It is really sad that people are being killed on the orders of a few!!! May it be the taliban leaders or the government who issues the orders. Pakistan was created for all it's residents. Will the killings ever stop??? May it be Fata or Karachi, is this what Pakistan was created for???

Terrorists have hit residential areas and schools, therefore consulate's location doesn't matter for them.
