Dear Ansar Abbasi, Here Are A Few Things That Are Actually More Dangerous Than The New Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Logo

By Sajeer Shaikh | 1 Jul, 2017

A while back, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Higher Education Department revealed their new logo for their Elementary and Secondary Education systems

To a lot of people, the new KP logo was just that – a vibrant mix of colors that could, perhaps, symbolize prosperity and a colorful future for the children within the education system.

And, let’s be honest, the logo wasn’t too different from those we’re already used to seeing:


However, some people objected to the logo as it seemed to be reminiscent of the LGBTQ flag

Ansar Abbasi, a Pakistani journalist and a senior staff member at The News International, seemed to agree with this train of thought

Chalo, okay, let’s say that for a second, Ansar Abbasi and his anti-rainbow stance is reasonable. We all know colors can be intimidating. Too many colors at once in one logo – even though logos of the same kind with different variations have long existed – can terrify certain people. And okay, maybe the logo, with its four colors, may resemble the seven-colored (read: rainbow colored) LGBTQ flag to some extent and have absolutely no other connection whatsoever.

However, on the flip side, here is a list of things that may actually be in the running to be considered more dangerous than the new KP Education Department logo:


1. Aamir bhai’s qaatilana sawaalaat

Remember the time he grilled Meera Jee for the answer he so eagerly wanted to hear? The entire segment was, uh, interesting to watch. Watching Aamir bhai get excited with every answer, though. Very NSFZ (Not Safe For Zindagi.)


2. Or the way he deals with young children

Raise your hand if you feel personally victimized by the way Aamir bhai treated those poor kids from Karachi American School.


3. Pakistan’s unwillingness to stop roasting Virat Kohli

So this is dangerous mostly for Virat Kohli, since his inbox/DMs are probably cluttered with the following message:


4. Dakus in Karachi, even if they can’t get the job done

You know times are bleak when even dakus can’t do their job right.

5. The baarish in Karachi, tbh

Let’s not lie to ourselves, the rain flooded Karachi. Like, yeah, many areas have cleared up, but many still haven’t. And we can’t just overlook the electrical outages that happened as a result. Karachiites love the rain, but the rain doesn’t seem to love Karachiites.


6. Meera Jee on Twitter

She’s slaying people left, right and center on social media without any mercy whatsoever. You really don’t want to get on her bad side.


7. Justin Trudeau

Our man, Justin has been warming our hearts through Eid messages and his interesting choice in socks. Larkiyon ke dilon ke liye kaafi dangerous hai, tbh.


8. Pretty much anything else on the planet

For those of you who may not have caught on, the list above is a sarcastic one. However, on a very serious note, our society is plagued with countless matters we could legitimately be worried about. Climate change, honor killings, child abuse, target killings and our poor education system are only some to name. With matters like these at hand, can we really go around calling a logo dangerous, especially when we mean it in all seriousness?


The KP Education Department actually tweeted out a clarification regarding the matter, too

Perhaps Ansar Abbasi had some other logo in mind when he sent out the tweet. Or perhaps, he, too, misunderstood and misinterpreted the logo like many. Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
