Why media is mum on Karachi Killings ?

This time i am writing about a more important issue , one that is very disturbing. Disturbing because it is exposing us as a callous society only busy in their material objectives, unable to think as a group. But my point is not society, mine is even more a serious one. Our media which doesnt let go any opportunity to report president’s fever/cough is mum and silent over Karachi killings. The reporting is more of a formality then any effort to inform the readers/viewers about what is really going on. While daily ummat is the only source doing some job, our TV channels and newspapers, which are also based in Karachi mainly, are happy churning out the “usual stuff”.

karachi_killingsOur media which has done a good job in acting like a surgeon to debate each and every legal/political point is less bothered about these target killings. May be they do not want to take the wrath of the players involved or may be this is not an “attractive package” at the moment. In any case, this is a very very disturbing trend. At one hand it follows the murder of a girl and a Colonel in Punjab like a National Security issue but on other hand it is absolutely mum on the many dozen killings in mini-Pakistan.

Who is responsible for latest Karachi Killings

Karachi_killingsKarachi is once again in headlines for targeted killings and like always we have difficulty in finding the “namaloom afraad” behind. The media which is mainly Karachi based is completely silent on this (for known reasons) and is limited to informing only about deaths. Daily Ummat known for its investigative journalism has posted this story on details of the killings. Currently there are 3 parties in coalition and therefore the political responsibility squarely lies on PPP, MQM and ANP. If current situation is brought under control we may see a repeat of history but it is hoped that some quick meetings will follow to cool down the situation. We want to know readers opinion as to which party is actually responsible for these killings:
