Apparently the action against the criminals and extortionists in Karachi was a farce
Karachi: 12th June 2012
The Co-ordination Committee of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) has strongly condemned and denounced the brutal murder of the Syed Qarar Ali, brother of former MPA Syed Shakir Ali, in Sher Shah Kabari Market by for refusing to pay the extortion money. Syed Zakir Ali, another brother of Syed Shakir Ali, has received serious injuries in the attack.
The Co-ordination Committee said that if the criminal elements and extortionists were not controlled and their terrorism continued unstoppably, then the patience of the MQM workers, business persons and the general public might give way. Armed terrorists and extortionist had earlier killed several business persons in the same Kabari market by firing indiscriminately, and now they had struck again killing and injuring the brothers of Syed Shakir with brazen assurance.
The Co-ordination Committee said that the criminal elements, extortionists and terrorists had been given license to kill and plunder in Karachi and leaving the people of Karachi at the mercy of these criminals appeared to be a sinister conspiracy.
The Co-ordination Committee said that the increasing crimes of extortions, kidnapping for ransom and robberies were being done in the city with tacit support of certain elements. The security of the country had been compromised by paralyzing the city of Karachi.
The Co-ordination Committee said that the manner and ferocity with which the crimes of kidnapping for ransom, extortion and murders are being done in Karachi is proof enough that the operation against criminal elements was a farce. They still enjoyed the full support of the elements conspiring to subvert peace.
The Co-ordination Committee warned the criminals and terrorists not to get intoxicated by the support from the elements conspiring to subvert peace and order in Karachi. If the criminal activities continued unabated, people would stop listening to appeals for restraint from the MQM.
The Co-ordination Committee appealed to the workers and the people to restrain their emotions and remain calm and peaceful.
The Co-ordination Committee offered condolences to the bereaved family members on the martyrdom of Syed Qarar Ali and extended heartfelt sympathies. They also prayed for the good health and speedy recovery of Syed Zakir Ali, who has received serious bullet injuries.
The Co-ordination Committee demanded of President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, Advisor Interior Rehman Malik, Governor Sindh Dr Ishrat-ul-Ebad and Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to take notice of the brutal murder of Syed Qarar Ali for refusing to pay extortion money.
The Co-ordination Committee demanded the government to restrain the criminals and anti-social elements and bring the perpetrators of the barbaric murder of Syed Qarar Ali Shah to book.
