    The sub-moronic particles of politics of pakistan have nothing better to do.

    Lets call it a Circle rather than a Square, firstly!

    .. and Yes Liberty Circle it was, is and should be…

    What matters is what the people call it – and almost everyone calls it Liberty Chowk. In fact, I don’t think it’s even called a Square officially.

    First it was Noor Jehan Road and now BB Chowk! What’s with us Lahoris, can’t we come up with better names? Liberty Chowk is perfectly fine with me.
