Feudal lords on Karachi streets

January 06, 2013

ONE always comes across political leaders chanting slogans against feudalism, especially in Karachi where the image and reputation of the Sindhi-speaking chunk is constantly being dented and all are considered waderas. This wadera mindset prevails, and the recent cold-blooded murder of Shahzaib Khan on a DHA street in Karachi on the day of his sister’s valima proved that.

What was the 20-year-old’s crime? Was it that he saved his sister from harassment by a drunkard servant of those waderas? Was it because his father is an honest police officer? It is a grave situation. I appeal to the Chief Justice to ensure that these beasts are punished before they flee to some other country.
