Two leaders of Sindh are demanding Army take over....politicians,government protest

I think Tiger is now out of the woods...

Khatam ay Quran....

today after the prayer and taravee ....these small sized fruit cakes were distributed by the family or friends of a happy young hafiz who finished the thirteen days at his home in the neighborhood...he must have learned from somebody at the mosque.Most traders who have to open shops in Ramadan in the night arrange the taravee prayers at their homes for less number of days usually ten with 3 chapters(para) of quran recited everyday....whereas in the mosques its one chapter (para) per day...there are 30 chapters of quran and in the holy month of Ramadan unless the eid moon is not sighted on the 29th of the month...there are 29 certain nights...and on that 29th night the katam ay quran is done.some even finish on the 27th night because it is considered to be shab ay of the most holiest nights...and while praying and asking for what your heart desires from the appears to be better if you have finished the quran and done few other good this month when you spread your hands in front of the lord Almighty.
Anyways....the cake was fresh and very tasty....and it was from my favorite I congratulate the hafiz saab and thank and pray for the prosperity of the sponsors.Amen!

I will survive......

Indus delta....the place where it all ends....

After destroying homes and properties of millions of Pakistani's this is the place where this flood 2010 ends...The Indus Delta...about 105 km(65.3 miles) away from Karachi...some still fear that due to the high tide and full moon at the time when the most severe stream of flood water hits the delta...chances are that the sea could throw it back to the land....lets hope they are wrong....

@dOctOr saab….thankyou for this very informative report….thankGod they still don’t have started publishing their research on “wasiq1″
Allah ney bardee izzat diti hai….lol(a catch phrase used by a famous pakistani film,tv and stage actor...)
This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the RIC within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
sounds to me like they were expecting someone….lol
The MQM-A, which generally has not targeted Western interests, says that it supports the global campaign against terrorism
lo jee aa tee gal ee muk gaie….yeah toh sangi saathi nikley…lol
allegedly raises funds through extortion, narcotics smuggling, and other criminal activities. In addition, Mohajirs in Pakistan and overseas provide funds to the MQM-A through charitable foundations
my dear dOctOr saab….and to whom it may concern….here you are trying to make me cry over the cream on the sides of the box…when I am only interested in the whole cake….Karachi has three main non-political stakeholders as you may be aware….The memons,the chinotis and the punjabi sudagaran ay dehli….they were the almighty in karachi in 1984 and they are even more powerful today….no matter how badly the lord bashes the rest of Pakistan like in the current floods ….memons of karachi prospers.similarly when the wrath of the God befalleth upon the Europeans….the chinoti industrialists of karachi becomes richer….and the third PSAD of karachi prospers in every disaster anywhere in the world… you remember the Market capitalization in KSE before the earthquake in Pakistan….and see today….every year in Ramadan we have a very bearish market….very little trading….and see the trend this worst disaster week in the history of Pakistan……there is a desperate demand for textile,food and allied,building and construction,oil and petroleum….you name it and the memon of karachi have it….now Iam sure you would be getting bored because I am not mentioning your dear bhatta party….they have no industry in karachi, no trade, no commerce,no business sense….they are only the guinea pigs used by the vested interests….and they get paid for it….very few members of your bhatta party has their own homes….even the most popular leaders live in rented houses…including late mr raza haider mpa(god bless his soul)….and after the flood they will be the ones who will suffer the most here in karachi….because as the memons of karachi prospers due to the floods….the prices of property in karachi will be doubled…they are already way beyond the reach of the ordinary hardworking Muhajirs…..even an employee of a multinational cannot buy a modest flat after ten years of hard labor….anywhere in karachi….the government servants,armed forces and workers of private firms can only dream of having their own homes….in karachi.
MQM-A leader Hussein fled in 1992 to Britain, where he received asylum in 1999 (Jane’s 14 Feb 2003). The MQM-A is not on the U.S. State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations (U.S. DOS 23 May 2003).
Wake up dOctOr …..better read and learn to read a UN report before sending it to me….I am too good at this…..learned from THE BEST…;-P


11th Ramadan 1431....

Every one of you who know me from before my birth or since my aware that every year on this day we remember my grand father who died more than half a century ago on this karachi before my the fact is that I never got a chance to see my grand father or to learn anything from him.All I know about him is from what has been told to me by my family and especially my dearly departed Papa (God bless his soul) who loved his father more than I could ever love him.When Papa was alive this day used to be the most important day of the calender and of the holy month of Ramadan a gathering of family and friends for the iftar dinner and offering fateha was a must.come rain or shine...since papa's death almost three years ago...we still do offer the fateha...but very quietly with reverence lest zeal.
The most interesting thing about this death anniversary is that today the abandoned uncultivatable small piece of farm land in the banks of river indus near kotri owned by my grand father is in the worst flood with fears of a permenant damage to the kotri barrage and the drowning in flood water of the kotri city and villages all around.

And some refugee of this flood from sindh and khyber-pakhtunka are being graciously  settle in a camp near the unlivable residential society of my Papa which was already under a constant land-grabing threat...and other care taker issues...Now today I am thanking God that despite continuous pressures, classified of course,  from most major services and Airforces of British and common wealth countries ....I firmly skulked in the past decade and did not let the Americans name an unusable piece of land in my name....Only God knows what might be happening there today....Merci 

Nuclear Iran...? with or without the license to kill...!

Iran claims to have started its first nuclear reactor at bushehr with the help of Russia.Surprisingly Iran's arch nemesis the United States seems very calm and relaxed on this milestone for the first shite state...So does this means an end to decades old Iran hysteria or should I say Iran phobia...

The confusion about Jacobabad's Shahbaz it us or US ...?

The floods in Pakistan has no doubt washed away millions of houses,shops,roads and farms...but the most interesting thing this flood has done is that it once again brought the question of Jacobabad's Shahbaz airforce base being used by the americans or being an american airforce base....the two things seems very same right now since pakistan is in great desperation and the americans are being so gracious in helping Pakistan in whatever way it money ,essentials and a helping hand in the rescue and relief work....
A senior Govenment official was reported by the media informing the senate sub committee that Shahbaz  is under US control....which was very forcefully denied by the PAF spokesperson.
Sounds to me like the little girl whose caught with a hand is in a candy jar...looking up and saying "no i was not taking a candy from the jar..."
Now suppose this base is de-classified and allowed to put up a sign as a US bad it is for the PAF and Pakistan....
