You know what is the easiest thing to do in Pakistan; coming up with a conspiracy theory. Therefore, everything from Polio vaccine to iodized salt is an American ploy to make our future generations infertile, and floods and other natural disasters are caused by Zionists/freemasons/Satanist or Xenu worshipers to cause grief to the great nation of Pakistan.
Last week, an email was circulated on Press Pakistan’s google group that has paled all the other conspiracy theories into shame. According to this gem, Apple – the brand represents the apple that lead to the exile of Adam & Eve from heaven and Steve Jobs is the Dajjal who is not dead and is making iPhone 10 in Bermuda Triangle.
If this is satire, it is hilarious but if it was written as a credible/possible theory, then the person should be locked in a padded room – pronto – and the key should be thrown away for good.
I am not translating it because it should be read in Urdu – in all its glory to retain the absurdity.
Three cheers to The Arrivals-esque generation.
