    Default ~~ Why do we pay OWN??? ~~

    I visited a wedding party at Shehnai Lawn near Askari/ Dalmia. Shehnai lawn is located on a little cliff which is right behind Honda Drive-in. I was surprised to see from there that Honda Drive-in was packed with latest City & Civics, not only the showroom, but the workshop's entire ground floor, first floor and the roof was packed with hondas. one thing more surprising was that a big portion of Shehnai lawn's parking was also packed with city and civics. there were 2 guards to look after the unregistered vehicles. i dont understand why do they gave longer delivery times when they dont even have space to park the cars. production seems adequate enough.

    Then after few days i went to Awami Markaz which is right next to Toyota Central Motors. Same thing i saw there too, Corollas and cuores were packed not only inside but on the roof as well as the plot besides Toyota motors and you wont beleive there were cars parked all along the railway line that runs behind the showroom.

    If there is so much capacity to produce the cars why arent they delivered??? i dont see cars being delivered so frequently as their quantity appears in the showroom.. the question is "if its an artificial shortage, being created by the manufacturers, and that there are enough vehicles available, WHY DO WE PAY OWN????

    ----------------PLEASE STOP PAYING OWN---------------
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    My dear Storm Bhai

    An accused even in developed countries does not get the V.V.I.P treatment.


    The last sentence from you has disappointed me brother, still I will advice you as your brother not to say them in public as they will result in something very bad. I hope you got my point brother.


    thanks

    "Anyone guilty of paying "own" is proving how little he knows about economics, how little he cares about the economy of the country, and how little his brain is."

    ^ ^ I can't f**in believe it, there actually are people who can think beyond the average tom, harry and dick (head) .

    Well said...

    So much money to pay own for bloody cars, yet giving away a small amount in donations to help circulate that cash seems like a hefty task and you fellas claim to be Muslims in an Islamic state, congratufuckinlations.
    Sure go buy a car on lease.. pity you can't buy a sense of discipline to drive it FooL!

    i remember when i was looking for a car earlier this year, i visited Kia Sherwani Motors. At that time the production of Kia Classic was stopped already and there was just 1 silver colored SX version available for which they were asking a 65,000/- OWN!!!!!!! how come a car which struggles to get sales can claim such a high OWN... sounds silly but showroom persons were demanding it.

    Similarly when i went to Chevrolet City Motors to inquire about JOY, there was a last red color 800cc exclusive available for which they were asking 55,000 OWN.... on the other hand JOY was available with zero own and delivery was within 3 days!!!!! just think who the hell would pay a 55,000 OWN for a discontinued car when Joy was available with no own.

    It has become compulsory for every car manufacturer to demand premium even on their neglected cars... in US as mentioned giving premium for Hummer can be justified, but how can we justify a hefty OWN on cars like alto, mehran, cuore etc

    @usmanansari

    let me correct one thing, its not the manufacturer who demands own. its the dealer who is in this business. he demands own just for keeping car. u can get car from showroom without own by contacting directly the owner. see papers people claim zero meter show room delivery, they are investors and when a car value goes down they try to withdraw their investment. its common here.

    Its not ON its OWN like owning a car and pay the price.

    owner needs to own the car by paying own from his own expense. :p

    @enigma
    sorry to disappoint you but if someone is falsely accused due to corrupt police trying to jump through a few hoops to please a bunch of "high-ups" they would react the same as me. Anyways i don't need to justify my behaviour or responses, when it happens to you i'll ask you how you feel.

    As for my last comment, it's called freedom of speech and the law is bound to protect me and my rights.

    What happened to you, please describe in detail. Freedom of Speech is mentioned in The Constitution of Pakistan 1973, as the fundamental right. But freedom of speech is one thing while libel and slander another.

    OWN, Premium whatever **** you call it is haram, there is no justification to make it halal, like i needed the car immediately, I could not block the money for 8 monts, stuff etc.

    Why?

    Because creating artificial shortages by hoarding things to sell them at higher profits is haram in Islam. It also falls in bribery category. So those who are selling cars at a higher prices and those who are buying them, I can only pray for them that Allah forgives them and show them the right path).

    BTW there is no shortage of car production in the country, because cars are readily available on payment of haram money. Had there been shortage of cars against demand, then there would have been no cars available even on premium.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    As Muslims we should not lead fellow Muslims to indulge in corrupt practices.

    Since this topic has restarted I will put in my tuppeny's worth. Let us all start a campaign for consumer resistance not only against OWWWN but also against overpricing of vehicles.

    very well said sir.

    @all
    There is nothign we can do, even if 99.9% of us resist "own" it'll still be those idiotic 0.01% wo will ruin it for everybody,... and that's only down to a lack of education, a huge ego & new money.

    @humy said: "Allah gave us a brain, we can all decide for ourselves... its not you who will answer for an OWN sin of someone else."

    Very true Allah, the Almighty, has given brain to all humans and so he has also given it to animals.

    Second thing, true that I will not be held accountable for the sin of someone else...PROVIIDED...I was not there when it was happening....If it was happening and I was there, it is my Islamic duty to do something to stop it, if I cannot stop it, I should say it with my tongue that it is a bad thing happening.....and if I am compelled to keep my mouth shut....at least I should say it in my heart and think that it is bad....this is the least degree of faith of Iman.

    So ask you brain these questions. If you get any answers. If I am wrong...I will take back my words/advice.
