The blood is on everyones hand

When i started out my previous post, my intention was to highlight some of the larger issues which were looming in the background, the elephant in the room so to speak. On that, i received some very interesting comments from both sides, with a majority people still attacking MQM for their thuggery (which i dont deny btw) and putting them in the limelight for everything wrong.

It was saddening to see so many deaths in the city yesterday, but can someone answer me this. Why is it that almost all the people who died were affiliated with a political party? Be it ANP, PML, PPP or the MQM? Apart from the Eidhi driver (may his soul rest in peace) who else was the ‘innocent’ who died yesterday? It was a warzone with parties going at each other. Casualties were incurred. Thats what war does, thats why wars are bad. You poeple said if it was someone from my family, i would be thinking different. People from my family are not stupid enough to go out toting guns all over their neighbourhood. Those who did, suffered the same fate. My point is, ‘taale do hathon say bajte hai’. Calm down and think about it.

Yesterdays massacare was not just the MQM, it was MQM and everybody else. As Concerned righly put it “The reason it went bad was because every god damn party picked up a weapon and came out on the street.” In Distraughts’ words “There’s no one set of people or parties to blame. All the people involved share the guilt and the shame of this equally. It takes two to tango”

Right now, we need to come together as a city, not as a party, not as a ethnic group and defnitely not as a political cause and solve this issue. Make our city a better place to live and terror free.

    Good job Mansoor. Appreciate your thoughfulness and fairness. We as SILENT MAJORITY are only watching and discussing these matter in our drawing rooms and either critisizing or prazing.This is our country our city and we belong here but people from out side Quit comming and destroying the PEACE.We say Islam means PEACE?Are we peaceful People? Hamara Ghusa to hamsab ki Naak per hota hae? We as followers of Islam do not practice what we preach? Sabar Karo ‘ALLAH Sabar Karnae waloan Kae sath Hae’.

    It’s horrendous to see how KMB is hijacked by anti-Karachi elements. They oppose every project in Karachi – roads, flyovers, buildings, waterfront development. Its always the same people opposing EVERYTHING and now they’re gloating over the killings and mayhem and expecting with excitment their mistress Zardari to come back. They make me sick.

    It doesn’t matter to them that nowadays Karachi is going through the biggest economic boom in 30 years ever since Bhutto nationalized industry in Karachi and destroyed Pakistan’s economy.

    It doesn’t matter to them that in the last 7 years Pakistan’s economy has doubled from $60 billion to $130 billion.

    All these parasites want is Miss Beyshitti Zardari to come back.


  5. Teeth Maestro (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 4:29 pm

    @SoftJoint how ironical that you sit in the US writing these comments accusing us of hijacking the issue when we actually sit here and take the bullets while you enjoy it in a comfort free life in the United States, please try not to accuse the suffering.

    KMB is a forum of independent minded young bloggers who share their thoughts brought together on this one page, for one moment step back and think if 20 young people are so vehemently opposed to an issue then it must carry weight – oops but I forgot how can you tell – since you are sitting in the US and reading the carnage rather then ‘living’ the bullets here


  6. Pkhan (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 4:35 pm

    @ Teeth Maestro
    Whether some one is in karachi or in haven(USA)what it has to do with their opinion? You FACING THE BULLET? check to see if your PANTS are OK. Stop this MERA TERA .KMB might be independent bloggers but most of the time the blog is one sided but Mansoor has written a nice blog,well done mansoor and let the Teeth Maestro get his TEETH GRIND?


  7. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 4:50 pm

    One question and I see how might wisdom of Mansoom wich he ineherited from ARmy responds, “Why same opposition didn’t create mess in LHR,Peshawer,Gujrat and Islamabad?”. Why in Karachi only? Lahore and ISB re more important for Ruling party than Karachi. Can your mighty wisdom answer this? and please don’t repeat what MQM leaders chanting on TV. Use your brain.


  8. softjoint (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 4:52 pm

    Teeth, for years Karachi has been peaceful and benefitting from a boom. When have you and your alter ego “Doctor” EVER said anything positive about ANYTHING. Its always gloom and doom for you and your spoons. The only time I’ve seen you excited is now.

    You don’t come across as a wellwisher of Karachi but as a grumpy old man with an axe to grind with the city.


  9. depressed (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 4:52 pm

    100% agree with softjoint & Pkhan, this is an opinionated blog… they have nothing to offer but to complain all the time.


  10. Atif (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 5:02 pm

    This is not the first time something like this has happened in Pakistan. The only difference is that this was caught live on TV. MQM was formed because of the ill policies and patronage of another Military Dictator, Gen Zia, and again came into fore front during the reign of another Military dictator, Gen Musharraf. Gen. Musharraf and PM Shaukat should know that this wont stop here, it will only escalate. It is ultimately the responsibility of the government to provide safety and security to its citizens, on which it has failed miserably. These armed thugs were killing everyone yesterday, tomorrow they will be snatching mobile phones and committing dacoities in Karachi. Who is going to stop them ??


  11. Pkhan (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 5:03 pm

    @ Nadan Siddiqui
    Nadan Sid what it has to do with Army Background?for Mansoor> Why? Why? it did not happen here because they Do not have any Support here in Karachi? Just Calm Down and Analyse the Area’s where this Damadum Mast Qalandar Happen you will find your answer.Long Live Karachi on whose shoulder the Whole of Pakistan is Enjoying the ECONOMIC BOOM.
    If you hate Karachi that much move to MOON? you will be at PEACE.

  13. Tabraiz Feham (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 5:06 pm

    Karachi is in no way similar to Lahore, Kingdom of Gujrat, Peshawer or whatsoever. Karachi being the financial hub of the country has always been a targets point for anti-Pakistani & anti-govt elements. They have very strong roots over here and its very easy for them to create rumpus whenever they want. We have witnessed the same so many times in the past… these elements can hijack the city in no-time. This is the reason that makes Karachi diffrent from all the other cities. The same happened yerterday, although MQM & other parties were also equally involved in giving air to the fire… but the way it all started from various parts of the city at once, reflects the hopelessness of this city in the hands of the poeple who mostly are from outside & dwelling like parasites on us.


  14. mahajir4eva (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 5:08 pm

    BIASED!!! yes of course keep pickin on MQM !!
    @ Adnan Siddiqui
    may be opposition jus wanted that to happen in karachi just to get sympathies… and some coverage from frm there own media…


  15. Teeth Maestro (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 5:34 pm

    PK Khan @ Softjoint – I agree to your point, yes everyone has the right of opinion and that is why we are all engaging in a civil dialog, quite simply.

    Yes I appreciate mansoor for a different perspective from the one I share and thats healthy – but that is the beauty of a group blog and the beauty of free speech.

    Pakistanis are slowly learning how to cope with an open dialog which was not seen in the past or was only limited to drawing room politics


  16. atif abdul rahman (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 5:39 pm

    I dont think opposition will be very happy with yesterday’s proceedings. Infact, MQM is under leash of the General now as someone pointed out well. And Opposition may not unite as they expected to do so. Another plus point for the General.


  17. Mohsin (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 6:07 pm

    I think Mansoor has made some valid points, we are all very much aware of the past and present of MQM but the ground reality is it is “the” dominant party in karachi. The fact of the matter is the only solution of the current fiasco is to disarm all political and religious parties by some neutral body. No one should be allowed to exhibit their arms and ammunitions publicly.


  18. zeeshan syed (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 6:19 pm

    Let me jump in this band wagon and oh yeah I think I am inviting loads of flames!

    Who cares about Karachi Metblogs being hijacked or not hijacked. It’s just a blog where people can express their views and are free to visit this place as many times as they want.

    The biggest problem is that KARACHI has been hijacked. Let me be frank here please? Why do I see million of Afghans and Pathans from Quetta, Pisheen (I beleive pathans from Peshawar/NWFP are much better and educated) here in our city? What the hell are they doing here? See, I wouldn’t mind if they were contributing to Karachi’s growth but they are not. They are now being used by political parties for their own agenda.

