karachi shook.

did anyone feel the tremor run through about a few minutes ago in clifton? are these only felt around the coastal areas of clifton/defence because from what I have heard, most people from the “other side of the bridge” don’t seem to feel them a majority of times…

    yes i did. honestly after being used to experiencing them in my sleep, these were milder but i got scared. and yes, we feel them thanks to the oyster rocks *sniff*. we live on the sea-bed :(. happened less than seven mins ago.

    Hi Guys,
    I came to know about couple of Doctors who were brave enough to leave for Pakistan along with their Indian and American Doctor colleagues. I tell you guys after hearing what our beloved Pak Army is doing with the people, who out of sheer nationalism and humanitarian zeal, went to Pakistan at their own expense. Not only every step is deliberately taken to enact every possible “red tape” in their way but also create hostile environment to disrupt every possible way to help the masses of needy there. Including a “Farmayeshe program” from Pak army kay Jawan for a free medical checkup from qualified Gora doctors!
    I tell you guys, after hearing the first hand information from the Doctors, I am so frustrated with the “achievements of our Army”. I think, if it continues the way it is, the people who were fortunate enough to survive the earth quake will no longer be fortunate!
    I don’t know what kind of hearts these guys have– I mean this is the Kashmir we had been fighting for last 5 decades. I wonder, if they had been better off with us- for sure we don’t deserve to be claimed as their saviors– which the Illiterate Educators of this nation had been teaching in the schools across this overly populated country — along with other Lies!
    I am also wondering, with military spending being the highest on the expense sheet since last 50 + years, why we are so freaking not ready!! I mean, the whole military is so chaotic and helplessódo we still trust these guys to protect our border. Most of them work more on running after a plot allotment letter in Defense then actually working over their combat skills. Only Allah is going to save us because I do not trust these bastards anymore!
    I am pretty confident that a lot of people are not going to agree with me, which is ok since this is my personal opinion and should not be taken as fact but I am frustrated and I am frustrated by just seeing at we are so hopelessly dependent and not able to do anything for our people. A lot are dieing and a lot will die pretty soonósigh. I am worried that at a time when Nation in general is with high spirits, and with a true sense of patriotism, care, affection, love and respect of the country exists ñ there is no leadership capable to channel this positive energy towards the betterment of Pakistan. Ahh, its so sad and so frustrating!
