There are many people in this world who desire to stand and take a step, and there are people who desire to see the world and their loved ones once.

Muniba Mizari is indeed an iron lady of Pakistan but the recent controversy after commenting on her past marriage has affected her popularity alot. I believe that if you become a tv personality the person should not bring their past issues into light as it only create problems for them apart from gaining sympthies.

Ms. Mazari's life didn’t end on a bad divorce. Most the people in our society believe that once divorced, a woman can never be successful, that a woman's life is bond to her man and she cant hold any ground without him. Muniba has proved them all wrong.
