KBCA and the Land Grabbing Contest

Witnessing myself the city being turned into a junkyard by KBCA+ leadership especially during and after 90s the city perfectly presents an orphaned child right now. Cowasjee article today (with a broken link in between, remove the space) and this one in JANG by Khalid Ansari is again an evident of the state of affairs. As if this city already had less issues to deal with now this latest menace.

Many people take KBCA related issues lightly and they don’t realize that it’s actually KBCA which seeds the first plant of destruction when it allows illegal constructions. With this come the issue of space, then the water electricity and gas and phone connections for that building/plaza, then the issue of digging roads and not filling em back. Then comes the issue of congestion in that area, and with it come illegal encroachments by pushcarts and then comes the issue of traffic in that area, suffocation and air-less space. This all makes that area a good ground for breeding of different diseases. Now imagine what this city has been turned into in last 25 years with such a huge scale of illegal (and sub standardized) constructions and occupations. Is there any hope of a reversal of all this to bring the old face back?

    Most KBCA officials are corrupt but even the honest ones don’t stand a chance against armed terrorist Mafia like MQM which is hell bent on ruining the city by encroaching hundreds of acres of public parks/amenity plots and play grounds all around Karachi and demarcating plots and distributing them among the families of those notorious MQMized terrorists(shuhadahs) that were wiped out during operation clean up,It also mentions about 175 MQM’s unit/sector offices(terror cells) illegally built inside public parks .

    This article also mentions that the violence involving a church that was in Christian colony in surjani town was actually planned,orchestrated and engineered by MQM’s criminal leadership so that they could blame Pashtuns and continue their Talibanization drama.

    @ d0ct0r

    While seeing your comments i have recalled a verse of Ghalib

    Har aik baat pai kaihtai ho k tu kiya hai
    Tum hi kaho kai yai undaz-e-guftugoo kiya hai

    Please get out of MQM fobia and be constructive it’s not a gentlemen approach to tonting someone at every point, sorry for speaking the hard words but we have to be civilised.

    @karachian I am not sure what to make of your comment but anyways here are some of the links mentioned in Cowasjee’s article exposing criminal gang MQM aka Land Mafia.

    @ karachian

    After reading your post it seems that you belong to a qualified family, your mentality is perfect in the sense that we are to be more constructive. But on the other hand d0ct0r’s mentality is totally different looks like he is a member of such political party who wants to break Pakistan his post and his links shows that.

    There are many links we found on you tube who were against different political parties so then we assume that the whole system of Pakistan is corrupt? And most of the videos are in favor of such political parties so what can we assume then?

    We all are well aware of the roll what media play in this situation. Most of the anchors of different private TV channels are taking money from the politicians just like the example is here at KMB with the name of d0ct0r who have so many names I dint know what basics he learn from his political party. By telling d0ct0r any thing positive is just like to cast pearl before swine. He even don’t understand what you write to him he just says “I am not sure what to make of your comment” that’s another example that how qualified he is.

    Faiza Ahmad,
    Writing things like parsi baba etc is not a good idea.

  9. بستنی (wasiq) on May 19th, 2009 @ 9:26 pm

    @Ms Ahmad….madame they are coming…..they are here…..there wont be an inch of vacant land up for grab(bing)….left in this city…..Ha Ha Ha…!

    These clowns unleashed by MQM’s Profesional Arsonist and Certified Extortionist(PACE) wing never cease to amaze me. Just like their absconding british pir,they start howling and yammering when ever their notorious Mafia gang MQM is publically exposed and humiliated.

    I am sure both(karachian,karachies) these knuckleheads haven’t even bothered reading the orginal articles and just rush to post their meaningless gibberish,just like those half brained MQMized dorks who go around faxing death threats from official numbers of MQM’s terrorist HQ NineZero Azizabad,

    if mqm was grabbing land as per….
    my dear faiz ahmed (NOT FAIZA) all of it not a mere assumption or accusation, those are real bitter facts. MQM have already encroached most of the Public Parks, Play grounds ,amenity plots and have built extensive illegal structures on all of them. This picture appeared in Dawn metropolitan pg 19 Dated 6 june 2008 shows these structure when they were under construction,I personally visited that area other day and most of the construction is complete and even some of families of notorious MQMized terrorists(Rehand Kana,Farooq Dada etc) gunned down during the operation cleanup have even moved in and are living there. If you still have any doubts then you can visit those areas and verify for your self.

    Its ironic that most of the areas where these MQMized terrorists are plundering and illegally encroaching parks and play grounds are claimed by them to be their strong holds.So basically these venomous terrorists are biting their own constituents just like they did on 9th april 2008 when these MQMized arsonist burnt down several muhajir men and women.It just shows the selfish mentality of that hypocrite absconding MQMized pir .

    BTW 175 illegal MQM’s unit offices are mentioned in that article. You just show me 5 LEGALLY built MQM unit offices in this city. Can you do that?

    Did any one else noticed the striking resemblance and similarity between Tamil rebel chief Prabakaran and our very own Absconding british MQMized chief Altaf. Terrorism based on ethnicity was the hallmark of Prabakaran,same is the case with MQMized pir Altaf.

    BUT the tamil chief went down fighting while our coward absconding MQMized grand terrorist Altaf fled to Britain and gives long distance sermons through his Polycom Speaker Phone in his typical demonic voice. And the chances are real slim that he’ll ever return back otherwise if citizens of Sri Lanka can jubilate and rejoice,then Karachiites also should keep their fingers crossed that one day they’ll similarly jubilate and rejoice.


  14. balma on May 20th, 2009 @ 10:09 am

    And Awab, I suppose you are James Bond look alike?

    Allama fasee wanted missiles to be seen only infront of namahram women folks

    And that incluse rocket launchers, mortars, tanks, cannons, all kind of water taps…all should be hidden under wraps…….wait till my kinda taliban rule this city…:)

  23. بستنی (wasiq) on May 22nd, 2009 @ 11:30 pm
