Knighthood for Altaf - a Good Idea

in response to reader comment: Queen should Knight Altaf Hussain Next

If Altaf can help in fighting Islamism by dismembering Pakistan and can help form a seperate country south of Pakistan, Her Majesty's Government would do well to knight him.

Altaf is an angel compared to other Pakistani politicians. There have been worser thugs in Pakistan. Benazir contributed for the growth of Talibs. Islamists, Zulfiqar Bhutto and his executor, Zia-ul-Haq built the nuclear bomb and pushed the Deobandi agenda. For global peace and stability it is essential to defang Islamist country of Pakistan.

If Altaf peddles a moderate non-Islamist vision, which includes the right to openly criticize Quran and Mohummad, he will deserve unstinting support from the west and from every right thinking person.
