This is terrible beyond words. We knew bigotry like this was circulating just below the surface in society, but with social media reporting it so decisively like this…An ugly situation flung on our faces. We wish the nurses a speedy recovery and they need to ransack that hospital for the scum who did this.

Some Over-Reactions Are Truly Lol-Worthy.
There’s anger. And then there’s a downright meltdown; where far, far left academia, justifies inadvertent sympathy with some of the worst systems in the Muslim world. Hi-larious.

Let’s go by it line by line, it’s always more fun that way. wow nice showing your elitism and making fun of my language What elitism? That I can arrange an argument in English by the language’s own rules? The fact is that if you can’t control your own language, how much less control do you possess over your argument? If you can’t think through your sentences, then...

Calling Out The Saudi Government AND Their People →
Hello cynicalapathy. I read your run-on sentence there, and I would like to add my comments please. In one non-punctuated go you said, “Ignorance is thinking it is ok to blame people in a fucking dictatorship and hold them responsible for the acts of their fucking government who is by the way a fucking absolute monarchy where the king is appointed by inheritance NOT by any choice or...
I Say That Saudi Arabia Is Horrible →
The influence of Saudi Arabia inside Pakistan continues to remain Poisonous. mehreenkasana: Apparently calling the Saudi regime out for ruining other countries (in this case: Pakistan being a fine example), exporting sectarian violence into Pakistan through religious extremism, telling university chairmenwhom to invite and whom not to (because that Iranian ambassador is so evil, KSA), conducting...
They did this in Middle Ages Europe as well. Order people who were too close to power to leave for pilgrimmage to either Rome, or more dangerously, Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Very convenient way to get rid of royal relatives who were becoming too powerful. Coming back to your Mughal example; the boy-emperor Akbar the Great, once he reached the age of adulthood, ordered his former guardian, and...

Greatest Thrash Ballad, EVAR!!! →
The Emperor Humayun got run out of his own kingdom by the conqueror Sher Shah Suri, who was so competent that unlike the Mughals, he built a piece of infrastructure, the Grand Trunk Road, that survives and is used to this day.

I won`t impugn on other people criticising Pakistani nationalism, but using words like haram is crossing the line. Other people, especially Muslims, criticising Pakistani nationalism is satirical, considering that Pakistan is ahead of all Arab countries and Iran in it`s internal democratic organisation. Ideologues from there have no right in either criticising the joy a Pakistani takes in his or...

Yes! Very Great… mehreenkasana: I see all these posts with “Create Beautiful Children, Marry a Desi”, “Create Beautiful Children, Marry an Arab”, “Create Beautiful Children, Marry an Afghan”, “Create Beautiful Children, Marry a Persian”, etc. They’re great. But. Hear my suggestion out and consider it. Create annoying jackass kids. Marry me.
The paper that made the internet →
Oh Yes… joethought: Vint Cerf is one of the privileged few computer scientists who can claim to have helped change the course of history. His pioneering work with Robert Kahn led to the development of the TCP/IP networking protocols, which would underpin the Internet.
