Walid Shoebat

Hizb ut-Tahrir

These clerics have played an ugly role most of the times and their preaching of hate speech always led to more sufferings and disaster for minorities Sadaf Arshad

What is happening in my constituency is very unfortunate and frightening. People are being killed by terrorists on a daily basis. Churches are being burnt, and if people like me who is also a member of the House Committee on Army, alerted military authorities based on intelligence reports that my village would be under attack and nothing was done to secure the area, then it is unfortunate, because the ordinary people that live in volatile areas are no longer safe and protected by our security outfits. Biye Peter Gumtha
