Rejected Comment on Aasim Sajjad Akhtar’s ‘State of Cognitive Dissonance’ from Dawn’s Opinion Page

دسمبر 25, 2012

The writer of this piece displays a perfect example of cognitive dissonance by making conspiratorial insinuations regarding Tahir ul Qadri’s rally in paragraphs 3-5, only to condemn and ridicule conspiratorial thinking of ideological opponents in paragraphs 11-13. In reality the type of thinking prevalent in Dawn’s opinion page is exactly the same type of thinking which is found among those who blame Jews, Christians and Hindus for everything, it’s only the bogeymen who are different.
