Oslo attacker feared ‘Pakistanisation’ of Europe

Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian terrorist who killed more than 90 people in two attacks in Oslo, was mortally terrified of the idea of several ‘mini Pakistans’ appearing all over the map of Europe.

In a 1,600-page manifesto titled ‘2083: A European Declaration of Independence’, Breivik laid out a stark picture of the future of Europe, citing poor human rights in Pakistan as the fate of the continent. Norwegian authorities confirmed on Sunday that the manifesto was written by Breivik.

In his doomsday scenario for Europe, Breivik predicts that several ‘mini-Pakistans’ would  be created all over Europe by 2083, one in each country due to ‘Lebanon-style’ conflicts. “It could be similar to the division of India after World War II, with the creation of one or several Islamic ‘Pakistan’ enclaves,” he says.

While Breivik’s rhetoric against Muslim immigration into Europe is not unusual, he cites many names that might be familiar to Pakistanis, including Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Maulana Abul Ala Maududi, as well as prominent human rights activist Hina Jilani and Dawn columnist Irfan Hussain.

He seems to believe that Iqbal, in particular, was sympathetic to communism and views multiculturalism as a Marxist concept. He quotes Iqbal as saying “Islam equals communism plus Allah.”

Breivik also claims that Pakistan is systematically annihilating all non-Muslim communities. He claimed that Hindu girls are being forced to convert to Islam in Sindh. In this context he even quotes Hina Jilani as saying: “Have you ever heard of an Indian Muslim girl being forced to embrace Hinduism? It’s Muslims winning by intimidation.”

He goes on to describe the situation for Christians in Pakistan as being no better, citing Father Emmanuel Asi of the Theological Institute for Laity in Lahore as saying in 2007 that Pakistani Christians are frequently denied equal rights.

Jamaat-e-Islami founder Abul Ala Maududi is also quoted in the manifesto, though in a manner that would imply that the stated objective of an Islamic state is to kill or subdue all non-Muslims around the world.

Breivik seems to be a fan of Daily Times columnist Razi Azmi, whom he calls “one of the more sensible columnists of Pakistan”. He mentions one of Azmi’s pieces where the columnist asks whether it was possible to imagine a Muslim converting to Christianity or Hinduism or Buddhism in a Muslim country, using it to support his view of Islam as an intolerant religion.

He also cites Dawn’s Irfan Hussain’s column criticising Hizb u-Tahrir’s vision of a caliphate.

His ire against Pakistanis and Muslims seems to have at least partial origin in personal experience. He speaks at length about his childhood best friend, a Pakistani Muslim immigrant to Norway who, despite having lived several years in Europe still appeared to resent Norway and Norwegian society. “Not because he was jealous… but because it represented the exact opposite of Islamic ways,” Breivik conjectures.

The inability of Muslim immigrants to assimilate into European society seems to bother him, which he blames on Muslim parents not allowing their children to adopt European ways. He also asks why Muslim girls are considered ‘off-limits’ to everyone, including Muslim boys, and why Muslim men view ethnic Norwegian women as ‘whores’.

He also seems to believe that the Muslims in Europe who collect government benefits view it as a form of jizya, a medieval Islamic tax charged on non-Muslim minorities.

He rails against multiculturalism, which he blames for making immigration too easy for Muslims in Europe. “When the veil of multiculturalism disappears, it will be Pakistanis who live in London, Turks who live in Berlin, Algerians who live in Paris and Moroccans who live in Amsterdam. And then the show begins,” he says.

That show, he says, is a dramatic demographic shift that he calls the ‘Pakistanisation of Europe’.

Do you believe Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik planned the Oslo attack alone?

    So some right wing extremist is upset that Arabs in France, Turks in Germany or Pakistanis in the UK are not assimilating well into European society, are doing low income labour jobs or collecting social assistance / khayrat. Does that justify killing innocent Norwegian civilians? Certainly not. Yes there are problems with Muslim immigrants all over Europe but if they don;t want to see Europe become some dysfunctional Arab state, or worry about the Lebanonization or Pakistanization of Norway, they should work within the system to stop the flow of asylum seekers to European nations through peaceful means and lobbying.

