Nation of Pakistan-A message to my Country men

- Advertisement -spot_imgspot_img

How long before they realize they have killed 300000 for their 3000, and that too courtesy a charade they nearly pulled off and now its Marriott. Lets go down memory lane and see how others have been effected. Figures double to what I narrated. We still have hope, lets wake up. We could well be next, we are, they say it all day, we choose to ignore.

Try tallying all losses, civilian, three countries, and this number is less. And besides we live the 911 they experienced once. Our children aren’t safe, our families face the real heat. And unfortunately when buildings melt, transponders melt, we have never found a passport miraculously un-burnt that leads us to a war in some third country, from blood sucking vermin’s we enjoyed in Looney tunes, we dread the Oil sucking vermin’s that would go to any length to rape and victimize our nations, our generations all in the name of relief.

IT ALL STARTED FROM MY STATUS UPDATE ABOVE:
We elect, we re-elect, taken for a ride, memory spans trip like a counter every two years, new faces (revamped) new memories, new mistakes, new consequences, or is it? It’s a chain. We are the only nation that believes in refurbished leaders, sent packing courtesy contractual obligations, or self exile; they all end up at the same factory. Striking new deals, selling us long before selling their campaigns to us. Common man doesn’t know, nor will he, but why? For half the nation chooses not to make them selves heard. We hear the newly transplanted hair duo and third rated self acclaimed martyrs who have to sell out their fathers name to become a sellable commodity amidst the masses, make claims, of restoration of judiciary, electricity, food, shelter and you name it, they have a slogan for any problem, like FDA has a pill for every symptom. They keep on advertizing till you one day say, yeah I have that, I should go get it.

Common man, what does he do? Where does he go? Me, you, the people next door, or that distant bystander. Where does he go? Who does he go to? You choose not to support each other. Those I mention above throw the “160 million’s support” (Sola Crore Awam)slogan at you a dozen times a day and you believe it. Wake up. Half the nation doesn’t vote. That gives us a simple majority in the parliament if we were to stand for each other. The rest of the vote being divided amongst various parties, we would in fact have more than that.

How many more explosions do we need, how many more. Don’t look towards the west, don’t run there either. They are going down as the educated and privileged there are no less illiterate than us when it comes to policies, their leaders, their banks. The Federal Reserve Bank there isn’t owned by them. Its 16 people, wonder why the policies happen to be inclined towards one country. They themselves are hostages, how and why would they help? Can they? They have printed more bills than the gold required and are a century ahead of the deficit on the printing front. They suck Oil today for they need another collateral. FROM THE BLOOD SUCKING VERMINS WE ENJOYED FROM LOONEY TUNES, WE HAVE AN ALL NEW BREED OF OIL SUCKING VERMINS, MOLESTING AND VICTIMIZING OTHER NATIONS FOR THEIR (FAILED POLICIES) IN THE NAME OF RELIEF.

Claims of not negotiating with terrorists shall remain claims. They are a personal aide to the real terrorists, economic in nature or otherwise. Back in the day these were referred to as the middlemen for the fairer gender that were on the market. Today popular belief leads you to believe its some man wearing a velvet coat and driving a burgundy car with gold rims, but really it is who we see, telling us, trying to educate us, as to how badly we need their services to sort our misery.

So come to think of it we aren’t all that different from the majority there, so they would understand too if we rise today. They are as much hostages to their captive leaders as we are to ours. We have something in common. The mere difference being we are acquainted to grain and they are to waffles. They drive thru a franchise, it is thrown from planes here, 60kilo bag on a 40 kilo man. We are next.

Take a look below, visit the site as well. See what’s coming our way. Hell. Just tell me you are with me, lets stand, lets make our own fate, please, this time wont return. We are the only ones that stand a chance, if at all. We need each other, not these cancerous elements. Unite. Let’s show them we can rise above the divide they plant in the name of language, ethnicity, race, caste creed and religion.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. I PRAY THAT ALLAH HELPS US START SOMETHING. A CHANGE TAKES GENERATIONS, A REVOLUTION A GENERATION; TO EVOKE A REVOLUTION REQUIRES A SPARK. LET’S TRY AND DO OUR BIT. LET’S CREATE THAT SPARK AND SEE IF IT CATCHES FIRE. IF YOU ARE WORRIED TODAY WHO WOULD BELL THE CAT, WHO WOULD TAKE THEE BULLET, WHO WOULD TAKE A CHANCE ON BEING TORTURED, MY ANSWER IS, I WOULD. NOW WE HAVE ONE. I HAVE FOUND ONE BELIEVER IN ME, CAN YOU DO THE SAME.

