The nation is still mourning what it is dubbed as the bloodiest state-sponsored violence in Karachi on May 12, the day when Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudry was supposed to address a Sindh High Court Bar’s ceremony in connection the golden jubilee of Sindh High Court.

It, nevertheless, was expected that there could be some physical confrontation between the workers of rival parties as Muttehida Quami Movement, the major coalition partner in Sindh, had announced a counter rally, which, itself was a bizarre incident in the political history.

But, no one expected that there would be no government and law in Karachi on May 12. Erecting containers, vehicles, tankers and other barricades in an apparent bid to prevent the opposition activists and lawyers to proceed to the airport to welcome the chief justice blocked almost the city roads.

Armed supporters of MQM blocked Sharae Faisal, the city’s busiest road and the route where the chief justice was supposed to travel. They were firing on every moving thing, including ambulances. The law enforcing agencies were already disarmed so that they could not interfere in MQM’s business.

The most worrying and pinching aspect of May 12 carnage is that the issue is no more of a political nature. It has assumed ethnic proportions as, according to media reports, various people were gunned down after being identified as Pushtuns by the armed terrorists. Even, a Pushtun driver of Edhi ambulance, who were carrying an injured worker of Awami National Party to the hospital, was intercepted by the armed persons, and shot dead in broad day light.

Here are some questions
1) Was this a calculated conspiracy to resort to ethnic clashes in Karachi?
2) Where does MQM stand now? Was this all made to happen because a huge rally in favor of the chief justice would decide that Karachi is not a MQM’s city as it claims ?
3) Was MQM’s announcement of a counter rally on the same day in line with democratic norms?
4) Who should be really held responsible for May 12 massacre?

Biggest political party(Pakistan army).

Biggest political party of Pakistan i.e.Pakistan army is responsible for this massacre of its citizens,which is not surprising seeing their history ,which province is safe from their adventurism,be it E.Pakistan,NWFP,SIndh,or Baluchistan.Unfortuantely this may not stop until the party's candidate wins.

Very Sad

It was very unfortunate with us that whenever political situation arise in our country the ruling party and opposition always try to show their power on the roads and there is no law and order situation on the country due dishonesty and bribes in police and other government departments.
Sind Government is responsible for this killing in the sense why they allow MQM to hold rallies and why they allow chief Justice Choudhary Sahib to come to Karachi and attend the Bar Council meeting. All opposition parties are presently busy to create problems for government and public as well.
I suggest not to allow any rallies and impose strict section 144 immediately throuhgout Pakistan to save the country from internal ethnic problem and international problems as well. If we fight ourself how we are going to save our country to face the challgenes we forsee a head as Muslim Estate.

Extradite Altaf Hussain

There's no doubt that MQM was responsible for the terrorist activities on that day in Karachi. With that the MQM party should be banned and its members who have a history of committing crime should be arrested and brought to justice. As for Altaf Hussain he should be extradited to Pakistan and face charges of murder and treason for the crimes he has been committing against the state of Pakistan. My question is why our country and the constitution are allowing these people to run politics from foreign soil? Can you name me one civilized nation where their party leaders are in self exile and are running the affairs of the country from abroad? This also goes for BB and Nawaz they should not be allowed to have any political affiliations with their party or the government if they decide to leave their home country for any reason beyond 3 months. Our country is in turmoil because the constitution is written in such a way that it only benefits selected individuals. There is no oversight and its laws are rarely followed. I’ll be honest I have never read the 1973 constitution in full details nor the 2002 constitution, however, it would be safe to assume that neither of the constitutions are effective and or offer complete and transparent oversight, because looking back at the history of Pakistan it is clear that there are a lot of loopholes that needs to be looked at. The entire opposition is claiming on restoring the 1973 constitution when they know that it has just as many flaws as the 2002 version. I am a firm believer that if the ordinary citizen were to come out on the streets of Pakistan without any political party affiliation and they just fight for their basic rights and for the elimination of corruption without regards to ethnic backgrounds but only as a common citizen and a Pakistani; then all these leaders and politicians will either fold, be eliminated, or disappear from Pakistan forever. However, it’s wishful thinking because the people are so divided among party flags that they would rather die with false ideas for their party leader who are using them to fulfill their agendas rather than eliminate these.

Shame for us all

I COMMISERATE WITH THE RELATIVES OF THOSE INNOCENTS WHO GOT KILLED.IT IS SHAME FOR THE WHOLE NATION AT THE TIME WHEN WE NEED PEACE AND HARMONY WITHIN THE NATION AND AT BORDERS.

