Wearing the poppy with pride

Reader comment on item: The Next London Bombing

Given that Pakistani soldiers have also fallen in various wars fighting on the side of Britain, why is it that Camilla, wife of our heir either cannot wear the poppy, or has to cover it up when out and about in Pakistan? What possible insult could this give to Islam? It has no religious significance as far as I know.

I know that Prince Charles said on at least one occasion that if and when crowned as King he wants to be called defender of faith rather than defender of the faith, ie Christianity. Could it be that the royal family know something that is as yet not common knowledge? That control will more and more pass into Muslim hands, until they have it all? If that is the plan, I have bad news for Prince Charles. If that day ever dawns, and make no mistake it will if nothing changes, and changes radically and quickly, for there is not much time left. He will never be King. unless of course he converts to Islam and becomes Crowned King Charles bin abd al Windsor.

One other point. He is pleading while he is there for clemency for a Pakistani, with British Nationality, who at present is waiting to be executed, having been found guilty of murder in Pakistan. Why? the man knew the penalty, if caught and convicted. He comitted the crime in Pakistan, he knew the possible consequences. It is far too late to plead for clemency. How much clemency did he offer to the taxi driver he was found guilty of killing?
