Suicide attacks

I am very much shocked with the recent countrywide bombing incidents that took many valuable lives. Islam, the religion of peace, surly doesn't permit such destruction and wayward activities. Some misguided people are taking advantage of the ignorance of common people regarding Islam and portraying a wrong picture of the religion.

Islam has been preached in this sub continent through love, tolerance and equality, not with brutal force. I would request the Islamic scholars to come forward and help remove all misunderstanding and fanaticism. As a nation we always stood united whenever any crisis arose. I hope that this time also we will not fail to rise above our own interest; otherwise it will endanger our very existence.
