50 Afghan soldiers killed, 100 injured in retaliatory firing to Chaman cross-border attack: IG FChttps://www.dawn.com/news/1331637/50-afghan-soldiers-killed-100-injured-in-retaliatory-firing-to-chaman-cross-border-attack-ig-fc
Inspector General (IG) Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan Maj Gen Nadeem Anjum on Sunday claimed that 50 Afghan security personnel were killed and another 100 injured as Pakistani forces retaliated to unprovoked firing by Afghan border forces on security personnel in Balochistan's Chaman area last week.He added, however, that "we are not happy over their losses since they are our Muslim brothers".
Here lies a fundamental chance to understand the mentality of a nation that has slowly written out its culture and replaced it with religion.
Religion from here on becomes the fundamental looking glass of measuring your near and far surroundings.
You express yourself using religion
You understand or measure others using religion
You judge yourself and your actions using your limited knowledge of religion and because you mentioned god, therefore you must be RIGHT.
Here are few more of my takes on the implications of the General's sentence.... We are not happy over their losses since they are our muslim brothers.
i.e if they were Christians or Hindus or Buddhists or Sikhs (or Shias ??) then it would be fine and we would not be so so sorry. We are not happy over their losses since they are our muslim brothers.
i.e we don't care about a human being getting their gut torn out by bullets but because they are muslims we are sad. We are not happy over their losses since they are our muslim brothers.
i.e we have no respect for a nation called Afghanistan but since they incidentally
happen to be Muslim too, we now are sorry for their losses.
I know some of you might consider to be non-military nature but it is. Psychology is a part of military warfare and we must understand this enemy and their psyche.
