Karachi and its people has completely been pushed aside, ignored & disregarded -an open letter to CM Sindh from Karachiites

Chief Minister of Sind is also CM of Karachi but neither has he owned the people nor its problems whereas he too lives in Karachi.

He does not intend to uplift & ameliorate, correct & amend the worsening condition of Karachi - The capital city of Sindh running its Provincial assembly in Karachi with coalition partners are equally responsible for its ruin.

Why don’t they raise voice and pass the bill in support of Karachi where PPP sitting in treasury benches & MQM at Opposition along with other political parties chairing in the assembly.

As we know that Karachi has embraced every nationals & not only has accommodated every shades of languages being spoken across the country but has valid representation in the assembly also.

They are stake holders for Karachi matters so why such negligence, abstraction, detraction & disparagement?

Pakistan People Party (PPP) & Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) - strong die hard in Sind politics have been ruling the city since decades but no sizable changes except when MQM had a land slide victory in local bodies’ election held in 1987 and between 1988 and 1997 the MQM alternatively became a coalition partner of the PPP and the PML (N) twice.

In 2001 - Musharraf era, promulgated a new local bodies’ law that provided for establishment of the ‘’City District Government of Karachi’’ (CDGK) with a Nazim as its head - Mr Naimatulllah Khan Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) & Mustafa Kemal of MQM.

The two successive Nazims rendered a wonderful job for the welfare of people living in Karachi and accomplished many developmental projects giving the city a dynamic look – maintaining its identity ‘’city of lights’’ intact – strengthened the public services departments functional and accessible without any barriers and lousy practices.

A remarkable road infrastructure, flyovers, underpass, overpass, subway,  sprawling roads network connecting with down town and posh area and with industrial sites situated in four zones of Karachi.

Footpath & parks (women +children), water supply and sanitary lines, regular garbage collections and dumping, street light illumination, transport and bus stops were the services of CDGK provided to Karachiites.

A recognizable reforms & revamping in public services industries had been carried out – major renovation and refurbishment works were prominent under the good governance of CDGK.

But now Karachi a mega city of 30 million has no father - looks an orphan city. No one seems ready to care & treat the inhabitant facing with myriad problems.

PPP intoxicated with power show off, their flamboyant attitude, magnificent living style and arrogant behavior as if Karachi is their fiefdom, said a group of people furiously agitating for water.

Rampant corruption unearthed by Director General Audit Sind

Currently the Sind govt. is seen involved in unbridled corruption in ‘’public services departments’’, power abusing, political appointment, unabated nepotism and favoritism, money laundering & capital flight from Karachi to UAE and in other states have been the practice of PPP, uttered the audience in a program conducted by private TV channel I’m Karachi.

As per audit report published in national press – the report submitted to Governor of Sind for the financial year 2014-15 from Director General Audit Sind – stating massive corruption carried out in 34 public services departments.

The Auditor General of Pakistan has found financial irregularities, misappropriation of government funds and corruption of Rs1 trillion - Rs29 billion and Rs74.3 million in the audit of financial year 2014-15 in 34 Departments of Sindh government.

The Sindh government also failed to recover Rs29 billion & Rs296.8 million embezzled by the officials of different departments of Sindh government pointed by Audit Department in its report.

Among total funds released - amounting Rs5 trillion - Rs59 billion - Rs33.2 million for the Sindh government were audited and irregularities of Rs1 trillion Rs29 billion and Rs74.3 million were found.

Nearly 20% of the total funds allocated to public services departments
aiming to serve people of Karachi & Rural area of Sind - but instead to invest & spend for people welfare - betterment and advancement providing them the mandatory basic amenities of life but Sind govt. embezzled it & left the people to suffer.

The envisaged budget could not utilize honestly but misappropriated a good chunk of money avoiding addressing the woeful plight of people living in Karachi and rural area of Sind.

A big question mark for remorseless behavior of CM Sind not delivering the required service to Karachites except busy plundering & looting national wealth?, said by group of students debating over the restless condition of Karachiites organised by private TV Channel 

Not investing even a single fills on people services - getting them clean drinking water a talk of the town - buying new motors to restore suspended water supply of W&SB - not installing electricity generating units to reduce the power shortfall - not imparting education – not caring health – not spending towards repair of uneven road/ streets – not erecting street lights.

