Pakistanis are mistaken if they believe they could over run Kabul and make Karazi escape on a motorbike; he is too grown up for that sort of stint. Americans are miscalculating if they believe they could get Afghanistan on its feet without the help of Pakistan. Afghanistan on its own or with others support would never remain stable and Pakistani support would remain crucial for its stability.

Islam has a benchmark teaching of “not putting extra strain on a soul what it can not bear”. An amazing statement, which embodies the whole dilemma, we face today. I believe from above examples every one of those three women had to take this decision of how much burden she is ready to take.

A raised productivity level would not mean anything if there aren’t sufficient resources available to ship the products abroad.
