This Faraz series of SMS started when the wrong news of Faraz’s death broke out. People started sending some very nice verses of Faraz but when they got to know that the news was not correct, they stayed doing what you can read …
I don’t know where this snapshot has been in the past and why is it out this late, but this is definitely interesting. Musharraf won’t even have a clue that this man will be one of his most blatant and bold critics.
This was probably taken at SKMCH back in 2000/01 when Musharraf was looking for political partners to prolong his rule.

Now we can see through the fog – the artificially created duplicitous fog to misguide the people of Pakistan by the two-faced stance of PPP.

The prime Minister, Gilani himself spent five years in prison under Musharraf’s rule. No party head attended the swearing-in and the members of PML(N) taking oath sported black arm bands to show their defiance …

“Within 48 hours of the signing of the Murree Declaration between Pakistan’s two leading political parties, we yet again have been hit by the magnitude of the internal security challenge we collectively face. The fifth round of post-election suicide bombing attacks has hit Lahore. Over 25 more of our precious Pakistani people have died and many more precious ones from the badly injured too will go. Beginning with the endless spate of 2007 suicide attacks Pakistan is now regularly bathed in blood. There is no redline left to cross now …