POLITICAL LEADERS MAY BE LABELLED WITH SOME BLAME. BUT, MORE BLAME GOES ON THE GOVERNMENT AS THEY HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF KEEPING LAW AND ORDER IN THE COUNTRY AND THEY HAVE THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE AT THEIR DISPOSAL.

ALLAH SAVE PAKISTAN.SOME BODY IS GOING TO MAKE HERO OUT OF ALTAF HUSSAIN,WHO HAS ATTENDED HIGH LEVEL SEMINARS WITH INDIAN GOVERNMENT AND TALKED THERE AGAINST EVEN CREATION OF PAKISTAN.HERE IN PAKISTAN, HE NEVER EVEN SHOWS UP.

THIS MAN WAS PRAISING NATWAR SINGH AS "NOT WAR SINGH", AS HE TALKED IN INDIA SPONSORED SEMINARS AND TALKED IN INDIA AGAINST THE VERY CREATION OF PAKISTAN.

MANY IF NOT MOST MQM PEOPLE IN CANADA THINK THEMSELVES INDIANS RATHER THAN PAKISTANIS.

IT IS AWEFULLY SAD ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN KARACHI.AND IT IS SHAME TO READ IN THE PRESS ABOUT THE RULING PARTY CELEBRATING AND DANCING WHEN THE COMMERCIAL HEART OF PAKISTAN BURNED.

THIS WAS LIKE NERO PLAYING FLUTE WHEN ROME BURNED.

THERE IS NO ROOM FOR REVENGE AS IT WILL HURT THE NATION MORE. IT IS TIME TO TO FEEL REMORSE AND MAKE AMENDS AS WE ARE ALL SAME PEOPLE. WE MUST LIVE TO LISTEN AND HELP OTHERS FELLOW COUNTRYMEN RATHER THAN KILLING THEM.

IT IS A LESSON FOR ALL POLITICAL PARTIES THAT THEY SHOULD BE PREPARED TO CHANGE, REARRANGE AND ALTER THE TIMING OF THEIR DEMOCRATIC EXPRESSIONS AS MUSHARRAF HAD CLEARLY WARNED OF CRUSHING ANY THING GOING NOT HIS WAYS.

PAKISTAN HAS JOINED A SELECT CLUB OF TWO OR THREE COUNTRIES OF ABSOLUTE POWER NATIONS, WHERE MILITARY WAYS ARE FREELY ADMIXING THE CIVILIAN WAYS. AND THE NATION'S PEOPLE AS A WHOLE IS CORRUPT AND CROOK AS WELL.BUT THAT DOES'NT MEAN THAT THEY HAVE TO DIE.

THE COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE ARE EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL AND THEY ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND DELIGHTFULLY LIVABLE.

PAKISTAN STILL IS A GREAT STRESS RELIEF TO VISIT AND LIVE THERE RELAXED FROM THE OTHER MORE SERIOUS STRESSES OF THE WEST.GOING FROM WEST, IT IS VERY CHEAP WHEN YOU SPEND DOLLARS THERE.

THE COMMON MAN OF PAKISTAN IS WONDERFULLY SWEET.

WE REQUEST THAT THE PEOPLE WITH RESPONSIBILITY OF GOVERNING AND WITH RESOURCES OF PEACE KEEPING AVAILABLE TO THEM CAN PLEASE USE THOSE RESOURCES FOR THE SAFETY OF PEOPLE.

I WOULD REQUEST ALTAF HUSSAIN OF MQM THAT HE KINDLY TALK GOOD ABOUT PAKISTAN WHEN HE GOES TO INDIA. THE POLITICAL LEADERS ARE REQUESTED THAT THEY PLEASE LEARN TO GIVE IN THE MOST AS MILITARY RIGOURS AND DISCIPLINES CAN BE VERY BRUTAL AND MURDEROUS AND LETHAL AS THEY ARE DRILLED TO WAR LIKE MODES AS DAILY ROUTINES AND THINKING IN BARRACKS.

AS BARRACKS CONTROL THE WAY OF LIFE IN PAKISTAN NOW, THE CIVILIAN POLITICIANS WILL HAVE TO SHOW BETTER WISDOM, RESILIENCE AND PROPENSITY TO AVOID SITUATIONS WHERE THERE CAN BE LOSS OF INNOCENT LIVES.

