    Why should the people of Karachi have to suffer because of Punjabi Police Force and Paramilitary Force(s) incompetence? The ban of double swari show(s) the morale and commitment of our law enforcement agencies – I apologize, “shows the incompetence and morale of there law enforcement agencies unless this is a treat to
    Dagays and Tullays….!!!!

    @Bukhari: So did you visit your local Sector Incharge’s office? Most probably your mobile would be in his drawer.

    @ barrister on January 11th.
    Sir, would it be incorrect to assume that the mere fact that incompetent Punjabi Police Force is employed in Karachi is a reflection on the incompetence of Karachi Adminstartion which I am sure will be free of these awful Punjabis.

    Sir, you do make me laugh a lot for which I am so grateful to you. Laugh doesn’t come so easy in such gloomy days. However, please don’t make me laugh so much that my tummy starts to ache.

    You are really a cute little friend whose friendship I will always value.

    This double sawaree joke has become a cultural part of our lives now, especially for Karachites, so there is nothing new about it. The sole purpose of this ridiculous law is to make it official that “Halat Kharab Hain”, and “Chai Pani” is one of the fringe benefits that our Pendu Police n Rangers manage to make out of this. Transporters are the other big beneficiary of this public nuisance; just imagine the impact of thousands of new passenger influx to local transport system. The whole situation favors each other, at the end, it all boils down to one thing, i.e., “Money”…….Looking at the stakes and the stake holders, its obvious that every thing happens for a reason… my dear fellow readers…….chill out and go on with the life of misery n pretend to be happy n content.

    Btw what about “Cute Little Friend"…what’s going on here….!

    Somebody ask me what happen if 9/11 happened in Karachi ?

    I replied

    Gov would put a BAN on PILLION RIDE.

    The point everyone miss here is who is benefited from this BAN ?

    Transporters !!!

    Have you all noticed suddenly the transporters stoped crying over Diesel price ?

    This Ban on Pillion ride triples the business of Transporters.

    I guess Karachi police is not controlled by Karachi City’s government or Karachi’s administration.

    Kabirdas Bhai, I will try not to make you laugh a lot next time and will try to travel on the less traveled road as you mentioned (rightly).

    There’s no harm in having an academic discussion on “discrimination” against Mohajirs. I think we have a right to raise our voice.
    You once asked as to why people of Punjab are hated around Pakistan. One of the dimensions is because of a great majority of them (Punjabis) serve in security forces (apart from Armed Forces because of there Martial credentials) which is one of the biggest discrimination to the rest of Pakistanis. So when ever security forces are used against Pakistanis; people see a “Paindoo” killing them in a uniform instead of a Sindhi, Mohajir, Baloch or even Pashtun.

    Karachi(s) case is much worse where the local representation in Karachi Police or even Sindh Police is “criminally minimal” thanks to the institutional racism by federation and a great majority of the “tullas” happens to be from Punjab (not even local residents) and rest from Interior Sindh. When a policeman in Karachi is shot dead; we hear he’s buried in Gujrat, Jhelum, Multan and Lahore and not in Nazimabad, Gulshan, DHA or Landi. And it’s visible; in fact Anwar Maqsood in 50/50 made it a point to highlight the lack of merit and discrimination against Mohairs in Police Please refer to “Mustansar Hussain Tarar Joke in 50/50 .

    Karachi(s) police work under Sindh Government and all attempts get them under CDGK failed. Interestingly, in one of my earlier posts I mentioned with names the Police High Ups serving in various capacities and they are all NON-KARACHI RESIDENTS except couple of DIGs – IG, Jails the only Mohajir, Yameen Khan died recently. So when I see police; I see alien people who are nor culturally close to me and simply do not feel about Karachi the way we Karachiates do about our city . And obviously how could we forget the genocide of Mohajirs in 90(s) especially by Sindh Police & Rangers (all Punjabis) because of which a whole generation of “angry youth” was born. It will prorably take decades to end this feeling. In Quetta the feelings are equally strong against Punjabis.

    You see there’s alienation within Karachi and we see police and the paramilitary forces as not ours at all.

    Anyhow MQM came up with a beautify drafted 18th amendment yesterday for complete provincial autonomy. A strong federation in Pakistan which only increase hate against Punjab and this is the only way to really make this unfortunate nation, strong
