Pakistan has been under the grip of suicide bombings ever since the Lal Masjid saga ended . Since the July 10 operation against the Lal Masjid in which more then 80 people lost their lives, Nearly 200 people mostly Security Personnel have been killed while 263 wounded in 21 incidents of suicide bombings, rocket attacks, abduction, terrorism and bloodshed in NWFP and tribal areas which seems as the reaction to the operation silence that began in Islamabad on July 03.

It has been widely speculated by the general public that the recent spate of suicide attacks are a back lash of the Lal Majid operation as mostly security forces and policemen are targeted.

The Government however is refusing that it is a reaction to the Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa operation but it cannot be ruled out.

President General Pervez Musharraf while addressing the nation recently had said that the terrorists, who were present in the Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa during the operation, belonged to tribal areas and NWFP.

Following the President statement, security forces were targeted in NWFP including tribal areas and Northern Areas in which nearly 200 people lost their lives and over 300 other received injuries.

Most ironic is that people of Islamabad, who had always felt safe from the violent incidents, as the capital city is virtually a fort with all the security , saw the unfortunate incident of possible suicide bombing at Islamabad district courts on July 17 in which 18 people were killed.

Here are some questions
1)Is the spate of suicide bombings a reaction to the Lal Masjid operation? If it is, is it justified?
2)Are we as citizens of Pakistan paying a price for its governments decision to side with the US?
3)Should the government impose an emergency in the country to control the law and order situation?
4)Should President Musharraf step down with some dignity to defuse the situation?
5)Can Pakistan become another Iraq?

India and AFghanistan Solely Behind Terrorism in Pakistan

Undoubtedly it's INDIAN State Sponsored Terrorism in full swing in Pakistan. India is using Afghan puppet government support to sponsor, train, fund and arm terrorists in Afghanistan and then inject them in Pakistan. US role in this this terrorist attacks cannot be ruled out as Afghan puppet president is a US citizen and gets his directives from US and it's impossible that US that controls the ground and air in Afghanistan is unaware of Indian terrorist activities and outfits operating in Afghanistan against Pakistan.

Shame on you terrorists.

Before blaming others just try to see your neck. Just look at your sleeves and try to check how much blood stains are there ! You had served milk to snakes hence you should not be afraid of getting a bite from them. Don't blame India, we respects human values and don't believe in killing innocent. Try to put your own house in order to get peace in future.

Why so much hate?

Dear Reader,

I wonder why there is so much hatred towards hindus/Indians in Pakistan when Pakistan used to be a part of India and ancestors of people living in Pakistan or Kashmir were Indians; they were not migrated from Saudi or Persia. Why so much hate? We humans have been fighting over land and religion ever since the beginning – Has anyone talked to Jesus or Allah recently?

The point is that no religion tells you to hate your neighbor and before blaming others look at your own family, county, state, and country and think about how imperfect they are in so many levels… this goes for all the religion and countries in the world.

Terrorist State of INDIA: Source of terrorism in the region

Terrorist state of India and its criminal government is solely behind the terrorism and violance in the region specially in Pakistan. Terrorist state of India has registered the support of failed states like Afghanistan and its stupid puppet leadership to use Afghanistan as a terrorism spring board against Pakistan and it's people.

It's shameful that Pakistan is so slow to react and respond in kind. It MUST deport all Afghan's in Pakistan back to their miserable country within 24 hours or else let Pakistanis settle their score with them with full impunity. It should also announce that all cowardly Indian acts of terrorism will be responded in kind.

Pakistan and China MUST also forge deeper ties with Nepal, B-desh, Sri Lanka, Mynamar to place curb on Indian terrorist ambitions and the ulterior agenda planned against these two nations.

He is Saying Truth


"I think this is a -hindu plot to force implosion of land of the pure. I clapped hands when attack of dilhi parliment building but now same jihadis are bombing our brave soldiers instead of killing apostates. THese serpents jihadis are biting hand that feeding it, are they have no shame. I think we should give independance to BLA and change Durrand line and build wall to keep serpents out of Pakistan." - Samiula, United Arab Emirates

No cover up. This guy is telling the truth. So Pakistan is feeding Jihadis?? Thank you for accepting it.

INDIA Mainly behind destabilization of Pakistan

Terrorist State of India is the root cause of instability and terrorism in Pakistan.

It is an established fact now that India is arming, funding and training these terrorists in Afghanistan with full support of Afghan government by throwing few pennies in its begging bowl. Abduction and killing of Chinesese in Pakistan is another part of Indian agenda. Presence of Indian terrorist training camps inside Afghanistan are no secret and you can actually take a taxi to these camps in Afghanistan.

To our utter frustration, Pakistan is not even making a case against India and others that have unleashed death and destruction on Pakistanis.

It's time we as a nation wake up and collectively face and foil all the foreign terrorist conspiracies against Pakistan.

Dr. Asghar S. Afridi, Pakistan - 21 September, 2008

Terror

Instead of trying to dream up conspiracy theories about "Hindu involvement" in this tragedy in Islamabad, which is utter nonsense, it would serve the people of Pakistan best to acknowledge and accept the fact that it was radical islamists who committed this heinous act.

Wake up, Pakistan, islamists want to bring you back five hundred years in time, and could care less whether Pakistanis are slaughtered in the process.

Stop the denial, and find the courage to root out these murderous and deluded islamist butchers.

