What to do when Violence is Expected

One KMB reader (Wellwisher) has these useful tips in Suggest Story section if any violence breaks in city. Readers can share their tips on how to better avoid trouble. Personally i would request anyone to have some short-cut routes to main areas that are not known to trouble makers usually. They rely more on main roads.

    My question is where are the gansta from MQM?Where is our govt and all these agencies that are supposed to be working for all of us.Including MQM.
    Pakistan is Failistan now.It was an experiemnt that failed.From White Raj to Fauji Raj.The poor people are getting more poor.Defense and all other high rent places are like membranes that are going to falter by the first wind that is coming in.

    I think looters did not belong to a particular political group,best thing was to deploy the rangers and army and bloody shoot them at sight.They don’t deserve any mercy,any legal actions just plain bullet.

    Well… these tips could be good in light of recent incident but not all times. I agree don’t carry valuable items and etc but some times it is better to travel on main roads instead in streets.

    Very good post indeed.

    In the last episode I just did that and was much safer at my office in Defence.

    I stayed till mid-night and then left for my home in Gulshan and it took me 20 minutes to reach Hasan Square …with another 20 minutes to drop some people on foot till Nazimabad Overhead and back to Gulshan.

    In my openion, based on the ground realities, the most practical solution of public protection should be “HELP YOUR SELF”. It is clear that administration is failed to protect its people & its our birth right to protect ourselves. I believe we all should allow to carry Fire Arms & weapons. I bet if we let the miscreants (who are basically the cowards of the coward) know that they can get the same what they offer, they would think many times before doing what they do. …..I ‘m sure no one die helpless, at least would take one or two with’em.

    i am participating in this thread for the first time so the blog with my name are not from me.

    Karachi is hijacked by the illeterate Pathans speacially who on the eve of benazir murder went on to the looting arsoning and killing spree they misbehaved with women on every corner every one in this city witnessed that and that is the reason why mini buses rickshaws and taxis speacially Kali Peeli are not torched infact a branch of khyber bank in SITE area is speared else all the banks in that areas even in same lane were looted and burnt.

    its a chilly lesson to all urdu speaking community as well as if they still not get united then worst is coming their way.

    BUSTED>>> “Doctor” is “Teeth Maestro” is “Dr. Awab Alvi”

    Hard to believe a real doctor spreading hatred and being racist!!!!

    helloo.. highlighting the chat i’d like to disscuss some points too. match the topic and the comments posted beneath it-do they match the topic? No they dont.. i might be no one to say this and im really sorry if some of my lines hurt some one. but id really like to highlight really important issues we are facing.
    The topic started, every one commented.. its good, but its really sad to see that people really ends up in fights, like seen above.. i dont know who the person DOCTOR is or people opposing him. BUT two pakistani or lets say MUSLIMS are fightiung amongst them. GUYS its some thing common now, everybody is after each other-people start fighting on little things.. WHAT ARE WE DOING? why are we fighting amongst each other.. we are BROTHERS-as stated by ISLAM.. if you are hurt beause of someones comment, its so good to express yor view.. but it can be done in a good way too.. im really not here to teach manners n all, but il really depressed what pakistani and pakistan has become.. we just FIGHT.. we are known as terrorist, do u really understand the meaning of TERRORIST? its sort of GHALI to US. PAKISTANIS wake upp, THROW OUT THIS TAG OUT OF US.. we really need to hold our nation up.. be something, stop fights and violence instead of fighting amomng our selves. Thats all we do.. Have u ever foucsed and thought about who might be the source who have made us fight? n why we are fighting? do we get something from it? RISE UP NATION… instead of fighting, we really need to be united now.
    i know all my stuff said above might be a LECTURE or something, but seriosly i dont mean to that. n i dont want to hurt someone. if someone gets hurt,I AM EXTREMELY SORRY.. hurting some one is not the reason im writing this but because to create an awareness. i love pakistan deep from my heart, and all pakistani’s and we are not terrorist. bus we need to show it up.. ill be happy to see everyone united.. i am again sorry for the big lecture. i am PROUD TO BE A PAKISTANI AND A MUSLIM=D
