The online world as the march goes on…

Facebook and Twitter become very interesting and swift places at times like these. The nation is not resting and so are the websites. They are making money by the hits, which are by the millions! But that is the least of my concerns at the moment. What dazzles me are the thoughts and the counter thoughts. As if the media was not enough!

Media is a strange yet effective tool which effects the online world in a subtle, sneaky way. Once bought into with some dough, the media can change its perspective in a minute or two and can give people alternative views that may never exist. People who have online accounts- are educated, will propagate it to give voice to their snoozing fingers without realizing what they are writing.

The online world transformed from the force of the media, that pushed tons of people into the streets for the long march, giving the long march a wonderful reception in every city it passed, to bogging it down now that it has reached its ultimate destination and has the full potential of tearing down the Parliament. The media has suddenly put out its anchors into the streets asking general people constitutional questions. I DIRECTLY ask the media ‘how many people in your family know their constituitional rights and what was your age when you realized your constitutional rights to vote?” “How many women in your family are aware of their constitutional rights?” Kndly let us know without LYING!!!!

The point to these pointless questions is that, your questions are as pointless as the questions above! Kindly stop giving people secondary ideas- a man wearing robes and having a religious background is as sound as a man wearing Western outfit- atleast the religous man is EDUCATED in deen and duniya!

The revolution thy name is ……… long march!

While thousands of people stride towards the capital of Pakistan I sit in Karachi wondering more than ever if this is really the revolution we all were waiting for- the new world order- the end of the world- the Mayan calender ending and causing a demonic or angelic change in the demography and geography of Pakistan.

There are numerous views on the long march. The political view, the non-political view, view of the masses which undoubtedly holds strong and the view of the spectators. While all views take but one angle and side of the event and stick to it the spectators are pretty choosy and try to question all angles and even the most dumb and pathetic angles.

Trying hard to discredit Dr.Tahir ul Qadri, the spectators, believe they can spring up anecdotes of their own accord and stash it up, again having firm faith they have threatened the Doc’s mission. Knowing full well that the doc has not given his full agenda, and he happens to be a lawyer, the spectators should be careful in appropriating anecdotes and mission-failing prophecies to a learned man.

Changing startegy might come in handy to channels who wish to increase their viewership, instead of name-calling or verbally harassing or challenging people who are following the Doc who is out for a change. Many people didnot ‘understand’ English during the revolution of Pakistan, nontheless they fervently listened to Mr.Jinnah, BELIEVING that whatever he was saying was the truth and the right thing.
