Good visuals excite me.
The beauty of nature mesmerizes me.
Memories of Pakistan nostalgia-te me.
Position of women worries me.
Chauvinists exasperate me.
Preachers of false dogmas enrage me.
Terrorism sickens me.
Extremists frustrate me.
Moral policing infuriates me.
The lost community baffles me.
Racism saddens me.
Political bastards need to get a life!

This Month's Terrorist Activities

A total of 4 bomb attacks.

Deaths: 43+
Injured: 117+

This month passed relatively low key in comparison, but the attack moves further south to the city of Lahore. Lahore was previously known as the safe city. Of the 4 major cities in the country, Lahore was the only one safe from such attacks. Quetta and Peshawar for their geographical regions, their tribal system, proximity to the Talibans and Al-Quaida; Karachi for MQM, it's feudal system and political animosity. Lahore had been too south for the talibans, and too up north for the MQM violence to touch it. But over the years, especially since 2006-2007, Lahore has come in it's claws too, and has been victim to severeal such heinous crimes.

1. 5th, Peshawar, N.W.F.P. A car bomb detonated outside a Shia mosque in a central bazaar; 29 dead; 100 injured.

2. 24th, Lahore, Punjab. A bomb explosion on a main road; 1 dead; 14 injured.
