we"d better be scared of our own vulnerability in a land where the politicians and government are insensitive to the killing of innocent people on the street..karachi has been turned into tribal culture...where killer of DSP son can not be arrested ..killer being son of feudal lord

It is now beyond embarrassment that in Pakistan people take human lives with such inhumanity that there are people in our society who feel proud after killing people.... Killing has become part of our daily lives, just yesterday I received a call from my relatives in Karachi that their neighbor's two sons were killed outside their homes. In last 1 week, 7 people were killed in that area and no action has been taken by police or legislative authorities to provide security in the sensitive areas. The way I see, Pakistan is now in the state of civil war.

human lives have become so cheap in karachi, that people ask questions of how many dead everyday. does it affect our rulers or bring shame on their face to ask for votes for the next election from the same people who have lost their near and dear ones - only hope 14th jan.resolution by the masses bring some hopes

I am so sad when I read about all the violence in Pakistan, particularly in Karachi. My fiance lives there and I fear for the safety of he and his family. Just last night I told him that it seems that Pakistan is in the state of civil war and Syed states that very thing. :(
