Whenever I hear the words “Land Mafia”, my mind forms images of Pathans carrying guns in their hands, grabbing lands and terrorizing residents in surroundings or plot owners to run away. Many say it’s ANP workers that are involved in this. I don’t know how to differentiate between the two. In some parts Balochi crime groups are active in grabbing lands from peaceful civilians. Both Pathans and Balochis are basically and traditionally gun-lovers. If they are criminals then they love breaking laws without any fear. It is impossible for peaceful and common citizens to stand against them. But I still like it because at least people can distinguish them for being criminal so boldly and openly.
Let’s come to Punjabis and Karachiites. The second one may not be good at handling guns but surely both are expert in cheating many ways, more fearlessly and without any shame.
It was six years ago, when I received a call on land-line phone (I had one at that time) telling me that I have won a plot in Islamabad. Their office was in one of the buildings of Falaknaz Apartments in front of the airport. They put a big board right at the entrance of the building for visitor’s assistance. I forgot the name of the estate on it. The office consisted of two rooms. Two men were sitting inside while two boys and two girls were at the front. They all were both Punjabi and Karachiite mixed. Couple of men were waiting for their turn. Two big, black and white maps of some schemes were pasted on the walls. They were without any label. As I inquired, the young, very fashionable and bold girl asked me to pay 23000/- rupees for registration purpose. Then in a week I will get a free return ticket to go to Islamabad and visit this scheme which was near the airport. When I asked who is this person or group distributing plots for free. She said it’s our owner, he is a very rich man and very kind too. I then asked her to give me the paper so I can verify them before any payment but she refused. A couple of days later I passed by and noticed the board wasn’t there anymore. I already figured it out that they were cheaters.
Then met many cheaters who were skillful in deceiving through legal ways. Why am I saying that because papers cannot be prepared with seals and stamps on it without lawyer’s cooperation. How they get approved by KDA (Karachi development Authority) is another crime story.
So it’s common people working in government offices who have corrupted the whole society. From clerk to the head of the department. Their mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, girl friends…they all enjoy the ‘black money’ but never question their men how they earn it. In other words, our women are equally responsible for spreading corruption in our society.
One is the case of FAIZAN-E-ZAINAB Co-operative Housing Society Ltd. Registration #K-2095. Three years ago, they had office at H-108 A, Supreme Corner, Jauhar Chowrangi, Block-18, Gulistan-e-Jauhar and their phone number was 462218. The map describes the location near, Taiser Town, Gulshan-e-Maymar and Ahsanabad. They are not there anymore, neither the office, nor the land. The members (the one who paid installments) had many meetings with them but couldn’t recover their money. Just to save others from his mockery, his name is MAZHAR NAQVI and his current mobile number is 03332270991, he is traced with his new office somewhere in GULSHAN area.
Sunnis also have a remarkable history of fraud and dishonesty. This particular group is a stain on Shiite community. This man somehow succeeded in betraying his own sect.
Another thing, if they have to cheat, why do they use the sacred names of Islamic history? How cruel!
I usually don’t like to discuss things on the basis of faith, language or any sect. But now I feel like doing that. The reason is not hatred but the intention that all groups whether ethnic, religious or political check over the culprits in their own communities, identify them and bring them to the courts for justice. Because when others do that, it causes a lot of problems.
