    I think all holy names should be removed from all muslim countries flag. I have seen lot of them scattered on the roads after some demonstration or any national ceremony .

    This is what happens when countries/organizations/companies/people try to take ownership of Islam. The religion of Islam should not be treated as ownership of anybody. Nobody owns it. Even prefixing "Islamic"" in front of countries names like Pakistan is wrong.

    Exactly. The shahada should not be there in the first place as it just invites incidents like this. Go for something neutral.

    For the very obvious reason that Pakistan trips on the first requirement of being "Islamic". Islam is a religion. It's followers are Muslim. Therefore for anything "Islamic" it has to be inclusive of "Muslims". And this without discrimination, division or exclusion on any grounds other then religion.

    The Pakistani state does not allow or give licence to "Muslims" or accept them as citizens. It instead has complicated secular driven notion of geography and citizenshipthrough historical circumstance mostly through being "native". So a Christian who was living in Pakistan in 1947 is Pakistani citizen and so are his dependants but a poius Muslim who follows all of the tenets laid in the Quran but lives in Somalia will be refused - not because of anything to do with Islam but simply because of geography?

    So tell me what is so "Islamic" about that? Deny citizenship to Muslims but claming to be "Islamic"? Do you not see the naked contradiction???
