Sindhi | 10 years ago | Reply I was shopping when MQM terrorists on bikes, came and shouted at shops to be closed. Wow; I guess Shehbaz Sharif was right in saying, they don't want corpses wrapped in sacks to be found throughout Lahore!
pheonix | 10 years ago | Reply Establishment alleged MQM for target killing.....who the hell want to burn his own home and all these target killers are outsiders came from underprivileged areas of Pakistan and want to change the great city into a TRIBE mostly from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other parts of Pakistan. They are enemy of Paksistan and want to damage the business hub of Pakistan by killing one of the educated society of Pakistan in Karachi.
