Nasir | 7 years ago | Reply Another Mullah in justice system. CJP can't take suo motu action on issues pertaining to corruption, lawlessness, and bad governance in Punjab and the whole damn country but Markaz -e- Islami building converting to Cinema caused him to check. I think Raheel Sharif now implement across the board accountability enough of this bull that people of Pakistan has to face!
