There is a lot good about Pakistan and it's people that is rarely mentioned amidst all the doom and gloom. We should highlight our positive contributions much more to give the world a greatly needed balanced view.

If the Ummat means anything at all then it's a pleasure to serve our sisters in places like Sudan.
