    LOL is Bristish barrister AK Chisti chief editor or reporter for this newspaper?

    According to law of the land there was no restriction on sending any amount of money outside the country. So if their crime is just that then they’ll be out very soon,but if there is some thing more to it all then they’re screwed . Plus although any amount was allowed to be legally taken out of country BUT when they(Khananis) will provide(or might have already done so) the list(of who sent how much) then that could raise eyebrows .

    People like Baber Ghauri are already having sleepless nights .

    Now, do you bloggers realize, how well Musharraf ran this country and how crazy this place can really become. Ahh…If only we were patient, there was no need to commit suicide.

    All that can be said now is "Ab bhugtou meray bhai ab bhugtou! waqeeloun, choroun or black mailing journalists ke chakkar mein parho ge tou yehee hoga"

    The only policies that these returning fools from UAE, Saudia and London have are "Beg for Money" and create sensational diversions. In the past eight years with the free movement of currency allowed, more was coming in than going out, now its a one way traffic and society is prone to rumour / fear mongerring. Its back to the old days.

    Well done my fellow countrymen, you deserve this.

    Another attempt to expand the rift between Karachi and rest of Pakistan.

  7. Adnan Siddiqi (adnansiddiqi) on November 18th, 2008 @ 1:22 am

    it’s so lame that people bring Musharraf as a "Messiah" for every matter as if he is "Surf Excel"?

    get over it. He’s gone! One day he will die too like many others. Yeah you are become mojawar of his grave. *shrug*

  8. Adnan Siddiqi (adnansiddiqi) on November 18th, 2008 @ 1:23 am

    I mean Musharraf Remnants remind me the Ad:

    Surf Excel hay na! ;)

  9. saadshah on November 18th, 2008 @ 1:27 am

    Jeeyay "Musharraf Bhai" for all the good tht he’s dne for this country!!! :D

    how well Musharraf ran this country

    Yea we should thank him for the current mess we are facing. In an interview he conveniently blamed it all on Shortcut Aziz and asked him to come and defend his policies but to his dismay Shortcut wasn’t willing to come back. anways lets leave the dictator and talk about this news.

    Somebody tell this stupid newspaper that raids in Quetta and Peshawar were conducted to bust Afghanis. These Afghanis and Afghan transit trade is causing SO much Damage to the Pakistani economy that it has crippled 90% of Pakistani businesses. Afghani traders sitting in Quetta and Peshawar send our valuable foreign currency out and import stuff duty/tax free and instead of consignment entering in Afghanistan it detours and end up here in Pakistani markets. Despite so called coalition forces in Afghanistan increased Poppy trade,Smuggling remains unchecked and Afghanis continue to import stuff by buying cash dollars from Pakistani market causing a serious crunch here.

    @ADNDAN & DOCTOR Yes Musharraf has gone and with him the fortunes of this country and I will not let you and KMB forget that. He is a straight forward gentleman who as far as I am concerned never shied away from admitting his mistakes but as far as I can remember he always defended the policies of his government, perhaps he was too good for this country of fools. And whatever you say about Shaukat Aziz, he was hundred times better than this lot from Saudia and UAE. He brought billions in investment to Pakistan, whereas, these geniuses can only trigger an exodus.

    Before March 2008, no matter what the circumstances capital was coming in, currency was strong / stable and there was no profit in sending it abroad, now there is a huge incentive otherwise. Before foreign Banks were acquiring assets merging and buying local banks and now they are contemplating winding up.

    Here goes another bastard who is working on foreign payrolls to divide this nation. Why can’t government take notice of the language used by these newspapers? Karachi vs. Punjabi, Sindhi vs. Mahajir, Pashtun vs Baloch etc etc etc. Americans are electing former black slaves and we are still busy screwing around on these meaningless crape. When, as a nation we will reject idiots like these? I hope soon. I would like get my hands on this editor and kick his arse. We don’t need this…

  13. enggwaqas on November 18th, 2008 @ 4:17 am

    omg! whats going on in khi! trying to increase a gap between khi and punjab….

  14. human01 on November 18th, 2008 @ 10:37 am

    Hamid Bro, Americans don’t need to pay a dime to any body to divide this nation…we already are & sorry to say…we always were….Irony is! Our memories are like goldfish & we don’t remember what we have been doing since last 60 some years of independence….and still we don’t realize, don’t learn…..look at the names of our provinces…based on ethnicity…..our president call NWFP as Pakhtoonkhuwah…what a joke…..look at the biggest OOPS we had in 1971 and still we have no regrets, no remorse….most tragic thing is, there is no change in course…. we are heading towards the same direction…the same path of further disintegration………Dude nations do not become one just by iterating the word unity….the actions made them united, the true will & intention strengthens unity…..all of which simply doesn’t exists in our case…..

    Talibanization is where jurisdiction of religion is enforced to every walk of life, from legislation to education and from sports to personal conduct of private citizens and that’s what the religious bigots are trying to do to Pakistan and to Karachi – especially post-FATA Operations where the Talibans are migrating to Karachi. And it’s great we have already started to work on the plans to counter this grave threat to our way of life and in time – they will be forced to migrate to their misrable huts back to 12th Century Huts..….

