A Tribute to Peshawar Martyrs

OF all the evils that befell this nation since its independence terrorism has been the worst affecting people from all walks of life. There never has been eternal peace nor will it ever be but the evil of terrorism seconds none. Terrorists have no religion, nor do they have any respect for humanity and the December 16th, 2014 massacre of Peshawar speaks volume of the ruthlessness of terrorists who attacked the harmless innocents souls. It was an incident that caused restlessness among the whole nation and for the first time political leaders from government and the opposition alike demanded for strict action against the cancer of terrorism and efforts started to create general awareness in this regard because war against terrorism is everyone’s war and it is the duty of every individual to report any suspicious person or activity around him. It was with the ideal of promoting this spirit for fighting against terrorism and voice our hatred for the terrorist that on December 20, 2014 Pakistan Bikers Club planned a motorcycle rally from Barkat Market to the Liberty Roundabout, Lahore.

I feel great pain in mentioning that despite our general invitation to all for joining the rally and show our hatred for the terrorists only a few bikers turned out. Regardless of whether many avoided in fear of the terrorists or for any other reason, it was a must join rally for anyone who had a soul and a beating heart. Nevertheless, we moved for the Liberty Roundabout where citizens in general had already gathered on their own chanting slogans against the terrorists, with the media giving coverage to the protest. At Pakistan Bikers Club we have been organizing rallies to promote the idea of safe motorcycle riding but this particular rally was one of its kind and highly appreciated by those who witnessed. War against terrorism is not for the government alone to fight, it is everyone’s fight where every individual has a role to play regardless of his creed. United we fight!
