Know your leader: The new face of PS-93

Razzak, who is also the JI’s West district vice president, has finally made his way to the provincial assembly.

Our Correspondent August 07, 2014


A seasoned politician, 40-year-old Abdur Razzak is a journalism graduate from the University of Karachi. He was elected as the UC-4 nazim in Metroville, SITE Town, both in 2001 and 2005. He has also served as the Jamaat-e-IslamiI’s deputy parliamentary leader in the city council and was expected to be stiff competition to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Awami National Party candidates in the 2013 elections.

Razzak, who is also the JI’s West district vice president, has finally made his way to the provincial assembly after the party’s eight-year absence in the arena due to successive boycotts.

“If fair and free elections were held in Karachi, the JI would have emerged as the real voice of the residents”, he told The Express Tribune.

Meanwhile, JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeemur Rehman said that the JI had boycotted the polls in Karachi due to massive rigging. “Despite this, voters have proved that they trust Jamaat-e-Islami.”

JI started positively building Karachi when they got Local Govt and brought its budget from 6 billions to 43 billions and finished mega development projects for Karachi during 2001 to 2005. Same can JI do if given chance to rule all over Pakistan. Those who criticise JI is only because they dont like the word ISLAMI associated with its name and Actions.

Imran Qadri | 8 years ago | Reply @Bash Gull At the time of partition when Muhajirs from India came to Pakistan locals welcomed them with open heart,now I don't know if this guy is really Afghan or not(you will have to prove it here) but even in civilized western nations if someone lives legally in your land for a period ranging from 5~10 and has business,residence etc then he becomes permanent resident and can even apply for citizenship. @Uza Syed Snakes? Just like those that are biting us here in Karachi during violent strikes & closures every other day especially whenever there is some search is being conducted at a house in London or some suspect is transferred to police station in London? Should the trouble makers of Karachi should also be asked to be deported back to where they came from(or maybe South Africa) ? Pakistan definitely comes first for us the people of Pakistan and Karachi is financial hub of Pakistan so it needs to be liberated from troublemakers irrespective of their political association.
