KARACHI: Twitter erupted in shock and fury as news about the extra-judicial killing of a youth by Rangers personnel in Karachi surfaced. Pakistan's Twitterati voiced their dismay, horror, and anger, at the same time raising questions about the ability of the government and judiciary to deliver justice.
Here is a round-up of the top tweets:
I get sadder and sadder as the days go by. Will we ever get justice? Or is that for the selected few?
What happened today in Karachi has been happening in Balochistan for years – difference? Media is not allowed to show that genocide.
For those asking, probably the only reason the video made it out was because his brother was a journalist.
All the more convinced that my staunch opposition of gun and violence glamourizing kids at school was valid and the right cause.
I hang my head in shame as a Pakistani. I will sleep tonight with a heavy heart, knowing the law of the jungle prevails. We are all prey.
Sialkot, Kharotabad and Karachi - we're heading towards dehumanization of society.
Just watched the Samaa footage and I feel like throwing up. This happened in Karachi, imagine the extra-judicial murders in Balochistan.
Would be very interesting to see how many inquiries Rehman Malik has ordered, and how many of them have been completed.
