They call for strikes. They call for shutdowns. They claim to be men doing God’s good work. They would come after your life alleging blasphemy. They burn things that come across their path. They want an ambassador to be expelled. They hate a sect whose holy city happens to be on the banks of a river. But they never march towards it. They never staged any protests around it. Their power shows happen only in Islamabad. Why? Is it because God lives in Islamabad? Or is it because the machinery that can make churn their politics into profit exists in Islamabad? Hell too has its heroes.
