Karachi again has been enveloped with terrorism

Once again target killing, kidnapping and ransom and street crimes are at large.

But law enforcement agencies claim that it has reduced the heightening crimes from Karachi up to 70% - D G Rangers in his report shared with the nation said that target killing, kidnapping and ransom and street crimes were eminent.

While in its real perspective we don't see any obvious changes - still the Karachiites are facing the crimes with the same tone and impacts - kidnapping and ransom - target killing are also at full swing & does not testify the claims.

Recent kidnapping of Owais Shah son of Sajjad Shah Chief Justice of Sind High court
from Shopping Mall & target killing of Amjad Sabri a well renowned Sufi singer was gunned down while on the way to TV station Karachi.

Besides, dead bodies either at Northern by pass, Sea-view, in remote area of Karachi Layari, Landhi, Korangi, Malir, Gulshan-e-Hadid, Baldia town, Defense & Clifton, Gulistan-e-Jauhar, Surjani Town, New Karachi and Shah Faisal colony have been the caption in media for corpses found in the area who killed them? A big question mark for the agency.

Though raids from police and Rangers and shoot on sights is continued from law enforcement agencies yet there is no total curb but Karachites living with the same torture and agony as it was year before.

Even at Sehr time while Muslims taking Sehr during Ramadan the slides run from TV channels that Police and Rangers raided at multiple localities for multifaceted aspects in Karachi and caught the culprit involved in crimes – Rangers raiding at people residence in early morning when the Muslim are taking sehr. – Really it shocks & stuns us when we read trigger - very depressive & frustrated situation says that we are not safe.

This is the one side of the coin but when we see the other side there is people's hue and cry, agitation and protest for prolong power outage and water disconnection in the their area

It does not look that we are a civilized nation and living peacefully – Its not a war torn area but law abiding nation where calm and tranquility should have our identity really looking us a dream on the land which never ever seems us emerging.

When we will be a good nation – when our police will be honest and law abiding while asking citizen where is your license, where yours IDs and insurance papers etc and booty along with papers otherwise keeping traffic jam and checking motorist doc, keeping a long queue on hold in such sizzling heat while the temperatures touching 38 degree Celsius in Karachi. Its Ramadan and heat stroke so why don’t traffic flow is kept running instead obstructing for different reasons.

We live with terror and our lives have been traumatized even if we open our door or main gate we look outside and ask several times who is there? Nobody has a CCTV camera at the door but only trust and believe that whoever is there will be a good man or good woman. Now a days a gang four to five men along with a woman knocks the door showing flyer of orphanage and asking Zakat and then pushes the door opener to go inside pointing revolver and then dacoity in broad day light it happened in Gulshan-e-Omiar and Rufi Sweet Homes. 

Day light robbery in different area of Karachi is continuing – Gulshan-e-Iqbal & Gulistan-e-Jauhar & Gulshan-e-Omair & Rufi & Sweet Homes had a house robbery in mercury day light 
Mobile snatching in the street and other valuables if you are alone in the street at gun point, ladies purse snatching from shopping malls, police vandalism in the middle of the roads asking booty.
Roaming police mobiles sitting gangster in while plane cloths with heavy guns in their hand. Similar vehicle like police mobile with forge numbers is involved in regular crimes across the city. Late night they loot the motorist and pedestrian or clearly ask for money, said a person who was squared near Quaid-e-Azam mausoleum on the way to University road.

There is no rule of law in Karachi – Water hydrant running under patronage of Karachi water & sewerage Board (KW&SB) in Gulshan-e-Omair/ Rufi sweet homes. Residents are crying for a single drop of water. MD Water Board and one Asif Qaudri along with Saifullah sitting at water Hydrant in Gulshan-e-Omair are selling water earning a lot on the cost of Residents

Whereas Residents are paying property tax to Cantonment Board Malir (CBM) and paying monthly Bill to KW&SB but no avail.

Due to long queue of water tankers parking on double road & intersection closure - normal life of the Inhabitants has been terrible – mother seems unable to drop her kid to school and collect them back due to heavy water tankers parking close to the Residential houses despite roads debilitated condition with big ditches and potholes getting your spinal cord affected.