    BTW, These Talibans finds Punjabis as natural allies – the Punjos of Karachi will go to any heights to harm Mohajirs (we had seen many examples before…) and we should start profiling such people.

    Punjabis are the Serbs of Pakistan (The Yugoslav Army was largely a Serb Army, as the Pak Fauj is largely a Punjabi enterprise) and we should all be aligned in unison against there bigotry, facism and politics – btw, Punjabigardi was part of a topic of a federal minister’s son’s wedding couple of days back…apparently, Punjabi’s happens to one species universally hated in Pakistan and India….Even Serbs in Belgrade now acknowledge the
    sins of their extremists…The Punjabis punished the local Pakistanis, mostly Mohajirs, with collective punishments and cruelty reminiscent of the acts of another generation of Punjabi soldiers in East Pakistan….How could rest of Pakistanis and especially we Mohajirs forgive Punjabis? And Talibans?

    I am no economist or financial guru but let me comment on Mush and Shortcut Aziz anyway.

    Financial gurus Shaukat Aziz are good at number fudging,they can paint rosy pictures while they are at the helm of affairs but once they leave the scene,things start to crumble.

    Monopolies and cartels were nurtured and encouraged during dictators regime, be it Cement cartel,Auto cartel,Sugar Cartel,Dairy cartel etc. In a country which no stringent rules and regulation in place to safeguard it consumers obviously exploiters from around the world headed to Pakistan to make quick bucks..

    When quick money is being made then obviously there is something wrong with the system. Money is not meant to be made quickly even in developed world. Lax rules and regulations and loopholes in system made it possible for crooks to make quick money,obviously no where else in the world was it all possible except for this banana republic .

    The so called good economic policies had started to crumble while Mush was at the scene,Mega figure Fudging right before elections was done to benefit pro Mush parties like Q League and MQM which adversely affected the economy.When coalition government was formed after election in FEB the then finance minister was asked by the political leadership to make public the economic condition of the country as of that date that was inherited from the previous regime,Ishaq Dar along with Sherry Rehman disclosed the balance sheet in a press conference ,obviously it was not a rosy picture as Shaukat Aziz and Mush had been projecting but it was a bitter reality that had to accepted.

    In all this mess West’s role isn’t that positive either,whenever there is a dictator in power they twist their rules and laws to accommodate the dictator and they keep the money supply smooth,while once the democratic forces come on the scene every harsh rule and law is religiously applied and they always tighten the rope around Pakistan’s neck.

    well well well
    whats going on here ??

    The criminals are those pasting those posters or the people actually having parties??

    anywayz Sunni Tehreek is also against Talibanization and they also joined their voices with MQM against talibans and i guess that was the reason of killings of MQM and ST workers in Karachi.

    People of karachi do know that who are the real terrorists in karachi

    @DOCTOR First of all I would like to take exception to your repeated use of the word dictator viz a viz Musharraf. His was by far the most open government we had since the formation of this country. Both in terms of financial openness i.e all the books were made public, plus the civil liberties we got that we could not have dreamt before. Even Imran Aslam of Geo admitted that it would not have been possible for him to caricature (like they did of Mush) a ruler in any previous regimes and hope to stay free. So a dictator gave you freedom and openness, furthermore he ensured at all cost that the democratic process is not jeopardized, albeit supervised and nurtured. Furthermore he did not steel or run away, he sincerely tried to do what was right for the country, and that’s quality lacking in our past and present leaders.

    And there was no phoney number juggling, the economy until 2007 was on a firm footing and the balance sheet was looking good. It was in 2007, the election year when on one hand the political interests pushed for oil subsidy, whereas, the prices of oil spiralled to un-expected heights, plus the elections dragged on due to instability at home. All this affected the balance sheet, but still we had the reserves, good Moody / S&P ratings and the capital / investor was staying put. Until Messrs. Ishaq Dar brought the whole house down by not only presenting Pakistan in a bad way in international forums but also directly threatening the business, which until that time despite the assassinations and elections was staying put.

    Furthermore, nobody said that everything was rosy, however, the stage was set to take it forward to the next level by continuing the hard work and rectifying the mistakes. Instead we brought the whole house down.

    You continue, blaming the west for supporting dictators and not democracy by not doling out free bees to the corrupt lot that we have now. I say why blame others when our own are shifting their capital and offices to Dubai. Money has a mind of its own it doesn’t stays at a place where it sees a loss. The decline in Pakistan Credit ratings, if you read the yesterdays DAWN is mainly due to loss of confidence / trust and political instability / upheaval. Now IMF is the only option, perhaps, that could be a blessing in disguise because this time they are pressing to tax the Agricultural.

    As a nation instead of cutting our own feet, we could have move forward by completing the Gawadar Port, linking China via road to it and starting commercial operations. All this after giving Baluchistan due share from the revenue generated not the current population based formula. Another avenue was improving relations with India and expediting gas pipeline from Iran / Qatar. Plus inviting (more than willing) Indian auto makers to invest. And most importantly deal with our power issue and settle once and for all how we want to go about it.

    Haven’t we made some very stupid choices?
