- Rape,incest,sexual abuse.These are taboo subjects, if it is happening then just ignore and avoid. Never help a victim. In fact ,shun and ostracize the victim. Take doppatta on heads and start reciting the holy book and nothing will happen to us. The victim and her family if it is poor are especially not likely to be believed. God is only with the holy, virtous, not with poor, depending on your alms and help. I especially despice these nowadays typical upper middle class ladies of defence, who have started the religious teachings as a fashion, yes I say a fashion .Their mentality of Ostrichism ,deriding the disadvantaged,passing judgements without knowledge and magnanimoty,will never change. Their half baked ideas about religion,badly read opinions, and un- knowledgable fatwas reek of ignorance and arrogance,which The Islamic God so hates.Their male counterparts are a confusing, despicsable mix of pretentious religiosity,virtuosoty,confused modernism, yet rightist behavior. Usually these guys will do adultry,incest, rape at the first instance.
- Then there is the nouvau rich or in pakistan fuedal ,landed bastards. They are ace actors in rape, incest ,sexual abuse and physical violence. for the religion, education, morality, nothing seems to work. They are truly Maader Pidaar Aazad or in other words bastards of the worst kind. They roam about freely on roads with blackened windows of their Prados,Corrollas,their servants and guards pimping for them ,supplying girls, kidnapping people for ransom, raping and looting freely,unscared of the police or administration. These people usually become more active when elected governments come into power, thinking that nobody will catch them as they are in power. Usually they do not understand that the martial forces are around the corner when things get bad.And God is watching.
- Then there are ordinary folks who do not know where they stand , they think that the issues which evolve public debate ,legislation, solving are not to be discussed and if any NGO is working in this field, they are unIslamic. As if the prophet( peace be upon him) did not stand for the rights of the oppressed, the poor, the underprivileged,the needy, the mazloom(oppressed) and especially women. They think that by compromising we can pass this life in peace. Oh how ignorant and stupid they are.When the boat sinks everyone sinks!

The Ostrich Attitude
The Pakistani society is amazing in its variety of prejudices,dogmas,stigmas,and most of all ostrich like behaviour.Here we take pride in ignoring the weakness, tyrranies,injustices and always try our best to brush important issues which make or break a society under the carpet. By burying our heads under the sand, we think no one will see us.Here are some issues we especially love to hide ;
