It is sad that Pakistan has supported the position of China in its criticism of Nobel committee in awarding Nobel peace prize to Liu Xiaobo.
Liu is in prison for developing Chater 08 a documented created to set Chinese agenda to promote freedom of religion,conscience and thought in china .350 Chinese and many thousands people worldwide had signed the document in solidarity with the Chinese conscience fighters.Chinese courts gave him 11 year jail for this action .Liu is hero of Tienanmen Square uprising particularly important leader to diffuse the torsion and avoid blood shed.
I guess China does not like any leader religious political which is not approved and sanctioned by the party.It can not tolerate independent thinker like LIu Xiaobo.
Pakistan had only one Nobel Laureate .First Muslim Nobel laureate Mr Abdus Salam .Dr Abdus Salam belonged to Ahmadiya sect .Sadly a 1974 law of Pakistan had declared Ahmadiya's non Muslim in Islamic republic of the pure the Pakistan .After Dr Salams death his body was buried in Pakistan and on his grave a marker was placed stating he was the first Muslim Nobel laureate .Some body went to court and got the judgement that he being Ahmadiya was not Muslim and court agreed and ordered the word Muslim should be removed from his grave stone and was done so.
No respect for Chinese Peace prize winner can be expected from Pakistani Government when they treated its honored son so badly.
ANY NATION WHICH FAILS TO RESPECT ITS THINKERS AND FAILS TO HONOR OUTSTANDING SCIENTISTS AND LEADERS IS DOOMED TO FAILURE .SADLY PAKISTAN IS ON ITS TRAGIC PATH.
PS:Corrections in the name to charter 08 and number of signatories have been made after fact checking with wiki.Concept of charter 08 was based on charter 77 presented in 1977 by dissidents in Czeckoslovakia.Agreeing to universal principals by host governments was the basis for documents.
