    I don’t get it, if the residents are such security targets then why do they insist on staying in such densely populated areas and endanger lives of other around them too?

    Tear down the wall too … I want access to public access roads, enough of this nonsense.Recommend

    But what about the nasty wall erected all around the den

    And what about the forced occupation of around 40 houses around the den

    and what about the service roads occupied by the den occupants

    and what about the trillions of rupees looted from the occupants of the den

    When will the “law” of this country catch and punish these mega VVIP Criminals and Looters ??Recommend

    In the same city where barriers are forced removed at other places, police force refused to remove it to Bilawal House. Now, the His Highness Mr. Zardari has approved it so the barriers are removed. What a city we live in! Where are the Rangers who are screwing around otherwise???Recommend

    I must say a big Thank you to Mr. Zardari for having ordered the barriers around his house to be removed. Maybe he was not aware that closed road was making problems to all peoples who wanted to use this road. But now its done and all users of road is happy peoples.Recommend