A complete denial of Sind govt. to address multiple problem such as uplifting the debilitated condition of govt. primary and secondary school in urban and rural area - needs furniture, lavatories, drinking water, evacuating school from the clutches of influential lords who has encroached school and children are sitting outside the school – school premises has been rented & children diverted to another school sitting like a chicken in poultry farm, refers urban school in Karachi .

Scenario of govt. hospitals no medicine – not installing X ray & Ultra sound machines – no incubator & ventilators to oxygenate the patients, no proper toilet and drinking water in hospitals – broken and un-repaired patients bed - abrupt condition of toilets - medical wards.

The report says that the Sindh government was directed to recover Rs29 billion - Rs296.8 million of the embezzled money but only Rs46.5 million were recovered.

According to audited report financial irregularities and misappropriation of funds to the tune of
a)   Rs3 billion & Rs858.1 million were found in Sindh Education Department
b)   Rs3 billion & Rs848 million in Sindh Board of Revenue
c)   Rs3 billion  & Rs466.4 million in Sindh Live Stock and Fisheries Department
d)   Rs189.6 million in Finance department
e)   Rs5 billion & Rs896 million in Sindh Services & General Administration Department
f)    Rs1 billion & Rs758 million in Energy department
g)   Rs710 million in Health Department
h)   Rs437 million in Sindh Works & Services Department and other Department of Sindh Government.

A very pathetic & critical situation where Karachiites are not getting basic facility.
People goes here and there – protest – agitates – do rallies and takes out procession – media also highlights the irregularities & inability of the Institutions connected to Water Supply – general condition of Roads and Transports & Lengthened Power Breakdown (scheduled + unscheduled) but no avail.

Karachiites undergoing with political, governmental, economic & social syndromes - needs an immediate attention to address it & fix it.

When the attention was brought out by the Core Commander Karachi in the APC held at Governor House (Karachi) - he chronologically height lighted the poor performance of the govt. where people has been deprived off the basic needs of life.

The resources either have been scarce or confined with ignorance or not exploited fully attaining optimum result.

A very disgusting and diabolical situation of ‘’public services industries’’ specifically meant to serve people - govt. supported institutions as stated above are in distressing and lamentable - really nauseating, said a senior citizen who has been roaming Civic center Karachi to correct his property tax paper.  

Core Commander further emphasized - giving reference of rising criminality in Karachi to revisit, rewrite the policies and procedure, revitalize & restructure the ‘’Public Services Industries’’ and ''state governing bodies'' - by doing proper insemination to make the departments functional & advisable.

The govt. must move aggressively with the only motive to own the people and own their needs on war like strategy & struggles - a compulsory needs of life cannot be kept aside or connive, he reiterated.

Currently no Government at all in Karachi - CM & MPAs are not listening & normal life has been woeful and wretched - people are dying in such sizzling heat where the mercury scaling its heat in between 44 to 50 degrees Celsius and there is no drop of water since 6 months.

Even to bath dead body to prepare for funeral there were no water in the area and the body had been taken to adjoining area in other sector to formalize the funeral.

Govt. attitude at this point of time really outrageous and shocking – seems insincere and immature who is avoiding to handle.

Water crisis
Performance of water and sewerage board (W&SB) is icky and shitty, they are giving lame excuses that pumping stations are closed due to breakdown of water motors & are under repair at Hasan Abdal etc.

What a ridiculous there should have been backup if it happened? It’s an obvious negligence and carelessness?

Failure to meet any disaster or the authority must know Business Continuity Plan (BCP) if operation of any equipment goes off by any reason – it signifies unprofessional ism.

Normal public nothing to do with water motor breakdown - W&SB should have been prudent to meet such circumstances dealing the crisis proactively.

Doing press conference and blaming the equipment – inefficiency of management, local govt. - sitting Chief Minister and relevant MPA no one apparently seems ready to expedite & resolve water crisis.

