The problem of karachi will never come to end unless people like Zulfiqar Mirza, Sharjeel Memon and other hawkish element of Sind government and federal government specifically should come out of their dicriminatory behaviour against karachiites ,I am surprise to see important people in the government are willing to. talk with those who are fighting with our law enforcement agencies and who have killed, thousands of innocnt civilians on the basis cast,creed religion and ethnicity ,are we sending those forces a message that we only understand the language of; brutal power whereas propaganda machinery is more active against karachi and Its people ,let me, tell you whether it sounds bad karachi can be in peace only with locals in police who has their interest in this city.Wake-up Pakistan before its too late.
