I will wait to hear from Fusion himself, since he lives in the US and has been there since a very young age.
The US is not perfect and Muslims are certainly under suspicion and may face some cases of discrimination. However, the overwhelming majority of the time they are treated with respect and dignity. Compare that with the treatment of minorities in Pakistan and other Muslim countries and it becomes clear who's morally superior. Frankly, if you want to see the best parts of Islam in actual practice, come live in the US. In terms of openly and proudly practicing your religion, respecting the rights of its citizens, and giving everyone the opportunity to better their own life, the US puts any other Muslim country to shame.
A little OT, but I loved the video below that some university students made in Pakistan. Can't help but smile at their enthusiasm, vibrancy, and corny (yet effective) choreography to pop tunes!

Really nice video showcasing a Pakistani uni campus and the creative talent of Pak students. Thanks for the upload Fusion, made me smile.
Dude, I don't live in the US (but apparently that guy does) so I thought he might have some basic understanding of issues. Didn't know that guy was a bit OTT.
I thought you were trying to be part of the American society and it was becoming difficult for you because of those monsters hence you were averse to being critical of anything in American foreign policy. Even uttering the word talks wrt to "the monsters" was anathema to you so I thought there might be something wrong at the back end. Interesting news coming up though

education is the least corrupt dept despite being quite corrupt. Sorry state of affairs this.
One thing I don't really get is why is Imran saying he will end corruption in 90 days. I am a big Imran supporter but this claim sounds outlandish at best
Btw,if any of you are interested in a kickass documentary :

I cannot emphasise this enough. I really cannot.Compare that with the treatment of minorities in Pakistan and other Muslim countries and it becomes clear who's morally superior.