Solution

Dear friends
We have findout the solutions to the problems,and not to create problem for another problesm.
1. Think why pakistan is made?What are historical bacground for its creation?
2.What are the contributions and sacrifices made for the feture of the country by whome and where and when?Why it lost eastern part , what are the mistakes thier leaders,diplomats,military,civilians .
3.Why there is so imbalanced and indiscrimination region wise, tribes wise, location wise, language wise,cultural wise in the country, they have not sown the seeds of nationalism and patriotism in the hearts and minds of the people, You have not produce a good leaders,statesmans,Judical systems are occupied by corruption and non islamic traditions , values, kafirs has been the seats of judges in a country, they dint have beard, turban ,see their dresses and way of style of living,
4.We have see through every angel, and every individual has to put their efforts and come out with a plan,
5.Education,science, technology, economy should be based on islamic system, see the syllabus and curritulim, adopt one national language and english as secondary , and give importence to Arabic language and other like French,German,Chinese and Russian so as that our people should learn and train to impart good technology,and good co operation from neighbouring countries and developed countries.
5.Mimimum qualification for a politician should be that he should have beard, faith in islam,patriotic toward the nation, and he should have studied at least Class 10 in pak only.
We are fighting with our own men and squeezing our own blood,instead of holding talks against security assurences, address their grievences and know their anger,their intentions, why,they are doing,what made them to do so, why they turned aginst ,we have made survery ,collect data hold seminars,conferences on national integrations.
it is right that the friendship with Russia ad USA is most dangerous, it is better to have with Iran,china, north korea,syria,GCC,Malaysia,South African countries and far East countries for economy and technology.
It is very destructive to go agaisnt taliban, we should convence them not to made trouble in this country. See your neighbour India,See Srilanka etc.,

Weak State

Dear friends
1.Why and what is the purpose of Creation of Pak?
2.What it achived and what it has lost, how ,why, what are the mistakes?
3.Why India is stronger than pak,pak lost eastern part,what is the problem,what the mistakes,circumstances,diplomatic and political failures?
3.Will pak will be islamic state, then why the people of it not give mandate to islamist parties,will they dint have faith in them?
5.What is the syllbus and curriculum, urdu and arabic has been neglected, no moral values in the syllbus,islamic teaching etc.,
there is no strong leadership,patriotism,integral security , divided over languages and tribes,will islam teach all those things?
though there are military general ruled pak but they have no capability to defend their airspace, nor they have trianing and skills compared to world powers and neighbours.
its domestic and foreing policy is depended on US or russian , why dint they have independent policy.
Helath secotor is very neglected even for minor treatment they are looking for India or toher, what type of medical education and what type of doctors they have,economy is also depends on us aid why they dint have better relation and project civil and military in islamic countries, why they have not trust in Iran,rather than india, why they dint have defence and ecomic and education cooperation with Balkans.
will it be a failed state?
there is not co ordination and co operation among the regions,they are giving more rooms to non muslims,idol worhip is not prohibited in public

If you want Democracy Alive

Guys,
I'm a person who always favour a better ties between Indians and Pakistanis. And frankly speaking, in India our politicians are notorious and in Pakistan though politicians are as great as Indian politicians but your army is notorious. If you seriously look at all these sucide bombing in pakistan and terror attack in Mumbai, their is a similarity in both the incidents. Pakistani Army, with hand in globe with ISI are slowly moving towards their goal of another coup in pakistan. They would have done this months back but because of US, they are hesitant. If you really love democracy, I suggest you people to co-operate with India for mumbai attack so that the real hand behind this henious crime can be exposed and democracy can survive in Pakistan.

People suffer

Leaders should focus on developement and get rid of such menance jointly. people are fed up of pushing countries into war. We still have large people poor and we are way behind the rest of world. We could have done jointly much for the people but we gone opposit to bring destruction.

Varun, Pakistan - 24 December, 2008

We do not see what people of this region want i.e. mature leaderships which talk of development and progress for benefits of people.

Suicide Bombing & its Repercussions

1)Is the spate of suicide bombings a reaction to the Lal Masjid operation? If it is, is it justified?
Suicide Bombings to kill innocent people can not be justified. This is a results of anger without control.
2)Are we as citizens of Pakistan paying a price for its governments decision to side with the US?
Time will reveal this truth.
3)Should the government impose an emergency in the country to control the law and order situation?
Govt as well as the whole world well aware of the prevailing situation and necessary actions are taken with minimum human casuality
4)Should President Musharraf step down with some dignity to defuse the situation?
Possibility to control Military rule again with the Mushrraf's leadership will be counter productive.
5)Can Pakistan become another Iraq?
It will be disastrous to think Pakistan become another Iraq. It will be another gloomy era of for rest of the region also
Wish to see Pakistan raise more strongly from this terrorists and give more stronger nation with more opportunities for people in every aspects.

Terrorism Menace

First of fall feel sorry for people who lost lives in suicide attack. Attack on Army is their own making. State sponsored terrorism which Pak army promotes without help of the civilian government is the root cause of the issue. I have so many Muslim friends who I treat them as brothers and cannot see them die. So peace loving people of Pakistan should question their army and make the goverment more powerful than a pupet it is now

Comments from Khalid Rahim

Led our"Spiritual Leaders" do
the honor of strapping the belt around their Children's bodies and lead them on this
Heavenly mission to meet the

someone else's child to be
slaughtered for their polity.
Khalid Rahim, Pakistan

Khalid Rahim, people with sense will sure share your view. May peace come to pure land soon and protect those children from those people who brainwashing innocents & transforms into suicide bombers in the name of Allah.

Literate

90% of Pak poulation are illiterate and they follow mullahs. Make Imran Khan the Pak President along with Inzi, Said anwar,Ramiz Raja as the elite politicans. Develop like us (Indians) in IT,Nanotechnology,Medicine,Space Technology,Bio-Technology,Enginering etc etc. Don't follow Jihad IT ( International Terrorism) It has short legs one day it will be chopped down. Grow as a nation Dreamed by Jinnah no hatred against Indians. Afterall we are the same people, who eats same,who speaks same and think same.We will help you in rebuilding.
