Love Karachi

iluvkhi.gifEjaz Asi has just posted a few images of ‘I Love Karachi‘ I think with all the problems that this city continues to face it is important to show solidarity for the city of Karachi. He quite simply says ‘Spread Love, Not Hatred. Say NO to Injustice, corruption and hatred‘ I agree

Check out his blog for a few more variations and go all out to support your city

    I think it would be great if we put these banners for permanent display somewhere at our blogs/sites for that little sunshine we all so dearly dream of every day. Thank you.

    I have been observing the politics of karachi with an intent for over a year now. I have realised that the root of all the problems that our city faces is jhalat, be it the 5/12 incident or a normal day to day traffic jam.Most of these problems are man created and one of the major causes for this is the lack of education and common sense.

    This Social-Enterprise aims to get rid of this JHALAT that exist by educating the citizens about the problems, K.A.L.H aims to empower youth, by providing them with a platform where they can express themselves. K.A.L.H wants to abridge the gap that exists between the social classes in the city by creating job oppurnities and by trying to get rid of corruption.K.A.L.H would try and improve the infrastructure of the city by educating the citiznes on how to make they most of what they have and by rasing funds for the goverment to improve the infrastructure, not only that K.A.L.H would focus particular attention on the sports and recreational activites.This is going to be a long and trying process, we will need to be patient but once we have achived it , karachi we love is going to be back.

    Assalam o alaikum,
    Continuing the previous thought, even as tee shirts.

    Can anyone suggest as to where I can watch a clip of Altaf Hussain’s speech at tibet center.
    I heard that he sounded like a raving lunatic.

  7. Ejaz Asi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 9:43 pm

    Original Faisal, you can watch Geo, ARY One or AAJ right now (8:30pm) live to these idiots – Dr Farooq Sattar et al.

    I am truly concerned for the propaganda they are spreading in their press conference. I am also concerned about how the commoner (who usually can’t read our posts for sure) will take this and have his judgement further screwed and distorted.

    This is getting even more appaling situation. You can find many many people here who think MQM is the real problem of Karachi but the problem is that most of the readers of KMB, ATP or other blogs are quite educated, socially and economically better and satisfied (to a certain extent as compared with most of the abadi of Karachi) hence I fear we are gonna miss the real people who have been deceived previously and now again are they being targeted by false accusations, immensely distorted and thin reality grip and mass-propaganda… I wonder how many News agencies and Media outlets will NOW be covering unbiased opinion and analysis will go which direction.

    If there was a need to strengthen ourselves, educate other POOR AND IGNORANT people and spread love, it wasn’t in 90s or 80s but HERE and NOW.

    Ejaz have you got your approval from Altaf Bhai?

  9. tee (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 10:04 pm

    @ Ejaz
    yes the blatant lies Farooq Sattar and his cronies are coming up with at the press conference are surely a cause of concern. just one point though, its not just the poor and illiterate people who are misled, its also a large part of the so-called educated class who choose to remain aloof from the other side of the picture who’ll fall for those lies.

  10. Ejaz Asi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 10:15 pm

    Dear Tee, I am having hard time writing this. I went through EarthQuake05 and it still gives me goosebumps all over to think of the chaos and now we are made to go through this man-made calamity.

    I totally agree and have already pointed out at many places about the complacent behavior of US and those who enjoy even better social and economic lifestyles. I often question my friends if or how many people from Korangi, Orangi, New Karachi and Mohajir Camp do they know and have met and talked with. What are their lives like? What do they dream and have aspirations of? etc etc…

    But still, its this Lowest Common Denominator who’s not only misled but also made believe to do the killings and be killed on false SELF ideas. Have you watched “The Century of Self”. God, how I hid my face with shame, disgust and shock the first time I saw this. It was all so pervasive and compelling and yet how easily those who are in power lead everyone to believe THEY MATTER whereas NO ONE MATTERS TO THEM because they already have enough power to chew…

    Anyways, the bottom line is that you have seen people here on your blog and elsewhere somewhat more united on this MQM thing than any other matter, so it all looks sweet and nice on surface but we need to find ways to protect ourselves, strengthen ourselves, reach out to underdogs and under-privileged population SOMEHOW… This would be the biggest service KMB and other thinktank bloggers could do to the city. After all, this is citizen journalism.

    he sounded like a villain. a monster. a baakemono.

