    Huma , my one comment was held for moderation in your last thread, could you please let it go ? if not then could you please tell me what’s wrong with that so that in future I could be more cautious.

    Happy Blogging

    Instead of bloody visiting exhibitions & collections at posh hotels – why visit poors & under represented class(es) ? paying and spending on designer wears which just because of a ‘tag’ increases the value of cloth from Rs.30 to Rs.3000 is not just waste of money , its a sin which you and you alone commit – because just outside these posh hotels and in rural and now in urban Pakistan – people are dying with hunger & cold because of our trends . Kindly help one – share your wealth , share your ideas , share your resources – pls , buy one ‘thela’ for a poor – try somethiing which is worthy – bycott such lavish and selfish exhibitions which ‘divides our society’ – think?

    @Poo Poo – I have not seen your comment, but I wounder why? hmmm let me think ….. Could it be by chance the server finally figured you out as JUNK….

    @Ali – Interesting, You are SOOO concerned about the poor, why not lead by example, first explain what you have done on your part (answer honestly & no BS). I just feel that you are one of those typical drawing room politicians, who brag, boost and negatively crtisize an issue to the death but have little to prove of their own contribution. Offer positive well worded critcism and people will listen, negativity is only treated as JUNK (Ditto POO POO)

    in the long-drawn list of my sins – spending 3000 on something will probably be negligible , in fact it might count as a “positive sin” for lack of a better word.
    ALI – my brother in the Galaxy: Chill . have a coke and a smile .
    you really should visit me in Tatooine sometime -we will go hangout in Mustafar and hook up with some cheap Mustafarian bimbos .

    1. Spending money on your self, particularly on buying clothes is no sin, particularly when you tend to live in a city like Karachi where because of the weather you tend to need clothes by the dozen.
    2. The textile industry employs thousands of people from all social and financial backgrouds, so by no way does buying designer clothes or visiting exhibitions of disgner clothes affect the rich-poor divide, it lessens it if anything.

    Personally look forward to the Yasir Waheed and JJ exhibition most, I so can’t wait.

    Critic , are you Huma ??? I don’t know how does this system work ? do every author gets comment’s copy or only the one who initiate the thread ??? Why do you say that my postings are a junk. I would request my friends in senate to attack trade federation against this trade federation.

    Darthvader , How about ‘Holy Sinner’ ??

  8. Ali Chishti (unregistered) on March 18th, 2006 @ 3:18 am

    @critic – kindly provide me a email address to explain what I contributed – yes, no one likes negatibity and believe me I wish I could says that ‘all is good’ or tune into ‘moderate line’ it would be too easy . thing is , there has to be someone to remind people of ‘ethical ways of leading one(s) life’ , there has to be someone who has to tell you ‘look there another way of doing things – instead of buying a Mercedes why not spend on a Suzuki? if would not only save you money , its would be a automobile plus the main thing is , it would have four wheels like a merc which would ‘act’ and do what merc could do – with rest of money you can go home and spend that money on making a difference’ – obviously , I am not forcing you buy something nor I am saying that all I say is rigth but I am telling you a alternative .

    @Darthvader – get out of this ‘star war syndrome’ – reality is bitter , very awful – it seems you are trying to hide pain –
    @ Zainab Bibi, one said of not buying clothes – i said or should i say suggested of not buying clothes from designer(s) – why waste money on a kurta from deepak parwani when you know for yourself that
    you are paying not for the cloth but for the name ( just one example )
    2. a capitalist last refuge , wasay, people living below poverty line are much more then all the employes of texile sector ( direct and indirect ) – and most of our textile is exported and not consumed in our country –
    kindly clearify following :
    a) why visiting designer clothes or visiting exhibitions lessens depression of mass(es) and lessen rich-poor divide?

    I wish someone tear away all the clothes and burn them all –
    plus why are we as a society so ‘things oriented’? it seems that we are stuck into a huge identity crisis ! may Almight give us guidence –

    I would request my friends in senate to attack trade federation to defend the republic.* in above comment.

    Poo Poo, I’ve checked the comments system THRICE now, and I cannot find your comment anywhere, I did not get a moderation notification, nor is it in the junk comments. And please think twice before you start calling me ‘critic’ and what not – I have no desire whatsoever to curtail your precious freedom.

    Hi Huma, just wondering if you have any business cards or is there a way you can contact those retailers on-line?

  12. Zag (unregistered) on March 18th, 2006 @ 12:13 pm

    Ali: I know your intentions are right, but the way you are going about it is wrong. You are assuming that everyone here besides yourself is a person who has a cold heart and doesn’t think of anyone but himself. Maybe the person you are accusing is doing more than you know or you have done, but doesn’t like to publicize his good deeds over a public forum. Since you know so much about what is good and what is sin, you should also know that it is a sin to do a good deed and then go about publicizing it. And it is also a sin to accuse someone without proper facts. Maybe you should think about it, before making your next comment.

    The second thing I wanted to comment on was your comment “just because of a ‘tag’ increases the value of cloth from Rs.30 to Rs.3000”. This tells me that you are not familiar with textile industry. It should have been better if you had done your homework before making such comments.

    In textiles, the value of the design is worth MUCH MORE than the value of the cloth it is printed on. If a designer is charging Rs. 3000 for his designs, it’s his/her right to charge, because he has worked hard for it. He has worked hard on his handy work so he should have every right to dictate the price he thinks is worth his “mehnat” It’s not like they came into this field overnight and started charging exuberant amount of money for their work. If they had done that, no one would have paid them. They’ve gone through the ups and downs and now are in a position to dictate this price, so more power to them.

    Oh, and I think you should ask a religious scholar about this spending Rs 3000 on clothes is a sin thing. I think if what you have earned is earned through Halal methods, and you have paid Zakat on your earnings, then you can spend the rest the way you want. Correct me if I am wrong, but don’t make up something on your own as far as religion is concerned.

  13. Discreet Madness (unregistered) on March 18th, 2006 @ 1:22 pm

    Spending on the poor beyond what’s mandated (via zakat) is a MATTER OF CHOICE. It’s neither a sin nor an insensitive act. What is yours lawfully, earned neither through cheating nor through stealing is well yes, yours to keep and spend as you wish.

    Indeed it elevates a man to a higher spiritual level when he directs resources from himself to others, but it doesn’t make the rest fall below the benchmark, simply because they’re contributing just what’s required and no more.

    In the drought hit East Africa, 11 million ppl are estimated by UN FAO to be at risk of starvation. Are you down to one meal and three glasses of water a day yet???

    “I wish someone tear away all the clothes and burn them all –

    For God’s sake, again our boy Ali C. is endorsing violence and burning and killing. May the Almighty save us from the likes of him.
