The Drama with the Islands

As reported, the inauguration for Bagh Ibne Qasim did take place, and the president arrived, this time with less hoo-haa than usual, which is great.

During the inauguration, the president has announced that one of the worlds tallest buildings would be a part of the Islands Project, needless to say he insisted that they will continue. In another turn of events, it was reported last night on TV that the Chief Minister of Sind, Mr. Arbab Ghulam Raheem has consulted with a group of lawyers to review the situation about the islands. It was further reported that “Sind will never relinquish ownership of these Islands. Any area in the arabian sea, higher than the water level is the property of the Province of Sind, and if required, we will approach Supreme Court”.

Classic case of skewed management!

    I think this is just a state play to up the Ante. Arbab Ghulam Raheem amongst others are just playing tough so their piece of the cake is better. They have absolute no concern with Sindh or Pakistan, its just a game of greed and money – in which Musharraf is an equal party

    And the best part that I liked was Musharraf’s comments that the Islands’ development doesn’t possed any danger, whatsoever, to the fragile marine environment. He even insisted that all these so-called environmentalists should come and talk to him.

    This guy sure has guts.

    I did not know that ‘progress and prosperity’ is measured by the height of one’s buildings. I guess one is never too old to learn!

    i agree.

    have you seen the new park on the clifton sie of the karachi beach, forgot the name, the onve which extends from the old casino towards the west. it has completely blocked the ocean view, i used to love the drive along that strip, i saw that area in august and now u can not even see any part of the beach from there.

    I don’t think putting walls around it was a good idea.

    that place was not very nice looking before they made it a park, camels and horses and charsees used to hang out there, but they should do away with the wall!
