@liberalpak, you are also forgetting during last 4 years most of the people killed belonged to mqm, almost half. also PPP is only strong in Liyari, and its always shut down, its a news when Liyari is peaceful. Aman comitee still operates with ppp flags, there are pictures of PPP members all over Karachi with benazir and Rehman Dakait on banners. stop being so naive. NATO ammunition supplies havent got lost in the city they have always been lost outside, usually in KP.

@Copper: Your statment is full of contradiction, you say, PPP has no influence and then you say they have weapons and Lyari is shut down. MQM has weapons but its popular. Bro, if PPP has weapons and government, CANT they shut down whole city in a min?? Dont under-estimate PPP's strength. See the difference between a violent demonstrations of MQM and peaceful PPP.

@Farnham: Aman committe has already been banned by PPP govt and When will MQM ban its militant wing? As per wikileaks, JITs and SC observations; in extortion, violence and hate crimes, the party which gets top slot is MQM. What about missing Nato ammunition supplies from Karachi port? Who was minister? Check facts please.
