    The only pearls of Pakistani wisdom is to Bully and Blackmail. They can not think of solution of their problems without using these two.

    Mir should seem political asylum somewhere. Once marked, danger exists life long.

    Malala Yousafzai calls Hamid Mir

    BIRMINGHAM: In her first telephone call from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital here, Malala Yousafzai and her father called senior journalist and Geo News anchor Hamid Mir.

    “Malala Yousafzai and her father just called me from UK and expressed their solidarity. Malala said that Insha Allah we will defeat terrorists,” Mir tweeted.

    The anchor escaped an assassination attempt when police defused a bomb planted on the passenger side of his car in Islamabad on Monday morning.

    The material included a battery, a 35 no. detonator and ball bearings.

    Interior Minister Rehman Malik has announced a reward of Rs 50 million for credible information regarding the attempt on Mir’s life.

    Could it really be the TeT or was it the ISI? Hamid Mir has been on the hit list of the "establishment" for quite a while. Especially after his recent comments on who financed/planned 26/11:
