Most of the WKKs deserve sympathy and understanding more than ridicule, I think. Partition was a traumatic event of unimaginable horror. Such trauma has a way of reducing its victims to an emotionally infantile state. They desperately want some kind of emotional support to cling to, something, even a false-something, to feel reassured that the world is not really so horribly and cruel as to have harmed them so terribly. They keep inventing alternate realities in which Pakjabis are not the coldhearted inhuman rakshasas that they truly have shown themselves to have been.
Very insightful post. Sets me thinking.
I was a little surprised about the "over the top" description of Pakistan women driving cars, having kitty parties and dressing better. Every Paki who has visited India recently has expressed surprise at women driving cars or on scooters. Why would they be surprised if it was commonplace in Shitland? The woman "Rohinee"
has a problem that goes beyond the perfectly accurate assessment you have made. It is one thing to oppose demonization of Pakis, but to turn the facts around by bluffing means a troubled (sick?) mind. The comment about women being better dressed is not just an unfair painting of all Indian women as badly dressed - but I suspect this Rohinee woman is deliberately insulting some Indian women she knows via this article. There is no need to simply paint all Pakistani women as well dressed and all Indian women as being less so. Especially if the author lives in India
This article will be read by the Delhi social crowd that this woman comes from. Those whom she is trying to insult will feel insulted and they will likely hit back in ways that we will not know - need to follow this woman on Twitter, perhaps, to see what is being said. Not sure that this lady has a great journalistic future ahead - need to wait and see,
Aside from that I had an epiphany yesterday. I was lazily scanning channels, impatiently waiting for ads to end on my favourite program "Pawn Stars"
and I glanced at Headlines Today that had the line "Hafiz Saeed says Lakhvi is innocent. Why does Pakistan do this?"
My initial reaction was one of tired dismissal. I was telling myself "Oh I know so much about Pakistan - I could answer that question if only they asked intelligent ol' me
" But then I realized that the adverse publicity that shitistan gets across most channels - including the airing of views by Paki mofo jernails is actually shaping opinions in India far more than the Amonkey Asha can reverse. I am not surprised that Pakistanis blame Indian media for being anti Pakistan. That makes me glad. Indians have to learn about shitland somehow or the other and as long as they behave like the assholes they are no amount of spraying cologne on a turd will change things.
