What’s up with red flags?

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2007/07/17072007-thumb.jpgDid anyone else notice the red flags on and around SF? What’s up with that? Are we going to have a bull fighting tournament in the streets?

    People have been stripped of the only color that was left in the city.

    Billboards without safety are UNACCEPTABLE. All civilized countries with billboards adorning their roads have strict regulations for them which ensure aesthetical value AND SAFETY.
    As far as the ANP flags are concerned, I feel non-violent and non-disruptive political activity such as harmless flags on SF is a healthy sign unless they are the calm before the storm.

    Thats new way of advertising. Instead of putting up “ugly” billboards now the structures will be used to host flags and rags.

    ok i gotta say these empty bb’s do look ugly
    if they were told to take the thingy down then why don’t they take the whole thing down??
    don’t tell me they have plans to use them again!

    Red Flags are of Pakistan Press Association.

    these are only short term measures, they’re not taking them down .. after moonson is over they’ll be back again.. just like those polythene bags issue.. bribes were paid to MQM’s leadership and now every thing is back to ‘normal’ …

    Bull fighting tournament :) ha ha ha

    ROCK ON KARACHI!!!


  14. ShahidnUSA (unregistered) on July 19th, 2007 @ 2:26 am

    LOL! That was funny syed Johny
    MQM has become a red flag
    Bribing accusation without an eyewitness? not fair
    But who knows may be. No party is perfect
    Everyone is entitled of his/her openion. (without losing civility)
    Thats how we learn

    oops, mispelled flags. Pathans could use them now to hang big carpets :)


  17. Danish (unregistered) on July 19th, 2007 @ 12:51 pm

    Syed_Johnny ..Why do u and ur loser MQM ppl get so offended when the truth is written about the political party. MQM is behind every possible corruption in the city and thats the truth..Hell they even own a tv channel to show they’re such angels.


  18. Syed Johny (unregistered) on July 19th, 2007 @ 2:26 pm

    Danish sahab !!!

    Firstly !!!I am not a part of MQM !!! nor have affiliation with it or any other political group for that matter!

    What I was trying to say that !!! the Almia Mr Doctor stated was of whole Pakistan and not just Karachi !!

    And blaming MQM for everything isn’t the Answer! The Jamat also had the govt of Karachi for four years ! they also had same faults !!!
    balkay if you compare the work of both Jamat and MQM in the CDGK tenures ! Then you will come to the conclusion that the short term work was done in the former as compared to the latter one !!!!

    and what pisses me off is that !! Guys like doctor don’t have anything else to do than to malign MQM! if things go around like this you will see! Guys like Doctor going on international forum and blaming MQM for the Palestinian cause!!

    wake up!! by unnecessary criticism a person looses ingenuity!

    my brother works for a marketing company in karachi. he told me the flags were put on for visibility purposes. since some areas of karachi have an immense amound of sign boards, it is difficult to tell whose is whose especially if they have no identifying features. so some companies have taken it upon themselves to mark them.

    The website has no political affiliation nor a particular agenda but to make people aware of Altaf’s reality and how he used (and even uses now) his party workers,APMSO members and innocent mohajirs to make his evil and selfish ends meet.

    GA MOHAJIRS,GA KARACHI,GA PAKISTAN!!
