A Backwater of Barbarism, Complete with Nuclear Weapons

So much for "the land of the pure". (That is what Pakistan means in Urdu.) Angry mobs drag a man out of his prison cell, beat him up and burn him to death- for, allegedly, burning a copy of the Koran. They also blockade roads so the police cannot get back up. Extra-judicial killings are so common in Pakistan they are no longer considered even newsworthy.
I only worry into whose hands one day their nuclear weapons will fall. It will be a nightmare for the whole world.

This is a good case for Christopher Hitchen's title of his book: god is not great: How religion poisons everything.
