What is reasonable?
Justice has to be reasonable. Any decision which is based on no reason or taken in a whim or fancy is unjust. Similarly if the reasons have nothing to do with the decision, it is arbitrary and perverse. It is also nicknamed as Wednesbury’s Arbitrariness, due to the decision of House of Lords on the subject.

But the task of Islam/Pakistan is not complete.The Pakistan looks for “Takmeel-e-Pakistan” which means perfection. It will happen when all the Muslim in the world comes together. Can you guess what this “togetherness” will do? No marks for guessing. It is a hush talk of what ISIS dare to speak without mincing words.
The creation of Pakistan saw murder of million and exodus of Millions of Hindu/Sikh/minorities other than Muslims from West Punjab (and East Bengal) which was declared Pakistan. A state born with violence and whose first policy decision was to attack its minorities and second was to attack Kashmir, can not be expected shun violence. Therefore the crucial question is: “What are the above said thousand cuts?
