Where are we headed?

ACCORDING to a Human Rights Commission of Pakistan report, over 1,600 people committed suicide in the first 10 months of last year. Then last month 50 children were found buried followed by another shocking news of 25 more buried bodies being found. Finally, on Oct 30, the news of what happened in the Paposhnagar graveyard (Karachi) spread like wildfire, shocking people no end.

All this indicates the need for us to think seriously as to where exactly we are headed. All these events are not happening on some other planet but on our planet in our own society.

Perhaps, the acts of terrorism and the people involved in suicide bombings also indicate the inability of society to act as a whole on its own.
