General Secretary Jamat-e-Islami Liaquat Baloch has said that peace in city was fundamental to the country’s survival but alleged the government had handed the city over to terrorists.
He also said that it was the responsibility of coalition partners to maintain peace in the city but it seemed that they had failed to restore peace and harmony.
These views were expressed by the JI leader while visiting and meeting the journalist community at various places.
A JI delegation, headed by Liaquat Baloch, is on a three-day tour to the city to determine the root cause of target killings. In this connection, they visited the residence of the slain Geo News reporter Wali Khan Baber on Monday and condoled with his next-of-kin and offered Fateha.
Later in the day, they visited the Karachi Press Club. During a meeting with newly-elected KPC President Tahir Hasan Khan, Secretary Moosa Kaleem and other senior members, Baloch said that his team would be meeting with all the stakeholders in the city to get reports about the lawlessness in the city.
Tahir Hasan Khan said that severity of the situation could be gauged from the fact that even journalists had not been spared and the murder of Babar was a clear-cut message to all journalists that they are not immune to being killed.
Senior journalist Habib Khan Ghori said that the rule of law was not visible in any part of the country.
