The target killers are not human. Whatever their philosophy is, is not humanitarian. Their philosophy just defame Islam.

religion is meant for peace and confidence. thats it...let not religion take over us

Someone aptly said we have become a senseless nation. All our 60 odd years of existence was a journey that was filled with hatred towards India, Jews and the Western nations. Our behavior and actions were molded by politicians, mullahs and Imams. We have betrayed ourselves in that journey. The journey has not ended so far. So, how do you expect us to become more civil now?

Much grieved, there is the need to address root causes of extremism, should have an international conference over sectarian violence and religion and the need of time. Mazharuddin

For God sake will some one stop this senseless killings. So many innocent persons are dying every day did any one realized what is going in there families who will support them one day when the kids grow up they will also become the same to avenge the unnecessary bloodshed.
