Sultan Ahmed. | 9 years ago | Reply | Recommend Now it is open to all, no any Muslim can commit such crime, as being done,on the name of Islam, and on the name of so called Islamists. In fact, there is a power behind this satanic act, who want to destroy the solidarity,integrity and security of this Islamic state,Pakistan. I understand, all the Muslims countries of the world should move forward and take a comprehensive action against the powers undermining Pakistan. Primary duty, yes it is primary duty of all political parties of the country create unification among their ranks, and think what is essential for betterment of the state,
