Terrorism in Pakistan.

For all recent terrorist activities, India must be asked in strong and firm words to stop these terrorist activities. We might have to fight a war on terrorism with India. With India, I hold Mr Nawaz Sharif for taking his revenge. I would not be surprised if one day it is found out that Mr. Nawaz Sharif is a partner with India in war on terror on Pakistan. please note my words for record.
