    After a campaign by PEN for his knighthood, he got it. Why should the British govt bother about politicians of other countries? If Altaf Hussien is a killer, the Pakistani govt should ban his organization. Obviously the Pakistani govt does not have the backbone, for it, unlike the British govt which has some backbone, is protecting it's citizens on the hitlist of Islamic assassins as well as honour his contribution to their language.
