Unarmed boy Killed by Rangers in Karachi Pakistan

Published on

Karachi a young boy named as “Sarfraz” was killed when he was in custody on rangers and rangers brutally opened fire being Judge, Jury and executioners themselves. Boy was clearly posing no threat to the rangers as he was fully unarmed and was even asking for polite stance from rangers.

No rule of law in entire world allow anyone to do such a vicious act, this is clearly a murder and must be met by murder charges on the person who fired the gun shots on that unarmed boy. The human rights organizations must come forward to bring the dead to the justice by making sure that killer is brought in front of a court.

Even after this vicious assault the DG Rangers seems defending the act via statement that it was crossfire, clearly boy is unarmed, lets see following footage of event and discuss other stuff after that. Have a look.

Rangers also found involved in such events in past where in Karachi people were killed the gun shot of a ranger but this was unique event where the person deliberately make sure to kill the victim making sure that he does not make it to life.

Orders of action against the rangers already came from Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah and Interior Minister Rehman Malik, hope on ground the steps are taken to bring the soul of dead to justice as no offense against him proved yet.

Also Sharjeel Memon who is Sindh information minister told that strict action will be taken in this regard. A number of political parties, individuals related to politics, Journalism and civil society already condemned this vicious assault by rangers against the boy being named as ‘Sarfraz’.

This is not about a single case but about respect of human rights in this country, this is definitely a negative message to the world, specially when security forces individuals who are suppose to protect us are found killing the people even when they had a chance to arrest him and bring in front of court. Or even they had him in custody. This matter must not be met with leniency. I would name this event as murder by rangers, anyone else have any better idea?

Update – June 11: Chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chahudary had took the Suo Moto notice of the event, the two culprits were arrested and brought in front of Supreme court on June 10th 2011, court have granted the five day remand against those two of rangers. After five days court will again here on the case.

Court also told IG Police Sindh and DG Rangers Sindh to leave their positions or else advised the Sindh government to hold their salaries till further notice. Reason told by court was these people tried to hide the facts from court and in a way tried to protect the culprits. However government disagree on this from court and will bring forward an application to court in coming days to review the decision about IG Police Sindh and DG Rangers Sindh. According to government the act of killing was act of few individuals involved, IG Police and DG Rangers have nothing to do with it, so they must be allowed to continue their services.

One thing for sure after this case came on to the media with that video footage these people changed their stance otherwise everyone from officials were blaming ‘Sarfraz’, the victim of the event.

Every murder is not target killing claims government

Published on

Currently target killing is the biggest problem of Karachi. People are scare of leaving their houses and going to public places in fear that they will even be able to come back safely or not. Now for months the conditions are same and getting worse day by day, government which was supposed to take some solid measures to put an end to such a violence seems to come up with excuses every now and then.

Now in a recent conversation with media the interior minister said that every murder can’t be said the target killing. Yes this is very true you can’t categorize every murder as target killing but you can’t use this as an excuse for Karachi as the massive amount of killings in that city are the target killings.

And even despite those killings are target killings or just murders it is responsibility of those who are in power to stop such a violence. If the correct measures would have taken on time, the target killing of Karachi would have been very much thing of the past but we are just used to listen these kind of lame excuses.

Its target killing or not, it does not matter at all, everything which matters is how the current people in power are handling these things, they better take care of these things soon or wait for people to finally decide to wake up and not to choose them in next elections. Allah Bless this country.
