AAJ TV, we salute you

























Update : 3 C-Commander Karachi (who for himself always keep a 50+ vehicle brigade) rejects the plea for help & security by lawyers stuck in court (AAJ report)

Update : 2 ARY ONE WORLD journalist’s name is included in the list of people to be FORCEFULLY thrown out of SINDH.

Update 1 : Latest is that even the police that came (50 men) is nowhere now & AAJ TV is still under siege as i see smoke taking over my area completely now. Its been 7 hours now and the employee of AAJ TV are as helpless as a man in Jungle.

The scenes you are seeing on your TV screen are at walking distance. The firing is immense. It was well planned, completely organized , well equipped, fully assisted in human resource and ammunition and lasted over a period of 6 hours, a period of complete terror. At one time when i ran to close gate but i heard a burst of bullets outside our society & had to run back to safety.

AAJ TV today, created history today by fully & professionally brining live images, uncut. While it had to take the brunt of MQM’s wrath for showing MQM workers holding repeaters & AK-47 live on camera with party flags fluttering in air but that didn’t stop them from honoring their pledge to present truth to its audience.

We salute you AAJ TV. Some 50 around policemen have just arrived near AAJ TV now but that is nothing in comparison to some 250 mob full equipped & organized to rein in terror.

    the bastard general and goon Musharraf standing behind bullet proof saying “Mey bahadun houn aur boht jangain lara houn” and saying coward to CJ and his supporters. LOL

    Dictatorship in its true colors. Long live “Enlightment and Moderation”!

    Only some stupid “Terrorist” would carry its party flag to expose its Identity or someone is sensless enough to call the guy terrorist :-)

    “At one time when ran to scold my gatekeeper to close the gate, i heard a burst of bullets outside our society (and had to run back to safety)”, you said.

    But what became of the poor gatekeeper ???

    I’m surprised no one asked? :)

    Imram, kid, the problem is that ignorant like you keep an eye at one side while don;t pay attention that there is shit around you. People like you always seel excuse to blame others[Mullah here for instance] while always demonstrate impotency to curse own people. You like it or not but the current demonstration of violence is not by Mullahs but a bastard party who claims to be secuarlists and Liberals and say they are against danda shariat. God works in His own ways, people who used to condemn Mullahs are killing more people and sheding blood today. I know it’s not pleasent for you but just admit it. Secularists and Liberals demonstratng more extreemism and violence than anyone else in this country and this is NOT the first time.. Keep burning! as it does effect you only :-)

    why CJ shudn’t have come to Karachi? The Same CJ peacefully addressed in Gujrat, the hub of Chaudharies. The same CJ peacefully addressed in Peshawar and Islamabad[the hub of dictator’s supporters]. Why couldn’t he come Karachi?Karachi is not property of MQM!. Instead of showing Bara pan by giving CJ a safe channel to reach to Bar and adressed, the MQM goons showed the CHOTA PAN and made urdu speaking people embarassed by creating troubles for them. It just shows that we karachiites can’t welcome our guests?

    Ignorance shouldn’t be an excuse. Favoring MQM regardless of what does it do is pretty moronic thing. yes no political party is saint but MQM proved they are group of thugs who are violent and aggressive and ready to kill everyone including their own urdu speaking people. Those who died today were also urdu speaking people. What was their fault? May you get able to come out of ignorance and recognize your enemy.

    12th may 2004 when people got killed during election. 12th May seems to be a Manhoos day for Karachi.

    I second that Adnan. People have such short memories. Who can forget the carnage Karachi went through during early 90’s at the hands of this party?

    self, from where are you posting all urdu content? BBC?

  10. ash (unregistered) on May 12th, 2007 @ 11:43 pm

    i am sorry adnan …so if a MQM supporter is carrying an MQM flag and burning a bus thats a terrorist but when PPP suporters burn busses carrying the PPP flag then i am stupid for thinking that they are doing the same ‘terrorism” :) …thanks for the education.
    This is usual karachi politics PPP MQM IJI shitting on each other is no surprise …why are you blaming secularism for that? oh maybe because you take every oppurtunity to blame secularism.

