Tensions in Lyari after political clashes

I happened to be in the vicinity of Kakri Ground yesterday, not knowing that there had been some political clashes late night on June 2 over an MQM rally to be held there on June 3.

Since i happen to be in the area almost once a month or so, th elack of traffic was visible. Infact, i managed to drive through from Bombay Bazaar to the Sarafa Bazaar in under 2 minutes. Those who go there often know that walking is the fastest way to get around in those lanes. It takes over 10 minutes to pull that drive through.

I asked the shopkeeper, his satirical response ” the political leaders of our nation have decided toi speak to us poor people”. Whay ofcourse, they speak to the poor people, but when they do, they force the shops shut so that the poor man who earns a daily living is starved. what a price to pay for politicians that dont do a thing for you.

So far Lyari has only recieved promises, wheras the rest of Karachi undergoes a make over. Sad.

On a slightly humourous note, heres an interesting image of a closed jewellers shop board.

    right Adnan,
    but unfortunately we still have some blind people who are ready to die for miyan, bibi and specially that Bhai…they are all well known for their looting and corruption but still…
    We as Nation is very good people so we forget and forgive our politicians easily

    Let alone the politicians, we as citizens have never thought about the country Pakistan before doing anything!
    How many times do we actually think that this act of mine is gona benefit or damage the country?
    any answers?
