IT is sad to hear that graves of Ahmadis have been desecrated by armed men a few days ago. Amazingly, the incident happened not in any far-off area, but in the heart of Lahore.

More deplorable was the attitude of the police who reportedly denied registering the case, at first. This reflects a magnitude of so-called Talibanisation of Pakistan.

If the authorities keep denying justice, there will be no peace.

I fully agree with the writer. People seem to have lost their minds. Is government capable of doing anything - NO.

Desecrating of christian graves in karachi (gora kabarstan, just opp. the saddar police station on share-e-faisal) by armed men took place last year and no case was registered. So much hatred that you don't even spare the deads of 2% minorities. All can be said is 'Lord have mercy on them'
