@mosharrafzaidi @thenews_intl Sir, I think the Afghans are doing a splendid job at demonizing themselves in Pakistan. As a Pashtun, I don't know if I would ever be able to trust an Afghan again.

@mosharrafzaidi @thenews_intl Refugees have completely change the demographics of our country..... they're based across the country without any proper checks and regulations, commit crime and find it easy to go back to Afghanistan. Pls tell me if this isn't true.

@mosharrafzaidi @murtazasolangi @thenews_intl Solid piece. Haven’t felt so good about the country in a long time. Let’s see how long it lasts.
Don’t agree re dual nationals if they have pledged allegiance elsewhere. They should just shut the fuck up and send more remittances. Enough qualified Pakies.

Zaidi sb none has said overseas Pakistanis are bad people or they shan't have a say. Constitutionally, no foreigner has the right to be an MP or Civil Servant.

Will the UK, US or any Western state allow you to contest elections on Pak passport or let you serve in civil service?
