Currently here…

There’s a three day mourning announced by Mr. President.
Yes, I am already mourning for all the other people who have been mislead, in their passion for violence, for revenge. Every time, Karachi pays for the loss. As I speak National Hospital, right after Kala Pull has been set ablaze. Really, a hospital? A man has been shot, a bus has been torched near the Steel Mill. Shops are closed, people are panicking. A lot of people returning from offices have abandoned their cars in fear of being set on fire themselves. Gulistan-e-Jauher is the centre of violent activities.
Yes, no one should die in such dire circumstances. Terrorism is what it was. But the aftermath of terrorism must be terrorism as well?
What’s the update in your area?

    My car was just attacked by 4 men who were burning tires and were attacking a bus on Khayaban-e-Hafiz, Phase 5 in Defence. They rushed the car with sticks and hit it, but thank God I was able to escape while they chased after us.

    No area is safe. There are reports of severe violence in the Mai Kolachi area where there has been open firing.

    Gizri and Zamzama have also seen roads blocked and mobs of youth attacking cars and shops.

    Its like a ghost town in phase 5.

    Some kids from gizri were breaking signals and getting agitated in the evening (around 7) but sense seems to have prevailed and things are very quite here right now.

    Wish everyone well and hope you stay safe.

    Please stay calm and avoid doing anything rash or stupid for ultimately it is our own town/city/country and everything we do effects us in the long run.

    May God watch over us all. Amen.

    An update from one of my relatives who work @ the National Hospital. Hospital was not set on fire rather it was a petrol pump near by!

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Yeh PPP walay jahil kay bachay, bekusoor awaam ko kiyon maar rahay hain … unlogon ka kiya kusoor hai ?

  9. d0ct0r (unregistered) on December 27th, 2007 @ 11:49 pm

    @CitizenofKhi none of the miscreant have ppp name tag on their faces.. could be MQM’s terrorists as well.. bekusoor awaam heh u just made me laugh..

    *There’s stuff happening in defence too??

    *** Kyoon, kyaa defence vaalay kyaa fucking aasmaan say Tapkay hai’n. People who used to live in Kharadar and Laloo Khet have moved to Defence , Clifton, Korangi, Akhtar colony as well as to other neighborhoods of Karachi. Take note.

  11. ShahidnUSA (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 12:37 am

    Very sad.. any loss of life is sad.
    My coworker who is from philipine,told me about the news, she seemed very sad. I had to leave work early.
    Please stay safe and stay home and if comment here, please use KIND WORDS for eachother.

  12. CitizenofKhi (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 12:38 am

    @Balma, you are trying to be funny at this moment of time too. You are mentally sick.

  13. HammerStorm (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 2:01 am

    @Doctor: for someone who calls himself a doctor, you are not very bright. Yes, our awam is bequsoor and ignoratn at the same time. They shouldn’t have to pay the price for this incident. An average person in karachi/pakistan is mostly worried about providing food and shelter for his family just like any other person in the rest of the world. do you really think that an average citizen would resort to rioting thinking it will bring BB back. Please!! your laughing at Citizenofkhi’s comment seems utterly ridiculous.

  14. Balma (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 2:16 am

    CitizenofKhi, if my mentioning of facts tickles your funny bone, what my father’s goes!

  15. d0ct0r (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 2:31 am

    @HammerStorm offcourse poor awam is the only looser in all this mayhem , i was just laughing at CitizenofKhi talking about bekusoor awaam while in the same breath blaming “PPP walay jahil kay bachay”

  16. HammerStorm (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 2:46 am

    Agreed. This is no time to play the blame game. Lets pray and hope everyone is safe and sound wherever they are and that we get through this crisis without anymore of this mindless mayhem.

  17. Ali K (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 2:51 am

    Err…Doctor, you honestly know shit. I just stopped by Gizri, and they guy running there burning shit was wearing PPP arm band. I think asked my Sindhi driver, and he said he knew the guy, and said he was actually a good whos just really upset right now. He also confirmed he was from PPP.

    So Hammerstorm was right, and you were wrong DOCTOR.

    btw, could you please change your name to moron ? will suit you better.

  18. d0ct0r (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 3:13 am

    @Ali yea your driver even had a photocopy of rioter’s CNIC and his PPP’s card .. i believe you ..

  19. d0ct0r (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 3:21 am

    just be logical, does MQM’s terrorists wear MQM arm band while they are busy threatening and closing down markets during strikes and other violent events?.. do all of them carry their political party’s flag? maybe after 12th may they’re now extra careful.. media can instantly expose terrorists live on tv..

  20. Ali K (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 5:25 am

    actually, i’ve seen mqm bums wearing their own arm bands as well. So thats a moot point DOC.

    Doctor, I dont have any beef with you. Im just saying that at least for Gizri, a bunch of people who are residents of the area, and who really like Benazir, are breaking shit down, cause theyre pissed at what happened to her, thats all.

