Karachi
The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has termed the Baldia Town factory fire ‘the blackest incident in the history of the country’.
Addressing a press conference along with the affected families of Baldia Town incident at Idara-e-Noor Haq on Friday, JI city chief Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman opined that peace in Karachi could not be restored unless the government and national security institutions took decisive action against “the terrorist activities of the MQM”.
He said the JIT report on the Baldia factory inferno was an eye opener for every patriotic Pakistani, adding that the incident in which more than 260 innocent workers were burnt alive just for refusing to pay extortion was certainly an inhuman and brutal act.
He demanded a transparent judicial inquiry into the JIT report on the Baldia incident and other incidents, including the May12 massacre.
