Lahori Reporting Live from Toronto #1

This is Opee for Lahore Metblogs News, Toronto.

There will be series of pictures and videos which will represent Pakistan from the eyes of a Lahori visiting Toronto. This is the first mail in this regard. Today I am bringing you how the newspaper responded before the launch of KKL (Khuda Ke Liye). The newsapaper is a Toronto based Pakistani Newspaper, which is available free of charge from most of the Desi/Pakistani Restaurants. I will be publishing more of such photos later on.

The newspaper reported that: “In Pakistan, A movie is made to support singing, listening music. Junaid Jamshed criticized”.


As if all the rest of the movies in Pakistan have always been so clean and pious. As if Pakistani Movie Industry never supported singing and listening to music in the past 50 years. Hence, even here, people (rather opportunists) find ways to attract viewers and to play with the emotions so that their newspapers are sold more and more. Here is an example of no matter where you are, thinking remains same! :) I believe, if you can’t change your mind in Pakistan, you can’t change it elsewhere. So its all in your head. Decide yourself. Any comments?

More coming soon…

    **Free of charge Newspapers** — Phir tu pakistani khoob parhtay ho gay :)

    And very well said … a man takes a step ahead and comes up with a film with a message of peace and negating the hyped-up anti image of Islam and yet everyone comes up with fatwas against him.

    Well, most of these people chanting on top of their voices haven’t even seen the movie. Why can’t they ban the stupidifying dances in each punjabi, pushto and urdu film, the absurd dialogues with obscene jokes … if our people can laugh on the usual dirty jokes of every other film; why can’t we give them space to use their minds and think what are we doing In the Name of God and Islam.

    Just one thing to say

    The Prophet said: “Whoever leaves something for the Sake of Allah, Allah will provide him with a better thing”.(Imam Ahmad)

    it’ll be another “sham ka akhbar”

  5. Opee (unregistered) on July 26th, 2007 @ 8:52 pm

    @Binary-Zero: Na, it was Sunday ka akhbar. :) It usually gets published over the weekends. So whenever you get some time and you are there to have a treat of Halwa Poori at some desi restaurant, you get to see such newspapers. :)

    @A for [pine]apple: Yea, people love to read them. All Uncles, Aunts, University-going-youngsters who come in batch to sunday brunch. They read it during the waiting time! :) These days story of Osama Bin Laden’s Son getting married with a British lady is hot. So its about less news more gossip kind of newspapers :) which pakis just love.

    Shayari insaan kay ander ki awaz hai; It all comes from one’s heart. So, in short, if you have a heart and can express what’s within – You’re a poet! 8)

  26. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on July 28th, 2007 @ 2:06 am

    i never liked these ads of kala jado , aamils….all govs. shud ban their ads in all newspapers/media.

  27. Opee (unregistered) on July 28th, 2007 @ 2:32 am

    I hate those!

    Worldcall had a policy that they won’t show such ADs on their cable. But other cable operators used to show it. I believe it should be banned nation-wide. There should be a code of conduct to be followed by all the cable/tv operators.