    Afghans and pathans (I am so so so sorry if someone is getting offended by this but I am only voicing my concerns), they are involved in distribution of Drugs, Weapon Supply, Mobile Snatching (yes, it’s not just MQM, it’s also other parties), Traffic Mafia, Tanker (water supply) Mafia, Car Showroom Mafia, Assasination business and oh not to mention the good old burglers.

    To top this, we also get thousands of people coming and disappearing in Karachi daily. We get people from Punjab, Balochistan and again NWFP, PLUS people from Kashmir etc etc

    All of these groups want to have their own stake in this city. Every group wants to have a HOLD of this city. The major reason Karachi burns more in any given case is the simple fact that if you want to hurt Pakistan’s economy and make the government cry tears of blood then make Karachi suffer for a day or two. Karachi generates the money Pakistan feeds on and let there be no doubt that people of Karachi alone pay more tax than any other provide or city in Pakistan.

    MQM is not at all true to it’s own voters. Same is the case with ALLLL other parties. If you think that PPP or PML N, Q, CHAY or ANP or any other domestic political party really cares about your problem or cares about this city or this country then you are heavily mistaken. Be it ugly betty Altaf Hussain or be it Man-HO-Benazir or bald-ass-headed Nawaz Sharef and SPECIALLY these god damn Pervert Mullas, none will ever stand true to the oaths they take when they take power.

    This city is bound to get doomed and I am afraid the same fate awaits this whole country. We do NOT need India, American or Israel to come destroy us. We will probably self terminate or go down to those levels where even an African country would easily invade us and take over our country.

    I believe Pakistan is breathing it’s last breaths and it will die quickly if events like yesterday keep on happening. We are only cutting the very branch we are sitting on.

    Assalam o alaikum, I must admit that I was also put off by the tone your previous post took on, albeit unintentionally. The summation of your thoughts in this post provide a simple yet outright perspective on May 12 that includes a progressive insight for the future, and I appreciate that.


  20. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 6:48 pm

    Tabraiz I agree that city could be hijacked within minutes and we all witnessed How AAJ tv building was hijacked. But the point is who can hijack this “Mega city” which you also called “Financial Hub” and Bigger than Gujrat? Only that community which has strong hold in the region and in majority. Now who claims to have strong hold in this city, we all know well :-)


  21. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 6:51 pm

    PKhan,cheetay the way MQM is doing sissy politics and ruining the city, Karachi wouldn;t be Financial Hub anymore. Most of Industry got shifted in Punjab in Mid and late 90s. The big IT companies HO are either in Islamabad or Lahore. Since I am in IT field so I have better idea than non-IT people where the major investment being done. Tum bus apna pajama sambhalta rahjana aur “Revenue Revenue ki rat lagatay rahna”. Karachi is being sucked and MQM is partner in crime.


  22. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 6:54 pm

    Zeeshan Syed, it means it’s only in karachi where people from different part of the cities are being migrated? waise things are changing, now people go to LHR rather than Karachi since Lahore is getting developed. Also, I think you want to say people from all over the world doesn’t move to US and there is no illegal immigration in US from border countries?


  23. softjoint (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 7:07 pm

    Personally I don’t like ethnic origins of people being discussed. Everyone is welcome in Karachi and everyone is contributing, and every ethnicity has rotten apples.

    The issue is that that some people get so blinded by their narrow view that they don’t see any good in the city. Karachi has had massive economic development yet these people never appreciate anything and just complain, complain and complain.


  24. zeeshan syed (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 7:13 pm

    Adnan: I am also related to I.T. I am mostly involed in Outsourcing business. I don’t with Pakistani clients. Not after realizing how stupid, dumb and cheaters Pakistani service buyers are.

    Tell me something, how much money does our so called I.T. sector makes? A couple of millions? That’s all? LOL… that’s what a single medium sized company produces in Karach. So our weak I.T. doesn’t stand for anything.

