    They should put all the police force to arrest the culprits and hand them in the middle of the town.

    Extremely sad. How can we expect weak Sindh police to take on terrorists, political workers, bhatta mafia’s etc in Karachi? I seriously feel sad for poor police even though in know they are politicized to the core.

    Karachi needs operations clean up now. I hope a large number of people believes that Karachi has to be cleaned from weapons.

    @Ahsan:
    The solution is a complete ban on MQM, ANP and PPP atleast in Karachi till these parties show that they have disbanded their military arms.

    @Adeel:
    Your solution can’t be implemented by constitution. And to amend the constitution to implement the solution People of karachi have selected the same terrorists (MQM,ANP,PPP). So don’t expect anything until people wake up and chose non-ethnic political party.
