  1. Assalam o alaikum respected Yousaf Raza Sahib

    “If you want to get something done, do it yourself.”
    So, time to do something Biiiiiiiiiig.

    Sir, do our leaders have enough much surplus time to Ruin. You take one issue and stretch it over the time.
    This practice is continued for many years. Now a days Issue is judges. Before it was uniform, then lawers , then
    Mr. Iftikhar. Are judges pickle we have to eat. Is people of Pakistan are not any issue

    Why you people come into government when you cant Command or you are puppet.

    Think you are prime minister and leader, not a party man. Ok

    Being the prime minister and above all Al-e-Rasool, You are intended to behave and take strong actions like
    our Holly Beloved Prophet and Khulafa-e-Rashadeen did.

    Remember man is borne not for himself. He is borne for Others. Have fear of Allah in your heart, the fear for other
    than Allah will automatically vanish. You will feel power from Allah. In this critical time attach the people of your
    country with you. Fulfill their needs with strong actions. Use them to overcome the problems. Fetch the talent,
    Creams, technocrats out from them, use them. Order them Being a leader. If leaders like Mao Ze-dong,
    Ayatollah Khomeini, Ahmedi Nayad and many others can Bring revolution, why can’t you. If I can change myself,
    I also can chande some people. But, a leader can change a nation. If you love nation, nation will love a loving leader like you.
    Implement laws drived from Quran and Sunnah.

    So brother do it you have no seconds to waste. Bring revolution. Only think and do.
