This is stunning. So the people wont be able to see/know justice once again, it if comes true. Pakpoint has this article by Shahid Qureshi via London Post that ” Munaf Kalia might be killed in custody after a recent financial scandal according to a senior source in the security. Some one informed the family that Mr Kalia could be eliminated in government custody and presented as ‘suicide’. This leak could be linked to further pressurise the Memon business community but can be serious due to the involvement of high profile elite in the flight of capital from Pakistan.

The authenticity of this story is itself a question mark but we have a history of similar things happening in past. In any case, no matter what Munaf has/hasn’t done, he and JK should be given a fair chance.  At the end of the day no one knows what really happened. One more reason why we keep on saying, its all about JUSTICE FIRST. . . 


It is quite common in Pakistan that witnesses of the high profile cases have been eliminated for example witness of Murtaza Bhutto’s case Karachi Police’s inspector Haq Nawaz Sial was killed by unknown gunmen and more recently Chief Security officer of late Benzair Bhutto Khalid Shenshah was killed out his under construction house in Karachi.
But there are also reports that a secret deal with Mr Kalia has been struck and his arrest has served many purposes to score political points. It is the duty of the State Bank of Pakistan to demand the list of names of people who transferred money abroad urgently and release to the public.

Over 400 international transactions are linked with the MQM party whose international HQ is in London according to press reports. That made MQM circles very nervous and hasty announcement of Micro Finance Bank is also linked with Mr Kalia’s arrest according to sources.

There are rumours that Rehman Malik interior minister demanded a share in the investment of Mr Kalia abroad reportedly in Russia. Currently multi millionaire Rehman Malik was a junior officer in the labour protectorate department and then headed FIA before escaping from Pakistan during Nawaz Sharif government.

A senior security source confirmed that the real reason Mr Kalia’s arrest is related to transactions related to the top elite of the PPP government who reportedly transferred money after de-freezing of their assets resulted from the notorious NRO deal with the General Musharraf.

A close friend of Mr Kalia escaped from Pakistan and arrived in London recently. He feared for his life in Pakistan. ‘Mr Kalia and others should be given full chance to tell their side of their story in the court of law’, said a close friend.

    Because these guys are from Karachi.
    And, this brings me to another question: why are they being jailed and tried in Lahore? Kyaa Karachi may courts/jails nahi’n hai’n?

    @balma uncle one of their branch/franchise was busted in Punjab and then they were busted here in Karachi. They’ll have to face cases here as well as in punjab.

    Its related to Karachi because of involvement of mandate of karachi aka MQM’s grand terrorist ALtaf bai’s International Secretariat.

    Speculate, contemplate do whatever you can do to spread more hate – the rumor mongering machine, KMB is working overtime to do whatever it’s designed and programmed to do. Spread venom against Mohajirs, Mohajirs and only Mohajirs.

    MB – next time I will take pictures of your family and put it on web and then ask to people to speculate?

    I think KMB just crossed that fine line today! Sad, Sad…

    MB, I will make sure you come up with a proper evidence and name of your and Shahid Qureshi’s source. I will make sure!

    everyone knows that the dollar crisis came into being coz of the dirty work of ALL of the forex agencies… and i read somewhere that the other Forex traders ganged up to make Khanani and Kalia their escape goat… im begining to wonder that khanani and kalia are just a drop in the ocean… i just hope this guy doesnt die and is allowed to disclose to the public all the transactions made…ofcourse…as it has always been… the transactions of people in power will be omitted… but all the other transactions should be seen… lets see how the drama unfolds…

    So being a PTIian you keep on saying its about JUSTICE FIRST. So how you will get Justice in this country? From a crazy judge who brought down the whole country with him. Or from a non-party who just keeps on crying justice, justice but when it comes to Hudood Laws, its one and only MNA votes against repealing them.

    The fact of the matter is social injustice is a way of life in this country, from wadera to Khans ordinary, they all use the law of the jungle to rule the jungle. The only way to change the status quo is to make business / commerce thrive so that the middle classes grow stronger and a culture based on merit, talent and enterprise takes root. However, when you destabilize a country, capital takes flight, so does talent and its the middle class thats again abused and placed under the thumb of the exploiters. That sadly is the story of Pakistan.

    @hbrehman The same currency dealers were the conduit for the billions of dollars that flowed into Pakistan in the last eight years. The fact is my friend, money goes to places it feels safe and can multiply. But when it gets scared and makes its mind to take flight, it will find a way.

    Ahh…. what to say of others when the two greatest leaders of this country namely, Zardari and Nawaz Sharif dare not bring back billions of dollars of stolen Pakistan money….Oh I forgot to mention money does not like thieves but the judges do.

