@Malveros: The article says banned outfit. MQM is not banned. They prbably are referring to TTP.

If the operation was conducted with sincerity in beggining, these numbers would have been significatly lower. First six-months of Karachi Operation were spent on illegally abducting, and torturing and Extra-Judically murdering Innocent MQM Workers while Militants flourished and secured there bases, and from time to time conducted attacks of Police and other LEA's.
