A Question to Ponder
City Nazim, Mustafa Kamal, raises a very valid question about the recent events following the BB assasination
During an informal chat with journalists at his office on Monday, Kamal questioned why the civil society, lawyers and media are silent about the worst destruction in Karachi’s history – people being burnt alive, looting and plundering and burning of hundreds of vehicles – and asked why those involved were not being pinpointed.
A brief search on the news articles from the period are also devoid of much comments from the aforementioned sections of society, which is also a section that was very vocal about some of the other events in the country. I, for one, agree with his view that
“during certain past incidents, the civil society, media and lawyers created one-sided propaganda, while so-called analysts and intellectuals of the country kept airing their views on Karachi’s situation even though they were unaware as to what had happened here”
