  13. Thanks guys for your efforts, yesterday i have shared my opinion in details on PT blog but don’t knowfor what reasons it was not updated .

  14. Dear Readers of PT,
    For the last few weeks I can witness some really active movements and strong steps taken by our youth towards the deteriorating situation persisting in the upper Hunza Gojal.
    The peaceful protests starting right from Gilgit and reaching to Karachi and in the other big cities of Pakistan justify the expediency of the devastating situation and a demand to immediately overcome the ongoing mystery which is going to claim some big losses as has already put us on burning fire.

    Unless and untill we do not move ahead fueling the cause,no one is really going to bother about.

    I really appreciate your efforts mobilizing in the various big cities of Pakistan and demanding for your due rights.

    I hope and wish that things will settle down if the same moves are kept ahead by making many realize about the sufferrings of the dwellers and the future problems.

    God bless you all
