Dear Sir, Can you advise Imran Khan not to make unwise offers to PML N like resignation for 30days. This has not only disappointed millions of patriotic Pakistanis but also gave a reason to the corrupt Govt to dominate the talks. He should be more careful in deciding who he send for talks with Govt. Many people are worried that his advisors are not guiding him correctly. Best wishes, Dr. A Iqbal

Sheikh Sahib, yesterday on a talk show you gave a very good example of a decision by a judge to cut a baby in half when two women claimed the baby as her own. The real mother cried out to let the other woman take the baby so long as the baby lived. But what stopped you from revealing the name of the judge-- Ali ibn Abi Talib
