Azaad Wine Shop

An institution by now in Karachi and perhaps the most famous of all the liquor stores aka wine shops in the city, Azaad seems to be the place where half of Defence and Clifton make a stop every Saturday night. What I particularly like about the place is its egalitarianism: you don’t need to shell out a couple of thousand to a bootlegger nor do you have to wait to chill your beer. And best of all it reveals the demand for alcohol in this country, making a mockery of Bhutto’s self-serving ban in 1977.

    Very sad.

    Could I get the address of the store please? Thanks! (Any risk of getting caught by police while purchasing the booze?)


  4. SWA (unregistered) on July 29th, 2006 @ 10:52 pm

    I think until most of our society is more educated, the prohibition ban should remain. Otherwise, it will add to a lot more crime in our cities that are already teeming with uneducated people with no social knowledge. Allowing booze legally would only serve to increase cases of domestic violence, crime, and shoddy behavior.


  5. SWA (unregistered) on July 29th, 2006 @ 10:53 pm

    not to mention it will increase traffic accidents due to drunk driving.


  6. Poo Poo Head (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 12:51 am

    CY , you sound very proud of going there ?? Don’t you? Alocohol is “Haram” very clearly in religion so I guess it should remain ban for ever. SWA so your definition says that educated people are allowed to drink :-) ??


  7. Mohammed Riaz (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 1:51 am

    alcohol is forbidden in islam i,m aware that all you muslim brothers understand that regarding NEW TO KARACHI SHAME ON YOU ,SHAME ON YOU ,SHAME ON YOU

    Drinking or abstaining from alcohol is something personal, as is religion and one’s relationship with God. But I suppose its futile saying that here.

    Getting back to the topic:

    Cy, I agree with you on the subject – the best part is seeing the policemen enjoy a cool one too in the middle of the day :P


  10. Devout Muslim (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 2:28 am

    When will the faith of a good Muslim be strong and confident enough so he wouldn’t be bother by someone else drinking? And how long we Muslims will keep imposing our morality on others instead of looking internally and keep striving to be a good Muslim. Live and let live. In other words mind your own fucking business.

    NO i disagree,not live and let live, as a muslim it is your duty to stop others (especially muslims) from doing forbidden acts,so it is your fucking business.I cant believe in karachi they are even allowing such stores to open…what is this world coming to..What we going to see next? Adult sex stores?

    @Raja Khan a reminder: Your badshahat of your RAJ is within the four walls of your home so you can be a macho mullah and preach all want to your family members ONLY. Rests of the members in this community don’t need any advice from a fanatic thug like you.

    Welcome to the enlightened, moderatead, going towards the dig, Pakistan.

    Those who say religion is a personal think, they don’t know what religion (islam) is.


  16. Mubashir (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 8:33 am

    Yes, alcoholism is sin, no doubt, but we have bigger issues at hand like Muslim killing a Muslim for political reason, we selling our next generation’s future, Brain Drain in search of better future, lying, bribery, cheating, backstabbing and turning away from rest of truths.
    Mohammed Riaz Sahib, preaching is a big responsibility. As Hazrat Michael Jackson once said “start with the man in the mirror” why don’t we start with that first and make sure the person we see in the mirror is exactly like how we want to see others.


  17. Asif (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 8:39 am

    As Muslims, we are neither required nor allowed to apply the law to someone who decides to drink alcohol or smoke weed behind closed doors. Doing it in public, blatantly defying Islam, is something else and warrants action.

    There is a consensus among scholars that just as drinking alcohol is prohibitted in Islam, so is serving or selling it. As such, in my opinion the government should not give licqour permits to Muslims. It may give permits to non-Muslims, and if Muslims (or non-Muslims) choose to buy and consume it dicreetly, its their business and they will be accountable to God for their actions.

    However, as Muslim, it IS our business when another Muslim is doing something wrong. In some cases force is required. At other times, it is our responsibility to remind, advice and warn.


