What a Darn Shame. Muslim Prayer Leader In Pakistan Gunned Down In Mosque

First off, this all happened in Karachi and if you didn't know, Karachi, Pakistan is like hell on earth - it's like reducing all of the nightmare of Somalia and Yemen combined boiled down into one city.  I don't think I've seen a single day go by in the past 9 months where multiple people in Karachi weren't killed.

But this time, gunmen stormed a mosque and killed the prayer leader - now I gotta believe that Allah and Mohammed tend to frown on that, wouldn't you think?

I guess if we see about 50 more prayer leaders killed in the next few weeks we'll be about equal with the number of Christian pastors and preachers killed by Muslims in Africa in the past year.

The story comes from DAWN.
