This is fantastic.
I’ve also been really encouraged to see the reaction of average Pakistanis to the attempted assassination. Moderate Muslims DO speak out about the extremists.
They need to do more- to organize and insist on fair elections, human rights and removing all traces Taliban and Al Quada. This kind of stuff has been happening a long time.
Well, of course they need to do more. But then, so does your country (and mine.)
The fact is that people in traditionally extremist Muslim countries are doing something. Even their fourteen-year-olds are doing stuff, risking their lives in the process. This stuff has been happening a long time and it’s going to take a long time to end.
