You are so far from reality. Unbelievable! Do you really believe in what you have expressed?. If you have any common sense, I am sure you do not.

I am sunni, Alhamdollilah....... But Allah has not given unany right to kill shia, Ahmadi, christian, hindu, or jews. No one has right to kill any human b-ing. Those who kill othes must be punished put them in jail. After all Islam is PEACE and LOVE. Sincerely, Ash Mirza (USA)

We don't really need foreign powers. We are good enough to shoot in our own foot.

We hate country but love religion , we hate democracy but love religion, hate western progress but love religion , hate everything else but love religion. Than wonder what is the reason for all this pain. Keep on searching .

Saeed Sahib, don't blame religion, blame yourselves; the problem is with the people of Pakistan. "Shall I not inform you of a better act than fasting, alms, and prayers? Making peace between one another: enmity and malice tear up heavenly rewards by the roots" - Prophet Muhammed (PBUH).
