Violence Erupts in Pakistan’s Business Capital Karachi-

Posted: March 11, 2011 in News and Views

Different sources of media have reported eruption of violence in Karachi which has caused death of civilians and have created the environment of fear, insecurity and harrasment among business community and peaceful citizens.











Media reports say six people have been killed in different incident in different parts of the city including one leaders of a religious outfit. According to a reputed national TV SAMA the recent incident occurred in Korangi-2.5, where Mehmood Shah, Amir of Jamaat Ahle Sunnat Korangi was shot down. Earlier, two people were gunned down in firing incidents by unidentified miscreants in Liyari areas of Kalri and Baghdadi. Two other people were shot dead in Eidgah area. A man, Muhammed Aziz was killed in firing incident in Korangi-5 and another man Ahsan Abbas was gunned down in Orangi Town. Two other people sustained injuries in the incidents. Karachi, once, the business capital of Pakistan and popular as ‘city of light’ where once fragnance, smiles, literary gathering were common sight, now, one can only see tear gas, shelling, bullets, dead bodies and rule of fear everywhere. Government always blame terrorist or indicates the hand of outsider in it. Folowed by statements that it would take measures. Nobody knows when these measures will be taken and what these measures would be.

What has gone wrong with this beautiful city of Pakistan. Where every time, violence erupts and costs lives of  innocent civilians. Every time, vehicles banks and offices are burnt, education institutions are closed, examinations are postponed. Busniss capital of Pakistan whose stock exchange can not do a smooth business, patients can not reach hospital, people can not go out to breath in fresh air. Why Government does not take action? Why Sindh Chief Minsiter is silent? Why Interior Minister does not respond to the situation? Why Police Chief does not act? Karachi must be remembering her old days and citizens who owned her, loved her and took responsibility of her beauty and security. Today, Karachi seems angry and sad at people who are aloof, violent and irresponisble.
