    Please waste them in an encounter. Please don’t take them to the courts, our pathetic laws would ultimately result in ‘benefit of doubt’ and these killers would be free to go on rampage again.

    Terrorism is a billions $ industry. Soon a foreign funded Lawyer will appear from no where to plead the case of terrorists and arrange for early hearing and sooner release through the courtesy of the courts.

    These filthy figures should be inquired as to who is there supporting them and it should be brought to account by acquainting the masses of Pakistan with the original conspiracy and the dirty bipeds responsible for all of that inflicted upon our beloved country. Open trial is suggested by me to put these brazened faces. General masses should also be aware of them who are curious a lot.Recommend

    I totally agree with Mohib. These animals must be killed on spot. There is no need for process of law in such cases.
