Why is Qari Hussain Ahmed Still Alive?

Seriously? Does this mean we have to kill to get our political agenda across in Pakistan? Why is Qari Hussain still alive after everything he's done?

Imran Farooq may have been killed as the establishment wanted him; but his killing serves the purpose of a worse organisation, and a worse ideology than that of the MQM's; Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, the TTP and Al Qaeda.

Five Rupees recently had an interview with Ali Dayan Hasan of Human Rights Watch who spoke out on how HR Watch managed to get the Army to stop its policy of summary executions. I think that was wrong. People like Qari Hussain Ahmed and Hakimullah Mehsud deserve summary execution. I wonder how many deaths these murderers will rack up before the entire Pakistani system puts these people in Riaz Basra category where they are just discovered and simply killed.

And apparently Riaz Basra was killed because he made the mistake of being discovered as a bunch of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi fanatics in a Shia village. Which means that if you want your political voice heard in Pakistan, you better have a few sticks and bullets to start with.
