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:

    Dear All,

    Slightly adverse security situation prevails in some areas of Karachi from recent target killings and last night’s clash between the two groups of land grabbers in Lyari and Garden area. The clashes have resulted in killing of ten people and wounding several others. Rangers and Police have taken control of the affected areas, but the business / life in all other areas is normal.

    This morning there was an explosion in a Baldia Town residential area killing six terrorist who according to the police were engaged in preparing suicidal jackets.

    JI will stage a protest demonstration today at 1:30 pm at Memon Masjid, Boultan Market. While Milat-e-Jafferia has claimed to block main roads across city after Juma prayers, demanding compensation for deceased of Dec 28 blast.

    Protests are likely to remain peaceful but can cause traffic disruptions after Friday prayers. Chances of clashes between Protestors and Police at few places cannot be ruled out. Police/Rangers increased presence in the city expected.

    Please avoid all troubled areas and avoid taking any unnecessary risks .

    Thanks for this report – very useful. I assume these killings are unrelated to the massacre on 10th Muharram? Some people are pointing their fingers towards India. Do you discount that possibility? Can anyone explain why the police and the rangers just stood by and did nothing on 28 Dec. while the looting and destruction was going on?

    I put up a post at my blog on the Ashura atrocity but I concentrated more on the sectarian aspects. I would welcome comments on the real perpetrators behind the killings and the looting. The link to the blog post is

    It is very sad to see that you put in PPP ANP MQM & PPP MAM ANP choices but not a “MQM” choice.

    It was clearly MQM who was behind the attacks.

    (Miltant Qatil Militia)MQM’s absconding mafia chief Altaf bhai from his hideout in London have called upon Army and agencies to take action in Karachi and restore the law and order situation in Karachi.

    Point to be noted is that MQM is part of both provincial as well as Federal Govt. Is the MQM saying that system in Karachi has totally collapsed and the government(of which it also is a partner) has failed miserably?

    If army do indeed comes into Karachi then same British Altaf bhai will start whining,howling and growling like a crazy animal when Army will take action against real perpetrators of these killing which includes MQM’s own sector and unit terrorists besides others.

    MQM Altaf itself is THE biggest land mafia in Karachi at the moment.Hundreds of acres of public parks,play grounds and amenity plots have been encroached and occupied by MQM’s gun touting unit/sector terrorists. In most of these affected area the actual residents of the area are too helpless against these MQMized terrorists,they were opposed to these illegal occupation and construction but obviously these people were no match for armed organized MQMized criminals. Plots were demarcated on these encroached parks and distributed to MQMized office bearers and families of MQMized unit terrorists.

    Now after successfully encroaching and illegally constructing without much resistance,attempts were made to encroach Gutter Baghicha in the same manner,unlike the rest of the areas people in Liyari are armed so naturally they’re resisting and making encroachers run for their money.

    Don’t forget the MQM-H guys…everybody forgets the little guys…apparently there were reports of Sunni Tehreek and JI guys showing up dead too, with a tad possibility of a Shia-Sunni crossfire in between…

    That’s a sad weather forecast with too many religious/ethnic/political militant groups on the horizon…

    Can I go totally off-tangent and delusional and just blame it on the US-Israel-India nexus?

    We make up nonsense and blame “foreigners” for virtually every other terrorist or criminal activity, why not this?

    Its just easier to live in fantasy…
