Let's say there's a book that's very important to you and your family. You love it, you cherish it. But some people in another house have a copy of the same book, and they don't adore it as much as you do. They leave it lying around, they accidently kick it, they use it as a doorstop. And some of them don't care if you know it.

At the same time, one of your children murders another in cold blood.

Which thing upsets you more; which event sparks your outrage and drives you raging into the streets in furor and anguish?

Well, if your family is modern-day Pakistan, that's a no-brainer.
