    Utter shame on you'll. When it comes to getting favors, Muslims and Muslim countries are genuine and good friends. When it comes to their rights, they are the No.1 enemies... Hmmm..

    Sri Lanka must realize that Pakistan is proxy defending or promoting Chinese interests which are not good for the region. Already Sri Lanka has experienced the Chinese debt trap. Hope they get wiser and get closer to India

    Pakistan does not have two faces as others. But others do, one face for bullying through terrorism and the other face for friendship.
