    This case still going on after so many revelations about the conduct of its custodians (deliberately did not use the word Maulana because many people have high regards for it) and the purpose for which that building was used (Mosque is a sacred place and where extremism is propagated can’t be called a mosque) is disappointing to say the leastRecommend

    Musharaf is hiding behind his ill health, instead he should accept his responsibility and tell the world that action was necessary to remove terrorists from a worship place. His cowardly behaviour is in complete contrast to present Army chief who is signing death warrants of terrorists.Recommend

    There are people both in judiciary and govt. who do not want to recognize his contribution to the nstion and wants to take revenge . On the other hand army is still behind him therfore no one in Pakistan can touch him . He will again come in power to convert Pikistan in to a secular terrorists free state and will be able to solve the Kashmir issue in one stroke .Recommend
