Zahid | 11 years ago | Reply Please be calm, and investigate the matter jointly, Americans are our brothers and Pakistan and American should jointly investigate the matter, so that, and also take preventive measures. Act of an Individual is not the act of nation. If Faisal convicted and found true, then stern action must be taken against him.
