Pakistan Zindabad.

Pakistanis should wake and recognise its friends and foes and join hands togather to bring Pakistan back to its glorious past of one Muslim Umma and one wahdat. Please don't kill each other. Our every person is so important to fight togather against the forces which are crippling our country and trying to disintegrate it. Pakistan Zindabad.
