Delimitation in Karachi is not viable while General Election is due within few months

Delimitation especially in Karachi will not suffice to obtain a transparent number of residents living in Karachi - a metropolis city accommodating approx. 20.0 million inhabitants. It’s a mega task and certainly cannot be wrapped up in 3-4 months even if a complete team equipped with electronic overheads & goes with heavy security contingent, will not be able to achieve.
It refers Supreme Court recent directive to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) giving verdict of petition filed by some political factions claiming miscalculation of voter list that votes has been shifted out of Karachi.

The Judiciary however asked ECP to delimit Karachi or ‘new delimitation of electoral constituencies’ seeking army help through door-to-door voters verification said in the court verdict.
The court also asked explanation from provincial interior ministry to submit report that what ‘safety and security measures’ have been taken to control the rising lawlessness where ‘Karachi’ has been converted into a riot city, daily strike calls from different groups, arson public & private properties, bank robberies, constant target killing, kidnapping and ransom, Bhatta mafia etc. have been the talk of the town whilst one day business closure (stock market/ banks/ ports) costing Rs.2.0 Billion per day in Karachi.

Step taken however by Judiciary in order to delimit specifically in ‘Karachi’ attracts ambiguity & suspicion about rival group who misled the institution or wants to break the vote bank already being enjoyed by one of the political faction in Karachi. They urged the ECP to initiate same exercise of delimitation across the provinces in Pakistan instead to do only in Karachi said by one political leader debating on Private TV Channel.
The same petition for wrong voter list could be filed from other provinces as well but it did not happen as there is hold of one party or one political group dominating the province & city – Not mix political factions similar to Karachi he further added.

And initially it falls into the ambit of Election Commission of Pakistan if there is or was any delimitation issue. ECP is an independent and autonomous constitutional body, charged with the function of conducting transparent, free, fair and impartial elections for National Assembly and Provincial Assemblies not Supreme court. 
Nevertheless the ECP has taken the base of 1998 census to conduct General Election in the country clarified on TV debate. As per population figure obtained as of July 2011 showing 190,291,129 people living in Pakistan and up to 15 million Pakistani of voting age may have been left out of the rolls due to different reasons said ECP in its analysis.

As per Final Electoral Rolls (FER-2012) there will be 84 million people eligible to vote leaving one in seven people without the right to vote based on 1998 census where the current population around 190 million.

About 51 per cent of the population is, according to the census report, aged 18 and above that implies an estimated 98 million Pakistanis are now eligible to vote but only 84 million Pakistanis have been included, said Final Electoral Rolls report.
The ECP estimates the gap to be even higher at 20 million voters. The last census in the country was conducted during 1998 (the era of peace & tranquility) by the Population Census Organization of Pakistan.

That massive exercise, which was supported by the Federal and Provincial governments, the Army, and other Law-enforcement agencies, generated data that is generally considered transparent and used by all National and International organizations for Planning and Resource Distribution report said.
Again, delimitation also required carrying out in Baluchistan, FATA & Punjab as about 4 million people are living in Karachi because of their jobs in this metropolis city since decades then how their names are still shown at their home town in electoral constituency said in National TV debate.  

Every year Monsoon torrential rain causes severe Flood havoc in the country where lives and properties are damaged and perished, from 200,000 to 250,000 people go homeless they live in make-shift area/ tents or in temporary houses, their home goes abandoned but their names still shows in the same electoral constituencies said by one participant. The death toll also tunes from 2000 to 10,000 every year.
Does ECP updates data for Sind, Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhawa & Punjab emphasized in National dailies?

Realistically the time is not suitable for 'delimitation' either in Karachi or other provinces, let the General Election go accordingly. Arrange country wide censorship which has not been since 1998 and then delimit the constituencies as per information collected during censorship.
Indeed a good decision from Election Commission of Pakistan will ensure conducive & congenial atmosphere to move forward for General Election in the country facilitating more room for new censorship afterwards.

We are living in the web of confusion, uncertainty, negativity & hypocrisy that’s why the things look us facedown.

The world where we live is full with pollution, pollution does not mean that smoke emitting from vehicles or from chimney of industries but our mind has enormous pollution and it is not cleaned rather has rusted & condensing more on every passing day.
Everything we see it looks us opposite, the thing is upright but when we glare, it appears as facedown. When we see someone he says why you frown at me whereas were just looking at him, a very serious cloud of negativity in the environment moving around.

