Almost an year back, following the links on the Google search results for ‘Baluchistan Geography’ I happened to visit a blog titled Gedrosia.

Iftikhar Chaudhry took oath on PCO in 2002 and now rejected the PCO in 2007?

It was anti-constitutional, anti-state and clearly against the rights and wishes of the people of Pakistan. Furthermore, the PCO of 2002 and the oath of office order were given indemnity by a two-thirds majority in both houses – the 17th constitutional …

لمحوں کی طرح کبھی گوا رہے ہوتے ہیں وہ ہم کو
وہ ستمگر ہیں انہیں …

Illegally detained and tortured countless fellow students and citizens
Allowed armed pseudo-student bodies to control academic activities in major universities while suppressing student unions
Failed to meet projected economic growth & development targets