    BTW, this might be of interest to you guys in general. My uncle was coming back from SITE area, and was stuck in teh traffic. Bunch of thugs came ot his car, and told him to get out, and turn the lights out. He said why the lights? To this they responded “aab tou karachi meh koi light nahi hoygee”

    I dont care if they are MQM, PPP, PML-N, PML-Q, MMA, Al-Qaeda, Lawyers, DOCTOR, MB, Adnan Siddiqui, Bush, who ever the hell, leave Pakistan alone!!!

    And specially leave karachi alone! wtf, everytime something happens, every idiot and his cousin starts burning this town…

    im starting to feel like balma, this inbreeding shit has gotta stop. ppl have gotta stop having allegiances to landlords, parties, etc, and gotta start loving Pakistan.

  21. Balma (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 9:30 am

    mei’n khushee say phoolaa nahi’n samaa rahaa keh kisee nay toe meree baat say ittefaq kyaa. Meri nigoRe maari qismat, itefaaq kyaa bhee to tub kyaa jub Karachi per museebat, actually Pakistan, per aayee huee hae.
    Stop cousin marriages, stop early marriages, limit of two kids per couple, descendant of shah nawaz bhutto banned from politics ( I will discuss shah nawaz bhutto another time), destroy illegally built masjids, send most mullahs to Andaman and nicobar (kala pani for non burgers) develop all parts of Pakistan, stop rural to urban population transfer, esp to KArachi, no more heavy industry in Karachi, and enforce ticket purchase in 3rd class sections of trains…no more free ride back and forth to Karachi, build 10 more universities in PK every year, send parents to jail if there kids don’t go to school, and so on. yeh hae Balma kaa manshoor…
    Military rule is bad, but look at these chhichoray looteray corrupt politicians… Look at this moron Navaz NoSharif, hosptial kay bahar khaRaa Tasway bahaa rahaa hae apnaa gole thobRaa liyae… He is fukcing speaking for the jiyalas now. Koee apnee jan say jaae, iss ko votes kee paRee hae…though I believe he is not as bad as she was. Aur iss fucking qazi ko haRtaal karnee hae, jaao noshehra ko barbaad karo, Karachi kay peechhay kyoo’n paR gayaa hae?

    @balma: take a glass of water + a tablet of lexotanil.

  23. Rashid Hasan (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 12:19 pm

    Balma, absolutely on the money especially about Mullahs. People are burning down banks and govt. properties plus personal properties. Why not burn some madarsaas down , some illegal mosques?
    Mullahs are the real enemy. Political Religion and its champions are the real enemy.

    God forbid if she has died in Karachi. They would have burned down the whole city. Go f*$k the tribal areas and other madarsaa regions. That is where the evil has raied its head. Animals, Islamists bastards. They knew this time Benazir will bring it to them so they acted and killed her before she would. But their days are numbered.

  24. Ali K (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 4:46 pm

    So true Rashid…

    @IUNKNOWN: take a glass of water + my foot up your ass.

    Thank you.

  26. darthvader (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 9:20 pm

  27. Balma (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 9:54 pm

    darthvader, if a girl like you had made a comment like this paanch duss saal pehlay, Balma khushee say mar naa jaataay….blah blah can’t remember ghalib’s shaer.

  28. IUnknown (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 10:26 pm

    khushi say mar na jatey ger aitibaar hota :)

  29. CitizenofKhi (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 10:28 pm

    @Balma, I haven’t seen anybody agreed on whatever you have said ever, except reality_check and alam, and I am pretty much sure that its you who use both these nicks too.
    I am sure you will use some other nicks now to support you.

    Your are such a lame duck mentally retarted and stupid a$$.

  30. Darthvader (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 10:56 pm

    Balma: if the assumption that i am a girl makes you feel better about yourself than believe you me ,you have more problems than Benazir with the real accountabilty beaurau up there …LOL
    and the ghalib ka shair that you are trying to remember is :
    hazaroon khuwaishen aisee ke …….
    you know the rest.

    no slight intended just having fun and i do agree with a lot that you have to say .

  31. Balma (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 12:10 am

    Seems like you are about to join the ranks of few idiots who are actually me myself, as citizenofkhi believes. Please stand in the line behind Alam Ara and Reality_Check. abay, mai’n toe khud paraishaan ho gayaa hoo’n kay mae’n kitnaay naamo’n say likhtaa hoo’n. I am getting headache balancing my multiple personalities. Help!

  32. d0ct0r (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 2:53 am

    don’t worry moderators can easily filter out/identify/block all persons using multiple nicks.. seems like they’re just tolerating and being lenient with them

    I was at National Medical Centre today. Hasn’t been set ablaze at all. Some people tried. But it’s safe and sound.
