  1. @author. It was not Friday but Thursday night. This is once againt a target to ignite sectarian violence in the country by the terrorist. Pakistanis condemn it and I cry tears of sorrow on the death toll.

  2. Lahore is under attack once again as the terrorist struck DATA Darbar, now one would want to know what possible grievances the Taliban could hold against a Sufi shrine.
    The answer is none, the aim is to create chaos among the masses and deter our commitment to fight extremism. As we shy away from admitting their presence in Punjab they are growing stronger day by day. It is time to act before it’s too late

  3. First of All Taliban as yet not holding any responsibility moreover Islamic Militants are not against Sufi or any Wali Allah — the OBJECTIONABLE Acts are as followed which is fallen in the category of Bidat, Shirk or any close Traditional Value which is near to Hindus not with Islam.

    *Zahad-o-Taqwa = Piety
    *Thup = Closed or Shut Down
    *Mawali-o-Charsi = Criminal Offender found at usually Shrines - Drug Addicts
    *Mutwalli-e-Khanqha = An Administrator who Collects Money Millions of Rupees.

    Iss Kamil ———- Din-e-Islam Ko Kiya Say Kiya Rung Day-Diya-
    *Mutwalli-e-Khanqha Ka KAROBAR Bhee *Thup Kurkay Rukh Diya-
    Darkar Tha *Zahad-o-Taqwa- *Mawali-o-Charsi Nay Yeh Kiya Bana Diya-

  4. Why blame Tom, Dick and Harry, the fact of matter is that our entire political brass is responsible for prevailing situation in Pakistan. Unfortunately, today our politicians are fighting to protect each other from corruption cases, fake degree charges, money embezzlement, etc.

    I came across this beautiful hadith and would like to share it with you all:

    Abu Hurairah, radiyallahu ‘anhu, reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said:

    “Do not be envious of one another; do not artificially inflate prices against one another; do not hate one another; do not shun one another; and do not undercut one another in business transactions; and be as fellow-brothers and servants of Allah.

    A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He neither oppresses him nor humiliates him nor looks down upon him. Piety is here - and he pointed to his chest three times. It is evil enough for a Muslim to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. All things of a Muslim are inviolable for another Muslim: his blood, his property and his honour.”

  5. Peace plays a basic role in stabilizing a country in all fields of life like political stability, financial stability etc. Pakistan’s enemies headed by India can’t afford to see peace & any sort of stability here arising from it. Hazrat Ali Hajvery the saint passed away from this world long ago. May his grave be a heaven for him. But these actions don’t give the saint any relief or tension. Its just trying to destabilize Pakistan in all fields of life. May Almighty Allah further take Hazrat Ali Hajvery Up in the Heaven & destroy the group of bandits totally trying to destroy peace in Pakistan & across the globe.

  6. Pakistan: The crisis of Punjab — Guardian Editorial

    No one in Pakistan, let alone Nawaz Sharif, who hopes one day to return to national power, can tolerate a policy of accommodating jihadis, or keep them as backroom allies in the mistaken belief that this is the best way of containing them. After the last two attacks, his brother Shahbaz cannot claim to have the situation under control in the Punjab. It is not and it needs a concerted police and intelligence operation (the army, too, needs to get off the fence) against all jihadis to settle the point of who runs the country’s most populous province.


  7. Killing may that be at a national sacred place like Daata darbar or in any mosque or in the market; it may be at any police check post or at military installation; everywhere a Pakistani blood is spilled.

    Irony is that these perpetrators are living among us, and we are failed to recognise them—- rather there is more to it; that we may be knowing them ——-where they perch but are so fearful that hesitates to name and shame them.

    This is strange; very strange that thousands of people have been killed; but not a single person has since been hanged.

  8. @8 A Khokar

    Agree with you.

    We are shamefully coward, we lack courage and guts to come forward and name those who are the ‘puppeteers’ of all these acts of terrorism and violence against our people. Tell you what, the moment some of these gangsters are picked up a lot of us would be screaming ‘foul’ and blame victimization of ‘religious people’ —– problem is all such actors happen to be so called ‘religious’ people. In the name of whaever they consider ‘religion’ they wish to take away my right to practice my religion freely as I understand and accept for myself —— strictly for myself.
