    Nothing is bigger than terrorism and nothing is bigger than terrorist in stan. stan is making a bin-laden stadiium in islamabad, and has renamed a street in abotabad as Osama street. A scholarship in the name of Mullah Omar, and the best terrorist award in the name of Ajmal kasab medal.A mosque in the name of afzal guru is under construction. lt;br/gt;stan is a proud nation of organized terrorism where terrorists have ranks, medals and uniform. Many junior officers in army also declare themselves as terrorissts to claim free benifits. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;terrorist is most respected till he is alive. When terrorist dies, the army refuses all relationshp and does not even claim the body.
