    The easy way out to blame foreign elements is scored out. Now you can spot Mir Jaffers and Sadiqs.

    Does that mean that Malik is misinformed – or purposely deceiving the public?

    But I am 99 percent sure that it will continue again. The police itself is involved in these acts, they will be unable to stop it unless the corrupt policemen are removed first. What ever they say its a clear lie. we have been listening to it since childhood and they have failed again and again.

    I think the IG Sindh Wajid Ali Durrani needs some lessons in politicizing issues and making sensational revelations to fool uneducated people of Karachi.Recommend

    Building 30,000 flats for police officials isn’t going to solve anything.

    when you get to 90,000 target killers . rest of Pakistan will join in the appreciation. Karachi is an amazingly self centered and apathetic city.
