This goes to show that we MUST at ALL costs root out terrorism and militia irrespective of whether these militias have political wings or not.
Karachi Police is probably the most CORRUPT in the world. this force is based on nepotism, sectarianism (mostly shia extremist), this is one of the most throbbing issues that requires immediate attention and resolution
