Farooq Sattar is Alive and Well!

There has been a rumour flying around about the MQM, but Farooq Sattar is alive and well – He was just seen on Ary OneWorld, giving a phone interview that there are a lot of rumors running around but he is well – Yes, shops and banks have shut down and many continue to – Please let’s not flood the streets with unecessary chaos, adding to an already fragile situation. Thanks for the foresight, Tee Emm.

    its obviously an attempt to stir ethnic violence provoking MQM’s supporter to retaliate and trigger a chain reaction.. certain elements even on this blog are quite active in fanning such hatred

    all of them have major political differences but they should set aside political differences in this time of crisis and work together,as none of them would want karachi to sink..

    @Ali: Good to see a mature, constructive comment on here!!.

    & yes. Thats sarcasm you read.

    Stay safe everyone and pray things get back to normal.

    Just think of the thousands who survive on daily wages. This dire situation is only gonna lead to their frustration and depression – & then ppl wonder why folks turn towards crime and extremist activities.

    More than blame the government, its a failure of society.

    Yes every one knows you’re the only doctor working in the Civil Hospital. Thats why you are always available on the blogs. Go and see the patients, they are dying.

    Finally DOCTOR some sane comments. I agree with you totally, we should all come out of a state of denial, admit that MQM, ANP and others do exist in this city, end the politics of marginalizing one group or party, and talk to each other for building the future and not destroying it. We should recognise that we all are in this together and one party cannot override the other. We should all work to disarm our society which will go a long way towards settling political disputes by talk or vote rather than the bullet.

    For now I think that the political leadership of both the major political forces of Sindh i.e PPP and MQM have acted responsibly, otherwise, this could have easily turned into an ethnic mayhem. If criminal elements of one community have targeted another, then they should be treated as criminals and the whole community should not be maligned. Personally, I think if the army was deployed the very first day then such loot and plunder could have been avoided, but hind site is always 20/20.

    Sitting from outside I can tell you that, here commentators have come on TV and said Pakistan is finished and it will descend into chaos. All I know that Pakistan is still not Afghanistan, there is still hope, we should recognize that those in power and those in opposition are both Pakistani, we should now talk unconditionally to each other and set aside politics of confrontation.

    We should at any cost hold elections as soon as possible in order to show the world that we are still a viable country and can take any shock that comes our way.
