Two bomb blasts exploded at the finish line of the famous Boston Marathon on 15th April, leaving four dead and countless injured - some of whom will me maimed for life or will lose their limbs forever. A gory and awesome incident which must be condemned as targeting and killing of innocent people is not only act of cowardice but also inhuman and barbaric.
The entire world media is showing headlines and footage of the blast and photos showing of the blast victims. One really feels for those who instead of watching a sport event since 1897 has been a regular annual event of Boston, USA.
But I was just wondering why not the world media shows the victims of US drone attacks carried out heartlessly which kill more innocent civilians, mostly women and children, in Pakistan and other US targeted countries?
Are these victims children of a lesser God? Aren't these humans just like that eight years old boy that lost his life in the Boston blasts? Doesn't world conscious cry when they see these children dying for no fault of theirs? Why such deaths do not make headlines around the world?
Doesn't this picture of a mother cuddling her two daughters while dying move the conscious of the world and the world media, which only report of the militants and Taliban - but not these innocent people and children who die as a consequence of collateral damage?
The US soldiers in Afghanistan pee on the dead - one soldier goes on shooting spree and kills sixteen women and children - even some soldiers cut parts of the dead bodies of the militants and pose with their war 'trophies' - but the world remains a silent spectator. Even those found guilty of crimes above are given very light punishments attributing their crimes to stress es of war, rather than vengeance and cruelty of highest order.
When would the world conscious awake?
