how much more time will it take us to get out of zia's pathetic and cheap mentality and polices....????u cant do this. personal freedom is something u cant hold. ramadan is a holy minth but it doesnot mean to prosecute others.if u go out nw a days it presents the scence of draught.hope people may get the nuance difference between religion and freedom.

Two people from Faisalabad were caught in DI Khan. They were not locals and one does not have to fast if away from home or traveling. Looks like the poor men did not have much cash on them that is why the police had to book them. Ramazan is practiced by force and terror. Many people are sugar patient and have to eat every few hours otherwise they would die. How can we force everybody to fast?