People are screaming – running with an empty cane to fetch water – paddling bicycle, standing in long queue wherever they hear any source of water.

Media seems busy highlighting – doing interviews with the residents in affected area - covering the woeful plight of people but govt. as a silent spectator showing its meanness’, said an angry man who though arranged boring in Orangi town contributed 60k could not get drinkable water but salty.

However in most of the locality - Karachiites went for boring & attained water containing salt are drinking - resulting they have been infected with Hepatitis A, B & C.
Someone reported doctors told them to have black fever - mostly are suffering in Gastro-intestinal diseases & skin diseases, media covered the story interviewing in New Karachi & Orangi Town - Salty water is unhygienic and harmful for health, doctor advised.

Water supply disconnection is not the issue of any specific area but the whole Karachi has been overwhelmed with the poor performance of govt. officials.  

Tanker mafia selling water at exorbitant prices which a normal man unable to afford.

People cannot sleep in night – they cannot go for work unless bring a cane of water for his family – children cannot go school because there is no water to get them readied for school - the man going for office without breakfast - house wife not able to cook food for his children and spouse .

Sustaining water crisis is really a nightmare for Karachiites.

The worst example of status quo we have in Karachi - Govt. institutions and allied agencies in public sector who had been designated or bound to serve people (living in Karachi) have been exhausted & dysfunctional in totality.

WS&B says, there is outstanding bill against us - accrual to K Electric failing which the connection at pumping stations will be disconnected.

Is this problem pertains to a common man? People needs water do it whatever you do! Said majority of audience attending a public forum organized for “water crisis in Karachi’’?

Motor installed at pumping stations have been old and one or two motors always remains out of order, said Chief W&SB - Certainly unjustified - leading to the incompetency, ineptness and amateurishness.

Two motors we have sent for repair to Hasan Abdal – its supplier is KSB water Pump Company having its workshop there - so temporary water supply has been suspended - as soon as we get our pumps back - water supply will be restored - how incompetent he is, said house wife having a bucket in her hand.

The water pipes those had been installed decades before - now due to wear and tear has lost its strength - from most of the places either it has been leaked or broken that’s the reason water is wasting.

Does the reasons assign by Chief of W&SB substantiates the ability & legitimacy of the department & caliber of its Chief to stay further in the department?

Why W&SB does not have proper monitoring system & technology oriented devices to check the piping infrastructure – a complete water-pipe-network across Karachi (sprawling in the city) can be witnessed if there is any leakage or breakage.

A well designed piping network monitoring system certainly will be facilitating the department to notice any untoward related either technological breakdown or any vandalism associated with water supply disconnection.

Not only water supply but people have been enveloped with multi-faceted barriers in Karachi.

Electricity/ power supply
Also another failure on govt. part - in most of the area the outage carries from 8 to 10 hours on daily basis though it says 6 hours scheduled.

But unscheduled carries with it giving plea that ‘’Feeder in your area has been tripped off - the high power tension wire has broken & our operational staff is working - maintenance work is continuing - suspending supply 12 to 15 hours not daily but in a week - so average breakdown tunes to more than 10 hours every day.  

ü  Daily sweeping & cleaning Roads & Streets
ü  Garbage collection & dumping
ü  Repairing & maintenance of Roads & Streets
ü  Trenches
ü  Footpaths
ü  Laying sanitary pipe lines
ü  Laying water supply lines
ü  Street lights to be kept alight

Keeping the city clean and maintain its greenery are the initial and compulsory responsibility of Karachi Municipal/ Metropolitan corporation (KMC).
But KMC are not performing its duties honestly, sincerely and no one in place to inquire and fix their responsibility.

This is because of ‘’no accountability’’ or No check and balance - If the employees are not discharging their assigned duties - terminate them and appoint who loves to work – take drastic action - no favoritism and nepotism at all – do operation clean-up in the department, said the annoyed people who were showing a heap of garbage & overflowing gutter water in the streets.

Because of not cleaning and collecting the garbage for dumping - the outlook of the city has converted into a slum area – the city has been wrapped with waste material.

