MQM asks political & religious parties to block way of those becoming assembly members with drug mafia support


MQM asks political & religious parties to block way of those becoming assembly members with drug mafia support
 Posted on: 7/6/2013 1
Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Coordination Committee urged all the political and religious parties to launch a vigorous campaign against all those getting elected to assemblies with the backing of drug mafia and smugglers so as to bring an end to the patronage of smugglers, narcotics dealers, extortionists and those kidnapping for ransom.
Commenting on the recent remarks of the Chief Justice of Pakistan during the hearing of a case in the Supreme Court relating to narcotics that there is a drug war in Lyari and people had reached to assemblies owing to smugglers’ backing, the Committee said that the job of the court is to give its verdict in the light of proofs and evidence whereas the task of blocking way of those reaching assemblies with the backing of narcotics dealers and smugglers was of political and religious parties.
Deploring that those reaching assemblies with the backing of drug mafia and smugglers patronize the perpetrators of heinous crimes such as extortion, narcotics business, kidnapping for ransom and other criminal acts, the Committee said that such a trend has not only made the lives of businessmen, industrialists and shopkeepers miserable but making the younger generation addicted to narcotics, thereby playing with the future of Pakistan.
The Committee said that the need of the hours was that all the political and religious parties should demonstrate unity against anti-social elements by launching a campaign against all those becoming members of assemblies with the backing of smugglers and narcotics dealers.
Such a drive on the part of political and religious parties would not only bring an end to the trend of patronization of extortionists and kidnapping for ransom but would pave way for people to become members of the elected houses strictly in the true spirit of democracy, the Committee opined, saying the move would also save the younger generation from the menace of narcotics.
