It's another sad news. It's happening in Karachi for last many years. When will the concern authorities be able to control it? Bring the Murderer to justice.

MQM has many rivals including JI, PMLN,Functional, Taliban, the feudal system etc. They cannot defeat MQM otherwise in election. Eliminating rivals is disasterous.

Sad..But this is normal ... common citizens die in Karachi everyday..now the leaders join in and face the bad state of affairs which they have created...

Tragic news .May Allah bless his soul.Ameen
