    • 04:15pm Faisalabad

    • 06:45pm Stopped at Babusar Top/Pass
      • It was very cold up there and we also had to offer Asir Prayers because time was running out.

Two cups of hot tea under a makeshift Tea Shop made out from a “Choldari” Tent was a blessing at that time Smile
    • 07:10pm Exit Babusar Top/Pass
    • 09:00pm Stopped at Chillas
      • We come to know that the main route in and out of Chillas is not safe. And there were several incidents of looting vehicles and passengers. On multiple complaints, government deployed police mobiles which now escort people coming in and going out of Chillas. All vehicles are stopped at police check post and after every hour, a police mobile escort the caravan of vehicles safely to the police check post on the other end. From there vehicles carry on by themselves as the route is considered safe after that.
    • 10:30pm Exit Chillas and travelled on Karakoram Highway (KKH)
  • Mon, 18-Jul-11
    • 01:00am Stopped at Raikot – Camped Overnight @ Shangrilla Park’s Lawn – [ SlideshowVideo ]
      • Here, we had to close our deal with the driver, whom we hired from Naran, because the people of Raikot do not allow vehicles other than their own to travel between Raikot and Fairy Meadows. When I inquired about the reason, they said that the villagers of Raikot build the pathway by themselves and therefore we will not allow any other to benefit from the transportation business on that road.
    • 06:15am Exit Raikot and towards Fairy Meadows – [ Slideshow ]
      • We had to pay PKR 5000 for the round trip on 4x4 jeep from Raikot to Trekking Start Point towards Fairy Meadows and back.
    • 07:30am Stopped at Trekking Start Point towards Fairy Meadows
      • Unfortunately, we met a mudslide in between which washed away the path created for 4x4 Jeeps and Trekkers. There was an incomplete wooden bridge structure at the same site which suggests the frequent spill of the mud slide from that junction point of the two mountains. We waited for some time, on request of our driver Musa khan who said that the villagers will fill the gap with large blocks soon and we would be able to cross it then. But the mudslide continues making things difficult for the villagers waiting for the mudslide to stop, so they can begin filling the gap.
      • So, after waiting for some time, we had to return. We also noticed visitors on the other side of the pathway waiting to cross the damaged path for their exit.
    • 09:55am Exit from Trekking Start Point towards Fairy Meadows
    • 10:55am Exit Raikot and towards Astore Valley
    • 01:30pm Stopped at Astore Valley – [ SlideshowVideo ]
      • Astore Valley turns out to be one of the favorite spots of our tour. It was all lush green with great scenic views. People were friendly and welcoming. Locals said that since the disturbance started on the Swat side, people have started coming to this area more and tourism has started to pick up momentum here.
    • 05:00pm Exit Astore Valley
    • 06:00pm Stopped at Trekking Start Point towards Rama Lake – [ Video ]
    • 06:50pm Rama Lake
      • Unfortunately we were unable to capture snaps or videos of this lake, because we reach there after Maghrib and it was too dark for camera to capture some thing appealing. I guess, at Rama Lake, we were closest to the Nanga Parbat Mountain, over looking the lake. Very beautiful!
    • 07:30pm Back to Trekking Start Point towards Rama Lake
    • 08:30pm Back to Astore Valley – Overnight Stay
  • Tue, 19-Jul-11
    • 09:25am Exit Astore Valley and towards Deosai National Park
    • 01:00pm Stopped at Shausar Lake in Deosai National Park – [ SlideshowVideo ]

