This scene was captured by cameraman bnesss, when his car was stopped next to this rickshaw on a Karachi traffic light.

Besides noting the obvious dirty feet, also note the expression on rickshaw driver’s face.

    I agree with ZIA we treat our animals in a very inhumane way.

    Also thats why we need to eat at home because you don’t know what goes on behind close doors in restaurants.

    I think nail fungus on that Chicken looks yummy. Its brings the flavor out in Karahi Chicken :)

    Also most naan wale kned their dough with their feet. This way you don’t have to add salt in the ATTA.

    I saw it myself a bhelpuri indian restaurant.

    hhmmmmmmm, very interesting, thank God, we in
    Europe have choice, we can have excellent chicken,
    naturally fed, without any suspected ingredients, it
    has indeed a different taste, but unfortunately we also
    have, what we call, ” battery” chicken and its nothing.

    Unfortunately lack of sanitation, food poisoning and food borne diseases are not a funny issue in Pakistan, does anybody here remember, last year in Faisalabad an outbreak sickened more than 600 people and killed several….and yes, the West is not clear from guilt as we can see (granted their last case involved dog food tainted in China, not exactly the same thing)….

    In the States because of the huge producers distributing to millions the possibilities of an outbreak are much more serious. The chances are *somewhat* less, but horror stories are everwhere not just in the third world.

    People’s immune systems mostly just learn how to handle it. It looks so terrible, but a waiter in a restaurant in the States told me he saw a cook drop a steak, look around, quickly pick it up and slap it back on the plate….

    What you don’t know won’t hurt you, I guess.

    BTW, I think people remember the taste of chicken and eggs from Pakistan as better because the chickens are mostly not yet raised in the “sterile” factory venue on the processed grain. Chicken and egg yolks in Pakistan have a yellow or orange tint that comes from scratching and eating insects and vegetable matter. This is actually better. The reason chicken in the States doesn’t have this is the following;

    In States the “cake” from the floor of the broiler houses (yes, it’s you know what) is collected, pelletized, some chemical nutrients are added, and the pellets are fed back to the next batch of chickens. It’s also fed to cattle, and this ends up in your milk. It’s got antibiotics and hormones both. Another reason to do business with your halal butcher. He’s probably contracted with a local farmer who doesn’t follow these practices.

    Now after knowing this, does the pic above look so bad?
