Phantom of the Mortuary

How many times have we heard of haunted houses in our childhood? Almost every friend i have attested to knowing atleast one place in their neighbourhood which was either
1) haunted by ghosts
2) resided by jinnat
3) was scary to even go into, hence MUST be haunted by ghosts

And the same goes with graveyards, and with mortuaries. The one thing which i didn’t expect was it to make a news item! The shared mortuary at SMC and JPMC has had weird going ons recently with quite a few people hearing unexplained noises coming from there when working deep into the night.

Question: Why do ghostly noises come only at night? Why cant we, for once, have a daytime ghost appearence?

Remember any ghost houses from your past?

    My Uncle has seen a headless Ghost near this place outside the Gora Qaberustan, and another one of my relative who is a doctor saw bottles dancing with fire on their mouth at 2: am near the JPMC mortuary…

    The house right behind Mohatta palace is supposed to be haunted, I have been there quite a few times, personally I never saw anything but people claim they have.

    I can bet JPMC is going to get quite a few visitors over the weekend.

    Has anyone heard about the story of lal kothi Sharah e faisal? Many Karachiites beleived that this place was haunted..

    Erratum to my comments above:

    Please read it as Cheel kothi rather than Lal Kothi (which is in North Nazimabad).

    concerned: i’ve heard about the house near mohatta palace, however, that place (or the road specifically) is famous for reasons other than the supernatural :P

    Mansoor, wht ur talking about only happens at the end of the road in the parking lot. the house is in the beginning of the road :D

    Bhaioon thing is I have met many ppl who said “Mere Abbu ne dekh hai” or “Mere mamo ne dekha hai”… I want to meet a Young Chap who says that yes I have seen so and so thing.

    How about in the old days when Shahrah e Faisal was Drigh Road and deserted at night. A police inspector saw a pale woman in white standing in the middle of the road. She wanted a ride, and he dropped her off an old house. When she walked into the house he saw that her feet were on backwards!! Churail ke paon ulte hothain hain!!

    Tell this story to your young cousins at night and then tell them to go look out of the window. Bhuwahahahahaa!!

    Anyone who does not believe in JINNATs is a fool. Yes, they exist and they live in the same world as we do. Holy Quran tell us of Jinnats so there is no point of actually doubting it

  15. Imran (unregistered) on February 18th, 2007 @ 7:01 am

    There is no point beliving in Jinnat’s due to relegion. But as Faraz mentioned all we have heard about but never seen.
    WHy it happens in night and in haunted places.. the answer is our stupid brain.
    In Fear it secretes special chemical and impairs our vision. Many Psychadelic drugs do play with brain also. Many people who see strange happenings share a very common feeling of getting sick the next day or high fever again indication of a fearful brain activity (poor thing).
    Also some criminals play “Haunted” to keep ordinary public away from something.
    I have personally expereinced 2 hauntings. IN both cases found the logical reason for it and once eliminated strange whispers and vibration of bed vanished.

    I meant “No point disbleiving” in above reply.

  17. Shiraz (unregistered) on February 18th, 2007 @ 11:44 am

    I have seen such things and felt them more than once in my life. No, I did not get sick the next day or at the time at all as Imran might think so above. I don’t like telling anyone about it, because no one really believes it until they see it themselves.

    I am interested to know and perhaps would like to solve the mystery too!

    Jinnat’s are explained to be made of soemthing which are made of “fire” means of light spectrum our eyes are uncapable of seeing.
    Similarly Bhoot’s or dead ppl cannot be seen. For that we have solve mystery of death. and Rooh if exists cannot be in this very world in physcial form (has to be metaphyscial). Thats why our brain is in dark shell (skull) to see (process data from eye) and transmit data for “rooh”. To understand that deeply we have to understand that what we see is not “reality” just electrical impulses brain is processing.
    Disconnection from Rooh to body is death. If rooh was capable of “seeing” walking around then “body” was not required. How well we know our brain anyways.

    But I am still open to find mystery, may be I am an ignorant logical person and there is another reality.

    Imran, I agree jinnat are made of fire, but they are also capable of taking other forms which we can see. It’s hard to explain and some things are not explainable no matter how hard we try.
