Let me make one thing clear

Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech

Submitted by Mohammed Saleem Akhtar (United States), Sep 29, 2005 at 18:54

Pakistani society, in general, have nothing against the Jewish people (hate is just too strong and wrong a word). Pakistan's #1 sports superstar even married a Jewish woman from the UK and the marriage was publicized like nothing else in the history of Pakistan. The marriage was acccording to combined muslim and jewish traditions. She remained Jewish. Above all, she lived with Imran, in Pakistan, for almost 10 years or so. They separated recently due to family reasons but are still great friends.

Pakistani society is the most pro-Jewish islamic society in the entire world. I born and raised in Pakistan am a testimony to this fact. Since my childhood I was told that Jewish people are the God's chosen people. Never in my entire life had I come across a single anti-Jewish comment from a Pakistani. This is my personal experience and not cut and paste from a biased, hate-filled website.

I am not telling a fairy tale but my own personal truth living in Karachi for 30 years or so. Infact I am willing to bet my bottom rupee on the fact that there are more anti-jewish people in Europe or America than in Pakistan.

Nice to see many Indians dropping by though surprised that Gandhi philosophy just doesnt exist in the mind of any Hindu. The man who was called the 'greatest human who ever lived' by Einstein is a forgotten shadow. ... Times can change.