    I’m glad businesses are moving to Lahore and other parts of the country. We as Karachiites are SICK and TIRED of dealing with the MESS we get in from Punjab and other parts of the country. It’s good that people are now heading towards Lahore and companies are moving there. At least that will get them pay taxes a bit? :D

    Btw, people migrating to Lahore are a FRACTION of what we have here so u still got a long way to go and believe me I HATE that. Lol :D

    Also, I think you want to say people from all over the world doesn’t move to US and there is no illegal immigration in US from border countries?

    When did I say that? I mean how did you conclude that? Seriously, I am beginning to enjoy your posts :)

    But to address something that wasn’t originally mentinoed in my earlier post and to answer the point you just raised. Yes, people do move to USA but the law and order is so good that most of such immigrants CONTRIBUTE to building a better America. Here it’s a totally different story


  25. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 7:38 pm

    I am glad you have started to enjoy. Seems your nerves are in control now. This is what you said?


    Why do I see million of Afghans and Pathans from Quetta, Pisheen (I beleive pathans from Peshawar/NWFP are much better and educated) here in our city? What the hell are they doing here?

    You asked what pathans re doing here? Well what Pakistanis do in US at McDonalds and KFC outlets , they are also doing here, that is contribution. Imagine there is no pathan in city, who would build the roads and buildings? Urdu speaking people are so haram khors that they ant every facility in hands and still didn’t like to work hard. Be honest and accept and appreciate the contributions put by Pathans in Karachi. Speaking of Mafia, The land mafia is being controlled by MQM itself. Do I need to mention a name? well ‘babar Ghauri’ :-)

    So our weak I.T. doesn’t stand for anything

    Where did I say our IT is better than Anyone else? you seriously missed the point,koi baat nai, Jawani ka josh he tumhara :-). What I said that whatever happening in Pakistan in IT sector is actually being established in Punjab province. All[or majority] Mobile Companies’ HOs are in ISB. Major outsourcing companies regardless of their quality are in ISB. Recently Dr.awab told me that a couple of Google employees were in ISB to conduct interview from college students. Also, they are planning to establish their Pakistan office in ISB. So these are just few indicators that Karachi is losing its financial status.


    ‘m glad businesses are moving to Lahore and other parts of the country. We as Karachiites are SICK and TIRED of dealing with the MESS we get in from Punjab and other parts of the country

    How old are you zeeshan? Only some idiot or immature person could make such irresponsible statment.

    at one side you curse Punjab while on other hand you are willing to move entire business to Punjab? That is giving them away everything? Right now entire Pakistan is whining about Kala Bagh Dam just because they think Punjab would suck entire water? We have already been exporting goods from Punjab in higher rates. The rate of KESC units is higher in Karachi than Punjab. We Karachiites Pay Rs.1000 for electricity while Punjab pays Rs.600. The ratio is 3:5. This is the figure given by MQM’s Kunwar Khalid Younus when once he was crying in assembly about cruelty of Fedral Govt[Read Punjab]. If everything would be in Punjab’s hand then you would be crying more as acording to you, they “USE” our resources. Abhi tu Bhai Lahore ki jeans aur faisalabad k Underwear aur Banyan ban rahay hain, jab sab kuch punjab ka hoga tu kia karachi mey nangay ghoomo gey? Use your brain!

    Better you do some home

  28. Atif (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 7:59 pm

    Its good that IT companies are opening up offices in Lahore and ISB. Its good to have industries spread out. This has what happened in the US, India etc. The financial sectors are in Mumbai and NY, whereas the IT is concentrated in SanFran and Bangalore. Same thing is happening in Pakistan. Karachi is the finance and commercial center of Karachi, and this will not change. Other industries should move to other parts of the country.


  29. ash (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 9:06 pm

    Karachi is a city of immigrants almost noone can trace more than 2 generations to karachi. So why shouldnt pathans/afghani’s move here? thats a truly disgusting argument and i think you just made everyone feel sick just hearing it.
    Mansoor is abslutely right we should not condone political violence at all, not from the MQM or PPP or IJI or ANP or whoever the hell. Since MQM seems to have taken the lead yesterday they get the lions share of the blame.