    @akc, why don’t you just leave KMB, when you think it’s designed and programmed to spread hatred and venom, such interruption in it’s function are considered as SPAM, go and create your own blog, i m sure your blog will get more hits than KMB (specialy from uk)

  10. hbrehman on December 5th, 2008 @ 7:16 pm

    @ kaami…. bro i agree with each and every word u just said…

  11. hbrehman on December 5th, 2008 @ 7:20 pm

  12. balma on December 5th, 2008 @ 7:57 pm

    Neem-Hakeem bhateejay, you sound like a quack when you bring up MQM in every thing. By the way please tell us if Altaf bhai farted today?

    I had said that this post is on KMB because these possibly fraud guys are based in Karachi. Please help me understand your logic (if any) in dragging your favorite party into it!

  13. barristerakc on December 5th, 2008 @ 8:26 pm

    cyrenity & all of the passer-e-zameen,

    Don`t accuse me of trying to spread hatred – it`s already there and people like you are the main reason. Weren`t you the same person who wrote about wanting to kill ALL Mohajirs stink and should be wiped out? Shame on you. Pakistan already has its Imus in you.

    Of course, reasonable people looking for solutions always offer choices, we need options and ultimatums. Unfortunately, many of the Paindoos here on KMB (with the notable exceptions of some), instead of trying to understand Mohajirs` real concerns, have embarked on a path of denial, justification of repression, outright abuse, racism, vulgarity, and allegations of Mohajir misdeeds dating back to Amir Khusru. :) Calling us Indian agents or RAW informers and traitors are not the path to reconciliation and future unity.

    You guys have taken a very jingoistic, “my side is always right“ attitude that leaves no room for compromise or reconciliation.Judging from the responses of Paindoos of Karachi here, I am rather pessimistic about a future in a common nation with these selfish and myopic people.

    Like I said somewhere on KMB before that I am enjoying these times because the only reason Punjabis are so much against MQM is because there is no more money flowing from Karachi to Lahore. There are no more Sharif`s to help them out. Finally Karachi is rebuilding. We will once again be one of the best cities of the world and of course Punjabi`s don`t like it. Who will call Lahore the “City of Gardens“ when Karachi has parks like Bagh-e-Ibn-e-Qasim. They dont want people to remember that Lahore was nothing but a culmination of Horse shit, Limka, and Red stone. Where will they get the money to build other cities of Punjab if Karachi actually starts giving back to its own people. Of course they cannot take money from Sialkoti Bahis or the other two provinces(who don`t have money themselves). After all, Karachi is the one generating the most money.

    As for the Talibanization of Karachi and constant denial of GoP and PPP.All this reminds me of Serb guardians of the concentration camps in Bosnia insisted that the prisoners never had it so good and that they were being treated extremely well – better than the Serbs` own paramilitary goons? When asked why some of the prisoners looked so hungry and that one could see their ribs poking out through their skins, the commander replied that some of these “Muslims are built that way in their physique – they are naturally tall, thin, and very lanky.“ They are so convincing when you soothe passions and tell humanity that there is no problem. They must be an auto mechanic, because that`s what they always say when one complains about noises or smells right after a repair job ? ?Just drive around for a while and the noise or smell will go away. ? :)

    As much as I hate KMB, I will be here to counter folks who spread venom againt us Mohajirs. And like I said earlier folks like MB will finally pay for there crimes and hate against Mohajirs.

  14. tzaidi on December 5th, 2008 @ 10:48 pm

    @ barristerakc: what you have written above is nothing less than a slap on KMB paindoo goons. You are right that time will come when they have pay for their hate mongering – all of their writings on KMB will serve as evidence to their crimes. I will wait for that day.

    Now coming back to the topic of this post, please go through the news article from daily times ( Khanani and Kalia were involved in ‘Hawala’ business.

    Hawala, in simple terms, is a parallel banking system which is life line to underground economy. Hawala is a paper less business therefore does not leave any paper trail as evidence. This is the reason terrorist and narcotics dealers use this Hawala system to transfer funds across the border without getting noticed.

    If Khanani & Kalia are involved in this business and government has recovered coded transactions data which presumably are related to Hawala transaction, then funding to any terrorist organization or narcotics operation can not be ruled out. So my friends, I don’t think these hawaldars will be out soon. Of course, unless they give 10% to the currently most powerful man in the country – am sue you all know who am pointing at?

