M's Story and our Hypocrisy

The story goes like this:

She lived in Swat. 

She wanted to educate people. 

She was opposed for doing so by her critics. 

Critics then turned attackers. Situation got worse and she was attacked. 

She survived. 

In many other attacks, her fellow citizens died. 

Some people even went further and blamed her for those deaths.

And all other things going wrong in their state (from divorces to corruption).

To save her life, she migrated to Birmingham. 

The world accepted her, praised her. 

Her own people called her a drama. 

Her name was Malala. This is her story.

Now please use the following key,read again and rate your hypocrisy:
(From 0 'I take sides based on issues/principles'  ---------  to  --------- 10 'I takes sides based on who is involved'):

She/Her with  He/Him/His
Swat with Mecca
Birmingham with Medina
Malala with Muhammad

A conversation with Ansar Abbasi

A conversation with people like Ansar Abbasi (AA) after the Safoora Goth Massacre:

Me: Some Islamic scriptures support violence and murder.

AA: Don't blame Islam. If Muslims cannot understand the scriptures, with the right context then don't accuse Islam.

Me: Ok then, Muslims are to be blamed. 

AA: Not all Muslims. Do NOT stereotype! 

Me: Ok some Muslims. 

AA: But those are NOT True Muslims!

Me: Ok then let's make laws so they cannot do what they are doing. So they cannot preach hate. So they cannot pass judgments on people's faith. Let's catch, trial and jail them.

AA: Jail them??!?? All they are asking for is Shariah Law. Where is your SECULAR FREEDOM OF SPEECH NOW!??!??

*Rangeela does Sajda. Accepts Islam*