If someone console it feels that he/she is cheating us definitely needs something that’s why talking politely. If you go to see relative to ask his welfare, he understands that you may be in need of something that’s why you visited.
If you stay for little time either in his office or at residence he takes impression that you will leave after lunch or dinner. If you phone to your friend/ relative as a courtesy that you are coming to see him, they excuse you very smartly that sorry we are preoccupied and going somewhere.

If you give some gift on any specific occasion then he feels that you will ask some favor that’s why you brought him gift either you want to borrow something or need some special favor which is in his hand. If you phone someone and ask his welfare he will not reply you radiantly but with low voice and put you feel that your call did not make him happy & he wants to get rid of.
If you go market or shopping Mall to buy anything the seller shows you something else and gives you something else, it gives you feeling when you come back home & noticed that the material you purchased were not the same. You will be annoyed because you negotiated the price and seller agreed but he did not deliver the correct items.

One fine morning I received a call from mother of my friend who asked to visit at her home she wants to discuss something about her son. At the weekend I went to see them, I got my friend very upset & fed up, he was talking with disappointment, aggressiveness, using foul language, annoyed and expressing in disgusting and revolting way. Certainly such condition for her mother was quite nuisance I assured her that I will take him to a Psychiatrist. I thought that he may be neurology patient but first I preferred to consult with Psychiatrist.
However the Psychiatrist examined him thoroughly and kept him passing through with a series of medical checkup where the doctor revealed that your friend has no illness of any sort. He is fit form all aspect, physically healthy and no mental uneasiness as I pointed out earlier.

The Psychiatrist however asked my friend in detail (before me) that what the problem is – Why are you so frustrated? The friend replied I am fed up and if I had power I would have killed everybody one by one. And if I knew I would not migrate and never asked my parents to relocate in Pakistan he said.
Nevertheless we wanted to know the reason of his resentment and indignation that why he is so irritated, he started to share his feeling with us that

There is no light in our area despite complaints with electricity department – there is constant power breakdown from 12 -15 hours on daily basis.
There is no gas in our stove, if comes it gives very low flame we are unable to cook our food

Our water tap is dry, when open the line it gives air but no water, we have lodged the complaints with Water & Sewerage Board (W&SB) but they seem unable to rectify the issue while I also brought into their notice of W&SB that the water tanker mafia has installed hydrant close to my locality & they are filling their tanks so how you can believe that the same line has water for them but not for us
This is 4th time I have lost my mobile at gunpoint, not only mobile but ID card and some money in my valet. When approached to the police station they advised me not lodge that someone snatched your mobile at gunpoint but say it has been lost on the way while coming home or going from home otherwise you will be in problem duty police officer said

I am still jobless I have been applying for the last one year, when approached to public or private sector they ask me to bring parchi (politician letter) or give bribe to get jobs
Once on my way back home before traffic signal I was asked to stop the bike, some boys hardly in 20s asked me Are you Shia or Sunni. I thought what should I say as I don’t know who they are, then said I am Qadyani one of the boy abused and pushed me to go as such I saved my life.

I was going through my scooter, in one of the locality I was surrounded with some activist on the road who came to me & asked to get down from the bike; they put my bike on fire to whom I will complain and who will return my bike.
I bought another motor-bike and for CNG I keep waiting for 4 to 5 hours to fill my bike tank, it has been a daily practice, only 2 or 3 days CNG is given to motorist our of 7 days in a week.

Two times I escaped from indiscriminate firing I was going to drop someone of my locality.
It has been quite tough for me to live in such tormenting condition, standard of living has been costly, cost of household items has been multiplied and even there is no honesty. The seller cheats you they show something and sell something he stated with anger. You can’t trust anyone in an atmosphere of hypocrisy and deceit.

Electricity & Gas billing approaching skyrocketing while there is constant outage of power & Gas
The sewerage water is spread on the street. No municipality guy comes to clean resulting impacting the dwellers living the area, stagnant water emitting bad odor due its passivity, no mosquito treatment. No govt. hospital in the area, street light are off since decades, no concrete road in our area despite reports with city govt. while we are tax-payer

There is rampant corruption in govt. institution if you go for some work they look to your pocket then lodge complaint – I went electricity department to correct the electric meter reading
After knowing all his grievances and the situation which embarrassed him I and Psychiatrist solace & assure him that these problems are not only for you rather we have been engulfed with the same situation (day and night) so don’t be upset or lose your temper – this is the reality and we have to live in the same web where we are.

