Pictures of corpses of children attired in blood-soaked clothes are getting viral on the social media. People from all nooks and corners of the World are recording their protest on the brutal aerial attack of US and Afghan forces which has ruined the peace of about 80 families.
According to Al Jazeera, the target was a religious ceremony which was aimed to present awards and gifts to the children for completion of their course. Majority of the deceased were teenagers who were probably unaware of the international politics and the hypocritical face of West which claims to be the champion of human rights.
United Nations Assistant Mission in Afghanistan said that human rights team will investigate the incident. But we all know what kind of investigation it will be. America has been violating human rights in Afganistan since 2001 with a sense of impunity but no international organization can dare even to question her.
This is neither the first attack on civilians nor it will be last as the rule of “might is right” applies. More children will be slaughtered, more women will be widowed but there is no one to feel the pain of Afghan nation.
Tearful eyes of Afghan mother are dim as there is no hope in them. The international community is silent over this massacre but it is clear that the agenda of US was not only the fall of the Taliban rule, it was a venomous campaign to crush the dissents so that no one could stand up against the cruelty of USA.
Dual policy of United States is baffling. On one side, they seem eager for negotiations with Taliban but on the other side, they are targeting the religious seminaries and killing innocent children.
The Afghan government is also playing a shameful role by proving themselves the best bootlickers of uncle Sam. They are trying to maximize their rule by playing the role of “evil servant”.
Muslim countries should sit on a table and get united by throwing away the gauntlet of sectarianism. Myopic political interests should be ignored for the purpose of unity. There is a dire need to send a strong message to the US but it will remain a far cry dream unless the Muslim rulers wake up from the deep slumber. Till then we have to suffer the agony.
