Media and Lyari operation

On April 28, I was watching various TV channels and almost all of them were painting one sided picture giving impression that in Lyari only criminals and law breakers were living.
I have spent almost 36 years in Lyari and found the people of Lyari peaceful and law abiding citizens like people living in other areas of the city. Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, ex-Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Pakistan, his great father late Syed Roshan Ali Shah, former Register Sindh High Court and late Abdul Sattar Afghani, ex-Mayor, Karachi were my neighbours in Lyari.
If some criminals were involved in activities in one part of Lyari, the media cannot be allowed to pose the whole Lyari as a haven for criminals and malign the people of Lyari who have given unprecedented sacrifices for democracy. Regretfully, the media on the said day was acting as a spokesman of Chaudhry Aslam (SSP CIA) who has no good record during his previous various postings in Lyari. Nonetheless, the media did not take trouble to focus on the miseries of the Lyari people in detail to know their point of view.
Later on, one TV channel disclosed Chaudhry Aslam has been made in-charge of the Lyari operation whereas IG Police Syed Mushtaque Shah and other high police officers have no say in the operation as claimed the said channel. The channel by quoting residents of Lyari lately disclosed the police were indiscriminately arresting passers-by who wanted to vacate Lyari to save their lives.
I appeal to all TV channels that they must direct their reporters not to report one sided story and focus more on the miseries of the people of Lyari caused by police atrocities.

  1. You are right Mr. Sial. Media knows very well that Lyari people are peaceful, but there mouth was shut due to the biggest Don of Karachi, who is dictating PPP. On the other hand the position of PPP is getting down day by day and they have became a "Mad Dog" and started biting to innocent people of Lyar. Shame on them

  2. Media her bar Insaaf ki baat to karta hay lekin ub usse dekhayee nahi deraha hay lyari k awam kis qurb se guzar rahey hain kitni bheek inki jholy men Bloody biggest Don ne daley hain khamosh tamashaee banne k lya , Sharm aani chahyea inhe jo chund sikkon k lya bik jatey hain or Insaaf ki baat kartey hoay inki zabanen bund hain, Ek tarfa khani dekhaee jarahi hay, Lyari k log kal bhi pur aman they aaj bhi hain ,chund mufad parast syasatdan lyari men apne rahen humwar karney k lya yah sub karrahey hain lekin Insha ALLAH yah apne in napak azaem men kabhi kamyab nahi hongey.

  3. friends mai sirf itna khena chatha hon hum sikay(coin)ka ek phelo dehak rahy hai i know in liyari lives poor people but my friends gorbat hi to jo jraim ko janam dati hai,,,, think about it,,,,

  4. The Pak media always shows one side , they don’t show the reality when more than 50 innocents of Lyari in the name of this so called operation. They don’t show how people are living with no food, no electricity. They don’t show real history of gang war which was 100% supported by MQM. Entire Pakistan know that MQM has 5 times more weapon than Lyari. We all know very well that people of Karachi are “Yargamal and Ghulam” of MQM. We know well that how biggest terrorist and Hartal mafia is MQM. Bloody coward and one sided Media never dare speak about MQM.
    Where is Supreme court??????? Busy in Fucking Zardari?????? who suppose to be here in Lyari to save innocents lives.
    If the government keep killing Innocent of Lyari specially poor Baloch people, I am afraid the time is not far when these Pakistan lovers will start saying goodbye to Pakistan and we need Balochistan.

  5. I agree with Sohail that in Musharraf time Lyari was completely filled with weapons by a clear conspiracy of MQM.
    Today PPP’s selfish Zardari government just for the sake of “RULING SEAT” and making MQM happy doing killing a lot of innocents of Lyari.

  6. Lyari was famous about football Cycling boxing. The Heroes of Lyari like Caption Umer/Abdullah Rahi/Ghafoor Majna/Hussain Shah (boxer) put the flag of Pakistan always up in front of the world and made Pakistan recognised.
    Lyari was famous about street schools where used to be 100s of streets schools run by youngsters/volunteers to educate the poor community.
    Lyari was famous a house of peace brotherhood and pure Pakistan lovers, where all communities Baloch,sindhiurdu speaking,punjabi,pathan,kachi etc live and we never heard they fight to each other.

  8. PPP ko dhoop kar mar jana chahiye. Zardari aur uski puri team par Allah ki lanat hai. PPP bas itna soochay jitna zulm 5 saal mein awam par kiya hai Allah uska saab hisaab lega aur yeh Dua karta hon kay Allah ka azaab PPP par nazil ho aur puri duniya dekhay aur tamam hukumrano ko sabaq hasil ho Ameen
