Celebratory firing

Opened up a Pakistani paper this morning and read about one dead and thirty injured due to celebratory firing. "Celebratory firing" - really? In a country where so many die needlessly everyday due to terrorism, negligence, poverty, drone attacks, and crime; do we really need to celebrate the birth of our nation like this? Why can we not celebrate by doing something constructive and positive rather than firing into the air? Disrupting the peace and posing a danger to ourselves and others- is this a measure of our love for our country?  How about next 14th August, everyone pick up garbage off the streets instead or plant or adopt a tree in the neighbourhood?

Makes me shudder to think that one day,  someone will open the paper to discover that we nuked ourselves in celebration!
