During the last days of PPP government, a voice from Hazara resurfaced demanding a separate Hazara province.

Ali Wazir has posted a video clip on social media showing Punjab Police manhandling some persons. He has craftilygiven a twist to the story by projecting the Pashtuns living in Punjab as the victims. I am sure, he must have been handsomely rewarded by RAW or NDS for this villainous act which has raised the tempers of the Pashtun community. Imran Khan added fuel to fire by giving a color to anti-te Click here to read Full Article
