  1. OMG what shitty London Mayor is he that only visitng a country of his ancesotrs. Come on mate he does not give a fuck about his people. He is a mayor of London not the Mayor of islamabad. Look who I supported all the time.

  2. The Terrorist Sadiq Khant is in Porkistan to arrange for Porki jihadists to work with returning ISIS in Britain to take over the rest of Britain. That will ensure he stays as Mayor of Londonistan as he strikes 'terror' into the hearts of the indigenous people with relentless, multiple bombs.

  3. He goes to India and freely walks the streets with people shaking his hands no worries ! Now he goes to his native country Pakistan and needs loads of security ! You tell me is there something wrong here?

  4. Us Brirish have always had a collonial love affiar with India. Given strained relationships with the EU, do you think he should be doing his 'trade roadshows' in the EU?

  5. London ant fucking open yeah you don't speak for me yes leaving e.u thank God yeah god almighty..
    I never voted 4 you I can't stand you n I don't fucking like you neither ..N this ante a hate crime either …

  6. Theses soldiers as the news reporter described are a paramilitary force known as the Sindh Rangers. They are usually deployed along the Indian border. They have not been deployed for Sadiq Khans protection visit to Karachi alone. The Rangers have been patrolling the streets of Karachi for many many years to stem out criminal activity from the huge mega city. The police were ill equipped and poorly trained to maintain law and order in the city so the Rangers were deployed. Through them Karachi has seen crime reduce but more is required to fully eliminate it.