    It appears that the white supremacist terrorist Brevik shared the thinking of Nazi-loving Hindu Nationalists like Golwalkar and his Sangh Parivar buddies in power in many Indian states today.

    Nazi memorabilia, including Adolf Hitler’s biography Mein Kampf, are growing in popularity in India, according to the BBC. The marketing chief of Crossword, a national chain of book stores in India, told the BBC that Mein Kampf has “been a consistent bestseller for us.”

    At Mumbai bookstores located in upscale neighborhoods, the Hitler book sales have risen sharply from 40-50 copies a year to several hundred copies annually in each store. It’s not just the autobiography – books on the Nazi leader, T-shirts, bags, bandanas and key-rings are also in demand. A shop in Pune, called Teens, says it sells nearly 100 T-shirts a month with Hitler’s image on them.

    As a Muslim living in West,I do agree with some of his arguments. But how does that justify another terrorist act?? Too much of brain washing made him lose his mind and what he has done will only embolden Muslim terrorists as they would have a reason to retort..ha.. Another some liberals would point out how terrorism is not just a Muslim dominated phenomenon..well ninety percent are!!!
    A large part of Muslims in west have miserably failed to integrate to the host country and they almost consider it their right to be on welfare, ogle at non-Muslim women and force their religious views on everybody. It is allright/normal if you do not share the same cultural values as others but it is also important to have some gratitude to free, democratic countries which have given us an opportunity to fulfil our dreams, have a good career etc.
    Why not come back to the country of origin if we fail to integrate to the country which accepts us?? namak bhi khao, namak harami bhi karo.

  • Jul 25, 2011 - 10:52AM

    While some of his words may be true and others rather badly understood, does that give him a chance to kill ~100 young Norwegians? Or anyone, for that matter? The tragedy that Norway has faced is immense in a small country where little or no violence takes place. We face this a few times a day when it comes to ‘minorities’ (or even ‘majorities’, as in the case of women). We need to change our ways, understand and respect ‘tolerance’ (if the absence is what’s causing this).

    Historically European scholarship and society had anti-Islamic feelings after crusades. which descended 20th century. this event is outcast of anti-Islamic group, which is widely not acceptable in European multicultural democratic societies. But after 9/11 muslin fanaticism once again came in European intelligentsia and society through media’s negative projection. Militant view of Islam presented by global jihadis is not backed by majority of Islamic scholars and Muslims, it has sole political dimension than religious. We should not accept these false perceptions about Islam and any other ideology.

    his writings manisfest that he was upset why european women are available to everybody while on the contrary muslim ladies are not reachable even to the muslim men.
    This is only due to negligence of religions specially the christianity, Islam, Judism etc.

    I wouldn’t comment about the quotes.. but everyone knows or should know how propaganda based is the history we are taught in schools. Sadly the bit about muslims assimilating into Europe or muslim viewing european women as whores is not very far from the truth. Muslims in Europe have the wrong idea that assimilating means drinking or going to parties all the time, all it needs is being able to communicate (learning the language) and respecting europeans like you would or should respect every other human being….too much for a lot of people…
    None of this though gives anyone the right (muslim or not) to go start killing people. R.I.P to all the victims of these attacks.

I hope the islamofacism and Arab supremacism doesn’t wake up the beasts of white supremacism and Christian fundamentalism. then we might see the ugly fight of two beasts.

    Now, it’s high time that liberals in Islam come out in open and do something to save the religion. Today, no one, even Muslims, are reluctant to identify themselves as Muslims, whenever they go out. Few bad people have completely damaged the reputation of Islam as a religion and, I, solely blame Islamic liberals for this. How can they allow some terrorists to defame Islam? Why do they not come out and counter those who are giving a bad name to an otherwise, great religion? Why do they not come out and oppose LeT, AQ, Sipah-e-saheba, and Tanzims like these? Are they afraid that they would be targeted and killed? It is better to die than to face this humility. I reiterate my view that Civil society in Pakistan must openly come our and put pressure on Govt. and Army. Otherwise, they will themselves be responsible for putting last nails on Pakistan’s coffin. Raza Rumi, in reply to my tweet, said that civil society in Pakistan is robust and kicking. But I can’t see it anywhere. The civil society will soon be discussing factors behind cessation of Pakistan, if they do not react today. Some fundamentalists will not like my words here, I know, but i, as a true Hindu, I really want Islam to to shine. Religion guides us through difficult times and helps in finding and assessing ourselves. So, all religion, Islam in particular, must regain its glory and Pakistan can really show the way. What Brevik has done is just the inclination of things to come.

