  1. We don’t know about America, who gave the power to US to interfere in our country’s regulations. If Saeed Hafiz threat for you it doesn’t mean we should keep arresting him forever. Supporting India you can’t make us fool anymore, so as much as possible keep your mouth shut. Saeed Hafiz is a great asset of Pakistan and we are glad to release him.
