Current Highlights

The Pakistan We Want !
The Nation's Voice

We seek a Pakistan where the universal principles of honesty, transparency, trust, equity and justice dominate in the lives of its people and the working of its government and the state institutions. We strive for the making of a Pakistan that is safe, secure and a progressive country free from extremism and terrorism, with choices (in education, health care and retirement) abound; where taxes are fair, and comprehensible; where everybody has the opportunity to go as far as their talents take them; where government concentrates on its core functions, recognizes its limits and shows favor to none, where law and justice dominates; where minorities, rich and the poor; weak and strong; men and women are treated equally and without any discrimination. Where the people are aware and conscious of their moral, social and ecological duties and responsibilities to keep their country clean, safe and a better place, for our children and our future generations. We propose policies, recommendations and implement projects, which assist in accomplishing these things.