  11. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 12th, 2007 @ 11:56 pm

    ASh you called PPP terrorist because the guy was carrying the flag. Who here said that MQM guys were carrying “Flags”? even if the guy was carrying MQM’s flag then I was not going to call him an MQM Terrorist. Use brain if you can. Don;t be a devil’s advocate . People know that MQM is involved in this bloodshed so don’t blame PPP or some XYZ here just because you abhor them.

    Why shouldn’t I blame secularism Kid? MQM’s majority is secularist and MQM itself says they are liberals and secularist. If they had not claimed somethnig like that then I wouldnt have said something like this but after Turkey, the dictator and his goons proved that secularism is extreeme cabal who doesn;t want to hear their oponents. The world first witness the extreme face of secularism in Turkey and now in Pakistan. The interesting thing is that leaders of both state are fan of Ataturk :-)

  12. Imran (unregistered) on May 12th, 2007 @ 11:57 pm

    “the current demonstration of violence is (not) by Mullahs”

    No, its not by the (pious) Mullahs, they are simply orchestrating from the backdrop … hoping/ rather ‘praying’ to be the beneficiaries of the bloody mayhem of May 12 2007.

    MULLAHS, YOU WILL NEVER COME INTO POWER TO RULE PAKISTAN WITH A DIVINE MISSION. Your dream to heap your “fundamentalist” point of view and your zeal to subjugate women will NEVER be realized (in Pakistan).

    – With apologies to Mullah Adnan Siddiqui :)

  13. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:07 am


    Imran, my friend you are already suffering and I can feel it here. I better leave you alone. :-)

    How non-mullahs deal with woman, The video of Sherry Rahman and Yousuf Raza Gilani is enough to learn ;)

  14. tee (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:09 am

    hey Imran can u plz define ‘fundamentalism’? and i mean DEFINE, not rail off ur tirade against MULLAHs!
    isn’t ‘fundamentalism’ and ‘fundamentals’ derived from ‘fundamentals’?

  15. BitterTruth (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:12 am

    i don’t see any Mullah factor here..why we have to blame everything on mullah?
    People are being killed and you are just saying killing is ok as long as no mullah is there. you will accept a killer but not a mullah..
    Mullah or no mullah at least we should condemn violence

  17. Red_Munk!! (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:13 am

    ……..yet again im :S as to how & where did the “mullahs” come into this discussion.

    Clearly Mr.Imran has some devine foresight that we do not share, for everyone else seems to think that today was “MQM vs everyone else”.

    You keep chanting that you are not pro mqm, yet you repeatedly post, in bold letters, that Mullahs shall not win.

    …..shouldnt u have been doing that during the Lal-Masjid bs?? :S.

    Or do u suffer from some sort of memory loss & we should expect you to chant anti-gov slogans next time the taliban/ninja’s burn a Video shop down??

    Just askin.


    ASH, uve already proven that u can think outside the box, ure point is correct in, “Terrorism is terrorism. Be it from the ruling party or the oposition”. @ the end of the day the ppl of Karachi have suffered.

    But just a small Q,

    If a few opposition parties are shown carrying flags while carrying out unforgiviable acts,
    it seems to show them in the true light.

    But if there are countless pictures/eye-witness reports of the ruling party doing the same,
    the said pictures are

    “Fishy/False or Media bias”!.

    So what is it??

    Do u still maintain that MQM does more good than bad??

  18. JK (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:17 am

    MULLAHS, YOU WILL NEVER COME INTO POWER TO RULE PAKISTAN WITH A DIVINE MISSION. Your dream to heap your “fundamentalist” point of view and your zeal to subjugate women will NEVER be realized (in Pakistan).

    first worry about mqm secularists/liberals making fuss on the streets of karachi. do you support their actions?

  19. Concerned (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:17 am

    The blood shed started bec PPP and JI couldnt let MQM run the day. MQM wanted the CJ to take a helicopter to his speech, but ur beloved PPP and JI TERRORIST did not want tht.

