On 13-02-13, Supreme Court of Pakistan stated that ALL citizens who have taken Oath and Allegiance to the Queen QEII, are regarded as trying to sabotage Pakistan, therefore, I urge Prime Minister of UK who represents Her Majesty Government and all those citizens who have taken oath and allegiance to the Queen Elizabeth II, to force their Governments and ensure that all these Commonwealth countries including UK where the QE is the head of State must stop ALL AID and TRADE with Pakistan immediately.

@Mohammad Ali Siddiqui Rather than banning dual national from contesting elections, people who are making properties outside Pakistan should be banned from contesting. Why aren't those people spending their money on Pakistan rather than building palaces outside Pakistan.
