    apparently the 3rd robber also succumbed to injuries

    Three robbers burnt alive in Karachi
    “In a shocking incident of vigilante justice, a mob in Karachi on Wednesday burnt three bandits alive near the Timber Market’

    ‘The wrath of the mob was unforgiving’

    this violent mob culture is growing in karachi..

    mob burns lawyers after locking them up
    mob burns cars parked on the road
    mob burns public transport
    mob beats protesters outside press club
    mob aka awami rad-e-amal calks abusive slogans overnight all over city walls and streets
    mob aka awami rad-e-amal threatens cable operators and close down channels

    law and law enforcers are weak while mob is getting barbaric,fearless & stronger by the day

    @Adnan as calyps pointed out mustafa kamal is back, Siraj durrani had the upper hand in KWSB and water board issue despite MQM’s whining and blackmailing , first they were whining and black mailing about shoaib suddle issue and went on to announce that talks had failed and they would be sitting in opposition benches when it didn’t worked then they had no choice but to accept wat ever they was being offered to them, after all they were only interested in ministries and their lust for power made them join the govt

    there is no option to ‘suggest a story’ as was available in previous version of KMB?

  10. zeeshan on May 15th, 2008 @ 8:51 pm

    This mother**** has nothing but to sit here on KMB and flame everything

  11. qnomans2k on May 16th, 2008 @ 12:04 am

    I think the post had nothing to had with MQM / Mustufa kamal, the story of 3 burnt . It’s about an event Humara karachi.

    And as always, people like Doctor, Teeth mastero, Adnan Siddiqui, MB had proved that they can;t see any thing good happening in the city.
    From the very beginning the have ruined the real purpose the blog. ( Let me remind them, this blog is to promote your city, to market ur city and if you have any problem with city, people of the city, events in the city or the ruling party of the city please i request u ppl to leave the city.)

    Most of the KMB readers are now fed up of ur pathetic comments.
    And I request every one ppl who are pro MQM or against MQM . Please use this blog for the right purpose.

    I fully agree with you qnomans2k, I have been visiting this blog frequestly since past 2 months but always found the follwoing ppl fighting like slum childeren:

    Balma, doctor,Teeth mastero, Adnan Siddiqui, MB. Esp Balma and Doctor, these two guys have never contributed anything constructive in any of the blogs. Doctor is like Indian govt. Just like they blame every thing on Pakistan, doctor blames everything on MQM (i am dead sure that when ever he gets nightmares, he blames MQM for even that) while Balma is a die hard MQM supporter who literally worshipps the party. Well i guess this is the way things are in Khi, I have seen ppl like them so I am not amazed.

    Please dont get me wrong I hate all the political parties (esp MQM & Jamaat-e-Islami) but still I am greatful to Mr Naimatullah and Mustufa Kamal for working for Karachi. We need ppl like these two.

    how do we kick d0ct0r out and save the blog?

  14. saim on May 16th, 2008 @ 4:47 pm

    This blog should monitor on what one writes and should allow only those ppl to write who are here for some sincere comments and not to bash others (on the basis of religion/language) and not to start unnecessary arguments on politics.

    Bhai Saab or aapaa jan, aap kee tabiyat tou theek hae?

    Plus, I don’t like this "like it or leave it" mashvarah of qnoman!

  16. qnomans2k on May 17th, 2008 @ 12:38 am

    @Balma ….
    Please don;t take this question as wrong. Just asking you what else you would say for the people commenting against ur city (may be some times they are right but always they are wrong in they way they criticize) , doing nothing constructive, using the city only for their favor, always on with biased criticism.

  17. d0ct0r (d0ctor) on May 18th, 2008 @ 2:02 am

    as too much fuss has been created MQM’s sympathizers,obviously i won’t resort to their level of abusing or personally attacking,i would simply clarify..

    normally Mustafa Kamal loves opening or inaugurating events so apparently adnan was curious if he had returned from USA or not,although he was back from USA but he was busy with some more important issues i.e. KWSB and water board issue, although i thought that issue was settled and Siraj Durrani had an upper hand in all tussle but it seems wrangling & haggling continues,(MQM won’t let the geese that lays golden egss slip away that easily,its instant bhata for them without much effort),reportedly today City Nazim canceled all KBCA’s site plans and maps approved in month of may under new setup of Siraj Durrani and ordered all town Nazims to demolish all such construction approved in this the tussle continues

    Balma is a die hard MQM supporter

    atleast i disagree with that one..maybe you folks are new in here so you might have made that assumption

  18. saim on May 19th, 2008 @ 9:55 am

    As i am new thus I could be wrong about Balma therefore I am sorry for that and my sincere appologies to balma for that, but the issue remains where it was. Ppl come here not to discuss issues but to thrash the political party which they hate and support the one which they love unnecessarily and this is something no one can deny.
