The people of Karachi deserve this. They are zombies who tolerate anything and still vote for the same old parties ruling Karachi. Come out of your fear and on the streets people of Karachi and vote out the useless parties in the coming elections if you want to live.

Musharraf alone has the experience, patriotism, roots and a following in Karachi to bring peace to the unfortunate city.

Chaos is generated by all political parties collecting "Bhatta" or extortion money. Sad state of affairs.
