Amazing isnt it, everyday people die in Pakistan, everyday there are explosions but it seems to me that the authorities do nothing. All I see in the news is political leaders chasing court battles against each other whilst the country has becaome the most backward and violent in the world. Shame on you. Majority of Pakistanis are also so oblivious to all the violence, they should come out on streets and oust the authorities immediately.
