This is the most Nawaz Sharif can do! After so many lives lost. I think still it is good to see some one woken up! I wish all politicians will do better about all the relgious, secterian organizations by banning them all. All outfits, Sunni or Shia doesn't matter. These groups have one thing in common and it is spreading hatred among people. It is duty of all Shias to pay respect to Sunni brothers and their respected figures. Same thing is for Sunnis. Freedom of religous beliefs must rule in Pakistan and else where in the world. At the end all humans believe in one creator so why bother with small differences. Hard for a common Pakistani or Afghani or Arab to accept it simple. But in it's simplicity we can find peace and harmony. Allah means love not hate. It is just strange to see how much hate Lej (Punjab) has for Hazaras! Is it because Hazaras defended their homes in Afghanistan? What if Hazaras and other Afghans had raided Punjab, lets suppose. Hadn't had Punjab acted the same like Hazaras (Afghanistan) had acted to repel Lej, Taliban and Al-Qaida from their home town! It were all Shias and Sunnies who defended against Lej, Taliban and Al-Qaida. Hazaras of Quetta shouldn't be punished for Afghanistan's Hazaras stance against the invaders. Wish everything is made clear. Nawaz Sharif must exterminate Lej and similar outfits from Punjab. Hazaras don't hate Sunnies. Believe it.
