Ashraf | 5 years ago | Reply I really appreciate Genral Raheel Shareef step to irredicate terrorism from Pakistan . The nation of Pakistan put their trust only in Pak Army. The polititicin may never be trusted and good thing operation against corruption is the need of Pakistan . The operation is the only way to make a new set up and operation must be conducted in all Goverment sector and bodies specially in Police and Custom FBR and other departments. The image of Pakistani citizen has so poor and really green passport are hated in western world . Every Pakistani shuould need to recover his image by showing his sincerity with the country. Pakistan is a Heaven on this earth but we never believe it we only appreciate admire another country where nothing with to do . but why I ask ?
