Six Story Residential Building Collapsed

A six story residential building has collapsed in the Meetha Dar area of Karachi. The surrounding lanes around the site of the building collapse are too narrow to allow any earth moving equipment to reach for rescue work. Two dead bodies have been retrieved from the site while Reports suggest more then 45 people may have still been trapped in the rubble. The building was constructed only about a year and a half ago.

People from the area, fire brigade and Edhi emergency staff members are trying to rescue people who may still be alive underneath the rubble.

    Phatichar qoum, they find condoms too expensive to buy, conterceptives too complicated to understand, yet easily pay the buthers every yaer for a ceserian opration.

    Ps: I c,t figure that out, when u can build a 6 story building, why can’t u move machinery inside for rescue….kiya banatay waqat saman mazdoor sar pe rakh ke le gai thay, ya sara makan screw drivers n hammers say bana…??

    Sali memon qoum, 10 foot ki gali say bari gali chorna is ke iman ke khilaaf hai….last week I had to move inside boultn market in my phatphati…..there was two way trafic going on a road not enough to cater a one way single file traffic……horrible experience…had to pay 50 to a guy to convince him to give place for me to park me phatphati..exploiters

    Sure sir, if the residents wud have been a good muslaman, n offered prayers 5 times a day, the sand in the foundations wud have miraclay tranformed into re-inforced steele, am I right…?

    When do this nation will learn, dat ethics, integrity, law has nothing to do with musalmani, infact wtching the muslims n true muslims, they are a total oposite to these…..

    Jis PIA ke jahaz ke 200 musafir dua-e-safar parhtay hain wo 3 ghanaty late urta hai….aur yahud-o-hanood ke airport pe rooz 100-200 flights without delay utarti hain…..looks like yahodiz offer there namaz or is there something else in them

    @fasee sab…sir aap toh maa khaan jajbati ho re ho….I believe what sir Calyps meant was to start believing in the end like good muslims….so whatever time you waste in meetha dar doing good or bad…will not save you….bachaay ga toh koi bhi nahein….

    oyae Fasiq, I am not in a position to write coherently right now…but, yes every problem in Pakistan is due to its explosive population.
    Let me get sober and perhaps I could build a convincing arguement.
    For now let me enjoy ‘the songs that my mother taught me played by London symphony.’

    @fasee .. kullu nafsin zaikaul maut – every soul shall taste death .. har shai ko maut ka maza chakna hai .. its not about death .. its about doing good deeds because no matter what u do .. death will come to you and u will have to be accountable to what you do in front of Allah so its better you do good deeds and build. A builder should build quality foundation rather then doing illegal milavat!

    And ethics, integrity, law is all part of religion Islam and that is why Islam is soo different then rest of the religions .. its give us a complete code of conduct .. yehe tu hai parho samjho and us per amal karo .. what i dont understand is

    1. aik tu quran shareef parhtai ho .. but amal nahe kartai .. amal ka naam aata hai tu 20 firqe!

    2. we as a nation can be united under the banner of cricket but not under the banner of quran shareef

    3. we have lost our morals in such as way that bad things are not considered bad anymore in society .. biggest example use of abusive language ya phir kehna “yaar jugaar mai concert attend karlia”

    I remember watching ARY tv on which a guy from rainbow centre received a letter from taliban that they will destroy the center if they dont stop this business and he was like yaar yeh taliban tu hamai stone age lai jai ge! the question is we know wat sort of things are sold thier but we buy them as well ..demand hai na? moral kharab hai na? religious ask us not to do such things? phir bhe nahe mantai!

    we need to change our society .. sawal yeh nahe kai rishwat police walai kiun laitai hai .. sawal yeh hai kai hum rishwat daitai kiun hai .. and the day we realize this .. we will be a better society!

    @ wasiq

    Sir jee ik umer guzri hai yeh sab dekhtay huway

    @ calyps

    Sir first of all that’s for translating the most used cliche into the 3 languages I often use n understand, french me bi translate ker detay, for dat I find it pretty tough to understand or due to lack of time.

    Brother, my only objection was, not to mingle islam with basic sense of integrity…muslman tu hum na tha na kabhi zindagi bhar bun saktay hain, na hamaray aba-o-ajdad ban sakay…..period.

