Violence in Karachi

November 29, 2008

karachiThree days after the Mumbai carnage, mysterious and totally uncalled for violence broke out in Karachi yesterday. Where the amred men opened fire on people. Later on the miscreants burnt the vehicles. Is this a calculative attempt of  creating law and order situation in the financial capital of Pakistan?

Separate incidents of violence in Karachi on Saturday resulted in deaths of 7 persons while 71 others were injured.

Unknown men also set on fire 11 vehicles in different parts of the city.

The riots started in Banaras area where unknown armed-men opened fire at passing vehicles and also pelted them with stones, killing 7 and injuring 71 others.

Three of the deceased have been identified as Muhammad Ali, Mukhtar and Matiullah.

The dead and injured have been shifted to Qatar Hospital in Orangi Town.

Medical superintendent of Qatar Hospital, Dr. Saif 15 of the injured were brought in with bullet wounds.

    One incident leads to another – such happenings give rise to local hostile elements to make trouble and blame it on the other country.

    Some people suggest those were ethnic riots. I feel Indian agents carried that out. Don’t know for sure though. But there was no apparent reason for such riots. That is amazing!

    This had been building up so wasnt out of no where,but they could have stopped it and controlled it better.

    But i guess people in our city can only stay calm for a few months.

    The people of Karachi have the most amazing bouncing back technique and the practical sense to stay calm in hysterical crisis – i was in karachi three years through many bomb blasts and the oil spill crisis, and the calmness of the people taught me a lot – I changed as a person there myself – my punjabi hysteria streak died when I lived there 🙂

    In the recent riots, Pathan Talibans are not only torturing and murdering Mohajir Men and Women they are also kidnapping and rapping Mohajir Girls

    B you are right – I was in a hurry – that is my only excuse. Aadi – please try to understand what Khaled Sahab is saying.

    Mr Khaled, I saw the report – I also heard it before. Incidences like these make me fear for the women in Pakistan. These are not men doing these crimes – they are inhuman souls with no fear of God. I feel sick and terrorised to think that such criminals live to see the light of day and are loose out there in society. 😦

    This Pathan-Mohajir issue is very old in Karachi. Politics nothing else!

    Asma: All the mistakes are excused because I also make too many too often 😀

    Vix – yeh to aap ne ghalat baat ki hai – If there are bad people in Pakistan, criminals who take lives here and in other parts of the world – please dont judge all Pakistanis on that – We are not all of us bad – just like the common Indian and the USA man is not bad – there are always good and bad elements in each society – you cant classify all fish in pond to be lethal if one bites you.

    You call us PAKI – that is used as an insult abroad. You insult us on this blog – why? what have we done to you here in this page of the internet.

    Yes, it is! Like the word Nigger, Negro (almost)…

    Owais – They used it in Europe mostly – way back when Pakistanis were less in numbers – especially in the UK – I am hoping they are better these days. I have only visited europe for holidays – my parents moved us back when I was one – never really got inspired to move there in my growing years.

    Ayesha – I deliberately left comment in here – not losing my temper – cant let ‘outsiders’ think that all Pakistanis are dead and impervious to any insult hurled at us. 😉
