  2. Personalities like NS are born in centuries. GB region would proud of its son – a living legendary, who gave hope and inspiration to the youth, 1st in politics and now through summiting every new peak of honour.
    Lecturing in universities of world repute itself is a big honour, that leaders like Banazir’s stature did. I join Nur Momad to see NS in his highest position for serving this country of failed leadership.
