Terror in Karachi

Saturday 12th May 2007

Terror in Karachi

What was starting to look like a circus now seems to be turning into a small-scale war. Ever since the country's top judge was suspended by the president, there have been endless protests and rallies against the decision. At first these were like any other protests, though on a larger scale than usual. Well and good. Justice should be upheld and not easily manipulated by those in power. But then the rally in Lahore looked more like a political one or maybe even an opulent celebration of sorts.

Now people have died. Though I haven't seen any of the news channels, those that have say that Karachi has turned into a war zone with upto 50 or 60 people dead (the official death toll stands at around 12). Most of Islamabad is peaceful, but there have been cautions against going anywhere near Blue Area. No news about it so far which is good news.

The government has started holding its own rallies, causing inconvenience to citizens and potentially endangering the lives of those attending. I hope all this is resolved soon before more destruction is caused and precious (or not so precious for the elite Pakistanis) lives are lost.

Here is the BBC article (currently top story) on the subject.

This is what we call 'hijacking the economic engine', besides that the city is paying the political debts!

The whole CJ issue has been politicized and Mr. Iftikhar is no different from those he claims fighting against. As now he is suspended, he should wait for the courts verdict in this regards rather than making this issue a havoc.

Blame the CJ for Mushy sleeping with Altaf the terrorist. MQM making this visit into a political killing field, MQM could have stayed at home. Mushy is now addicted to power. Remember what he promised at his coup? he is a totally changed hypocrite.

not 50 or 60 people.

But 30 something...
People who were shot, injured or kiled could not be transported to the hospitals or anything....

it was horrible.

war zone, surely.

People were roaming around with 2 guns (larger than themselves) each and openly shooting each other!

...sad..

On 14th May 2007, at 10:16am PKT, Atif said:

Well Albert,

Do you think that Mr. Iftikhar is different from those who you are blaming. I dont think so. If he was a sensible man he would have not allowed anyone to make this issue a political one. Shame to CJ for acting silly in this regard.

On 15th May 2007, at 04:05am PKT, Albert said:

CJ never left the airport. He did nothing, no inflammatory speeches or alike. I'm sure Altaf would have been barking over video phone.

How can you expect a CJ removed by a politician/dictator, for his political gain not become a political issue?

Would you be saying the same if in 10 years if Mushy and his new cronie friends decide to ethnically cleanse the population. Would you stay quiet in fear of politicising the cold blooded murder? get real. You would be shouting your rights under the constitution. The same thing CJ is trying to upheld.

On 15th May 2007, at 04:10am PKT, Albert said:

MQM, somehow terrorists part of the government coalition. Why are you not accusing them of politicising the visit? they came out knowing full well CJ was making a trip.

he landed at 12, MQM started their festival of killings at the same time. It was organised killings by those who run our country i.e. MQM. What a disgrace, every Pakistani should be ashamed of what happened. Who needs enemies when we kill each other.

On 15th May 2007, at 18:44pm PKT, asheyy said:

i fully agree with Albert....

On 15th May 2007, at 21:17pm PKT, Atif said:

Well Albert,

I guess you need to be realistic here. I really am amazed to see how you assumed that I am favoring MQM. It seems that you cant stand arguments without assuming something you want to.

For CJ, there are reasons for firing him and CJ is not something beyond law or someone who can not be tried for power abuse.

Very sad to see how people jump onto some astonishing assumptions rather than facts and getting personal.

On 16th May 2007, at 01:18am PKT, Albert said:

everyone knows CJ was removed becuase he was probing the government to closely. Who else attempted to find out where the missing ended up. He brought some of them to courts alive when their family thought they would never see them. Egg all over Mushy's face. Thats the problem, he doesn't want to answer himself to anyone else. He is becoming the next Zia ul Haq.

He can be tried within the constitution. Mushy is not above the law. What he did was illegal and he knows it.

What personal? if you have an opinion express it rather than dodging the questions.

On 16th May 2007, at 11:58am PKT, Atif said:

Dear Albert,

I am not a Pro musharraf or Pro mqm person. But my point is that I wasn't expecting such childish mean reaction from CJ by politicizing the issue. Wouldn't it be better if he keeps his mouth shut till the Supreme Courts verdict and then do all his dirty politics games or he doesn't trust the very same court.

On 16th May 2007, at 14:43pm PKT, Anonymous said:

My point being how can his removal, which was political not become a political event?

He has not been barking off like some politicians. he merely went to thank his supporters.

On 16th May 2007, at 18:39pm PKT, Atif said:

Went to thank his supporters in opposition political leaders cars and escort.

