Brutality is redefined in an era marked by extremism. Afghanistan is one of those extremism- and barbarism-hit countries, plagued with the vicious “Jihad” by elements like Taliban and Al-Qaeda. Since the intensifying insurgency is soaring in Afghanistan, the forces of evil (Taliban), besides attacking coalition troops, have been targeting those innocent foreign aid workers who, despite knowing they will be decapitated if caught by the forces of evil, continue serving humanity in the war-ravaged country. The handful of primitive chimpanzees who have not evolved, have been targeting neutral foreign aid workers, who have nothing with politics and the presence of foreign troops. Attacks, abduction and decapitation of foreign aid workers have increased lately, as the forces of evil have regrouped. Just during the previous month, four foreign aid workers have been killed brutally.
Last month, three women NGO staffers of the New York-based International Rescue Committee were ambushed near Kabul. The bullet-ridden bodies of the Canadian, Irish and American women were found in their NGO-marked vehicle. Many bullets had torn across their bodies — the reward of their lifetime of sacrifice and service to humanity. Salute to the Martyrs of Humanity.
Nicole Dial, 30, was one of the victims. She had been working in different poverty-stricken countries across the world, ranging from Africa to Afghanistan. The humanity-loving, kindhearted lady had left her home on the other side of the globe to bring smiles on the face of war-ravaged people, but it was not long before she was gunned down.
Jacqueline Kirk, 40, from Canada, was the other victim. Dr. Kirk, a child specialist, had been serving in the most dangerous part of the lawless land since 2004. Her bravery is a paradigm of devotion to serve humanity.
The third woman was the 30-year Shirley Case. Similarly, the Canadian aid worker had been serving in the area for a number of years before she met the unfortunate fate.
Just a week later, Kazuya Ito, working for the Japan-based NGO, Peshwar-Kai, was kidnapped by the forces of evil near Jalalabad city. The body of the 31 year-old agricultural specialist was riddled with multiple bullets one day after he was abducted.
We pay special tributes to the martyrs of humanity, remembering them with bleeding hearts. May their family members and friends bear the tragedy with patience. We also demand from the coalition troops for longterm deployments in the insurgency-hit areas across Afghanistan to better combat the forces of evil in order to get rid of them permanently.
