MQM Issues Life Threats to Dr Arif Alvi

Arif Alvi receives Life Threats from MQMLiving in Karachi, for all Karachiites is a life under constant threat from the Bori-Bhatta mafia & also others, that probably for us all is a normal routine, but more recently the threat levels have escalated and he has been keeping the recent issues under the carpet for quite a few weeks, but im glad after some long drawn discussion & debate Dr Arif Alvi finally decided to open the pandora’s box today in the National Assembly.

Receiving threats from MQM workers, Arif Alvi tells NA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Dr Arif Alvi informed the National Assembly on Thursday that he is receiving threats from people who claim to be workers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).

“I have spoken to MQM leader Farooq Sattar about this issue,” the PTI leader informed lawmakers in the National Assembly.

“For many days I have been facing life threats by people who claim that they are working for the MQM,” he added.


MQM MP’s Resigned because they were Cowards & Buzdil

The resignation story is NOT about Karachi or any of the flowery arrested target killers or the Rangers operation in Karachi – the story is about how “Coward & Buzdil” MQM MNA’s MPA’s & Senators did not defend Altaf Hussain Bhai in the Assembly floor on 10th of August as Ch Nisar criticized him for issuing Anti-Pakistan statement during his late night speech from London a few days earlier

So for the record its not about Karachi – its not about Muhajir cause – or anything else – its about MQM parliamentarians should defend what Telephone-wala Bhai says & then retracts on a daily basis

So much for a party being lead by a telephone …. and the people of Karachi hostage to his mood swings … MQM, quite honestly, would be better off without the telephone


MQM and its Telephone – holds Karachi in shambles

As I narrated yesterday the problem of MQM lies elsewhere (read London) – a narration of what happened that lead to the resignation – knowing Bhai this scenario is quiet possible – I only miss the fact that it was not nationally televised to hear the anger / and the bang in-your-face hang up

DAWN: On late Tuesday night the national and provincial level parliamentarians (in Karachi and in Islamabad) gathered for a meeting along with members of the coordination committee and some participants from the US. In their various locations, they were addressed by the party chief from London.

Some senior MQM leaders joined the meeting from the US while the MQM members of the National Assembly and the Senate were listening from the Parliament Lodges in Islamabad. Members of the coordination committee were present in Karachi and London.

And a severe dressing down followed.

MQM chief Altaf Hussain lashed out at them for their cowardice and betrayal. Unclear on how to placate their party leader, the elected members offered to resign and to the shock and surprise of some of them, he agreed before banging the phone on them.

Mr Hussain who had worked himself up into a state of rage by then said that the parliamentarians could do whatever they wanted and hung up.”


MQM Resignations in the Parliament – Mistake by MQM

In other news MQM to resign from National Assemblies – To be honest, thats a stupid move, all my differences with them, I think its an idiotic decision, my honest opinion is the problem lies elsewhere (read London)

Many in Karachi feel, Karachi is getting better (sans a few horrific incidents) but general direction of establishing peace in Karachi is on the right track and many militants are being rooted out – that said the entire Pakistan knows that MQM has harboured militants who established a Bhatta-Bori culture for the past 26+ years – this Bhatta-Bori menace sadly hijacked the “Muhajir” rally cry to turn it into a militant party (at least in the eyes of all Pakistanis)

Solution simply lies in the parhay likhay leadership (if any left) to allow the Karachi cleanup progress to its full culmination, the party itself will stand to gain as the ruthless, lawless elements who had destroyed MQM will get cleansed out, its about time many fall into this trap and Karachi returns to a life back into the romantic city called the city of lights.

I request all Karachiites to stand aside and let the Karachi cleanup operation continue, for the future of this city, it has to be done, some (read, very few) may be in the wrong place at the wrong time, but sadly, TOO many – thousands of innocent Karachiites – have succumbed / Killed to these Bori-Bhatta mafias sadly being killed for being in the wrong place, at the wrong time

MQM – Aman Committee – ANP – Talibans – and anyone else harbouring militants need to be expunged from Karachi entirely – no if’s and but’s please, no humaray karkun – anyone and everyone should be swiped


Karachiites must support Rangers – to save Karachi

For all Karachiites – its a fact – in the past few months, the cleaning operation by the Rangers has helped us all live & breathe, as previously the Sindh Police under the explicit control of PPP and MQM were jointly helping to dig our graves

So if today MQM for its own interest in protecting its own militants is against the deployment of Rangers in Pakistan, then I think it should be quite clear to all that MQM is AGAINST Karachi and wants to lead this city to catastrophe.