  18. Mohammed Riaz (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 9:43 am

    Just like Mr Raja Khan has mentioned it is our duty to try and refrain and our fellow brothers from doing wrong. So DEVOUT MUSLIM if you were to see from wrong happening in your own home you would try to rectify it. So it is your FUCKING BUSINESS YOU IDIOT

    However, as Muslim, it IS our business when another Muslim is doing something wrong. In some cases force is required. At other times, it is our responsibility to remind, advice and warn.

  20. Devout Muslim (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 12:01 pm

    @Mohammed Riaz: “Refrain our fellow brothers from doing wrong”

    I think you are forgetting that Pakistan is one of the most corrupted nation on this planet( I know, I know truth hurts). And somehow a hardworking fellow Muslim takes a drink after a hard days work and not bothering anyone in the process, not raping any woman, not taking any bribe, not ruling the country illegally, seems one of the important issues of the day for you.

    You need to examine your priorities. I think you got you head stuck up your ass.


  21. IllusionFS (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 12:01 pm

    Islam is not about force, it is more about intentions. Look at Dubai, they have got mosques, they have liqour, its upto you to decide. Why do you always need a dunnda (a stick)? (either to restrict yourself or someone else)

    And I am not doubting Cy’s intellectual abilities, I am sure he posted about Azaad because he wanted to hear the debate.

    I am all for Huma, Devout Muslim & Mubashir. I have seen many devout muslim (presumably) Pakistanis drinking free alcoholic drinks on their international flights just because its free. How cheap?

    How come shopping at Azaad is a sin but enjoying ‘BHUNNG’ is ok?


  22. karim S (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 1:47 pm

    “How come shopping at Azaad is a sin but enjoying ‘BHUNNG’ is ok?” Very good point.

  25. Poo Poo Head (unregistered) on July 30th, 2006 @ 8:35 pm

    Illusion , you okay ? Did any say one here “bhung” was okay ? Who has told you that islam is about freedom ?? Islam asks you to follow certain rules simply. And for people like Huma , CY I have no problem you drinking , doing what ever pleases you but come on dont do publicity of such acts or nor do act that you do think they are right. Do you know it sounds like a 16 year guy smoking and feeling that it looks “cool” but actually it does not. Showing off about alochol and 420 is not cool at all. It just shows that how weak you are. But then its your life, go and f*ck it , who cares. We are not judging you, just letting you know that doing publicity of such things is not acceptable in our society.

  28. Poo Poo Head (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 12:12 am

    You know CY , You lost the plot. Irrespective of where are we , you should concentrate on the arguments. This is old Pakistani trade, we donot listen to arguments but start dicussing the person.Do you think that being in US takes away our right to preach good things ??? You say it hypocricy ? I think we are much better muslims because we do not need permit to get alcohol and still we avoid it. Come on kid. learn some thing before you start posting arguments on public forums.

  30. sensible (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 4:26 am

    This is a verse from the Holy Quran. I am including three different translations.

    022.041
    YUSUFALI: (They are) those who, if We establish them in the land, establish regular prayer and give regular charity, enjoin the right and forbid wrong: with Allah rests the end (and decision) of (all) affairs.
    PICKTHAL: Those who, if We give them power in the land, establish worship and pay the poor-due and enjoin kindness and forbid iniquity. And Allah’s is the sequel of events.
    SHAKIR: Those who, should We establish them in the land, will keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and enjoin good and forbid evil; and Allah’s is the end of affairs.

    This means that we should frobid evil whether committed by a muslim or non-muslim. We should preach the good and leave it to Allah after that because its only HE who can put the good in the hearts of others.

    Its our duty to stop this wine store or atleast raise a voice against it and then leave the rest to Allah.

    Also it should be noted that all the people who are saying that this wine store is a good inclusion and it should be allowed for non-muslims without even letting them know that alcohol is a HARAM are wrong according to the verse.


