how taliban can not do these activities without any local support.. jamat e islami giving them that harboring terrorists .. govt should have to get them and purge them from our homeland ..

What you do to others, it comes around. MQM is a terrorist party which itself started all the target killings, extortions & criminal activities, this party should be banned in the upcoming elections by ECP.

Until Dec 31, Imran blamed terrorism problems on US Drone attacks. Now in 2013, Imran says it is an internal matter of Pakistan and the nation needs a multi-pronged strategy to root out terrorism from the nation.

Yes open enemies or out in the open, PLEASE CATCH THEM, CONVICT THEM, EXECUTE THEM. Just do something to protect innocent citizens from these OPEN ENEMIES. It has gone on for a very long time now. Someone in this DEMOCRATIC government must know about these OPEN EMEMIES.

Altaf Hussain and all Haq Parast condemns the terrorist incident and says the people targeting the nation are open enemies of Pakistan.
