the original article just showed that some militants have been destroying things. does this really surprise anyone? they are militants, extremists on the fringe of their society. not every pakistani/muslim wants to do these things.
the big problem is people who are small minded and take the actions of a minority of the population's people as the actions of all.
but remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.
