PPP Government fails to cope with Karachi violence

Published on

It is evident that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Government does not have and official strategy to cope with Karachi situation. As for months the tensions between political parties in Karachi have led them to use power against each other, this is causing the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians each month. The PPP government is hesitant to take action against culprits because those belong to political parties which are coalition partners of PPP to form the federal government.

The interior minister Rehman Malik keeps on insisting that the solution of Karachi violence is in dialog between those political Parties and on same time PPP led government is taking no ground action to cope the situation with power. Why not PPP government use power and arrest/execute the souls who are killing innocent people in Karachi, why they have wait for those political parties to make peace between them and call for truce or seize fire.

Its responsibility of state to ensure the safety of citizens, PPP led government have to understand, they have to put their own gains behind and work for the betterment of people, but this doesn’t yet came from them. They better address Karachi violence issue and such thousands of unaddressed issues of people of Pakistan or they might not have second chance in government.

On Sunday alone reportedly more than 18 people died in Karachi due to on going target killings, these were the reported deaths, unreported deaths would be additional. These deaths clearly negate the peace restoration claims of interior Minister Rehman Malik and the PPP led government.

Bottom line is either the parties negotiate peace between them or not, there is greater responsibility on PPP because of them being in government. They are responsible for ensuring the safety of people of Pakistan, which they were fully incapable to achieve only because of their incompetence, similarly as they were not able to address thousands of other issues of people of Pakistan.

Its is the time for PPP government to wake up and do, whatever they are suppose to do to protect people of this country and address their problems if they really want to be in government again after next elections.

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.
