Dear UnDrained,

It is high time you stopped parading half-truths as facts and faced reality yourself. That Rana Bhagwandas has been appointed the Chief Justice of the Pakistan Supreme Court is a fact as has been rightly pointed out by you. What has been conveniently forgotten is the fact that the fanatics (and that includes most of the masses), have been vehemently opposed to his appointment and that there were violent demonstrations against the same in the streets of Lahore. Some voiced serious reservations about a 'kafir' judging the 'faithfuls' in their "pure " land. As regards "equal " rights to Jews in Syria, Iran, Morocco, etc. pray, what are these "equal" rights? Do they include:

1) The freedom of religion - to practice and propagate it?

2) The right to build places of worship and seek funds from the Govt.for their maintenance and upkeep?