    I think his fears are genuine. HOWEVER, (extreme emphasis) what he did can never be justified. His concerns about Europe turning into conglomeration of several ‘mini-Pakistans’ is not entirely baseless. He said what he thought with reasons. It is true that Pakistanis reside in huge numbers in Europe, It is also true that Pakistanis despise the European culture, yet they are not willing to leave Europe. Classic hypocrisy by the way. Unless they accept their host culture by being tolerant and moderate, Physically-in-21st-century​-Europe-mentallly-in-7th-c​entury-Arabian-Peninsula Pakistanis will continue to alienate their hosts (segments of). Although it is unlikely that a huge government supported clean-up against Pakistanis will be initiated, but incidents like this one can occur again. A fascist organization may even come into being, but what do we expect when Pakistanis from Pakistan go to west, live their, and call their hosts infidels on their land, start protests, and then start movements and campaigns for making their host European democracies twisted and intolerant caliphates? The Oslo attacker should be punished, and will be punished by whatever their law says, but I think his concerns will now be looked upon very carefully, his legitimate concerns.

    Being a Muslim from Indian sub continent I can say categorically that the religion of Islam (truly Islam no sects or any other intercessions) is truly a peace full and tolerant religion. But have to say this for the Mullahs of Indian Sub Continent that they are the biggest Jahil’s around and the poor people who follow them also become ignorants showing intolerance towards not only Muslims of other sects but from other regions and other religion. These Jahil Mullah’s in order to gain power and fame have and are using poor people for their own glory. They (Mullah’s) have yet to work for the benefit of the human kind making them more prosperous and honest, constantly beating them down with the fire of hell and stopping them from progressing.

    Thirty two thousand Pakistanis including their locally born children make up less than 1% of the total Norwegian population.

    Oslo is the fastest developing city in EU. Migrants continue to arrive from 50 countries including Western & Eastern Europe, USA and Canada. Muslims from 9 Islamic countries constitute little over 1 percent (1.35% to be precise) of the total Norwegian population.

    Now if i say its a conspiracy it ll be a rhetoric but honestly i first thought that now Pakistan can not be blamed on this act of “Christian Terrorism” ( Christian Crusade is already in progress all around the world in Muslim lands) and then this news. Hats off to western media and hail to the white people how the move the events as if the real world simply feels like a reel world of Hollywood.
    Now i am unable to understand this whole nonsensical drama that a person fears “Pakistanisation of Europe and kill his fellow countrymen and then blame is shifted to Pakistan. now if i believe it all to be a massive effort at international level to sabotage and destroy Pakistan would i be drastically wrong ……. NO i think not ……….. consider this that just after the case of Raymond Davis in which US had to face great embarrassment in the world and president Obama had to lie in the face of whole world by saying that he has diplomatic immunity later found in court that he had none ……… just after that Pakistan army and ISI are being targeted almost in every international case, even the just cause of Kashmir is also being malign and linked to ISI to fulfill the nasty designs of enemies of Pakistan.
    now as i said in the start am i wrong in believing that a conspiracy is in motion against Pakistan or am I just another conspiracy theorist ……………………..

