Pillion ride ban and Crime Rate

I am one of the guys strongly affected by pillion ride. The other day i was questinoning myself if the crime graph has lowered or not. Surprisingly that very day when i was going to my place from my work place and just for the record, Pillion ride ban was in place, I saw these two guys riding pillion robbing these other two guys who were also riding pillion on the road behind Mazar-e-Qaid.

I always wondered why people dont stop when they see someone being mugged!! That day I saw those guys being robbed and did nothing, i just stood there and watched the whole show, i was stunned by that shining piece of metal pushed against that guy.I think now the Government should unban pillion ride as it doesn’t affect increasing crime rate. What do you think?

People are becoming so frustrated by this that the other day i saw these two lads riding pillion, they were stopped by police. They tried to argue with the police. The aftermath… yes you are correct if you are thinking they were beaten up, i stood there and felt pity for the poor chaps, it was around 1:30 AM, near gulshan’s Ashfaq Memorial hospital. At that time they were calling their relatives.

    Sir, please don’t mind my saying so but you have in this post by mixing up 3 different issues created some confusion in my mind as to what is your real grievance.

    I think he is complaining why those two guys were calling their relatives on cell phones while beaing beaten by police for breaking the law which is no good anyway….haa’n!
    Poori qaum chay-vow ho gayee hae!

    basically, good or bad, if you break the law, you will be punished. though the police should have given tickets to these guys, not beat them up, but then the two guys shouldn’t have been arguing with police in the first place…..blah blah blah.

    Iam so totally against the motorized two wheelers….I demand their complete and unconditional ban within the city limits for six months.then I will decide if it affects the crime rate and the deaths by accidents

    @ all.

    from personal experience…..fasee improved his bike driving skill a hell lot more, when he had started driving a car…..only then i realised how the hell we torment the other public, by zigzaging, over taking, skiding, wheeling, damaging side mirrors or scrathes on car bodies, and fights after accidents.

    i hubmily belive it should be either banned, or stringent laws to enforce for others saftey and for god sake, there own saftey.

    in stupid conuntreies like paksitan, we see govt pushign them to wear helments,jisay is main un ka faida hu…and motorcyclsts moaning ke hai jee zulam hu raha hai..sali jahil qom

    Banned on pillion riding is not effective enough to control the crime rate in Karachi. I am a bit confused that why the sindh government is so afraid of pillion riding, maybe they think that the next suicidal attack will be because of pillion riding. Ohh Come on why this government is making us fool. What police and rangers are doing. Why they are not taking any action against the gang wars in lyari. They know better than any one that what is going on and what they have to do. Ohh yes they are making sure that everyone should obeys the new law of banned pillion riding, because they think this is the major plot of terror.

    This is to the government officials: Please stop making us fool, because banned on pillion riding is not the solution to reduce crime rate. We are aware of this but do you?
