By this report, Pakistan’s real face has been exposed to world. Military institutions of state have imposed censorship on the truth by intimidating media houses and journalists and are bolstering their negative policies in this regard.
All civil institutions of Paksitan have surrendered before the military power, are protecting their negative activities and committing abdication from their due duties.
