Besharam loog wo hotay hain, jo. Kisi kay share ki ay ho ay thread ko kharab karnay ki koshish kartay hain,
Jab aap nay aik dafa apna account delete karwanay ki req ki hay tu, means aap ko Allah nay Tofeeq day di hay kay aap ko zara sa ehsaas hua hay,

But its not fair kay aap dobara say iss duplicate account kay through threads ko khraba karnay ki koshsish shura kara dain..
