Confirmed: Cellular Services to Remain Suspended in Karachi and Quetta Tomorrow

Rehman Baba

Cellular services are to remain suspended tomorrow in Karachi and Quetta from 10 AM to 6 PM, a highly reliable source with direct information of the matter has confirmed ProPakistani.

A source, who wanted to remain unnamed, confirmed ProPakistani that PTA has issued the directive for suspension of cellular services.

Earlier, while briefing the media, Mr. Rehman Malik said that these measures are being taken due to security reasons, which the government is increasing on the first day of Muharram.

Mr. Malik said that suspension of cellular services in Karachi and Quetta for tomorrow, along with other measures (such as ban on motorbikes), are based on credible intelligence information that hints the terrorist attacks in the cities.

Cellular industry is fearing large-scale cellular suspension during first ten days of Muharram. However, no mobile operator is speaking up against such decisions to avoid possible wrath of the government.

It merits mentioning here that government banned MNP yesterday, in addition to a directive according to which SIMs won’t be sold at retailers’ shops from December 1st, 2012.

    He also added that no one would be exempt from this ban.

    Malik said, his ministry, had re information that motorcycles would be used in terrorist attacks at public places.

          aj pabandi thi? jis din pabandi thi us din blast koi ni hua ? poora saal pabandi lagao n bike registration pe pabandi laga do … SIMPLE …

    • Zeeshan

      Not every one is riding bike for fun … If this was so necessary than there should be a curfew … so that jobs n offices dont open.. Why should a person be forced to hire a taxi or rikshaw to drop kids at school and than go to his office on rikshaw too … poorey din k 500 rupees to rikshaw pe lag jayeinge us ghareeb k.. bike pe ye sab kaam 80 rupees mai ho jate hein. He earned the bike frm his hard earned money and wo b nai chala sakta :( … Security surely is necessary, but the issue is not resolved by just banning things. Kya terrorist ko nai pata k bike pe pabandi hai ? kya wo gari nai arrange kar sakeinge for same purpose. ?