  30. SELF (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 9:35 pm

    Mansoor, you are pathetic. The blood is squarely on MQM’s hand. CJ had every right to come to Karachi. Karachi and Mizar e Quid are not owned by Altaf and MQM although this is what you think Stop this BS now.


  31. SELF (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 9:40 pm

    Why no bloodshed occurred in any of the other places the CJ went? Exactly! There is no MQM there neither does any other single party thinks it own those cities. Enough said.


  32. SELF (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 9:44 pm

    Funny how MQM supporters here (no names :)) look more and more like lal masjid supporters, supporting their side no matter how openly wrong and absurd. Funny how true character comes out when nearest and dearest are involved.


  33. Petarian_88 (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 10:06 pm

    Mansoor;

    the opposition supporters were marching towards airport to receive the CJP.

    The were clearly attacked at several points like baloach colony bridge.

    agreed that they also had guns and were seend firing them towards the shooters on the rampof the bridge. thats called self defence!

    the only thing that prevented a total massacre was the gund carried by the opposition parties….MQM took away the guns of policemen!!


  34. irfan (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 10:21 pm

    12 May was the dark day for whole Pakistan . Those who died may Allah give them peace in grave . I just want to say to MQM shame on you and please please dont come to Punjab or NWFP or Bloachistan we dont want to you . We dont want that you come to punjab and make punjab like karachi . People in Punjab are very very sad and depress what happened in karachi .
    Long live karachi long live pakistan .


  35. original-faisal (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 11:12 pm

    This post of Mansoor’s, as positive as it may sound, is a blatant attempt to try and distance himself from the total BS and rubbish he wrote in his prior post.

    What do you need …. reality to slap you in the face. Wake up and smell the doodh-pati, sweetheart.


  36. Tanveer (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 11:28 pm

    I guess what happened on street on 12/5/2007, is precisely reflected on this very blog. Like teeth M. said, everyone has right to speak their mind on this blog.

    Now, they have said it. we have discussed Mohajirs, Punjabis, Pathans and even Afghanis. No one has discussed Pakistaniant. I may sound bored but lets face it, we are no different then gun toting goons on the street, they killed their enemy and we!!! what we have done, we have started pointing fingures on each other, without knowing each other’s background.

    I wonder when a day will come when I will take my son to Burns road late in night for a late night snack without any fear of car-jacking & harasment by police.

    I said in my comment in Mansoor’s previous blog, WE HAVE TO FIGHT THE ANTI-KARACHI ELEMENTS OURSELVES. Now I take my words back, as I dont see we have enough will to do that.

    Fight fight and keep on fighting, thats what we do best. Bloggers shame on yourself, instead of resolving the issue you guys are into ethenic lashing. :(


  37. Red_Munk!! (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 11:42 pm

    Tanveer, been following stuff have you? :).

    MQM apologists did what they do best & played the “everyone vs poor us” card.

    Ppl blogged what they saw.

    We saw a “ghunda” (Metro blog seems to moderate the T word :S)– party in power, abusing it to the max. Politically, socially & culturally.

    Betukki rally nikali mqm ne. Cj just had a speech to HIS PPL—The lawyers.

    Road Khode, ruling party ne….opposition were not reported to be involved in anything.

    Ppl were harrased by mqm….again—hell I even thank JI/ST for preventing me from getting car-jacked/worse by mqm tatoo’s.

    No one but mqm ever pits the various races against each other. Everyone has been living in these lands for centuries—in HARMONY.

    But we cant really expect better from a party created for and by a certain sect of ppl who have a history of violence & trying to initiate a concept of “divide and rule”.

    They have failed in the past & will do so again.

    it,s painful for the students of 9th grade tht they are appearing in exams from 16th may and they have not got Admit card yet.

