ohh,,, so all is hunky dory and just one teeny weeny bittsy little “concern” that could be cramped in the last two lines… haun ?
But then again hay,,..whats a little number of people dying for the greater “fun” of Lahoris !!!?
We all know how disciplined our people are….and we also know that some WILL definitly die,as they do every year,.,, as a result of reckless “fun” .
So in light of such well known “fact” dont you Dear Zia, think that even if the life of only ONE signle person can be saved if we dont fly our fun kites….Dont you think its worth it ??
I would say unless and untill it can be absolutely ensured by a fool-proof system that NO citizen will get his throat slit by somebody’s fun… basant should be absolutely banned. Not on religious grounds, I dont think it has anything to do with religion,,, But on simple logic that life of even one person is worth saving….. yes even if that means us not flying kites..and dancing on our rooftops..
[...] It appears that Basant yet again is attracting a huge interest among Lahoris and Pakistanis. It is still not clear whether the government will allow it or now. However, people want to celebrate it – on February 28. Let’s hope that the avid fans of kite-flying and those who want to celebrate the spring weather are not disappointed. Lahore Nama will keep all the readers updated on Basant news and views. [...]
