Graves of Dulah Drya Khan & Hisamudin Rashdi demolished by Minister
By Aziz Narejo

Karo Kaarrii (honor killing) is Arab cultural import we should reject it. It doesn’t belong to Sindhi culture.
Pakistan is at war from within and without… The US is attacking our borders. The Pakistan Military is engaged in a relentless operation. 2,000 civilians have died in the last year alone. About 800,000 have been displaced in the Northern areas.