People demands to shift water hydrants from Gulshan-e-Omair and Rufi Sweet Homes Opposite Race course Karachi Safora goth and give a peaceful life, said a seasoned sharing his misery for water.

Currently there is no barrier in the internal street though it had but owing to Ranger operation all such gates from the society had been removed resulting the area has been converted into a thorough fare and robbery & mobile snatching have been a regular practice in the area.

A Clarion call of the day from 200 million people of Pakistan to get us Corruption Free Pakistan soliciting NAB to save us from ‘’corrupt political leadership’’

Open letter to PAKISTAN CORRUPT MINISTERS & Head of the State who stashed govt. funds & misappropriated country Current Account - The govt. must spend on welfare of general public giving them a welfare state & genuinely ensuring good governance [not on paper but in practicality]. They neither performed nor delivered mandatory services to masses ……dashing hopes around.

The allocated budgets & loans acquired from external agencies did not consume on people that caused reducing the living condition of a normal man from worse to worst and that’s the reason one third Pakistani living below poverty line, reported ministry of planning.
But from most secured sources there are 60-65% people in 200 million [populace] in the country passing their life critically they don’t have access to quality food and health matters in the country.
Education, health sectors – current picture of bad governance - the country would never earn respect among the comity of nations unless it eliminated corruption – Rising corruption and inefficiency were eating away the country’s roots and was a major barrier cropping into the way of national progress and prosperity.
Underlining the need for initiating self accountability in all sectors of society i.e. across the board ‘’we will start it with ourselves, otherwise, the dream for a welfare state will not come true’’ said Chief Justice (CJ) of Pakistan in his address to members of the high court bar association 
Currently everyone talking about ‘’Corruption, Bad governance and Nepotism’’, unluckily despite 30 years of military rule the country could not have the kind of political leadership that transformed China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore, said CJ Pakistan
I will not reduce the weight of unbridled corruption that has enveloped Pakistan utterly, its not trivia & frivolous but of course a serious issue for the country - needs to address & redress [with no more delay] otherwise its precipitating or headlong graph pushing the country to the brink of anarchy if trends of looting and plundering national wealth continues people will have to respond!
A heinous crime i.e. stashing govt. funds - shrugging shoulder by saying that it is chronic & uncured epidemic - a menace & mafia that has eclipsed across the globe - getting it generalized to close the discussion – no – never - we will have to raise voice to eliminate its roots – we will have to identify the corrupt faces to kick them out of national politics for no more participation in Country Election as the thieves are not allowed to shatter & batter the country structure – those who do not love to his/ her homeland not deserves to live in the country & work as national politicos.
A life time ban indeed is imperative or getting the looted amount back to the county to stable the rattling economy & to pay off the heightening national debt that deepened & shoot-up due to vested interest of corrupt leadership.
Therefore law immediately should be enacted to declare a corruption free country to our generation – its 69 years we did not embrace our mother i.e. motherland but disgraced since its independence or whenever the civil govt. took over the charge to run state affairs maimed it more - we have been ruined but no more corruption please!, said an Economist  
No policy or reform will work unless we put rein on corrupt elements otherwise rolling the ball will bring us nothing until we constitute a drastic law to eliminate corruption..... the only solution of this crisis.
Its a clarion call of the day to arrest such corrupt politicians & head of the states and more candidly after Panama blast that unveiled & jolted the whole peninsula - an explosion of betrayal by political leadership with their own countrymen are certainly not pardonable but needs to bring them to the task…book them for justice. .
Your position goes more controversial, despicable, obnoxious, & odium when you hold public office and do ‘money stashing’ – a secret deposits, hoarding and hiving up in other states for future use – avoiding tax payment – treating offshore state a safe haven to hide your income.
According to law you become accountable before parliamentarian and general public too when commit such crime - as you being custodian of public money does not have right to misappropriate and embezzle but to invest public money on public welfare instead to stash it?
Every stake holder who stashed money must be accountable before the parliament to figure out the corruption that how money went out of country, what were the source and routes followed to transfer national wealth in Panama or Virgin Island instead to invest for people betterment, the fraudsters who impoverished its people and damage the whole economy should not go unpunished..
A general perception among states & its people that money stashed were meant specifically & compulsorily for people progression and prosperity must have been spent upon them but the Head of the state and Ministers misappropriated, embezzled & misused the fund - They groomed their business empire by opening companies at onshore and offshore instead to consume the country wealth in the country & the tax-payer money for people peaceful life getting them out of ‘’vicious cycle of poverty ‘but it not happened..

