Ranger Shoots Unarmed Boy

Click here to read the full story.

Video of this incident is repeatedly being aired on various news channels. Warning: it is extremely graphic. Four people reportedy had a heart attack after watching it. I would post the link just to prove how horrific it was, but links have been blocked here in the UAE.

I have absolutely no words. How can anyone be so heartless? It's not just a life one takes, it's taking away everything from that person. His past, his future, his memories. No one has that right! Only Allah has that right! Even if it was a suspect or a robber, he was unarmed! He was begging for mercy, to not be killed. And he was shot dead. How anyone's conscience allows murder is beyond me. Missing five daily prayers is a major sin. But this? This is not even that. This is murder.

To the rangers who killed and who just stood there and watched:
I hope you're feeling better now, after releasing your frustration and lack of self-control on a young boy. I hope Allah has mercy on your soul, because if I were the judge, God knows I would never find it in me to forgive you. I hope you're satisfied with yourself for taking away someone's son, someone's brother, someone's husband. I hope nothing like this ever strikes you because your weak character would not be able to handle it. Fear Allah. Fear Him. You're not doing your job if you're shooting suspects. You've taken someone's life and I hope you're prepared to account for your sins on the Day of Judgement when you stand before your Lord who commanded you to be merciful, to be kind, to be just, to be forgiving. You ought to know that you've failed your job of protecting your countrymen. That you don't deserve this position. You're mentally unfit for that.

May God have mercy on you. May He protect you from the wrath that thousands of Pakistans all over the world would incur over you if they had that power.

As for the Government, I won't even bother commenting about them. Every single one of those corrupted 'leaders' of our nation find that it suffices to make appropriate remarks and condolences about a civilians death, call for immediate action and be done with. So forget it. I have no hope in you, no inkling of it whatsoever. For all the lawlessness in this country, I hope you have to account for it on the Day of Judgement. Because whoever sets out to do good, gets killed in the process. So really, I hope you're prepared for your grave.

To the boy who died: Brother, I wish we were powerful enough to do something. I wish we had the courage. I wish our nation as a whole was strong enough to bring about a change. We're being tested with troubles, I guess. That's all I can say. I hope you achieve martyrdom for dying as an innocent. And if you were guilty, may Allah swt forgive you and give your family the Sabr to bear through this pain. May your soul rest in peace, may your sins be forgiven in exchange for your pain and may you be prevented from Adhab-e-Qabr.