  31. Wahidi (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 4:27 am

    Im surprised to see people actually justifying drinking using other evils and wrongs in the society!!…..and please there are two types of wrongs in Islam…..one that is individual…..and the other includes social wrongs….Drinking, Gambling, Bribery, Killing, And Adultery are some of the social wrongs…..

    and Islam does not stop you from stopping others from doing wrong….Although it encourages you to stop them….You can’T bring me a single Ayath or hadith that prevents you from stopping others from evils…..so dont tell us that we can’t stop you…stop giving your justifications…..you’ve been reminded that its an evil…you dont care….go to Hell!!….And please refrain from telling us that we live abroad and crap….I did not come down here to listen to that….I have easy access to both girls and alcohol here but i refrain from both!!…so stop taking out frustrations from your self-conscious perceptions!!….

    Could someone please post the address of this place? Thanks


  33. mansoor (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 11:37 am

    I chose not to comment on this topic… but now i think i might as well… alcohol is very much a part of this city, and if people wish to put a blindfold over their eyes, then thats very much their own wish. Not seeing (or talking about) it doesnt make it go away. The fact that there are over 30 to 50 ‘wine shops’ in karachi, which are licenced to sell alcohol by the govt. doesnt make turning a blind eye to it a good option.

    Instead of tacking any sort of root cause, all we do is force prohibition! The typical mullah way… BAN EVERYTHING!

    By the way, i agree this the ‘islamic republic of pakistan’ (all sarcasm intended) but why do we have to be so controversial over the rights of minorities here? Christians arent banned from alcohol.. neither are hindu’s or the myriad of other communities which make up quite a bit of this beautiful city! Why deny them the right?

    Make the controls tighter on the ppl selling it, instead of on the ppl buying it.


  34. bublee (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 6:18 pm

    When our Muslim “leaders” stop drinking, so will the nation that immitates them!!

    Is Pakistan an Islamic state?

    Think about the question very carefully before writing the answer. I have studied the topic in fascinating detail… any viewpoints welcome ;)


  35. Sana Farhan (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 7:28 pm

    My question is Y NOT BAN IT???
    I would go further saying that y not even Ban ciggarettes, gutka, drugs nd all that????
    Leaving the religonous issue a side!!Y would anyone want access to poison???Okay!!SLOW POISON!!But atleast haramful to one using it nd the people around that person!!One way or thi other!!!
    and for ur kind info!!!Drinking in any culture is looked down upon even in Christianity nd Hinduism!!!!!

  37. Abbas Halai (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 9:10 pm

    this conversation here has been pure hilarity. as a non-drinker i fully support alcohol as a driving force of the karachi economy. it’s not going away. not will it. good post cy. mansoor, thanks for helping make sense to others. i think people in karachi still have no clue what brainwashing is all about.


  38. kidal (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 9:18 pm

    Just to add to Sana Farhan’s point. Alcohol is a major problem in the west (health, social, financial, psychological). Its consequences are far reaching and can cause many tragedies from car accidents to broken families. No one and I mean no informed person can argue against the devastating effects of alcohol.

    For the uninitiated, alcohol was prohibitted in the US in the 1920s. The famous Kennedy’s and Canada’s Bronfman family are among those who made their fortune during those years by smuggling and selling alcohol illegally (known as bootlegging). The only reason it is still legal in the West is because alcohol manufacturers (along with cigarette manufacturers) are among the highest corporate tax payers and thus a major source of income for governments.

    Those of you who are arguing in favour of legalizing the sale of alcohol are either too ignorant about its effects; or are too obsessed with freedom, democracy, tolerance, blah blah blah. These are buzz words that sound nice and noble, but cannot and should not be applied at all times and in all situations.

    We need to reflect and dig deeper into issues before forming our opinions.


  39. YO YO (unregistered) on July 31st, 2006 @ 10:45 pm

    We should elaborate more with REASON why Islam has prohibited Alcohol. The discussion always becomes bitter with both sides going to extremes. With all the problem history of Alcohol it does not stand much chance against common sense and reason.

    But if you, or others, are going to patronise those based in Karachi because of some messed up interpretation of what Pakistan was meant to be … well, then I’ll call you out on your claims. Of course you’re welcome to say and post whatever you like … likewise, respect my right to dismiss you (I mean that generally) if you want to preach to me.

