While you write ''True Pakistani'', i doubt. He was not a thieve, a lone courageous voice against Terrorist Talibans. May Allah rest his sole in peace and enemies of Pakistan, Taliban and you in deep hell

It is a very sad incident and biggest loss to Bilour family, ANP and Pukhtuns as well. May Allah accept the shahadat of Bashir Bilour and his companions. ANP and workers of the party have added a golden chapter to Pukhtun,s history by having made greatest sacrifices.

- first of all, neem-na-pakistan is NOT a nation. it is an amalgam of tribes, clans, bradris, religious sects, ethnic grouping . . . and hundreds of smaller groups. second of all, why mourn a thief? there are 180 millions more and alive & kicking. so rejoice.