U.S. and coalition authorities rarely provide any public estimates of Afghan or Iraqi troop or civilian casualties or injuries. In this absence of official data, we present the latest and lowest credible estimates we’ve found. Where a range is estimated (for example, 2,500-4,000), the lower figure is always cited.

• Afghan troops killed: Based on an unpublished November 2003 estimate by Mark Herold, Ph.D at the University of New Hampshire, augmented by Dr. Herold’s tracking of media reports since. See Dr. Herold’s website for more information.

• Afghan troops seriously injured: Posted number reflects our estimate, using a conservative, historically-based ratio of 3:1 (serious injuries to fatalities) for troops during wartime.

• Afghan civilians killed: Based on estimate and tracking by Dr. Herold through May 2003, and augmented from media accounts since then, as listed at Dr Herold’s website. Deaths since Dr Herold’s latest update (July 2004) are not included.

• Afghan civilians seriously injured: Posted number reflects our estimate, using a conservative, historically-based ratio of 1.8:1 (serious injuries to fatalities) for civilians during wartime.

• U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan: US military deaths in Afghanistan are announced by US Department of Defense and CENTCOM, and tallied at Wikipedia, which notes that “the American figure is for deaths ‘In and Around Afghanistan’ which, as defined by the U.S. Department of Defense, includes some deaths in Pakistan and Uzbekistan, the death of a DoD civilian employee, and the deaths of four CIA operatives.” According to Wikipedia, “As of September 3, 2008, there have been 884 coalition deaths in Afghanistan as part of ongoing coalition operations (Operation Enduring Freedom and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF)) since the U.S. invasion in 2001. In this total, the American figure is for deaths “In and Around Afghanistan” which, as defined by the U.S. Department of Defense, includes some deaths in Pakistan and Uzbekistan[1], the death of a DoD civilian employee, and the deaths of four CIA operatives; and the Italian figure includes the death of an intelligence agent. In addition to these deaths in Afghanistan, 62 Spanish soldiers returning from Afghanistan were killed in Turkey on May 26, 2003 when their plane crashed.”

• U.S. troops seriously injured in Afghanistan: To the best of our knowledge, this data is not publicly tracked (if you know a reliable source for this information, please let us know). Posted number reflects our estimate, using a conservative, historically-based ratio of 3:1 (serious injuries to fatalities) for troops.

• Other coalition troops killed in Afghanistan: Coalition military deaths in Afghanistan are announced by US Department of Defense and CENTCOM, and tallied at Wikipedia, which notes that “In addition to these deaths in Afghanistan, 62 Spanish soldiers returning from Afghanistan were killed in Turkey on May 26, 2003 when their plane crashed.” We have included these 62 dead.

• Other coalition troops seriously injured in Afghanistan: To the best of our knowledge, this data is not publicly tracked (if you know a reliable source for this information, please let us know). Posted number reflects our estimate, using a conservative, historically-based ratio of 3:1 (serious injuries to fatalities) for troops.

• Contractors killed in Afghanistan: Based on this July 2007 Reuters article, which cites US Department of Labor statistics obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. The article reports that 75 private contractors had been killed in Afghanistan from the beginning of hostilities in 2001 through July 2007.

• Contractors seriously injured in Afghanistan: Based on the same article, 2,428 private contractors had been seriously wounded in Afghanistan from the beginning of hostilities in 2001 through July 2007.

• Journalists killed in Afghanistan: Based on numbers tracked by Wikipedia.

• Journalists seriously injured in Afghanistan: To the best of our knowledge, this data is not publicly tracked (if you know a reliable source for this information, please let us know).

• Iraqi troops killed: Based on an estimate of 30,000 deaths, offered by US Gen. Tommy Franks, cited by the Washington Post on Oct. 23, 2003. No estimate has been made publicly since that time.

• Iraqi troops seriously injured: Posted number reflects our estimate, using a conservative, historically-based ratio of 3:1 (serious injuries to fatalities) for troops during wartime.

