discostu | 10 years ago | Reply I hate this about Pakistan. When our so called politicians die or are killed, these sad and petty people will never put Pakistan's flag on their coffins. It is always a political flag. We are Pakistani's first and last. Ethnicity, religion and sexuality have nothing to do with it. Until we realize this, we will remain a failed state, filled with people who are nothing but intellectually stunted children.
MIR | 10 years ago | Reply Very tragic incidence, killing of any human being, irrespective of his belonging is deplorable and killings inside sacred places like Mosques Imambargahs, Churches temples or synagogue is more than deplorable. What had followed after the killing of Mr. Raza Haider within the whole city shows that it was a preplanned game of miscreants with their own objectives. Scattered violence, including arson attacks and intense firing, in different areas claimed at least 26 lives, within few hours, later on it was reported to be 45. Who could do this inhuman act? Any God fearing or religious person? I guess not. Any patriotic person? I guess not. Any normal human being? I don't think so. Then who and why? what could be their motives? Could it be to bring about betterment within the country? Certainly not. Do anyone have the rights or liberty to kill anyone? absolutely not. Is killing anyone, anyone is Islamic? Not at all. Is it not contrary to the teachings of Islam? Majority of the population of this country is Muslim and Islam does not allow killing of any innocent person. Are we unable to track down the hidden hands and the hidden motives? Do someone has answers to the above questions?
