Greetings and condolences

Belated Eid greetings to all. Though the holidays were over on Wednesday, I had been busy with moving house (will finally have broadband at the new home soon) and just catching up on things after so many days off. Will hopefully be able to write more soon.

Secondly, I’d like to offer my condolences regarding another tragedy that struck last night in the form of two bomb blasts in Karachi. Over a hundred people perished and lots more were injured when the bombs went off during a procession led by former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto who recently returned from exile.

We can start pointing fingers at the authorities for not taking enough security measures. Or we can also blame Ms Bhutto for not taking the threats seriously, but the sad fact is that all this is still happening in the same country that I live in. For once I’d like to see the perpetrators caught and something permanent done to reduce these incidents over the long term.
