Pakistan is democratic and independent country and previous governments issued identity cards to the people without proper investigation. The incumbent government is scrutinizing all such documents and will invalidate fake and fraudulent papers. The government will take action against people having invalid documents and deport them. This will help eradicating terrorism and lead to prosperity in the country. Terrorist’s hideouts have been wiped out of Pakistan and acts of terrorism have decreased to a considerable level. Without proper investigation, you cannot investigate terrorists and criminals.
Mushtaq A. Mehar (Former Ambassador)

Also, Saudi Arabia is an important regional country. Since the independence, Pakistan established strong ties with Saudi Arabia. After 1970, Saudi Arabia has helped Pakistan in many ways.
