Afrooz | 5 years ago | Reply at least our BD brethren are having the guts to go after radical islamists. Why cant we muster up the same courage? The mullah of lal masjid is getting primed to go crazy on us again. So much for the new laws - nobody is doing anything. Also why haven't our leaders protested with Saudi Arabia hangs our citizens at the drop of a hat? All paper tigers if you ask me
