People Of Karachi Are Being Punished For Raising Their Voice Against Talibanization: MQM USA

It is a matter of great concern that law and order situation started deteriorating with the start of operations against Talibans in Bonair.

Communication & Media Cell, MQMUSA; Los Angeles; April 29, 2009:  The Central Organizer Kamal Zafar and the members of the Central Organizing Committee of MQM USA, on behalf of workers and supporters of MQM USA, have condemned the recent riots in Karachi in which many innocent people were killed and said that the people of Karachi are being punished for raising their voice against Talibanization. They said this in an emergency telephonic meeting of the MQM USA which was held today and was attended by the members of Central Organizing Committee. The office-bearers of MQM USA said that the moment the operations started in Bonair those extremist forces and their agents (drug & land mafia agents) started punishing the people of Karachi.


The members of Central Organizing Committee of MQM USA stated that Quaid-e-Tehreek - Altaf Hussain has been calling attention and pointing out for a very long time in his statements to the public and the government of the presence of Talibans in Karachi and also the intentions of these elements. It was further stated that in the past these religious extremists attacked the houses of Christian Community and no action was taken by the government against these forces.


The office-bearers of MQM USA also said that the way the people of Karachi are given blood bath by these Talibans shows that these innocent people of Karachi are targets of their revenge. The meeting demanded immediate and stern action to be taken against these Talibans and their accomplice land mafia people so that the innocent people of Karachi are freed from the duress and distress. The office-bearers of MQM USA also prayed for the soul of those who were martyred by the Talibans.
