  • ProPakistani is trying to become a Patwari. Most Pakistanis never understand the wisdom of Imran Khan and that is why they criticize. You must be educated enough to understand the wisdom behind his thoughts and decisions.
    Zakir Khan has natural leadership skills and that is why Imran Khan has chosen him.
    As a loyal supporter of PTI we should always defend our leader. Our loyalty will always be there as we trust the abilities of Great Khans.

    • Now people before you start bashing this guy for his absolutely ridiculous argument in defence of “imm the dim”, please learn Something about Sarcasm and Satire !

      • Dude… his supporters are more than capable of making ridiculous justifications glorified in the name of Mr. KHAN
