    Did not take very long for the “defenders of the faith” to show their true face. Now Hamza should take notice of this and exercise extreme care. Our land of “the pure” is at least thirty light years away from any form of civility. Recommend

    We have let loose the mulla. Our leaders are too cowardly to rein in these rabid people. The madras are churning out rabid mobsters who are ready to kill any one who follows any ism which is not the same that they were taught by their illiterate haters . I see no future for a moderate Pakistan . The day is not far when followers of half a dozen sects will go on a killing spree against each other and the educated elite would run in all direction quitting Pakistan. Sad for our country . We have a bleak future ahead .Recommend

    The root of present predicament that envelopes the entire world is preaching of hatred by religious leaders to those under them.For any positive change to occur we need to put aside our egos and political benefits and go back,preach and emphasize the teachings of the Muhammad (sa)which are the teachings of love & kindness to creatures of God irrespective of their beliefs.Recommend
