Governor Punjab’s assassination: Terrorists within

Shameless or should I call the self-proclaimed-judges-of-other’s-deeds hopeless? I was amazed to see people celebrating other over the murder of governor of Punjab. Let’s review the reason for murder of the governor in the first place; HE WAS SHOT BECAUSE OF HIS CALLING THE BLASHEMY LAWS AS THE ‘KALA KANOON’. Although I completely disagree with the victim’s approach towards the blasphemy laws but I condemn the execution of the assassination; if every walking person has the right to pass and carryout the judgment I wonder why do we have the courts, judges or even laws to begin with?

The irony of the situation is that you are trying to be a supporter of a religion by doing exactly what’s disliked in the very religion. Congratulating on someone’s death? Seriously? I would quote an event as described in Sahih Al-Bukhari (Volume 2, Hadith 399): “A funeral procession once passed in front of the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) and he stood up out of respect. When he was told the person in the coffin was Jewish and not Muslim, he said: ‘Was it not a living (soul)?’”

The Holy Quran says in Chapter 41, Verse 34 and 35: "Repel (evil) with what is better. Then will he, between whom and thee was hatred, become as it were thy friend and intimate. And no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint". I am sure the terrorists also congratulate each other after killings and bombarding people and places what they belief are wrong. Human life is valuable and we do not have the right to be the judge. In fact we stand at the same place as any other in front of God- at least before evaluation. For what’s done is done but should not we be more concerned for our actions and doings, towards the country as per the situation, than celebrate from someone elses?