LOSS OF ANY LIFE IN PAKISTAN IS THE LOSS OF PEOPLE OF THE SAME NATION.WE COMMISERATE WITH ALL WHO GOT KILLED AND MORE SO WITH BENAZIR BHUTTO AND HER PARTY WHO LOST MOST BESIDES THE INNOCENT BY STANDERS.

I THINK THE SITUATION OF MILITARY CIVILIAN ADMIX IN PAKISTAN IS GOING TO CHANGE SOMEWHAT AFTER 18 MONTHS WHEN BUSH LEAVES OFFICE.THOSE FEELING AND BRAGGING ABOUT ABSOLUTE POWER WILL HAVE MUCH OF THEIR FEATHERS CLIPPED.

BUT, THEN THERE CAN BE LOTS OF BALANCING ACTS THROUGH POLITICAL HORSE TRADING.

THEY CAN DO AND FEEL WHATEVER THEY LIKE. BUT, PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THAT THE CIVILIZED WORLD EXPECTS THE USE AND UTILIZATION OF NATION'S PEACE KEEPING RESOURCES IN TIMES OF DIRE NEEDS.

AND EVERY BODY RELATED TO POLITICAL ASPIRATIONS WILL HAVE TO LEARN TO GIVE IN MORE OR MOST FOR THE SAKE OF INTERNAL PEACE AND SAFEGUARDS OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS.

WHEN YOU ARE SURE THAT IT IS BECOMING LAW OF THE JUNGLE, THE WEAKER WISE BETTER HIDE TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT LIVES.

AND THE INNOCENTS ONES BETTER LEARN TO STAY AT HOME AS THE ROBBERS ARE THE ONLY ONE TO GET YOU.

AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF ROBBERS THERE AS WELL WHO ARE DOING THEIR JOB AND INTRUSIONS AT WILL AND WISH AS WELL AS NO BODY BOTHERS TO USE THE RELATED AVAILABLE RESOURCES AS WELL TO MITIGATE THEM.

Violence in Karachi

First of all my heart goes to the families of the people killed. May God bless the souls of the dead and give power to the families to bear the loss. No one is responsible for this carnige than Musharaf him self and his MQM people. Hoe can a President try to stop a chief justice to talk just because he is afraid chief justice might have some thing against musharaf govt. Its really a shame when a country like Pakistan is moving back ward in the hands of Goons. If Mr. Musharf had any heart he will resign and let the Supreme court do a faie inquiry into the matter.
MQM should be banned by the public by voting against them. There is no power greater than voting. Public needs to show the government and MQM who is incharge. All pakistani who are elidgble to vote need to register and vote for the sake of their future and there kids and grand kids sake. Violence is not going to solve the problem but voting will. There is no bigger power than all citizens of Pakistan to show these unrully people the power of Public. There is a certain trust in the government by the people if that trust is lost government needs to fold and move on to next government which is chosen by the citizens of Pakistan.

"Lucifer the great" of Karachi

Katmal Altaf is a hard cove terrorist, he is responsible for the poor Pakistanis massacre. The British Government must extradite him if the UK believe in War against Terror for real!!!

AFTAB ALAM ADVOCATE (HIGH COURT), Pakistan - 17 May, 2007

hoping for the best

It is not more shameful for somebody to claim something and doing otherwise.

Today,Musharraf is supporting the war against terror", showing the whole world that he is on the side of the democratic forces.

A responsibility of protecting people from any act of terrorism done by anyone living in his country,.

Yet,on the hand he is giving complete freedom to those who are on his side to get away with killing innocent people.

It makes the "war on terrorism look so fake and artificial.A group of exploiters are on the verge of destroying all the peace on the planet.

when you teach others the western values of democracy,you have to understand it as well.

Democracy has four pillars. The Reign of the Constitution and the Rule of Law,strong parliament,independent judiciary,independent media.Nothing is left safe in pakistan.It is not surprising that people are calling it a failed state.

A year ago the punjab cheif minister pervez elahi said the crimes happening in Lahore are no surprise to me because i know MQM has opened their offices here in lahore.

Army makes these militant groups to terrify people and then it goes out of their own control.

Pakistan's monarch political parties

I think Benazir and N.Sharif are to be blamed for these killings. First they politicised a legal issue and than started violent protests all over the country, disrupting normal life and damaging private and public property.
Certainly, majority of Pakistanis suffered from this kiosk and never supported it.
In smaller cities mob manage to over come the hijacking the populace but in city like Karachi, this was destined to happen.
Aitizaz (lawyer of CJ) is in full charge of the events and is only buying time for Benazir to negotiate her return to power. While Nawaz in his ignorance is being used as tool.
Pakistan's politcal parties are can be termed any thing but democratic. They resemble more to feudal and moarch system.
They left Pakistan when they saw it sinking and now the shining economy and foreign exchange reserves are tempting them to come back and take away there share.

