VICE Guide to Karachi: Pakistan's Most Violent City (Part 1/5)

Sure, we hear about violence in Pakistan all the time, but in 2011, more than three times as many people were killed in Karachi than the number of people killed in American drone strikes in the tribal areas. VICE explores the seedy underbelly of this ultra-violent metropolis of more than eighteen million people, and meet the players who make Karachi one of the craziest cities on earth.

    Through the great community-driven language learning site Livemocha, I’ve met and have established great relationships with many people around the world. Unfortunately, through many conversations, it is abundantly clear that the judgment toward America of MOST people I’ve encountered has definitely been negatively affected, not just because of the wars, but quite significantly by the stupidity of G. Bush. They simply laughed when I expressed that the great majority of Americans are peace-loving.

    Wow! I didn’t think it was possible for a cultural documentary channel to compete with the quality of Journeyman Pictures or Current:Vanguard, but lookie at what we have here: VICE. The reporting is so raw and in yo’ face! All the while being professional yet real at the same time. Suroosh Alvi, the founder of VICE and the narrator/host of this video, deserves many awards and much recognition for the quality and uniqueness of his organization and reporting. A big thank you for sharing your work!

    Last year in Pakistan, a 9-year-old girl had acid thrown in her face by her 10-year-old husband, who was also her cousin. These married children were acting out all aspects of a Muslim marriage, which includes the ritual blast of acid to the face when the wife displeases the husband.
    Pakistani Express Tribune reported that in Noshki, a town in the region of Balochistan, a fatwa was announced in a mosque on May 11 2012, stating that any woman using a cell phone will have acid thrown in her face.

    I also agree with your thoughts. Pakistan is also in a revolution, much like Egypt went through. However, our Politicians are much more rooted in and corrupt bastards, so it is a little hard, but so much good is happening. Some decent people are making changes. I once saw a dirt poor homeless man give another his piece of bread. The people are beautiful. Look at them, not at the country. I’m sure G. Bush was a dumbass, but America wasn’t judged because of his stupidity. Ignorance is wrong.

  13. Lykenbane1 says:

    Well, if you truly mean this, then you are no where near any better than the very “Sand Niggers” you want to commit a genocide against.

  14. Lykenbane1 says:

    Hey there. I agree with you, I have heard of some Pakistanis doing this, however, for the most part, a lot of us are still proud to be Pakistani. I do not want to live some lie. I do not want to gain people’s favor for telling them I am someone who I really am not. A way to separate the weak from the strong is to see who will judge you, fairly, knowing who you really are. Many people in America don’t hate Pakistanis, but the politicians in Pakistan.

  15. Lykenbane1 says:

    I can guarantee you that I have no double meaning. But, sir, I am no brainwashed person or extremist. I know how Pakistani people can work sometimes, most are complete jerks, and this has nothing to do with religion. That’s just how it is sometimes. I think people need to not confuse religion with personal problems. However, I will believe what I know to be true, and you may believe what you wish. I do not believe ALLAH to be anything else, but Merciful. Think about this before your next thought

  16. Lykenbane1 says:

    And I am truly blessed to be born into Islam, but I know that violence and hatred is not the answer. As a Muslim, we are supposed to uphold our dignity. Yes, don’t take anyone’s malicious attacks, prove people wrong, but at the same time, don’t make everyone else your enemy.

  17. Lykenbane1 says:

    I understand that there is no tolerance for nonbelievers of ALLAH and those who put Gods in ALLAH’s League, this is Haraam, but what you’re saying is that ALLAH basically created people into religions besides Islam, to have them sent to Hell? No, I believe if you are a good person, you will be rewarded with Janaat. All religions have the same rules, do not drink, fornicate, lie, etc. This life is a test, and many people do discover Islam on their own.
