Reports of Unrest Late Night In The City.

 There are reports of heavy exchange of firing between two groups at Soharaab Goth and a bomb blast on a pushcart near Bakra Mundi. Reports of unrest and violence in different parts of the city. Shops and markets are reported to have been closed in Aziz Abad, Gulburg, parts of Gulshan-e-Iqbal (near Abul Hasan Asphani Road) are reported to have been closed earlier then usual. While since 12:30 am we have been hearing heavy firing with intervals coming from a distance here in Gulshan-e-Iqbal.

What’s surprises me is that none of the local news channels are reporting any of it.

    Senior Police officials and investigating agencies have compiled a list of terrorists involved in ethnic violence and terrorism. Majority of them belong to MQM’s unit/sector terror cells . Police officials plan to take action against these terrorist who are trying to stir ethnic violence under the pretext of talibanization .

    As was predicted in this story 14 SHOs have been changed to deal with the terrorists.

    How do you know that 14 SHOS have been changed?

    In my opinion, not all pathans are bad, but there is an overwhelming majority which is being talbinized and has been turned in hate mongers, they hate everyone except for themselves and alike.

    See, to understand the issue you need to go back in time, when during soviet invasion an army of civilian Pakistanis (with majority of Pathans being in close proximity of conflict zone) was raised. This task was performed by mullahs and political mullahs in name of JIHAD. But these mullahs were well paid by government of Pakistan, UAE & Saudi and CIA to perform these tasks, ever wonder why Maulana Sami Ul Haq, Fazal ul Haq, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, or their sons never went on JIHAD!!!!! Coz, they were busy recruiting and earning money.

    Now Soviet war is over, Afghanistan is back into political mayhem and CIA and Pakistani government are not helping mullahs. These religious cronies don’t have any other skill, the only thing they know is gun battle because that’s exactly where they were earning bread for their families. No wonder, they tried to impose self rule / other their own writ in Bajur, Banu and Wazirstan to create a safe heaven for self and alike. This was a challenge to sovereignty of Pakistan, therefore a military action was undertaken, as a result these war mongers instead of fighting, started escaping to different areas of Pakistan and what could be better place to hide then super highway exit in Karachi. They will be having a large number of unregistered population around them, its right next to main transportation route, its in middle of an industrial area, any disturbance created by them will not go un-noticed.

    MQM understands these war mongers, that is why they started ringing the bell from the time when the military action in tribal areas started getting into momentum. That was not a normal call, if you want to save yourself and your family from these vultures then all karachites need to be united against them (minus Doctor, who of course will never understand).

    Getting yourself armed or not that’s not the question? The question is how you keep your young from getting brain washed by these mullahs and keep the karachite way of life – – – alive!!!

    celebrating thanksgiving is a personal affair – I think you should not interfere

  8. zeeshan on November 30th, 2008 @ 2:54 am

    tzaidi: What’s even more alarming is that these Mullas are getting heavily paid by Indians. They are creating even more panic and will cause major problem if they are not checked already. We can NOT allow extremists to settle here in our city or we won’t have any place to go.

    Hey, I am just curious what is the point of observing Thanksgiving in Pakistan? Why do Pakistanis living in Pakistan care about English Al-Qaida types arriving on the shores of North America to establish their religeous fanatic colonies?
    reaaaaalllllly…what? Is 4th of July the next thing Pakistanis will observe in Pakistan as a national holiday?

  10. barristerakc on November 30th, 2008 @ 12:23 pm

    Excellent post tzaidi Sahib…

    We should all remember how these militants targeted,

    Doctors of a certain sect and targeted and killed people because of the sectarian affiliations.

    Lashker-e-Jhungvi were basically all Punjabis and Pashtuns – so was Sip-e-Sahaba.These people are now hiding in Pashtuns areas of Karachi ….

  11. barristerakc on November 30th, 2008 @ 12:27 pm

    @balma, I have an American gori bhabi and some friends from US who wants fun and some sense of normalcy in life – btw, I organize holi-nights / dewali nights too – you can pop in if you want :) what’s wrong in celebrating anything bob?

    Yes, 4th of July is celebrated at American Embassy – apparently, mostly it’s a binge drinking competition here – no bands and parades….!!!!

    Atleast I will not be a part of these ill-mind people.They have been playing with their dirty tricks in the past and even now they are victimising people of karachi.Islam is a religion of peace instead of that they are forcing Islam.They are using the name of Islam to keep on breeding their families as usual but now is the time to stand agaisnt them and be united.
    They have brought indian agenda in Pakistan which is to destabilize Pakistan as Karachi is the heart of Pakistan.Government should take some serious steps against these VULTURES,hiding behind their women,children and Islam and kidnapping and harassing the innocent lives of karachi.

    and who are these people killing innocent Mohajir Men on Sohrab Goth ?

  14. khaled90 on December 5th, 2008 @ 1:35 am

    @ Barrister

    Well all of this Mohajir suffering is NOT equal to suffering of fews Chaye walas,

    If someone kick them out from then the Rape Torture and Murder of Mohajirs becomes legal.
    The soo called urdu speaks who are getting itched by torching of few thellas are not even aware of what is going on, on abul hassan isphani road where about 10 projects(Flats) have been occupied and residents 99% urdu speaks are thrown out of their properties by Pathans.

    These Pathans are ONE, even they are in any political party they are working as ONE under Pakhtoon Action Committee even the Pathans in soo called tehreek e Insaaf are working under that Pakhtoon Action Committee or Loya Jirga.

    The so called urdu speaks who are itched forgot what these pathans are doing on daily basis on banaras quaidabad and on sohrab goth where torturing of people wearing pants and behaving with mohajir women including rapes are becomes daily routine.

    These sick so called Mohajirs also forgot that what these pathans did on 27,28,29 2008, at that time no thella was torched and no one forced to vacate their chaye khanas but still they were looting torturing and raping mohajirs.

    Karachi is become Hell for Mohajirs as the snakes inside Mohajirs are dividing Mohajirs, They are criticizing mohajirs for doing little things but failed to raise any single voice over Murder torture and rapes of innocent Mohajir Women and Men.

    All this has been started with Brut force after sindh high court gave the decision against the Rikhshaws, such decision was imposed in punjab but no hue and cries but when come to karachi it becomes ETHNIC Problem.

    The people of Karachi specially Mohajirs should understand about what is going on, If Pathans can unite on one platform regardless of their political affiliation, why not Mohajirs ??

  15. Karachi without pathans (pingback) on December 15th, 2008 @ 4:08 pm

    […] of Talibanization started by Altaf and Co is getting worst day by day. Yesterday it was not a good day in most of areas in Karachi due to clash between pathans(MQM’s talibans) and MQM. Earlier […]

    Taliban in Pakistan can’t be called even humans.