• Iraqi civilians killed: Based on this study [pdf], published in the British medical journal The Lancet in October 2006. The study concluded that at least 392,979 Iraqi civilians had been killed in the occupation, in addition to deaths expected from Iraq’s normal death rate, through July 2006. The study’s mid-point estimate was 654,965, and its high estimate was 942,636. U.S. authorities, including President Bush himself, have loudly complained that the study is based on “flawed methodology” and “pretty well discredited,” but as often happens when Bush speaks, that’s simply untrue. The study was conducted by Johns Hopkins University, and used standard, widely accepted, peer-reviewed scientific methodology. Explained very briefly, Iraqi respondants in numerous randomly selected locations were asked about recent deaths in their households, and family members were able to show a death certificate to document 80% of the deaths they described. Results from these interviews were extrapolated nationwide, the same way political opinion polls extrapolate a few hundred interviews to reflect nationwide opinions. It’s the same method used by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to estimate deaths from disease outbreak anywhere in the world, the same method routinely trusted by the U.S. and U.K. when counting deaths from warfare, civil unrest, or other situations anywhere in the world. From the study’s lowest estimate of 392,979 deaths occurring over the first 40 months of occupation, we have extended this rate of civilian deaths (9,824 deaths per month) over subsequent months of the occupation since the study was published.

• Iraqi civilians seriously injured: Posted number reflects our estimate, using a conservative, historically-based ratio of 1.8:1 (serious injuries to fatalities) for civilians during wartime.

• U.S. troops killed in Iraq: Based on numbers announced by US Department of Defense and CENTCOM, and tracked by the good folks at Iraq Coalition Casualty Count.

• U.S. troops seriously injured in Iraq: Based on numbers announced by US Department of Defense and CENTCOM, and tracked by the good folks at Iraq Coalition Casualty Count. (According to this article by Salon reporter Mark Benjamin, an additional 25,289 service members had been evacuated from Iraq and Afghanistan for injuries or illnesses, but not included in the official numbers and not included in the numbers presented on this page.)

• Other coalition troops killed in Iraq: Based on numbers announced by US Department of Defense and CENTCOM, and tracked by the good folks at Iraq Coalition Casualty Count.

  1. This particular article is indeed thought provoking. I think there are plenty of people in and around our Nation who have the so called spark you’re talking about. In the last few years I’ve come accross some very dedicated people who actually want to do something good for this nation but the truth is a man who has to feed a family of 6 and earns only Rs 4500 a month has to worry about the “smaller things life before thinking of greater issues”. He is the man who wants a revolution and the one whose earning plenty wants to get immigration to Canada and move out. I think for all of us the Marriot bombing was no doubt an eye opener and for the ones who are still playing ostrich, please Like Rubab says WAKE UP!

  2. Thank you for your comments Ayesha. They mean the world to me and those is whose hearts the passion for pakistan resides awaiting a spark to kindle the flame. I have replied to your email, from our forum, kindly view it. The common man is who we wish to do this for, and it is fairly attainable how I view it. The real question is how far would we go to keep people motivated, to get them involved, to reach out to them. They need inspiration, they need to draw strength from those around. These people have it in them to defy the hunger, their environment and stand together. They have proved it for six decades too long without any returns. With a promise coming from someone who is them, they would indeed rise to the occassion. They must not be undermined. nor should those who leave the country for a better living. They are a great source and work towards making our names heard in corners that knew not we existed. Kindly come forward and be a part of how we wish to touch them. We may not have the healing hand, but we do have a heart that feels and wishes to reach out to touch their lives to provide a cure.

    We await you and all those who have suffered, and have been victims of betrayal on part of those we trusted with our futures. Pay attention to how the address themselves. They are a part of the divide which sabotages our unity. Ther are a “this ist” or a “that ist”. Or belong to a class, or a party or a race. We are just the Nation of Pakistan. We know no divide. We wish to just be lead to the frontiers where we prosper with those aorund us. Remember we are the rising moon to the west. Lets unite and show the way to those, who live in the dark.

    Pakistan Zindabad!

  3. A great Eye Opener…Really good!!!

    Terrorism Has only taken life and happiness of the innocents. In recent clashes in Delhi and Islamabad we have seen what happened.

    To wake up the masses we need a “Dhamaka” that the terrorists have already done!!!!As long as there is no Dhamaka ….no one is going to wake up.In India there is no security enough in Metro cities like Delhi,Mumbai,Kolkata or Chennai.The security only tightens and the police arrests dozens of terrorists only after a terrorist act.!!!…So do we need Terrorists???….for the Dhamakas??

