Suck more sugar cane?

The only solution to all PAKISTAN ISSUES is to kill all the politicians under covert operation so a new blood could take their place. These politicians are so corrupt that they cannot even think honestly. May Allah Bless them with righteous thinking. There are no doubt in my mind that rulers are like populace even then I have a faint hope.

Violence in Karachi is not run by PPP, MQM or ANP, there are a group of people who have ties with foreign agencies mostly from India, Afghanistan and Israel who are behind all these violence/bomb blast/killing/suicide bombing in this mega city of Pakistan, their purpose of doing so,just to destroy Pakistan''s economy.

i think this is a secterian based target killing or a act of Lashker e jhangvi or TTP

Probably this has something linked with Imran Khan''s upcoming Karachi visit.

MQM is a shit damn in Pakistan produced, governed and run by the Agencies of Pakistan to destablise the Civilian Governements and it is playing its role well for the purpose it is created.

Last time I heard, Zardari was in Karachi, it does not matter, he & his family are safe & sound. For MQM , what you practice , comes back to bite you.
