Your secrets will most likely be what sets you free. What frees you from the fear inside of you. It might be the thing that gives you the courage to live life truthfully. All of these many things you believe are your deepest and darkest secrets are also going to be the thing that gives you your greatest and purest happiness’

    Your elder, Hussain Imaan, from Mogadishu … also talked about things you are now talking about … but it was many a years before Somalis took to Piracy and Terror as their means of livelihood …

    Imaan was visiting Pakistan as my business guest, who unfortunately had travelled to Karachi without a valid Yellow Fever vaccination certificate, and so, landed up in Quarintine quarters of Karachi International air-port … 

    I therefore, had no options but to visit a Quarantined Hussain Imaan and discuss the prospects of our proposed Pak-Somali Joint Fishing Venture … 
    It was natural for me to know more about, what then, were nascent civil-war like conditions in Somalia and how they could possibly affect our future business prospects. 

    Reckon your were yet to be born … but Somalia, of forty years ago, still had the “Horn” on its map … it was also very rich in its continental shelf and off-shore marine resources of the Arabian sea … but when it came to prospects … Imaan, told me of the invisible ”foreign” hands that were at work, busy creating ”anarchy” for their own designs and purposes … 

    I could therefore, say, I have a fair idea of the background, of what you now refer to, as the primary cause/s for whatever is happening in today’s Somailia … 

    Being a born Voice raiser against Tyranny, any time any where … I raised my voice against this invisble foreign inteference in Somalia’s internal affairs with Imaan … in sync … at all the relevant levels in Pakistan and we did manage to find few sympathisers in the Media, who promised to highlight the issue …

    We now had a reason … the Fishing Joint Venture proposal between Pakistan and Somalia had grounds, to move forward … But soon after Imaan’s departure for home, I learned that Peace loving Hussain Imaan had been murdered by “rebels” !

    I can therefore say … You may voice your concerns, argue rationally … but rerst assured … all these will fall on deaf ears .
