    Really an unfortunate incident.My heart bleeds for the victims. But kindly don’t destroy your own city. Outrage and anger is understandable but don’t burn and wreck your own city.

    A very sad reality.
    When people go about and start burning things it surly does cause damage to their own city, but this is an attempt to outlet the anger from within. The feelings inside don’t tend to stay in the closet, instead the are out-lashed at society itself knowing that this is not the criminal nor the cause of our anger. What should one do when life has been stolen and theres no one with an answer?

    The media loves it,and they don’t make the situation any better.

    These people are not Pakistanis and they are not ripping THEIR OWN city apart. They are outsiders 100%.

    @ Fasee

    Underwent a very serious and risky surgery for my Cervical Stenosis in America on 22 Oct. Came back alive to this black hole on 07 Dec. Still recouperating.

    In your bad mood you have failed to appreciate the relevace of Ghalib’s misra quoted by me to the situation of Karachi. What could be the better way to mourn a sad event than dil ko roana and jigar ko peetna.

    Take care

    Why you people are falling and trapped in the hands of those who wanted to create differences aganst us.

    See and read how INDIA shias & sunnis are living each other, see how shia & sunni ulema.. both attend conferences, sit.. and have dinner each other at Darul-Aloom Deoband conferences and everyother place.

    Why we have his harted here in Pakistan.

    Loss is loss, those who lost lives or money. You can see that even 10 sunnis who were in jaloos were the victim of sucide and you can also see that 100’s of shias & bohri shias shop were burnt..

    I ask you that do you think some sunni do the sucide.. NO

    And in the same manner do you think that the shia burnt the shop — NO

    Be vigiliant.., there are 100 of things which you cannot easily pass away.

    1) Chemical . Phasphoros was used.. See the Dawn news — Do you think that plp in jaloos take this phasporos from home.. and came into procession. as they know that some sucide bombing will be in place.. Think youself

    2) The first shops were burnt of Pathans.. at Light house, which open startight fire to the back side of the pro mqm place…

    3) CDGK has already give notice from 4 months.. to get this place.. empty.. Listen from your own the business community that they have ordered and they were looking for some reasons to get them out.

    There are many reasons, you cannot start abusing each other so easily. We are living with 100 of years. We cannot kill all shia and neither they cannot kill all of us.. SUNNIS.

    Dont start spreading harted, because it will only spread harted…

    Karachi BLAST — BOMBING & LOOTING

    For flmaing the tika boti… at eid.. it took 1 hour to flame the wood/ angheteee/ coal, but how come it is possible to flame all the building in minutes. Definitly it was pre-planned.

    Everyone is doing politics on the blood & money of innocent plp.

    Political parties are highly involved.

    Why a re-known minister belongs to a re-known political party (who own 150 shops at bolton market) sold all of his shop just a month before..

    Has he been alarmed, just a month back, however these shops were 40 years old.

    Politics is highly involved.

    Just watch a video after the blast..

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3NragJRV5I

    Those who lost lives, cannot be recovered, this lost cannot be filled, its really tragic for their family for whole life, but those whose shops has been burnt, must be recovered. and Govt should help them all.

    These businessman were getting threatened from last 2 years to shift the shop. They don’t know that in this manner it will be done.

    Allah bless us all.

    Excellent observation published at London Post & an excellent video proof by Samaa TV.

    You cannot ignore these facts easily.
