Almost 100% of people on the no-fly and terror lists in USA and UK are Muslims. That is a lot for a 'peaceful' religion. In fact, even if Pakistan had a similar no-fly list it would probably consist of Muslims only. There are no Hindu on the list.

Tony Blair while visiting Pakistan in October 2006 said that over 75% of the terrorism related cases in UK had some relationship to Pakistan. About the same time, a UK think-tank published a report wherein they said that ISI was supporting the Taliban which President Musharraf loudly protested. This was before the US found him living comfortably there.

It's totall pathetic situation. No media, no protest, a deep silence around. What this mean are we pro sectarian attacks or we are natio with no conscience. I am recording my protest, please say no to sectarian attacks and terroristic attack, respect and love humanity. May ALLAH keeps everyone safe n sound.
