اس عورت نے پاک آرمی کے خلاف لکھا ہے . یہ کام اس نے نواز شریف کے کہنے پے کیا تھا. مگر کیا ایک مشرف سے دشمنی کے لیے آپ پوری پاک آرمی کے خلاف لکھیں گے . مجھے اس کی صورت سے نفرت ہے. تف ہے ان لوگوں پر جو اپنے سیاسی مقاصد کے لئے پاکستان آرمی جیسے قومی ادارے کے خلاف پروپگنڈہ کرے .

khan ( karachi,Pakistan) Saturday, October 31, 2009 4:01:19 AM (MDT - USA)
people! i have pretty much studied about her, and this is conform report that dr. ayesha is an isreali agent, recently she had a meeting with some US-isreali officials and certainly she’s paid to write and work against Muslims and Pakistan.she pretends to show that she is patriotic and much loyal with Pakistan, and she’s really very conscious about Pakistan, but the reality is completely inverse.she works for isreali intelligence service, so please don’t be fool.she wrote against ISI in her evil book,she taunt our pak army. and severely criticized the peaceful freedom movement in kashmir.so be aware.this paid woman is enemy of our state.

Wearing dupta or not is strictly personal and family affair. You should comment on her work rather than personal issue. She is better than hypocrites who commit crimes on the name of religion

Dear Roza\\r\\nI want to know anyone who asks u to follow ur religion is an extremist? All people who offer prayers 5 times a day are Taliban? Women in UK wear hijjab do you call them fundamentalist? There are hundreds of religion in this world beside Islam and millions of followers. No one really call them Extremist fundamantalist. why dont u call Christians, hindus, Sikhs & anyone who follows any religion a Taliban, an Extremist & a Fundamentalist why only Muslims? \\r\\n    People like you have just put different labels on themselves. They are just ashamed of everything. In fact ppl like you are real extremist who impose their opinion on others like in France & other Europian countries ban has been imposed on hijjab. I wanna know what stops you from calling them extremist & fundamentalist?