  43. Shiraz (unregistered) on August 1st, 2006 @ 4:32 am

    Why are we blaming everyone??? You can’t blame the one who sells it nor the one buying it. The only person you should blame is yourself if you are so weak that you can’t even hear the argument about it. If any of you are Muslims then you should have it in you to control yourself whether you want to drink or not to drink. If we can’t control even that then why bother arguing about it. We are all smart enough to know what we are doing. So, to each its own way. At the end of it all we will all have to answer only for ourselves and no one else.


  44. Poo Poo Head (unregistered) on August 1st, 2006 @ 7:03 am

    I guess people here have lost the plot. No one is saying that one should not drink, if you want to buy , buy it. if you want to drink , go for it but please don’t do publicity of such places. Its not about controlling one. There are many minors in society and drinking should be dealt with severity. Most of the people would just drink to look cool . So pity.


  45. alybaba (unregistered) on August 1st, 2006 @ 10:40 pm

    Alcohol is not haram. Please read the Quran. The word haram or its conjugation is not used, nor is a warning of hellfire included. The word used is avoid.

    This is the sad story I’ve to encounter when I first moved to the US. Here in this competitive world some Pakistanis are nothing and when they come to realize this they have to hide behind religion. Now I have no problem with people who think religion is ones personal matter but we all know it doesn’t work that way. I’ve encountered some who marry more than one time. Since it’s not allowed in western world, they divorce their wives legally and take use of govt. handouts which is usually for unfortunate women and kids (paid by tax payer’s money in North America and Europe). They use religion for every bad deed even they hit their women and say it’s allowed. Now they are corrupting young minds by saying Hijab is mandatory in Islam. So my concern is they only use Islam for their benefit.

    My question is if it is for you to tell others about Islam then please do something about the hunger and illiteracy in the Muslim world.

  49. Understand! (unregistered) on August 4th, 2006 @ 8:05 pm

    @ALL of you!

    kindly revise your understanding of the Quran. It is best you refrain from producing your own interpretations as you are not a scholar of Quran or Hadith. To understand the rulings of Alcohol as explained in the Quran refer to Qurtubi, Ibn-Kathir and Maududi.

    Surah Al-Maida Verse 91:(translation)

    005.091

    YUSUFALI: Satan’s plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?

    PICKTHAL: Satan seeketh only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of strong drink and games of chance, and to turn you from remembrance of Allah and from (His) worship. Will ye then have done?

    SHAKIR: The Shaitan only desires to cause enmity and hatred to spring in your midst by means of intoxicants and games of chance, and to keep you off from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. Will you then desist?

    I will paste a tafsir from Maududi so that you understand completely that alcohol is Haram!

    The Tafsir below will answer all the incorrect understanding shown above. Read it…I have brought the tafsir to you…now its your job to understand it. And please keep in mind that the hadith mentioned in the tafsir are all Sahih, incase you disregard it.

    “Before making wine absolutely unlawful in this verse, two other Commandments concerning its prohibition had already been given in Al-Baqarah, II: ? 19 and An-Nisa, IV: 43. Before this last Commandment was given, the Holy Prophet addressed the people in order to prepare them for its absolute prohibition. He warned and said, ‘Allah does not like at all that people should drink wine. Probably absolute prohibition will soon be prescribed: therefore those who possess wine are advised to sell it. ” Some time after this, when verse 90 was sent down he declared. “Now those who possess wine, can neither drink it nor sell it; they should, therefore, throw it away.” Accordingly it was spilt in the streets of Madinah to run wastefully. Some people, however, asked the Holy Prophet, “May we give it as a present to the Jews?” He replied, “The One Who has trade it unlawful has also forbidden to give it as a present.” Others asked, “May we convert it into vinegar?” He replied, “No, you must spill it.” Another asked again and again, “Is one permitted to use wine as medicine?” The Holy Prophet emphatically rejected this also and said, “No, it is not a medicine but a disease.” Yet another asked, “Sir, we live in a place, which is very cold, and we have to do tiresome labour. So we drink wine to refresh ourselves from fatigue and to keep warm in the cold.” He asked, “Is what you drink intoxicant?” The man replied, “Yes.” The Holy Prophet replied, “Then refrain from it.” At this the man said, “The people of our part of the country will not submit to this.” He replied, “If they do not submit to this, then go to war with them.”

