hakeem | 10 years ago | Reply @Patriot, sir, in my opinion problem is neither with judiciary nor with politicians its infact something wrong with ourselves we make them heros of God's stature thn they become creatures out of this world...if we learn using ballot honestly flood of prosperity is bound to come our way, and a true representative parliament is ultimate success.
Patriot | 10 years ago | Reply "Rivers of milk will flow in Pakistan after the restoration of democracy" Aitezaaz Ahsan.... i am sure the floods in Pakistan have come in an effort by the thugs in black coats to discover the source in northern areas. Free judiciary is the biggest lie spoken to the people of pakistan. What difference has it brought in the life of ordinary individual. Even a petty issue like the removal of tankers from Shireen Jinnah colony is a constant reminder how weak this supposedly strongest judiciary ever is. No one mentioning of the detailed investigation of Arsalan Iftikhar case here??
