    The Sindh Education Minister is flexing arms, on behest of Arbab Ghulam Raheem, MQM will be painted RED. It is MQM which tabled the idea of merit admissions in whole province not only in Karachi.

    The forum will not bow down to the pressure they are united and they have support from the Ruling Party :)

    With MQM ruling the city/province, governor also being from MQM; its nobody else than MQM who can do this.

    Moreover, it was Naimatullah Khan who came with this Centralized Admission Policy for admitting on merit.

    As always, MQM can take credit and when it crumbles, it can always blame KPT or NLC etc.

    Another anti- MQA thread started by Jamaati’s , these Munafiq Jamati’s never let go any oppertunity to cuss MQM .

    This tranfer business has always been part of our education system, even long before MQM existed.

    This happens throughout Pakistam , In colleges in Lahore , Islamabad , Quetta , Peshawar , Gujranwala ,, go on blame MQM for that as well !!!!

    shame on you Haters!!

    Inter Science is the only criteria to judge the capabilility of a student who comes from an average middle class family of Karachi and that average middle class makes the majority of Karachi’s polulation.

    Preserve the standard of Inter Science education by preserving the tough admission criteria in some of the best colleges of Karachi.

    These dumb thickheaded students should not make it to those colleges. The studets who don’t work hard to earn a degree are simply hopeless and are a burden to our society and economy. They should be discouraged.

    Smart nations like India and China know these small little things and thats why they don’t mix education with politics but the “jaahil” administration like ours, don’t.

    Anyone chastising MQM for whatever…….WHAT HAVE DONE LATELY AGAINST QUOTA LATELY?????

    In case , people have forgotten , people of urban Sindh( read Muhajirs) have been robbed of their rights for thirty bloody years now. Every single job, every single seat has been going to the people from Interior Sindh who turn to Karachi as a milk cow to encash their opportunity to loot and plunder.

    Ever wonder why every single government job in Sind Secretariat is occupied by someone with a funny surname….the reason is they are all from interior sindh, are perhaps first generation muslims and therefor have those hindu last names and like palani, palejo, shawhwani, motwani, bla bla bla.

    For thirty years I have not seen any single person amongst my circle of people from urban sindh getting any government job. As a result all of them have had to migrate to other countries.

    Those complaining about MQM should reflect into themselves…they only chastise MQM because of their innate hatred for Muhajirs and MQM and not really because of any issues.

    I miss Doctor. Its not possible for him to avoid an Anti MQM post.

    Comeon doctor I want to hear what you have to say.

    And ppl you are really naive if you think things were being done on Merit uptill now and MQM is the one spoiling that.

    And he is back with more BS.

    The news reported the same thing as:

    “A larger bench of Sindh High Court Monday adjourned hearing of case about May 12 incidents till the next Monday amid apprehensions of any lawless incident when large number of political workers gathered in the court.

    The workers of Muttahida Qaumi Movement and other political parties were gathered in the court in large number before hearing of the May 12 reference.
    Former I.G. Police of Sindh, CCPO Karachi, TPO Saddar, national and provincial assembly members of MQM and town nazims were also present in the courtroom.

    The seven-member bench of the court called the lawyers in chamber and adjourned the hearing till the next Monday after consultation with the Chief Justice of Sindh.

    Masood Noorani, Advocate General of Sindh, told newsmen that he had requested the learned court to adjourn the hearing for 10 days due to apprehension of any lawless incident due to gathering of political workers in large number in the courtroom. The court adjourned the hearing for a week.

    Nawab Mirza Advocate said that the people gathered in the court were victims of May 12 incidents, which wanted to record their statements in the court. ”


    Please note the words other political parties.

    are you really a dimwit or just pretending to be one? can’t you clearly read that the rowdy crowd which took over the court building was chanting slogans in favor of MQM and Altaf bai… now you don’t expect other parties to do that do you? don’t tell me it was another conspiracy by “other parties” to discredit “law abiding” MQM..

    it was quite natural reaction from MQM and its terrorist leadership after saturday’s proceedings in which of venomous Waseem Akhtar(MQM’s interior adviser) was grilled by otherside’s lawyer during cross questioning …
