Serious notice should be taken about the spreading sectarianism in Karachi
The Co-ordination Committee of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) has strongly condemned the increasing incidents of sectarian killings in Karachi and termed it a conspiracy to destroy peace of the city. It said that certain anti-peace elements are killing innocent citizens in order to fuel the fire of sectarianism in the city.
The Co-ordination Committee said that the killings of Dr Shahid Hassan and his wife and the brutal murder of Nazar Abbas before her daughter are aimed at fanning sectarianism and undermining peace and order. It expressed sympathies to the grieving family members who lost their loved-ones in various firing incidents. It demanded Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad and Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to take serious notice of the sectarian killings in Karachi and bring the perpetrators to book.
Meanwhile MNA Rasheed Godial visited a local hospital in order to inquire after the well-being of 13 years old girl Zahra who was injured by the terrorists who killed his father before her eyes. He also visited the house of the deceased and sympathized with the bereaved family members.
