    Just the perfect kind of gift to the Indian team as they gave to us before Eid… :)

    Certainly a match worth skipping your dinner for!
    Nice job Younus, Misbah and Afridi! Keep up the good work

    Of course, happy diwali to every one. Puraanee yaadai’n taazah ho gaee’n.

    This is from the same guy who wrote that “Similarly, most Ahadees are crap.“, that prayer is required but ‘Five times is a person’s choice’, that ‘Vazu, I don’t think is necessary when people take one or more shower a day’ [here: http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/2007/05/fahmequran_hadi.phtml — half way down and below]. Balma called himself XYZ then. He’s the biggest clown I’ve seen. So, as far as I’m concerned, not surprised that he is romancing about purani yaadain and giving greetings on Diwali.

    Ibrahim bhai, akhaah, baRay dino’n kay baad tashreef layae. Yes, guys, I did write for first few times as XYZ. Then I decided to have bit more unique ID. YEs, I did say vazu is not necessary if one takes one or more showers a day…obviously, with some caveats:-)
    YEs, I did say that ahaadees are at best a historical record of what people thought what prophet Muhammad said.

    But, Ibrahim bhai, this is Diwali post. Behes karnaa hae, toe kahee’n aur milyae!

    And, thanks for spelling Vazu, and not vadu. You know how that pisses me off!

    A very HAPPY DEEPAVALI to all Pakistanis :)

    Ever since two of my dearest and most cherished friends Arun and Gitanjli (Happy Deepavli you two!:) came into my life some 18 years ago, i’ve discovered that the aesthetic aspect of this festival can be enjoyed by all, regardless of faith. Just like Eid, i have loved celebrating this festival every year, all 5 days of it! From Dhanteras to Bhaiduj … and love every moment if it … dias, kandils, flowers, fireworks, mehndi and sweet-n-spicy food … everything!

    A beautiful festival to highlight the “awarenes of the inner light”. Thank god for diversity. Happy Deepavali everyone!!! :)

    No, I don’t like to get into debates with jhula like youself. But, people should know who you really are. That’s all. What a clown!

    Happy Diwali to everyone (who celebrates ;).


  13. Jibran (unregistered) on November 11th, 2007 @ 5:01 am

    yes, happy diwali to all hindus who celebrate it. of course all pakistanis need to respect this.

    when is the Rakhi day? why dont pakistanis celebrate it like they celebrate New Year, Birthdays, and Valentines to name a few?

    I plan on sending a gift to my 2 sisters on next Rakhee :)


  14. Neena (unregistered) on November 11th, 2007 @ 7:28 am

    Jibran,

    Be prompt – The next Raksha Bandhan will be on Saturday, the 16th of August, 2008.


  15. khanabadosh (unregistered) on November 11th, 2007 @ 8:01 am

    Best wishes for the festival of diwali to all Hindu brothers and sisters in Pakistan.


  16. Imran (unregistered) on November 11th, 2007 @ 10:02 am

    Those of us, who feel we have to EXPLICITLY SEPARATE “diwali TO ALL HINDUS who celebrate it” … don’t you think we are being too predictable (and narrow-minded) in the 21st Century?

    Any festival, religious or communal, be it Eid, Bar Mitzvah, Holi, Christmas, Deepavali … is a celebration of humanity.

    So unless we’re still living in the 14th Century with an agenda to take part in holy crusades, all i can say is let us lets BROADEN OUR HORIZONS my friends. And learn to ENJOY LIFE the way life is meant to be lived as ONE as humans, before dividing ourselves as hindus, muslims, christians or zorastrians. We don’t choose our religion, but we can choose what kind of human beings we become.

    * when is the Rakhi day? why dont pakistanis celebrate it

    **** OK, I am not bing funny here but how would it feel getting raakhi from your female cousins? First, you have to part with some cash, second they just signaled you that they don’t consider you as a marriage prospect…. In other words, don’t bother showing up for their soember!

    @Imran: You are being extremist here. You want to impose your so called Humanity on everyone. Nothing wrong if Jibran greeted to Pakistani Hindus. He did right because dewali is a religious celebration for Hindus. It’s rather like Insulting people of other belief if you greet them for something which they don’t follow. I know it because I have experienced it myself.

    Grow up buddy!


  19. Imran (unregistered) on November 11th, 2007 @ 7:09 pm

    Well, my apologies to you Adnan if i hurt your personal belief.

    *shakes head in amazement*


  20. JIBRAN (unregistered) on November 12th, 2007 @ 5:04 am

    balma ji,
    I dont plan on celebrating “rakhee” with my cousins, i used the word “Sister” and I have 2. go back and read again.

    Neena,
    thanks for letting me know the date. i will mark my calendar.


  21. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on November 12th, 2007 @ 11:08 am

    YOu re being silly here. If you think greeting EID to a Hindu and Christians is Humanity then you are living in fools paradise. This is not tolerance, this is rather extremism which you are not able to understand.

    Being ONE doesn’t mean imposing Single thought on everyone. If you preach that then I wonder why do you curse Mullahs whom you believe do same?

    Being one means accepting others as well with their own school of thoughts.

    You have to learn lots of things in life. AS I said, grow up buddy!
