What can one say about the tragic assassination of Shahbaz Bhatti, the sole Christian member of the Pakistani cabinet? What a tragedy that Pakistan – which was specifically created as a haven for Muslims in the subcontinent – has turned into such a spectacular failure and embarrassment. A country which was supposed to have led the world as an ‘example to the nations’ has turned out to be a failed state where a rampantly corrupt military steals the little wealth the country possesses and extremist groups appear to thrive. And what a gift for moronic Islamophobes such as the Daily Telegraph’s Damian Thompson. How sad.
