Political and social activities of people all over world have reduced to nothing. They are quarantined in their homes in order to save themselves from lethal coronavirus which has wrecked havoc all over world. Overseas Pakistanis amid all this are more concerned about their safety and even are looking towards their Pakistani friends to heed to their attention.
Pre-coronvirus world was quite interesting especially with regard to social activities. The campaigns of Kashmiris freedom fighters were at its peak. Ch Muhammad Luqman and many other Kashmiri leaders like him vow to carry on their struggle once international developments pacify.
Government of Pakistan amid all this is attracting positive and negative response. Those overseas who have their foreign nationalities are at peace in their homes but those who are living in foreign soils alone or are struggling to get their foreign nationalities are suffering in the hands of political and social upheavals. The peace of mind and heart of their kith and kin in Pakistan has lost and they are vociferously looking towards government to take action.