    When nothing works out or Pakistani’s are not able defend their activities. They normally do these things be it, a social problem, terrorist or economic problem.
    1. Total denial that such thing happening
    2. Conspiracy by the entire western world to isolate Pakistan
    3. Things happen other places too
    Finally, they will have their heavy meal and go for sleep. Repeat it for the next day.
    Pakistanis should look at themselves, itself a Islamic state, kills thousands of Muslims in the name Baloch struggle and Hindus, Christians by killing, converting, Occupying. These things does not happen in India. I strongly say, Pakis to keep quiet their tolerance to other religion has been ZERO . Non Muslims are not equal in Pakistan. Its constitution supports it. Charity begins at home. First clear your mess. Then you can call on Europeans and judge them what they do is right or wrong. This attack is totally condemnable. Recommend

    This is one and the same with terrorists claiming Islam as their motivation. While not condoning his actions, I wonder how Muslims view their way of living being the cause of such intolerance that it results in indiscriminate and poorly justified mass murder. The only thing different than what they did is that you’re not hearing the masses celebrating the incident, unlike in Pakistan and its surroundings.
    I might get hostile responses to that but, it doesn’t make it any less true. It’s not only a cause for Pakistan to check out the mirror but to check it out while knowing that they still have the one addition of receiving support in the action to still make it worse than what he did.

    Secular Humanism is a secular ideology of the West Europeans which espouses reason, ethics, and justice, whilst specifically rejecting supernatural and religious dogma as a basis of morality and decision-making. Pakistanis especially and Muslims in general have, as many norwegians feel, congested their liberal life-styles with their authoritarian Islamic life-style, which is totally opposing to democratic values of Western Europe. As college student I read from the dark age civilisations and wondered, but today Pakistan is a living hell of this dark age where killing of humans, persecutions, heartless people watching people dying of thirst and thousand such appearances are the order of the day. We people of Pakistan have collectively promoted Terror and every small dispute is settled either with bombs or the most modern weapons which have certainly not randomly landed in civilian possession. Majority of such Pakistanis mostly from rural areas of Punjab, live in Europe as a marginal group and are percieved from the indignous population somehow as the asocial Gypsies who centuries ago migrated from Punjab and never assimilated in the European life.

    I blame it on the immigrants that left Pakistan in the 60’s and 70’s and have since never come back. They try to hold on to the values and traditions of Pakistan back then without realising that Pakistan too has evolved over the years. The Pakistanis of Pakistan are more ‘westernized’ than the Pakistanis of Europe!

    Dont get me wrong, obviously totally against what this man stood for and his actions, but I think this hatred towards Muslims and Pakistanis in general will only grow in the future. Its a growing trend..Get Wilders of Holland and his growing number of followers is a good example. We, (Pakistanis) who live abroad need to realise that this is our HOST country….we need to respect their traditions while maintaining our own.

    The same fear in Europe is awakening as of with jews before WWII. But are really Pakistanis a security threat for Europe? …..NO, why?

    1) An overwhelming majority of Pakistanis working in Europe are of working class who have generally no ambitions of power, are doing mostly blue collar jobs. The most they do is they buy good cars and good houses if they can for showoff and flattery. The second and third generation tried to make some criminal gangs for example Oslo, which were busted effectively.

    2) Unlike jews of that time, or Indians at present in Europe, who can really effect opinion making because of their significant positions as intellectuals and professors, the Pakistanis seem to be happy with their earning and maintaining a good life quality.

    3) Special food habits does’nt mean lack of integration, which is probably cause of concern for many.

    4) There may be high rate of population in the earlier Pakistani immigrants to Europe but the later generations are learning to live with reality in the wake of high living costs and opting for smaller families.

    5) There is no consensus of Islamic faith the Pakistanis follow. They brought with them the basic conceptual disagreements from their villages which are deepend because they brought the village clerics also.

    6) The tendency of marrying within own circle is a legacy of agrirarian society, which will surely become obsolete, but slowly.

    With all these above mentioned points there seems no possibility of “Pakstanization” of Europe.

That makes about as much sense as the Taliban railing against America, then blowing up a marketplace in Karachi. These religious fanatics are ALL the same. With their agendas of hate, bigotry and intolerance.

    92 people have become martyrs for the cause of anti-Pakistanisation of Europe.

    Breivik methods are wrong and I don’t subscribe to his action, but every word of his 1500-page document is true. In the coming days, you will find more and more people, subscribing to his school of thought.

