  1. What to say about these bullshit things. What a fucking day, hundreds child, younger are killed at that ass hole day.

  2. We have many other cultural festivals for celebrations.I wonder how can normal human beings put their lives and lives of those who are not even involved in the event at risk for the sake of FUN. If people can not live without kite flying,they can at least buy harmless “Dors”.Has anyone thought that how many homes have been ruined just for using the killer dors?
    Anyone one could be a victim.It is extremely brutal.

  3. A very simple question for you. Would you like to through your money? I am sure your answer will b “NO”. Flying Kites is not a part of our culture. This is not our festivel.Hats off to new government who took initiative and ban such a “Killing Festival”.

  4. i think the kite fetival is a one of those that think about its a enjoy and comfertness but its not its open unwsement

  5. Basant and festivals like this, have to be enjoyed pleasently. Coz life is a short time. and we face alooooot of hardships and tragidies, but on day like basant v forget all that tentions and enjoy our day.

    keep smiling. ….. love u all.

  6. Idiot people,kite flying off course is a subcontinent culture and we should be proud of it that we 2 bit a part of that culture.What is an Islamic culture is an important discussion to address.Since, past few centuries we Muslims have been hijacked by illiterate mullahs and their conspiracies by indulging the people with ARABS culture that is not an Islamic culture ,too,.Before coming to Islam ,Indian subcontinent was a rich cultured land including present Pakistani areas ,so it never means that after turning to Islam we should loose our cultural boundaries by sticking with ARABIAN culture that has spoiled the whole world Muslims and their image.In fact Arabian culture is a narrow culture that has no place for women to live that is evident from the 1st time decision in history of Saudi Arabia that they could allow women to drive a car.Where it is written in Koran and other Hadiths to do so.These are the same things that we have learned from them that has deteriorated the image of Islam in all over the world. Actually Islam is a religion that is based on human nature without interfering its cultural boundaries (the realm of living things in their natural state,esp. the outdoors.).
