Sindh – Stop Lyari operation

Stop Lyari operation: A critical PPP supporter’s perspective – by Syed Salman

Why do those who have had a taste of victimhood forget so quickly and could actually launch the same offensive against others? I seriously ask myself if the ongoing Lyari operation justified?

Without any biasedness I strongly believe that Baloch of Lyari were armed & used by PPP to protect its interest and now they’re being massacred. So the next question would be; will the successful Lyari operation result in peaceful Karachi; no more extortion cases, no street crime at all, no more abductions for ransom etc etc etc. Undoubtedly, criminals do reside in Lyari but do all criminals reside in Lyari?

In my honest opinion, even luring should have a limit. Please excuse me, but PPP government must stop bowing down to the MQM. PPP’s MNA Nabeel Gabool’s security being demanded by MQM speaks out louder than mere words. If PPP led government is so serious in eradicating criminal elements from Karachi, then why not an indiscriminate action against all felonious & illegitimate elements in the city, conducted by rangers in every crime infested area. Why just Lyari and why not Malir, Shah Faisal, Lalo khait, Kareemabad, Jauhar, Orangi town, Banaras, New Karachi, Nazimabad, Kati Pahari?

I have somehow started to believe as if PPP has been hijacked by Rehman Malik’s one-sided compromise as pointed out by Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza already & it’s getting worse. How ironic can it be; Baloch on their own indigenous land (Lyari-Karachi) have been massacred to pave the way for occupiers!

Moreover, ANP should break their silence over ongoing Lyari operation, otherwise innocent Pashtun will definitely be next in Karachi.

I have always had this opinion that Zardari is a very smart politician even smarter than his deceased wife. However, the said ongoing Lyari operation upon his direction falls beyond my comprehending capacity, as to why is he letting PPP vs. PPP happen. All in all, It’s going to be lose-lose for PPP apropos Lyari operation.

In my honest opinion, the ongoing Lyari operation is totally unfair as is incited by criminal elements itself; solely to validate ownership of the city. However, the operation has deeply alienated core supporters of PPP & I am disappointed.

Stop Lyari Operation triggered upon crimino-political behest!

Former governor Sindh, Hakim Saeed murder clues letter allegedly recovered from slain MQM leader by Scotland Yard

Investigators stumble on Hakim Said murder clues

LAHORE: A letter likely to point to the murderers of former Sindh governor Hakim Said has been allegedly recovered by Scotland Yard from the house of slain Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Dr Imran Farooq.

Earlier, several MQM workers, allegedly involved in Said’s murder on October 17, 1998, were arrested and subsequently sentenced to death by an anti-terrorism court. However, on May 31, 2001, the Sindh High Court acquitted all the accused in the case.

The letter, said to have been written to Dr Farooq by one Javed Turk, is part of a number of documents impounded from the MQM leader’s house as part of the ongoing investigations into his murder.

The investigating agency is translating the letter from Urdu to English for possible clues, sources said.

Said, who established Hamdard Foundation in 1948, was a well known scholar and philanthropist.

Farooq Murder probe

Translated documents, recovered from Farooq’s house, are helping Scotland Yard zero-in on possible suspects in Farooq’s murder case, sources said.

Scotland Yard has recently questioned on caution one person and also carried out house and office raids in the UK in connection with Dr Farooq’s murder. The person questioned on caution is believed to have links with an important Pakistan-based political party.

Knowledgeable sources have claimed that the MQM UK chapter has taken strong exception to the direction the murder case probe has taken and has even reportedly protested to the UK government. ….

Arshad Sharif of DAWN TV under threat

Censoring Dawn TV‏ – by A. H. Nayyar

A very interesting thing happened this evening (28th July).

DawnTV was airing Arshad Sharif’s talk show Reporter. The topic today was growth of Islamic militancy, especially Jundullah within Pakistan’s military and its connection with Jaish-e-Muhammad and Lashkar-e-Tayyaba.

He started by showing a documentary on how Jundullah started in Quetta cantonment, how it spread across different formations of the military, showing some footage that looked original.

The discussants with Arshad were Air Marshall Shahzad Choudhry, Zahid Hussain and ret Gen Hamid Nawaz. As the documentary started, we saw, Hamid nawaz getting up and leaving.

Arshad then showed another short documentary which gave public sentiments on such trends in the military. Then came a commercial break.

After the break, the viewers saw that the program has been taken off the air. Instead Dawn started airing a completely different and old episode of Reporter. Clearly, the live program was censored. And clearly, from the top military brass.

What does the military have to hide that needed this censoring? Any comments from anyone knowledgeable?

I truly fear for the life of the brave journalist who had prepared the documentary.

This follows the arrest of Honduran Cristobal Gonzalez-Ramirez, 44, in Alberta Friday.

Both men had been identified on a list of 30 men Canadian authorities said were failed refugee claimants suspected of international rights violations. …

Raymond Davis: fact & fiction – Najam Sethi’s Editorial

The case of Raymond Davis has outraged the imagination and sentiment of Pakistanis mainly because of a distortion of key facts by powerful sections of the Pakistani media. It has also become a vicious ping pong game between the PPP and PMLN governments, with both trying to score nationalist points regardless of the consequences for political stability and national security. Ominously, though, it has soured a troubled relationship between Pakistan and the US who claim to be “strategic partners” in the region. Let’s sift fact from fiction.

Fiction: Mr Davis “murdered” two Pakistanis. He shot them in the back, suggesting he was not threatened by them. They were not robbers. Their handguns were licensed. Fact: Two men on a motorbike, armed with unlicensed pistols, held up Mr Davis’ car. He expertly shot them through the windscreen, stepped out and took pictures of the gunmen with weapons as evidence of self-defense. Later, an autopsy report showed that four out of seven bullets had hit the gunmen in the front, confirming the threat to him. The criminals had earlier robbed two passersby of their cell phones and money.

Fiction: Mr Davis is not a diplomat because he doesn’t have a diplomatic visa or status registered with the Foreign Office. Hence he cannot claim diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Conventions. Fact: Mr Davis has a Diplomatic Passport. His visa application by the US State Department to the Pakistan Embassy in Washington DC of 11 September 2009 lists him as a Diplomat who is on “Official Business”. The US government has claimed diplomatic immunity for him. This is the norm. For example, Pakistan’s Ambassador to Spain in 1975, Haroon ur Rashid Abbasi, was granted immunity following discovery of heroin from his suitcase. Col Mohammad Hamid Pakistan’s military attaché in London in 2000, was caught having sex with a prostitute in his car in a public place. He invoked diplomatic immunity and avoided arrest. Mohammad Arshad Cheema, Pakistan’s First Secretary in Nepal, also invoked diplomatic immunity after 16kg of high inte4nsity RDX explosives were recovered from his house and he was suspected of being involved in the hijacking of Indian Airlines Flight IC-814. And so on. …
