z khan | 3 years ago | Reply Assalamualaikum Its very sad and tragedy that a young life has lost for nothing. Nobody has the right to take soneone's life.Youth have totally lost their direction due to lack of knowledge of their deen islam and purpose of thier existence. I dont see any difference between terrorist organisations and nawaz league who recruit young and emotional youth to fufill their evil agenda and have no value for human life what so ever. We have witnessed hundreds of incidents committed by them during n outside their term. The recent murder of that beautiful child who crushed to death and left him on the road dying.