On 16th May 2007, at 20:38pm PKT, Anonymous said:

He didnt leave the airport. I dont think he was driving a car in the arrival lounge do you?

You sound more and more like MQM spokesman: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/6658231.stm

On 16th May 2007, at 23:07pm PKT, Atif said:

Thanks for the comments. Doesnt CJ move around with the bunch of political leaders all the time and wasnt he using PPP escort in ISB and their car fleet.

On 17th May 2007, at 03:00am PKT, Anonymous said:

I wouldn't know. Should he have driven his own car, or perhaps you wanted to be his driver?

Just in case you soon claim MQM don't own a gun or participate in any form of violence.

I AM EYE - WITNESSED OF 12 MAY
I am the Liberal person and dont involved on Politics , i have also have some clues about happening on 12MAY....... every body know about the tragedy occured on 12May and i know these setuations better, because on 12 May before the day starting i had sitting with some people they belong to MQM and we were discussing on (------Please read -- we were discussing.... here someone should be who can moniter or make check and balance on the ARMY Chief PervaizMusharaf because Pakistan is not his personal property and Pakistan is not his family business of Musharaf , he just to obay his duties and he is the servent of Pakistanees people, but here something different Musharaf being the servent of country, on public demand he deny to leave the job of presedent of Pakistan. Its meaning Owner(Pakistanees) ordering to servent to get-fired but servent encountering to Owner....ha ha ha yel thats amazing and amuzig.-----) this was the topic on which we are discussing. During discussion while we sitting in a Tea hotel meanwhile two boys came into tea-shop armed with REPEATOR and second one armed with big gun that is unknown to me . They both boys sat at Tea-shop situated near to MQM offices. i just glanced them and tried to identified them and they both came from the office of MQM that is near from this Tea-Shop that can been seen in the view from Tea-shop, then i observed some more boys sitting outside just beside the office of MQM . then i saw a very young innocent boy, his height was may be hardly 4 feet having arms, wearing cap, and amusing thing was that his height was equal to the size of gun that he had in his hand, standing and patroling just near the office of MQM. For a moment i got afraid because may be he made air-fire so that can be dangerious due to the mistake of target shot. At that time i supposed that may be they people doing same for the security of their office of MQM But i did not knew that what would be going to happen at morning . when the time we were leaving to home it was about 2 'O Clock at AM that time they people who belong to MQM they strictly advised me to not go to court at morning and sured me the massacre will be happen in the morning, i supposed it they are making joke because there was no expection to happen this massacre.

Here i concluded two things . One is that why they people advised me who was sitting with me on that night, to dont go to court at morning it's meaning they all knew it that happen on 12 MAY and that all was preplained ,

Second thing is that why their people, belong to MQM, were standing out side of the office of MQM and checking their weapons .........So i dont know why the Home Advisor of MQM Waseem Akhter stated on Aoth in a TV show and compleately denied all about that happened on 12 May its meaning he is vary lean and Layer man and BABER Ghoree also denied all matters that occured on 12MAY ......WHY the member of MQM's office was preparing for action with full armed at that night just before 12MAY then what game they they were deciding on that night to play at morning with innocent people of Karachi.
That is SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull for all the leaders of MQM.


LEADERSHIP OF MQM
i know all and even all Pakistanees know the faces of the leaders of MQM i have seen on different shows in TV programes regarding 12MAY i say all people know that how clearle and shamefully and cleverly and malafiedly, cruelly and brutally the leaders of MQM denying and opposing that blunder they have done , even on their talking anybody have seen their faces. Such as WASEEM AKHTER(home adviser) BABER GHOREE , their faces dont support their talkings and i would like to say all leadership of MQM are corrupt, they are not deserved for governing the city management. Even i have listen to governer Ishrat Abad in his speech and i say about him he has impressive personality and literate personbut what he has done wrong in the past time in politics i dont know but remaining leaders including ALTAF HUSSAIN, Waseem Akhter and Baber Ghoree all are indecent and illiterate persons. So i ask the MQM that ..... Dont they have good leadership like PERVAIZ MUSHARAF, IMRAN KHAN, Shoukat Aziz, Ishrat Abad, Chief Justice Ifthakhar M. Ch., Naeem Bukhari, Hakeem-Saeed-shaheed, I dont know theirs political practices but they all are literate and decent people.

That is SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull SHAMEfull for all the leaders of MQM. Even if ALTAF HUSSAIN, Waseem Akhter and Baber Ghoree are not literate and decent persons eventhen at least they do the good political practices such as .............. they should take lesson from Mr ABDUL SATTAR EDHI . i know Mr. Edhi is not literate person but doing good and humanitarian practices.......i think this is good way of life. Any man should have one good thing , (1)good practices OR (2)good appearence and decent personality, but in ALTAF HUSSAIN, Waseem Akhter and Baber Ghoree they dont have any one good thing among two (1) good practices OR (2) good appearence and decent personality.