We iterated that rampant lawlessness in the city, massive corruption & mismanagement in public and private sectors and these are national issue, there are 190.0 million inhabitants living in the country and you are not alone so live and breathe as we live we emboldened him.
My friend now has come down and radically has accepted the reality but multiple questions always spirals that when we will be honest & loyal with the country - Can we controlled unbridled corruption - Why we depend on shortcut instead to get or follow proper route for our jobs - When Electricity, Gas - Water & drainage issue will be resolved once for all - When our lives and property will be safe and secured and How the soaring prices can come down so that a low income earner may live at least with three time foods and can sleep under his own-roof.

Why there is double standard, when we will talk straight, think straight, walk straight and look straight instead to hide, misperceive & then misconceive resulting we go confused, guide others wrongly, sneaks suspicion as such different negative factors prevails and situation turns into negativity which interrupts the smooth flow of business.
The Doctor further clarified me that not only your friend is uncomfortable here the whole community is away from ethical standard and the reason is the only the environment, our surrounding, the facility which we have are not up to the mark, it has been dented miserably, govt. apathy are before us, no remedial measures in place. A person who did not sleep whole the night due to power breakdown and no gas in stove so how you expect that the counter staff of customer services industry will smile for you and serve you with pleasant it leads to exasperation the Psychiatrist said.

Human nature to celebrate Festivals whether the past events brought them Happiness of Sadness

 Festivals known as special occasion when people celebrate something which happened in the history of mankind

Human being celebrates festivals across the globe in 365 days in a year that’s why every coming day becomes a ‘Festival Day’. There are 7 continents in the world and has population approx. 7.0 Billion where people of different cast, creed and culture celebrate festivals.
People celebrate festivals whole the year and it goes changed from one continent to other, depends on the language, standard of living, customs, color and race and more important is the ‘events’ which has been falling in the history in subsequent days.

Something special, interesting and unusual happened on some specific date, people recognize it as a 'Festival Day' and as such they celebrate the occasion to commemorate.
The motive behind this celebration is to recall the events happened in the past whether those events brought them happiness or caused them sadness.

However the style & method of celebration goes differ according to the taste of the country or the people living there. The specific date reminds the people to remember, revive the previous events or revitalize by repeating such occasion & as such they celebrate the ‘Festivals’ with their family & friends.
If the events attributed with happiness then they decorate their homes, illuminate the city, gather and enjoy with multiple feasts, men, women and children adorn themselves with colorful outfits & women ornaments specially, singing & dancing & all go into ecstasies, special songs are boradcasted and telecasted, national newspapers hihglights the occassion prominently, exhibition & debates are conducted in support of occassion.

And if the event pertains to ‘sadness’ then they go for sacrifice, slaughtering and special prayer to invoke to forgive their sins, and to keep their god happy, invoking the spirits for their ancestor to mercy upon them or to release them depends on the believes.

So the stem of this short story is to convey that we should not disturb anyone and let people enjoy with their festivities. The majority should respect what minority is doing as there is equal right of opportunity for everyone living in this dynamic world?

Jesus was the Prophet like other Prophets sent by God to guide then nation.

The attach link says that  

Is Jesus God?
Is Jesus son of God &
Did Jesus claim to be a God that’s why he was crucified?

Jesus was neither the son of God and nor had he claimed that he was the God. Jesus did not pretend or personated as mentioned in the article and according to the article he was crucified because of this claim. It’s a baseless and fictitious just straying and misleading to Christians.

Jesus was just a prophet or Messenger of God like other Messengers sent by God to guide mankind to believe in One, Unique, Incomparable Allah. Who has no son no partner and that none has the right to be worshipped but Him alone. He is the true Allah and every other deity is false. He has the most magnificent names and sublime perfect attributes. No one share His divinity, nor His attributes. In Quran Allah describes Himself.
“Say! He is Allah, the One, Allah, to Whom the creatures turn for their needs. He begets not, nor was He begotten and there is none like Him: Quran 112;1.4

No one has the right to be invoked, supplicated, prayed to or shown any act of worship but Allah alone.
These were the messages which communicated by the Messenger of Allah in subsequent dates* So Jesus did not fabricate anything he just conveyed the message given by His creator (God) and he executed, he taught or preached the community.

Jesus had miracles and every prophet was blessed with different miracles considering the practice and customs running then community with the objective to disseminate God message, assure and convince followers and ask others to believe in one God and worship Him. And live with kindness, respect and sympathy with others, care for weak that were feeble & frail and help those who were less in economy by those who were affluent & wealthy.
A simple message to live with harmony and help the humanity without cast, creed, culture, race and color those were the message from God communicated from all prophets to their nation.

