    Now why is this IB Official being named openly in the news. Is it because our media is crossing its limits and showing details of national interest (off course you need to hide it from enemies that your top Intelligence man is down) Or is it just our Intelligence Failure, AGAIN !!

    @Syed:
    They want us to think in terms of Shia and Sunni. We have thought on these lines for so long that anyone seems to believe he can take advantage using this divide. God Bless Pakistan, God Bless Karachi

    This shows the complete failure of this government on law and order. How should a common man feel when police and intelligence officers, who are responsible for protecting people are being killed like this??? Killing an IB or Police official can be done by someone who doesnt care about any repurcussions, who has either very long hands or who is an utter extremist as is the case of taliban and other religious militant outfits… In Karachi it seems more to be politically and ethnically motivated. Very sad and bad. Shame on this government.
