@noor.United Kingdom. It was Rimond Davis who killed two persons and not the motor bikes riders. Why and what for the killer had to be extricated from the country where he was required to face the law for brutal killings.

The enemies of Pakistan have intensified their efforts to destabilize the country through the acts of terrorism and subversion. The nation should stand united and be brave to face the cowards.
