We can not close our eyes and ears, let us face the fact, Pakistan was a breeding ground for religious fanatics and has thousands of madarsa’s ( including Lal Masjid, there were training camps in our country and several religious leaders openly speak in favor of suicide bombers. Several terrorists arrested in the world belong to Pakistan. We blame every country in the world but ourselves. We argue that we were used by U.S and U.K then we must be stupid enough to play in their hands .There is no country in the world that welcomes a Pakistani passport and that includes Islamic countries.

There are two types of people commenting here, as was the case in the show itself.

The brainwashed islamists/jihadists who have one way or the other that jihadist mentality thanks to the 20-30 years of brainwashing by our establishment,madrassas and religious political partie.And as you would appreciate two of them (madrassas and religious political parties) were present right from 47, and establishment joined them and reinforced them and supported them and expanded them and fed them and bread them during zia era. All the commenters belonging to that group are supporting zaid hamid. This group despite knowing Zaid Hamid’s jamiat past + yousaf kazzab past will never oppose him because what he says feel to these people like drugs to a drug addict. Zaid Hamid is operating from Chaklala and is a mouth piece of ISI/Army, but people like SHARsoori will enjoy taking this drug of BS (a collection of 2nd class conspiracry theories circulate usually by jamaatees in Univerities ) said by Zaid Hamid. So these people will talk about the oppresors in palestine and kashmir and afghanistan but when it comes to the atrocities committed by taliban/jamiat/zaid hamid/ ISI/Army they wont talk, even if these atrocities are against our own people in North and South Waziristan, Bajaur, Darra , or Swat. They are mum on such occasions. They cant see these atrocities. They just cant ………….

Then their is this second group of people who are liberal. They support democracy, open media, western values. They can see atrocities by Taliban/ARMY/ISI quite clearly.

Mr. SHARsoori would not mind slaughtering me but would be quick enough to point out any one killed by west/israel/india.

Mr. Zaid Hamid’s history is on and you can visit it SHARsoori. Also read his email interaction with admin of that site to fully know him, although i know you know everything about him but right now your head is in deep sand, Mr. Shutarmoori ……..

This is not america’s war.

What is an arab, a chechen and an uzbek doing in my land ? What right does he have to tell me what to do and what not to do. His AK 47 does not give him the right to instruct me how to live my life.

They are ruling me on my land, killing my elders to create vaccum and fear, kiling them in their homes, hujras, mosques.

So whose war is this, this is My War. And why is PPPP bad ? I have not voted for them but majority of the people in my constituency elected them and so i accept them. My brethern ares not decapitated by PPPP jialas, they are decapitated by people like Fazlullah,Baitullah Mehsud, Maulvi Nazir, Aiman Azzawahri, all the Arabs and jihadists who were given places to hide by ISI/Army.
Even they are humiliating the corpses of our dead brethern.The dead body of a policeman in swat, slaughtered by your beloved jihadists, hanging from an electric pole will never be forgotten.

I had not felt it when the Hazaras were slaughtered by Talibans, when Dr. Najib’s corpse was hanging in Kabul for three days, but now i am much better placed to differentiate Animals from Humans.

The saying goes “the most corrupt democracy is better than dictatorship or Animal Rule”.
