Islamabad, Pakistan. After a US Drone attack killed Hakimullah Mehsud, the head of the Pakistani Taliban, Pakistan has requested USA to attack only civilians and spare the terrorists for maximum impact.

Hakimullah Mehsud
Many in Pakistan are outraged that this guy was killed in a drone attack

“What’s the point of making life tougher for everyone?” Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif argued, “Look, everyone, from Imran Khan to Iran and China, is condemning the latest attack even though drone attacks have been going on for years.”

“I don’t know why Obama is behaving like a dehati aurat and spoiling it all,” Mr. Sharif is reported to have said, but the use of the word “dehati aurat” is disputed.

Later talking exclusively to Faking News, Pak PM confirmed that he has spoken with the US president and asked him to “take it easy”.

“Pakistan has ample population and we can afford losing a few civilians, but after losing Osama Bin Laden, we have very few world class terrorists left in the country. US should understand this if they want to continue operating in this area.”

Trying to reassure the terrorist community, Sharif added, “There is no need to panic. All mujahideens will be safe in Pakistan. We have explained to the USA why they shouldn’t attack the mujahideens.”

“You cannot keep killing terrorists if you want sustained peace in the region and a resolution of the Kashmir problem,” Sharif is reported to have explained to Obama.
