"External forces behind violence in Karachi"

Express May 20, 2010

KARACHI: Secretary General ANP Sindh Shahi Syed said that the violence in Karachi is being controlled by external forces on Thursday.

Addressing a press conference in Karachi, Syed said that either the local administration was supporting the criminals or the criminals were extremely influential as none of them have been arrested so far.

Syed highlighted the fact that only Pakhtuns were targeted during the recent acts of violence in the city.

He said that the people who are trying to create an impression that Hazarawal and the Pakhtuns have differences are wrong.

zakir | 14 years ago | Reply I sincerely request all to please avoid blaming parituclar ethnic group as all Pushtoons are not the terrorist and all Mohajirs are not involved in target killings. Before labelling any particular gorups, we must realize that who ever involved in target killlings or escalating violence in Karachi is not a sincere Muslim. All we are accountable for our saying and doing so we must exercise extreme caution while saying anything specifically when we talk about already charged situation like Karachi. May Allah bless us all and give us courage and wisdom to think above our political affiliation.
