Border real meaning is control,,,,,,,,,,, everyone who is on the border are ignorant, corrupt, and losser. thats why they can't control their borders.

these people who cross the border line illegally, they know they are dealing will corrupt people and will get away from them.

India is bigger losser and now Afghanistan is because they always have a lot of problem going on about borders control.

Pakistan is trapped by its own policies againest its border control and INSHAALLAH will come out in near future.

I hope good days for every single country who is suffering with its own internal & External problems, including India, PAKISTAN, Afghanistan, Iran and china and others.
