I want to express my solidarity with all minorities, non-fundamentalist and with non-fanatics. Our commentators, Ullemas, article writters(irrespective which newspaper they belongs to) shall be ashamed of their act by NOT CRITICIZING religious FANATICS and fundamentalist. Their soft-spoken words, writtings and soft soft polite humble "request" and content of writting shows that how hypocrate they are !! Shame on their part. Why dont you buy some some BANGLES for yourself from KANGAN MEHAL? We dont see any article from any person critisingtalban for all the terrorism they spreaded since Zia-Ul-Haq time. Are you deaf ? Are you blind? Or your hands are broken ? Arn't you have courage to speak against religious fanaticism? Have you seen any FATWA coming from Ullema saying that killing of innocent people is HARAM in Islam and whoever doing this is KAFFIR ? Did you see any Fatwa ? Why ?

Not only should we declare solidarity with them but should provide jobs to them in offices and factories and also in military services, there was a time when all secretarial jobs were done by christian ladies.and they did a wonderful jobs and they should be provided discounts in fees in colleges they are good patriots and the government should provides them help as much as possible.

if you really want to show solidarity with your christian brethren allow them to share your table with you and dont keep their utnesils separate from yours when they come and clean your bathrooms, and allow them to do something other than clean your gutters and your toilets

The "Muslims" of Pakistan are now "concerned" about the "Non-Muslims" after realising that the situation has finally arrived to the point that "Muslims" are now killing "Muslims". Too late now; the wrath of Allah keeps coming in the form of terrorism, foreign and regular attcks on Pakistan soil, social ills, economic disaster, earthquakes, etc.

Our heart goes out for the innocent Pakistanis, belonging to any religion, creed or cast who laid down their lives in the crime of being ordinary citizens of a country founded in the name of Islam (peace). The minimum we can do is total boycott of thoise leaders, political or religious who have any allegiance with the killers. Secondly, DAWN could have been intelligent enough not to upload pictures with 'all smiles'.
