    Ahmadi in America: Why Shahbaz Bhatti’s death gives me hope

    ‘Verdict makes me feel like a 2nd-class citizen’

    No Reason for feeling like second class citizen. The decision can and will be challanged in the supreme court. Yes it is a panchayati decision but I can not think of any alternate way which can lead to resolution.

    The Ground-zero mosque, continued
