Another Mineral Water in Town

Mineral Water
Thanks to our (all) governments whose incompetency in providing basic necessities of life one of which is clean water we have seen tremendous growth of companies selling mineral water and they are using the indifference of the gov. for their profiteering. As one of KMB author said “if our gov. doesn’t do anything NOW there would be a DAY when WE WOULD BE BREATHING OXYGEN by paying to companies”. His comments seem like a joke for now but so did the mineral water issue 100 years back that was considered free along with oxygen ever since we heard it.

Economically if there is a family of 5-7 people (avg. in PAKISTAN/KARACHI) and each drinks only one bottle of water for 15-20 rupees it means they are drinking 4K rupee water every month to make sure they don’t get impure water and stay safe from disease & considering inflation rate is in double digits. One by one our governments are stealing eyes from their responsibilities. For electricity it’s the GENERATOR/UPS etc. companies and for waters these mineral companies. How on earth the ordinary man would live a decent life then? This is indifference at its peak.

The citizens should get united and demand a closure of these companies and strict enforcement of laws on WATER, Its supply and its cleanliness as well as new connections and proper maintenance INSTEAD of stealing eyes from its responsibility.

The capitalist mentality and the tendency to make profit from every bit & piece for few people or a class of group at the cost of compromising the ISLAMIC ideology of a welfare state would be catastrophic in the long run.

    i’ve even read the idea of the oxygen releasing vending machines on every corner of the road, coz in no-so-distant future u’ll need constant supply of oxygen when u r on the roads…And after some years, those machines will be produced on mass basis to be installed in the houses…where r we heading :|

    We were fool enough to help the Capitalist take over the world and now we shall pay the price. They are not sparing anything. Just about anything and they are trying to extract money from every bit and piece of the world.

    This is just one example
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/urdu/sport/story/2008/04/080423_cricket_show.shtml

    The game that was for sober and gentlemen has now become a theater or movie set or something. Soon there would be religious commercialism and we are already seeing a hint of it in people like Dr. Amir Liaqat who look like more of a fashion fundo then any scholar or something.

    There are TV programs coming in which they are trying to show how we can follow WEST yet follow ISLAMIC principles too, thus either making a joker out of ourselves or trying to please the so called SECULAR forces.

    IQBAL asked people to revise the interpretation of QURAN for modern times but we labeled him a kafir and since now we dont have answers to modern inventions/concepts and those who do claim to have are many and keep fighting between em the MUSLIM ummah overall especially in PAKISTAN where there are so many ethnics and religious groups . . . . we have become a HIJRA nation not knowing which direction to follow.

    ISLAM is more close to SOCIALISM but we whip its ass in 70s n 80s to please USA.

    Now pay the price you all !!
