Officials said the cause of the Karachi fire was not yet known but Rauf Siddiqi, the industry minister for Sindh province, said the factory owner was under investigation for negligence.

“We have ordered an inquiry into how the fire erupted and why proper emergency exits were not provided at the factory so that the workers could escape,” Siddiqi said.

EOBI Director General Investment Wahid Khursheed expressed his inability to get the shops vacated due to interference and influence of the MQM and the matter had now reached the sector in-charge of the political party, who was a huge hurdle in the recovery of rent.

Everyone loves to hit at MQM. He should ask the area police to kick the occupants out and call them to courts. Why are police officers enable to initiate against the culprit. They should arrest peopel try to stop them from doing their work.

People who join police force know the risk associated with their jobs. If they fear then they should be fired and new people should be hired in their place. The problem in Karachi is that police officers from outside Karachi give big bribes to transfer themselves here to make money. They have found it easy to blame MQM to hide their ineffeciency.

Commentary: MQM leader thinks party activists are being killed because of party chief Altaf Hussain’s stance on sectarian killings

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Raza Haroon has linked the recent spate of murders of party activists to party chief Altaf Hussain’s recent statement opposing sectarianism and claims that activists are being killed because of the stance the party has taken.

He has no evidence to suggest his assertion. It is still not clear that who is killing shias in Baluchistan and other parts of the country. However, it is the responsibility of the Intelligence agencies to find the culprits as soon as possible. Shia Killings are giving a bad name to our country. It will divide country along sectarian lines.