    If the man gets a public trial, his ideas will get wide publicity, the whole world will be made aware of the dangers of the looming ‘Pakistanisation’.

    Interestingly..Most of the things he has mentioned in his 15000 words treatise regarding Pakistan seems to be absolutely correct…However killing dozens of innocent people is absolutely inhuman and and a result of his own xenophobia and fear..But more importantly his actions doesnot mean that what he says about the flaws in our societies…Ironically no Pakistani here seems to question the reasons and causes of these evils within us rather are discussing the deranged person and his actions as some sort of consolation – or vindication of their view that nothing is wrong with us rather it is the people in the west who are on the wrong…….Recommend

To people who are persecuted in their home states?? There is no such thing as forced social integration!!! Get over it. I suppose Europe doesn’t care for freedom of life, liberty, and the due process of law! America’s strength comes from it’s immigrants-learn from that. We have mini Mexicos, Pakistans, Syrias, Irans, Afghanistans, Chinas, including mini European countries. It’s amazing! And fantastic. Granted there are right-zealots here as well, and they may bark more, but they are the minority. Surely ‘Europeans’ living Muslim countries continue to do what they do (except the women in public would probably prefer to wear conservative clothing…unless they are in Iran or SA where they have to- because that’s the law). Muslims forcing religion down their throats? On the contrary, it’s these fundamental Christians who literally hand you bibles on campuses and tell you to embrace Jesus as your Savior and Lord or you will go to hell. Whatever. All religious folks believe it’s their right to ‘save’ others – as long as they don’t kill you for it. It’s fine. Just don’t be around them if you have different views. Muslim women and men off-limits? Because there’s something called ‘chastity’ . Ask the Mormons. Peace! Recommend

The Christian Science Monitor has reported that “in the case of India, there is significant overlap between Breivik’s rhetoric and strains of Hindu nationalism – or Hindutva – on the question of coexistence with Muslims. Human rights monitors have long decried such rhetoric in India for creating a milieu for communal violence, and the Norway incidents are prompting calls here to confront the issue.”

Atrocious I agree and every sane indian (christian or hindu) will agree and feel its wrong..But on the other hand unneccessary provocation of burning a train full of hindu priests unleashed the hindu mobs in gujarat ..Riots always are like pressure cooker letting off steam .Generally its perceived that one strong warning is required to Muslim miscreants so that they dare not do such train burning incidents and that backlash is atrocious but necessary as per general right wing indians ( it includes christians as well) . But Muslims miscreants started attacking the general public through bombs in trains ,stations,bazaars ..As a christian I would feel If you respect Hindu tradition and their beliefs they are the most tolerant society you can find. Some Christian sects do abuse Hindus openly by calling them evil as Idol worshippers not really understanding the deeper meaning and spiritualism behind it. I challenge them whenever I can .Dont immediately compare with US or UK where they fought ,killed and became civilised after many centuries and now very tolerant and are first world democracies.

    When the news came out that a native Norwegian was the killer, I thought, ha, this is the first time that Pakistanis or Muslims were not involved in a global terror act. Now, after reading about his manifesto here on this article, it seems that what has been happening in Pakistan is indirectly “involved” in this dastardly act since this deranged man’s thoughts seems to have been driven by global Islamist terror and in particular Pakistan’s radicalism.

    We have been witnessing global Islamist terror for the past three decades. The only surprise is that there hasn’t been more anti-Islamist right-wing radical reaction until now. It was bound to happen. We will see more and more anti-Muslim reaction in Western countries until the Muslim countries stop supporting Islamist radicals and preaching bigotry against non-Muslims and get control of the radical Islamists among their midst.

    @Dinesh Chetti:

    You are personally guilty of what you are accusing Pakistanis of: Diverting attention from the fact that Breivik drew inspiration of the Hindu Nationalists’ rhetoric in India.

    “It is essential that the European and Indian resistance movements learn from each other and cooperate as much as possible. Our goals are more or less identical,” Breivick wrote in his manifesto. The Christian Science Monitor has reported that “in the case of India, there is significant overlap between Breivik’s rhetoric and strains of Hindu nationalism – or Hindutva – on the question of coexistence with Muslims. Human rights monitors have long decried such rhetoric in India for creating a milieu for communal violence, and the Norway incidents are prompting calls here to confront the issue.”

