    A foolish approach. Just demonstrating for some unknown forces killing Karachites is useless. Come with the proper protest against the real culprits, If you do not know who they are then better do not come out. There is however a hint who is there in this whole affair is the Korangi incident on 19 Aug 2011 in which several out sider people killed or injured, who came at that point in disguised buses,clothing and in the dark at that time when there were no person due to severe firing in the area since evening. All media is using diplomacy in declaring unknown person, third hands etc etc. Pity.

    Gr8 idea. The unknow forces wil have a second idea if the karachites unite in huge crowds and come out. At least this wil deter the fear of unknown!

    It will take place at 3m ?

    Also, I believe we have enough problems in the city already.. How about we concentrate on keeping ourselves safe by staying home, rather than demonstrating on the streets and inviting more trouble?