It is a chronic ailment needs immediate treatment - proper legislation is in offing among countries to safeguard its people from the clutches of corruption – a curse not involved by developing countries but the developed have also been encompassed.

A general preview among the nation that whoever plundered and looted national wealth need to be prosecuted because of persecution & oppression - hang them till death for the crime perpetrated by the corrupt political leadership the only solution.

Who usurped people rights & deliberately put the masses in miserable & dreadful state, such criminals does not require another feelings or empathy…a fortiori to remove them……once for all.

More precisely CORRUPTION is a cancer & has been part of political leadership - some terms a culture penetrated in their nerve & part of their arteries - despite all it’s a clear robbery - Massive corruption - not only eats you but eats your country - deserves to be accounted and tried.

Besides, source and routes to be examined - illegal sources from where such money came and illegitimate routes from where such money transported from the home country to the desired country. 

Your nerve goes compressed when study the corruption being enjoyed by political leadership in Pakistan.

The money they take in the name of people welfare program or earmark the budget for multiple overheads are stolen - they misuse the power conferred upon them – they take loans from the banks even [running in the country] not million but billion on the fake names of companies and after sometime they get it written off on fictitious reasons. An old practice where trillions had been lost that impacted of course national exchequer but no govt. took action against defaulters because they were & are partners in the crime such culture in Pakistan mushroomed from 1970s.

Those were poor in 70s are poor in 2016 too – the loaned amount taken in 70s were Rs 30 billion now it has been touched to Rs 22,000 Billion so who is sufferers certainly the general public - common man.

In 70s each head were owed to pay Rs 500/= but now (2016) it has been augmented to pay off by every head Rs 110,000/= each. Every child, male, female and elder have been indebted to pay off the loaned amount Rs 22 trillion - the external debt burden on the country going up by the ratio of 3 trillion annually, the highlighted debt scenario had been presented publicly in electronic media

How it increased of course due to poor planning and mischievous mechanism to loot & plunder national wealth - cheat people of Pakistan instead to uplift, progress and prosper - with good economic policies and giving them basic amenities & peaceful life…..all such claims obviously has been traditional.

In practicality it is meaningless before CORRUPT MINISTERS – their only agenda to paralyze the country and weaken its people – don’t do anything but just complete the tenure and go - no sincere and honest with this motherland as we see the growing trends among politicos.
A shameless – immodest & immoral character - disgusting & disgraceful deserves to be stoned till death. The ‘’angry mob’’ agitating for power outage in their area. Instead to take the CORRUPT MINISTERS in the court where they even buy the judge and deliberately prolong the case and even remove the evidences as ex premier Asif Ali Zardari (AAZ) did in his case.

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) inquiry had been instituted against AAZ where 300 pages were found missing, NAB stated in its reports. AAZ had been getting bails in every appearance in the court.

Role of then NAB Chairman Admiral (Retired) Fasih Bukhari (FB) had been controversial among Judiciary - whenever then Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Supreme court would ask FB to arrest ex president AAZ due to his involvement in corruption cases – FB instead to arrest AAZ or issue summon to arrest he used to visit from Islamabad to Karachi and meet AAZ in Karachi Bilawal House. So how we could expect unbiased and impartial trial if the then NAB chairman himself was reluctant and avoiding to discharge his onerous responsibility to try AAZ

USD $ 500,000/- was recovered from Ms. Ayan Ali a model Girl - she had been arrested at immigration counter in Karachi while boarding for Dubai. Since 1 year she has been appearing in the court but not charged yet. The court has granted bail and asking govt. to remove her name from ECL. The custom police inspector who caught her red handed was gunned down. Govt. did not provide for their sustenance he was the only bread earner, said deceased family.

Did the court ask from Ms. Ayyan Ali whose money was that? From where and who handed her over to carry $ 500k to UAE - it is vivid that even the judiciary has been corrupted – the institution are not playing their due role and leaving the ‘’corruption’’ to thrive more getting masses poorer from poor.

