    I would bet if you asked a cross section of our young who Mohammad Ali Bogra was and gave them two choices — sportsman or politician — most will probably guess he was a sportsman rather than a Prime Minister of the country!

    And I bet if you asked a cross section of anyone who knows who Mohammad Ali Bogra was and asked them to name two things he did for Pakistan will not be able to name one!

    And I will also bet that if you asked a cross section of youth of most countries of the world and asked them of some of their past leaders (may be even present) will not be able to name them either.

    I just wanted to add one thing regarding what Mr Shivam said. He like may other indians think that India and MANY MORE Muslims than Pakistan. One reason for the same is to show how great india is. Well I do agree that India is a huge and a beautiful country and I really like Indians (I personally know many) who are very nice people. However I just wanted to say that Pop of Muslims in India and Pak is nearly the same and if u wanna go in details then u may be surprised to know that Pak has little MORE Muslims then India:

    As per the official website of Indian census, Pop of India as of March 2008 was 1148M out of which 13.4% were muslims thus Muslims in India are at 153.832 Million

    While as per the PAKISTANI POPULATION WEBSITE (Official) pop of Pak is 163 Million of which 96.28% are muslims thus the total number of Muslims in Pakistan comes out to be 156.964M. Hence the total difference in favor of Pak is: 3.104M which can increase further if Pak kashmir is included which has further 5 million muslims.

    Please dont get offended i am not malaigning india but i am tired of some indians singing all the time that “We have more Muslims then u guys” as a measure of My country is better than yours like KG childeren

    U can check the sources from:
    http://www.censusindia.gov.in and go to projected populations
    http://www.statpak.gov.pk/depts/pco/
    plus even wikipedia shows pakistan as the 2nd largest muslim pop in the world with evidences.

  3. Roshan I didn’t know about that movie’s actual message as never tried to watch new pakistani movies but if you compare it with Indian movies and programs,its like Atay me namak se bhe kam.


    The bottom line is that its now time to think with different mindset. Both the nations have suffered a lot and we should move towards Peace and its the only way we can progress in this competitive World.

    Sorry Roshan Its not just our duty to think and otherside keep declaring us terrorist.I do favor friendship but not one-sided.You can’t be my friend unless you show me some positive sign otherwise you will call me “Chipku”,A pushy person.When there common citizen is being bitter with us then why on earth should we dream to be friends?

    @ Adnan
    “How many times did we make movies against India”
    I saw one movie “Tere Piyar Mein” (zara sheikh & shaan), which gives the same message as some indian movies give.

    There is a wonderful article by Amartya Sen “Finding our common ground” which was published in The Newstatesman http://www.newstatesman.com/nssubsfilter.php3?newT emplate=NSArticle_NS&newDisplayURN=200607310036 but this article is also published by The News in two parts: http://www.thenews.com.pk/daily_detail.asp?id=1977 4
    He threw some light in the grey area where people are more concerned about their identities and ignoring other important features of civilization:
    “civilisational classifiers have often pigeonholed India as a “Hindu civilisationâ€
