Special security arrangements

With the arrival of IDEAS 2007, and the major uplifting / beautification works going on in the city, i’ve started seeing a lot more security people on the roads than normal.

This was confirmed by many other people. Of the security forces present in the city, the rangers has specially been called into protect the expo center and its access roads. Major deployments were noted around the new flyovers as if they’re expecting someone to blow it up?

This morning while coming to work, i saw various ranger mobiles patrolling sharah-e-faisal. This could be just a teaser on how tight security is going to be during those five days.

    my comment to adnan was deleted i suppose…
    anyway, until you abuse me adnan dont fear my “potty mouth” its reserved for special occasions.
    You are not 1% mad brother, its more like 90%. Anyone who supports the taliban has to be.

    Ash, i don’t mind if you abuse me or anyone associated with me. It just expose your *holy* figure to outer world. Facts are facts that can’t be changed. Your army guys are thankless souls who at one hand sell taliban and feed their family people and on otherhand abuse them. That american senetor must have met some Army person that he forced to say that Paksitanis could even sell their mothers for sake of $$$. ‘In the line of fire’ did prove it infront of whole world.

    You can always abuse me off the site whenever you want. URL of my contact is given. I would love to *know* further about army families=)

    adnan! i have no interest in abusing you sir ! how can i make this clearer? i repeat – i have no interest in abusing you. I dont understand you, thats another matter altogether :)

    The pakistani/us govts/armies are definately not blameless in their taliban involvement. Hind sight is 50-50. There is no shame in changing a doomed strategy.
    I personally couldnt care less what some US senator says about us, incase you dont know we are internationally renowned as rapists and pedophiles thanks to our outdated laws and some backward thinking interest groups.

    As for the army and women i am proud of the “womens protection” laws they had to fight all the mullahs in the country to pass. That took guts. The day i see mullahs trying to treat women as humans and not slaves in bondage is the day i will completely agree with you. As in never :)

    treat women as humans and not slaves in bondage

    Fudals are not mullahs, they do what is required to keep them in power. For instance people like Khar can’t be declared as a Religious man but that person would have abused women more than anyone else. Read the books like My fudal lors and Blasphemy by his ex-wife, it will help you to understand what actually happens in Pakistan. Women are not raped severely in mega cities like KHI and LHR. Most of them re abused by fudals and its really a lunatic thinking of yours that Mullahs rape women. Face the reality rather praising a psuedo holy community.

    We are on the same side when it comes to the feudals.

    I actually did not say that mullahs rape women, -read my post again. Mullah rape statistics are hard to prove, but they have proven as a community that they believe in pretty much amnesty for rapists, and blaming the victim – which they do every chance they can get.

    I said thanks to their contribution to misogyny and preventing justice for rape victims pakistan is portrayed internationally as a country full of rapists and pedophiles – a label which ofcourse i dont agree with. But you quoted a US senator as if international opinion is always fair to us. Its not fair mainly because of our backward interest groups.

    And i didnt see you refuting the ‘slaves in bondage” part though you did quote it. Neither can you refute the womens protection law passed by the army opposed by the mullahs.

    the simple point is that the bill you think will protect women is an illusion and i already explained why.

    Time will tell. Whats more important is seeing someone in a position of power trying to reverse the evil curse of misogyny purpetuated by feudals, tribals, mullahs, talibanists etc
