@Ayesha M:

Typical Pakistani mindset:

Bomb blast in Peshawar: Blackwater/CIA Bomb blast in Lahore/Karachi: RAW Rebel attack in Balochistan: RAW/CIA Sectarian attack in Quetta: RAW/CIA Pakistan loses cricket match: Match-fixing

My point here is that it's NEVER our fault. It's always someone else's fault. And this mindset is why nothing here ever changes. If you don't even accept that you have a problem, how can you ever overcome it?