    Adnan understand this, tali ek haath se nahi bajti. every one is to blame, I admit MQM didnt do it right, u should also admit tht ur other frinds had a big part to play in it too.

  20. JK (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:21 am

    concerend you are making a lousy argument. the CJ rally was announced first, so it was their right. mqm announced later and delibrately chose a clahing route. keep your facts straight.

  21. karachi4eva (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:33 am

    10 mahajirs dead so no one gonna talk about that?
    and yeah on the other side some punjabi owned tv station showed couple of guys with mqm flag soo?? and what about this pic here is that a mqm flag again?
    yeah please show me more hatred because its only gonna make me more proud of being MAHAJIR then EVER!
    and how come your CJ refused to take a chopper when he was offered? and when he was a CJ how many time he actually went to “Quaid-E-Azams” mazar??

  22. tee (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:34 am

    i recall the television channels reporting that the CJ has refused to use the helicopter…… where did PPP and JI terrorists come from? or is the CJ now a PPP/JI terrorist?

    دوسری طرف عوامی نیشنل پارٹی کے مرکزی صدر اسفندیار ولی خان نے پشاور میں ایک پریس کانفرنس کے دوران پشاور ہائی کورٹ بار ایسوسی ایشن کی جانب سے اعلان کردہ ہڑتال کی حمایت کا اعلان کیا۔

    انہوں نے کراچی میں ہونے والے ہنگاموں کی مذمت کرتے ہوئے الزام لگایا کہ ایم کیو ایم وزیراعظم شوکت عزیز کی جانب سے ملک میں ایمرجنسی نافذ کرنے کے بیان کو عملی جامہ پہنانے کی کوشش کر رہی ہے۔انہوں نے کہا کہ چیف جسٹس کے لاہور کے دورے کے موقع پر چھبیس گھنٹے کی مسافت طے کرنے کے باوجود ایک بھی پتھرنہیں پھینکا گیا جبکہ بقول ان کے ایم کیو ایم نے ایک منظم سازش کے تحت کراچی میں چیف جسٹس کے اترنے کے ساتھ ہی ہنگاموں کا سلسلہ شروع کردیا۔

    A backlash from the rest of the country against MQM seems to be on the horizon. MQM office in Quetta has been burnt. What goes round comes round.

  25. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:45 am

    Concerned, so if I oppose MQM means I favor PPP or some XYZ here? this stupid rant is not different than if I oppose Musharraf’s so called enlightment,I am MUllah. YOu don’t even know but then..you are free to make your wild imagination :-). No further comments.

    Ignoring these MQM apologetics, The thing which seems very upset is that MQM is blaming a Pathan group ANP and published stupid pics to claim they are Pathans who created all fuss. Just visit this URL. Here they show a guy ,looks like pathan,wearing a ID card and have been circled. MQM’s mentality is not different than mentality of ASh who called the guy PPP terrorist because eh carried the flag. Maybe Ash is their advisor and leading them;). Now pathans are not so much “PATHANS” that they would wear their party badges.

    MQM keeps doing mistake. Why MQM was in hurry to publish pictures? What did they want to prove? some sorta fear that news agency would publish images of MQM activists on TV? or they got puzzled after watching live footage of people who were firing at Business Recorder Building? Day before yesterday they made another foolish mistake that MQM’s Imran farooq gave statment of Condemnation only after 3 hours of attack. Munir’s house was attacked around 1:00 AM night and Imran farooq released the statment around 4 PM which later published on Jang paper around 6:00 AM. The other interesting thing is Governer’s statment was Pubslished at 7:00 AM on Jang’s website. Was governer not sleeping for the whole night or he had already made a template of statment so tht it could be released early in the morning. Nothing is going in favor of MQM. I can just hope Allah gives them some sense to understand the reality.

  26. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 12:57 am

    self, i dont think so oponents burnt MQM office. A party who killed Azeem Tariq,his own men can kill others as well.

