Rex Minor yeah dude lets ban s*x too, this was invented before stone age which does not fit in 21st century concept. Only the first line of your comment made some sense, rest was total c--p. In Pakistan you have ban on Kamasutra but still its top googled word is p--n. About finding nice people: In which culture and which world people will kiss and hug you after you hit them with your car and try to escape? Indeed this incident was a good sign, people helped the victim who otherwise had no chance to get justice due to huge status difference between him and the diplomat. In an ideal civilized world diplomat should have stopped, helped the victim to go to hospital and apologized. It would have showed how cultured Pakistani are. As you jumped on Italian ambassador: If India was guilty why Italy did not take action against India even if it was capable to do so.
