July 02, 2021

Director-General Sindh Rangers Major General Iftikhar Hassan Chaudhry has said peace has been restored in Karachi due to the sacrifices and efforts of the Karachiites and law enforcers.

He said this on Thursday while addressing the ‘Professional Leadership Summit 2021’ organised by the Mass Human Resources Services (MHRS) in Karachi where he was welcomed by MHRS president and members.

He said the Rangers was taking every possible step to improve law and order in Karachi. Addressing the conference, the Sindh Rangers chief discussed the background and reasons for the Karachi operation and said peace was restored in Karachi due to the sacrifices and efforts of the Karachiites and law enforcers.

“The positive results of the Karachi operation also built up the trust of the local and foreign investors,” he remarked. Earlier in the day, a delegation of the Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen, led by the party’s Sindh chapter chief Baqar Zaidi, Karachi chapter chief Maulana Sadiq Jafri, Ali Hussain Naqvi, Mir Taqi Ali and Sabir Karbalai held a meeting with the DG Rangers at the Rangers Headquarters.

The delegation discussed the law and order situation in Karachi and rural Sindh and appreciated the sacrifices of the citizens of Karachi and law enforcement agencies in order to restore peace to the city.

On Monday, the DG Rangers, while criticising the international media, had said that Pakistan was not as bad as it was shown by the foreign media. Speaking at the Dow University at an event to mark International Day Against Drug Abuse, Maj-Gen Chaudhary had told the audience about the incident that happened to the Pakistani family in Canada as well as another criminal incident in the country.

“If incidents like those that happened in Canada had happened in Karachi, it would have been declared the world’s dangerous city.” The head of the paramilitary force said that Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy’s Oscar-winning film “Saving Face” was made after three incidents of acid attacks were reported in Pakistan. He then compared the situation in Pakistan with that in London, saying that more than 800 incidents of acid attacks were reported in the British capital, yet no film was made and neither did the media report on it.