Garbage collection and taken away is one of society's most needed activities. Garbage collectors duties to be distributed in shifts from early morning to late night shifts.

Garbage collection can be from the residents’ area, from companies, from industrial sites, from specific places such as hospitals, schools and veterinary clinics, malls and markets situated in a locality.

Waste management isn't just about throwing things away anymore - recycling and reuse needs to be determined and planned in practicality to produce by-product which of course a good business if runs smartly.

KMC employees disclosed with media that most of the Garbage Collection Truck - Dumper Trucks are out of order and the authority in KMC are not paying heed for its repair.

Resulting the truck which had a little repairing work now has lost its potentiality & durability - getting it rusted due to keeping it parked in open air, no proper parking slots for municipality trucks, media reported.

Why don’t we buy & utilize the allocated Municipal budget sincerely, purchasing High Compressed Density Garbage Collection Equipment – Road Sweeping vehicle – Trash recycle waste compactor & Suction truck’’ to serve the cleaning matters & releasing chocked sanitary line as well.

Had the Karachi not been as bad as portraying a slum area if we would have used the garbage collection equipment instead to park the vehicle in open sky with no responsibility on department part?

The KMC can update its cleaning department efficient and effective if purchases ‘’Floor sweeper – Dust collector – Rubbish Balling machine – Garbage compression equipment – Garbage compactor truck – Vacuuming Road sweeper.

If the CM is serious he not only can amend the people but accelerate and revive the departmental performance adding new machines, equipping KMC ‘’repairing and maintenance department’’ with desired tool and appliances to keep in-house repairing center active, we can save KMC assets as well.

If Karachi generating revenue and doing its banking transaction on daily basis from Rs.12-15 billion then why don’t we keep the city neat and clean & make it more progressive and prosper. 

A commercial hub Karachi needs its due share to feed it so that its beauty we can maintain.

Fire Tenders position
Firefighting implements, materials, personnel, their ability & strength are seen when the firefighter fights with the fire - how efficiently they prompt in reducing and subsiding the fire blaze even it is 3rd degree fire.

Fire tenders are in short quantity - most of them are out of order & could not repair due to inadequate arrangement in the workshop and shortage of funds to meet repairing expenses – resulting fire tenders got rusted and lost.

Fire Brigade department taking its last breath - the physical condition of Fire Tenders - location of Fire offices – availability of water browsers & water filling stations.

Fire stations based in single room establishment with no water connection and a garage that house one fire tender - condition of snorkel etc. are in horrible states which seems unable to meet any firefighting calls.

A city of 30 million inhabitants are at the mercy of an ill-resourced Firefighting system.

The fire department consumed millions of rupees of taxpayers’ money each year but failed to serve the citizens yet.

Generally 5000 cases are registered for big and small fires - the fire brigade department is a big example of negligence & bureaucratic apathy, illegal political appointments, corruption, out-of-order vehicles and unsuitable workplaces have made the most important service department a disaster

If the Fire department itself is in disaster how you can respond to a disaster?

The fire brigade does not have a snorkel & water browsers to handle an emergency situation, said a retired senior director of municipal services.

1.   01 Snorkels out of 03 are out of order
2.   Water browsers, large tankers that can hold up to 3,000 gallons of water - there is no one to drive them as the contracts have been expired and because of not renewing the contract the browsers have been rusting away in a corner.
3.   Of the 22 registered fire stations 13 do not even fit to the definition of a fire station
4.   Some are one-room offices with a parking area for the fire tender - others are operated out of make-shift containers.
5.   45 out of 75 fire tenders are functional

In the past evidences are there where Firefighting department could not show its eligibility to subside the fire resulting we lost lot of human lives, refers the incident of Baldia town where 259 people roasted in the furnace, Timber market & Abbas Town Karachi etc.

There is a general complaints among firefighting personnel that their own security are at risk – the department does not give them fire protective equipment or tools to save their own life as number of firefighters lost their lives while performing their duties.

So the department should buy Fire Hoses – Helmets – Boots – Extrication devices or tools – Ladders/ Ropes for their personnel.

