TTP spokesman had 20-minute chat with Chaudhry Aslam

The TTP spokesman joked with Chaudhry Aslam and said that since the government was secretly negotiating with them, what would he do if the government handed over control of Karachi to the TTP.

Aslam replied: “If that happened, I would bury your (TTP) Ameer Hakimullah Mehsud and you (Shahidullah Shahid) in Mewa Shah graveyard (in Karachi).

Aaaah!!! I’m so angry and depressed because of chaudhry Aslam’s death!! Why, why? A part of me is still hoping he is alive. Is there anyone else who can stand up against the terrorists like he did?

The irony of Karachi is that it has no ownership. If KESC took ownership of electricity, don’t you think it deserves some applause?

“Hawkers, poor people, commuters are not separable,” Hasan told The Express Tribune. Hawkers or push-cart vendors give the poor man a 30% cheaper price than a shop. “Wherever you will have bus stops you will have hawkers,” added Hasan, who co-wrote Hawkers of Saddar Bazaar in 2008. “It is simply because of an anti-poor bias that they are called encroachers. There is no bigger encroachment than DHA itself – first finish that one off.”
