    Thank God, now karachi has become a peaceful city. The city of this people have face many problems in the past. Anyways, i am searching about citizen watches and move to this site which is also interesting. Technology has made our life completely changed. Once there was a time when we have to go to market for getting things but now the world has changed. Now everything is available on our doorstep just due to the technology. Even now few companies have introduced such smart edifice watches which observe the body fitness level and inform us before facing any health related issue. On the sites of virtual sites you can often find the column “Advantages of an online store”, which indicates that goods are subject to return, as well as in ordinary shopping complexes. Most often, the buyer can really give up low-quality products and get their money back. However, there are several nuances: If the goods were delivered,then the seller may declare that the item was damaged, precisely at the post office. In this case, it will be extremely difficult to find the guilty, since this service does not insure the purchase. First you have to wait for delivery, then send a request for a refund and get a response from the seller. In the end, a decent period of time may pass from the moment of purchase to the receipt of money back. Summing up Of course, making purchases without leaving your apartment is very convenient. But this should be done very carefully. It is better to give preference to online stores of famous brands, whose outlets are in every city. Anyways, appreciative efforts that you have made to share the nice piece of stuff with us.

    It might be too late to respond now but I am not a regular blogger and totally forgot about this. I was reading this article about MQM and thought to revisit this page to see if anyone had responded to my comments. revolt-to-redemption/

    Its a balanced one and I would suggest everyone to read it.

    Now coming to the points you raised.

    I can write a book in response to your comments but I really dont have time and I dont think that you will agree with me just as I dont agree with you.

    I have answers to each and every point you have raised but my questions in the earlier comment are still unanswered.

    Why dont you respect the opinion of 85% of Karachiites? MQM won 17 out of 20 NA seats from khi.

    And none of your justifications satisfy me. Infact it just reiterates my point about the heavy bias that I mentioned earlier.

    just a few bullet point answers/corrections

    – Farooq Sattar’s Mayorship – can provide a list of development work (e.g the karachi cirular railway and the foundation work for a mass transit system)

    – people paid that price to PPP, PML(N) and the establishment for starting a truly people’s movement threatening the powerful establishment and feudals, not to MQM

    – MQM was not in control during the 90’s, PPP and PML(N) were

    – karachi is the blood line of the country but people are only interested in the revenue it generates and dont want to respect Karaciites opinion

    – I can write a much longer list of stories about other parts of Pakistan and I can still assure you that Karachi is in a much better shape than these places. I am in Karachi these days and it is a true pleasure to see the city flourishing.

    – death toll in the tribal conflicts in FATA is much higher, why not talk about them?

    – ANP and pathans say “hathyar hamara zewar hai” meaning weapons are our ornaments, why not deweaponise NWFP?

    – I have spent 25 years in Karachi but never experienced bhatta collection from any MQM member

    I know that you can come up with another response and we can carry on like this forever but my point is that we all believe in democracy so let us elect our representatives and leave others to elect theirs.

    If people elect MQM and they are happy with their work for the poor and middle class then let them do their job.

    Democracy means something!!!

    Dear Mansoor I highly respect your opinion and your view about Mustafa Kamal, it is out of question to deny the fact that great work is done by CDG Karachi under Mustafa Kamal mayor ship but let me remind you that it is not the first time MQM is in the Government and Mustafa Kamal is not first MQM mayor of Karachi before him Dr. Farooq Sattar was mayor of Karachi for four and half years, and during last 20 years MQM had 90% elected councilors and nazims in the city. Questions : What great work was done by MQM during these years ? What price people of Karachi has to pay for these bridges and roads, have you ever wondered? Do you think that these developments worth so many innocent lives and so much destruction Karachite has faced

    This is very true that PPP has not done anything to Larkana or even Liyari which is constituency of Bhuttos since decades. But MQM also in total control of the city since last 20 odd years and these developments were only started after people started appreciating Naimat ulla khan work in Karachi.
    I have seen these bridges and underpasses in Lahore 10 years ago whcih are constructed in karachi now or constructed in other underdeveloped countries but they dont had to pay that price which we paid to MQM.

    Why people make such a hue and cry when it comes to Karachi and MQM, the reason is Karachi is a back bone and blood supply line to the country, it can be said that if Karachi is stable the country is stable, and also that it is densely populated with people from all over Pakistan and if a person from any other province is get killed, specially in ethnic violence, his dead body send negative feelings to other part of the country.

    Well, I wasn’t expecting such a prompt reply.

    With regards to MQM ruining Karachi, I witnessed it myself when I visited my hometown last year that whether it was in ruins or flourishing under Mustafa Kamal for whom I have utmost respect for the work he has done, but my guess is that you would disagree with it and this a classic example of difference of opinion but then the vast majority of Karachi’s citizens appreciate MQM’s work and agree with me by electing MQM’s nominated candidates then why don’t people find the courage within themselves to respect others’ opinion?

    And why don’t people lash out at PPP for not doing anything for Larkana? which as far as I am aware is actually in ruins and PPP is in control there.

    Or at PML for letting that poor guy suffer in Punjab who was chained with a chaudhry’s cattle at his mansion. You must have seen that news yesterday on ARY One World. PML is in control there.

    I can assure you that Karachi is in much better shape than these places.

    And yes I am guilty of hiding a crime but whom should I disclose it to? the said people were in close contact with their respective law enforcement agencies. They can’t think of messing with those highly influential personalities with strong political affiliations.



    “No matter what happens in Karachi MQM is blamed by default. Why?”


    ” Lahore where my own friends proudly tell me about how they used their amunition against their rivals and on basant? Why?”
