I happened to visit mazar-e-quaid yesterday, because I hadn’t been there for a while and I believe everyone should go there once in a couple of years. Besides being able to shot some pictures of the place, I also visited the museum where Mr. Jinnah’s belongings were being exhibited. I was highly impressed. Mr. Jinnah lived a high profile life. Everything from his dresses to his crockery were of high quality. He was a man of high standards and it shows from his lifestyle.

I also noticed that the mazaar served as a dating spot. Don’t know what to say about it other than that the couples do need a safe place for romancing and there couldn’t be a better place than the shadow of the tomb of the father of the nation.

    Mazar-e-Quaid as a dating spot – hilarious – but then again the only decent park in khi. Hillpark is also a hotspot for romacing couples.

    the biggest dating spot is safari park i think. that’s because nobody goes there anymore.

    At least our quaid would be happy that his final resting place is being used as venue for romacing and not indicting violence and hatred.

    It would be one of your fav places if you are a exercise enthusiast and enjoy fitness walking.

    Safari park would also be the worst, cuz i think patrolling police would easily be able to catch someone on a date there, and then you know how it is with our police, they just need an excuse to mint money….

    Hill park and Agha Khan hosiptals mass of grassland was pretty popular as a dating joint 10 years ago, but now people have become more openminded about it. I have seen people dating all over the city now.
    Living out of the country for 12 years now(even though I was born and raised in khi),every year when I come back to visit, the city and its people seems to advance some more…its sad in some ways

    It absolutely baffles me (and also pissess me off) to see that the cops in KHI would step into your privacy just because you are out with your loved one having a nice time.

    This is not western rhetoric from me but i have lived 26 of my 30 years in Karachi and i know the city. Why can these freaks let people do whatever they want as long as they are not breaking the law…if you have money and connections, you go loose and if you dont, you get screwed.

    Speaking of dating spots, during my visit to Karachi last summer, I had visited the PAF museum. One could see a number of couples ‘under the wings’ of the now mothballed jet fighters.

    :) As someone said earlier….”let love prevail”
