Karachi Target Killing: Who is Responsible?By Salman Mugsi • Jun 9th, 2009 • Category: Politics • 52 Comments
In just last seven days in the city of Quaid, more than 40 people have been killed by the “un-identified” gun men, who come hit and run. The dead belong to various parties including MQM, ANP, Jamat-e-Islami, PML(N), PPP and the Tehrik Sunnat.
When the people are being picked and killed in various parts of the Karachi, Zulfikar Mirza from the Sindh government says that even the American police couldn’t stop the target killing in Karachi. Zulfikar Mirza knows that who is doing what to whom, but he also knows that if he even starts mentioning the culprits, his coalition government would crumble.
The target killing in Karachi is just because of the lawlessness and the inability of the security insitutions to have their writ. All the parties in Karachi have their own areas and they are busy in settling the scores and to have their hegemony where they could. Nobody is innocent and everybody is victim in Karachi right now. Millions and millions of people of Karachi are simply sheep.
