Pakistan, which is fast becoming the rental state of the Communist Party of China (CPC), under pressure from Xi Jinping’s administration, has now started erecting a wall of barbed fencing around Gwadar city. The fencing project, if and when completed, will cut off the heart of Gwadar city, leaving only one entry point and one exit point for the city’s residents, reports Sunday Guardian.

The CPEC authority is building a wall measuring 10 feet in height, covering the length of 30 km, has now created a massive discontent and furore in the region. China, which is worried about the safety of its men and machine stationed at the strategic Gwadar port, has forced the Pakistanis to create a divide in Gwadar restricting the local Balochis to travel within the city

Pakistan will be unable to repay the loans taken from China. This will give an advantage to China to forcefully take control of Pakistan and install their government in Pakistan. Thus whole of Pakistan will be under control of China.

Islam Is a Religion of Violence
Anyone seeking support for armed jihad in the name of Allah will find ample support in the passages in the Quran and Hadith that relate to Mohammed’s Medina period. For example, Q4:95 states, “Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home).” Q8:60 advises Muslims “to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know.” Finally, Q9:29 instructs Muslims: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

One needs to introspect first. If you look around declared Muslim nations don’t give equal rights to people of other faith. There is a tendencies to denigrate and suppress the freedom of minorities and state overtly or covertly looks other way in most of the cases. Are you prepared to give to others what you demand from them.
Any Islamic state should first introspect whether it is ready to give equal rights to people of other faith, before it starts demanding similar rights from others
Here is the conundrum:
‘While the majority of Muslims are not terrorists…. the majority of terrorists are Muslims”