KS, Pakistan - 18 May, 2007

Musharraf & MQM are responsibile for the Karachi incident

Since the current situation began regarding the CJ suspension the hon. CJ has made many visit's to different towns & cities of pakistan, notabley the visit to Lahore and all of these happend without any incident but when the CJ was to visit Karachi than Musharraf and his party decide to hold a rally in Islamabad and the pro-dictator party MQM decides to stage one in Karachi on the same day hence causing the fatal incident that occured.

Why did man who says he has the support of the masses in the country need to show off his support, is it because he sees now clearly that he is but a dictator in power with the backing of the top military brass and not the people for they have been comming out in thier thousands to support the CJ which shows that the final nail in the coffin of this dictator has been nailed and now he is trying to save his own skin in manner which is illeagal & unconstitunal because a President and COAS are not allowed to take part in politics.

J. AKRAM, United Arab Emirates - 18 May, 2007

General Zia's protege?

Picked from the streets of NY
by General Zia ul Haq in DEC
1982.To counter Benazir and PPP.Found a party based on hate and violence against the
Non-Urdu speaking people who
had settled in Karachi and Hyderabad.Now living cozy in
London under Crown protection
sending brimstone and fire on
people who oppose his cult.

KhalId Rahim, United Arab Emirates - 19 May, 2007

Open terrorism

The MQM and Musharraf were responsible for this, no doubt. In Islamabad, people were playing music, dancing, and "supporting Musharraf", whereas in Karachi, open terrorism was taking place and Pakistani blood was being shed. Isn't the government's job to protect it's citizens? Apparently not. Altaf Hussain is a terrorist and so is his party and isn't Musharraf supposed to be fighting a war AGAINST terror, and not with it, unless ofcourse thats only to impress the United States.

Imaan Hazir, Pakistan - 19 May, 2007

5/12 Massacre


Time to pause and really see what is happening! Pakistan is under pressure for sometime from various external directions. Terrorist acts in NWFP with increasing frequency and dimension is a source of concern though phenomenon is getting internalized yet contained!

Even as tension in NWFP growing the disturbance in Balochistan by Bugti and few other outfits came on horizon with the force challenging government by blowing up gas lines and government installations on regular basis.

To compound situation further Lal Masjid mullahs in Islamabad challenged government writ by threatening to establish own manifesto! While the tension with mullahs of Lal Masjid is on going yet another issue of Chief Justice came to live!

In a very short time, Chief Justice gained momentum almost if it was planed! He started running the show by coordinating bar association meetings all over the country. He came out on streets with opposition support! Media reports indicated that Chief Justice was involved and had meeting with political parties in Dubai prior to the reference against him.

Experts and analysts have been emphasizing that Pakistan is vulnerable to internal threats! Internal vulnerabilities if enhanced could tip over the balance towards disorder! Markers are visible for susceptibilities. Two of the volatile triggers are ethnicities and religion! Once those primers are ignited entropy will set in! Newly attained dynamics will thrived by the energy of internal decline or downward spiral! Once initial set up is achieved that will provide the impetus to hate and blame each other for ever!

MQM seems to have huge constituency in Karachi! With stronger base they may continue the firm standing! Question raised is interesting! Possibly, MQM perceived that bigger rally in favor of chief justice, as a threat to their vote bank! More then that perhaps MQM took it as a designed attempt by other parties to liquidate Vote bank! MQM spoke person prior to 5/12 stated that speaking of Chief Justice to bar association is acceptable and will be supported if not backed by the political parties!

MQM or any other party’s announcement of a counter rally on the same day is in line with democratic norms! Democratic norms, is essentially the platform which provides access to all parties at the same time. There are examples, where two opposing groups hold rallies at the same time in the other countries!

All political parties including chief justice is responsible for the massacre in Karachi. Chief Justice should have had understanding that he is being used by the political parties! If necessary, he could have brought his case to public without providing a pulpit to the political parties! Being a chief justice of the country one would expect the higher awareness from him! Knowing all possibilities, he should have postponed his visit to Karachi bar association!

Opposition parties knew exactly what was going to happen on 5/12 in Karachi! If they really care about people of Pakistan it would not have had happened! It is obvious, chances for authenticating their need while country is unmanageable is higher then peace time. Even better, if emergency is implemented!

