Karachi: On the hit list again

 I found in my home-came from some unknown direction
Metroploitian city Karachi is again on the hit list of terrorists.More than 80 people have been deprived of their lives.Is this the city karachiiets were proud on?A search opeartion will now be conducted in sensitive areas of karachi.

It was such a horrible feel for me to watch the very famous and over crowded places of karachi on Tv- not crowded with people going offices,colleges and universities but with an air of horror and intense firing, burnt tyres and violence.Like every other peaceful citizen I also wish for the safety of Karachi and khiiets.Sometimes i think that we are more unlucky as comapre to people of Afghanistan,Kashmir,Bosnia and Palestine.They are in the clutches of enemies-whom they can easily recognize. But what about the innocent people of karachi,who are the residents of an independent state but are in more danger than them.

We donot know that when a bullet from an unknown direction would come and pass through piercing our hearts!!I live in a safe area guarded by the armed guards 24/7 hours.Still it doesnot matter when you live in a horrible and hate mongering city like karachi.TWO bullets from some where came in our home in these two days.Thanks to Allah that all of us are safe.

Dekho... Door ek Laash pari hai..
Chohraaye key Daaie'n Janib Konay per
sun-san gali ki Kachra-Kundi dekh rahey ho ?
Os ke pas, Lahoo me Luthrri Khak-Alooda,
Bhikrri Bhikrri Ghair Ya apna, kon hai Jane ?

Aao ..! Dekhe'n aur Pechane'n Naqsh mita daley,
Goli ney Rangat khoon me Doob gai hai Jeib ta-tolo, kya rakha hai ?
Ye 2(dau) khoon se tar, Gajray hen 10 , 10 ke do note rakhey hen

Haath jo neechey daba hoa hai Es ki sakhat griffet me kya hai ?

Shayad..! hai school ka Basta

Jeib se ye kya Jhaank raha hai Ek Parcha hai, Khat hai... shayad Tooti Phooti si Urdu mein Rang-Brangi Pencilo'n key Sab Rango'n se Likha hoa hai . . . . .

" Aaj Jo Bhoolay Basta mera Katti ho jaye gi... tum se toffee aur Biscut bhe lana...! Peyarey Abu, Jaldi ana...!!!"

Karachi being the economic hub of the country should be free from target killings and all sort of riots. Unfortunately government has failed to controll the situation.I donot see any point in avoiding ARMY.People of karachi will be relaxed and the terrorists will be caught.Pakistan Army also belongs to Paksitan and we have trained them for the same time.It should be no shame for government to call army in karachi.We all know that POLICe is the most corrupt department and if it it is removed than ratio of crime will be down to 50%.Anyhow i pray that real terrorists be caught and punished terribly for all their crimes.(one of my far-fetched dream,i know)
What do you think?

A sad note on a beautiful blog site, but correctly depicting the worsening law and order situation of the city.

Thinking said...

hmm...yes sad indeed...and time to reconcile too...about what is actually wrong...giving again and again such type of violent days....

hmm...when certain people try to overcome a city...and want everyone else to leave the place to them...same thing would happen.

hmmm....

Inna lillahe wa inna ilaihe rajeoon.

First, I am so sad to hear about the current incidents of terrorism in Karachi.
I also I agree that there is nothing wrong if the army is called in Karachi now.

I think police can do nothing in a situation when there are chances that one of the ruling party itself is involved in these killings.
I cannot understand why "angry MQM" always results in a terrorised Karachi.

I am so sad that you had to personally witness these incidents.

Our brothers and sister of Karachi,
Be Patient, peace will be back in our country , inshaAllah.
InnaAllaha maasabereen.

Thanks for coming.In all these riots Alhamdullilah i with all of my family remained safe by Allah's grcae but yes many other innocent people lost their lives.
A search opeartion was decided for sensitive areas but what the hell, again by the orders of MQM the pre-decided search opeartion was cancelled!! so,
does it ring the bell??

Everyone is sad on teh recent events but,
I will strongly disagree with the idea of handing over the city to Army, what we are experiencing today is just because of the long army rule. We need to find out the root causes, can you deny the fact that Kalashnikov culture in Karachi was introduced by army to tackle Bhutto's power in Sindh. Can anyone site a single violent incident of brutal terror prior to Zia's regime?
One more thing we should revisit the results of the previous army operation in Karachi before doing another?

ReeBz said...

peerless:
Mind telling me about any previous army operation in karachi.As far as i know, it never happened.
Secondly, if i suggested army for karachi city, then it was definitely only to control the worsening situation of the city and notfir ruling the city

Muhammad Hamza said...

OMG.
Konsay area mei rehti ho..?

I wish I lived there....!

I have always wished I heard firing in my locality
except the firings they do at weddings....:P

Muhammad Hamza said...

@Reebz,Although you were here in karachi before I was,
I know that there was an operation during the Benazir's government in 1991-2 ,when the MQM broke into two sects and there was severe shootouts in the city amongst the two.
The army imposed curfew and hundreds were killed.
That's was also when Altaf went abroad.

Girl,you really need to read about the history of your city.!..")

ReeBz said...

Hamza- all karachi is exactly the same specially when there are some riots. Whether its gulistane johar,gulshan,north nazimababd or malir korangi, eveywhere people heard firings!
Its childish ov you to wish so :)

@ Hamza
Thanks for the information, I have heard about those riots but actually i was alot young so I just didnot pay any attention to 90s era.
Anyways thanks.

Salaam,

While reading todays paper "Urdu News" in Saudi Arabia I came across this deep Urdu poem and thought of sharing it in your post:

Sure, with every single dead body there are untold stories, perhaps; full of similar pain as described in the poem above.

Eyewitness:
This poem is indeed very touching amd heart felt.Speacially it fits to the current situation of the city.
If you donot mind, may i add up this poem in my post?I'll mention your name as a c ourtesy.

Eyewitness said...

ReeBz, I think it really deserves its place in your post.

Since, I am not the author of this post and belongs to unknown author , you may want to give its credit to "Urdu News, K.S.A" It was published on 24/10/2010.

I believed from very young age and still believe that love is the only power which can conquer all the hatred and evil of our world, this was what I meant to say that hate and evil can not be beaten by power shows or blind operation in city areas. Although I am not from Karachi, but I have so much love and affection for Karachiites (no matter which cast they belong to), but I ve experienced as an independent observer that the city is divided into various ethnic groups, and all the problems are due to this divide. Believe me common people neither believe in cast nor in ethnicity, but the elite classes divide us and the power struggle widens the gulf, So please be united all. God bless our city

ReeBz said...

Thank you !

May allah keep us all very safe!
Nice poem!

hina said...

We really wish and pray for every ones safety.I read somewhere and i guess its right that two ruling oarties of karachi i should rather say famous and strong rather than ruling.
Any way, both of them are now thinking about the division of pakistan, and they think that after divison America will turn khi into dubai like place, so at that time who ever will be in power will get karachi, so thatswhy all of these riots are done to create fuss.

ReeBz said...

Hmm hina you may be right.They need to realize that what did America do with saddam after occupying iraq!
