‘Get rid of Christians, keep Islamabad clean’: CDA’s Donald Trump moment

BY FARAZ TALAT

From the makers of the I-11 human rights catastrophe that left thousands homeless, comes a reinvigorated drive to not only keep Islamabad beautiful, but also dependably and homogeneously Muslim.

In a bid to garner legal support for its slum demolition drive in Islamabad, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) submitted a report to the Supreme Court, lamenting the Christian community’s alleged takeover of the government’s territory, identifying the influx as a threat to the numerical superiority of Muslims in the capital city.

The report runs like a classic diatribe by Donald Trump, caught on paper.

The five-page, typo-ridden document bashes slum residents as land-grabbing migrants who, presumably, do not contribute to the development of this country.

The word ‘ugly’ manifests repeatedly in the report as a description of the slums:

They “look like ugly villages” in the beautiful city of Islamabad.

They’re “ugly slums which present bad picture even (more) than ancient slums of neighboring city of Rawalpindi”.

Even without the icing of anti-Christian bigotry, parts of the report appear to have been ripped straight out of the diary of a stereotypically-elitist Islamabadi adolescent, curling his nose at the gross abundance of mud-huts; all forming an unsightly dark patch in an otherwise shining city, as seen from the romantic viewpoints of Pir Sohawa.
