  2. I am really grateful to the owner of this web
    site who has shared this fantastic post at at this time.

  3. Assalamoalaykum everyone,
    Cheer up sad heart and sees ripening Behind the clouds sun is still shinning
    Country is developed by vision and working hard to achieve the vision. Regretfully, after Muhammed Ali Jinnah Pakistan didn’t get any visionary leader. The mess we have now is due to our 64 years bad selection in elections. It seems to me whole nation has to re-start again with zero. Accepting our mistakes and bad decisions and asking ALLAH’s forgiveness.
    Well, we already tried PPP, PML-N, PML-Q, MQM, ANP and also Pakistan army generals in the past and nothing work out. So it is better to close the non-work out chapters and begin a new chapter with Imran khan.
    ALLAH help and guide Imran Khan and his PTI team to lead Pakistan in good direction. Amen.

  4. Pakistan has around 144 districts and every district has 4/5 so called political families / local feudal lords. One can check their historical background, doesn’t matter if the present generation is educated or little sophisticated. Since independence these families are in power except short period of ZA Bhutto with little participation of middle class. Majority seats in Parliament are from Rural areas and Urban area politicians have the same feudal attitude. Most of these feudal run parallel government in whole district (in tehsils & villages) controlling police and revenue (thana & Kacheri). Even the justice department is also influenced by them in one way or the other by dictation to lawyers and judges.This elite ruling class is corrupt, cruel, law beaker and criminal in many cases. Nothing will change in Pakistan as long as the Development Funds are being distributed among the elected elite. Politics is the highest profitable business of few hundred people in the country.

    • Yes you are right but the process of elected member should be revised again and again, this will slowly filter out the most corrupt one. we as a nation are responsible as whole for the system. we have less patience and very less tolerance. The feuds and political families are facing the power of social media, the process is very slow but bringing change. We are positive. Inshallah one day we shall have our Pakistan as a peaceful country.
