    While smaller denomination notes do get worn out and might not be preferably crispy but the larger denomination notes are reasonably crispy and should be used. after all crispiness does not somehow appreciate the value of currency..


    Actually you didn’t sent the right guy,next time send your peon instead and you won’t have to wait for 20 days.. ;)

    guys bookmark this page press ctrl+d just because d0ct0r didn’t blame MQM and Altaf Hussain and also he is for the first time making some sense may be he is in good eid mood… good going buddy!! eid mubarak!

  7. d0ct0r on October 2nd, 2008 @ 8:09 pm

    Muzz now that you have mentioned Altaf bai and MQM i am impelled to make a comment.

    Altaf bai does not deserve either your crispy or worn out hard earned notes(zakat) to ‘make his ends meet’ ,look around you, you would find many other needy and far more deserving people then him..

    Quaid(-e-Azam)’s picture on the note is pleading to save him from fake Quaid(-e-Tehreek Pir of London Town) ;)

    muzz ur a little immature kid for bringing the filth up again…. how do u guyz manage to bring the same topic up in every single post!?!

  9. ameerhamza on October 3rd, 2008 @ 7:02 pm

    I got only 50 notes of crisp. 100 Rs (totaling 5000 rs) after waiting for around half an hour at HBL, Kekkashan branch, Clifton, Karachi. But it was worth the wait!

    And on the last roza (29th) I got 10 rupee notes (100 notes totaling 1000) for my neighbor!


  10. muzz on October 3rd, 2008 @ 8:10 pm

    there he is the ever whiny d0ct0r
    @hbrehman i agree and i am sorry… but i was really worried about d0ct0r :P

  11. rockfella25 on October 4th, 2008 @ 12:16 pm

    Hey guys pls dont fight over it. If Altaf needs zakat, let him take it ok. after all their days are numbers in karachi, Jamatis are comming back pretty soon along with ANP to take back control of "mandate of Karachi"

    Then we will see if actually 82% of Karachiites really voted for MQM.
    As far as i know, the actual voting is 52%, plus 30% bogus & multiple votes.

  12. d0ct0r on October 4th, 2008 @ 12:45 pm

    82% of Karachiites really voted for MQM ? LOL who claimed that?

    Not even half of that voted for MQM, i did some maths..

  13. rockfella25 on October 4th, 2008 @ 2:22 pm

    i cant verify it but i read it somewhere on this forum from one of the "mandate of karachi" and "wishes of people of karachi" proponents.

    so much just has been posted here by these low lives that its hard to make out anything usefull out of it,

    inshallah ANP & PTI are comming down to take back the actual / unadultrated vote of karachi.

  14. rockfella25 on October 4th, 2008 @ 2:26 pm

    *typo, so much just = so much junk

    muzz …. i appreciate what you said…. thanks …. v need that sort of spirit …people should learn from u…

    Normally each year around eid time forex inflows increases and pressure on exchange rate eases off as many expatriate pakistani come here for eid or send forex to their loved ones here for eid ,this time even during eid season exchange rate is under immense pressure despite stringent measures like imposition of L/C margin and increased duties the forex outflow continues at a unprecedented rate.

    Hilariously Mr President is expecting $100 billion in aid from the world.Now there is nothing wrong in wishing,like they say if wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.But lets get real, keeping his track record in mind he should be thankful if he even manages to get 10%(his lucky number ;P ) of that amount.While he is begging $100 billion from the world there is talk of two weekly holidays (to save electricity).A sunday off means 52 yearly holidays two days weekly off means 104 days(3.5 months) wasted yearly. This is totally insane..

  20. shoaib on October 5th, 2008 @ 3:04 pm

    Are you sure you said PTI is coming to take Karachi. HAHAHAHA. I am really folding with laughter

  21. khaled on October 5th, 2008 @ 5:13 pm


    The punjabi establishment needs new face instead of Nawaz as West is not willing to shake hand with nawaz after his love affair with Osama Bin Laden is made public.

    Punjabi Establishment needs someone who has every single characteristic of a punjabi leader so Imran Khan is the right choice, A Certified International Zaani, Drug trafficker is quite suitable and this is the reason why Imran Khan is given soo much space on live TV.

