What these cars, belonging to Madar-e-Millat be thinking?

Rotten cars belonging to Madar-e-Millat Fatima Jinnah, now at Sindh Archive offices in Clifton Karachi (Original photo trekearth). I am not sure what these cars would be thinking. Probably arguing on the exact amount that goes in millions to keep our ministers cars “in good shape”, to make sure they are “presentable” on occasions, or the 12 million Mercedes for NA speaker. Or may be thinking about their glorious past when people would run after to get close to see/meet the great personality inside. Or may be cursing our indifference towards history.

    Not quite sure if Ms. Jinnah counts as a “great person”.

    They are just cars. What do you expect ?? They should have been auctioned earlier to raise some money for national funds.

    Gr8 nations respect and be proud of their heroes…
    those commenting on jinnah’s being overrated are definitely unaware of history..recommended to read Dr. Safdar Mahmood!

    Not Jinnah himself, but rather Ms. Jinnah, is overrated.

    Pakistan is a unique state where people who give soo much blood for creation of this nation are called thilher,mukher,panahgeer and trated as third class citizens and imposed Quota System on them depriving them from Civil Services, Where Urdu Speaks are massacred for supporting Mohterma Fatima Jinnah in 1965 presidential elections by ethnic Pathans who support Ayub Khan and nobody from this pakistani nation stood up against that, where the Quaid e Azam has been left for dieing on the streets where First Prime Minister was murdered publicaly and the judicial commision comprised of 21 senior judges investigating the murder of Prime Minister also murdered,where Mader e Millat her self was murdered in cold blood then these cars must be thinking nothing they are quite fortunate that they are still standing nobody pimped these rides yet.

    what else can we expect from a nation who killed thier “Father” in the horrid manner that we did… can one imagine even the zillionth vehicle in the presidential motorcade having a flat tire these days??? …. well the ambulance sent to pick the “Father of the Nation” died out TWICE on the way. The Quaid died that night too… but by then, he was already dead I guess. … cause of death? tuberclosis? naaah… He died of a broken heart.