    @Dogtor: involving MQM in Khanai & Kalia’s money laundering operation – shows thinking capabilities of you peanut size brain : )
    If MQM used Hawala system for transferring their fund then most probably the state bank of Pakistan would have never come to know about it, since these transactions never pass through the conventional banking system.
    Again, I am unable to understand your point on announcement by MQM to open micro finance bank with Khanani & Kalia’s money laundering operation – whats the link – will you please EXPLAIN!!! And please no more ‘ummat’ references.

  15. d0ct0r on December 5th, 2008 @ 10:49 pm

    @Balma Uncle i think you didn’t read the whole blog post,I didn’t dragged ‘my favorite party’ into anything.This Blog post already linked this scandal with Altaf’s international Secretariat from where he regularly entertains us with his demonic venom filled telephonic speeches.

    barristerakc on December 5th, 2008 @ 8:26 pm

    British cheerleader barrister’s gibberish sounds just like his absconding British Quaid..

    Yea Karachi actually starts giving back to its own people

    Areas infested with MQM’s unit and Sector goons are the ones witnessing massive surge in illegal encroachments of public parks and playgrounds,ironically these areas are the ones in which most of the ‘mandate of karachi’ aka MQM’s voters reside,so basically they’re backstabbing their supporters by usurping those parks and green areas which would have otherwise been used by their supporters. . DOZENS of parks and large chunks of lands have been encroached and plots have been demarcated and handed over to MQM goons. Interesting thing is that encroachment of green areas are rampant in areas infested with MQM’s unit offices( in more than 40 parks in North Nazimabad Town alone, Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s sector and unit offices have been constructed ).

  16. tzaidi on December 5th, 2008 @ 11:06 pm

    @dogtor: can you please list the name of projects / parks occupied by MQM?

    Please make sure that you list all 40 parks, etc. otherwise you will proved as ‘JHOOTA’ again, remember you said something on plight of father of an MQM worker!!!!

  17. tzaidi on December 5th, 2008 @ 11:11 pm

    am waiting dogtor!!!!!

  18. d0ct0r on December 5th, 2008 @ 11:48 pm

    @tzaidi i quoted from the article that i linked seems like you didn’t bothered clicking or reading.. forget 40 just upload pics of only 4 MQM’s Sector/Unit offices which are NOT built illegally on encroached park/plot.

  19. karachi4eva on December 6th, 2008 @ 4:26 am

    @cyrenity : so talking fact and standing up for your people is "spreading hatred" to you? just look at your self first before you accuse someone.

  20. karachi4eva on December 6th, 2008 @ 4:41 am

    @ dogtor: link from a punjabi run magazine proves nothing! just look at their website and you’ll find "no record found" under most sections…

    P.S. get a life and do something more productive other than writing long ass essays with made up links and references full of hatred against mohajirs.

  21. barristerakc on December 6th, 2008 @ 12:02 pm

    Great! the already frustrated get more frustrated and on a deletion rampage….

    Acha point is that they ignore comments like, “Sir Syed Ahmed Khan was a traitor”, “Mohajirs should go back”, “MQM should be wiped out” , “Mohajirs are RAW agents”…..LOL – selective hypocrisy..LOL.


    For many ignorant and self-deluding people, it is easier to complain about other peoples’ receding hairlines than to comment about the hideous faces they see in the mirror. :)

  22. tzaidi on December 8th, 2008 @ 3:28 am

    Oye dogtor!!!
    get me some respectable source …. you are quoting a magzine which notmany people even heard of.

    am still waiting ……………………. Jhotay kaheen kay :)

  23. d0ct0r on December 9th, 2008 @ 9:11 am

    @Khi It doesn’t matter if its hindi,punjabi,irani or Altafi magazine,what matters is whats written in that magazine.Seems like Tzaidi is having trouble finding LEGALLY built MQM’s unit/sector office in North Nazimabad. Maybe you should give him a helping hand and help him find just 4 of these offices which are NOT built on illegally encroached park/land/plot.I don’t really mind waiting but i hope you won’t keep me waiting for ever..

  24. d0ct0r on December 9th, 2008 @ 9:32 am

    @Mr T you seriously expect any MQM inspired or a Karachi based magazine to write all that? Every one is well aware MQM’s brutal and voilent tactic to intimidate and threaten journalists and mediamen, MQM sends bullet filled envelope and faxes death threats from MQM’s terrorist headquarter Nine Zero to any one who exposes them, Cuts off TV cables to take off air those channels which are involved in exposing MQM’s terrorism and guns down and burns those who don’t toe to its line.. and "Not many have even heard of" is a very lame argument. Before MQM’s ‘world 2nd best fraudster episode not many here had even heard of Foreign Policy Magazine but thanks to Altaf and his fraud claim of 2nd best fraudster(with hundreds of banners advertising it) every one now is aware of that magazine even in Lallu keht.
