    There is a need to protect our nation, but alas those who call themselves our leaders or heads in Quetta city, show apathy even to meet those poor martyred families, rather than helping or organizing a force against them as the Gov, has been failed to protect us, or to pressurize the Gov.

    How many EARS must one person have..! before he can hear people CRY?
    And how many DEATHS will it take till he knows that too many people have DIED ?
    And how many YEARS can some people exist before they are allowed to be FREE?
    And how many TIMES can a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn’t SEE?
    The ANSWER….my friend, is BLOWING in the wind,the answer is blowing in the WIND.

    After Abbottabad US operation killing Osama Bin Laden taday its second attempt of terrorism against innocent Hazara’s martyred 7 by Al Qaeda /Taliban backed baned extremist organization Lashker e Jhangwi. We condemn these acts of terrorism and once again after Hazara Town Incident in which 7 Hazara’s were martyred urge Pakistan govt as well as military establishment to ensure our security. We believe that these sort of terrorist acts will open the way for Nato forces lead by US to act in our territory against Taliban’s QUETTA SHURA present in Quetta.
