Abdullah | 6 years ago | Reply Charity begins at home. Kindly tell your father to remove Qaim Ali Shah and people like him who have destroyed the beautiful province of Sindh. They are the reason that plio spreads in Sindh and Pakistan.
K Alam | 6 years ago | Reply Dear Ms.Asifa, this is not the appropriate way to invite people for some cause, rather a publicity stunt. The better way could have been to meet them in personal or making a phone call or sending a letter or email.
