    If you are going to make a statistical statement please provide evidence as to where and how the data was gathered. The real headline should be that a German foreign entity has magically gained the ability to credibly sample the average Pakistani’s mind. Smokes and mirrors everywhere.

    Nothing but a bunch of malarkey being forcefully imposed on an average Pakistani mind. This German entity must be stupid to come up with such an atrocity,and if God forbid any truthfulness to this finding: May Allah help this country.

    If the people of Pakistan are so naive and short sighted that after seeing the destruction of every institution of their country by PPP Government and rampant corruption of their leaders they still want to vote for them then they do deserve more catastrophe than what they are facing today.
