That’s pretty damn hilarious. Rickshas are the new age Pakistani alternative of stand up comedians, man! :D
if its not photoshopped, the man got the balls of steel!
Hats off to LRO 1680. :-)
so you know imran too perhaps…
i actually had the image up on my metblogs post screen… when I decided to check ‘just in case’… and there was this image glaring str8 at me, as if to mock me at my lateness :) …
Man make this guy president!!
looks like the masses aint too happy with the passing of the Women Protection Bill…aka Huqooq-e-Niswaan bill.
SO this is a tongue in cheek reaction..equating the rights or so called protection given to women under the bill being equal to something as “put-the-right-word-here” as being able to Drink freely (alcohol)!
And also entrenched in the minds of our masses…Drinking or PEENA PALAANA…(alcool again) is a) a man only activity and b) Huqooq-e-Mardaan aka Mens Right (tongue in cheek?).
in a nutshell…Women protection bill = an activity as vile as drinking
Oh and more comment…this statement on the riksha is another evidence of Us as a nation accusing all of our shortcomings or vices on Musharraf…
Fahaashi barh gaye…ji musharraf ka karna hai…
dhamaka ho gaya….musshy ko chund…
etc etc etc…bus musharaf ka kasoor hai
WPB is replacement of a bad law (Hadood Ordinance) with another bad law.
We have to remember, whether for some reason we like it or not, that we are living in a declared Muslim state. Apart from that, more importantly, it is the ONLY state in the world built on an ideology, so that in itself is reason enough to think a bit differently.
We need to gauge the WPB against the Islamic laws, and not with the laws of any other country, period. In that way, WPB fails JUST LIKE Hudood Ordinance. The only good coming from WPB is that it is a step towards ‘re-thinking’ and that can lead to good things, we hope.
But one good point raised the MOMERS is that we blame our own shortcomings on our leaders… and I will take it a few steps further by saying that this attitude of blame-the-leader by the so-called followers is the reason for our shitty status quo as a Nation and as an Ummah.
Peace and God bless
Like this man’s marketing tactics. Must have a brave heart to do that. I have posted the same at KMB now.
Check it out.
“ONLY” state in the world? what about Israel? they are beating the same drums of ideology; and got the same religious fanatics, here its the ummah crap of Salafis, over there its Haredi. What’s the difference? None.
Iblees: Israeli laws are not based on the Bible or Torah. Jews may use their religion as their identity butthey are not beholden to the dictates of religion, unlike the citizens of the Islamic Republic. The founding Labour Party of Israeli is very strongly social in its leaning and is opposed to any attempts in truning Israel into a religious state; hence the formulation of Israeli Constitution could not happen until 1990s. They use rationality, not revalation, as their source of law. Pakistan and Israel are not same.
Momekh: Any law which is discriminatory and owes its origin to a religious books compiled centuries back, not to humanity, equality, rationality and freedom, is wrong.
@JAYJAY: Pakistan was NOT created-as islamic republic,
the nation was founded as the Dominion of Pakistan in 1947, and was renamed as the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in 1956.
See wikipedia, if finding hard reading history text books. Just because the religious propaganda has affected the name, doesn’t mean that you go deny all the history. I don’t say Pakistan and Israel are the same, but the religious movements that is doing the work of mass brain wash are identical; and Israelis fanatics are doing their best to do the same what our mullahs did few decades ago. I recommend reading neutral history of the world.
About laws of israel, Basic Laws of Israel
din-e-mullah fi sabeel-allah fasaad.
on a different note, Bible has nothing to do with jews, they follow Torah, Tanakh, Talmud, and Shulkhan Arukh.
Definition of the Bible from Wikipedia:
“The word “Bible” refers to the canonical collections of sacred writings of Judaism and Christianity”.
“Judaism’s Bible is often referred to as the Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible, which includes the sacred texts common to both the Christian and Jewish canons.…”
“Pakistan was NOT created-as islamic republic, ”
“the nation was founded as the Dominion of Pakistan in 1947, and was renamed as the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in 1956. ”
“See wikipedia, if finding hard reading history text books. Just because the religious propaganda has affected the name, doesn’t mean that you go deny all the history.”
Thank you for your advice to read history books but where did I say that Pakistan was CREATED as an Islamic Republic???
“din-e-mullah fi sabeel-allah fasaad.”
I can’t agree enough
I fail to understand what made in my post made you “recommend” reading of neutral history??
“In 1998, Aharon Barak, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Israel declared a “constitutional revolution” and attached constitutional ascendancy to the Basic Laws of Israel. The basic laws are various pieces of legislation from the Knesset that outline the nation’s political structure.” [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_Laws_of_Israel]
@JAYJAY: Please introduce me to Zionism.
Well seriously I don’t care about Israel and might have a kind heart for Jews but since you look a big fan of Wikipedia, here are some links that might help you to change your point of view…
“…Israel declared independence in 1948 and is the world’s only Jewish state, although its population includes citizens of many ethnic and religious backgrounds…”
Have a good day :)
Even BBC is on it; http://www.bbc.co.uk/urdu/interactivity/captions/story/2007/02/070202_your_caption.shtml
So what WPB and Hadood law says exactly, anyone knows the script?
Scientology wahlay kyon khamosh hain :)
ARRrray..kia witi wiki wiki witi ho raha hai?
Ye riksha statement kisi taleem yaftaa, zaheen aur seasoned person ke nahi ho sakti. As a muslim hamain apni her soch, baat, aur amal ko balanced rakhna hay, jis say bohat log behramund nahi.
Is nay WPB ko parhai bhaghair, souni sunaye batoo per banner lagay ho ga,i bet. Hamari sense of humour bohat achi hay, otherwise.
Another good post Vaqas! :)
Continuing from the comments section of an earlier post: I do agree that even though the posts at LMB are far and few yet they are way better than most of the posts in other Paki MBs.
I have gone through all the comments and felt the necessity for clarifying the bad or good about Hadood Ordinance 1979 and Women Rights Protection Bill 2006.
Hadood Ordinance had a flaw that, first, it’s implementation was being done through British India Law and, second, our police always helped the richer or more influential of the parties. The Women Rights Protection Bill will help every person who rapes or commits fornication but not the victim.
If any body has any doubt he or she should read both the laws and compare them
Well said iabhopal!
Could someone be so kind and post an English translation of the writings? I am very interested in Pak culture yet my knowledge of Urdu is far too limited to understand this…. shukriya!
– English translation as posted by Karachiite @ KMB:
For the attention of Mr. General Musharraf
Accept congratulations for the success of the bill to protect women.
Please make one bill for the protection of men also.
It is very hard to drink (alcohol) nowadays.
– And for those who can understand Urdu but can’t read it, Roman Urdu follows:
Ba-khidmat janaab General Musharaf sahab,
Haqooq-e-Niswa.n bill ki kamiyabi par mubarak-bad qabool farmaye.n.
aik bill haqooq-e-marda.n par bhi bana dei.n – nawazish hogi.
peenay pilanay kai liyay baRi tangi hoti hai
“looks like the masses aint too happy with the passing of the Women Protection Bill…aka Huqooq-e-Niswaan bill.”
“And also entrenched in the minds of our masses”
“Oh and more comment…this statement on the riksha is another evidence of Us as a nation accusing all of our shortcomings or vices on Musharraf”
MASSES??? a statement at the back of a freakin’ rikshaw by some drunken idiot is a reflection of the opinion of the MASSESS???
For crying out loud! just STOP reading too much between the lines for once and take it as a freakin’ joke!
