people said the comments from an old leader was correct that it was the war of afghanistan and now it is landed in pakistan,,actually they dont see that it is the war against the unity of muslims…against their success…it was started by planting people from their country..but then they came to know that people here are so ill literate even from their religion that they can be easily prepared by the planted molvis teaching wrong islamic teachings & do what ever they are said to do…. PLEASE AWAKE FROM THIS DEEP SLEEP OF ILL LITERACY…BE AWARE OF SUCH PLANTED MOLVIS …THERE ARE IN OUR MASAJIDS…IN OUR MADRASAS
