Mosquito free Karachi???

It has been said by the city Nazim : “No limits to the fumigation budget” and sprays are observed around the metropolis.54 Machines are said to carrying the activity round the city. The fumigation is to continue, until dengue exits.

Does that ensure a mosquito free Karachi?? For How Long.

    We all have witnessed the fumigation, the fumes smell more like Diesel and have absolutely no effect on the mosquito population :(

    Do these machines have the ability to move around invisible? It’s been a month now and I have only succeeded to see one machine on Shahra-e-faisal once though I move out daily. My driver told me that he did see fumigation some time back in his area, in Gulshan. Do they fumigate from space with laser that not many of us were able to see it. Most of the people in Mujahid Barailvi’s programe said the same yesterday on TV. Actions speak louder then words.

    Apart from fumigation there is a serious need to improve the health facilities in govt. hospitals as we know not everyone can make it to private ones. Better coordination & dedicated attempt can sure change the situation on ground and we hope that we shall The bold & confident Nazim should take some fast but practical steps so Inshallah we would see a Dengue free Karachi soon.

    Heard this in the masjid lately. Wanted to share it with people on this forum. Got me thinking and reflect within meself when teh gentleman said that nowadays people ae running helter skelter, are in complete khauff and durr, open eating out places are completely deserted as they fear little machar. And he asked: What would be the scene if these people started fearing Allah in the same manner??? After all He is the one who created it all….the machars and us included!!!

    Karachi will be Machar free only and ONLY when people of Karachi start to keep their houses and mohalas clean.Full Stop. The Streets are full of shit and so much dirt its no wonder why mosquitos are everywhere. Dont get me wrong, I Love Karachi but im just pointing out a simple fact and task that everyone needs to follow

    NY, because “Those” people can see a machar but not Allah hence they don’t believe there is a supreme force controlling everything here and there.