What exactly was the purpose for sending the prophets? To guide mankind who were worshipping idols and there were no living mandates that how to live with others, a genocide, no rule of law, stronger were killing weaker, a common usurpation of basic rights, uncultured and uncivilized era. The society were full with multiples crimes without justice, those who had a power were crushing, cruel and unfair control over the masses, barbarism were need of the day.
Realizing all these massive social sickness God sent His prophet to eliminate cruelty and extreme violent being rendered from one group to another who exhorted the mankind to maintain high morale and sprit of brotherhood for a healthy environment and those were the primary message from Messenger of Allah like Jesus.

Again, Jesus is not Allah or Allah is not Jesus – Even Jesus himself rejected this – Allah has said in Quran
(Indeed, they have disbelieved who have said, “Allah is the Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary. “The Messiah said. “Children of Israel worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord, Whoever associates partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise for him and is home is the Fire (hell). For the wrongdoers there will no helpers” Quran 5:72

Allah is not a trinity. Allah has said in the Quran
(Indeed, they disbelieve who say: All is the third of three (in a trinity), “when there is no god but one Allah. If they desist not from what they say, truly, a painful punishment will befall the disbelievers among them. Would they not rather repent to Allah and ask His forgiveness? For Allah is Oft-Forging, Most Merciful. The Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary, was no more than a messenger..) Quran 5:73-75

Why Kalabagh Dam is termed as a ‘Life & Death' for Sind province (Pakistan)

Misrepresentation & political polarization has marred the Kalabagh Dam construction in Pakistan.
Particularly the Sind Nationalist taking it with more seriousness and terming “Kalabagh Dam building” is a matter of life and death for Sind province.

Today in Sind assembly during Kalabagh Dam’s debate session, MPAs criticized openly and there were heavy uproars in the assembly over the verdict of Lahore High court which asked the Federal govt. to initiate the project that had gone suspended for different reasons though it had approval (in place) since 1991which later renewed even in 1998 to move further but no implementation at all.
It refers recent directives from Lahore High Court’s to the federal government to implement decisions of the Council of Common Interests (CCI) and build the much-politicized” Kalabagh Dam” has activated the institutional framework to take the issue to a logical conclusion. The verdict further stated that the name of Kalabagh dam has been a matter of tussle between provinces so it can be renamed if needed.

In the past though it bubbled for some time but again went dumped without any substantial reasons by then govt. said in the court verdict. Though the action at Federal level should have been initiated in response to Lahore high court orders but Sind Assembly however has started debate to prepare a final resolution and submission thereof.    
The Sind, MPAs giving justification that Kalabagh Dam will impoverish and deprive of the basic rights of Sindhies & Sindh will lose its liberty rather our people will suffer with unnecessary imposition & the manipulation being attempted by other Provinces on us (Sind) is a clear victimization specifically to Sindhis. And we will not allow anyone to usurp and encroach upon our freedom said by Deputy Speaker of Sind assembly.   

Since Sind assembly debate on ‘Kalabagh dam’ construction is continued and as mentioned by the Speaker that if needed he will keep the session continue for more than week to arrive at conclusion.   
However, on receipt of ‘observation’ from Sind assembly the Federal Govt. should make the report public for understanding of everyone living in the country. The project has been in-try, out-tray since 1991. Its more than 2 decades, though erupts for some time but goes extinguishes. And we have given our mandate that Kalabagh dam is a dead horse so why Lahore high court raising this again & again said by one of the MPA.

There is acute apprehension among the inhabitants of Sind province that other provinces of the country are trying to ruin them economically. A normal Sindhi feels that Punjab, Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhawa are predator and they are going to prey them.
We also have noticed that whenever Kalabagh dam project is raised, a very massive hue and cry & slogan against the govt. and authorities in other provinces of the country are blamed to trigger & fuel. Local and national media started conducting regular debate and due to heavy protests across Sind region the project eventually goes to withdraw said by one of the govt. official wishes to anonymous.

The people of Sind region believes that other provinces have hostility and antagonism with Sindhies, constructing dam will push them to the brink of starvation, their paddy fields will go dry, industry will close, less water will be available, unemployment will prevail and as such Sind will be compelled to rely on the support of other provinces and that’s why Kalabagh Dam has been shown as a ‘Venomous dragon’ who will eat Sind if it is built said by school teacher in interior Sind.
The ‘Kalabagh Dam” has been a matter of prestige among Nationalist because of miss feeding, miss-representation and showing Sind a vulnerable state and there is mindset that if dam is built the other province will take benefits on the cost of Sind etc. he further added.  