    One more thing…The terrorists do not have any religion. In the name of religion they full fill there deeds.And the Religion gets “Badnami Stamp”.

    In recent incidence a person in Kolkata was picked up in false charge and was asked to pay 1.5 Lakh,failing he would be given a charge of terrorist.To this extent a religion is having bad impression in peoples mind.

    Who is responsible? This masses only or the ministers (a part of masses) or the government (selected by masses). And you are asking to wake up,a wake up call to this dead mass!!!!!……:))))))))))))…lol…..

    However, If one person can wake up he can be an aspiration.A good Eye opener….really good work.

  4. This article is indeed the hard truth which all of us know and feel, however we choose to look the other way, WHY, because our entire nation, (by nation I mean people who could make a difference) are indulged in maintaining their status in the so called fake Pakistani social arena, look at it this way , by realizing the facts and addressing the core issues, rising a voice, we threaten our corrupted livelihoods, whatever people have worked for (legitimate 10% illegitimate 90%) goes up for stakes. Changing the behavior of this country means sacrificing an entire generation in the cause, well, u and me might go for it and think it’s worthwhile but have you thought of those people who work so hard for selfish gains and kickbacks, we house a pandemic of corruption, educated illiteracy, lack of values and we seriously have no direction, our people have a lot of knowledge but lack the capacity to convert this knowledge into wisdom.
    Now coming back to the point, once we have corrected the above negative influences in our society only and only then can we stand up as a NATION presently our international projection is that of a crowed, with a lot of nuisance value.
    Why do we think that the incident at the Marriott is an attack on Pakistan, why wasn’t the attack on POF or any other bombing, which happen on regular basis, considered an attack on Pakistan?

    I don’t believe in conspiracy theories, why? Because any successful conspiracy requires a mole within the conspired society and unfortunately we have an abundance of people willing to play their game at the Nation’s stake, Which brings us back to point no.1, !!!SELFISH GAINS!!!!
    It is a vicious circle one action feeds another…we need to cleanse our society first, and then stand up as a united front against aggression.

  5. Thank you Ambarish. Really appreciate you taking the time out to comment. The real people to blame are we ourselves. Terrorist dont come from some other planet but from within us. it is us who makes them into what they become. It doesn’t matter where in the world they are, or what religion they may claim to belong to, they are, for we failed. When the masses elect people who are sold out, the masses give them the right to persecute and victimize for they serve someone else’s policies and vendettas. Since the policies are enforced and have no affinity to the ground realities, retaliation or unacceptance is only natural. We wage others issues onto our people and expect them to just succumb to it. Its wrong. Unfortunately we also seem to show ignorance and label those who retaliate as terrorists first and then associate religion to it creating a further divide, literraly asking them to think of us as different. Since they are victms to begin with, its a part of their psyche to feel right about their stance and inadvertently we become wrong. The fault lies not in how we label them, or how we define ourselves to be different, but the very first set of actions that lead to their reaction, for the chain then continues.

    So it all lies in our hands, we can manouver, and provided we do so correctly and based on a criterion sensitive to the needs of those aorund us we would never go wrong. for that we require people from the masses and not the ones who can afford to buy them, or rather have enough penetration to access those who we can sell them to.

    If we date things back to where it all began, egos intervene and rationale goes out of the window. We succumb to our own egos not realizing that we serve a greater purpose if we were to rise above it. If its palestine, or kashmir or any other region, it doesnt matter. it all starts with opression and killings. The states have the powers tobuy the media rights and twist it to tilt the balance in their favor and what we see and how the reality is, its the biggest gagreal of all times. To cover one weakness, one mistake, we keep making several, till we have hundreds turn to thousand, and thousands into tens of thousands and by the time millions arrive the foundations are so shaky that we end up collapsing.

    So in short, one needs to feel for the people and not just rely on state fed distortions. One must see that it is at the end of the day, common men, women and children who come under fire and loose their lives. Then we start wroking towards other mistakes to cover our tracks. I am not speaking of one country, one nation or one government. i speak of a global phenomenon, how it all began and the mutated beings that threaten us today, by virtue of planting a bomb or exploding with it, are all courtesy to the tests we run on them.

    I hope we all understand these issues and rise above them for a greater cause, a cleaner environment, where all that survives of us is love and peace.

    Regards….

