To each his own, but ...

I'm not sure kite-flying qualifies as a tehvaar.

It is good to see that Malik Nazir Ahmed Khokar has his priorities straight, with all the serious problems in the country, he's astute enough to highlight the most prominent one.

Patang Bazi=Tehvaar(?)=apocalypse

God help us!

Religion is so very useful in shutting up debate about anything isn't it? I'm waiting to see mullahs in green turbans running after the 'kaafir' kiteflyers to slay them for 'deserting' Islam.

I am all for discouraging/regulating kiteflying in urban centers where it interrupts power and kills people (both can be avoided/prevented through proper planning - underground wiring and effective regulation against the use of kitestrings mixed with ground glass). But please, the Hindus do not worship kites or kiteflying or kiteflyers. Using red is a symbol of communists, and blue is the color of Israel's flag, and displaying banners like this is, I think, a Western (and therefore obviously Christian) tradition. And the power lines in the background are definitely unIslamic since the Arabs did not invent them.