Nonetheless we cannot rule out the suspicious role of our politicians who have been visiting Sind constituencies during their electoral process, painted a very harsh, gloomy and depressing picture about Kalabagh dam. Instead to convince and assure the people with positive outcome they vandalized and sabotaged for their political interest just to maintain the vote bank said by the NGOs.
Hence the resolution from Sind assembly to be received to Federal govt. it has therefore been imperative for the govt. to constitute a bench comprising with the team at Federal level, Opposition leaders, Coalition partners, Leader from 4 provinces & Sind Nationalist party along with a Team of Technical & Administrative expertise, Town planners, Team of Engineers (civil, electrical, mechanical) along with a team of Supreme court judges to have in depth discussion, pros and cons, merit and demerit & environmental impacts at the provincial level evaluating technical and administrative parameters too.

The country needs a conspicuous & illustrative detail for general awareness of its citizen the reason for keeping the project defer since more than 2 decades on multiple reasons, a hidden agenda from the govt. where the masses have tired and they need a relief to counter the ruthless havoc of heavy monsoon floods which devours them and their properties every year which is the main manifesto and the reason to build “kalabagh dam”.
It should be our combined collective efforts to assure and convince our friends living in Sind region that there are no differences among provinces and we all are brothers and living under one umbrella called ‘Islamic Republic of Pakistan’.

As we are aware that every year due to monsoon torrential rain and thunder storm more than 200,000-300,000 people go homeless & from 2000 to 10,000 lives are lost in monsoon flood water, the ruthless flood create havoc in the country where thousands of cattle, millions of crops and hundreds of acre farming lands are inundated and perished so brother at other province extends hand to save the vulnerable brother, this is our obligatory and constitutional duty to live with harmony instead do politics on ‘Dam construction’ said by one Economist on private TV channel
The dams and reservoirs are meant to harness the river waters for accelerating socio-economic growth and mitigating the miseries of a large population suffering from the vagaries of floods and droughts.

Dams and reservoirs contribute significantly in fulfilling the following basic human needs: -

The media needs to play a positive role instead to do debate, lengthy discussion goes futile, attract people with different mode of teaching and education that why we build the dam – if dam is built how we can save people who lost their lives and property every year due to heavy monsoon rains across the country. If dam is built it will not support to only one province but will be beneficial for the country as whole where 200 million of people of Pakistan will enjoy with dam building.

The local Govt. of Karachi metropolis should impose ban on usage of loudspeaker

The Religious speeches (which are continuing these days) while living in a congested environment where the distance in between your apartment or house is hardly 10 – 12 feet from the house which is either opposite to you or situated adjacent to your house.

It goes very annoying and really a persistent nuisance for the dwellers living in the same vicinity or in the same community.
Even you can’t talk to your family because of using loudspeaker with full volume by the Maulvi/ Imam of specific sects who instead to do at designated place it is being carried out at community level in the houses & apartments.
I understand the owner of the house who is conducting such religious gathering at his/ her house should think that a regular use of loudspeaker will be harmful for their neighbor.

Owner who do daily arrangement for celebrating specific festival should care that around the house other people are also living, instead to listen to the preacher the people go panicky considering unethical attitude and not sensing and feeling the problem of older family members where there are some sick, kids & heart patients are also there how such heavy & hard voice will be getting him/ her more stressed and can cause brain hemorrhage.
The voice from loudspeaker impacts heavily with window glasses then anybody can understand how badly it affects to the brain of a patient who are facing such strikes on daily basis these days.

We being a Muslims are well aware that Islam teaches us to care for your neighbor and then your relative, the right of a neighbor has been defined in Holy Quran.
So I understand those who are doing such regular ‘sitting in their houses’ and using loudspeaker (with full volume) must avoid otherwise such unrealistic and ruthless trends if continued will lead to reverse the situation.
Further, Islam considers the rights of the neighbor to be extremely important. The Angel Jibreel (Gabriel) continued to urge the Prophet, to treat neighbors with kindness until he thought that the Sharee'ah would assign him a share of his neighbor's inheritance.

The Prophet,said: “Jibreel kept on recommending me to treat neighbors kindly and politely so I thought that Allaah would order [me] to make them [my] heirs.

The Quran recommends treating neighbors kindly - Allaah The Almighty Says (what means):

Worship Allaah and associate nothing with Him and

to parents do good and

to relatives, orphans,

the needy,

the near neighbor

the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side…Quran 4:36

Look how the Prophet, exhorted Muslims to be good to their neighbors and to honor them when he said: “… and whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, should serve his neighbor generously.”

