Being one of those immigrants, I have interacted with them and observed behaviour patterns over the years. And I’ve found they tend to live in denial. Most Pakistanis love conspiracy theories, so they believe it must be a media conspiracy that their fellow countrymen are in the news.
Let’s take a quick look at current events and the denial that goes with it. (…)
Many confused Pakistanis complain that they live under a kind of McCarthyism in Canada. Let me remind them that if they had actually been living through a McCarthy era today, they would not get up every morning and trot off to their 9-to-5 jobs or live and move around freely as we do today.
Many of them are complicit by their silence. They have been so busy pointing fingers at others that now when all fingers are pointing to Pakistan, they are lost. We don’t have to support rogue nations, even if those nations are our native lands.
Let me remind my fellow countrymen and co-religionists that our faith does not ask us for allegiance to corrupt regimes but encourages us to show loyalty to the lands in which we live and earn our living and where our children have a future.
