I traveled by road from Rwp-Karachi and back this Eid in one go, some pointers if anyone wanna travel!
Total distance: 1400km
Total estimated time: 16hr(no break)
Fuel: 9-10k (Honda city)
Toll tax: 1600-1700
Motorway: Rawalpindi-Sukkhur and then there is almost 300km from sukhur till Hyderabad which doesn’t have motorway yet as it is under constructio. Then Hyderabad-Karachi motorway.
Believe me those 300km are more hectic then 1100km on motorway
Rest area: reasonable rest areas are available throughout the motorway but the best ones are till Faisalabad. Rest of the rest areas are not fully developed and hopefully soon they will be really good. U can have tea/coffee/drinks use rest rooms and offer prayers

It’s your responsibility.
"What happened brother. Tell me."
"I am hit."
"Oh come on, a bullet or two can’t harm you. Sending you backup don't worry it will be with you in a few minutes."
This was the wireless communication between two brothers, fighting at the same front securing the flanks of their respective battalions. Major Khalid Majeed of19 Punjab was assigned the task to secure from Shalapalu to Jura
At around 2009-2010, When Asif Ali Zardari was President of Pakistan, he had told the Americans the Mumbai attack was an opportunity for him to "seize control" over the ISI. Yes, our head of state was discussing #thread #Pakistan#Afghanistan#CIA#USA
his internal squabbles with his own state institutions with agents of a foreign government that was subverting the country with terrorists based in Afghanistan. Just two years later, he would go on to pull Memogate with them right after the Raymond Davis incident.
This is why calls for democracy and civilian supremacy ring so hollow with most Pakistanis.
While Generals Kayani and Pasha pressed Hamid Karzai to put an end to the RAW-NDS nexus in Afghanistan,
