Dear Dawn team Don't you think you have omitted to mention ASWJ, "the new name for the banned outfit SSP "?

I thought it was an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life at worst. Somebody do the math for me. Was Maulana Farooqui's life worth more than the 12 dozen other lives lost in the violence across the city today?

Killing, murders are continuing in Karachi. Why doesn't the Government arrest the culprits? WHY WHY. We have all the gadgets i.e. cameras, cctvs, etc. etc. Has the Government got a hidden agenda?
