Cameras are not allowed

Today when I went to watch cricket match between India and Srilanka I amazed to know that I can not take my camera with me in National Stadium but as every Karachite know how to deal this kind of situation I tried other gate and with confidence I said “Press” (I do not belong to any press or media) and police wala allowed me. Do you people have any clue why we are not allowed to take our camera with us in stadium?

    And how proud you are to tell lie and break the law. Never ever complain of any thing, ok ?

    People like you explain why our system is in collapse today — qatron say darya bantay hain. You lied and broke the rule for such a small thing just to know why cameras aren’t allowed? Why didn’t you ask the gatekeeper that question? You had to go to the other gate to break the law, didn’t you. And on top of that you have the guts (or are too naive) to come proudly tell that on a blog site? Your loyalty to your country and integrity as a Muslim have to be screwed, or else I need to go check with my psychiatrist.

    Karachi, a place where people are facing 6-8 hours of loadshedding, is it feasible to have night matches here in heavy lights?

    excellent point! I have been thinking on this point … our behavior for energy crisis… being a nation we have been demolished

    @retroguy02 I asked same question from DSP who was incharge there about this but he got offended and said "Not at all !" and did not tell me the reason. Is there any reason to disallow camera in stadium ?
    Once I was stopped by taking photographs in Karachi Zoo is there any reason?
    Brother people just afraid of camera because this one eye monster can unveil the truth.

    Raja don’t bother trying to figure out the reasons. You cannot find logic in the actions of sub-continental monkeys. They would not be able to tell the difference between a Canon or a Cannon even if it was shoved up their nose. Click away and enjoy.

    i went to the first match b/w India and Pak and had a camera with me, nobody bothered me and was in straight away, when i went inside i could see ziLLions of camera’s.. point is you met the wrong guy(policeman) at the wrong gate at the wrong time. This is Pakistan where nothing is impossible.

    Ages ago things were bit different I was in the queue to the Karachi stadium we allow to take cameras but without batteries Yes I know doesn’t make any sense does it?
    But at that time I didn’t lie to any one and took the batteries out from camera and hold in my hands, I raised my had and a Police Walla checked me all over then let me in. I didn’t bother to think why? couse i know "Ya Hai Pakistan Aapna" and I still proud to be paki….
