Each strike of whip by the fanatic mullah on the young girl in front of a crowd in Swat was like a slap on the faces of the Chief Minister NWFP, Prime Minister, President, our legislators and our people. It has left an imprint on the face of every civilized Pakistani. On this day, the religious grace and Pukhtun pride were both disgraced. -DR GHAYUR AYUB, London, UK, via e-mail, April 3.