Deja Vu to the 24 MQM MNA’s who signed into law the Pakistan Protection Act last year, enabling our LEA’s all powers to cleanse Pakistan of all militants & terrorists. So if not for anything MQM should blame its own MNA’s for supporting this law.

Karachi must strongly oppose MQM & PPP for the sake of saving Karachi – Karachi must be totally cleaned, no militant should be allowed to survive in any capacity whatsoever, be they belong to any political party whatsoever. – shared by Awab Alvi on Facebook


PM House releases a Fake Image to Coverup the Solar Deal

So the Solar Panel deal (which I mentioned yesterday) makes it to Dawn. Imagine the desperation to cover-up the deal that the PM office released another picture, instead of the signing ceremony of the Solar deal and captioned it as such, in a way trying to showcase it as a project sanctioned by the Norwegian Govt – they showed Nawaz Sharif sitting with the Prime Minster of Norway

Funny part is that this picture has NOTHING to do with the 150MW Solar panel deal – this is a picture from a side discussion from the Education summit – How so? the lady sitting next to PM of Norway is Laila Bokhari who is State Secretary on Women and Education to the Norwegian Government

The 150MW build-own-operate solar deal is a perfect project laden with abundant cuts and commissions – a higher solar energy tariff means we’re all gonna pay through our nose for many many years to come. Scatec Solar, with its local counterpart Nizam Energy (and possibly many others in the pipeline) will make millions times over – its easy for Sharif to sign expensive business deals and transfer the burden back to the Pakistani taxpayer’s – utterly unintelligent economic solutions for Pakistan

Solar energy for all what it may be worth to the environment is still a First World High-risk energy generation investment, not geared up for an economically struggling third world.

Credit to the source from Norway, helping expose this Sharif fiasco


PM Sharif actually in Norway for a Mega Solar Deal

Prime Minister is headed to Norway for an education conference – so important is the education conference that dignitaries from Rawanda, Haiti and Nigeria are attending and the conference is being inaugurated by UN SG Ban Ki Moon and also by Malala – I guess PM is there to applaud the efforts of Malala from the audience, if he’s not there for anything else

The 40+ member delegation which has accompanied the PM shall loiter around and not even bother interacting with any Pakistanis living in Norway

But what the author rightly ask – what’s the “REAL REASON” of the visit – sources say a mega $$$$ solar project deal is on the table – a local sweet talking front company in Islamabad which barely has license to install 10MW project is to bang this lucky draw with a Norwegian company to be one of the Norwegian companies biggest project of their life – funding will be allegedly claimed to be from some ADB source, but reality at the moment is that it’s gonna come squarely out of our (Pakistanis) pockets

24 MQM MNA’s Sign Pakistan Protection Act, to Seal their Militant Workers fate

One year back on facebook I wrote as to how 24 MNA’s voted yes to the Pakistan Protection Bill – giving LEA’s sweeping powers to take control – I even warned that this bill would have impact on them mostly then anyone else

Now one year down the road abundant MQM militants have been taken to task and at each 90 becomes a crying fest “dewar saye laga diya” they should first crucify their MNA’s for rubber stamping this bill to seal their workers fate !!

24 MQM MNA’s voted YES to the Pakistan Protection Bill – which gives LEA’s sweeping powers and legal cover, so if the next day when some MQM militant gets killed in an “encounter”

So when that unfortunate day comes, the MQM workers & Rabita committee should blame its 24 MNA’s who voted AYE to the Pakistan Protection Bill

… Now when Bhai wakes up in London he calls it a Black Law and seems to have missed the memo. Ironically this bill has been on the floor for a few months !! and the MQM parliamentarians voted as per consultations from London.

So im wondering whats going on

#♥︎Karachi from Alvi Dental on Shahbaz

A breathtaking sight from the top floor of our new Alvi Dental setup on Kh-e-Shahbaz

#BombayBloodForAneesa

The appeal is simple – spread the request to locate the rare blood groups known as Bombay Group H/H found in 0.0004% of the population and help save Aneesa

Aneesa is a household maid who is severely ill – she needs more blood and apart from one generous donor. two others snuck away for fear of donating blood – help locate more possible donors

Aneesa was moved from Civil to Ziauddin and requests are being made internationally for blood – it’d be cheaper if we find a donor in Pakistan.

