aam shehri | 6 years ago | Reply @Malatesh Do not be crazy, POK is worlds best and peaceful region run by Pak, but in IOK there are thousands of issues where your brave army is trying to capture the region forcefully since 1947 but failed. Who are you to interfere in CPIC ? just be relaxed about Balochistan my dear neighbour and concentrate on Assam, Uttar Pradesh Tamil Nadu etc etc etc !!
Human | 6 years ago | Reply @Virkaul: @Malatesh Balochistan is not a disputed territory as far as i know and neither was it occupied....i believe i had made myself extremely careful in not mentioning indias internal affairs like maoist-naxalits,Assam insurgency and occupation of Goa