    Haan albata zum-e-muslamani buhat raha sab logon ko…sadly I haven’t met or saw any muslaman in my life, n I have traavled a lot….so let’s put that islam n muslamni crap on the side and start with the basics, 1kg shud mean 1000 grams not 850. Once in an article a guy said show me a perfect scale in pakistan and I will resign…can u make him resign sir…??

    Islam in my opinion is a tool abused by ulea, confused by the phatichar an jahil awam, and fantasized by intelectual midgets…islam ko samjha koi bi nahee ( including myslef) all we do is sign bhajun on mizars n belive this is islam, or give zalat from our intrest based incomes.

    Even the hisoty of islam…so much abused by glorifying the horendous acts of despot rulers in name of religon…..don’t give me that rhethoric jis ko sun sun ke me bara huwa…and jis ko me ne dustbin me phanik diya…don’t want to revisit or relive that crap anymore

  12. calyps on August 2nd, 2009 @ 4:04 pm

    Sorry fasee bhai for using three different languages .. basically this method prevents any translation tool to translate the complete paragraph thus forcing the reader to read and understand with care and time :) and that is what Islam teaches us “gain knowledge so you can choose the right things” and quran says “We have made quran easy to read and understand” so when we start reading Quran shareef, we come across with another ayat

    “And (as for) those who believe and do good We do not impose on any soul a duty except to the extent of its ability– they are the dwellers of the garden; in it they shall abide.”

    and another

    “Truly, God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves”

    and here is a story of the people of jahiliat explained in Surah Bukarah .. Once our last Prophet p.b.u.h was addressing group of “idol worshippers” “people trying to influence them to gain the right knowledge and understand what is right and what is wrong thus ultimately join Islam .. they replied .. “Are you saying our parents were wrong? They have worshipped these Gods .. so we will continue worshipping them” (something like this – i am not a scholar)

    So, first thing .. I would suggest you is trying to link all three quranic verses and fit them in your day to day life .. and you will understand how Islam can help us .. 2ndly) stop looking for a real religious person .. stop looking for person who can make that guy resign .. stop looking at ur ancestors .. and instead BE A GOOD MUSLIM YOURSELF AND THE WORLD WILL CHANGE AROUND YOU!

    maire ammi daant rahe hai muche i am always on intrnet .. i better go .. take care

    Allah hafiz

    Sir Jee, just my two points on Islam.I feel Islam is not a religion, its a way of Life called in the quran as DEEN.Had it been a religion u would have found all sorts of rituals like in other religions.The perfect CODE OF CONDUCT to build a society where u can have peace,harmony,narioushment,security,humblness.Praying five times a day would not bring that no matter how much u try even if u include the extra four.However , if u establish the SALAAT ( nizaam-e-rububiat ) then according to GOD’s laws of mukafat you you see its effects.The cause and effects are called GOD’s laws of Mukafat,e.g if u put your fingure in the fire it would burn this is GOD’s law, you cannot change it.Similarly if u bribe some one, again according to his law of Mukafat , someone would get deprived , other person would get undue favor and subsequently the society as a whole would be effected.So stopping bribery is establishing SALAAT ( Laws of rububiat ).

    @ calypse

    Okay boss, agree with you, as I already follow these, be a good human, folow relion to my best knowledge, avoid shirk n bidat that I see all around me people doind and thinking they will go to heaven.

    N they will get the shock of there life when they will find the central airconditioning in heaven not working at all..:)

    What people usualy mean from being good msuilm is, pray 5 times, read quran n ahadees, or best, be hafiz-e-quraan.

    Story ends here, never they point out bout ethics, integrity, humantiy.

    I’ll show u 3 feet beard wearing, with a daag on there forehead, taking rishwat in income tax dept, yet offering bajaamat namaz reguarly.

