Pakistan: Ghazi Brothers and Lal Masjid

Metroblogging Islamabad on the Lal Masjid clerics, and why the mosque is called the “Red Mosque”.


  • Laila Humayun

    These LAL MASJID Brothers and the other terrorists should be given the severest possible punishment. They are all terrorists and calling themselves muslims is an insult to the faith. Hiding behind women and children, and killing innocent people is nothing but terrorism.

  • Laila Humayun

    It is such a sad day today… so many lives wasted. So many of our brave soldiers have died at the hands of a few madmen who believe that its their way or the highway. How can they live or die knowing that they are responsible for the lives of so many innocents….

  • hari

    yes what Laila said is gospel truth. terrorism should be wipe out of the world what ever their faith is because no religion support killing people. we should be able to live with other groups and respect human rights. terrorism is a common problem especially to south Asia
    as Sri Lankans we also had a on going war about 20 years
    because of LTTE terrorists
