Arranged marriage shooting.

The British Pakistani community has been in existence for almost as long as the state of Pakistan itself and if it's history is not quite as troubled as that of the home land - it has not been without it's own problems. Racism, multiculturalism, segregation, integration, islamaphobia, mad mullahs, mad families, Tariq Ali - no wonder so many members of the community look so up tight. Mind you they don't always make it easy for themselves. After the recent fatal shooting of British Pakistanis in Gujrat surviving members of the family, in a script that could have been written by the EDL, are complaining about the lack of protection being provided by the British authorities -in Pakistan !
