    This mean man keeps on giving anti mohajir speeches and the govt provides him with security rather than taking disciplinary action against his coarse and inflammatory behaviour!

    @Asad:
    Bro, being anti MQM is nothing to do with anti Mohajir.Dont twist facts any more.You have right to vote for any party but MQM is no more Mohajir Party as its name stand now.Whole nation is against terrorist and militant wings of any party including MQM.So criticizing MQM and its policies is our democratic right, so dont take it over your nerves.No body is againt Mohajirs but we are against terrorist and fascist party.

    Dr.Mirza should take extra care because those who can kill Wali babar shaheed,can also hurt him.Take care.May you live long and help Karachi free from terrorism and extortionism.

    @Asad – I am a Sindhi by residence (no matter what language I speak) and I say that no one is Anti-Mohajir, but people have mixed opinion about MQM. Bring about a change in MQM and try to make peace not war and you will see that all Sindhis (sindh living) will respect and embrace you. But if you call out statements like ‘Karachi Humara Hai’ and kill other settlers, you can only create fear, not command respect my friend.
    One can atleast expect that much from a educated class.
