Time for change


Get yourself raped

Does anybody know how to say "Go fuck yourself" in Urdu, the official language of Pakistan? It should be moved to the forefront of common knowledge, I think, simply because of the Pakistan Prime Minister's most recent remarks concerning the gang-rape of a woman in 2002.

I wrote a piece on this very topic in June, in fact. I had hoped that the Canadian coverage of such a heinous crime across the globe would send messages rippling to the proper "authorities" [cough, cough] in Pakistan.

I was, of course, wrong.

The most recent article can be found here.

Apparently he thinks the whole thing was a sham to gain quicker passage to Canada. Apparently, also, we here away from the Land That Reason Forgot don't understand the situation in a strange and magical place like Pakistan.
"You must understand the environment in Pakistan. This has become a moneymaking concern. A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself raped."

Seriously!? "Getting yourself raped" is the ideological kin to saying "Hey, you want sympathy for crimes committed against your people? Go through a holocaust." Amnesty International is asking for a public apology but obviously that won't cut it. Public apologies do nothing to remove private sentiment.

Hang the bastard. No, better yet, order him to be gang-raped. He deserves nothing less.
