“In Pakistan, underground parties push the boundaries“ (via Reuters)

Wherein elite Pakistanis blame everything on religion - moderate or extreme, doesn’t matter to our awfully privileged Pakistanis - while spending money on tickets to farmhouse parties that would cost the lower-middle class Pakistani a month’s income. Never once does it actually occur to the rich kids at these raves that the divide they find so “messed up” is not exactly a religious one, but a blatantly class-based issue. The “servants and the drivers” waiting for these upper class whiners don’t judge on the base of religion; They judge on the basis of class divide and the treatment the elites give them. The servants and drivers get the worst treatment from the elites that whine day in, day out. In 9 out of 10 cases, these “menial workers” don’t give two shits about the religion you follow. They only pity you as you bemoan the “unfairness” of life while you gorge on food, alcohol, drugs, special protocol and luxuries they could never, ever afford. Not to forget your parents evading taxes. Your parties don’t push boundaries for the majority of this country. Your elite denial, arrogance and deliberate ignorance towards the basic issues of those far less privileged is “pushing the boundaries.”
P.S. Reuters, where is your common sense?

Because everything about Pakistan is either Islam destroying A, Islam destroying B, Islam destroying C, Islam destroying your upper-class, no-entry-for-poor parties attended by American diplomats, but never ever should we mention the class difference here. Good job, Reuters. Thanks for framing this within religious context like usual.
