pls dont show your ignorance. these criminals are being supported by foreign hostile intel agencies.
Where is the evidence? Which Pakistani court accepted that evidence as legitimate? @Proud Punjabi:
There are conformed intelligence reports
Who confirmed these reports? Where is the oversight over these agencies to prove that agencies are in fact acting lawfully and honestly?
Proud Pakistani | 5 years ago | Reply @Jalal: There are conformed intelligence reports otherwise no one is fool to attack innocent people. Open your mind and eyes don't make the habit to criticize our forces, its really difficult to sacrifice life for country while others enjoying their lives and criticizing our brave forces.
