Is Aamir Liaqat a villain?

Aamir liaqat has been turned into a villain overnight. Pakistanis do not believe in half measures. First you declare him a saint and now he is the biggest devil out there. He was never an aalim in the first place but the people adored him. We need to look at our own actions and decide if we were wrong in the first place. May Allah help us in making sensible choices.

Pakistan independence day

Few more years like this and there will be nothing to save.

Many Pakistanis and people of other ethnicities have lost their life's work. A shop keeper whose shop has been looted and burnt to ground has nothing else to survive on. Tragic, very tra…

American Credit Downgrade

By Sikander Hayat

It is amazing to see the mighty like USA getting downgraded by the standard and poors rating agency. Amazing in the sense that this is something which seems so impossible and outlandish. I was at work yesterday when I first checked on my mobile that markets all around the world are having a fit. From Asia to Europe, everyone rushed to sell, resulting in major losses for all major stock markets.
