      at present Pakistan could not survive without foreign aid. Instead of spending foreign aids in military purpose Pakistan must properly spend the aids in education, health and infrastructure

    FIRST Pakistan, remove politics from public institutions.

  4. Pakistani says:

    Work for the country n nation not for their own personal motives, from public to government, new leadership required, zero to less American influence, stand on your own feet no American aid means no American influence, stop drones attacks , stop army action wherever its happening.
    And let the verdicts of judiciary should be respected by government.
    make the country as per the speeches and aspirations of the founding father Quaid-e-Azam Mohmmad Ali Jinnah.

    Nothing is lost, but we as nation need to work smart and hardly and honestly. no one will come to our help including China or US, its just we the people could help our own self n bring ourself out of this mess which are responsible.

    Pakistan Zindabad!

    Army’s budget should be cut by 50% and proceeds diverted to education. School curriculum should be changed to secular international and best man to do that is Dr Pervaiz Hoodbuoy. State and mosque be separated. There should be uninterrupted democracy for decades, which will bring in transperancy, rule of law, human rights and freedom of thought and action.
