@ Syed Faisal, you have gone literally blind, Karachiites are addicted to the Doodh Pati and Parathas of Pathan Dhabas, like me and most of us consume these daily, I really doubt you have been to Karachi. I live in F.B.Area and there are atleast 10-15 dhabbas within 1 Km radius of my house. (F.B.area is the Strongest hold of MQM since its inception).
