    Mullah on rampage again – bombs won’t stop until Pakistan fully become Talibanistan, with traquality of beards in blacks all around.

    I can’t help but say Islam Zindabad.

    Media is Biggest Culprit of this mess ! Media Par Allah ke laanaat, !

    most of these areas are pathan dominated, so i highly doubt ‘taliban mullahs(as you have tagged them)’ were involved in these blasts.. on the other hand british grand terrorist Altaf bai during last few days was busy giving some venomous statements.. and as always even before news channels broke the story Altaf bai issued condemnation of blast(it seems as if this guy had been waiting for blasts to happen and then instantly issued condemnation statements)

    nazim karachi as always is busy complaining that x hospital is not under control of city govt its under control of sindh govt,when ever something goes wrong he starts blaming sindh govt otherwise he just takes credit for everything else..

    Inna lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihee Rajion

    Thats a sad news to hear.

    Is it a response from RAW for Indian Embassy Blast in Kabul? I wonder…


  5. d0ct0r on July 7th, 2008 @ 9:13 pm

    first venomous statements then these blasts in predominantly pathan dominated areas.. a preplanned attempt to incite ethnic riots..


  6. d0ct0r on July 7th, 2008 @ 9:27 pm

    @jamash whats up with mango mango pir maybe you ate too many mangoes today? :P

    its Manghopir


  7. d0ct0r on July 7th, 2008 @ 9:34 pm

    that dictator was in karachi for 2 days, his mates from MQM were also busy defending him,maybe they planned something up to find a pretext for some unconstitutional step.. (Mairay Aziz Hamwatno, democracy failed,democratic govt failed,so i am back!)


  8. Adnan Siddiqi (adnansiddiqi) on July 7th, 2008 @ 9:36 pm

    this is the first time north nazimabad was targeted. I second Shamsi and doctor in their respective statements.

    Moron Gillani is on honeymoon and condemning from Malaysia. Shame on him. he should have canceled the trip. he’s attending as without Pakistan G8 will get screwed.


  9. mastqalandar on July 7th, 2008 @ 9:42 pm

    Doctor,

    I just read DAWN and Jang and I can see what you meant by PEERs Statements

    Without these blasts I would think what is he talking about (Talibanization of Sindh karachi?)???

    He is an associate of the SHOCK Doctrine, so nothing is impossible.


  10. kirannazish on July 7th, 2008 @ 9:42 pm

    They are trying to evacuate pathans from the city.

    […] people injured in a series of blast in Karachi. The particular zone has been targetted severely which covers Karachi central rea, North Nazimabad […]


  12. obiwankenobe on July 7th, 2008 @ 10:15 pm

    Doctor, could you please stop propaganda at this time ?? We are sick of your tirade against MQM ..


  13. Shamsi (shamsi) on July 7th, 2008 @ 10:36 pm

    Parliment exist,
    Provincial assemblies exist,
    National assembly exist,
    Federal Cabinet is functional,
    Senate is functional,
    Federal System is functional,

    – what is problem in moving no confidence motion to oust President Musharraf –

    Pathans in Karachi, in past 4 months they have matured as citizens of the city and distanced themselves from what is happening & NWFP.

    with Due respect to commentator "evacuation of pathans from City" – It is Pakistan, Province of SINDH, MegaCity of Karachi, it is not Gaza in Occupied Territory which can be evacuated or cordoned off.

    Again what would the comentator say about blast in Islamabad, who is target for evacuation.

    Peshawer is cordoned and surrounded by Goons, Pathan with a better vision of future are moving their families out of NWFP, and migrating settling across River Attock and property prices across Attock river have gone up 100% since after election and ANP took over and FAILED to deliver what they have promised.

    It is about pushing the whole country into Anarchy and Chaos,

    WE Must Strike across border with same "attitude" both in India & Afghanistan and treat THEM as Archrival ENEMIES as before.

    Afghanistan IS – WAS – WILL NEVER BE FRIEND OF PAKISTAN, THEY WALKED OUT AND DECLINED TO ACCEPT PAKISTAN IN UN AFTER 14 08 1947,

    INDIA – LALA IS TERMITE FOR PAKISTAN

    Well, lets see Altafs statement tomorrow.

    I’m sure he is ready to take the next step.


  16. IUnknown (iunknown) on July 8th, 2008 @ 12:43 pm

    i think we shud seriously repent infront of ALLAH.This is all happening due to our bad deeds.

    Rulers are according to the deeds of People. This has been mentioned in the Hadith.

    Mush and Zardari are biggest terrorists and theives. We need escape from them else Pakistan will not be Pakistan.


