    ( the founders of Pakistan had from Islam ).

    1-they expected that the scientific knowledge in Quran will make Pakistan a leading nation in science and technology. had they read Quran in a language that they could understand they would have found out for themselves that Quran has only pseudo-science. all the information in Quran was copied from the ancient books whose writers’ knowledge was based on assumtion, not on observation or experiments.

    2-teachings of Islam will build the character of the nation. it never happened. no Islamic country has any national character at all. how can religion build character when it was designed to destroy your humanity in the first place.

    3-islamic armies of Pakistan and the Islamic world will rule the world. that too is still a dream because they all buy their weapons from the west.

    4-pakistan and Islamic countries will be safe sanctuaries for Muslims. the fact is that Muslims in Pakistan and other Islamic states are desperate to emigrate to the west, because their lives, their honour and their properties are not safe in their own countries.

    5-the world will look up to Pakistan and other Islamic states as a role models for knowledge, science, technology, discipline, and organisation.

    The fact is when people want to see the horror movie they do not go to the movie theatre anymore. they simply switch on the CNN and BBC and watch live news of mass murders and mass rapes unfolding right before their eyes in Islamic countries. Hollywood may go out of business because of them.

    I’ve only read two of your blogs – (“When in America, do as the Americans don’t” and “Thoughts on Moving Back to Pakistan”) and I just want to say I really like the way you write, but more than that I love what you write. As a Pakistani living abroad just like yourself I feel you very eloquently put into words the thoughts often running through my mind.
    Just want to say, best of luck with your endeavors. Keep writing so people like me can keep reading x
