Recent blasts in Abbas Town which targeted shia community once again not only was the cause of fear for the karachiites but due to those blasts people (including me) started criticizing SharmilaFarooqi because , the night of the blast, little miss political celeb was getting engaged at Mohatta palace with all the security deployed at the venue. WOW FACTOR??? Let me make it more wow by saying that there was no security at the place of the blast.
Whole night people were debating, arguing, abusing, catfighting over why couldn’t the bachelorette cancel her event just for the sake of the people who lost their loved ones. How can you being related to Government enjoy your happiness when there are hundreds injured and the death rate increasing every half an hour?? To be honest Madam, we really don’t care , if you get married or not get married, YOU ARE LIVING ON OUR TAXES , IF YOU CANT BE THERE FOR US THEN MAY BE ITS TIME FOR YOU TO BE OUT OF THE RULING CLASS. Dont’ you always proudly claim on tv that you have been in jail and your daddy has also served time over Steel Mills scandal ?I have heard you say that on many TV channels . But who would be your own spokes person this time when millions are mourning the tragic loss of lives in Karachi ? Because if then it was without any incrimination , as the claim is then this time it was .
While heavily secured event/ dinner continued till the early hours in the morning, nothing was heard from her over the calamity that had hit karachi…Wait! wait a sec ! They continued it till the early hours?? Seriously??? So any of the “aam awaam” gets married, for them the rule (12 bajay hall bundh, nae tou dulha bundh) applies, and as for the Queen bee, HEY! WHAT RULES??
So, the next day, she thought of giving the clarification. Which isn’t exactly clarification, I would call it, the nerve to act not very civil Coming back to the point, a news site reported that she tweeted:
“Abbas town is in District Central and Mohatta in District South Khi. They have separate DIGs to SSPs to SHOs”
She responded to all the criticism and queries (in a very shabby fashion I must say). She tweeted:
“Oh 32000 police personnel were protecting 400 guests? Find a better excuse to bash me!”
“Ok! So the blast was my fault and the unfortunate casualties were because Clifton Police was around Mohatta…If it soothes the haters keep abusing”
She also clarified that the event was only a dinner, and not the engagement ceremony.
“And one final clarification. My engagement was on 24th Feb at my house. Yesterday was a dinner. Simple.”
Aah ! the guts …. The attitude… and the thing to justify a wrong … not a hint of remorse for all the loss of lives …bad shame-eela bad !
One thing that caught my attention was , *ooh la-la dinner and that too at the Mohatta palace* (which we all mistook as her engagement). Good with changing plots you are, aren’t you?? Firstly mademoiselle, we don’t believe you. You can a spin a yarn. For most of the others in the are a part of this game. This could be your engagement but to protect yourself from people like me for instance asking you, how come bara bajay wala rule doesn’t apply for you , you could have faked it for awaam and media as your dinner thingy. Secondly, isn’t it against law to arrange parties in museums and places of the sort??? Could i be answered reasonably for my querey ?
In my humble opinion most of the current lot of Politicians doesn’t stand anywhere in the public eye !! i don’t know much about politics but I do know from the youth of today around me that how much do they respect the politicians of Pakistan .Not much ! Gauge it by any yard stick and the result will be in minus. How you attended a conference related to entrepreneurship society and none of the students noticed you or even greeted you, was our way of expressing how we feel .Embittered!
Rumours have it about that…an event management company, refused to organize the event….and we all know when we approach An EMC we do inform them of the dates and days our events are supposed to be on….so i am sure that company knew the dates as they wrote in their status yesterday that we are thankful to ALLAH that we backed out of putting it up. The sadness struck karachi at the same time.
P.s : Even if it was her engagement, and the picture from the event in which she is clad in black then allow me to say, that the dress was not right for the occasion as our tradional PK girls would like it to be … looking like a guest on your own engagement is a starange misfit . Seriously? By inviting Rahat Fateh Ali and requested him to sing *tenu samjhaawan ki* THRICE..must have been very mesmerising for those in attendance . But for Karachi , Pakistan it was a night full of sobs , tears and agony !
