some clips are mixed up i think. at 1:50 the double dekker bus has BEST written on it, which is Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport? thats Mumbai (bombay) municipal area public service company. or maybe it had a Karachi operation too.

I have no idea, but it shows how little we know. I bet this is not even in some archive. Would it not be good to show things like this on TV ?

اور پھر اس ٹرام کو ،،ٹرانسپورٹ مافیا،، نے اکھڑوا کر پھینک دیا،،
افسوس تعصب ،صوبائیت، اور فرقہ بازی ،،اس کراچی،ایشیا کے پیرس کو کھا گئی،،افسوس

Karachi As Seen By A British Soldier Sometime Between 1942 And 1947: Lively Street Scenes, Animals, Buildings, Life In Karachi Cantonment, Followed By The Journey Back Towards Britain On A Troop Ship Through The Suez Canal. The Movie Maker Obviously Developed A Liking Of Karachi And Its People.

کراچی ۱۹۸۰ کی دہای کہ شروع تک ایک پر امن شہر تھا۔ لیکن پھر م ق م کی ذلالت آ گی اور سارا امن تباہ ہو گیا۔

This is an amazing video; a peaceful and serene Karachi, befor the arrival of MQM thugs.
The miseries of our country started when America imposed evil Gen zia ul haq on pakistan who invented MQM, Mujahideen( now Taliban) , All religious sects( lashkar etc)

All of our cities were safe before Jahadi and AK44 culture were introduced by Zia-ul-Haq and I "was" his biggest fan stupid me.

I rather live in hell than ruled by foreigner forces. I know conditioned may be very bad in Karachi but we are a free nation.
