Taliban beating the girl mercilessly, click here to see the video
This is shocking and makes me ashamed that this is happening in the same country of which Sindh is also a part. I am angry as hell! These beasts and their supporters have no shame and their hearts are devoid of peaceful teachings of Islam. Beating mercilessly the poor woman on the pretext that “She came out of her house with another guy who was not her husband” is barbaric and it is obvious they do not live in past and are bent upon destruction and treating people with such cruelty.
May Allah punish these beasts if the government lacks the courage to save the wretched country of Pakistan from these barbarians.

I was wondering about what the Punjab is thinking about the latest happenings in lahore where quite a few lives were lost in terrorist activities.
Perhaps busy in having lassi at his farm house in Raiwind. I would be interested in hearing from all the people who lost their sleep when PML-N munda’s brother lost his Punjab government, that after the restoration of Justice Chaudhry and Sharif, what has changed, also how both of people are part of solution? and why are they criminally silent over raging violence that is threatening the very fabric of social order in Pakistan.

Me, my family and 2 guests have just watched the video clippings on GEO TV in which three mullahs are beating and slashing a 17 years pashtoon girl in general public, she was awarded this punishment by shareeat court of SAWAT for alleged involvement in some minor non-cognizable crime.
After seeing her agony, helplessness, humiliation and hearing her painful cries almost everybody has tears in eyes, we have asked kids to leave the room. She is encircled by Taliban rulers of swat and a crowd of more than 2000 locals and no one dares to stop those terrorist Mullas. we are shocked.
