its a dream to kick them out of Pakistan, right now we are not facing mere militants, we are facing an ideology. Its important to understand the ideology and scratch it from our society.. that is more important. May Allah bless Pakistan!

Lock him up and throw away the key. Nobody should be allowed to make a parallel government in the country.