The narration of Muslim states: “Should be good to his neighbor.”
I hope the Govt. of karachi metropolis will immediately issue a formal order to stop the usage of loudspeaker
There is arabic proverb that choosing your residence,” that it is according to the value and merit of the neighbor that the price of the residence should be estimated. A good neighbor is a source of happiness.

Karachi is burning

Karachi a metropolis city with a population of 20 million is identified as a heart & center of Pakistan losing its grip on national economy due to persistent deteriorating law and order, kidnapping and ransom, sectarian & political target killing, bomb explosion, packed dead bodies in gunnysack, regular power & gas outage pushing the city towards anarchy and chaos.

A face of complete failure state where govt. owned machineries though have taken multiple security steps but seemingly looking helpless before terrorist and rising terrorism.
Hot debate in every walk of lives at govt. level, TV channels & Newspapers are continuing in order to cope with rampant lawlessness in Karachi but no prominent response has been noticed so far. The deterrent safety and security measures taken by the govt. have been futile rather gone ineffective.
Daily killing averaging 15 -20 bodies, transport strike due to regular break in CNG supply, strike calls from business lobby to close shops, boom and zoom of Bhatta mafia (money extortion), indiscriminate firing in heavy rush hour at business centers, intensified killing among different political factions, police encounters, bomb explosion either slamming with explosive laden car, bomb plantation at different places and suicide bomber chasing have been common in Karachi.
A very frightening, worrying and upsetting situation for the parents sending their kids in schools, clouded fearfulness among families for their breadwinner going for works, a traumatized situation have enveloped the city said by a mother who could not drop her kids and came back home stating an indiscriminate firing on the road connecting with school building.
Karachi being recognized as ‘illuminated city’ now has lost its vibrancy & serene, giving a desert look like curfew & war-torn area.
Mercenaries roaming with heavy loaded guns, reflecting uncivilized and uncultured environment where barbarians speak and control the land with guns - No management, a complete anarchy and chaos.
The local govt. seems helpless before the terrorist- Anything can happen - And anyone can die a father mourning on the dead body of his 3 sons lost their lives (in group) on target killing in Karachi.
A recent political debates at private TV channel that how to reign the terrorism in Karachi, majority of them were of the view to call army to do ‘operation cleanup’ where Karachi alone has lost 4000 human lives in target killings & bomb explosions since PPP assumed office in 2008 said TV anchor.

Though among representative (ruling & coalition party) some were of the view to handover Karachi to army yet other were opposing and were not in favor of ‘army operation’ but asking Govt. to call coalition parties at the round table. One of the participant asked PML-N (being a second big party) to play role as an arbitrator and bring the coalition partners at one table for amicable settlement. In the past although such debates of course were conducted but ended in fiasco.
One of the debater mentioned that in Karachi there are 400,000 unlicensed latest rifles, freely being used and these are unregistered, no record that how it came in the city and how went Into the hands of its custodians and if political activist of any group is red handed, their leaders get them released so if such situation prevails then how you can eradicate the crimes.

The city cannot be left on the mercy of mercenaries said by one of the participant so govt. should be serious to enact a law to confiscate the illegal arms under circulation in Karachi said by one of the participant and ended the debate.
Now in order to clean Karachi with illegal arms, the need of operation-clean-up has been compulsory, there are proposal that how the strategy to be outlined.

a)   Constitute plan for ‘operation clean up’ with Rangers support under the supervision of army, where army will not be involved directly but will monitor the activity.

b)   The Rangers along with local govt. authority will raid the entire area of Karachi metropolis i.e. South-East-West and North.

c)   The raid will not be supported or to be influenced by any political parties, any request to release the culprit will blacklist the politicians for ten years from their political pay roll.

d)   First to erect CCTV camera with video footage recoding (and archiving) to ensure fool proof security system at all ‘entry & exit point from where the arms and ammunition are transported in Karachi either by Road, by Ship & by Air cargo.
Also take into consideration the desert area, sprawling for miles having no boundary & giving a free passage and access to the criminal entering in Karachi jurisdiction from up country.
e)   Install the scanner for screening (illegal arms) at entry/exit point to cross the vehicle through the scanner. It’s better to hire expertise to install latest equipment for screening the vehicle and cargo inspection system (VACIS) 
However there is Gamma-ray Radiographic Imaging technology which provides
clear radiographic images (much like x-ray images) of containers, showing the
outlines and density of the contents. With its very low radiation dose, the VACIS
scan is much safer than comparable x-ray systems to detect contraband hidden
within the cargo. The principle of operation of VACIS is similar to that of a line-scan x-ray system.
A handheld isotope identification system also can perform a gamma-ray spectroscopic analysis near the suspect region of the container, if there are any explosive, arms and ammunition inside the container the system will trigger alarm.  

