MMA | 11 years ago | Reply The punjab govt has failed to preotect its people. Look at the number of attacks by terrorists as of late, it is disturbing. Nawaz Sharif and his brother have no business, whatsoever, to be in the government.

Irfan Butt | 11 years ago | Reply For Mr. Khadim-e-Ala Punjab Could you please clear the meanings of Khadim-e-Ala Punjab, i think it means the man who serves the people, love the people, create a good atmosphere for people to live safely with their relegion in their relegious places n many responsibilites. But the largest incident / attacks which was done by the terrorists on Religious place of Lahorities, has given very deep wounds on heart / thoughts of lahore people. And Mr. Khadim-e-Ala your entire team never stop the terrorists to attack, they succeed to gave deep wounds on hearts of lahore people (the followers of Sakhi Peer Data Ali Hajveri (R.A)). I love my Sakhi Peer and the attackers couldn't out the love of Sakhi Peer Data (R.A) from my and follower hearts. InshAllah Azawajal. Please Mr. Khadim-e-Ala do something for these deep wounds.