Since, MQM is in coalition with the government they have a bigger responsibility in maintaining law and order in karachi! They should have taken all measures to ensure safety of the people and property! Moreover, when MQM had realized the Chief Justice is pumped by the opposition parties and unwilling to change his plan then they should have cancelled their rally for the sake of peace!

Seemingly unrelated events discern a pattern prompting a question if this is by design? Massacre in Karachi demonstrates embolden individual and party interest! Rest of the job will be done! Now, we have a choice to blame each other and use this energy to lose what we have or figure out what have just hit us!

Shame on MQM

What happened in Karachi shows the real face of MQM. It claims to be the representative of oppressed but practically it is gang of criminals who plays GHQ game. Musharaf is right on his war on terror but he has done little to tackle the monster of Fundamentalizm. He wants to become an absolute ruler with American backing but history tells us that it will be bad for the country in the long run. MQM is being used to intimidate opposition.

K, M AHMAD, Pakistan - 19 May, 2007

Peace within Pakistan

Karachi used to be peaceful paradise to visit. The city has beautiful climate year round and has many fascinating beaches like Clifton, Kimari, Minora, Hawks Bay, Paradise Point, Sands Spit and more. Can we rhink of the wonders of Karachi rather than mixing up politics with the people's priorities that can be other than politics.

I have visited Karachi several times and have found it a wonderful city. The British governor Napier had said as such:

"Karachi, you will rule the east one day."

My first visit and detailed one was when I went there with my Chemistry Honours class of Government college, Lahore in 1964.We went streaming and stopping at every major city and finally spent good one week in Karachi.

We even broke away from our class mates and roamed the streets of Karachi past midnight each day. We watched films, we visited beaches. Our department head Dr M.A.Azim, who became principal of G.C later, accompanied girls, and Professor Mahboob Shah Hashmi accompanied us boys. We were roaming all over Karachi without any fear.Now, you visit Karachi with all types of scares even about your life.

I think politics spoiled it all. It started with Gauhar Ayub's roughening of Muhajirs, then it was Zia,then Babar for BB and all along the way MQM started arming itself and also readying with show of brutalities.

May be they should de-escalate politics to revert Karachi back to peace.

It was awefully sad to see those 50 died.MQM raided the procession from motor bikes.Musharraf and Co were doing their own celebrations.The Cj was bent upon doing his political show while he was dressed up in colourful glasses and a show boy fancy dress suit as the most dressed up among masses.The political parties wanted their own piece of showmanship and the common man enjoined as a partisan and non partisan spectator.

Those who fired the first shot need be punished and the police, that stood there idle to watch, must be fired for not protecting the civilians lives.

Revenge and counter revenge will not take us any where.The world press is making joke of us already.

May be they should de-politicize Karachi and declare it only having a special commercial status.

Karachi is the commercial heart beat of Pakistan.

I THINK THAT PAKISTAN SHOULD DE-POLITICIZE KARACHI.KARACHITES SHOULD HAVE A VERY SPECIAL STATUS OF COMMERCIAL MODEL AND SHOULD BE DEVOID OF ANY POLITICAL AFFILIATION.PAKISTAN SHOULD SERIOUSLY THINK OF GIVING KARACHI A PEACE HEAVEN STATUS THAT HAS NO OR VERY LITTLE POLITICAL BINDINGS LIKE VATICAN CITY.

THERE ARE TOO MANY ETHNICITIES JUMBLED UP IN THAT ONE GREAT CITY.SINDHIS, PASHTOONS, MUHAJIRS, PUNJABIS, BALUCHIS AND ALL OTHERS ARE SO LUMPED TOGETHER IN ONE CITY THAT HAS COMMERCE AS ITS HEART BEAT.

CAN WE EXPECT THAT EVERY KARACHITE THINKS ABOUT HIM AS MAN OF COMMERCE AND PEACE.THE CITY IS GRAND COMMERCE WISE AND LET DIRTY POLITICS NOT POLLUTE IT.

CAN WE REQUEST THE SINDHIS, MUHAJIRS, PATHANS AND ALL OTHERS THERE TO KINDLY START LIKING AND LOVING EACH OTHER AS THEY USED TO DO LONG TIME AGO.

WITH NOTHING AGAINST ANY ETHNIC GROUP OF KARACHI, CAN WE REQUEST THE KARACHITES OF ALL ETHNICITIES TO START PUTTING LOVE IN THEIR HEARTS FOR FELLOW KARACHITES.

