Some days back, Pakistan was in chaos, because the real public of Pakistan was on roads, government authorities refused to control them, government, military and America bent before the ocean of people of Pakistan finally we got the decision which was desired by the all first, second and third grade citizens of Pakistan.
When you will watch Geo TV, it is continuously thanking the various forces like military, government and America for the honour which they have paid to the people of Pakistan, majority of justice loving citizens were form Punjab, I remember the days like 12th may,18th October and so many other days when there were the huge crowds of people even two fold than the last two days gatherings, they were not honoured but they were bathed with blood by the same Establishment which is too much polite today, i don’t find the reason except they (Sindhis, Balochis, Pashtuns) are third grade citizens not so heavier as the current were, nobody of them was the relative of any personnel of Establishment.
So establishment troops were free of any hesitation to fire at any body who comes in the way of their guns’ barrels, we (Sindhis, Blochis & Pashtuns) are the third grade citizens, we need to suicide or stand up for the gross route revolution.

.. It is a war fought on pragmatic para meters not on our ethnic emotions. It would have been a good decision had it been taken timely (soon as the PPP govt was installed), but it was held back to brew creating enemies among the friends (like Aitzaz Ahsan, Rashid Razvi etc are friends of Sindhis). I saw some of the friends expressed paranoid that Aitzaz is hatching a conspiracy against Sindhis, though he was not there.
And now what is good about decision of reinstatement of CJ! It is not taken on principle, it has been forced by Army, America and mob. We lost moral grounds, allowed Nawaz Sharif Saheb who became hero at our cost…

How the enlightened nations feel concerned about the worth of their precious natural wealth and preserve them under any cost; the file photo of Lake Baikal appeared in Dawn (March 14) is a best example of such expression.
Lake Baikal, located in Siberia, the present Russian Federation also known, as the “Blue Eye of Siberia”: is the deepest and the largest of freshwater lakes in the world by volume. It contains more water than all of the North American Great Lakes combined.