    KHI4EVA: I am a MOHAJIR but not an MQM supporter. Learn first thing tonight, NOT every Mohajir had joined MQM. Several other parties also had urdu speaking politicians.

    I would recommend people to watch COMPANY,the Indian movie. MQM’s strategy is not different than the Bombay’s Underworld system.

  27. ash (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 1:07 am

    RM, i think that their position of responsibility makes the MQM more culpable than anyone else for today. As for more good or bad? -not diff from any other party in karachi. A lot of bad. Some good.

  28. redsnapper (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 1:12 am

    I start to write here on the blogs but when I see the discussion drifiting to mqm/others, mulla/non-mulla, I sometimes think what’s the point.

    No party is right and, for some, their party is not wrong. The dilemma of Karachi is so evident here. Its either MQM or the JI. Whoever can hold the stronger punch.

    MQM was wrong in inciting trouble by holding a rally on May 12. They should not have been so insecure. Or, alternately, they should not have poodled their way behind Mush. Mistake.

    Other political parties capitalizing on CJ issue. Wrong there too.

    Maturity needed by all … well it was shown elsewhere in the past few weeks. The backlash at MQM is because they could have just passed the baton just like Pervez Elahi did in Lahore.

    Instead, they chose to incite/poodle. In doing so, they went overboard. I feel strongly they hurt their vote bank. A pity because I feel political parties mature over time.

    everyone knows the great sacrifices made by the urdu speaking people for pakistan.

    it’s time to assimilate in the pakistan we live in. plssss at least don’t call your self a Muhajir:))

    look at the afghan muhajirs being forced to go back to afghanistan.

    muhajir means short term resident:)

    anyways…..we are all from karachi and it does not matter where we came from.

    my heart is bleeing at what is happening to my beloved city. it’s a bigger torture when i am sitting in dubai with my parents/brother and cousins in karachi. the mind is going mad with bad thoughts about their safety!

MQM’s terrorist were being supplied fresh heavy arms in cars (a white cultus and alto were repeatedly shown supplying heavy arms to these terrorists.. it remained parked next to newtown dairy gurmundir even till evening) and they were all taking positions in a paramilitary style action… Ajj tv repeatedly showed MQM’s terrorist firing on its building and after Altaf’s rally was over all MQM’s goons gathered outside Ajj tv and started abusing and pelting stones at the building while their compatriots continued firing

    The historic debilitating, devastating and depriving day of 12th May, I was scrolling the channels on air to unleash the expected chaos in the city of lights which was burning under the raging fire, arms and ammunation fantasizing the glory of evil. It was a humiliating doomed sight of menace created and accordingly planned to exhibit unrivaled power and supremacy.
    I respect and salute the efforts exerted by the entire team of Aaj TV who somehow managed to bring the best coverage of the realistic situation.
    I realised quite early that if there is a channel which deserves viewership which can expose truth to the common man then this is the one. Its evident and understandable that its not easy to survive when an artificial fraudalent vision is condemned… Seeing is believing But normally what channels show is not what it really is, Despite the fact freedom of speech is allotted to Media but it is only allotted to eventually support and upbring Govt policies and Acts. The Strong Media Sources are even somehow co-related to the present Govt whilst the might of freedom has been also provided to them by the present Govt itself. Truth which can radically deteriorate Govt’s image is hidden or is debated to an extent and finally covered with a shining foiling approach, it is also possible that meanwhile a different situation/event occuring might get an exclusive projection which disects and diversifies the attention of the majority.

    Of all the newspapers and television channel in Karachi’s history only AAJ TV. has had the guts to expose the true face of the MQM. No newspaper including the ever objective Dawn and The News, and no news channel including the much celebrated Geo and ARY have had the balls to portray the true face of the terrorists that MQM are. Our independent media criticises everyone from Musharraf to Nawaz to Benazir, but somehow in Karachi the MQM always escaped criticism, highlighting the strong hold the terrorists and that fat pig in London control Karachi. Well done AAJ Tv we are proud of you…

    Can someone put the 5 hours of video which was shown live on AAJ TV on youtube.com as a lot of commentators mentioned again and again or somewhere. People all over the world like to know what happened in our beloved karachi.