  • Wed, 20-Jul-11
    • 06:35am Exit Skardu – [ SlideshowVideo ]
      • Upper Katchura Lake
        • Upper Katchura Lake is far more beautiful and in its natural condition as appose to all-famous Shangrilla Resort Lake or Lower Katchura Lake. This lake is more lively with natural fauna and flora.
      • Lower Katchura Lake / Shangrilla Resorts
    • 11:05am Back to Skardu
    • 11:20am Exit Skardu
    • 06:35pm Stopped at Gilgit – [ SlideshowVideo ]
    • 07:30pm Exit Gilgit
  • Thu, 21-Jul-11
    • 01:30am Stopped at Aliabad, Hunza – Overnight Stay
    • 08:00am Exit Aliabad, Hunza – [ Slideshow ]
    • 09:00am Stopped at Attabad Lake – [ SlideshowVideo ]
      • Local people were very angry and concerned about the situation at Attabad Lake because several villages has been drowned with their homes and properties . Although administration has created a spillway to maintain the current level of the lake, but the slow work pace clearly shows the unwillingness of the administration to clear the lake completely. There were rumors among the local that government is planning to build a dam over here which means they will never be able to see their homes, properties, etc again.
      • This lake has also became a bottle neck for on going construction work on KKH and locals said that the work on this part of the KKH has been stopped by the contractor because of this lake formation. And, as the rumors goes, there was a conspiracy theory that US/India is somehow involved in this incident to block the construction work on KKH to de-link this only vital land route between Pakistan and China.
      • The life was already very hard on locals due to un availability of necessary infrastructure. And then, we have this incident, and on top of it the lack of commitment and willingness of the administration. This is one more example of why Local Government should be the way to go forward and why MPAs and MNAs should be dumped away.
    • 10:10am Boat Start Attabad Lake
    • 11:40am Boat End at Hussaini
    • 11:55am Exit Hussaini
    • 02:30pm Stopped at Sost – Overnight Stay
      • Sost is the last border town towards Pak-China border. As locals said, before the floods and Attabad Lake incident, KKH was in a much better shape and Chinese people from bordering towns used to visit Sost for trade and transport. But these days this town is deserted and we didn’t saw any Chinese people except those working on KKH.
  • Fri, 22-Jul-11
    • 08:15am Exit Sost
      • On this section of the KKH, the reconstruction work was on full swing and we did travelled over the newly metaled portions of the KKH. There were friendship tunnels in between and patches high concreted walls on both side of the KKH to prevent it from land sliding, which seems to be a very common phenomena there.

Helping Hand Case Completed: Naeem Ahmed, Mosquito Net Weaver

This case was actually completed almost a month ago, but because of my extremely busy schedule, I was not able to update you guys about it. I emailed you all, following about this case on 6th of June 2011:

Assalam o Alaikum All,

I want to discuss the case of a needy person who used to sell Mosquito Nets in various localities in Karachi City.

Naeem Ahmed s/o Habib Ahmed
Age - 50 or so
CNIC# 42201-1495016-1
Shah Latif Colony, near Bhains Colony (See
exact location in map here)

Residence Owner - Mother
Number of Brothers - 3 (all married)
Number of Sisters - 5 (all married)
Eldest of all and residing with his family on the pent house portion on first floor of the house (made from aluminum sheets and have 3 rooms in all)
Dependents - Wife, a Daughter (14yrs), 2 Sons (10yrs & 6yrs) - all children are school going (His niece has taken the responsibility of all educational expenses)

Almost a year ago, when Naeem was out on the roads of New Karachi, selling Mosquito Nets, some robbers intercept him and demanded all valuables, he tried to explain them that he is very poor and has to feed his wife and three children, but instead of listening his plea, they attacked him with knives and seriously injured him. He remain hospitalized for almost 3 months, he showed me the deep cuts (at least 3) in his abdomen. He has mashaAllah recovered fully but he can not carry too much load now. Alhamdolilah, he is willing to work to earn for the livelihood for himself and his family.

Mosquito Net price - PKR 25 per Meter
For one Double Bed Mosquito Net:
8 Meters of Mosquito Net
Cloth worth of PKR 60
Threads & Misc
Total Cost = PKR ~275
Single Bed Mosquito Net - Total Cost - ~ PKR 150

Naeem used to buy raw material for the Mosquito Nets from Boulten Market and can sell almost 20 - 30 Nets on a daily basis. We need to make arrangements for at least 60 Mosquito Nets, so that he can go out with 30 nets to sell while his wife and other female workers of the neighborhood can prepare another 30 to be sold next day. And we also need to arrange some initial monetary support to cover his most urgent needs so that they can make both ends meet until his daily sales generate enough to feed his family inshaAllah. For this we need to arrange at least PKR 30,000. (They are eligible of Zakat donations.)

You can submit your donations directly to my bank account:

Bank - MCB
Branch - Mehdi Towers
Account Number - 0404925331000032
Account Title - Syed Muhammad Humayun

Or you can drop it either at my home or office. Please call to coordinate accordingly.

