Zaid Hamid is one of the strongest voices around against Terrorism. God bless him and grant him a long and healthy life.
All overseas Pakistanis are grieved over the terrorism unleashed by the Talibans in the name of Islam and fighting our Muslim forces. These extremists are indulging in unwanton killings of innocent people, cutting throats of those who oppose them, blowing up girls' schools, closing down barber shops, dismantling Video and CD shops, flogging women without trial, suicide bombings, blowing hotels, waging war against the established government, promoting extremism,backwardness,Mullahism to take us back to stone age etc. All these ills have been discussed in the attached article and a solution has been suggested that being an Islamic state all religious matters, Madressahs, Mosques shoudl be the sole responsibility of the state as in Saudi Arabia and other Arab states and Iran to save Islam from exploitation, deviation, groupings, sectarianism, Maslak and Fiqah differences etc.and to promote peace and unity on the religious front. All religious parties should be banned to prevent politicisation of Islam which is creating discord and disunity of the nation. We should all be serious to save Pakistan from the bloodshed let loose by the illiterate and Changez type Talibans who are tarnishing the image of our glorious religion, Islam and ask the government to take bold and timely action as suggested above.
