The peace in Karachi can not be restored as long as their is government of PPP, their police, rangers and Rehman Malik continue to destroy Pakistan and the real people of Pakistan. As Shermila Farooqi said these were elected to punish the Pakistanies. While supreme court does not represent the people of Pakistan.
