IT is highly objectionable that a movement for creating a new Hazara province is being launched in Karachi instead of their own province, i.e. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, thus putting the fragile law and order situation in Karachi at further risk.

As matter of principle, had they confined such activities to their own province, no one would have raised such an objection.

It seems Baba Haider Jalal, who poses himself as a champion of the so-called Hazara province movement in Karachi, is working as an agent of some forces who are meant to disturb the peace of Karachi. I suggest the Sindh government should, as a matter of policy, ban forthwith such objectionable activities meant to disturb the law and order situation in Sindh, particularly Karachi.
