The MQM in Lahore

MQM has long tried to make inroads in Lahore. The controversial party is quite ‘known’ for their popularity in Karachi, much like Zardari is known for his popularity all over Pakistan.
I remember linking MQM’s first try to get into Lahore by opening a center here, with a sudden increase in reports of mobile snatching. Nevertheless, the following is a great reminder our political parties will go to, to show their strength (much like MQM ‘show of strength’ on that fateful day in Karachi when people were shown being shot at on national television).

Thanks to this keen-eyed blogger, we have now a ‘large presence of MQM in Baltistan, Skardu’. The image is photoshopped to show a larger crowd. More details here

    Its not only by MQM. I’ve also seen PML(Q) doing it before last elections.
    Newspapers just need money to do it. Most of the photographers get both versions, the original and Photoshop-ed one.
