RNJ | 12 years ago | Reply Headline discrepancy: 560 innocent dead, 79 of which are target killings. NOT 560 target killings since Jan. That's preposterous. Please edit carefully.
Shiner | 12 years ago | Reply Just wonder on HRCP ignorance if they don't even know Mohajir Qaumi Movement doesn't use the word haqiqi (Real) since 12 October 1997. The current MQM-H group had been established 2 years ago by Muttahida Qaumi Movement. HRCP should spend some time in research before issuing any report.
