Ha!Live and let live! When are we going to understand that? We’re on the Twenty First Century for Pete’s sake! Cannot force the wole world to their knees! It is a global globe, we are as humans and as close to them as they are to us, we cannot still believe in the imperial thoughts of the 19th century and snatch one more country and their choices. The proof being the Iraq holocaust and our $3 Trillion ridicule there.Get us out of there, Obama!

That is why these communities formed their own political parties and leaderships. If your Gandhi was indeed so inclusive, there would not be a Pakistan/Bangladesh/Kashmir problem today.

In our school text books, when we were barely 13 or 14 years old, the following was the start of a paragraph, on the 1965 war,by the Federal board of education, Islamabad. It goes like this:““Aur raat ki tareeki mey Bharat ki “Taddi Dil” Fauj ney hamari pak sarzameen per hamlaa kar dia!”” This is the line we were taught, from the very beginning! Bharat was always the aggressor and Pakistan the victim…I remember the posters, in which Indra Gandhi was shown as a vampire, sucking the blood of our country!It was a long time before a generation became adults, and aware to the lies that were rammed down our throats, by the rulers of this unfortunate land.These so called rulers, and not India, are the real vampires, sucking this nation dry. Be they Military or Civilian, they have sucked the blood out of our land, they have taken turns molesting and violating this nation.Today they have turned Pakistan into a Pariah State and have made our heads hang in shame, because we the people are meek and helpless against their tyranny, deceit and lies!What is happening in Swat and elsewhere in this country is horrific, gruesome and beyond words!The Talibaan Barbarians are taking over my country, killing, maiming and destroying everything in their path.The people of swat are fed up with the Government’s lies and now prey that anyone, even Israel or America come and help them! The Pakistan Army is butchering its own people! This is the hard, sad truth, here in this land of deception and wanton murder!We are like Lambs, waiting for our turn, in the all encompassing slaughter house, that is now Pakistan……KamalIslamabad..

They ignored the Muslim community and its leaders, which led Jinnah to leave Congress and join the All-India Muslim League.Swaraj doesn’t mean independence, it means self-rule. Meaning what Gandhi/Congress wanted was autonomy under the British.”Again ignorance at its worst! Like it or not, India has a majority Hindus.Gandhi fought for equality of all faiths. In fact he fasted unto death for saving Muslims. He fought for Muslims so much during the partition that he was shot and killed by a Hindu fanatic. Gandhi even offered Jinnah the position of leading India. Nehru was a highly anglicized and wealthy man who was secular to the bones. It was because of his efforts that India is where it is today. Kindly learn proper history from sources outside of Pakistan.Gandhi organized the “Quit India” movement asking the British to leave the sub-continent. Swaraj means complete self rule. If he wanted the British to quit, why would he need swaraj under the British? Please talk sense.

Please do not digress from the topic with fradulent references to Indian history and an ill-conceived meaning of the word “Swaraj”.

They ignored the Muslim community and its leaders, which led Jinnah to leave Congress and join the All-India Muslim League.Swaraj doesn’t mean independence, it means self-rule. Meaning what Gandhi/Congress wanted was autonomy under the British.

They say that the people want swift and non-corrupt justice, unlike what happens in India(and other parts of the world), where money talks and cases drag on for 5-10 years. They also say that the people of Swat as well as the Pakistanis are happy with the deal. But, making deals with the devil is no way to get peace and happiness. What will the Pakistanis do when the Taliban gets its hands on the nukes??? And, uses those nukes to get people in the region to do as they say? Can Pakistan and its people live that outcome? To not have girls go to school? Are the men who have children okay with their girls being married off to men 3times their age??? Are they okay with their daughters, wives, mothers and sisters having no access to medical care? For, if girls cannot go to school, they cannot be doctors. And, if they cannot be doctors, women cannot be treated for illnesses The taliban will never allow a male doctor to take care of a female patient. So, before you idiots make up your mind, think carefully.

Pakistan has seen many of crisis, rose out of rubble on 14 August 1947, saw a war immediately next year 1948, lost its founding fathers just as a nation is left orphan.–At least you got some excuse for failures of Pak. In all probability things would ot have been any different.@Come 1965, faced an enemy thrice its size, civil war followed in 1971.–Pak attacked the neighbour and made an enemy out of a potential friend. :-(@so far only muslim nuclear power in the world.–Here we go again. “nuclear” :-)@That Pakistan’s creation was a miracle, Pakistan is a reality.–It is the product of an insufficient imagination.@To All Indian fellows:Guys calm down, niether Pakistan is down in the drain nor the imposition of Sharia in Swat will start any bigger fireworks in Kolkata or Delhi. You sleep tight and take care of yourselves, everything is chill our side.–You be in denial. we are not going to go to bed with neighbor’s house on fire–it affects us. Yes Sharia does not–I am sincerely sad for the girls and women.Here is a video for you:Pakistani woman watches Taliban take over town she loveshttp://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiap cf/02/17/pakistan.taliban/index.html#cnn STCVideo@All in all this is a wise decision, it has closed the door of strategic failure. While this might be a tactical gain, the NWFP government has already said there is a long way to go.–Can you tell us the gains out of the peacedeal?One morePakistan is doing what Pakistan ought to dohttp://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/ 02/17/pakistan.taliban/index.html#cnnSTC Video

They also never wanted independence, they wanted “Swaraj”, self-rule.-posted by Aamir Alimessage Got truncated.”Swaraj” means self-rule , home rule i.e., independence from British——nothing to do with religion.Let us get back to swat.
