Mirza | 7 years ago | Reply "No Muslim would bring in weapons in the mosques and kill other Muslims. They must be foreign agents and non Muslims" This used to be a famous line by the defenders of these fanatic terrorists. Why would successive govt keep these culprits unmasked and unidentified? It is very simple to show and prove whether they are Pakistani Muslims or not. Unless the govt itself is protecting and releasing these terrorists.
Mirza | 7 years ago | Reply @Troubled: Many of us can appreciate what you have questioned. However, if the journalist really tells the truth and it is published then it would be the reporter in the next gunny bag. Our Pakistan has been hijacked by the fanatic terrorist Salafi who want to implement their brand of Islam on other main stream Muslims. From the killing of our Jinnah (yes there is evidence that he was killed) to Liaquat Ali, to ZAB, BB, Taseer, Bhatti and many others everybody knows who eliminated them but we never heard any name. These terrorists would never be unmasked. These are the assets who are used to eliminate every popular nationalist leader in the country and people of smaller sects. Gen Zia and his cronies are responsible for this fanaticism. Thanks and regards, M
