This Song of Tina Sani will leave every Patriotic Pakistani in Tears
Terrorism is an unresolved issue of Pakistan. In fact sometimes it feels as if it the only obstacle to the success of Pakistan.

Whatever the root cause is, the sufferers are “us”.

The governments that come every season promising security, success, opportunities and many more. They take votes, rule us in whatever way they want, and leave. Then another government come, repeat the same, and leave. It looks like the whole musical chair of politics of Pakistan is programmed on loop.
Kitni aankhoon ko nazar khaa gai budkhuaoon ki
Khuwaab kitney teri shahraoon pe sangsaar hoe
