Karachiite | 6 years ago | Reply ET please correct your figures more than 3,600 terrorists have been killed in total.
Timorlane | 6 years ago | Reply Amazing no follow up news in ET about the poor innocent 20 Pakistanis killed by terrorists in Balochistan. Neither no candle light vigil by "civil society" in memory of these innocent victims of terrorism Neither no condemnation from HRCP or HRW or from champion Madame Asma Jehangir !!!! What petty hypocrites you all are. We Pakistanis are ashamed of you all since you'd never be ashamed of yourselves as you have no shame
