The World’s Biggest Cities Today and By 2030. Amazing to behold. I would like to mention living in Karachi though, the population is now above 20 million and amongst the Pakistani press the number circulated is 22 million. A long overdue census would catapult Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city into the ranks of the ten most populous cities of the world.

This is for fans of Sylvia Plath. Screw her. Ted Hughes is the one who wrote The Iron Giant. Bringing joy is a lot more useful than simply snuffing it (and themselves) out.

Remember that Shia killings will still continue in Pakistan during Ramzan. These terrorists don’t believe shedding blood invalidates your fast. It’s not okay to have sex, but it’s 100% okay to kill a handful of Shias while fasting. 

A few years ago they bombed a fruit market in a Shia neighborhood of Parachinar hours before maghrib. Mothers sent their children to buy food to prepare for breaking their fast as a family, but on that day, parents broke their fasts without their children.

Michelle Williams and Kirsten Dunst. Dick (1999, Andrew Fleming).

Badmazingly funny film.
My perspective on the Watergate Scandal (The original “-Gate”) scandal has changed since the Bush Administration left office, but for about a year or two from when Dick came out, it was a really fun film. It came out in the wake of the largest scandal at the time being a President lying about extra-marital affairs, so its political humour is nice and fluffy, but I intend on watching it again. Kirsten Dunst and her buddy were hilarious as satires of Woodward and Bernstein, and period pieces involving Nixon seem to end up being fun. Probably because a lot of people in America actually were having fun in the early ‘70’s.

God finding that picture of Malik Ishaq was a pain, I hate looking at his filthy nasibi face. 

The man is responsible for hundreds if not thousands of Shia murders in Pakistan and continues to roam free in its cities. Lashkar-e-Jhangvi typically receive more judicial action because their numbers are tiny in comparison to Sipah-e-Sahaba (nowadays known as Ahl Sunnat wal Jamaat). The law fears Sipah-e-Sahaba’s numbers, but even then, arrested Lashkar-e-Jhangvi workers are released within days. 

The man who ordered Sibt-e-Jafar (ra) and nine other Shias to be murdered spent a few months in jail for murdering Shias before he was released and continued his spree.

khatmal:

non-Shia Pakistanis who, for their own filthy nationalist agenda, try to argue Pakistani Shias generally live comfortably are some of the worst people alive.

The fear that shook Shias in 1990s Karachi upon hearing the name Riaz Basra is not normal, working Shia men having to take different routes going to and coming from work every day is not normal, entire Shia families ghettoizing themselves after receiving threats or even because they feel endangered in their non-Shia neighborhoods is not normal.
