The people especialy poor and living in rural,desert or remote area of the earth,need peace and chance to survive.Terrorism or jihad cannot give peace or prosperity to mankind,whatever the agenda or aims may be.Islam is very respectable religion with message to spread brotherhood,art and peace in world.I am very happy to see the 12 pictures after Pakistan on the road again situation.India always says,"Live and Let live" means Jio aur jine do.God bless all and hope all get prosper and smile even in the days of miseries or proverty.