  17. IUnknown (iunknown) on July 8th, 2008 @ 12:46 pm

    @shamsi: i didnt get ur point about media. What did u want to say?

    I wonder why doctor ever bother to write comment abt Altaf. Just leave him alone yaar. Why are u wasting ur time over him. Write some thign good instead :)


  18. concerned on July 8th, 2008 @ 3:09 pm

    @Doctor yar hud hoti hai. You dont miss any opportunity to go anti MQM. Dude chill.

    If you dont mind can I please ask what party you are affiliated to, ie who would you vote for?


  19. zeeshan on July 8th, 2008 @ 3:41 pm

    Adnan Siddiq: Marry Doctor :)

    Secondly, can everyone feel this weird silence from other KMB authors? MB, Teeth Maestro etc, they’d JUMP on anything and EVERYTHING related to Musharraf and MQM. I remember Karachi Metblogs had many anti mqm, ush posts prior to elections and then in April etc

    Now, when the their popular and favorite government is failing and has taken a nose-dive, they are silent. Oh my god! How SICK can these people get?


  20. iakhan on July 8th, 2008 @ 9:10 pm

    Each time you think, it cant get any worse…and something much worse happens


  21. Shamsi (shamsi) on July 8th, 2008 @ 11:14 pm

    I very highly appreciate a Quick sensible statment from Asfandyar Wali of ANP & press briefing from Shahi Saiyed in Karachi.


    to you mr.lost (iunknown)

    MY point, is clear – MEDIA is always Playing NEGATIVE, and TRYING TO PUSH WORDS to the mouth of officials & political bastards.

    DIG BOND a sensible policeman is playing a leading role as extortionist trying to containing the Non-sense rumors, and progressing in a Failed Operation in Liyari he sure is using his BRAINs., by rubbing balls of Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza in SINDH while Lady Mirza is doing well as Bhuounpoo (speaker) of Federal National Assembly

    now we all know who got unlimited and endless supplies of spray paint and can turn city’s walls into abusive graffiti board instantly on short notice after orders are passed down from speaker phone of grand terrorist of Edgware street.

    img520.imageshack.us/img520/1590/imrankhanmqmchalkingsl4.jpg

    now take a look at these images published on one of Altaf bai’s site to prove talibanization of karachi(notice how extremely sorry he is for these inciting slogans)

    img519.imageshack.us/img519/3668/mqmtalibanizingkarachibe2.jpg

    seems like Altaf bai’s taliban got another phone call from Edgware street to spray paint the city walls red.

    NROfied MQM leadership will be meeting in London,while NROfied Shareek have summoned PPP leadership in dubai for a meeting, all these NROfieds will be meeting to discuss the CURRENT SITUATION in the country..


  23. muzz on July 9th, 2008 @ 8:30 am

    d0ct0r, i am getting very curious!! please tell us all what they did to you?


  24. altafbest on July 9th, 2008 @ 11:24 am

    dr. goes overboard sometimes but MQM IS a curse which must be obliterated. i have been quiet here cause for the past few months MQM did show some patience and i was giving them benefit of doubt. but it seems as soon as signs were coming up that their ‘revenue’ schemes were being bottled up. with nazim’s powers curtailed and his recent outbursts, it seems they are showing their colors again.
    it was probably india behind it IMO. retaliation for Kabul bombing but logistics 100% carried out by MQM. if the blasts were in pashtun areas that is. i remember back in early 90’s, if an incident happened in say kashmir or muslims were killed by indian security. this black bugger (pir rahmatullah) would coincidentally either appear on TV wailing, or an incident would happen in karachi. all to divert attention.
    back to banaras for MQM people. waha hi sahee hain. yahan akay jeena haram kardiya.


  25. cyrenity on July 9th, 2008 @ 12:00 pm

    altafa kutta involve ha …. bas khatam kero behes ab :P:P:P:D:D:D

  27. mkasa on July 9th, 2008 @ 7:23 pm

    Believe me all the politician are culprit. All are lotting the country. Somebody has to stop them. Otherwise these culprit politician will break the nation.
    However we have to condemn extremism as well. God Bless Pakistan.


  28. zeeshan on July 10th, 2008 @ 7:58 pm

    This country is going to drown quicker and there is only one way to stop it. Hang people like Mulla Adnan Siddiqi and Doctor the pig along with Zardari and Nawaz Sharif etc

    We desperately need our army back in the PM office :)


  29. IUnknown (iunknown) on July 11th, 2008 @ 7:10 pm

    @zeeshan. U better need army at ur home.

    We need to get rid of all corrupt politicians and Qadyanis and Shias first.
