Shame on you Taliban,very bad.

Mr. Hamid Mir is one of the foremost supporter of better India - Pak relations . He is also against all form of terrorism activities and knows that terrorism is only destroying pakistan, not other countries. Mr. Mir is also pro-democracy and also regularly spoke against army establishments.People of Pakistan should pray for Mr. Hamid Mir for his true nationalistic views.I pray to Almighty God for his long life so that he may contribute for better relations between the both countries.

There are 18 crores hamid mirs in our beloved country. you will not and cannot finish each one of them - ALLAHU AKBAR. Master minds please open your eyes and see what the history has done to you. If you do not learn be sure we are all doomed to destroy with every thing around us.

Dear Hamid mir, Allah aap ko apni hifazat main rakhay. Such owr haq ki awaz buland kartay roho. Zindgi owr mowt Allah k hath main hay. Hamaray piyaray Nabi saw nay farmaya: Agar sari dunya mil kar tumhain koi nuqsan puhchana chahay owr Allah tumahain us nuqsan say bachana chahay to poori dunya mil kar bhi tumhara kuch nahin bigar sakti.

Nobody's life is safe in Zardari Nagar where there is corruption, despondency, incompetency, greed and the list goes on. What Zardari's right hand man Mr Rehman Malik has to say about this incidence which shows nothing but this government's hopeless inability to provide basic security to Pakistani people.