f)    Depute well equipped guards at every entry/ exit point with handy scanners to scan physically individual entering/ leaving the city at entry/ exit point.

g)   The monitoring system should be centralized in the city inside in a big control room where all the terminals deployed at entry/ exit points to be monitored by the trained armed personnel sitting in control room.  

h)   A very close coordination in terms of telecommunication and surveillance monitoring to be maintained between the security offices at entry/ exit point & the control room  

i)     Communication through mobile phone/ wireless phone & landlines for all suspicious calls and conversation should not go untapped and through ‘call tracking system’ every threat calls pertaining to national security should be raided immediately, the tracking system will identify the country, city and town and then unit/ taluka to locate the people, we are living in 21st century and nothing is impossible but just need a concrete policy to do.  

j)    Book the culprit - trial them and hang them with the motive to clean the city with terrorist  

k)   Unarmed the city, definitely your close monitoring the entry/ exit point will disable the free circulation of arms and ammunition in karachi. 

l)     No more licenses to be issued till further notice form the govt. to any general public. 

m) The raids to be carried out unbiased and impartially – the raid should not be specific but for all groups running their political offices in the city or their electoral area. No one is allowed to keep arms in their office or in comfort without any license or any substantial reason thereof.  

n)   All the license should be maintained through a data base in the computer system whatever issued earlier, all un-entered arms needs to be confiscated and if mandatory then after enlistment into the system to be reissued.
Here we can see the recent successive bomb blasts during Muharram-ul-Haram the holiest month celebrated by minority Shiite Muslims who mourns the month to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussein the grandson of Prophet Mohammed, the Sunni-Shia schism over Muhammad's rightful heir dates back to that time a history of 7th century.
Shiite Muslims celebrate from 1st Muharram to 10th Muharram in their Imam Bargah and take out procession in the city which concludes on 10th day of Muharram known as Ashura.
Even though the govt. sensing the impending security threat in the country, deployed thousands of additional police across the country to beef up security for the holy day to avert sectarian clashes or attacks on Ashura procession. Mobile phone service also had been suspended in all the major cities to prevent the bombings which the govt. security says terrorists use cellular phones as remote detonators.
The terrorist even did not spare the mourners and targeted them in Imam Bargah and planted bombs on their way of procession. I mention here some shameless or coward attack of terrorist on the mourners of Shiite Muslims in Karachi and other city.
Karachi Orangi Town –2 killed and 7 wounded, two bombs exploded outside Shia mosque in Orangi Town, the first appeared to be a suicide attack, and the bomb was planted in a motorcycle ripped off near Imambargah Hyder-i-Karrar said senior police official Javed Odho.
Karachi Gulshan-e-Iqbal - 2 killed and 23 injured, bomb blast targeted mourners near Imam Bargah Karachi's Abbas Town when the congregation was underway in the Imam Bargah Mustapha a remote control device was used to detonate the bomb.
Karachi Hyderi Market – 7 killed & 23 injured the responsibility is claimed by Lashkar-e-Jhangvi's; Shuja Haider group was involved in the attack. Around five to eight kilograms of explosive material was used, Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) special unit claimed. The explosive material contained around 500-800 ball bearing the FIA unit added. Police claimed that LeJ's members Mohammad Shaqib Farooqi, Murtaza alias Shakil, Arab Miskeen, Murad Shah and several others were involved. 
Dera Ismail Khan  (province Kyber Pakhtunkhawa) – 8 killed and 83 wounded, a bomb exploded on a Shiite Muslim procession when the Shiites marking their holiest day Ashura. Shafeerulla Khan, a senior government official in regional capital Peshawar told AFP. A spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban soon claimed responsibility for the bombing and threatened more attacks. It was a suicide attack and we claim responsibility for it," Ehsanullah Ehsan told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location. He repeated that the Taliban had dispatched more suicide bombers across the country for attacks against the Shia community.
Rawalpindi explosion – 23 killed & 40 wounded at a Shiite procession in the garrison city of Rawalpindi when a suicide bomber detonated explosives strapped to his body at a procession near the Qasr-e-Shabbir Mosque. The Pakistani Taliban has claimed a suicide attack that killed 23 people at a Shiite procession.
Peshawar explosion – 7 people were killed and 83 injured in the bomb blast", Shafeerulla Khan, a senior government official in regional capital Peshawar told AFP. It was a suicide attack and we claim responsibility for it," Ehsanullah Ehsan told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location.
The interior minister Rehman Malik however reassures the nation that "Such nefarious acts cannot deter the people and the government in their fight against the scourge of militancy," he said in a statement.

