    Lt. Gen Mushtaq Beg was a gem of an officer and a pious human being. May his soul and of all others who lost their lives in this barbaric act rest in eternal peace. (Amen)

    terrorism and terrorists can never be defeated until each and every person in Pakistan plays a role of a soldier in it. Keeping an eye on a suspicious new comer in the neighborhood, suspicious bags and cars at night and looking out for extremist education in the mosques. Until we standup and take responsibility, we will continue to lose our best and brightest innoncent people.

    These terrorists will continue killing as in their view they are going to Jannat. Pakistanis have to realize that either the terrorist will live, or us. We can’t live with terrorism.

    General Mushtaq was Hafiz e quraan and a very fine Doctor. I think he was more pious than any of these people who loot banks to raise money for killingg innocent pious muslims. i think a national jihad is mandatory to extirpate these maniacs.

    People like Imran Khan do not understand that 60 years of mess in Pakistan can not be fixed over night. We all understand Imran khan wants no flexibility and he does not understand that a stick without flexibility breaks and the one bends comes back to original place. USA gives Pakistan Money ever think why? Because they bend for the interest of USA. Imran Khan thinks as a ruler one can refuse all the diplomatic options and do what ruler believes in . He must understand its easy to sit outside and talk and the pressure Musharraf has faced only he knows better. Musharraf is fellow Pakistani and have some respect for him.Use brain for God sake Learn from USA they bend over to anyone for the interest of USA. Nothing wrong with that one should look after the interest of their country.

    The only way to fight these maniacs is to show your resolve and stand firm. Initially they might cause chaos and confusion but if the nation stands firm and does not show any weakness, they will be defeated.

    RIZWAN please don’t waste time in comparing Mush and Imran Khan. Drawing parallels from the film industry, one is a Producer / Director and the other is a good for nothing Critic for a popular magazine.
