    Malala is a Robot designed by Intel and Microsoft, fuelled by starbucks coffee to defame pakistan.Recommend

  • Nandita.

    This is a bit off topic but had to say this :
    I read ‘I am Malala’ and I’m in awe of that child. Such bravery displayed by someone so young!!!.She is a courageous girl born to a great man..Certain sections of the book moved me to tears, her detractors ought to read the account
    Of her life-that would dispel all the conspiracy theories.. Or maybe that’s too much to ask for huh?

    One day we will be free of the HinJew conspiracy that keeps threatening Islam and Pakistan. Then the Muslim Ummah will expand their headquarters to the moon and beyond, IA/MA/AH/TC/BBM.Recommend

  • Saqib Saleem

    I don’t know why malala is so important for the fate of Pakistan. There are many other issues in society that need to be addressed. Malala is just a face mask wear by west to hide its bloody face coloured with the blood of thousands of innocent children in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other parts of world.Recommend

  • Syed Murtaza Shah

    Hard work done probably by a leftest from PPP giving themselves a clean chit (Corruption, incompetence, destroying national institutions etc not big issues), silently criticizing rather naming PTI as narrow minded but at the same time admitting that majority of Pakistanis are not with them. Extremely unfortunate, why are we searching our identity in western values and norms????Recommend

  • raj

    Very nice but extremely generalized article as far as title is concerned. It should be something like A guy’s opinion not Pakistan’s responseRecommend

  • Indocanuck

    why are you wearing a business suit? shouldn’t an ethnic arab dress be more your style? Since you identify and draw inspiration from the Arabian peninsula ?
    :) Jus sayinRecommend

  • Zee

    These so called liberals should move to Pakistan. Why the don’t shed views on IamMalala where she spoke on Salman Rushdie. She is the shame to Pakistan.
    @author. Why don’t you respect average pakistani opinion rather bashing them. Shame on you.
    ET moderator. Allow my comment without editingRecommend

  • Shahid

    Malala might be brave which she really is but is she intellectual? the answer is no, Its all Malala Daddy Falcon’s failed political ambitions. Just to see how ‘intellectual’ Malala is, see her interview with Jon Stewart, where he asks some question around 11:00ish and she starts repeating herself like a parrot without knowing the question. Same videos are available on Youtube before she was attached, where she’s being interviewed by some foreign journalist and she’s answering like a parrot and where she forgets the answer, she looks at Daddy Falcon and he tells her where to say.

    Once again it is pro-jihads vs liberal fascists fight and common man is confused who’s right and wrong.Recommend

    It’s a blog – got nothing to do with news. Just sayin’.Recommend

    Typical Indian comment as if your text books are all truthful.Recommend

  • Syed Murtaza Shah

    Brother business suit is not the property of west nor are we bound to follow Arabian culture. Pakistan has a very rich and fine culture and we dont need to borrow from others. Yes, we are bound in a common faith with the Arabs but that is something very different from culture.Recommend

  • nishantsirohi123

    they are…we do not have “anti-religious” sentiments or biased description of “certain communities”
    we are taught the significance of every religious festival
    and do not have laws that prevent anyone from getting appointed to a post just because of their religion, sect or caste.
    K.R. Narayanan is a dalit/shudra and was the president of India

    we embrace Akbar and Darashikoh
    you can gladly embrace the atrocities caused by Muhammad bin qasim and AurangzebRecommend

    the prevailing reality is not a clicheRecommend

    she has highlighted one issue. thats women education. it has to start from somewhereRecommend

  • Solomon2

    Brilliant. Counter every one of the harebrained retorts and you’ll go a long way to asserting sanity in your country.Recommend

  • Talha Rizvi

    wow Muhammad bin qasim caused atrocities? I guess the people of Sindh who greatly appreciated him must be blind then! By the way if you like Akbar so much then why the out roar over the movie about his wife. recently a series started in India which shows him as a religiously fanatic barbarian. Not only that in each historical series muslims are depicted as barbarians.Recommend

  • Saqib Saleem

    Our education isn’t west problem, its our problem. And by the way what the hell 180 million people are doing in Pakistan, that there’s no one that even think about education. Problem isn’t education it’s our attitude towards education and the education system. Our education revolve around just being a doctor or engineer otherwise there’s no need of being educated. We want education just for money. Actually we have given education boundaries either it’s the boundaries of madrissa, school or university or the boundries of certain prescribed books. :)Recommend

    well calling your missiles gauri and abdali

    Clearly, you haven’t read the book. Scroll down this article and you’ll see for yourself. Jeeeezzzz


  • justwondering

    which is what the history and the present tells us. Maybe not all, but there is plenty of evidence for a it is a crude religion….Recommend

  • Talha Rizvi

    The religion whose followers start a riot in Madhya Pradesh over a dead cow where archaeologists start a dig on the dreams of some sadhu can’t be called as advance.Recommend

  • Talha Rizvi

    What about venerating Shiva ji a notorious thug and murderer. Do you know statistically Hindus suffered the most from his raids as they formed the majority in villages who his bandits looted with great ferocity?Recommend

  • gp65

    That was a low even for you. We do not define Islam based on actions of its followers e.g. shooting polio workers, shooting people of different sects, killing girls in school girs in school buses, killing people at mosques, preventing people from doing Eid Namaz because they happen to be Ahmadis. All these acts are shameful but not a refelction on Islam – rather just something the followers are guilty of.

    I am hoping that people of a religion who make such a big deal about blasphemy can be a little more careful when referring to other faiths.

    By the way unlike you, I do not think you deserve to die because you were rude about Hinduism or for that matter, anything bad hapen to you either. But I do think that what you said was pretty pathetic.Recommend

  • Talha Rizvi

    What you and the other Indians say on this site is pathetic and the worst form of trolling. Didn’t you see what I said was in response? It’s amazing you Indians say the most filth about Islam. One called Islam as a cult. Others like Darbullah , Raj-USA called Eid-ul-azha barbaric not a day goes by that you Indians say the most rubbish about Islam. By the way your intentions about wishing me death is called a Freudian slip. You have just revealed your own thinking. By the way where did I insult Hinduism? Are all these incidents made up or do you live in some alternate universe where India is perfect? By the way it is indeed pathetic that you Indians come here to laugh at others miseries( many have openly admitted it) yet claim higher ground and always defend each others by ganging up. Your behavior on this site is indeed disgusting and speaks volume of your true intentions.
    ET mods please publish a rebuttal.Recommend