The people would like to know that if the militant either Pakistani Taliban or Lashkar-e-Jhangwi very categorically are announcing their involvement in all such killing then why govt. is reluctant to take any action. Do they have active and operational “Tracking system” a device in place to find out the militant den? Latest equipment indeed required to be imported and planted in all big cities of Pakistan to cleanse the militancy from the country.
Closure of mobile telephones, land lines, wireless phone, suspension of you-tube, banning other network access & declaring public holiday (by closing private & public offices) to avoid of major killing in the country are not the appreciative or do-able solution to stop militant from their nefarious game.
Get the solution from technical perspective as administratively so far the govt. has failed to secure the lives and property of its citizen said by one senior citizen who was mourning on the dead body of his child lost in Karachi bomb blast.
Again, in order to cleanse Karachi with massive lawlessness where 4000 lives have been lost in target killing since PPP assumed office in 2008 needs to figure out the ‘Operation cleanup strategy’ to get the illumination of this city back.

Role of women in 21st Century

In my previous blog I highlighted the contribution of a house wife and made my comparison with the environment, limited resources and the facility of then era available 50 years before than the resources we have in today’s world.

Everything we have on our fingertip and we can see the world within no time because of ultra-modern technologies have shortened and reduced the time and space management, within in no-time we can travel across the world through globally connected system network.

How then housewives had been managing household chores smoothly comparing with working women who were little responsive being associated with her job in terms of domestic responsibility caring kids & husband, fulfilling the needs of other member of the same family.

My earlier blog initially pointed the combined-family concept what generally we noticed in south Asian countries such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, Cambodia,  Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines etc. where one man had been the only wage-earner (a husband) and the house-wife had been nourishing & feeding the entire family.
My daughter-in-law who read the blogs told me why you don’t write the Role of 21st century women and that’s will be more comparative than housewife role you pointed in your blog she said.

Now the concept of joint family almost has been vanished and most of us are living independently. It does not mean that we are not supporting our elders we do but keeping them separately and of course accomplished support are undertaken for all bigger and shorter requirement.

If we compare the women in 21st century with the role played 50 years before, we get explosion - A big bang about the “Role of women in 21st century” who are playing a vital & very distinctive role almost at every front

We can see the banking industry, education, central superior services, armed forces and civil services, from district management group to the level to foreign services, I.T industry, medical, telecommunication, aviation, stakes in strategic services, manufacturing industry and that leading role not only at entry level but up to CEO position being enjoyed by the womenfolk who are running the institutions with more value added services.

And women participation not only in corporate world but at home they have been playing a candid role. From educational perspective the ratio of education among women is greater than the ratio of men. It refers some TV interviews where we noticed that men are less degree holder than women; a post graduate woman has been wedding with a graduate or intermediate guy. The trends of education among womenfolk are higher than men folk. The impact we see when educational institution announces their result where among the position holders are women not men.

Now we get the women involvement in infrastructure support services such as civil, electrical & mechanical engineering. Their influences in construction filed doing architectural classic and modern design for skyscrapers cannot be ruled out.

Women of today’s world now have entered in country’s politics, they are contesting election and have acquired seats in National and Provincial Assemblies and most of them even has occupied Premiership across the globe.

Advertising & mass communication (video, audio, film, theatre & Journalism) also have been acquired by womenfolk because of their beauty, voice and persistency towards their performance.

The 21st century women are not only instrumental towards employment portfolio but they have been a good wife, a good mother and a good sister while maintaining their house, their family in a more conducive and prosperous way.

In today’s world where the life & standard of living have been very costly and competitive the wage earner or one person breadwinner has been futile so being a life partner or spouse of her husband she comes ahead and supports the family, such coherence & living with mutual understanding makes the life more stronger and happier, acting as a counselor in family matters enable husband and wife get them in one string.  

The women of this age not only support the family but also they become a source of revenue generating elements, their emblem in GDP contribution & dynamic role in strengthening national economy are conspicuous.

Women of 21st century are now entrepreneurs; they are running garment outlets, cosmetic centers, fast food, baby and baba house, lady and kids stitching shops even in developed and developing countries. There is Women chamber of commerce who is encouraging the working women to run their own outlets for small businesses through One Window System. The businesswomen pledged to play their pivotal role with their male colleagues for boosting and strengthening the national economy.
