  1. How can a person kill his own 3 year old daughter. The only explanation is that "Zamana – e- Jahiliyat" is back and we are in the same inhuman state as people were 1400 years ago

    • His or someone elses, its the same thing, Fazal. The daur-e-jahiliat never stopped in the middle, I think. What might have happened in the middle would be media not covering these issuses, at least not this openly. Violence has always been there. As long as there is human, there will perhaps always be such people around, just in different colors, doing things their own way. And they say human beings are better than animals,,,,

    • Mr fazal….kisi tarha pta nhn chal sakta k us zalim insaan ko saza ho gi ya nhn???
