After former MQM worker Saulat Mirza’s shocking revelations in a video broadcast just hours before his execution, reports surfaced on Thursday that Lyari gangster Uzair Baloch had spilled the beans about his criminal association with the Pakistan Peoples arty (PPP).

Express News anchorperson Gharida Farooqi, while hosting her ‘G for Gharida‘ programme on Thursday, revealed that the notorious Lyari gangster had told UAE authorities that he had committed murders allegedly on the orders of PPP leadership, including its co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari, among others.

Baloch, currently detained in UAE, claimed that he was in direct contact with the PPP leadership and that he had carried out target killings in the city on the orders of PPP leaders. Some of these orders, he claimed, came from the PPP co-chairman, former Sindh home minister Zulfiqar Mirza, incumbent Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon and even PPP leader Owais Muzaffar.

Farooqi further claimed that PPP is trying its utmost to prevent Baloch from being extradited to Pakistan.

Refuting the Baloch’s claim, Memon said that the PPP never ordered him to carry out any criminal activity. Instead, the information minister pointed out that it was under the last PPP government that the biggest operation against criminal elements was carried out in gang-infested Lyari.

“We have always said that action should be taken against criminals irrespective of their political affiliation,” said Memon.

    As an ordinary Pakistani who sincerely loves Pakistan and its people I am hoping against all hope that with the latest developments, we as a nation can finally get rid of the likes of terrorist MQM and incompetent & corrupt PPP.

    Pakistan would be so much better off then the terminal cancers of Zardari, Altaf and their cronies.

    This is the sham democracy,which in Pakistan has assumed the soft face of pluralistic culture,but inside the thick coat of sheep we find wolves and hyenas preying on the blood of the innocent Pakistanis. The criminalization of Pakistani polity indicates that lawlessness has touched new bounds,where the so called elected representatives are the biggest thugs.Time for riddance of these vultures and wolves.Recommend

    The report is 100 % correct. That was the reason Zardari was so keen to join hands with MQM. They are all the same street gangsters running their gangs in the name of “Democracy”. They have made fool of our 10 % so called educated elite, which accuses “Dictator” and is dying for democracy by these illiterate vagabonds. What a tragedy? Recommend

    There are no surprises there when Uzair Baloch says that PPP’s leadership was directly giving him targets to attack,when they saw that another mafia(MQM) had literally taken over and held hostage entire Karachi using such coercive,brutal and violent acts then naturally they too adopted similar tactics to consolidate their control and influence in different parts of Karachi.Recommend

    Just like MQM is now wishing and praying that Saulat Mirza should get hanged as soon as possible,similarly PPP and Zardari & Co are also praying that Uzair Baloch get hit by a truck or lightening strike him. Financial corruption is one thing but killing people and not just few people but hundred of innocent people is simply unforgivable. Recommend

    My comments were totally ignored and it is not fair even if you do not agree. Here is another attempt:
    It is ironic that confessed murderers, criminals and worst terrorists have become the most reliable witnesses for the land of pure. Where are the people who keep talking about Ameen and Sadiq as primary virtue for even contesting elections let alone be witnesses? Making these witnesses as most reliable is like believing Mumtaz Qadri was an innocent victim and others ordered him to kill. Let us pursue all the others and believe him.
    Not too long ago the agencies and three sitting HC chief justices and larger bench of SC were going against a person on the basis of testimony by a shifty foreigner. The same game has started all over again. There cannot be any worse and unreliable witnesses than these convicted murderers who cannot offer any proof just verbal. Recommend

    so a verbal comment by a death row convict which seems to have given him a lifeline and another verbal comment by another known gangster are proof against top 2 political parties of Sindh.

    But sworn testimony of Kasab in Indian court, sworn testimony of David Heafley in US court , phone transcripts including voice call logs directing the 26/11 handed over to Pakistan government are not proofs. Recommend
