Really?? This is how you give news of sectarian and racial violence in a once glorious city? Facebook & friends did a faster job at reporting the murder of our relatives than you did. Shame on the media for covering up our horrible Government's failure as humans 1st & and leaders 2nd.

Has the aged CM and Sindh Home Secretary any shame and fear of God in them. Everyday dozens of innocent lives are lost in karachi and both of them are still holding their post. Even the MQM has become a shameless party to still be part of the government.

It is simply astonishing that scores of people die everyday in Karachi and other parts of Pakistan but the politicians are busy accumulating wealth or slinging mud at each other. This is supposed to be an Islamic Republic with a democratically elected government. There is nothing Islamic or democratic about Pakistan. It is fast descending into an antiquated uncivilised society without any morals or values.

I so agree with you and unfortunately the majority are so illiterate and radicalised that they don't know anything better.

I am very sorry but what kind of news is this? One person was killed here......another person was killed there???. These men have names and families. Mothers, sisters, brothers, wives, children, they were not persons only, there were human beings. Please show some symphaty and write their names so that all of us know them and if you humanize them may be it would wake our sleeping concious up. If you dont know who they were you dont have to post the news, get the news first and then post them but in a thorough proper way.
