    Why doesn’t anyone catch these killers? When an American kills everyone goes berserk but when these thugs do, nobody even catches them. NOT ONE!!Recommend

    @Hatim….Catch them? Those who were caught previously will not be tried in Anti-terrorism Courts per agreement between the PPP and MQM. Yesterday the agreement was celebrated when the PPP showed up at nine zero and called it homecoming.
    Today, we have this news of five dead. How low the PPP can go? Recommend

    @Azad; clearly we have not achieved the independence of the judiciary when cold-blooded murders are settled between political parties and not in courts. Recommend

    And when an American does the same, it’s not settled diplomatically. The state of Pakistan…Recommend