Wassalam,

Alhamdolilah we were able to collect PKR 34,700 and helped him and his family for a month’s ration, raw material for net weaving and follow up ramazan support.

Naeem turns out to be a hardworking and honest man and is mashAllah not only supporting his family but also helping poor neighborhoods and females working for him with as much help as he can extend.

Helping Hand Required: Setup Vegetable Push Cart

11-Aug-2011 VERIFICATION OF THE CASE – As mentioned by Faisal in the comments of this post, a couple of other people showed concern regarding this case, as the family belongs to Mujahid Colony, North Nazimabad #4. They have experience frauds in one or more cases from the same area and have advised to investigate the case thoroughly to verify if they are indeed genuine needy people. I tried my best to cross verify and here are my findings:

  1. I talked to the doctor, Dr. Syed Mansoor Ali (available in Hanif Hospital, near Board Office during 4:00pm to 6:00pm in Ramazan; +923212019249), who treated the patient, the account mentioned by the boy (Hamza) and his father (Abdullah Nasir) was indeed correct with a bit of exaggeration of the total amount being spent on the treatment and medicines overall.
  2. I talked to Qari saheb of nearby Khairul Amal Mosque, he said he didn’t know Abdullah Nasir. But, he referred me to another acquaintance of his, Muhammad Nasir Baig (+923333145387), who lives in the same locality and also run a general store by the name Fazal Store. This store is very close to Khairul Amal Mosque and is on the main road. Just behind that store is the residence of Mr Muhammad Nasir Baig.
  3. I met Nasir Baig sahab, and he is also of the opinion that the residents of Mujahid Colony are a fraud and have plundered on the name of charity, building mosques and fake businesses. But, he also agree that not all people are alike and there might be genuine cases as well because the residents of Mujahid Colony are very poor for sure. Fortunately Mr Nasir sahab has been associated with the Zakat and Usher investigation department and knows the intricacies of investigating needy people cases for Zakat and Khairat disbursements. I ask Abdullah Nasir to meet Nasir Baig sahab and later I called Nasir sahab to get his opinion. He said that with the investigation done so far, this case seems to be a genuine one, provided the medical treatment record also being confirmed from dr sahab.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

There’s a very poor family (of 8 - Father, Mother, 3 Sons and 3 Daughters) living in Nazimabad #4, Mujahid Colony on a rented house. Father had a serious accident a month ago fracturing his leg. He used to sell vegetables on a push cart. While the elder son, aged 16, used to sell stationary items on Tariq Road. The family has exhausted all their resources in the treatment of fractured leg. They even sold the push cart and other personal belongings. They also got loan from the near and dear ones. The doctors have prescribed 4 months rest to the patient and the family has now nothing left. They are even unable to feed themselves now. With no ration for one time’s meal, the elder son was forced, to go out for help.

None of the children goes to school, they never admitted because of their poor condition. The elder son is willing to earn for his family, but he didn’t have resources to start selling stationary again or setup a vegetable push cart again.

A rough estimate of what minimum we can do to help this family is as follows:

Ration for one month – PKR 10k
2nd hand Push Cart / Weights / Balance – ~PKR 6k
Vegetables – ~PKR 4k

TOTAL FUNDS required – PKR 20k

You can either donate directly via my bank account below or in person by calling me @ +923218707783

Bank - MCB
Branch - Mehdi Towers
Account Number - 0404925331000032
Account Title - Syed Muhammad Humayun

Once we have done above, the boy will inshaAllah, under the guidance of his father, will start generating daily income to support his basic family needs. We can than focus on getting their children admitted to some free/charity school nearby or any other school, if we can support them by arranging fees/books/copies/bags/uniforms/etc. Please share any information/idea that would help them to kick start their basic education.

Please note that ration requirement is on URGENT BASIS, as this is the most demanding need of the time for them.

Note – Family is eligible for Zakat donations as well

My friend met with patient’s uncle (Mamoo), Irfan Hussain today (0300-2162973) @ his neighborhood mosque in Shah Faisal. As per my friend, Imam sahab of the mosque does not allow any one to announce for charity or donation in the mosque without proper investigation and this case Imam sahab after verifying the case, did allow patient’s uncle for the announcement. My friend himself view the following documents and took snaps of them:

But, later her health deteriorated and then she was treated at Agha Khan Hospital for the second time costing around 9.5 lacs.
