The Government has failed with spree of killings reaching disproportionate level despite presence of Rangers. Oh yeah People rise to take it into your own as two people who can make difference appear immune to calls from you hapless, convert Karachi into Tahrir Square to protect lives of your nearest and dearest ones.

This is clear answer to those propaganda that only Shias are being targeted. Infact majority of target killing victims are Sunnis during 2012. Madressah are peacefully teaching Islamic education.

All the seminary should be close in karachi b/c more than 90% students are coming from outside karachi and creating law and order problems in karachi..stick carrying students were attacking private cars and looting shops whereas Islam teaches us to be patience and not to harm others.

Any government would have resigned not in Pakistan. When you have a mafia style party ruling Karachi, a coalitiion partner in Zardari government, who can you blame ?

Unknown gunmen should be known to a competent government. Foreign hand should be visible to a diligent government. But this corrupt government has turned it's eyes away from these daily cold blooded murders. There is no word of condemnation from President, PM, IM, CM or Governor because they know very well that they will run out of words but this blood bath will not stop.

This Act of killing is just to spark sectarian violence in the volatile city of Karachi , Nothing More !

There seems involvement of foreign spy agencies affiliated with any local group involved in sectarian killings. prior ASWJ persons have been targeted in this area and in North Karachi four blood brothers have targeted. Seems no one target killer has been arrested till yet.

In Islam killing of one human means killing the whole humanity. when will our rulers understand this. They only think of themselves as humans and none else. May Allah Subhanna Wa Taala bring Peace and Prosperity to all nations and give hadayat to these zalims.