    Hindu nationalists in India have a long history of admiration for Adolf Hitler, and his “Final Solution”. In his book “We” (1939), Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar, the leader of the Hindu Nationalist RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) wrote, “To keep up the purity of the Race and its culture, Germany shocked the world by her purging the country of the Semitic races — the Jews. Race pride at its highest has been manifested here. Germany has also shown how well-nigh impossible it is for races and cultures, having differences going to the root, to be assimilated into one united whole, a good lesson for us in Hindusthan to learn and profit by.” (We, p.35/p.43)

    It’s ironic but true that Hindu Nationalists draw inspiration from both Nazis and Israel in their anti-Muslim rhetoric and actions.

    The Hindu Nationalist attitudes reflect a combination of deep animosity toward minorities as demonstrated by Hitler, and a desire to emulate Israelis in dealing with Muslims in and around India. No matter how one looks at it, these growing trends in India constitute a grave threat to peace in South Asia and the Middle East regions.

    @Riaz Haq:

    While there may be some parallels, it is erroneous to draw complete equivalence between Western anti-minority right-wing movement and Hindu nationalism. I am not an adherent of any right or left wings, western or Indian, but I would point out that Hindu nationalists want to emphasize ancient Indic culture as the identity of India as opposed to Arab, Persian or Afghan cultures. Here, the term cultural identity does not reject practice of any particular religion.

    Lately, more and more of, even, Pakistani intellectuals are coming around to the view that Pakistan’s national identity and culture should be taken back to its Indian/Indic roots and salvaged from sixty years of Arabization of Pakistani society. It seems to me that that is exactly the same as the main axiom of Hindu right-wing ideology. As long as the minorities have rights to practice their religion, separating religion from cultural roots is not a wrong notion. After all, Indian or Pakistani culture did not start in 700 AD with the invasion of Bin Qasim. It is sad that Pakistanis and many South Asian Muslims have been brainwashed to reject their 5000 year old history and adapt the backward desert culture of the invaders.

    Why? Is it a phenomenon? Do you see atttitudes among people supporting such behavior? The problem is with Pakistanis settling in countries of whose culture and people they have no respect of.

    you remind me of GW Bush, who could never see the reality written on the wall. Just writing useless comments linking hunduism and terror shows your shallowness in character. Hinduism is a peaceful religion. There never was instances of Hindus organise killings based on religious grounds, unlike Christian and Islamic histories shows. I am sure, we will not do it future too. Hinduism does not even encourage conversions. We like to be left alone in peace.

    Well hold on a minute, people who are drawing links between this particular terrorists insane actions and Pakistan/ Pakistani’s should be ashamed of themselves. If anything, Pakistan deserves more sympathy/ support now than ever before.

    Pakistan isn’t linked to ‘all forms of global terrorism’ as some foolish people here have pointed out, Pakistan has been the biggest victim of it – and anybody with any knowledge of global affairs will confirm that. So let’s not jump on Pakistan’s back for this or any other ludicrous example of terrorism. Let’s pat them on their backs for fighting it head on, at the frontlines.Recommend

    this insane man and some Muslim writers who just want to be called a sort of secular minded should read the history first. it wasn’t the Muslims who flushed out or converted the christian by force once they captured Spain but rather the Christians did so once they occupied it later and similarly what the Hindus did to Muslims and Christians even in India so lets not get into this theory of extremism we must have a balanced approach towards each and every problem whether that is religious or social, good and bad people are every where and in every nation and religion that doesn’t mean that the religion or the nation becomes good or bad. before calling Pakistan or Pakistanis terrorists i wanna ask those claimers that where were these Taliban or extremists before the soviet invasion over Afghanistan they were created by the CIA supported by the whole world and now when the interests of Americans are changed they became terrorists and the maximum world is also saying so (be clear m not defending Taliban) further more Pakistan suffered from this menace created by foreign agencies and our people and our forces are fighting against them took heavy lose to lives and property even than the world is not satisfied and blaming us for terrorism. nothing is wrong in our lovely Pakistan we are a responsible nation and want peace everywhere. i wanna ask those Norwegians who lost their loved ones in recent attacks in oslo and those Indians who lost their loved ones in Mumbai that how difficult it is when one lost his dear one all of a sudden for nothing, so is the case with us we have lost more than 30000 civilians and more than 5000 security force officials much more higher number than any nation in the world and we haven’t ended our struggle yet ..still we are called terrorists.

