Hon. President and Commander-In-Chief of the the most powerful Superpower in the Universe is a paying customer of Pakistan (some $20 billion US taxpayers monies, most of which is and was used for nefarious puposes and stolen by your leaders), and as such he or his surrogates, the CIA have every right to bend Pakistan a little and penetrate from behind into Pakistan’s “hot-bed”, FATA, as many times a day as he pleases, as agreed upon by your leaders.

Before Pakistanis start to complain about drones, get sore and uncomfortable, consider this , your own leadership declares every day “we Pakistanis are victims of terrorism” and “US must invest in Pakistan so the hopeless youth stop getting recuited as terrorists”.
After what the terrorists did to your other leader Benazir Bhutto, Pakistanis ought to be thankful to Obama for hitting the bad guys, but instead you are ungrateful? With “allies” like you who needs enemies right?

If you want America to give you unlimited Dollars in aid, then play by Obama’s rules. Its not that hard to understand. How else is America going to trust Pakistan with nukes and all the F22s and F35s you want, when you fail such basic test? Instead you give America a reason for distrust and are backing off from your ‘front-line ally” status already by not standing with USA and fighting shoulder to shoulder. How? By torching USA’s 250 loaded military trucks in Karachi and Peshawar enroute to Afghanistan based US troops. Do you think this is a good way to extract favors or money ot of a very kind friend and Superpower USA. You guys are really getting stupid!

Even Pakistan’s “all weather” and BFF China backed off helping Pakistan after what you guys did in Mumbai, evidence as seen and verfified by the EU and USA as Pakistani supported terror ativity.
Well I hope Almighty give Pakistani people the smarts to choose wisely to avoid disasters in your path, because your so called “leaders” will be enjoying wine with the Sheiks in Dubai when US or one of Pakistan’s neigbor does throw a “game-changer” at you to alter history and geography of Pakistan forever.
I pray to God that day never comes – but as you know some times prayers do get unanswered!

while several Indian bloggers have strongly condemned the activities of Hindu Fundamentalist (I do too), I have yet to see any Pakistani blogger do the same for LeT, JuD, JeM and other such groups. Am I the only one to feel so? This is the core of the India-Pak animosity.

Partition events were a reaction to muslim league’s “Direct Action”. Read from some neutral sources what this “Direct Action” was. It was the sick idea of Jinnah to foment riots and force india and britain for a seperate and evil pakistan.

Rest of the things you covered are, as i said, recent phenomena. Col Purohit was tying to do SIMI(Student islamic movement of India) on SIMI. But then this is not pakistan where anyone can walk out clean after mudering innocent civilians and hence he is being convicted for the blasts. Where are you with the Mumbai attackers and there backers in and outside of Paki institution?

Thanks but no thanks for the credit. We know where our failings are and are working on them rather than denying them. Where are you with Terrorism emanating from Pakistan? Unfortunately still in denial mode. Even after acceptance by your govt that the mumbai attackers were pakistani you still think that it was done by Indians themselves. Wake up buddy before your Frankenstein monster make your country rest in peace(RIP) for ever

As I said previously There is no Hindu fundamentalism otherwise there would be no pakistan because if we were extremist we would have never let muslim invaders come into our country, establish empires and forcefully convert hindus to Islam. So that AMAR will be not be converted to UMAIR and VIKRAM will be not be converted to AKRAM.

Moreover There are more muslims in India than Pakistan, if there was any such extreme hindu elements there, muslims would not be able to survive in India. If riots in 1947 had anything to do with Hindu vs muslims, we could also send the trains full of remaining muslims of India finely chopped. But obviously we did not want that.

Open your eyes Umair, wash them, remove the layer of hatred, try to see and believe the truth. Either you are a fool or trying to pretend one. Pakistan as a state always look for shortcuts. You dont have a long term vision. When you created taliban it served your purpose temporarily. Now its biting you. You created LeT and ZeM it worked well for you but payback is not far.

Now you have sold a large chunk of your land to China for GWADAR port, chinese are no one’s friend, they stabbed India once and they will stab you sooner or later. Choose right people in elections and try to do something creative for Pakistan, instead of trying to defend Pakistan on reuters with no matter how much stupidity and lies it takes.

“Hindu fundamentalism is a relatively recent phenomena and a kind of me-too with Muslim fundamentalism. The important thing is that Most of Indian populace do not support fundamentalism unlike Pakistan.”
So who killed thousands of muslims during partition? who torched and set ablaze the trains carrying muslims into Pakistan, when they arrived in stations, all that was found were burned bodies and an occasional survivors. Who killed Gandhi ji? what about the killing of christains in Orrissa recently? who burnt alive the Australian missionaries years back in India? Who are the VHP-RSS-BJP Bajrang Dal, Col. Purohit, Malegaon blasts, and other rogue elements in Indian Army. Hindu fundamentalism and terrorism is a well established phenomenon in India, these hindu fascists have infiltrated the Indian military and civil government, holding the country hostage. Mumbai attacks were infact a coup attempt to paralyze the Congress led secular government and incite a war with Pakistan. And dont you ever think the world is closing its eyes to all this, India will be exposed more in future. Its secular identity will be replaced by the emerging face of hindu extremists.
However chirkut, I give you credit for accepting the phenomenon of hindu fundamentalist, just one correction it existed way back since India was born. Its real face is emerging and being noticed by the world now.
