The wife of a traitor who does not know that free mixing of man and woman is haram in Islam. But these people have no faith. They should be hanged till death to save our beloved country Pakistan. May Allah delete these selfish traitors from Pakistan.

She is the speaker because she happens to be married to Mr. Ten percent’s right hand Mr. Mirza “the traitor” (we decided to break up Pakistan fame). They all are characterless characters who done nothing for the poor people. They all are corrupt to the bone! Since the shahadat of BB Mrs. Mirza has been trying hard to look like BB. She can never come close to BB in appearance or brains

she is worse speaker in the history of pakistan. parliment have achieved nothing in last 13 months because the speaker is unable to even impelment resolutions of parliment. the only achievement of this speaker is to put bariers in the proceedings of qaima committee to save the 9dogar) chief of injustice.

Dr Fahmida and her husband are equally responsible for the current situation of Pakistan. They are partners of corrupt zardari who is trying to take revenge from this nation. Shame on you aligned speaker and shame on your husband too.

Sohail Memon ( Nawab Shah,Pakistan) Monday, February 16, 2009 4:57:06 PM (MDT - USA)
she has directly protected illegal justice dogar by creating barriers in the proceedings of qiama committee. she has proved she is not non aligned speaker and she is working on the agenda of zardari. we hate you and your husband.

Abid Rehman ( Badin,Pakistan) Wednesday, February 4, 2009 11:02:47 AM (MDT - USA)
you are cause of disrespect to a respectable position of speaker. you have proved by putting hurdles in proceedings of qaima committee that you are alligned on side of justice dogar. shame on you and your husband. you are both liars and cheaters.

Dr. Mirza ( her husband) should learn from her that how to behave soberly. She should tell him that\\r\\n\\\" mein hoon na \\\" to teach him. \\r\\nDr. Fahmida Mirza is a well behaved sober person who is contributing a lot to the nation through her good attitude in and outside the National Assembly. I wish that other leaders of PPPP should follow her.
