Lawyers’ obverse black day
Those who think the present setup has something to do with democracy are living in the same fools paradise which was created by the American Dictator Mush. The only thing which has improved is that civil society in Pakistan is getting more and more stronger as the folds of feudals/dictators are getting tighter and tighter.
We salute the lawyers for giving our nation the vision to live with dignity and honour.
Keep up the good work.
