  • i have never so many good things happening for our beloved country. This name is so meaningful. it speaks volumes about the change in direction where we do not use the names of political figures but common man and acknowledge their sacrifice. This also shows the world that for us our minorities are also important and their contributions to the country are acknowledged. Imagine if this was PPI or PMLN then the flight name would be Bhutto or Shareef.
