The world has lost a true hero. Nelson Mandela dead at 95.

It is sad to write that the world has lost a true hero who taught us how to counter tyranny with patience and strength of character. Nelson Mandela is dead and we all will remember the great leader with great respect.

He is surely the most iconic political figure of current times and was someone who not only touched the lives of fellow South Africans but also became a hope for people living all over the world.

It is interesting that the same people who are now waging wars on smaller countries in the name of spreading civilization, also used to call him a terrorist. He was on USA terror watch list along with other leader’s of Mandela’s African National Congress (ANC) were on USA terror watch list. Mandela was also a great supporter of Palestine and opposed the apartheid system created by Israeli authorities.

We salute the great struggle of Mandela and hope the world will see more like him.

Minorities Minister Shahbaz Bhatti Assassinated

Strongly condemn this act of brutality. This is madness and what else can a person expect in a war mode. This war really sucks , it has broken the already weak social fabric and is destroying all values. Pakistan seriously needs to revise its policies in this war and come out of it. This is destroying our country and we are in a real self destruction mode.