  6. Another very important thing worth considering is how many people / civilians have the terrorists killed and how many have died in the so called precisions bombings. Who would persecute those responsible for the deaths of a million people. Germany went down for the world believed a 100,000 people were killed in gas chambers. Now we have seen and from their own sources that 1000,000 have lost their lives. Who should we hold responsible for that. We arent in a conventional war? Atleast that is what we hear from these voices that have been surrounding us for the past decade. When will the world see that, when will we open our eyes to it.

    Another things worth looking into is that when we go back to where all these exptremist group started why do we find out that they were subservient to those who today claim to be driving other nations into pursuading them. Why is it that those once useful to them, all of a sudden switch to this extreme. I mean they were fighting their war then, and who knows they are fighting their war now. Who is the ultimate beneficiary?

    Why are we not paying attention. This region is our home. Together with all neighbors involved we have driven away external forces who took us to the brink, why cant we do it again. These people may seem different but have more in common with us then those that claim to have warm hearts towards them and insistent on their well being.

    If the regimes removed were so bad why is it that all this rage broke out after intevention, they sat peacefully, and if at all they had issues they were internal. If they needed to really correct in an innocent manner as they protray today, why not spend half of what they have on the war on those people, fund their country or invest there directly. Perhaps the interest is not to develop them, but they just happen to be on the globe where they are, in the way, obstructing something. Or maybe we have another heinous form of Big Game becoming fast popular with the west.

    Africa remains a laboratory where pharmaceutical companies experiment, asia remains hunting grounds for innocent civilians in the name of welfare. Where are we headed, wake up.

  7. Thank you Nabil and yasser for your valuable comments. I agree that corruption is consuming us, selfish gains being a hurdle in the way of the common man. The rest of the attacks were also attacks on Pakistan and i see your point is very valid. But then we are not drawing a line, we are referring to all attacks from the towers charade to what happend at the marriott. We arent saying that is an attack on us. We are suggesting the attack is to follow, but we dont believe in conspiracy theories do we 🙂

    The outcome is people die, widowers flirt, victims flash photos to gain sympathy, and then beg for money. Do you see the contrast. We have a bunch of people trying to adapt accoding to their intellect to blunders they make. There is no set plan but then puppets are reliant on the puppeteer.

    The reason we write is to ask those who wish to make a difference to get people involved. You cant rely on hefty donations to make things happen. We have to got for a “pay it forward” sort of scenario, motivating each other, or even stressing like children do to get what they want. If a child knows what strings to pull to get the return it wishes, why cant us, together, motivating, reasoning or pursuading each other.

    Just highlighting isn’t the key. Assuming never does any one any good either. Its time to do things. Act insane but keep your focus on the cause. Be passionate, be obsessive, but yet reason and hold yourself accountable. Change requires generations it was mentioned, A revolution a genration. But we are looking for something else. We are looking for that first step. Why cant we do that? Do we not hold ourselves back for our selfish needs. All of us. We hide behind our jobs, our families, our responsibilities etc. But who said this isnt our responsibility. It always was, but we like giving it out to contractors, and its not the highest bidder we vote for, but the better actor respresenting the real bidder.

    Its a classic case of mind over matter. We have to stop contemplating, and come up with a a plan. no accord needs to be signed here. We are not here to clean up anyones mess. We are the mess that has to become a mass, so that we are taken for living beings, who face things on a day to day basis.

    We await your arrival. I mentioned I have found a believer in me. Thats one person. Would you try and find out a believer in you, and bring him along 🙂

    Regards.

  8. Syed – thanks for posting those statistics – they are often neglected. The ‘refurbished’ leadership point you made was great…what better way to describe the series of unpopular leaders the country has had to withstand. However, I don’t understand much else of your commentary..I’m not sure what you mean or who you are referring to when you talk about ‘blood sucking vermins.’

  9. Good Day!

    I am assuming your name’s Lateef so I’ll be omitting the X. We Thank you for sparing the time and writing in response to the article. I for one am a great believer of facts thus they had to be stated. as for not understanding the term “blood sucking vermins”, thats the idea. I want people to think a little, independently, do some research. These are just terms we have heard all our lives. Then I speak of what they have become. The figures I state are courtesy who? And it shall point you in the right direction. Come join our community and give us your valuable feed back. Would look forward to it.

    Best Regards

  10. Thank you Lateef and Salman. I shall be posting that link on our community so all the members there get to watch it. He indeed is informative and many could benefit from his information. In fact I am thinking of asking him to join us.

