The capital city of Sindh Karachi was sealed with containers and police forces and fear was created by Government Machinery since last two days. “Many killing are likely hence Govt can not allow Awami Tehreek (AT) for Layari Rally”. Besides all that AT did what they planned.
It is no doubt a well-done by to Awami Tahreek who broke the chains of fear of people to walk on Karachi roads for the political rights which was created by fascist terror mafia since 22 May. Congratulations to Ayaz Latif Palijo for this great break through and this great success of people over terrorism. Hundreds of thousands people pay homage to martyrs of 22 May in Lyari Usman park and stood against illegal orders.
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!
AS the police-led operation against ‘gangsters’ in Lyari entered its sixth day on Wednesday, the humanitarian plight of this forsaken Karachi neighbourhood’s residents has become a matter of serious concern. People have been without food, water, power and gas for the past several days while stray gunfire poses a constant threat. Many of those who could do so have already fled Lyari. The city has witnessed protests against the operation, with demonstrators clashing with the law-enforcers. Protesters claim the action is partial, targeting a particular ethnic group. And while the Sindh government announced it had started relief work for the hapless people on Tuesday, it appears no plan was chalked out to protect residents before the police went inside the area last week.
