Human beings have a bad habit called – greed – and the more power and wealth they get their desire to become further rich or stronger will never end. A mother can never see her child in pain and difficulty. She will do her best to see her son growing healthy and wealthy. She likes the best for her son rather for herself.

My topic is not regarding a human or one particular person. It’s about a national issue which was raised years back and has reached at …

On August 14th 1947, Planet Earth established its first terrorist factory. Soon after British Colonial rule in the Indian subcontinent came to an end the nation of Pakistan was founded.

BY LUAVUT ZAHID
Conceived out of the great Hindustan, the Land of the Pure is but a child given birth to by the British occupation. Just as the British helped carve out this nation from the body of the beast they had managed to tame, they similarly also helped carve out a nation called Israel.

In both cases there were riots, there was violence, there were protests. These were not decisions people took lying down. These were not decisions many agreed with. These were, however, decisions that stuck. These were …
