@Muhammad: Its this mentality like yours which is responsible for the current situation of the country. Individuals(read liberals) like you with half baked knowledge of religion are most responsible for this situation.

May your comment reflect the glorious name you are using.

It seems that the level of tolerance has been evaporated from the society long time ago.

I don't know what the deceased Pesh Imam may have said in the Khutba of last Juma prayers?

Does any body know who has killed the Pesh Imam Sahib?
