Session to discuss implementation of Supreme Court's verdict on Karachi's law and order situation.


Express October 08, 2011

President Asif Ali Zardari summoned a meeting at the Presidency later on Saturday to discuss the implementation of the Supreme Court verdict on Karachi’s law and order situation, reported Express 24/7.

Sources say that the session, to be attended by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Home Minister Manzoor Wassan and Additional Home Secretary, will focus on the apex court’s judgment issued in the suo motu proceedings taken in the Karachi violence case on Thursday.

Supreme Court's verdict stated that if target killings continue in Karachi, it would be difficult for the government to remain in power. The court said that it would not allow any government to shirk its duty of acting against any political party involved in anti-state or subversive activities.

During the hearing, the court had pointed out that banned outfits including Sunni Tehreek are involved in extortion, while there are allegations of the same offence against parties such as Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Jamat-e-Islami (JI), Awami National Party (ANP) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
