      People being murdered on ethnic grounds: ANP


      Shahi Syed, President Awami National Party (ANP), Sindh, has said that innocent people were being murdered in Karachi on ethnic grounds. In a statement on Monday, he said target killers are butchering innocent people on ethnic basis, not on political grounds. He said the concerned quarters, instead of taking action against the culprits, were trading allegations. Shahi Syed urged all political parties to play their role for bringing about lasting peace in Karachi instead of blaming one other. He revealed that more than 3,000 Pashto-speaking families had been expelled from the Urdu-speaking localities in Karachi. He said Pakhtun traders, transporters, and labourers were being targeted on a massive scale. He added that the ANP is representing all neglected communities of the country.
