    India should take note of all this-opening its borders to Pakistan would allow pakistanis to export their terrorism into India on a scale they have not experienced before.The  wahabi influenced govt has not been able to protect its citizens internally,left right and centre the peaceful muslim minorities and hindus have  brutally been murdered and subjected to other atrocities too painful to describe-and all that you get from malik is he has formed a committee/team to investigate.Just recently the terrorists were inches away from snatching the nuclear arsenal from the air base,which could have been used to attack India.Who would you than blame?Whether it is zardari.gilani,malik,chaudry,they are not honourable people,they are the slaves of wahabi heretic abdulla who is responsible for the sectarian violence.
