Disgusting | 5 years ago | Reply A coordinated effort by Modi and PML N Chief to distract world attention from atrocities being perpetrated by Modi's Forces on Brave Kashmiris who demand their right to freedom. Modi' Army has also violated ceasefire line and killed an innocent citizen of Azad Kashmir. Local noon league has deliberately generated a clash with ruling PPP.
Malik Saab | 5 years ago | Reply The craze of showing the Mobile Phone and its particular brand is like a Status symbol in Pakistan. I have never seen like this in West and America. It is very specific to this region only. Pure show off and nothing else. We have to learn a lot in this case.
