Khuda nay ajj tuk us qom ki halut nahi badli, naa ho khyall jis ko apni halut badulnay ka.

It is so sad that we are very ignorant people. Whole Punjab was suffering because of load shading but he does not realize that and now the whole country. May Allah forgive us and keep this nation safe, we are getting punished in this world by our own people.
