The PPP, MQM and ANP said the ‘local and international establishment’ is hijacking the May 11 polls. The News has reported.
The members of the parties have failed to explain who are these ‘‘local and international establishment’?
These party should except their mistakes and ask for forgiveness instead of blaming on others.
It is good to see that Taliban has forced them to unite on a single issue facing them. Rehman Malik had been the interior minister of this country and miserable failed to control Taliban.
Now they are talking about ‘Join efforts’ to fight the Taliban. They had made these efforts when they were in power, Karachi would have been a peaceful city.
The terrorist attacks on the PPP, MQM and ANP are obviously condemnable and cannot be condoned yet these parties have to blame themselves for what they are facing today.
Not only during their just-completed five-year rule they failed to evolve any counter-terrorism strategy, they had also not made any serious effort to check terrorism and control the law and order situation.
I agree with Mr. Anwar Abbasi. The PPP,MQM and ANP did nothing to curb the growing extremism and militancy in the country.
The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has demanded that a new census be conducted within a month, and that work on delimitations should begin subsequently, DawnNews reported.
MQM MNA S.A. Iqbal Qadri presented the resolution on the behalf of his party at the Wednesday session of National Assembly, which was chaired by the Deputy Speaker Faisal Karim Kundi.
Their move has startled many people. I think it is a preposterous move. I had not expected it from MQM. There is no doubt census is due. However, the timing of their demand raises many questions. The present is government is about to finish is terms. How can census be conducted when new elections are near.
possible political alliance with the MQM in future, Mushahidullah said the PML-N could negotiate with the MQM for the sack of peace in the city. He said that Nawaz Sharif has not said about making alliance with the MQM in future. He said his party would make alliance with all peace-loving people. He appealed to all the opposition parties to get united on a platform to defeat the ruling PPP and its allies in the next elections in the best interest of the country.
It is too early to make this kind statement. We all know that no party will gain absolute majority in the elections. PPP has to make an alliance with MQM despite their bitter rivalry.
PMLN has not started political activities in Karachi. They are paying attention to rural areas of Sindh. It is said that they will field candidates in those areas where Punjabi people are in large numbers. This shows their ethnic bias. Why don’t they set-up offices in MQM dominated areas?
MQM’s Chief has announced that his party would conduct a referendum to know whether people wants Taliban or Quaid-e-Azam’s Pakistan?
He is of the opinion that people people should make a national policy to fight Taliban, which want to impose their ideology on Pakistani people.
Do we require a referendum to know people’s will after what Taliban has done to us? I think our leaders should discuss this matter in the parliament and formulate a policy to fight Taliban and its evil ideology.
Food has killed 455 people and destroyed crops. Leaders have failed to notice that because because they are busy in their election campaign and wasting in their energy on other issue.
People of Sindh has been badly affected by flood, but they are living in misery because of the attititude of officials and leaders. I urge NGOs to help.
Extortion cases have rises before the advent of the Ramazan. Businessmen are worried that they woul make their life miserable like last year. We all witnessed killings and extortion in the Holy month of Ramazan.
Business men are worried that this year too police are not prepared to tackle the situation. Express tribune reported:
All Karachi Tajir Ittehad Chairman Atiq Mir said it seems that extortionists do better preparation for Ramazan than the police and Rangers. “There is certainly a link between extortion and Ramazan.
Haji Fazal Kadir Sherani , president of the the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry, lamented that control’s policies and plans failed to give them any relief. Now Businessmen are moving to other countries with their money.
The party which claims to represent Karachi has failed to persuade its coalition partners to implement an effect plan for the restoration of peace in Karachi.
Senator Shahi Syed talked about changing demographics and ethnic violence in Karachi, but offered no solution.0
The Pakistan Society of London invited Senator Shahi Syed the School of Oriental and African Studies. He had a candid chat with the audience. He told his audience about the changing demographics and ethnic violence in Karachi and the crisis they have created in the economic hub of Pakistan.
He criticized MQM for their attitude. He said that MQM was not cooperating in bringing peace in the Metropolis. He tried his best to tell that the audience that he was not against anything ethnic group or “people who wore western clothing” . However, he did not over any solutions to curb the violence and make this city peaceful again.
Syed said that he was willing to talk to Altaf Hussain provided that he offered an assurance of peace. Unfortunately, Mr. Syed does not understand the dynamics of the politics of this city. Unrestricted migration has caused a lot of burden on the system of the system. People are coming here have joined criminals elements and grabbing lands and properties. They are doing killings to divert public attention from their criminal activities. No one pays attention to the people of Karachi whose flats and houses have been occupied by these migrant people.
I agree with Mr. Afaq’s statement that targeted killings have distracted public minds from the real issues. Public has forgotten in fear. What are their problems? Anyone fool can see that Karachi has descended into anarchy because of the negligence of the government and its coalition partners.
He said :
They are sitting and enjoying the [situation] because it means that no one will rise up against inflation and unemployment. If people are freed from the shackles of fear, then you would have many Tahrir Squares in Karachi.
More than 5000 people have died in Karachi because of violence. This year more than 1000 has lost their lives. People of Karachi have stopped thinking about bad economic times. They pay more attention to protecting themselves from the criminals who killing people daily. Afaq right said that people would not rise up against inflation and unemployment.
Well-known humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi has fallen ill. Pray for his health. He was admitted into the Institute of Urology and Transplantation when he fainted after seeing the bullet-ridden bodies of people who were gunned down in Turbat. His son told media that he was in stable condition. Mr. Edhi has been suffering from kidney trouble for a long time. However, for the past few months he has been under stress after intelligence agencies told him that Taliban planned to kidnap him.
I am shocked over the killings of these innocent people. They were just going to earn livelihood. My heart cries out when I see this happening in the country. I appeal to the people to pray for the country and also for my good health.
The people who are killing people are heartless. They will not listen to his please.
