  1. what sort of security , in these troubled times at such a place as an airport?Bandit country- target killings , sectarian killings,here a bomb, there a bomb – no law and order in the whole country!nisar should be sacked They cannot provide adequate security internally, how will they safe guard their borders!

    • History has proved that for a new and troubled country like Pakistan military rule ( Iraq saddar Hussein ). Is the only way to assure any kind of peace. Martial law is what’s needed. Politics and parliaments can’t solve pakistans out of control violent problems.

  2. Provide shelter to Dawood, Hafiz Saeed and Osama. Please treat them as your State Guests!! Ultimately what you reap is what you sow!!

    • Actually Osama, Dagwood or Saeed are not attacking Pakistan. It’s bush and Blair’s war that has bought instability to Pakistan. Before this all Pakistani brothers ate in one plate. But typically of American and English their policy to divide and conquer is evidently working in Pakistan. Extremists and moderates are at war for the soul of Pakistan. While America watches and enjoys – without firing a single bullet I might add. Well done Muslims – spill each other’s blood and let the devils watch and dance!! Will we wake before it’s too late?

  3. Sir: I condemn this terrorist attack in Pakistan and any act of terror anywhere in the world for any cause. The Pakistani military routinely issues statements saying the country's armed forces are fully prepared to meet any external and internal threats. So what happened to the preparation? The military and ISI are so intoxicated about their reputation and do not tolerate any complaint or criticism. It would be a good idea to bring the military services completely under the control of the civil government and perhaps that may help enhance the country's security. My condolences and sympathy for the dead and wounded and property loss. Rolland

    • Pakistani politicians – are the most corrupt and treacherous thing that exists jn Pakistan today. Let’s leave the army pure and strong. Independent. And autonomous.

  4. " Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on"

    The community of Karachi need to INSIST on law and order. INSIST on accountability from politicians. Instead of wasting valuable time and energy protesting for a criminal political party head like Altaf every time a cop knocks on his door in London, Karachiites should be DEMANDING action, not words, from their (so called) leaders. Every Karachiite's life depends on it, literally.

  5. Only one solution. Marshal Law! Kick out all politicians who raise there voices for democracy. Actually they all want and wait for their chance to eat this country as much as they can thats y at once they start yelling at each other and the very second day they shake hands and make the citizens fool. My opinion "Kill 'em all". Army zindabad!

  6. VERY SAD DAIL OUR JAWAN SHAHEED TO SAVE US BUT ONE MORE THING OTHER THEN THAT WHO EVER DOING THESE KIND OF TERROR ACTIVITIES WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE REALITY WHICH SAID WE OUR GOVERNMENT OPENED THE GATE FOR THEM STARTING FROM 1980’s OUR LATE PRESIDENT GENERAL ZIA UL HUQUE TILL OUR PRESIDENT GENERAL PERWAIZ MUSHARRAF SO WE INNOCENT NATION AS A PAKISTANI PAYING THE COST IN THE WAY THESE BLOODSHELLS OF THOSE ORDERS……….. MY FRIEND SAID TRUTH ultimately what you reap is what you sow!!

  7. دوستوں، غیر ملکیوں کے درمیان شہری ہلاکتوں میں سے کسی کے کی رپورٹ کے مطابق؟ یا شہری ہلاکتوں میں سے کچھ رشتہ.
