Government must target militants in Karachi: MQM
KARACHI: The MQM demanded on Saturday that the government must conduct an operation against militants holed up in different areas of Karachi.
Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters, MQM’s Deputy Convenor Farooq Sattar said that Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah has also admitted that militants are heading to Karachi to escape the military operations in Swat and Waziristan.
He demanded that a high-level investigation of Friday’s bombings must be carried out immediately.
He said that some religious parties and other political leaders are still defending the heinous crimes of the Taliban. He appealed the public to socially boycott such parties.
Sattar warned that the government must act immediately to protect Karachi from becoming another Swat, adding that if such attacks continue, the entire country’s economy will be destroyed.
