After the gruesome incident of terrorist attack on two (02) buses at Banaras Chowk which resulted in the death of ten (10) innocent persons and injuries to over twenty (20) persons, MQM announced Yum-E-Sog (mourning) late last night.
In addition to this, Karachi Traders Association (KTA) and Karachi Road Transport Association (KRTA) have also decided to keep the markets closed and public transport off the roads. Since morning transport has been scanty and markets and petrol pumps are closed.
Few incidents of firing have been reported in Golimar and Baldia resulting in deaths / injuries. Since morning July 08 youngsters have been observed stopping vehicular movement in Gulshan, Bahadurabad, Clifton, DHA Korangi Road, PECHS, Shaheed Millat Road, Garden F.B. Area, Azizabad, Nazimabad and North Nazimabad, therefore, play safe by restricting movements.2 comments
Today the Ulema Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamat, previously known as Sipahe Sahaba Pakistan and Jamat Ud Dawa, will take out a rally from Numaish Chowrangi, M.A. Jinnah Road up to Karachi Press club at 1500 hrs. Keeping in view yesterday’s targeted killings of the sector in-charge of Sipahe Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) and an activist of Sunni Tahreek (ST) in North Nazimabad and Ranchor Lines, the above mentioned rally has a high potential to cause traffic disruption and violence.9 comments
Thanks MQM for arranging such an event for people of Karachi. This event held at Annu bhai park nazimabad with good security measures by MQM workers.
As you are already aware that Eide Milad un Nabi is being celebrated throughout the Country. Reportedly two (02) processions will be taken out in Karachi tomorrow February 16th being 12 Rabi ul Awal. The details of the same are appended below:
First procession will start From Memon Masjid, Kharadar/ Methadar and end at Nishtar Park. The second procession will start from Golimar (Rizvia Socity), through Lasbela, Teen hatti, Liaqtabad 10 #, Nazimabad # 2, Nazimabad # 7, Paposh Nagar and it will end at Golimar (Rizvia Socity).
Beside the above main procession, police has identified a number of smaller processions such as, 11 in New Karachi town, 09 in Nazimabad town, 07 in North Nazimabad town, 07 in Korangi town, 05 in Malir town, 03 in Shah Faisal town, 02 in Clifton town, 01 in Saddar Town and 01 in Gulshan Iqbal town. Traditionally all these small processions will converge on main procession at Nishtar Park, M A Jinnah Road.
Due to expected security concerns ,M.A. Jinnah Road will be closed a night before the actual timing (i.e. on Tuesday night to Wednesday evening). Shahra-e- Faisal may also witness traffic congestion due to movement of small processions. Incidentally Home Department, Sindh has imposed ban on pillion riding for two days with effect from today.
Please exercise due caution/care and plan your movements accordingly.15 comments

whatever it is!
North Nazimabad has two new offerings for Karachites. First is Dilpasand which has opened near board office. This one has a decent open-air seating space where you can enjoy faluda, ice cream, kulfis and ras mailai. No need to review this place because everyone knows how good is its faluda which has every good thing on earth in it and icecream of which doesn’t melt till last bite.
Second is UK based halal food chain Chicken Cottage which will open its doors on 14th Sept so this one’s review is due but I aint promising :p
Enjoy your iftaris :D2 comments
Okay so an area in North Nazimabad had no electricity for more than 12 hours yesterday. And keeping in view the reputation of KESC, you can expect what they have done with the people who called 118. This time hadh hogayi, I mean they even denied that the people have lodged complaints. Calls should be recorded on these call centers like 1217 so these operators and KESC itself are more responsible about their claims but why would they do it? It would add liability on KESC from all fronts. Moreover, for more than eight hours, these people couldn’t even trace what problem it was. Jiye Kesc! You can’t live with or without them.
I guess KMB should have a new category, why kesc sucks!1 comment

And when a channel will report the unfortunate incident our official will have the typical . . . o daikhain jee wazeer ala saheb ne es waqiey ki inquiry ke liye aik kameytee . . . and so the story will die its own death because . . . unless a miracle, they wont become Bakhtwar, Aseefa, Fatima Bhutto and the CLASS. . . so who cares.. .