The Pakistani politics is in turmoil at the moment and it is not new era. These elected people have looted wealth from Pakistan and now creating trouble for Musharraf, who is the best in the current circumstances. I have been observing Pakistani politics since October last year and also reading world renowned analyst analysis. I am sorry to say that in spite of the fact that you are in Pakistan you don’t know things or if know want to manipulate because of your Punjabi ethnic background. There are lots of things that have been happening from last one year. From NRO formation, Benazir arrival, bomb blast in Karachi, Nawaz Sharif arrival then Benazir assassination in December and then Zardari arrival, everything were planned. I was in Karachi, when Benazir was assassinated and have watched who have looted people and creating law and order situation in Karachi. I think you might not be agree with me that foreign agencies and some Punjabi & Pakhtoon people were involved in these law & order conditions, wanted to destabilise the country and also wanted to increase the vote bank of Nawaz Sharif. Nawaz Sharif is playing very dirty politics and on the back of judges wants to get rid of Musharraf. He is very bad man; he wants to fulfil his personal motives rather national interest, he got the mandate from lota people those don’t have any loyalty with any party. I am sorry to say that peoples in Punjab are very racist against Karachiites and it has been shown by your stupid Nawaz Sharif.

Anyway, I don’t belong to any political party but have been constantly watching news and analysis from world renowned political analyst. As far as Benazir is concerned, her own policies and actions have taken her own life. You might have read lots of conspiracies theories regarding her assassination but everyone know that who has killed her. It is not establishment; there are some other people involved. Now Nawaz Sharif is planning to destabilise Pakistan to get rid of Musharraf. I pray to God that his dream never fulfil. He is playing game using Zardari’s back, but Zardari has so far handled him very tactfully because he fully knows the interest of Nawaz Sharif. I think PPP & MQM is the only parties where there are not lota policies. People in Sindh do trust MQM and PPP. Do you know who created rift between Amin Fahim and Zardari, it is Nawaz Sharif who wants to disintegrate PPP and increase his vote bank in the future. I can’t understand why Punjabi wants PM from Punjab not from Sindh, do you know why because it is racism against muhajir’s, against Sindhi’s and against Musharraf. Punjabi don’t want Pakistan they are more interested in Punjabistan, that’s the reason they were creating rift, Nawaz Sharif is in the front line to destroy Pakistan. I request all Pakistanis to don’t accept Nawaz dirty tactics, he is evil man and I am sure that God will give him a lesson and he will pay the price of his bad deeds.

MQM is the only party who have been constantly increasing seats in parliament. I think Nawaz have reservations from MQM because he has personal motives and interests. Only Punjabis have got reservations from MQM not any other political party. I am sure that Nawaz Sharif will not get success in his evil plans. Allah blesses Pakistan and saves from evil and bad people.

I hope that your eyes are open now and can see the black and white of Nawaz Sharif. Please support genuine leaders not evil.

i want answers of my questions, why Cj Chodhry Iftekhar taken oth under Musharaf PCO?, why he protected Musharaf's act after 1999? coz of his black income that were attracted on that paricular time. now i think Nawaz Sharif (Khinzeer) is offering much better salary to Iftekhar Ch. and all we know that how Nawaz sharif purchased few Political News channels sp. Geo News, AAj TV and some others. we all Pakistanis know Geo anchors Hamid meer(Nawaz sharif's Pitthoo) and Kamran Khan have sold their honesty to Nawaz sharif and got lot of money from him. if PPP & ANP are now supportimg MQM's stand on Judges issue after 2008 election and PPP anf ANP also are not intrusted to disturbe Musharaf and not allowing to Iftekhar(a PCO Judge) to restore. PPP and ANP is also saying that dont politicies the judges issue.
Now tell me, if all they have taken u turn on thier policies so who was behind on 12 may, 08 incident y these parties played a drama on 12 may with PML N who financed all this drama and wrote a script fpr this drama.
Conclusion, MQM is the only Party who takes step one time and always keep on it but dont play any drama or dont take any U turn like PPP and ANP have taken. it means that all the story of 12 may has written and financed by PML -N with co production of PPP,ANP and PCO judge IFtekhar ch and co.
i would like to one more thing that after incident of 12 may,2007 MQM has won more seats in NA and PA in the election of 2008 bcoz peoples were always with MQM, are with MQM and will be with MQM.
"who is straight forward get lots of trouble in his life" so MQM is also doing same and always supports truth.

A true pakistani
