Not many months ago, we as a nation got our history changed and re-written by nothing but a piece of paper. A will as they called it of a leader who knew that her time was near. But the interesting thing is that nobody in our supposedly free world ever thought about it.
At times, I think whether it was our leaders in the ruling party who are to be blamed. But then I realize, whats their fault? They did what they deemed best for their party and even for their political careers (and yeah for Pakistani nation too!).
