Today there is only one kind of political parties in Pakistan: the one that promotes the material needs of the candidates and not the izzat-e-nafs of the people of Pakistan. The current political parties of Pakistan put no emphasis on…

Giving The Poor A Chance

"Every party who takes votes from us does it in the name of the poor, but then we get slaughtered." I have often been thinking of this one phrase I hear the most when I am with my people, my marooara of Pakistan. What does it mean? It means…
