People are forced to think that the killings and kidnappings for ransom are not stopping as they are planned
The Co-ordination Committee of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) has deplored the continuous killings of the MQM workers and other people belonging to different sects in Karachi. It said that the constant killings were part of a devious conspiracy to push Karachi in the flames of strife and bloodshed. It said that the conspiracy was aimed at weakening the MQM by creating chaos and confusion among people. It said that the terrorist elements and their sponsors, who had been involved in violence and bloodshed in the past as well, were behind the vile conspiracy to create unrest in Karachi.
The Co-ordination Committee said that, on the one hand, the banned terrorist outfits were active in Karachi and on the other hand extortion mafia and criminals of the gang warfare were thriving. These terrorists and hardened criminals were involved in sectarian killings and targeting the MQM workers one after another. It said that two more MQM workers Syed Nehal Akhtar and Noorul Huda were gunned down in Orangi Town the previous day by terrorists.
Both Nehal Akhtar and Noorul Huda were senior workers of the KPT Unit of the MQM Labour Division. They were also office-bearers of the current CBA working in the CBA. Two days ago, a sympathizer of the MQM was abducted by the terrorist in Kharadar area who was killed after being subjected to inhuman physical torture.
The Co-ordination Committee said that thousands of security personnel belonging to the Rangers and FC were also deployed in Karachi besides the police, but the persistent killings, kidnappings for ransom and other terrorist activities have put a question mark before their performance. It said that the people were forced to think that the incidents happening in Karachi were continuing unstoppably because they were planned.
The Co-ordination Committee demanded President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Governor Sindh Dr Ishrat-ul-Ebad and Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik to take serious notice of the continuing killings in Karachi and bring the killers swiftly to justice.
The Co-ordination Committee offered condolences to the grieving family members of Nehal Akhtar and Noorul Huda and prayed Allah to shower His blessings on their souls.
