KARACHI: 

The Sindh government will provide free plots in Defence Housing Authority (DHA), Karachi to the heirs of soldiers who have lost their lives in the ongoing war against terrorism.

President Asif Ali Zardari directed the provincial government to allot 1,000 acres of land in DHA phase 9 for the purpose, according to a source.  The provincial government has received the letter and has started taking action, the source added. More than 3,000 soldiers have lost their lives in the war against terrorism, in their efforts to counter militancy and extremism across Pakistan, especially in the tribal areas.

    Brother these soldiers gave up there life’s in the battle called “War on Terror” for the love of GOD think for a second they joined PAKISTAN Army not SINDH or PUNJAB Army so it doesn’t matter where those martyrs family members get plots in Karachi, Lahore, Multan, Hyderabad, Larkana or etc.

    Nice way to grab land, everyone knows that no one gets anything from this government when their relative dies because of terrorism.

    Work on the DHA phase 9 has JUST begun and government is already eyeing on the land. What a shame!!!
