  1. Karachi is in grip of terrorists whose leaders wearing a veil of politicians are in the coalition government and continuing their murderous activities with impunity. It is very unfortunate that the constitutional head of the province who was facing criminal charges and was an absconder and living in Canada or UK was ceremoniously brought back by despot Mushrraf and installed him as the governor. He is the main protectors of criminals of the ethnic party and in collusion with perfect liar Rehman Malik provides perfect protection of his thugs from arrest or protection. I will not be surprised if this governor is holding dual nationality and I will not be surprised that numerous members of this ethnic party who are now sitting as respectable in the assemblies may also have dual nationalities but they are liars from top to bottom they will never declare their dual nationality.

    Karachi is bleeding and the whole world knows that an ethnic party which claims to be a mainstream party is indulged incessantly in extortion, murder and target killing but President Asif Zardari is so hamstrung by something from Altaf Hussain is that he is ever so ready to yield to their demands bartering legitimate rights of Sindh and Sindhis. Asif Zardari has no qualms whatsoever to yield to blackmailer Altaf Hussain.

    Until and unless Asif Zardari, who does not represent the values of PPP and its scions ZAB and BB. is booted out in the next general election this blood letting in Karachi will continue unabated. It is Zardari clique-Altaf mafiosi combination which has deprived Sindh and its capital of peace and tranquillity and pushed the city to darkness.
