Army Headquarter - دو ہزار چار سو پچاس ایکٹر - Disgusting!!

Salient features:
- BIGGEST army headquarter in the WORLD
- 2.4 (arub) dollars estimated cost
- Being built on one of the most expensive lands in the world, without a penny being spent on the land ownership

Out of the 2,450 acres of the new army head quarter being planned in the heart of Islamabad, only 200 or so acres are planned for the actual offices, so what is the rest of the area for? What is the cost? Who is going to pay for all of this? Find out:

But the only sane question is: Isn't it the height of arrogance on the part of the planners for this disgusting mistake of another army settlement, especially when we are a nation so poor, so looked down upon, so torn, so lost? Doesn't army already enjoy all the benefits which most people in this country can't even think about except for a handful of people? In case Pakistan has such high figures in the treasury, shouldn't it be spent in less disgusting fashion?
