On Twitter, an American lady named Cynthia Ritchie has recently started arousing mixed emotions from people from various walks of people, mostly from Pakistan. Her work is primarily focused on portraying in the west a good image of Pakistan-a country she calls her second home. Cynthia, as we all like to call her, has single-handedly been fighting against the rats and the trash of Pakistani society most of which are now living in America. This Trash Brigade has members such as Husain Haqqani, Raza Rumi, and Yasser Latif Hamdani, whose Twitter handle is @theRealYLH as if he is some sort of a celebrity whose fake accounts exist.

Reminiscent of how the United States SEAL Team Six had 6 in its name in order to fool the Soviets that there were more of such highly trained elite forces. At the outset, I must wipe the mist off of the projected image of these self-righteous, self-proclaimed pseudo liberals. For starters, be warned that if you disagree with them you would be thrown into the dungeon for people who are wrong. Their mindset is basically that the two sides to every argument are; their side and the wrong side.

Someone wisely said that patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. Spoiler Alert: All members of Trash Brigade call themselves patriots.

I was personally flabbergasted at my first experience with them on Twitter when I criticised the western hypocrisy regarding Malala Yousafzai. I was and would always be critical of the western tendencies to claim to be the saviour of humanity by promoting and projecting people like Malala and converting them into a brand of western righteousness against the barbaric tendencies of whoever happens to be the hated entity of the west at a given time. Malala is not the first and surely wouldn’t be the last. There were many before her like Vaclav Havel, Yuri Orlov, and so........
