Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

Khashoggi, a Saudi Arabian citizen, was murdered by Saudi Arabians, inside a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey, and NY Times' sage Maggie is sore that Trump refused to hurt American businesses to atone for it. For this, she considers herself morally superior to Trump. Bravo!
People who pretend not to understand what Trump is saying in very plain language are the people who would much rather hear sweet, soothing, and politically correct blather than the simple truth simply stated. That's the reason such people loved Obama.…
