criticism without understanding the ground realities which change within a few blocks in many cities and countries around the world does disservice to the message regarding improving those conditions.
If one is to pitch utopia, then utopia needs to have a path.