I BELIEVE THAT LOVE FOR PEACE FOR FELLOW KARACHITES AND YEARNING FOR COMMERCE AND LITTLE POLITICS WILL BRING ETERNAL PEACE TO KARACHI.

MQM's Leadership Reflects

We have seen people being slaughtered on 12th of May in Karachi. Infact, all the responsibility lies with the fanatical leadership of MQM which has often been accused of intolerance towards people belonging to other political opinions.

It is the time that nation must start distinguishing between foes and friends.

Masood Balouch, Pakistan - 20 May, 2007

My heart is weeping

Where are you taking my country Mr President? You came with a 6 or 7 point agenda but you collected the most corrupt persons around you. This is what you have sown for us. Probably worst has still to come

M Saeed, Pakistan - 20 May, 2007

It too shall pass

As an expatriate Pakistani,I remeber Karachi,the prosperous
cosmopolitan metropolis is now
replaced by impoverished,blood
soaked city controlled by hate
and fear.
I am not surprised.When the
provincial government is subservient to a orders coming
from London, what can an ordinary citizen do ?Governor of Sindh responding to his master's voice makes frequent
trips to London,who is minding
the store at domestic front?Mr.Altaf & Generalismo both were aware that MQM would not allow any big procession in Karachi.Carnage would have not
taken place if Generalismo had sent a battalion of Pak Army & few machine-gun mounted
Jeeps to Karachi prior to the arrival of non-functional CJP.
Politicians will make speeches
as usual, Remote Control in London will keep on rabble rousing and Generalissmo will
keep on assuring the nation &
rest of the world that he was
working for law & order.
Memory of May 12th will linger
for a while and like I said,it
too shall pass.

MQM THE BIGGEST TERRORIST

No need to say much more on MQM GREAT TERROR RECORD in Pakistan,but this it was unique as MQM was given full rights to kill by the army chief.Police men were seeing laying in cool shadows listening music and MQM ghundas were placed on bridges of main airport highway to fir eand kill as many as possible.Its a terror situation from which acity has to get out,so far i dont know how,one more asif nawaz or general babar required i guess.

ali haider, Pakistan - 21 May, 2007

Sad day but whom to Blame?

I have noticed the comments, mostly blaming each other. I think, after this event, entire nation has come to one conclusion, poor show from political personalities and as well as Government. What can we do as a nation and as an individual to fix this? Is there is a way? More than half of Pakistan doesn’t believe in giving Votes and most of their votes are being stolen. In this case we have seen in the past, parties who uses their influence to get elected, whose fault is that. Why Pakistan always progress when some General take over the Government. “By the way Musharaf is doing good job for Pakistan” Is our whole structure is corrupted? Are we failed nation? Or we are failed as an individual. Being a nuclear power (as a failed nation) what are our responsibilities. Should we now attack India to get Kashmir? Absolutely not! Let me say this now to our nation that Kashmiris are not interested to be the part of Pakistan they want a country of their own so please keep the idea to yourselves now and we lost East Pakistan in this process. This does not mean that we don’t want to help Kashmiris. We have let Marshal Law prevailed in this country several times because we have not worked on the individuality basis. Every person in Pakistan can make the difference and it is time that we go back in history to find out our mistakes and if we keep making mistakes again and again, we will loose our identity as a nation and there will no Pakistan but Sind, Boluchistan, Punjab and Frontier. Let make a list of our weaknesses. I think we can start to work together, especially all political parties and CJ situation, do not let it go beyond its boundaries. If you are in a big group you must ask question on the basis of integrity, basis of believing in yourself. Media must get involved to help people of Pakistan, understand the value of giving votes. Do not let others steal your votes. We must stop this Corruption. We must choose that person who we think is right for the nation and if we made a mistake about him lets get involved and get him out of there.

Aslam Sheikh, Pakistan - 21 May, 2007

MQM Mafia

A general whose is devoting bulk of his time to get re-elected, a Prime Minister who is most of the time out of the country on some mission he knows only.Lack of leadership is bound to creat chaos.MQM guided by a Remote Control in London is running the circus.Altaf Bhai is safe in the sanctuary provided by Tony Blair.General without any hesitation hands over Pakistanis suspected of terror
to his western benefactors but would not dare to have Altaf extradited.Whatever happened to educated urdu speaking intellectuals !!! Why are they so silent ? I guess Mafia Don has scared them to death.
