Drama at Textile Institute of Pakistan?

Im hearing of some unconfirmed reports of a large mob attacking the Textile Institute of Pakistan and ransacking the canteen, library, many classrooms, machinery and offices as well.

Many students are trapped inside the hostel building, parts of which have also been ransacked. The mob is still there. Reporst are suggesting there are over 100 students there at the moment.

Apparently the students have spoken to someone at the Rangers and are arranging an escorted escape from the building to end theire ordeal.

Does anyone have updates on this?

    It’s true. I’m a student there and I’ve heard the same. a lot of my friends are still trapped there. We have no clue what to do for them…

    >>> horrifying picture,why do people start acting like animals all of a sudden! :(

    I am surprised at ur surprise. Didn’t everyone there slaughter animals on the streets few days ago? Are not the streets red with blood and animals intestines?

    Alam, I can’t believe I am pointing this out to you but here it goes anyway: There is a difference between a human being and a bovine.

    >>> There is a difference between a human being and a bovine.

    There is always a compensating ‘difference’ or consolation factor that apologists like u can find out. Like “I only kill whores on the streets”, or “I kill pedophiles only, they r not human beings”, etc etc.

    Is this the one located in PECHS located just off Sharah-e-quaideen?

    Alma
    are you a vegetarian?
    if not then you have no right to criticize the butchering of animals because you eat meat as well and that meat was also butchered, so your just being a hypocrite.

    Ok we get it, your not muslim
    good for you
    now can you do us a favor and stop lecturing us on why we shouldn’t be muslims.

    @MOHSIN

    it doesn’t matter who I am and what bestiality with animals i get involved in. What matters is that Doctor’s surprise with the killing mayhem on KHI street was vert ‘surprising’.

    When u start behaving as civilized ppl to everyone (yeah, including animals), then these surprises do matter.

    And yes, as a matter of fact, ppl should stop believing is supernatural myths. And last I checked, Islam is a ‘imaan bil ghaib’ (according to Quran)


  10. Mohsin (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 2:13 am

    @ALMA
    first off you are right it doesn’t matter what kind of bestiality you get involved in, but once you start condemning people for what you freely do then you my friend are what we call a hypocrite.

    and so what that Doctor was surprised?
    thats his opinion and he has the right to it, are you now going to deny him his opinion because you don’t agree with it?

    and again with the preaching
    ok Mullah ALMA
    you can stop now, we get it and we promise to abide by your OPINIONS but please for the love of (non existent?) God please stop with the preaching.

    @Mohsin

    mian ji, i am not preaching anything. I am just surprised at the Dr’s surprise…thats all. I was expecting him to explain his surprise but then u dropped in and went in tangent, on Islam, mullah, etc.

    I am all for all ppl killing each other with no distinction. Thats what failed societies do. Its an established pattern. What seems strange and out-of-pattern…I try to understand.

    I read Manto a long time ago about his short stories on partition. He recounted a story where Hindu attackers grabbed a Msulim in train, and then decieded to slaughter him right there in the train. One of them shouted to his friend: “Don’t slaughter this bastard here, u will make a mess here for others”.

    I wonder if you, Doctor and your likes in KHI, even had this sense of decency and cleanliness.


  12. MOHSIN (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 3:34 am

    @ALMA
    Well see now if you wanted to get Doctor to explain himself you could of just asked rather then making it sound like you were criticizing his opinion
    its like the saying goes, “you get more flies with honey then vinegar”

    Also I am not from Karachi, I don’t even live in Pakistan, so I don’t know when you mean when you say
    “you, Doctor and your likes in KHI”
    could you explain that to me please.

    as for the rest of your post if you are trying to say that killing people is ok as long as its done in a “civilized” manner then I must say I am shocked and appalled by such statements.
    but then again thats the kind of morality I should expect from a preacher of Godlessness


  13. ALAM (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 4:00 am

    >>> Well see now if you wanted to get Doctor to explain himself you could of just asked

    yeah, thats what i did….read my reply…i wrote “@Doctor” first. It means I am directly talking with him, or want to engage with him. not you, not ur mama, just the Doctor.

    >>> what you mean when you say “you, Doctor and your likes in KHI”

    Well, even if u dont live somewhere, dont u think ppl with the same deviant mindset as urs can live there as well?

    >>> as for the rest of your post if you are trying to say that killing people is ok as long as its done in a “civilized” manner

    I didn’t say or imply that for regular ppl/societies . What I implied was that there should be consistency in moral values, espoused by a person. You can’t just easily murder a man, but then think about cleanliness. You can’t just have sex with every woman u see, but then kill ur own sister if she is found dating someone. I see a butcher with dirty and blood-stained dhoti and banyain, and I am fine with that. You can’t just throw stones at a stray dog, and then wonder why ur kid was beaten by his teacher at school. I see a gay man looking for sex partners in public bathrooms, that doesn’t disturb me…but when I see him with his loving wife and 3 kids, that makes me wonder a lot.

    Its confusing as hell….thats all i was ‘surprised’ at the Doctor’s surprise :)

    @Mohsin

    Since when did slaughtering an animal yourself, watching it die and its blood flow through the streets make you anything but a butcher?

    And for the record, when did NOT wanting any part in that make one a vegetarian or a non-muslim.

    Screw your head on straight, mate.


  15. Danish (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 2:29 pm

    What is wrong with u guys…there’s so much damage being done to the city, people are losing their lives and all you guys care about is making your point and fighting with one another over petty issues…It’s time to be united..so what if one person has a different opinion on things..give respect and earn respect and constant conflict of words will do no good to any of you.


  16. MOHSIN (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 3:20 pm

    @alma

    …..HUH?
    your post made as much sense as Spanish to me.
    there was something about killing sisters and gay men, but I really could not follow your trail of thought. also could you kindly stop using Urdu as I am not fluent in it and have no idea what you are saying.

    @Lies
    see @ALMA
    I think you are confused with the point I was trying to make. If you are going to preach against the butchering of animals then you would be wise to be a veterinarian, otherwise you are a hypocrite and no one likes a hypocrite.


  17. MOHSIN (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 4:45 pm

    @MOHSIN
    I think you mean vegetarian rather then veterinarian.


  18. Shoaib Ikram Ahmed (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 7:20 pm

    Well i am a student of TIP and was in hostel when this horrific incident took place, and i CONFIRM that intruders have done a significant damage to weaving lab, spinning lab , wet processing lab, designing studio and library.
    There have been nearly 80 students there in hostel anyhow now they have been transported to city campus under security this morning. So there is no ambiguity what so ever in this incident.

    No the PECHS campus is the city campus.TIP main campus is at national highway spread over 50 acres.
