What’s your perspective about Pakistan’s condition as Governor Sindh?
I think Pakistan is going through the toughest time since it was born and I think this is the trial time for Pakistan but khan Sahab has been a challenge accepter whole life and if he accepted the challenge to free Pakistan from financial issues and corruption then I must say he is a strong man because he has faced many challenges, in cricket people use to say he can’t be a fast bowler when he became one people said he can’t be a captain when he was honored with captaincy then he heard that bowling captain can’t make us win the World Cup and the results are in fort you so you see he is person of his word.

What is success according to you?
If you ask it politically if you done something for someone or if you’re on that position from which you can make something better for your nation or your people you can’t describe success as buying a Mercedes or making a big mansion it is according to every person’s perspective and if you want to see actual success than you must follow the most successful person Nabi Pak (S.A.W).
