KARACHI: Ordering an increase in the security of PPP patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the Sindh government on Tuesday said the Bhutto scion faces serious death threats, Express News reported. 

Sindh Home Department said that Bilawal could be attacked by outlawed terrorist group Jundullah at any given time.

Bilawal is due to address a rally on October 18 at Mazar-e-Quaid which will also mark the seventh anniversary of the day former prime minister Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan and a bomb blast on her caravan near Karsaz left more that 200 people dead.

Preparations for the jalsa are fully underway and strict security measures are enforced for Bilawal’s protection.

    How are pictures of confidential memos being openly distributed?
    Does the government not investigate such leaks and punish perpetrators?

    They needed an excuse to call off the rally on 18th as they are worried that they may not be able to bring in a sizeable crowd.

    @the karachi wala:
    “Bilawal is threatened by Jundullah or Peoples lyari Gang Leaders over dispute of Extortion money?”

    Kidding aside, it would be wiser that he calls off visiting Lyari area. One can’t be sure which Ladla has switched sides and when. There are enough shaheeds around in the clan. The spooks are too busy solving old cases. Let him not be a vote-baiter at the risk of his own life. England would be far safer.

    ‘the loot and plunder from Karachi need to be stopped .’

    I agree man. The Karachi loot and plunder REALLY has to stop. I intended to share my sacrificial hide with the Edhi Foundation, but the goons actually snatched it from my hands.

    Someone (while playing cricket) said “mein chakka maroon ga”. PPP workers thought that it was a death threat given to Bilawal. Just a simple case of misunderstanding ;-)
