Seeing the latest footage coming in of the #PSX #attack in #Karachi it seems the Pakistani security forces have neutralised the threat. Awaiting official confirmation so take this as UCR.

ہوابازی کے وزیر،سرور خان ہیں۔1985 اور 1988 اور 1990 کے انتخابات میں یہ ایم پی اےمنتخب ہوئے۔97میں ppp کے ٹکٹ پر الیکشن لڑے،ہارگئے۔ 2004میں یہ شوکت عزیز کی کابینہ میں محنت اور افرادی قوت کے وزیر تھے۔ اب سرور خان لوگوں کو راز یہ بتاتے پائے جاتے ہیں کہ ملک پہلے والوں نے تباہ کیا تھا۔
خسرو بختیار صاحب اکنامک افیئرز کے وفاقی وزیر ہیں۔1997میں مسلم لیگ ن میں تھے۔2002میں ق لیگ کےٹکٹ پر ایم این بنےشوکت عزیز کی کابینہ میں امور خارجہ کےوزیر تھے۔2013میں پھر مسلم لیگ ن میں شامل ہوگئے۔ 2018میں جہانگر ترین کے بزنس پارٹنر بنتے ہی ان کا ضمیر جاگ اٹھا آپ کا بھی یہی موقف ہے

Something very fishy is up at Seaview. The big encroachment which you see on the beach is a building called Chunky Monkey. Inside the yellow circle are public toilets. Tractors constantly rake the sand about on that spot. What exactly are they trying to accomplish? #Karachi
Silly decorations dot the beach, while the loud smoke emitting tractors raking the sand not only disturb the peace of a natural open space, but also destroy the delicate ecology by preventing sand dune formation and killing marine creatures who live on the beach.
Seaview beach is home to delicate bubbler crabs. Here, a sweet soul covers his burrow just before the rising tide. Residents of the city have a callous disregard for this crab as they dump their sewage here, and on top of that drive loud buggies on the beach all day. #Karachi

HRCP shares the grief of all those who have lost loved ones in the crash of #PIA 8303 in #Karachi earlier today. It is imperative for both PIA and the Civil Aviation Authority to investigate the incident transparently and ascertain the causes of the crash.
PIA and the CAA need to ensure that all aircraft are properly maintained and flight safety precautions implemented. All those who were affected at the crash site - a residential neighborhood - should be compensated. There must also be more investment in rescue operation brigades.

Every few days I see lamenting of MQM sympathisers sharing stories of how ‘ innocent’ men were picked up by LEAs and tortured without any charges laid against them. These incidents have made it difficult for the impacted families and others to ‘ love’ Pakistan. We have all 1/n
heard these stories time and time again. But we never hear stories of what ‘ innocent’ MQM men were doing in #Karachi that led to the LEAs to do all those horrific things to them. Let me tell you one story of two teenagers Anil & Muhibullah students of Saint Patrick’s Govt 2/N
College, Saddar. Anil & Muhib were affiliated with the People’s Student Federation and Anil was 18 and a Sindhi, Muhib was a pushtun and 19 years old. Anil was the only son of a widowed mother who sent him to college so that he could build a better future for himself 3/N

The #ChineseShip detained by India and the international duplicity.
The Department of Revenue Intelligence and #Kandla Customs detained a Chinese ship on February 3 for carrying a falsely declared “dual use” industrial autoclave as an industrial dryer, which can be used in the manufacture of ballistic missiles.
Now the scientists from the #DRDO are examining the suspected cargo of the Chinese ship #DaiCuiYun, bound for the Port of Karachi to ascertain whether the 2005 Indian law against #WMD and the international laws on the same can be invoked against both the consignee & consignor.

#Karachi Gas leak update 10h00.

This thread is to sift thru specualtion and fact as far as what is publicly known.

Folk a lot of rumours in circulation on impact zone and cause of leak etc.

Here is what is known as of now.
- 2 consecutive evenings gas spread and has left 10 dead and over 400 plus treated. A majority discharged. A small percentage remain critical.

- the ground zero is area near the oil terminals. Some may know the area as the point where you get on the boats for crabbing.
- depending on wind direction and speed the gas can be smelt as far as jinnah bridge. It is causing irritation to the eyes and a burning sensation in the throat as well as being an extremely foul odour (rotten eggs).

- cloth mask, paper masks are not for gas leaks.

#Pakistan Stock Exchange is performing extremely well. #PSX 100 Index has reached to 41,692 points which is highest in 1 year time. Last highest point reached was in Feb 2019, when it was 41,614. The total value of the PSX now stands at 11 Billion plus (11,221,537,322) #Karachi
Total Volume 1 year back was 88.9 Million shares, today it is 251.3 million shares.

Future days look very promising. Different sectors are performing well, which shows the depth of the market & investor's confidence.
The market will improve more, as soon as the #StatebankofPakistan will reduce the interest rates. Even with such high interest rates, still the investors are investing in #PSX.

Macro Economics indicators look good now, & it's time for their reflection on micro level
