Hate mail on Editorial pages of Pakistani Daily.

You would hope that a nation’s national daily would have some intelligent stuff on the editorial page – like the "Letters to Editor" section. I was amused and surprised when I saw this letter in "The Nation", one of Pakistan’s national daily. I have been reading Pakistani newspapers for lot of years but even I was taken aback.

Read it carefully.. the guy just makes some statements.. and that’s it! No conclusion.. no rationale. Even if I take his statements to be 100% correct… the question you have is.. and sooo? Unless the editor has opened up this daily for an Open Source Jehadi media outlet.. I dont see how this letter could be published? It is just plain hate mail!

The British have always hurt the interests and feelings of the Muslims. They broke up the Ottoman Empire, colonized the Arabs, carved out Kuwait from Iraq, and then created Israel through the Balfoure Declaration in 1917 due to which the Palestinians are suffering for more than fifty years now. Then British cheated the Muslims of India in partition by favouring India rather than Pakistan. The British are an enemy of Islam and Muslims everywhere. Z. ISRAR, Karachi, via e-mail, June 20.
