    Thumbs down Looters at Shoba bazar Peshawar

    I am posting this thread as a warning for all non-pushto speaking guys who want to get their vehicles repaired at Shoba bazar Peshawar.
    I went to Peshawar yesterday as my father had some official work there. On motorway my car (Suzuki Khyber) was not accelerating smoothly so after dropping my dad at an office in Peshawar, I started searching for some tuning workshop. A taxi driver suggested me to go to Shoba Bazar Peshawar and told me that it is a big bazar having lot of workshops.
    I went to Shoba bazar. There is a ticket of 20 Rs entering Shoba Bazar as if it is some kind of a circus. There was mechanic there with 4,5 junior mechanics. I told him the problem. He cleaned the plugs with sandpaper and installed them back. Then he tuned the CNG kit by rotating that screw.
    He asked me that your car needs this, your cars needs that. I told him that I am coming from Rawalpindi and I don't have money to spend on these things. Only tuning was required, now tell me the money. He said ok wait.
    He came after 15 minutes and handed me the bill. It was 3750 Rs.
    I said it is not my car's bill. He said no, its yours. When I saw it, it had a long list of parts like engine foundations, gear oil, axle seal, gear lever seal, and many more parts. I said that these parts are not installed in my car. He said we have installed them in your car. I said how on earth is it possible, I kept standing near the bonnet during all this time. You have just cleaned the sparking plugs. I wasn't away even for a second. He called 7,8 other pathans and they all said that we have seen him installing those parts in your car. All of them were speaking pushto with each other and I couldn't understand them.
    I said that I don't have money and you have not installed a single part in my car, neither I have asked you to put any part in my car. He said ok if you don't have money then we are going to open up your engine and take our parts back. There was no one to take my side there. I was all alone in dishonest pathans. There was no police man from whom I could seek help.
    Then 4 pathans sat in my car and ask me to drive. They said lets go to any ATM. I got out of the car as I knew they are planning to rob me.
    In the end I gave them all the money I had i.e 1000 Rs. I told them that I am a student and I don't have money. They looked into my wallet and seeing it empty, they let me go.

    @ Brother PUNK ...

    PakWheels is a good forum for all of us, the car enthusiasts, where we can discuss just about every issue.

    I am in total favour of non-judgmental outlook. As I expressed earlier, everyone has a birth right to adopt a lifestyle of his liking.

    I just expressed my opinion that I feel uncomfortable with slang. My opinion should not be considered judgmental at all. I have a right to feel comfortable or otherwise with something.

    I hope my views will be taken in good spirit.

    i feel very sorry for all that happened to u at shobha bazaar. i also feel very grateful to u that u have provided us with a true picture of that area. i was thinking of going to peshawer to buy engine for suzuki jimny. now i would never ever go to peshawer shobha bazaar for any purpose. my cousin went to peshawer from lahore to buy truck. the price settled was Rs. twenty two lacs. he gave ten lacs as advance. the pathan seller of truck told him to come after 3 days to get delivery. when he again went to get delivery the pathan went back on his words and said he wanted twenty six lacs for the truck. my cousin asked back his advance but he refused and said we will call a jirga of pious pathans who will decide. the jirga of 5 pathans decided that in accordance with sharia the buyer will have to pay twenty five lacs or his advance shall be forfeited. therefore my cousin had to pay 25 lacs and get the delivery of truck instead of 22 lacs which was decided at the time of token money of 10 lacs. there are some other examples also. so unless u have a loyal pathan freind involved in a deal never do any deal by yourself. this is the lesson of this thread.

    Since we are at the topic of being better human beings :-), i think the pakwheelers should start adopting habits that are aimed towards a better society, like not installing HIDs on high beams and being ashamed of such idiotic ideas instead of being proud that "I am such an idoit". There should be a code of ethical conduct to be followed if the pakwheels sticker is to be displayed at your ride........ we can bring about a change if there is an intention.....
    Apart from pakwheels, my blogs can be also be viewed at http://tajziat.blogspot.com/

    simlilar incident with me aswell ,

    went to murree a couple of years back , hired a private car to take us around the whole area , the settlement was done for 2500Rs , where he was required to take us places like ayyubia , patriyata , etc..

    he asked 1500rs , advance , on reaching patriyata , we gave it , and we were out to roam.

    when we came back , he was nowhere to be found , waited a long time. NO sign.
    we let it go , hire another car and moved around.

    NOw , comes the worst part...

    at night , That person with a whole gang of 4 people is waiting for us at the MALL road , surround us , and demand us to pay 3000 more.
    obviously i dint , but decided to take help from POLICE 15. which was located right in front.

    When we reached there , guess what , Police took their side too , and i had a very harsh argument with him , and he was about to lock me up or something , so i walked out the same typical style, a call from GHQ islamabad . and he let us go.

    This country is all set towards its fate now it seems , destruction.
    men who reject to be ruled by the law of God , are ruled by the law of tyrants .

    Its really sad.But the matter is not of Pathans,Punjabis,Sindhis,Balochis etc....It can happen with one anywhere in this country.Because Pakistan has got a lot of dishonest people everywhere regardless of ethnicity.I never do mechanical or other work in Shoba.And if I go there to buy something, I dont even leave my car alone in parking in Shoba and if I have nobody with me then I park my car somewhere else in a safer place.Once I parked car alone there and when I came back, my right side backview mirror was taken away by somebody.And I do not go away from my car even if I take car to Toyota workshops.I ask the mechanic about each and every thing which he opens or wants to replace.As long as there is not a genuine reason for replacement of a part, I do not agree with the mechanic.

    Wow... I thought all this happens only in Karachi at Sohrab Goat, Qayidabad etc etc. We drove from KHI to LHR, ISB and all the way to Nathiagalli last year and it was a good experience. But i guess we were just lucky to not have gotten in to any car trouble. We were however stopped near Dadu (Sindh) by fake cops who took 500 bucks. But i think this stuff goes on everywhere. We should just pray that we don't run in to such thugs.
