Bakra House @ Clifton

Talk about interesting things in Karachi! This house is in Clifton and as mentioned in this Flickr comment discussion, it seems to have gone thru a number of changes. Any idea of what is the intent here?

    I agree with you on the Bhatta that existed at a point but doesnt happen any more. I agree they prob get kick backs on projects but hey as long as my city prospers I dont mind if they earn a little money. This is far better then wht bb and Mr 10% did to khi. Nothing moved in that period.

    MK said it best when he said only people who have a stake in the city will genuinly help the city and MQM has a stake in the city.

    As for the alleged force marrying is concerned, I honestly dont rem that. Where do you get your facts from. I agree there was alot of killings in those days but nothing like wht u said. On the contrary I can easily quote a number of Bhai Log (MQM), who actually make sure no one messes with the womanfolk in their area.

    I have said it before and I will say it again, MQM is better then most, they show results.

    AMMAR and others,

    Don’t be emotionally blackmailed by your ethinic association with MQM. Thats the same thing we accuse others of doing.

    If we are educated, then we should support whats right and should not make judgements based on our ethnic affiliations.

    How can we accuse others of some sin and then make it justifiable for our own selves. Isn’t it hypocricy?

    All I can do is pray that Allah cleanse the hearts of Muhajirs, Sindhis, Panjanbis, Pakhtoons, Baluchs, Siraikes, Bultistanis et etc, Ameeen

    dont give me phylosophy, give me facts.

    Who is making a decision based on ethnic association, My decision is based on my life in khi over the last 30 years and logically MQM is the best choice as I have only seen development and commitment in their time.

    Think about it yar,

    Hmmm interesting. Its not ethnic association my dear SIRJEE. Atleast education doesn’t give you this. It will be the last thing one will do. If some one is voting for Shahbaz Sharif in Lahore, will that mean its the ethnic bias, not its the work he has done there. The same goes for Karachi. Only those who have done good here will have the votes. Its a global village and has immediate accountability. People will vote for those who have done good and who are better than others. Every one knows who is the best. First time they got the chance to serve for full five years and you can see the change and the change is positive. More will be come, have patience and lets tolerate each other

    Ammar isn’t it all too obvious that the last comment was also posted by you using my nick,you really don’t expect me to be using Altaf bai’s cheap street lingo & ethnic comments.. you really need to do alot better then that..

    Actually, the house is next door to mine, and was my relative’s (A.R. Adamjee) house. The whole compound has been sold though only that portion has moved out.

    its nothing to do with bakras at all–they keep painting it ridiculous colors to stir up buzz (like what is happening here) so when they do build something people will remember it. I dont know where all this political discussion has popped up from in a post about an oddly painted house…

    Thanks Hisham for finally jumping in. If you could have come earlier this non sense debate would not lasted so long.

    thanks hisham, really.
    good to see that not EVRYBODY who visit KMB likes to jump from a very simple, straight topic to a political one.
