God did this....

In an interview with a leading english daily newspaper, Qazi Husain Ahmad, the leader of Jamat e Islami, the right wing religious party has stated that whatever happened in Lahore and Peshawar due to rioting due to publishing of blasphemous cartoons.. was the will of God. He made the comment to a question that whether the rioters were justified in burning cars, motorcycles, vandalizing property, ransacking everything.

Yeah! tell this to the poor guy who had his motorbike burnt and Qazi sahib you'll have a boot somewhere! Qazi sahib let me quote something as well...
[42:40] And those who, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, help and defend themselves
[42:41] The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto. but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah: for (Allah) loveth not those who do wrong
[42:42] The blame is only against those who oppress men and wrong-doing and insolently transgress beyond bounds through the land, defying right and justice: for such there will be a penalty grievous
[42:43] But indeed if any show patience and forgive, that would truly be an exercise of courageous will and resolution in the conduct of affairs
Uh oh Qazi sahib. Problem here. God is telling us to show patience and not be aggressors. Although He does what He knows best, He is also advising us something. After all...
[42:30] Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because on the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness
So do good deeds and get your reward! Simple
[19:76] GOD augments the guidance of those who choose to be guided. For the good deeds are eternally rewarded by your Lord, and bring far better
May I ask what did people of Pakistan had done wrong that such measures were taken against them? did they publish the cartoons? why ruin your own country and have fellow human beings killed for no reason?
[7:199] You shall resort to pardon, advocate tolerance, and disregard the ignorant.

But do you really care?
