Ban on pillion riding to end

Enjoy Pillion Riding

Enjoy Pillion Riding

Local television channels are broadcasting news that ban on pillion riding has been removed. The home minister is stating that it was imposed to control target killing and removed to facilitate common people as they were suffering due to this ban.

I am curious to know that whether this ban is removed only for election and will reinforce after few days? Whether they successfully controlled target killing and so there is no need for this ban?

“Democratic terror” in Karachi over Shoe incident reporting

PPP jiyalas (jiyala seems a tribute, lets change it to ghundaz or something similar) have decided to show their democratic muscle by resorting to threats and terrorizing GEO/ARY media groups. Apparently jilayaz “continued pouring in at the scene since noon today, sustained the siege of the offices and pelted them with stones. The PPP operatives showed shoes to the Geo News workers and uttered abusive words and set on fire the copies of Daily Jang. The party workers went on wall chalking spree under police cover writing bad meaning sentences and graffiti against Geo and Jang; however, police and administration kept standing as silent spectators.” more . .   (and more here)

One can see why i have often said all current major political parties in PAK are different shades of the same rotten faces. When it was possible all have used terror to silence anyone who has opposed their views. We saw it on May 12 in previous setup and now the PPP has decided to silence its critics. For ordinary man, democracy in PAK hasnt been anything better than a self decieving dream. While the country is under water, PPP gov instead of some work has decided to scare few media groups for exposing it While international press is questioning Zardari’s own personality, local media has simply reported some ugly truths but looks like PPP is still living in 90s or probably like Raja said 70s. Shall we learn anything from history?

Its coming again . . .

Or is it? This pic taken 20 min back shows black coulds over Gulshan side.

Geo blocked over news of shoe hurling at Zardari

Update [9th Aug 1:54 PM] : ARY & SAMAA also blocked.

It is being reported by many sources all over Karachi that Geo channel is facing the wrath of PP gov. and its being blocked over news of shoe hurling at Zardari by a British PAK Mr. Shamim Khan. Looks like PP still lives in 70s when the nation was fooled on 71 disaster. Geo reports that : ” Some of PPP’s leaders and government officials have issued threats and warnings to cable operators across country against continuation of Geo News transmission, pressurizing them to shut Geo News transmission but most cable operators refused to do so, sources said.”
