  2. A lesson for our youngsters indulging themselves in so-called political activities. People of GB are so innocent and can be easily used by those political groups. Youngsters coming to karachi from GB must concentrate on their studies rather then involving in gangsters in the name of political and nationalist parties. Parents must keep an eye on them. I’ve seen many guyz are involving in some nonsense activities of gangsters spending nights innocently. We have our own identity as GB people. Why MQM? why PPP?? why ANP? why any other party?

In fact they were just KIDS in front of MQM gangsters ! May Allah Help you all. And May this once so peaceful area from where we got many university friends during late 80’s ,always Flourish … ameen

  3. It is a result of our nön unity of GB people, not any political or nationalism.