    @Atif: Karachi is called financial hub because financial institutes like banks and insurance companies etc have HO in office and then state bank. Bank like Alfalah already been shifting most of its operation in Punjab and sooner or later the HO would be in Punjab. Business is business. Banks or any other business need revenue whether they get from Karachi or from Wazeeristan. They wouldn’t show love for karachi and screw themselves up.. When there will be no financial institute then how would you be able to call KHI a financial hub?


  39. Red_Munk!! (unregistered) on May 14th, 2007 @ 1:44 am

    well sais Adnan.

    Maybe they’ll blame the shifting of Al-falah on Panjab as well. :s


  40. Babar (unregistered) on May 14th, 2007 @ 5:04 am

    As some people have pointed out, there is no doubt in my mind that huge crimes have been commited against Muhajirs in the past years. During the operation against MQM, attrocities were committed against muhajirs, no matter if they were involved in any of the crimes of MQM or not. We should never forget the whole picture.

    Also it is quite obvious that Pakhtoons , Punjabis and SIndhis are not angels. They also kill people. But the main issue here is who master minded and planned the May 12th, and I think only a blind person can go wrong in seeing the culprit in this regard. It was Sindh Government itself (MQM + Musharraf regime).

    Well, at last this blog make some sense to me. The rest are so baised and full of crap that I feel regret of waisting my time going through those. Who ever belong to Karachi & know a little bit of back ground of the Karachites (people who lost their lives and every thing they had, had left their land, responsible to build this city & the nation as well, who taught the so called “BAREY BHAI’S” the manners to use bath rooms as they were used to enjoy OPEN AIR SAFARIE’s before)can’t say such hatefull things as I read in other blogs. I can’t belive how some people have a memory like a gold fish. They forget the days of PPP and Nawaz Sharif, the whole political history (black history infact) of Pak right after Qaid & Liaqat Ali Khan. There is no doubt & question about the wrong doings of MQM. but they are not the only ones, Ironically they become just like others & I am sure most of us are ashamed of that. But pretending that they are only culprit for all that Mess is a true reflection of extreme bais & hatred that some people have for Karachites.

    Mansoor,
    Each of us knows that that massacare was plotted by MQM, they start eveything, dont u know who attack on Aaj TV, dont you know who blocked Shahr-e-faisal, who dig road near mazar-e-quaid, dont you know who is in govt, and who should be responsible. Govt should accept it and appologize from people of karachi. To me it look like MQM thinktank are foolish, their planning was full of flaw, and unfortunatly our media is so stronge now, they disclose all planning of MQWM. I will appreciate GEO, Aaj and other private channels, they really did a great job and show us the real on-road picture.

    @Red_Munk!! I never took side of MQM, neither of someone else (pls visit my comment again). All I am trying to say that ‘jawab baraye jawab’ will never lead us anywhere but to a dead end.

    The final words are, that if you want to see peace around you then you have to start resisting the acts & wrong-doings of these gun toting goons. Start it now, its never too late, I am not trying to be a revolutionist but that’s the reality, tell the terrorist that we will not be hostages to their unlawful wishes. Celebrate a unity day and walk to street to show them that there is no fear among you, show these terrorists that we are still one nation, show them the spirit the Karachites showed during the earth-quake fund raising, show them the strength you have which you showed during 1965. I hope this time you will get the message.

    Oh by the way, I left London last night and am staying for a day in Duabi on my way to Karachi. Let me tell you in Lodnon every Pakistani feels bad on what happened in Karachi but they are not accusing anyone, all they want is peace in their homeland.

    sohail: as for the attack on aaj tv, as was rightly said by someone on this post, if it was *really* an attack, there wouldn’t be anyone left alive in it. I believe it was more of being in the middle of a crossfire and getting burnt by it than an actual attack.

    but thats my opinion, the truth can be different.

    @Mansoor
    Well, MQM and Qaff reps have defeated Hitler & Goebles for speaking lies. Last night i have seen all the footage of attack which denies the claim of “cross fire”. It also tells us clearly, all this started when “some body” ordered it after watching live footage coming from Aaj.
    The location of Aaj cannot be hit in a cross fire between patelpara and guru mandar. It was directly hit, if you want to make sure try to use Google Earth.
