    Seriously, is there no other newspaper in Pakistan apart from DAWN?

    Why this anti Pakistan newspaper is quoted so often here on PDF?

    Good news for Mianwali region though!

    Ya ALLAH tera shukar hai for the reserve. Now we are talking. We desperately needed gas reserves and the oil reserve will help our economy a lot. Good news for mianwali. Should look in adjoining areas as well if there are any other untapped wells.

    We should waste a second and start extracting the resources pronto as the people and the country desperately needs it.

    The best resource for the development of a country is its trained and educated popuation.

    Even though things like minerals can help a tiny bit, but Japan, Germany, most of the Western countries have shown us, it is ultimately the people who are the greatest asset of a nation!

    maybe your politicians are Waiting for the Saudi wells to go dry in yr 2100, then they will start pumping oil, and sell @ 1000 USD a barrel.

    see
    they are forward thinking visionaries, not morally corrupt thief's which many of you call them

    Fortunately for Pakistan, there are no large oil reserves in Pakistan. Moderate gas reserves for domestic consumption (not sufficient for export) exist. There are large areas of Pakistan which have not been explored and there is high probability to find natural gas reserves in good quantity.

    there are countless dailies for each an every city, but DAWN is the #1 most famous ever since it was founded by the great man Jinnah himself. most parents encourage their kids to read dawn to practice/improve their english and once that becomes a habit it carries on.

    Yes it was founded by Quid-e-Azam and used to be great newspaper. Even I used to have a regular hard copy.

    But that was before it was overtaken by foreign NGO funded journalists, owners and editors etc. Now for years, I have stopped reading this anti-Pakistan mouthpiece. There is nothing Pakistani about it anymore, apart from the "Founded by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah".
