    After watching what we ‘Pakistanis’ did to two brothers in Sialkot, I understood the rationale behind this flood.I fact I think Allah is extremely merciful and forgiving.this flood is nothing.What we deserve is total annihilation.Why???coz we can no longer be counted among human race.we r just a big blob of trash which should be wiped off of the face of earth.I felt thoroughly ashamed of my nationality after watching the video of street justice being handed out in Sialkot.SHAME ON PAKISTANIS.SHAME ON ALL OF US

    This nation deserves wrath of ALLAH, seriously, what happened last week in Sialkot, i am afraid mighty Allah will send far much bigger and worst disasters to this country.

    Nice sentiments, although little poetic credit.