    Imran Former Wife also have the same characteristics and now having illegal sexual relations with hugh grant even going out with out penties.

    Soo in the near future Imran might get some more attention but as Nawaz Don’t want to loose his lime light the battle rages and can result a Merger or few seats to imran from punjab but both work for Punjabi Nationalism.

  22. rockfella25 on October 5th, 2008 @ 11:50 pm

    Nawaz Sharif is the only leader besides Imran Khan who did not bend over backwards to please the US, even if that cost them the elections

  23. khaled on October 6th, 2008 @ 1:34 am

    @ Rockfilla
    The whole punjabi establishment is licking boots of US since the day Bhutto was hanged and before, It was Punjab who put Pakistan into soo called jehad and US war against Russia, It is punjab who still hosts the Jehadis who adopted the new name of talibans.

    Just wait a little don’t worry every thing will be crystal clear in just few months .

  24. ameerhamza on October 6th, 2008 @ 11:56 am

    100 Rs. notes are fast becoming useless as Pakistan’s economy and consequently, it currency, recedes.

  25. kaami on October 7th, 2008 @ 2:58 am

    @ROCKFELLA Mr. Sharif is a chotaa bhanda, with limited IQ, limited courage, limited ideas and limited fan base outside Punjab. In international circles noboby takes him seriously (mainly because his stupidity), so he bends over backwards to Saudi’s. One more reason for his file not being cleared is his past contacts with Osama Bin Laden, though he has tried to re-assure those who matter. He tried through Benazir to put in a good word for him but that was not to be, She used him by persuading him to participate in the election, taking her advice is the only wise thing he has done since the death of Abba Jee.

    As for Imran Khan his mentor is the crack pot Hameed Gul, whose dreams of exporting a particular brand of Jihaad (which he helped developed) in the whole region, is largely to blame for the current state of affairs of our country.

  26. rockfella25 on October 7th, 2008 @ 11:34 am

    People are least concerned concerned with who the mentor is, its the final product = IMRAN KHAN that matters.

    If mentors were the case, London Wala bhai seems to be your mentor, do you necessarily preach the same voilence?

    Mustafa Kamal has the same mentor as does Haider Abbas Rizvi, but only one of them turned out to be fine tuned product, i.e. Mustafa Kamal.

  27. بستنی (wasiq) on October 7th, 2008 @ 1:16 pm

    Hi guys I suvived the summer and the Eid….Karachi from Quaid Mazar to sea view has become very beautiful..roads and flyovers are complete…Old trees which were falling down have been cut down and new and better plants planted the grass is greener… its really wonder ful to be here…the only problem I face is that I can’t find a single person who can tell the price of flour and pulses for sure…..price of egg is very stable.


  28. kaami on October 7th, 2008 @ 7:45 pm


    Yes its exactly the same reason why I am concerned about the final product Imran Khan because I know what he stands for or rather I don’t know what he stands for, mentors or no mentors. Not to mention his Houdini inspired disappearing acts during crucial moments in our recent past. For me he is a confused personality with unclear views on issues such as tribalism, hudood, exporting terrorism, and the west with no grasp of economics. He is a mixed bag of outdated idealism + contradictions in conduct, not worth wasting time, however, good luck to you.

    You mentioned violence, true I don’t preach it, but at the same time as a person who has personally witnessed the cold blooded massacres of innocents of Hyderabad and Qasbah., who has had the haunting experience of driving a car while trying to avoid dead bodies. I don’t take violence or the threat of it, lightly and I support the party that has provided a sense of security to its people (when our police and military failed miserably) plus given it young dynamic leaders like Haider Abbas Rizvi and Mustafa Kamal. Comparing the two does not make sense because both of them hold distinct and contrasting positions. One is a city mayor the other political figure head and they are part of a great overall team which has done wonders in the recent past. From the governor to the ministers not to mention the nazims and the councillors, all have publically demonstrated that they are the only ones who can selflessly serve and protect their people.

    As for me I am a free thinker with no mentors, keeping an eye on who is saying / doing what and that’s fun!