Fire department needs in-house training arrangement to educate their staff with an updated mechanism and techniques to fight with fire and save the citizen too.

Therefore instead to do corruption of more than trillion of amounts – CM Sind should arrange to purchase equipment meant for two departments

1.   Garbage collection & dumping equipment – road cleaning/ sweeping Suction truck to release chocked gutter line
2.  Firefighting equipment i.e. Fire Tender – Snorkel – water Browsers & Equipment for Fire department personnel - Buy more Fire Tenders, Snorkels - Latest equipment of firefighting - mechanical foam - Jumping kit – oxygen Mask & fire protective parachute save human lives.

Do investment in both public service department those are dysfunctional, rattling and shocking.

Undoubtedly it will be great & unparalleled support for people of Karachi to revive these services industries to serve people.

''aXact'' a computer software company involved in forged degree scams - a big Cyber crime of the year?

A mass scam though this nasty and stinky business mushroomed since decade but this is the first time came to public that what ‘’aXact'' had been doing?

How more aXact had been reliable & trustworthy on the name of ‘’Professional Degrees & Diploma procurable in a short period’’ advising just to invest in US dollars and get the desired degrees from internationally acclaimed universities situated across the globe?

A chain of forged and fabricated web sites glittering here and there - asking to log in and get into the platform of ‘’On line Professional Degrees – a hassle free and on line education - no burden of classes & personal appearance but just an enrollment for the degrees and payment of tuition fees in US dollars for a given period - & getting every procedure accomplished on line? But the main accentuation is on line!

Securing On line degrees in various subjects – running ads on Google – if clicked you would never ever get any physical existence of any schools, colleges and universities but just a toll free number, email & contact numbers - where a complete drama had been conducted under one roof.

And it had been portrayed (convincingly) in a professionally attired environment giving language preference and accent of an individual who used to show that the authority was on line - establishing assurance between the caller and the attendee of the desired country – a fake interview calls so that every caller would believe the legitimacy of the degree from the desired country was correct, the report unveiled.

‘’aXact’’ a name of international repute in computer software industry has gone under heavy debate of unimaginable fraud after unearthing the story in print & electronic media, it spread like a jungle fire where every one came to know that who is the don of the day?

In 2006 Xact was prosecuted using name of some schools, colleges and university in US - issuing fake degrees  - when the news unearthed by one of the schools owners that some agency used its name and issued forged degrees whereas aXact was neither accredited, registered nor authorized to use school's name eventually then aXact owner was fined too by the court.   

Currently ‘’aXact’’ offices in Karachi – Islamabad & Rawalpindi have been sealed, relevant records, computer hardware and even staff present on duty have been taken under custody of  FIA, media reported.

aXact has been alleged involving in issuance of fake & fictitious diploma and degrees in volume of educational subjects – getting prey those who had interests to secure higher education from foreign universities for better future.

But ‘’aXact’’ the company in question looted such interested people with both hands and issued them a forged and fabricated, unauthentic & unregistered & illegal certificates and diploma which originally had no existence at all.

aXact bagged a lot against selling such fake degrees using the name of well renowned & top most universities identified as an icon in educational hierarchy. Using grandiose name of universities, showing enlistment of outnumbered top most lecturers, professors & dean in different faculties basically misguided & trapped the interested people as such radiant faces shown on the net were paid actors.

No physical address of any university, college and schools in given web link is seen except toll free number and contact person - looking ghost educational institutions - neither accredited nor registered with any top universities whose name used or degree of such university issued, clarified in the report published.

As we know that aXact is known as a sister concern of Bol TV Channel which is still to go on air - The aXact group offers big salaries and perks to Bol employees with a well furnished office.

aXact group has hired senior journalists and giving them heavy salaries even before the launch of ‘Bol’. The recruited employees of Bol are drawing their salaries whereas there is no commercial even being run as we understand commercial ads becomes the source of revenue for TV channels but in Bol case it is still on the paper.

So people has right to ask what is the source of income for Bol - how it is financing or meeting its growing day to day business - how Bol is crediting hefty salaries to its hired employees who are sitting in office though not sitting at home but the disbursement started as soon as the employment contract signed off? 

American Newspaper also claimed that the videos provided on the aXact website of Professors are also fake, they are all actually actors & even there is no physical university registered in such name.

Axact actually is running a printing press - a well organized ultra modern technology oriented printing press where degrees and diploma are printed in a more advanced and sophisticated way maintaining a high degree of accuracy.

Its a big scamming company earns up to $ 10 million in a single month - the former Officer of aXact told the New York times that the telephone sales agent also knows that they are providing fake degrees and services. It is cleared that the revenue earned by giving fake degrees is spent on BOL TV network where employees heavy salaries with perks and benefits such as employees insurance, medial facility for self & parents in top most hospitals in Karachi are provided - company maintained car and even to the top ranking officials with latest model of cars 7* treatment really.
For the time being we felt that we are living in a well developed country within 3rd world - when I saw scale of latest model of cars and four wheels in parking slots of Bol premises - a complete new outlook of Pakistan where the participants had been given a red carpet reception with outnumbered entertainment outlets., said an invitee who attended Bol award giving ceremony held in Karachi. 

Though the Bol still has not been aired due to some administrative glitches with PEMRA, however it alarms those who still seems interested to join Bol of course will get a jerk and think whether to move or not?.

aXact has its offices in UAE too where the money is transferred from all over the world, predator takes it course when prey falls in its trap against on line degrees and diploma this practice is continuing since long, revealed in the report.

Though FIA has raided ‘’aXact’’ offices in Pakistan and internationally investigation also has been initiated to check the fraud rendered by ''aXact''.

But from Pakistan perspective we don’t see any viable and productive inquiry if aXact is found involved in such a heinous crime. It’s basically opening of more pockets in the govt. functionaries to grease their palm instead to do any legal stern action, said a college professor sharing with media.

It can be seen the practice being followed in Bol, a trail of discussion in social media where a normal TV anchor gets position of Executive Vice President while he/ she was simply a TV anchor or senior TV anchor. A cameraman get appointed as Senior Cameraman against hefty salaries and perks - such practices negates the market salary slab or the claim of equal opportunity employer, resulting creating frustration & depravity among others working in electronic media. 

BOL chief however avoided to accept such serious allegation for the fraud done by ''aXact'' software producing company and said it’s just a sinister design of our competitors and we are going to live on 1st day of Ramadan.

Gunmen firing on community bus killed 45 & wounded 13 - a massacre in Safora Goth Karachi on Wednesday morning 13th May

Politically & socially inept Chief Minister (CM) Sind Qayem Ali Shah has no strength & strategic role using his ability & skills to curb over the rampant lawlessness in Karachi, a common perception about CM, being debated in media.

CM has completely been failed to control the unabated crimes looming in the mega city Karachi.
A city of 30 million people seems orphan with no legitimate guardian - no rule of law in place everything can be seen in Topsy-Turvies.

The police who has been boasting to curb the crime but its face has been unearthed that how meaningfully it acted on the eruption of Safora Goth massacre – and why not it was proactively sensed and foiled the attack of terrorist on a community bus that killed 45 and 13 wounded.

Karachiites are living on the mercy of criminals & terrorist otherwise Sindh Govt. has lost its statutory role - a symbol of acute mismanagement where even not a single ‘’public services industry’’ seems functional or delivering services for the benefit of people.

Whether it is Water – Sui gas supply – Electricity - Sewerage system – Uneven and broken Roads – Transports – Street lights – Land grabbers - Illegal water hydrant Dysfunctional Water and Sewerage board – Disrupted Telecommunication - Ruined Govt. Hospitals – Debilitated Govt. Schools – Unplanned Traffic signals – Poor cleaning & garbage collection services portraying city a slum area – Poor Fire brigade vehicles and broken snorkel are deficient to meet fire break out etc.

A capital city is in deplorable condition and CM pathetic behavior, says we have controlled target killing, kidnapping and ransom but he did not mention that upon whose negligence & poor intelligence the terrorist got a free hand and did massacre in Safora Goth - to whom the nation should fix responsible? Asked the sobbing mother who lost his son in this carnage.    

A complete failed govt. unable to protect & secure the lives of Karachiites - the furious & outraged people gathered in Memon Hospital Karachi, asking govt. & law enforcement agencies who claims that we have controlled the terrorism in Karachi & 70-80 percent crimes have been brought down?

CM & D.G Rangers had undertaken and assured to bring peace in Karachi, said mourners gathered at Agha Khan Medical College to receive postmortem bodies of their kith and kin killed by gunmen in Safora Goth.

An eye-witnesses said, there were 6 terrorists in 3 motor bikes attacked a community bus – on the bus were the Ismaeli passengers boarded from Al Azhar Garden (a living compound near Safora goth) for onward routine journey to Ayesha Manzil.

Among them were teachers, small business men and working women who uses the bus for their daily transport from their residential compound to Ayesha Manzil, said a survivor.

There were 60-70 Ismaeli (a specific community) passengers on board - as soon as the bus touched the main road someone keep running from an isolated building appeared and asked the bus driver to stop.

As soon as the bus stopped the six terrorists encircled the bus – some terrorist went inside the bus and some stayed outside – the terrorist kept bullet showered on the passenger for 10-15 minutes but we did not hear even a single sound certainly it had a silencer gun, the eye witnessed shared with media.

The terrorist brutally and ferociously attacked on innocent passengers who generally known a very peaceful community - never ever involves in others matter and lives calmly - most of the dead bodies as per postmortem reports had bullet holes in the faces, chest & abdomen, the terrorist fired from front of the passengers, the report said.

There are a lot of questions among the Karachiites that why Karachi bleeds always? And govt. seems helpless to do any concrete action against terrorist?

Except political statement & traditional condolence messages to the deceased family, announcing by CM a token of compensation i.e. to injured 2 lakh and the deceased 5 lakh but what happens next?

SHO suspension- I G or DIG transfers ………….Are these action seems viable and guarantees to bring the peace in Karachi and will it be a real-deterrent & shield to stop the barbarism of terrorist who are wandering with latest ammunition in hand and challenging the govt. writ?

Despite having Police & Rangers posts on the same road & around the place of incident - on every 400-500 steps there are Rangers Posts & Police Chowkis so why such brutal killing went unnoticed by law enforcement agencies? 

And unlucky passenger bus met with such attack – there were no law enforcement personnel available in those Posts/ Chowkis when the incident took place, asked by political observer.

According to the survivor the terrorist were in security uniform or in police camouflage who entered in the bus and asked us to head down, the man sitting at the back seat ordered to fire, said a woman who survived.

Also a witness seen reporting in media that driver was also killed and close to the driver either a helper or someone who saved himself from terrorist bullet - and he was the man who drove the bus and took this unfortunate bus to Memon Hospital when the news broke out in media.

Law enforcement agency however has taken someone in custody from that isolated house close to the incident – the following discussion also came in media that;

Security guards employed in Al Azhar compound also to be taken under custody to get any clue – that how terrorist knew the time of bus leaving from the compound & number of passenger generally travels?

And how terrorist immediately appeared when the bus arrived at the main road? It means someone was watching minutely the bus movement and it’s leaving time?

The road general condition is very poor, not smooth, and uneven having big potholes and bumpers so how six terrorist emerged within no time - it means they were waiting in ambush and as soon as the bus arrived they attacked?

The area looks a desert where land grabbers seems active, there are scale of empty houses under construction where the terrorist might have stayed before the crime.

An immediate bulldozer required to demolish such illegal occupancy who have encroached the lands and a constant threat to the residents – the land mafia to be eliminated to keep the area neat and clean avoiding any repetition – the same road goes ahead to Suhrab Goth the den of TTP where intermittent operation goes continue.

Was there any intelligence report for this crime if so what action had been taken by the concerned authority?

Transfer of I G or DIG Sindh or suspension of SHOs in the areas, are not the solution - assassination of 02 DSPs in a week and police killing says that terrorist have been active again in Karachi.

In one of the question that how we can get peace in Karachi – most were of the view that Police needs to be depoliticized – and the services of police being availed by CM/ MPAs at their residence & in their offices should immediately be withdrawn and to be deployed for the safety and security of the people not for the security of the govt. servants as CM demonstrated today who came to Memon Hospital and went Agha Khan Hospital too in a convoy escorting him scale of 46 police vans/ mobiles.If he reduces his protocol and heavy contingent of police for his own security how he can provide the security to Karachiites.

Similarly when Premier and Ex-President returned from Islamabad to attend meeting held in Governor House Karachi to cogitate on current tragic events took place in Safora Goth. A very heavy police convoy extended to both of them for their in and out security. 

If we withdraw such a beam of police mobiles and police personnel from the self-security of CM/ MPAs/ MNAs & other legislators and divert these security personnel to protect the people of Karachi then at least we can control somehow reducing the terrorism from Karachi as well as from the country as a whole if the legislators take it serious

Mother’s day is an opportunity to reaffirm, recommit & re-promise that we love our mother and takes care for her needs as she cared for us

Mother’s day …………should not be treated just for celebration but we should take it as a reminder & a bell to awake, revive, recognise and identify our self that how we grown up?

And this love should not be for 24 hours a day – 7 days a week – 30 days in a month or 365 days in a year but whole the life till our last – it’s a blessing for those who enjoys the presence of mother and feels happiness at home, though she is not doing anything but her overwhelming love with everyone at home adds sweet taste among family members living under the dome.

Of course our bringing up did not go automatically but there is/ was someone or the authority behind our raise who cared us – who nursed us – who fed us – who supported & helped us to live and stay healthy.

This is the Mother who enabled and ensured that we may live dynamically, energetically& determined to succeed in our life - who adorned us with the worldly needs materialistically and religiously and that’s why we are here to see the beautiful world with our own eyes – for sparkling and glittering life - for our gold and glory she sacrificed and reduce her plans and jumped over our needs.

It is mother who cared always for our progression and prosperity who preferred us on top of her needs - ignored her demands and honoured ours. She kept her desire away, preferred prioritized ours with the only approach to materialize compromising her requirements for our betterment and advancement.

Therefore it should be our first and foremost duty to respect our ‘’Mother’’ – we should care for her needs as she did for us – we should help and support her as she remained involved - her contribution & the services she rendered for us (from any point of view) should not be ignored but honor always till our last.

From our busiest time we should spare some time to sit with our Mother to look at her & embrace her and ask

  • Do you need anything Mom?
  • Can I help you Mom?
  • Can I take you to the Doctor?
  • Did you take your breakfast why not ate last night?
  • Tell me what do you want to eat?
  • Why don’t you go with us Mom for outing as we go?

These are the favor we can do with our mother as we are mature - the help and support what she extended - now she needs from us – so come ahead and do it not in words or writing something at time line but do it practically.

If you don’t respond to your mother – mind it you will be accounted for before Creator who created this universe who created parents and who became the reason of our coming in the world.

We should always salute to our ‘’Mother’’ & be remembered her for her unstinted & unparalleled support when we were like a piece of flesh where she could strangulate or throw but she did not do and brought up us as a deterrent and made us an anvil so that we can counter and face the vagaries of not only whether but the treatment of our surrounding & the society where we breath.

A mother's body remembers her babies-the folds of soft flesh, the softly furred scalp against her nose - Each child has its own entreaties to body and soul………Barbara Kingslover.

Art is the child of nature in whom we trace the features of the mothers face……… Henry Wadsworth Longefellow.

Whereas Al Mighty Allah says in Quran in Version Al Isra/ Al Israel at Ayah 23 & 24

Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him and that ye be kind to Parents whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life – say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor.

And out of kindness, Lower to them the wing of humility and say ‘’My Lord! Bestow on them Thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood’’

And in version Luqman at Ayah 14 ‘’and we have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents; in travail upon travail did this mother bear him. And in years twain was his weaning ;( hear the command) ‘’show gratitude to Me and to thy Parents; to me is (thy final) goal.