Some active people are personally overlooking this case myself Faisal Kapadia, Sabeen F. Haque, Faizan Syed, Nabil Jangda, Jehan Ara, Zarlasht Faisal and more to give you an idea of the credibility supporting the authenticity of the case – mashallah with combined efforts funds are made available from generous donors – we need your help to spread the word

Facebook / google or twitter marketeers you may want to pitch in a few $ for an ad push for the page – only ask to help locate a similar blood group in Pakistan and then this common Pakistani can live to maybe donate back to some other individual needing Bombay Blood at sometime in the future

#BombayBloodforAneesa


Bombay Blood Group for Aneesa

Aneesa needs this rare blood group in Karachi – estimate there might be twelve individuals in the entire Pakistan – spread the message and maybe, maybe someone on your Timeline might know of a person with this Bombay Blood group – It’s Aneesa today and tomorrow it could be another individual.

All it takes for you to spread this message / image / FB page across your social media with the hashtag #BombayBloodForAneesa – maybe some person is some corner of Pakistan can be identified as having this rare blood group called Bombay Blood Group – they can only take blood from this specific group

This campaign also helps us build a future database if in case they need any blood later on in life – estimates have it that there might be only 12 individuals in Pakistan with this blood, ONE was kind enough to donate, but Aneesa needs more, today we moved the Aneesa from Civil Hospital to Ziauddin and are working on the possibility of reaching out to blood banks globally for some urgently shipped blood, but if we find one in Pakistan – it would be significantly less costly

 


Revenge of the ballot – by Fahd Hussain

A must read article by Fahd Hussain, a few extracts

“Some people are just such incurable apologists for elected scoundrels.  It’s really not that complicated. For five long bloody years Karachi groaned under the collective sins of the PPP-MQM-ANP triage. People were killed like flies while criminals flourished like emirs of oily sheikhdoms. Fat cats grew fatter and multiplied like rodents, infesting the nooks and crannies of government and semi-government organisations. And the city went to hell. As did the province.

If the PPP-MQM-ANP triage had honestly wanted to clean up Karachi and Sindh, they could have. They had the mandate; they had the legitimacy; they had the powers and the resources; and they had the time. Yes, five long years of unchecked, undiluted and unadulterated power. But they did not because they were, and are, part of the problem.

So you apologists — wake up and smell the stench of this farce. This mess is not what we deserved; this is not what this country was made for. Hundreds of thousands died and millions were displaced for scoundrels, rascals and swindlers to rule this land into total mayhem? Yes, the military has contributed generously to this mayhem, and yes its leadership in the past has unleashed monsters that ravage this land of ours today; but what do you do now when Sindh is being ruled to ruin and there is no chance of reform under the PPP and the MQM?

Extraordinary Pakistanis: Dr Arif Alvi – Express Tribune

Express Tribune: Dr Arif Alvi is an acquired taste. He isn’t your typical flash in the pan Pakistani politician who rides his 1,000-watt charisma to answer difficult questions. Instead, Dr Arif is that rare Pakistani politician whose substance overwhelms his style. He quotes ideas from Plato, Maulana Maududi, Marx and Thomas Piketty with equal ease. Even if you’re a resident of his constituency in Karachi’s Defence or Clifton area, you might not know that he was shot twice while protesting against Ayub Khan’s military rule. “Suddenly my hand dropped and I started bleeding,” says Dr Arif, recounting the moment he was shot right before curfew. “I held my limp hand and walked towards the hospital. My fingers were paralysed for months. I thought I would have to give up dentistry as a profession after I was shot.” The bullets remain lodged in his body to this day.


The Railway School almost ready

It was truly a ghost school before – Insha’Allah now with the involvement of The Citizens Foundation – TCF imparting good quality education it should become a proper school – impacting the lives of children in the area.

Funds to revamp this school were raised from kind donors and supporters – and slowly in the 4-5 months we are now almost ready to hand the school over to professionals at TCF to manage this school henceforth

Credit goes out to many selfless volunteers and donors who have made this a reality – Leadership from Dr Arif Alvi who waded through the bureaucracy, it took time, but perseverance has paid off – Inshallah once this school becomes fully functional the school will start catering to around 2000 children (both shifts) from a dismal 250 enrolled at the moment
