Who’s going to clean up?

The elections are finally over. Unsurprisingly, the ruling party that oversaw the election process with great diligence has been able to secure majority of the seats and so we can be spared any large scale unrest in the city.

But what still remains an eyesore are the countless kites and arrows along with party flags still at large all over the city. The walls are still graffitied with candidate names and the campaign billboards still haven’t been taken off. It is a surprise that the authorities cannot mobilize the public resources for un-vandalizing Karachi with the same efficiency with which they used it for self advertisement.

    Insha Allah our country will grow strong as strong foundation Musharraf has set for Pakistan. Today all parties know better that media is free and its going to be hard to put media in jail. Free media means they better think before they say anything. Because everything they say becomes part of record. Even free judiciary will play the same role. Will keep everyone on their feet. Every Pakistani must play a role of intelligence of Pakistan by keeping their eyes and ears open for the out sider enemies inside Pakistan.
    Now lets get on electricity , poor’s issues. Stop talking about other things lets talk about the needs of people.
    Amazing how some on tv are still complaining about Musharraf forgetting now they need to play their role. Many of them are paranoid about Musharraf. Musharraf does the right thing but they get scared.

    Sid, you have made a valid point here. It is important to take care of our city in terms of cleanness and other things, it is significant for the countries growth. I hope Pakistan will shine in the future more than ever before. My best wishes for the country.

    @SAB its a fact that while MQM was in power in sindh/karachi it had toned down its terrorist activities and had been projecting it as a peaceful place but the fact remains that MQM is a terrorist party and minute they’re out of power they’ll again resort to voilence and terrorist tactics to negotiate and get some share in power.. then they can also easily blame the ruling party for deteriorating law n order situation(while infact they’d themselves be orchestrating and planning terrorist activities)

    now all these hardened criminals and terrorist goons like Rehan Kana jr,Farooq Dada jr,Faheem Commando jr etc will be set free from their cages and be back in the streets to terrorize public

    Can’t agree more with Doctor. MQM is sure to make a hell out of Karachi as soon as it gets rid of these elections and all. They are criminals hardened and very very evil.

    karachi nazim and some other mqm people came on tv yesterday. saying their overtures to ppp amd pml-n are being ignored. also started making threats that if karachi burns, whole of pakistan will burn. looks like these bastards are getting ready.
    i say get ready for a final solution. station the army and rangers in karachi. then cut that black kanjars throat in london. when the mqm goons come out, shoot them all. deport the rest of the mqm people back from where they came (ie UP bihar) since they love india so much. will be bad for few months but long term it will be great.

    btw i have nothing against urdu speaking people. my wife is urdu speaking. NOT muhajir, she was born in pakistan. i think they are the most educated cultured by far of all people of pakistan. i just despise most of the mqm and what they stand for.

    I think MQM,s politics is based on only one thing, HATRED. Problems of common people in pakistan are the same…be it punjab, sind, karachi, balochistan, phuktuankwa or anywhere but MQM spreads hatred by blaming other communities. In reality all communities and all common people living in pakistan are faced with same problems.I hope people understand what i am saying.

    I myself belong to a urdu speaking community. We are the most educated people in pakistan n we should understand this.
