    A country where the rulers are not only above the law but are also extremely corrupt can never ensure equal rights for every citizen. The only guarantee is to have the speech of Quaid-e-Azam of 11th August 1947, before the constituent assembly of Pakistan as the basis of our constitution. Hindus, Ahmadis, Christians, Shias and linguistic minorities must feel confident to live a respectable life in a country which was created in the name of Islam "peace".

    making people leave is a well planned strategy. Remember Gilani,s interview with Becky Anderson where he why dont they leave is stopping them. Why Rehman Malik is trying to stop them leaving. Is is not what they want.

    Yea right – ask Salman Taseer that for trying to protect a christian woman from a truly blasphemous law – ask the late minister of minorities Mr. Bhatti – that and the morons celebrating killers like Qadri. Who are you trying to fool? You are sold to wahabi riyals. Now let them open some more madrassahs to brainwash whatever little brain there is left in Pakistan in the name of "religion".
