While Floods Ravage Pakistan, Pakistan President Goes Looking for World Leaders to Meet
[Quote – 93]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“It is August 2010. And it is also the month of Ramadan – 1431 – during which Muslims everywhere fast the entire day.

Pakistan, we are told, is having the worst floods of its 60-year history, with 20 million reported victims. And during this crisis the president of that country is said to have been on a fairly extended tour of Europe and UK to meet what are called World Leaders.

We may have a couple of things to say on that. First, nothing a politician ever does comes as a surprise to us, especially one from Pakistan.

Second, if all the president of Pakistan wanted to do was to fly over a large body of water like the Atlantic, why couldn’t he have gotten into a helicopter and flown over the flooded parts of his own country? If he wanted to, he could have asked his military to colour those waters green to make them resemble the Atlantic. Pretty much everything in Pakistan is run by the military we are told.” (Dr. Pasha)
