I am amazed how the events of target killing in Karachi have gone unnoticed, especially in the last 1 week. On a daily basis sitting in Rawalpindi, one can only hear that 5 activists from(—–) party and 3 activists(—) from that party have left the world. But this is not some thing new, violence is always present in Karachi in one form or the other. Sometime the massacre is blamed on political grounds(12 May 2007) and when it matters, the simple culprit we get is the land mafia.
Though PM Gillani did wake up and was in the city yesterday, there is an overwhelming appeal that lets stop this thing once and for all, start a transparent judicial inquiry and hang the real culprit, once and for all, to make him an example for the coming times.
The petty politics have derived Karachi from becoming what it should have been, just look around and see Singapore, Dubai as the real port cities. Unfortunately, we in Pakistan realize very late. The establishment is the only culprit, for remaining a silent spectator all the way long.
No one disagrees that there can be a foreign hand in these bloody activities, but one thing is crystal clear that they have been provided the opportunity by us, not some aliens.
Its time to rise above the petty politics.
