Traffic Update

There is huge traffic jam after Teen Hatti starting towards Liaquatabad till Karimabad entry point. Traffic is completely stuck and at a standstill near Liaquatabad, Laloo Khait. Kindly avoid that route. Some snaps take few min back:

Some people decided to take the wrong way but alas, way ahead there will surely get stuck on this way route too. May be they will switch back :)

And some disappointed and decided to take a Uturn

Amid Chaos and Fear – Karachi is alive

Update: PSO pump between Baloch Colony Bridge and Kavish Crown is open right now for both petrol and CNG. Pics taken an hour back show chaos, slight noak-jhonk and an effort by rangers & locals to keep things under some discipline at PSO near Baloch bridge. Note : The station usually accepts credit-card but not today so keep some cash.


MQM MPA Raza Haider gunned down – Traffic bottleneck

As the news of MQM MPA Mr. Raza Haider being gunned down spread, traffic in Karachi witnessed a “tense pattern” and bottlenecks were formed at main routes everywhere. Picture of SF traffic taken 2 hours back by a friend.


Dangerous Ride

I followed this car over a mile and continuously honked and flashed my lights at him but the irresponsible parent continued to drive while the kids hung dangerously out of the car’s window, this was an accident waiting to happen thankfully this day was in favor with them but another day may not be that lucky.

I hope people understand how important it is to make their kids follow safety rules while traveling in a car , which means the kids have to be seated on the passenger seat of the car with the seat-belt on and keep their head and arms inside the vehicle at all time during the travel.

Protest Rally & Demonstration

It is to inform you that the leadership of Shiya Ullema Council, Jafferia Alliance and ISO have announced that they will take out a protest rally today at 1600 hrs from Karachi Press Club to Chief Minister House to protest against the bomb blasts during Ashoora and Chehlum at Karachi.

Disruption of traffic is expected on Dr. Zia Uddin Ahmed Road, Club Road and near PIDC house between 1600 to 1800 hrs. Everyone are advised to avoid the above mentioned areas during the stated timing.

Tariq Road – Once at the fore, but not anymore?

What is the ultimate Karachi shopping experience? Some say Park Towers…. No. The Forum?  Not really. Those places are too small to be worthy of being named the “Ultimate”. Once upon a time however, it used to be the Saddar area. Most especially, the Elphinstone Street (current Zaib-un-Nissa street) where you would find most upmarket and good shopping outlets in Karachi. But that was also the days of yore. For our current day and the recent past, the reigning position has consistently been occupied by the Tariq Road. This has most definitely been a go-to place for all sorts of families and all sorts of people to buy all sorts of things apparel related. For easily about two decades Tariq road has occupied the top spot on the Karachi shopping scene. And very rightly so. It is a bazaar-cum-market-cum-mall where you can find the best deals, the best bargains, the most variety and the most seasoned material. Could you say its Karachi’s Oxford Street or İstiklal Avenue? ummmm……