  15. calyps on August 2nd, 2009 @ 8:04 pm

    @fasee sahab Allah tells in quran .. sab apna apna gunnah lai kar jai gai .. u are not responsible for him .. he is not responsible for you ..

    and he also says in Quran that if u see anything doing something wrong yet he is achieving great heights in the worldly life, it does not mean that we have forgiven him and he is doing well.. but instead it means that we are letting him indulge with the wordly desire more and more so he dont even remember Allah .. so when we do .. we catch him completely

    so who cares what the world is doing .. tum acha raho .. dunya will be good around you ..

    and the whole paragraph can be summarized as “dont worry about rights .. think about obeying your obligations” and Allah will make things easy for u :) tum chal kar jao gai Allah talah bhaag kar aeegai aap kai paas :)

  16. eiksoch on August 3rd, 2009 @ 7:19 am


    Brother, even if u do good still the world around u would not be good.Take for e.g, if u r a prefect human being will the robers care not to steal your mobile phone.The answer is NO.Secondly, u cannot expect every person to change on its own, u have to lay down the foundation , bring the right laws, make them practice by individuals , let them see the results and then the change would come.How to do this ? I give u one e.g.The Friday prayer is the most effective way, because u have people gathering at one place, now instead of the maulana giving all the ways and means of getting into heaven, if he focus on how we could improve the living standard in our mohalla would be an ideal scenario.GOD has ask us to make Mosque not only to pray but for mutual consultation to solve our problems.A very practical solution.
    God has asked us in the quran to establish the deen, establish salaat ( Nizaam-e-rububiat), when u establish GOD’s system u would see the fruits promsed by him in Surah Rehman.
    Will continue later.

    @ eiksoch n calyps

    Well, moulvis won’t tell ya bout ethics or thos world, he wud keep u mesmerised by the 72 sex slaves u wud get in the afterworld.

    And why wounlt he, bcoz more than half masajid r built on illegaly acquired or ilegaly constructed structures…so looking at those robers for our ethics lessons is one sogn of this societyz moral decay.

    As for calyps…sorry buddy, but your thinking is idealy required from any incompetent ruler..they wud love it….apna kaam kiye jaoo, sila na mangoo….same as if I keep paying income tax and don’t ask what the hell this govt is doing with my khoon paseenay ki kamai….I wud be a fool to do that, wudnt I be bro…??

    Khuda apna jaiz haq mangnay say kabi mana nai kerta…..burai ko na rokna wala zalim say bara zalim hota hai.

    Islam teqchs us to do amal, and these mauvies of ours have marooned us into a nation of uselessn spineless slaves, kaam kiya jaoo, haq na mangoo, akhirat me allah say manag lena….lol….ab to hansi bi nai ati mujhay is mentality per….I wish I can convice my employees in folowing this line n don’t ask for salary….:):)

    fasee bhai aap kiun bhool jatai hai kai Allah aap ko dhaikh raha hai and will reward you inshAllah if u do good and try not to do bad things!

    Its just not about income tax and not getting anything back out of it .. why you going down the route of monetary values .. why do you and rest of us the same thing that the reason i do wrong thing is because he does wrong things .. qayamat mai no one will remember anyone .. u will be responsible for your acts!

    Why not be a good person and do just .. and follow Islamic principles or atleast try to and people around you will get some motivation from you .. they will inshAllah join you and so society will be clean and Pak inshAllah..

    tum try to karo Allah ka naam lai kar and bharosa karkai Allah ki zaat per .. phir dhaikho ..

    and also, ignore Maulvies … they will come to help u on the day of judgement .. or will they?

    @ calyps.

    Sir je let me tell u a instresting story….once in a milaad of an important relative of ours, one big shot ( and fat ) moulvi was telling, dat even in jannat all people wud have to ask the maulvi of jannat area, how and what to talk with god before we talk with god, see how much important the gali ka maulvi is.

    ( Needless to mention I almost droped my blackbery when he said that, I lost the metal slug due to that stupid coments, as I got out of focus)…during melads, metal slug n snooker are my saviours during that torture of the soul n brain.

    As for apna kaam kiye jao….well allah sirf insaan ka apnay aap ke liye zor nai deta, do u think if u offer 5 times a day while there r 4 casino or nite clubs around u, will u go in jannat n not being asked that what u did to stop that burai in the society.

    Rememebr brother, burai ko na rokna wala hi nahee, burai ko chup ker ke seeh janay wala bhi mujrim hota hai aur allah ke agay jawabdeh hoga, ke tum ne zulam bardasht kiyo kiya.

    As for monetory values, my apoligies, beings a munshi accountant, I can’t avoid seeing everything as bundles of money, just like a programer see binary code in eveything n everyone

    change tu lao pehlai apne ander sai! aap tu yehe example daite rehtai ho – “I’ll show u 3 feet beard wearing, with a daag on there forehead, taking rishwat in income tax dept, yet offering bajaamat namaz reguarly.!
