As a humanist, I extend my Eid greetings to Muslims and all other people with any religious or non-religious orientation. Let’s hope all people of goodwill will strive to uphold human values and struggle against anti-human forces of religious extremists and fanatics who kill fellow human beings in the name of their brand of religion or sect in Pakistan and Iraq. They also terrorise other religious minorities.
We are human beings first and last. Religions and religious consciousness can also be used to advance human values and human happiness. Luckily some religious people work for social welfare of the people and we can be proud of their work. But a tiny minority of misguided and brainwashed goons is perpetrating random killings.
However, it is unrealistic to think that any government can cope with these rogues if the people are not motivated to cope with them. Again, it is the people who can uproot this menace by their constructive and educational work among the masses.
