ajaz | 5 years ago | Reply Suggest change the sleeping absent minded CM of Sindh and bring powerful strong effective and caring Pakistani from Sindh as the CM. If not please handover Sindh to Army for sometime to eradicate this life of terror and crime.
When | 5 years ago | Reply Pakistan is not safe, everyone should know that. Do not behave and act as though it is.Just make very sure that you take precautions where ever you go, and whatever you do. Do not show off, do not try to gain importance, show prominence. Every day that passes by we ask ourselves what is this country about, when a governor can get shot by his own bodyguard, his son kidnapped, a prime minister's son kidnapped, now a justice son kidnapped, so many hundreds of thousands of people killed in violence since Pakistan was created in 1947 for a homeland for the Muslims of the Sub-Continent. When will we have the courage to accept what has happened since 1947 thread bare, why are we so very scared of our own selves, our own history, our own people? when will we wake up?
