KARACHI: Instead of naming India and what not, why don’t we learn to call a spade a spade? After all, this isn’t the first time in Pakistan’s history that members of a minority community have been killed in cold blood. Some months ago seven Christians were burnt alive in Gojra and surely India wasn’t involved in that. In fact, at that time it transpired that a banned sectarian organisation was blamed for it but there was no follow-up action by the police. What I did see, however, was the Punjab law minister having a cordial meeting with a senior member of a banned sectarian outfit.
