 let the citizens of this free nation not forget that this same Mufti was the kingpin to get his daughter released and let go the fanatic terror king, now with one party next with another to have his game of separatism going on.

  Let us be honest and stop the blame game of Kandahar hijack, when system of governance did err in releasing the terrorists to save the life of 160 innocent fliers in that aircraft, whereas the game of blame is going on this madam embraced this Mufti instead of law taking its vourse of action as his daughter got married and setteled in Islamic nation of UAE. !
