'enemies of pakistan to be defeated' Special Assistant to Chief Minister Punjab and member National Assembly Malik Muhammad Afzal Khokhar has said Pakistan came into being in the name of Allah the Merciful who would protect it, while the enemies of it would not succeed in their nefarious designs. He stated this while addressing a ceremony here on Sunday. Malik Afzal Khokhar said a sincere and patriotic leadership in the guise of Nawaz Sharif was available for safeguarding the countrys solidarity. He said the politicians disliked by the people could no longer hoodwink them by issuing statements against Nawaz Sharif. He said those who wanted to elect a dictator Pervez Musharraf in military uniform ten times were giving lesson of democracy; in fact they were politically immature for making the national leadership target of aimless criticism. He said the way Shahbaz Sharif provided relief to all segments of the society was a unique example. He said that during the rule of Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi the cultivators of Punjab were exploited, while the people also faced acute type of flour crisis.