    We only saw a bad quality 2 min video on youtube.

    We need the whole transmission on web

    ITs SAD, Really, BUT MQM is responsible more than any one else, Thats why majority of Urdu speaking PPL are ashamed today here in US. They should realise today they have got the power but tomorrow…..

    To MB:
    This is my first visit to this blog. I have seen a lot of intolerance behaviour from you and some other fellow writers of this blog. You called prime minister Shouket Aziz as “MUSH SPOON is barking”. And “MUSH” means Pervez Musharraf? And fat pig for Altaf Hussain by OMAR (Same for you) ….. Please don’t go at that stage where you can’t go back. Yes, we should condemn the 12th MAY incident with full force but do you know that when a man has nothing to left anything to say then he starts barking!!
    All of you, had condemned the terrorist activities of MQM on 12th MAY but did not condemned the terrorism of other parties like PPP , ANP, PPI, PML (N), HAQIQI group, Sunni Tehrek, Jamat-e-Islami …. If you don’t condemn the terrorist acts of these parties then it means that YOU ARE IN FAVOUR of criminal acts of these parties.
    You people only see ONE SIDE of the picture. For the other side of this picture, wait till VIDEOS of these terrorist parties will be ON aired. Some people has recorded these inhuman acts as videos . Till then, see these pictures of 12th MAY :


    It seems that your entire blog is ANTI-MQM so, my post looks bitter for you. So don’t worry, you can delete my post!!

    Respected sir,

    Subject: Bargaining to prescribe the medicines

    Here I want to share a serious and unexplored issue of our society.
    I am medical representative in sanofi aventis pharmaceutical and have 8 years experience in sales.

    1) This sales segment is more corrupt than our police because most of the Pharmaceutical companies offer attractive incentives to prescribe their drugs or force to prescribe those drugs with have not any value to treat the patient like food supplements multivitamins
    2) Many Pharmaceutical companies set high prices of their products and
    Offer Cars, air conditioners, foreign pleasure trips, cash etc.
    3) Why I am encompassing to these activities in corruption.

    Because doctors knows that the medicine costing, for example 100 rupee to patient is also available in 30 rupees or less which have same or even better efficacy same salt or ingredient better company repute and faith on results and economy to the patient. The doctor will not prescribe this medicine because he has not given money. Believe me that more than 60% doctors are bargainers and ignore the patient benefits and prioritize their personal financial benefits.
    This kind of practice is not in a single medicine or a few companies but this is a unethical trend or let me say, Selfishness Poison penetrated in vessels of doctors and pharma marketers.
    Here I want to elaborate my case
    Different manufacturers with many brand names market Ofloxacine, salt
    Like Tarivid ,Tariflox.ofloxin ,willoxin,oflobid,floxy etc ( more than 70 brands available in pakistan)
    The price of one tablet(of Ofloxacine) varies from 2 rupees to 29 rupees. Here 2 rupees is minimum price charged for a tablet and 29 rupee is maximum per tablet but most of the manufactures have price for this salt in between 10 to 20 rupees.
    If a manufacturer having price 20 rupees per tablet offers 5 rupees per tablet as incentive for doctor and other manufacturer having 10 rupee price does not give a penny to the doctors but provides superior efficacy than 20 rupee tablet in exactly same salt and doctor prescribes Rs 20 tablet even after knowing all fact is blunder with patient and dishonesty with his profession. Because patients do not know the price of different brand or event they do not know; what is salt.
    Kindly keep in mind; this is example regarding one salt, which exactly applies to about all the countless medicines.
    The authority seems impotent on this issue. So can we do anything on this issue? Or does anyone have already taken any action for this right now? If you know any information, please let me know.”
    I also accept that all are not bad but believe me this is not scarce also.
    Kind help me to create awareness in patients or to change the behavior of cream of our society (i.e. doctors).
