and whats the outcome of the meeting? My wild guess is "Nothing". Will it bring peace in Karachi. My wild guess is "No". These meetings remind me of the phrase "look busy do nothing"

The criminals in Karachi out number the police, and how many police are helping them or warning them? It is easy to have people killed at bargain prices in that city.

Are you suggesting that most of the Citizens and Resident of Karachi are Criminals? Only if there was Equal Economic opportunities for ALL in Karachi these Criminals would vanish in Seconds. Just bring back HONEST ECONOMIC activity back to Karachi and see the Miracles happen. Eid Mubarak to All.