    Mr. Lateef, you should also watch the link posted by Mr. Salman, it would open your eyes to the blood sucking vermins and many more things.

    Kindly join our community, I shall send both of you a link on your email addresses, soon.

    Regards.

    Regards.

  11. Very good aticle Ahmar. Very well written and an eye opener indeed. i agree with Nabil Andrabi has written. So many innocent lives were sacrificed to get our beloved land Pakistan and look at what has become of it!! Will write a detailed comment soon. BTW, god work on the statistics.

    God Bless!!

  12. Thanks Sarah,

    Really appreciate it. Kindly join us and urge others to do the same. We have a long way to go. This is just the begining.

    Regards

  13. You have opened eyes for the educated who already knew this, in the back of their minds, but like true Pakistanis prefer to close their eyes to the truth. It is the 16 crores Awam, that needs to be educated and propelled to instill faith into a new leadership, as we are constantly, as you so aptly commented, reelecting the same political forces, that come forth to eat us like vermons.

    Terrorism, in any form should be condemned severely. The Marriott incidence has just gone on to show the lack of apathy the higher ups show towards the common man faced with a challenge of trying to protect the echeloens of the nation….politicians and the army!!!

    How is the common man safe???? Why build underpass, overpass and whichever pass you can think of when the common man has no Atta or food or clothing. it annoys me to the hilt when I read the amount allocated by the CM’s or PM for improvement of traffic control or education….do we even know what is the plight of these people???

    Let us pray that young men as yourself show or shed light on such issues and guide forth the coming generations so that we can think fo ourselves.

  14. Dear Seema,

    Thank you so much for your comments. We not only need to do all you suggested but a lot more. We also look forward to patronage from people like you who can motivate many others at various different platforms. We need to be consistent in our beliefs, and need to be more than that whilst convincing those aorund us, there is hope, there will be a change, and we must be the ones kindling the flame. Its a thing ordained, if only we believe. I interact with a lot of youth, some of what I hear disturbs me even more. They shift their loyalties in the name of hope, but when it is shattered it takes away a part of theri personality, that could have helped groom them in manners that could serve us as a nation in the times to come. My heart aches for such youth. These are foundations, Jinnah looked at with hope of a better tomorrow, and today a lot of that is being murdered by elements we elect and reelect. I have experienced such bitterness, I have it partly too, but I also see vigor unfueled, passion unignited and will undirected. All that is required is a spark. At times it hurts when I sense the fear of believing someone, the bitterness that makes it personal, and the lack of direction that adds to frustration. I cant use the word “They”, as we are our own people. Everyone included. We are so we must work towards a common goal. I wish there were more like you and some more I have interacted with courtesy my article, but we need to do more than what this article suggests. A lot more. Come join us in the cause.

  15. I read your articles great work. which ofcourse required alot of effort n i appreciate ur effort..you are 100% right Ahmar that if we will not wake up we will be a slave forever..
    i have no such plans yet in my mind i just wanna say that what ever help you need from my side plz let me know i will always be there to help not exactly you but US..
    take care Everyone Best of luck

  16. Thanks Aysha. I appreciate your taking the time out to comment here. I would be indebted to anyone who wishes to make a difference for our beloved homeland. And there is a lot you can do. We shall discuss this soon on the group and I would appreciate contribution from you and others. Keep motivating others. Do read all that i have written here replying to others, that would give you a fair enough idea.

  17. Remarkable work…. You’ve truly played you’re part of being “the first drop of rain”. But still that’s not all about it we’ve to do a lot more… we have suffered a lot but now it’s the time to take things in our own hands…. And for that matter such kind of motivation is certainly required… Allah bless You.

  18. My heart sighs to hear more feelings like these expressed in your article and to hear more people aware of and daring to say the truth with true figures you mentioned.
    It’s the first time I’m seeing your article, but there seems to be not much activity after October/ November 08??
    I hope nothing stops you from kindling this light of hope…
    I have friends who always worry and only sigh on these issues just like ourselves.. We may label it selfishness, but truth is I’m happy we are not the vampires like rulers of my country to date who live on blood of innocent aveerage person’s blood and sweat.
    Ok we did not dare to lead, but we will be happy to follow if we see a true leader of revolution, a leader who can dare for common man of my country and who can restore and enhance the honour of my beloved country Pakistan.. long live.. and live with honour.. My Pakistan.
