    The decision,taken by the Election Commission
    on the request of Sindh government is right.

    The way of protest has been adopted by the MQM in Karachi
    is not a favorable to the country and the nation.
    We should all remain calm and wait the inquiry result as being done
    in London police.

    Target killing and agitation is not a solution of the problem,country’s condition
    is already fragile due to flood,
    we should think before taking step.

    The person or persons responsible in the ,murder of Imran farooq
    must be hanged in the public place.

    We should know that
    in the form of protest,enemy of Pakistan are playing with life of innocent
    people and stability of the country,
    we should not provide them chance to play such game.Recommend
