Why arrest these criminals? Just shoot them at sight. The courts cannot do anything

Remember when MQM was crying/yelling very loudly about the Taliban infiltration and their surrounding of Karachi.

Most of the people made it sound like it was against the PPI and Shah saheb etc.

I guess Altaf Was correct after all.
