The terror in our midst

The United States has recently put pressure on Pakistan for its selective treatment of militants, but the recent attacks in Norway by a Christian fundamentalist highlight the failure of Western governments to holistically deal with domestic extremism.

Where is the end. In my opinion the main job of “The Muslim Times” is to give a real picture of the things to its readers. We must follow the example of Hazrat khalifatul Masih 4th (ra).

Is there any international forum left, which can claim to be providing justice.

The question sort of provides an excuse for doing what he did (may be unintentionally, but that is an impression that it could create). There is absolutely no circumstances that can provide an excuse for murder and terror of innocent persons. The guy was/is educated. He could have launched a political party or supported a political party openly with his views… (just a thought – not quite complete…)