    You seem to have your head buried in sand like an ostrich. The reason the whole world blames Pakistan is because most acts of global act of terror have had a Pakistani connection. Best of all, all top global terrorists including Osama were caught or killed inside Pakistan.
    Defensive attitude such as yours and trying to shift the blame on to others is not going to solve Pakistan’s terrorist problems. Sorry to be so blunt, but I speak the truth.Recommend

    @Frank @ Hammad @ Iftikhar-ul-Hassan and @ Leon

    It was interesting to read your comments about the Pakistani Liberals where you are accusing them of defaming Pakistan and Islam. The liberals are writing about the bad things happening in Pakistan or writing about the violence being done by militant Talibans and they are writing to raise awareness about these issues. Their writing about these issues does not mean they are defaming Pakistan or Islam. I wish that you guys can understand that remaining in denial or Ostrich mode does not solve the problems.

    I wish you can understand and also help by raising awareness about these issues instead of behaving as apologists for the militants and violent groups like LeT, Sipah-e-saheba etc. Its actually these militants who are giving a bad name to Pakistan and Islam. And on top you add the inaction of a majority of our people who in their hearts support these militants because they consider them a lesser evil fighting a bigger evil USA.

    I wish you can understand this and stop falsely accusing the Liberals who are actually trying to raise awareness by talking about the hatred and intolerance prevailing in our society and talking about these militants for whom our people have soft corners.

    “Why shouldn’t we call him a Christian Extremist?”

    Simple! He did not shout “Jesus be praised” when killing those people, neither did he believe his God ordered him to kill them.

    Oh blast it! i mean another Pakistan connection? You know what, i believe that what he thinks should really really come to fruition after all. Its a mad bad world out there isn’t it? National interest is the main priority isnt it ? Ok, so if terrorism is used for creating ‘mini pakistans’ across Europe then I Jamal will proudly support it. The westerners are just asking for it. i live in Karachi and have never heard of a single christian being intimidated or converted, same goes for the hindus and other communities. Infact quite the opposite happens, we are such tolerant towards other communities that instead of intimidating them we intimidate and fight amongst ourselves , haha, sunni killing shia and shia killing sunni.

    I wish Breivik escapes jail and goes on another rampage. it will serve Europe right to experience what we Pakistanis have done for all these years, and for whom?…The WHITE Man’s global interest.

    This guy’s action based on irrational fear and hallucination was unwarranted for. There is no justification whatsoever to kill innocents replicating the dastardly act of Islamic terrorists he so despises.

    But there is a global agreement among non-muslims with the views that he is propagating.

    The extensive media coverage to Taliban, Al-Qaeda and innumerable fringe groups of terrorism have made terrorism, fantaism, barbarism synonymous with Islam.

    There is an urgent and immediate need to remove this perception to embark on a concerted widespread media effort on conveying there is an humane and all-inclusive facet to Islamism which has roots in loving fellow human beings.

    Pakistan is in an unique position to showcase itself as a nation of modern tolerant and progressive muslims not the hardline medieval Islam being represented by the terrorist groups. I am sure Pakistan (despite animosity in India-thank the one-sided version of history in history books of both countries) will emerge to be a goodwill ambassador of Islam globally in the year to come and not a harbinger of “Pakistanization of Europe”

    We surely have become hated throughout. Another hint towards the final world war people read some Quran and Hadith and educate yourselves, Bunch of confused identity cases. Stop trying to hide behind PAKISTAN and harness your true identity and that’s being a Muslim PERIOD! The whole world considers you MUSLIM NOT PAKISTANI !!!
