How many people's live did MQM "protect" when they ran the city for the last 5 years They never bothered to save citizens from the lack of law and order. Don't expect citizens to care now sirs

Inna Lillahe Wa Inna Ilaihe Rajeoon M. Faisal. This is the apathetical and negligent nature of Pakistani governments that come to Islamabad. Line the pockets and give a hoot to all complaints even if a life is lost. Remaining peaceful is a contribution to the livelihood and welfare of of all. Well done Muttaheda. Salams
