  • oooh finally D’Trump provided 10 Billion dollors to india to cancel all types of business and cancel all project with China,
    but (Google) is just a name to use.

  • Imran Khan has isolated India on all world forums and this is the fruit of this isolation by the Great Khan. No company wants to invest in India and they dont have toilets. But all countries are dying to invest in Pakistan ( again thanks to Great Khan).

    • “Countering India’s Efforts to Isolate Pakistan”
      He never isolated india on all world forums, he just prevented pakistan from getting isolated.

    • Pakistan’s biggest threat is Nawaz Sharif, Zardari and their supporter Patwaris and Jialas. NAB is taking action against them. Once corruption will be gone then Pakistan will be moving forward better than India.

      • Guys it looks like PTI lads are the real patwaris, India has more poverty and more corruption than Pakistan, I think you guys have forgot the recent Indian Airforce French Raphael scandal.

        The main reason they are still progressing is because they don’t support their leaders blindly. Rather the youth is more focused to take the future in their hands atleast on the ground to work in India for India for better economy.

        You guys are keyboard warriors tell me how many skills you have acquired related to professional life over the last year? I have worked and studied with many Indians, you’ll find them studying hard and working on polishing their skills all the time. Just search a math or programming related problem on YouTube / Stackoverflow and you’ll find triple the indian numbers as compared to Pakistani ones

        • You guys are corrupt in yourselves.

          Fix your internal corruption, you’ll find national corruption disappear InshaAllah

  • We have to seriously work on our youth to bring them out of politics and work on their skills before it is too late.

    Muslims are getting lazy day by day while we should be the hard workers who should be at forefront of Technology and other sectors
