As mentioned in my previous post asking America to stop financial aid to pakistan is one of the possibilities...Also if america withdraws troops from pakistan,it will become very difficult for pakistan to control the terrorist fighting...resulting in massive casualties and nobody can stop pakistan from becoming the next syria or libya or iraq.....Let them fight and kill each other........India should give the bases to America in Indian territory to combat China...This way America will automatically become an Indian ally against china and pakistan...It should be however ensured that Russia remains a friend forever..... more  
MEMORIZING THE CALL FOR STRINGENT BAN OF MARITAL RAPE , LET US VIGILANTLY ASSESS THEIR ATTITUDE IN THE FAMILY LIFE-LEAD IN INDIA THAT STARTED STRUGGLES BETWEEN FEMALE AND MALE . NEED TO BE IN SCIENTIFIC , SYSTAMATIC , SITUATIONAL WITHOUT SETTING OFF THE OBJECT ORIENTATION. more  
Pressurise America to stop the aid to Pakistanis...Once the financial aid is stopped,Pakistan cannot survive more than 5 yrs and soon will become like libya and syria.....America needs India to counter china and India needs America to counter Pakistan........SImple as that more  
SEE HOW EASY AND SAFE IS THE SUPPORTISM IN THE SHADOW OF SELFISH HUMANITY THAT CAN NEVER STOP OR REDUCE AND RATHER STIMULATES TERRORISM LIKE THE THEN IN SOUTHERN AND NOW ISIS IN WEST NORTH EAST . more  
Our brave people have caught one Pakistani terrorist "Naveed"...Now our trials will continue for another 15-20 yrs.....Then there will be people who will try to free him...Another group of people will claim he is innocent...Another group of people will come out with some conspiracy theories.....Another group of people will support him saying that he is young......And so on......In the mean time 1000 more terrorists will be born with the encouragement our so called seculars are prividing to them...

Hang him in the next 2 years so that it is a lesson to the future terrorists...