    According to a Tradition related by Ibn ‘Umar, the Holy Prophet declared, “Allah has cursed wine and the one who drinks it and the one who serves it and the one who sells it and the one who buys it and the one who extracts it and the one who has it extracted and the one who carried it and the one for whom it is carried. ”

    According to another Tradition the Holy Prophet prohibited the Muslims from eating the food which is served alongwith wine. In the initial stage of the prohibition, he forbade even the use of those utensils which were employed for extracting wine or for drinking it. Afterwards when the prohibition had become thoroughly effective, the use of such utensils was permitted.

    Though originally the Arabic word khamr meant only wine made from grapes, and it was also applied to the liquors made from wheat, barley, dried grapes, dates and honey, the Holy Prophet applied the prohibition to all the intoxicants, and there are Traditions that clearly support this. For instance, “Every intoxicant is khamr and is unlawful.” “Every drink that intoxicates is unlawful.” “I prohibit every intoxicant.” In one of his Friday sermons, the Caliph `Umar defined khamr as everything that dulls the faculty of thinking.

    In this connection, the Holy Prophet laid down the general principle : if a large dose of something is intoxicant, then its smallest dose also is unlawful, and if a cup of anything is intoxicant, then a drop of it also is unlawful.”

    May Allah Guide us all the The Straight Path!

    Assalam Alaikum Warahmatullah

    it’s Cyril Almeida who put up this post. Why then discussion about Islam then?!

    Very harsh words brother!!Who knows This Cy gets into paradise and you and me both get roasted in hell fire?In short,its not good to judge someone and declared him/her non-Islamic.Allah knows the best.

    This wine shop is not the first shop in karachi.There are two shops at Hasan square for ages so why an issue with this one?Yes you can condemn the wine shop and any support of it.Wine is not good for health one doesnt need to go against it for religious reason only.

    It’s also true that today Islam is threatened more insiders than outsiders.The insiders means our so called muslims who got a muslim name by their parents and decided to follow western path blindly without using brain.

    @Huma:Though i admire your writing skills and your service to metblog most of the time but it doesnt make me to agree with you every time.

    Taking religion as a personal is a pretty lame statment.I can refute you that religion can never be a personal ,matter and it does influence ppl in your surrounding.Speaking of taking religion personally.I wonder did you ever bother to think about weekly holidays(Saturday and Sunday)which are taken as *religious* days in Jews and Christian community like Muslims have Friday?And everyone of us happily enjoy *those* days While unlike those two religions,Islam never asked for a complete rest day for *prayers* only rather ordered to keep shops closed during prayers time only.Go and read “Surah JUmma” from holy quran if you ever want.

    Wine is not good for health one

    Why is that we jumped out of our seats when something sold legally while poor
    Pakistanis are dying everyday from Heroine overdose? No one is selling it but
    somehow they are getting it via Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan. As for wine, it is suggested certain amount of Red wine is beneficial for your cardiovascular health. It is up to the human being to decide what is better for one.

    do you mean ,_eating_2much_biryani==too much wine glasses?

    Miriam bibi,everyone even knows that alchol is used in little amount in few syrups,does it justify to drink wine?its like i can drink wine because i can eat grapes.

    So does smoking and other bunch of things.

    IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE

    I guess you are asking do I impose my beliefs on others. No I don’t. I think it is the birthright of the minorities (White space in Pakistani flag is for them) to buy Alcohol legally. I like to see that people give them respect which they deserve and they don’t have to buy it from black market, which is dangerous.

    Miriam because unlike you ,others ars suffering in severe problems than running here and there for getting alchol.I have been seeing that you have lots of concern about Pakistani minority,by keeping hypocricy aside ,you should really do something for their better education and future rather considering that supplying *wine* can bring something good in their life.
