Pakistan, the place where the cradle of civilization of Indus Valley, now parted away from India and it's rich history, is now being the cradle of TERRORISM, why, why, why?
Why do so many die only here because of terrorism? Why?
Who is responsible? Army? Government? Civilians? ISI?

I may not have the answer. But all those souls rest in peace!
