A lot of bytes already wasted online about the thugs who caused mass murder in Karachi on the 12th of May 2007. MQM has its roots in the exploitation of the Karachi public and migrants from India. Sadly Pakistan never welcomes the immigrants from India properly and the likes of Altaf Hussein benefited from the resentment left in the hearts of such communities.
What happened in Karachi is very sad and shows how fragmented our society is now in Pakistan. To top it all, the unconditional support of the Federal Govt to the MQM thugs is also very alarming. I can’t remember in my life when a party was given such a free hand to massacre fellow citizens in the name of Politics. Maybe like many new things introduced to Pakistan during General Musharraf’s time, this will be a first also.
Youtube is swarming with videos of the atrocities of MQM on that day and still MQM had the audacity to come out with a video trying to proclaim itself as the victim rather than the orchestrate of the mishaps on May 12th. Time will end what will happen to Altaf Hussein and this fascist party but the future doesn’t seem that bright for them.
