West’s Reaction to Paris Attacks; Gen Raheel Sharif in US; Modi’s World Tour

Will West’s reaction to Paris attacks weaken or strengthen ISIS and other Middle East terror groups? Should Muslim refugees coming to Europe and US be punished for such attacks? Will it make the Syrian refugee crisis much worse? How will further alienation of already marginalized Muslims in France affect security in Europe?

Why is General Raheel Sharif in Washington? Do such visits weaken Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s government? Are there any implications for the future civil-military ties in Pakistan?

What does the Badin sweep of Zulfiqar Mirza’s anti-PPP candidates in local elections mean for Sindh politics? Is it a reflection of the power of local feudal electoral politics in Pakistan?

Why has Narendra Modi chosen to focus on foreign relations with 30 foreign visits in just over a year since he became Prime Minister of India? Is it all about photo ops and PR to project himself as a world leader? Can India really become a significant global power with its poorly educated and unhealthy labor force? Shouldn’t Modi pay more attention to India’s serious social, economic and development issues at home?

Viewpoint From Overseas host Misbah Azam discusses these questions with Ali H. Cemendtaur and Riaz Haq (

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown: White Men Are The Biggest #Terrorist Threat To The #US, Not #Muslims. #ParisAttacks …

Muslims and other Middle Eastern people have been falsely branded as terrorists by many, but on Thursday, Sen. Sherrod Brown reminded millions of Americans that most acts of terrorism in the country were carried out by white men and not by Arabs or Muslims.

Brown said that “generally white males” are to blame for many terrorist attacks since September 11, 2001. He cited several incidents of mass shootings in public places in broad daylight and called them “terrorist attacks,” but the only difference is that they were carried out by “different kinds of terrorists.”

“I think most of us recognize, we’re concerned but we also know that we trust the FBI and our security forces to do this right. I mean, since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11th, we’ve not had any major terrorist attacks in this country,” Brown said, adding that the country has been relatively safe from foreign terrorists.

RK: "But pakis show interest in dadri more."

First, two wrongs don't make a right.

Second, an important difference: Unlike India, no ruling party politician in Pakistan has defended or justified such hateful attacks. In fact, Pakistan has swiftly condemned the attack on Ahmadis and police have arrested 80 suspects quickly.

So now the white men who allowed you Islamists into their country and allowed full religious freedom that is not available in any Muslim country, they are the terrorists?

After every Islamic terror attack, you Islamist fanatics get worried over retaliation but as nothing happens, you take that as the weakness of kaafirs who are fololish and stupid and you can apply your Islamic taqiyya on them.

Let's see how long this charade goes. May be Trump and Le Pen and others will win (it is inevitable and only a matter of time) and do what needs to be done. The world can't be foolish always and play dhimmis.

The Islamist fanatics will never be satisfied with anything the kaffirs and Mushriks do, even if they become full dhimmis in their own country. There is only one way to deal with them.

You, a Hindu Nationalist bigot, a Modi toady, should ask Ohio Sen Sherrod Brown, a US war veteran, this question. Is he referring to "the white men who allowed you Islamists" into the US? Or the white men mass shooters who regularly kill large numbers of Americans?

Here are some links for ignorant bigoted Hindus like you to learn something about the death toll in mass shootings in America:
