    new year celebrations? getting drunk at times I think we are becoming ‘wanabes’ and jokers and are in serious identity crisis ;
    I know comments like these are odd here and are a bit hard to adjust but how many of us thought of remembering our dead relatives? our dead brothers and sisters ? and remembering our respected gods ( Allah , Bhagwan etc.. )
    our society is a confused society every day ..
    and yes I am not religious nor extremest..
    shukria,
    Ali Chishti

    My head was nicely tucked in between two pillows.

  11. KABAB MEIN HADI (unregistered) on January 3rd, 2006 @ 7:58 pm

    Here goes Mr Faisal again ” our very own secular voice “. Always asking others not to be moral authority.

    But doing the same on the pretext of freedom. STINKING HYPOCRISY…!!!


  12. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on January 4th, 2006 @ 12:10 am

    hahhah *kabab me haddi*
    @zahra,i dont drink,i dont smoke either


  13. faisal (unregistered) on January 4th, 2006 @ 1:15 am

    KABAB,

    I HARDLY THINK THAT IT IS I WHO IS CLAIMING TO BE THE MORAL AUTHORITY WHEN IT WAS THE WRITER OF THE OTHER POST WHO USED WORDS LIKE:

    getting drunk at times I think we are becoming ‘wanabes’ and jokers and are in serious identity crisis ;

    WHO IS BEING A HYPOCRITE NOW? WHO IS JUDGING WHOM? WHO IS BASICALLY STOOPING DOWN TO NAME CALLING? WHO IS PUSHING THEIR OWN VIEWS ON OTHERS?

    ALL I WAS SAYING IS THAT LETS JUST AGREE TO LIVE AND LET LIVE. BOTTOM LINE IS THAT IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO THAT AGE OLD ADAGE….”THOSE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULD NOT THROW STONES”.

    BY THE WAY, THE BUBBLES IN THAT GLASS OF CRISTAL REALLY FELT GOOD AS THEY CARRESSED THEIR WAY DOWN MY THROAT


  14. KABAB MEIN HADI (unregistered) on January 4th, 2006 @ 1:59 am

    Comments full of CAPITAL LETTERS tell a lot about a person.Shows Mr Faisal got my message and understands it.

    BULLS EYE…!


  15. faisal (unregistered) on January 4th, 2006 @ 3:21 am

    BULLS EYE, MY A*S, KABAB.
    JUST BECAUSE MY CAPS LOCK KEY WAS
    ON MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

    SO GO AHEAD….CONTINUE WITH YOUR PSEUDO
    PSYCHO-ANALYSIS ALL YOU WANT.

    MY SPIRITUAL VIEWS ARE PURELY A PERSONAL
    MATTER BETWEEN ME AND MY CREATOR AND DO NOT
    NEED POSTULATING TO. OTHER THAN THAT, THIS IS
    MY LAST COMMENT ON THIS TOPIC AS I REFUSE TO CONTINUE INDULGING YOU IN YOUR TIT FOR TAT GAME


  16. zubair (unregistered) on January 4th, 2006 @ 10:05 am

    zahra: i dont drink, i dont smoke. teeehee!

    faisal: chillax, mate!

    Aey naye saal bata tujh mein nayapan kia hai?
    Her taraf khulq ne kioun shore macha rakha hai?
    Roshni din ki wohi, taron bhari raat wohi
    Aaj hum ko nazar aati hai har ek baat wohi
    Aasmaan badla hai afsos na badli hai zameen
    Ek hindsay ka badalna koi jiddat to nahi
    Aglay barson ki tarah hon gay qareenay teray
    Kisay maaloom nahi bara maheenay teray
    January farvary or march mein paray sardee
    Or april mayee june mein hogi garmee
    Tera mann dehr mein kuch khoye ga kuch paye ga
    Apni meeyaad basar ker ke chala jaye ga
    Tu naya hai to dikha subh nayi shaam nayi
    Werna in aankhon ne dekhay hain naye saal kayi
    Be-sabab detay hain kioun log mubarak badein?
    Ghaliban bhool gaye waqt ki karrwi yaadein
    Teri aamad se ghatee umr jahan se sab ki
    Faiz ne likhi hai ye nazm niralay dhab ki

    Happy New Year. Well Started with dinner with parents than Par-tayyyyy hehe. Hukka/sheesha party at a friends house… It was great. Definitly better than last new years which I spent in Islamabad away from home. Its good to be with friends and family! Although I miss Pakistan at times, home is where family and friends are. HAPPY 2006 to all!

    **Drinking isn’t a bad thing as long as your drinking doesnt harm anyone else… CHEERS! or as i would like to say…. CHUG IT!!!!


  19. adam (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 12:21 am

    zahra’s question was interesting, i would love to know how many people actually drink in pakistan!

    ok drinking– as long as you dont harm others- sounds great! but what if your drinking harms YOU?? i mean jeezz just think about all the thousands of brain cells that you kill with every gulp,

    im not muslim and not from pakistan, but i DO NOT drink. why? for health reasons only. (and dont tell me red wine is good for the heart!! lol. we’re talking hard core vodka, maritnis, beers, champagne, neat or on the rocks! its bad for you)

    and the “alcohol free” thing, by the way, is a growing movement in the west. very interesting. i think its amazing that your religion prohibits alcohol, after all the ugly things one gets to see in the west…from liver diseases to the poor people who join AA (alcoholics anonymous)…alcohol being prohibited religiously sounds grrreat!

    to your health– i raise a glass of water! cheers guys :)


  20. KABAB mein HADI (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 1:58 am

    Adam alchohol is not sold openly in Pakistan. Its avaible in few five star hotels or made locally undercover. Small percentage of people drink it in Pakistan. Though the number is increasing.

    Yes you are right Islam does ban alchohol which is absolutely cool. Happy to see an outsider can still appreciate our religion based on reality in times when ISLAM bashing is vouge.


  21. misha (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 2:12 am

    Alcohol is available fairly widely in Karachi at least, Kabab sahab. It is supposed to be sold only to foriegners who are not underage but nowadays pretty much anyone with enough to pay off ever-watchful eyes of the local policewallahs can step on down to a licenced wine shop and purchase a good deal of alcohol. In fact, just yesterday, I happened to see some of the local law enforcement officers helping themselves to the merchandise of the wine shop they are supposed to be monitoring.


  22. adam (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 3:00 am

    yes mr. kabab (!)islam bashing is very fashionable these days, thats very unfortunate. from what ive studied about islam is such a beautiful thing, bashing it is like stomping on a beautiful flower.

    about the alcohol, sure its sold to foreigners but the underhand dealings, shady practices and the hypocrisy is so sad.

    i hope we can all see more clearly to strive for better and more authentically pure societies. and you aint gonna see very clearly after a couple of drinks now then are you!!?


  23. Neelam (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 5:40 am

    Apart from whats right and wrong, what religion says and what science says… EVERYONE has their own Opinions and makes there own choices. NOW MR. Extremeist, drinking doesnt necessarily means DRINKING till u loose ur liver or until you get drunk! Almost everything in this world is bad for you, from this smog filled air! Obviously DRINKING is bad for you no arguments there but for a FACT You may check webmd.com to verify that ALOCHOL is actually good for you if you drink moderately!

    Plus everyone makes there own decisions… if one wants to drink…CHUG ON!


  24. faisal (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 12:58 pm

    Thank you, Neelam.
    It’s a personal choice.
    Thank goodness we don’t live
    in an orwellian society ….
    And as ticked off as I am at myself
    for allowing myself to be tempted
    to add another comment on this topic,
    let me just add that 1) I was not
    defending drinking but rather personal
    choice and 2)I drink but the occasional
    drink every now and then….and that too
    usually something with an umbrella in it
    (a mai tai, pina colada or long island iced
    tea, anyone?) or a glass of champagne to
    usher in the new year.


  25. Neelam (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 9:45 pm

    Oh u are welcome… Anytime!


  26. PUNJABI4LIFE (unregistered) on January 5th, 2006 @ 11:18 pm

    What do you mean wannabes? I think that Pakistanis who don’t drink are wannabes. Wannabe arabs. Us Punjabis have been getting drunk for thousands of years. We even brew our own moonshine in the bushes. Punjabis know how to party. Maybe you little Karachi bhaiya b*tches don’t like to drink anything except cow urine but we know where it’s at.


  27. noman (unregistered) on January 6th, 2006 @ 7:12 am

    Wow Guys you are really following the Islam. And please stop with this BS about Webmd stuff. So you believe more in Webmd then your own Prophet(P.B.U.H).

    Medical treatment is something that is prescribed in shareeíah, but it must be by using things that have been prescribed by Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted, and by His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), because this is what may contain the cure. As for that which Allaah has forbidden, there is no healing in it. One of the things which indicate that it is forbidden to treat disease with haraam things in general and with alcohol in particular, is the muíallaq report narrated by al-Bukhaari in his Saheeh from Ibn Masíood (may Allaah be pleased with him), which says, ìAllaah did not put your healing in that which He has forbidden to you.î Al-Tabaraani said that it was mawsool and gave an isnaad the men of which are the men of al-saheeh. It was also narrated by Ahmad and by Ibn Hibbaan in his Saheeh, and by al-Bazaar, Abu Yaíla and al-Tabaraani; the men of Abu Yaílaa are thiqaat. It was narrated from Umm Salamah (may Allaah be pleased with her).


  28. Ilovemyscotch (unregistered) on January 6th, 2006 @ 10:01 am

    HaHaHa..Islamic medical advice. Give me a break. BTW i thought the whole point of refraining from alcohol was to avoid intoxication, however, if a minute quantity of alcohol is used in a medical treatment and doesnt have any intoxicating or ill effects then why should it be prohibited. Some times its better to use common sense then following and preaching things blindly.


  29. zubair (unregistered) on January 6th, 2006 @ 4:16 pm

    … huh?

    fags…


  30. PUNJABI4LIFE (unregistered) on January 6th, 2006 @ 11:45 pm

    NOMAN YOU ARE A GEEK


  31. Neelam (unregistered) on January 7th, 2006 @ 2:21 pm

    Okay lets leave religion out of this!


  32. wasiq (unregistered) on January 8th, 2006 @ 1:38 am

    girls girls girls! don’t be so upset if you missed it this new year iam sure there is plenty more for the next new year from where it came……..kullo aam wa untum ba khair !!!!


  33. Echoes (unregistered) on January 10th, 2006 @ 2:18 am

    @Punjabi4Life

    Your post left me completely speechless. I think what you said about Karachi says a LOT about your character, my friend. And believe me, its not pretty


  34. Echoes (unregistered) on January 10th, 2006 @ 2:19 am

    Oh and before you start thinking i’m from KHI, i’m not.


  35. .... (unregistered) on January 10th, 2006 @ 3:22 am

    i totally agree with “echoes”. punjabi4life’s post was disgustingly steeped in a stinking racist attitude. and reflects the shallowness of a very sad soul.

    i am muslim and punjabi and i grew up in karachi. its my ultimate HOME. so enough with the “bhaiyya” crap. plus there is no contradiction between being a muslim and punjabi…cos islam is not a racial movement ok…and it DOESNT belong to the arabs.

    and just for your info, arabs only make up 20% of the world muslim population today. so there. jeeez