  12. tee (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 10:32 pm

    @ Ejaz
    yes i hundred percent agree with all u’ve said. the point i was trying to make was that the poor might be forced into things while the educated go justifying the wrongs. but yes whatever u’ve said is also very very true. i just wish we could do something abt the sad situation…..but like always the majority will forget and yesterday’s impression will soon fade from our minds…and we move on….voting for the same ppl in the next election…. sad :(

  13. Citizenofkhi (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 10:45 pm

    I totally agree with you that its the uneducated ppl mostly (other then mqm’s cartoon) who are morally supporting mqm , but then the only way the uneducated ppl could see the real pict. and can learn is through media and the media is also not showing the real pict. of what is happening, as they are forced not to show the real pict. of these morons. So I couldn’t see the solution of this problem in the new future.

    Even if most of the ppl are uneducated who takes mqm ‘s side they should have the common sense to understand that the bhagora is enjoying a really good life and bcoz of his jahil mentally retarted cartoon, normal ppl’s life is getting mesirable so why dont they understand that they should not vote them.

  14. original-faisal (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 11:00 pm


    Oh yes! Now he goes ahead and gives orders
    to maintain law and order. Now he speaks of
    the sanctity of lives and property. What a
    joke! What a sad, cruel joke on the unwitting
    populace of Karachi.

    Ejaz Asi, thank you for the suggestion but
    unfortunately, I don’t have access to Geo
    here in the states. I just wanted to watch
    a bit of his speech because I heard that,
    with all his shrieking and crying, he sounded
    like a raving mad man making a speech while
    high on something or another.

  15. Red_Munk!! (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 11:49 pm

    Guys lets keep things positive here :).

    Good job Ejaz. Will spread it :).

    Faisal: wait a bit. mqm is always at the forefront of “techmologie” & in time the speech will find its way on You-Tube.

  16. A for [pine]apple (unregistered) on May 13th, 2007 @ 11:51 pm

    @Original faisal: Yup the speech by him was way too lunatic … many channels showed it (geo, rung, ary)and I guess u can get it from YouTube sooner or later (or maybe from MQM’s own site)

    The most ****** part was when he repeatedly said “iftikhar chaudhry kiya tumhay chain aagaya” with a certain emotional flavour (that’s typical of altaf bhai).

  17. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on May 14th, 2007 @ 1:10 am

    asma yeah, now the lawyers planning to submit case against Altaf,Mush and MQM politicians,contempt of court.

    Faisal, the speech might be available on Youtube, sooner or later.

    beautiful post.

    Beautiful post, and a very cute Image ;).

  23. Monkey (unregistered) on May 14th, 2007 @ 3:56 pm

    What is happening to this city of ours? :(

  24. SELF (unregistered) on May 14th, 2007 @ 8:53 pm

    I love Karachi is an abstract concept. What we really need is to love fellow karachites and treat them with respect which really brings the message home.

    I love Karachites…and I love Pakistanis.

  25. A for [pine]apple (unregistered) on May 15th, 2007 @ 1:30 am

    @Self: Things usually exist in entities, encapsulating certain other objects in itself … Likewise you can take PAKISTAN as a larger entity parenting the nooks, people; and every related object in itself … If I say I love Pakistan … basically I’m saying that I love pakistanis, cities, towns, waters, mounts, and almost everything related to it (though I’m not sure about corruption et al.)

    So I guess that’s what goes with this slogan too … {and it was just a thought not a SE lesson}

  28. Naeem (unregistered) on May 23rd, 2007 @ 11:30 pm

    I agree with some of you that the real solution to Karachi’s problems lies in availability of good quality education. The mugging up and rutafication in exams have made our youth unaware of the importance of thinking and justification. They see things but with shut minds…hence they dont know what they are doing and why? Can some people, who really love Pakistan, come forward and do something to initiate application and value based education system? If we dont start it now, then it will be really very very late, and even a poor and less educated Indian or Bangladeshi will be better than our so called graduates in terms of thoughtfulness and logic. May Allah show us the right path and we come to our senses.

  29. NAEEM (unregistered) on June 2nd, 2007 @ 6:23 pm

    Let the MQM work for Karachi and let the people of this city drink clean water, have more electricity, drive without traffic jams by working peacefully for a few more years..Its a cosmopolitan city, where people from all areas of Pakistan come and earn their living. Dont bring any irrelevant/over-sensitive matters to its politics for some time for it bleeds more than any other place in the country.