DG Ranger before initiating its Karachi operation had public a press report where they had mentioned the corruption figure in Karachi alone were Rs 270 billion in Sindh govt. elaborating the crimes like land grabbing, encroachments, Bhatta Mafia, target killing and misused of authority in various ministries etc. Smelling the raid 70 MPA/ MNAs got pre-arrest bail though NAB has been alerted and chasing them.

Month before premier Nawaz Shareef (NS) also scolded NAB chairman and asked him not to tease the business tycoons who found involved in corruption cases. If the premier interferes in the institution how the NAB will discharge its institutional duties, said a seasoned politician.   

Money stashes whether in Panama or Virgin Island – in UK or UAE - in USA or Switzerland - in Middle East or Pakistan are the serious offences and needs accountability & punitive action - indeed making the punishment exemplary so that a categorical message must pass that whoever will do ‘’corruption’’ will face the dire consequences.

Their properties must be confiscated and he/ she be barred & banned [not to take part] in national politics henceforth for the whole life…….then we can save Pakistan and restore trust of 200 million people who obviously have been tired of abhorrent deed of politicians & their obscene practices.

A general preview about Corrupt Ministers - It’s a grave concern that how the cash had been cached and from which source it had been earned – to whom you usurped? From whom you snatched and whose rights you deprived & strangulated the desires that you had infused in your voters?

You did not mind that who enabled you to get in the assembly but when you assumed your offices – you forgot the whole commitment you had with them. On the name of your constituency development you got funds but instead to invest for people progression you kept in your pocket or sent the whole crunch in offshore companies. Does not matter if you are a member of provincial assembly or national assembly in either case fund came to your hand but you misappropriated & embezzled the whole sum? Was it justifiable?

How selfish you are? How mean you are? How greedy you are? How bastardized the whole fund? You did not spend even a single fills on your people but you stashed & hived up the fund in travelling trolleys - in a water tank – under the carpet of your sitting room – in a bakery - in a metal box buried in your lawn? - all methods of stashing came in media…..you cannot deny, listen the voice of angry people!.

Really we hate you, said whoever watched the news divulged and ran in electronic media – unbelievable – everyone were breathless & stunned when NAB Baluchistan raided the residence of Finance secretary Baluchistan Mustaq Raeesani and recovered Rs 730 millions from his house.

The money had been stuffed in 14 travelling trolleys filled with bundle of new minted currency really had incensed the room with specific smell, said NAB officer when the team were counting notes through note counter..

NAB Baluchistan also recovered Jewelry & other valuables nearly Rs 40 million along with share & bonds and cach of foreign currencies were also found from Raeesani house - Raeesani was involved in Real-estate business during raid outnumbered personal properties in many cities also was found.

NAB Baluchistan also had kept Mushtaq Raeesani under surveillance since 3 years for the cases pertaining to alleged embezzlement of local government funds amounting to nearly Rs 1.5 billion and misappropriation of funds reserved for Public Sector Development Program (PSDP) during the year of 2013-2015. How cruel Raeesani?  

NAB Baluchistan has arrested former adviser to CM Finance, Mir Khalid Khan Langov in a mega corruption case where he is alleged to involve with Mushtaq Raeesani accused of embezzling Billions of Rupees from the local government development funds. Raisani and three others have been remanded in NAB custody for investigation. 
Baluchistan is the most poorest among other province in Pakistan where 90% people are living below poverty line but pitiless, remorseless & callous Finance Secretary Mushtaq Raeesani ruined the province for his own satiation - he did not spend but stashed the funds that were meant to serve people of Baluchistan.
Such criminals must be hanged till death - this is the only solution if we do legislation to hang the ‘’corrupt leaders’’ whoever misappropriates & embezzles the govt. funds, said Jamshed Dasti & other MNA during press conference [off the parliament building] otherwise the menace will go more powerful as we are looking since 70s - Legislation for corruption has been mandatory and it should be?.  
NAB Baluchistan conducted raid [on a tip off Asad Shah] an accomplice of Mushtaq Raeesani on a bakery situated at Samungli Road Quetta and recovered Rs 5.7 million gold, foreign currency & property papers. 

Further, NAB Baluchistan recovered Rs 59 million from the former chairman of Baluchistan Development Authority (BDA) Saadat Anwar and his facilitator Abdul Hakeem - Anwar was accused of misusing his authority and causing huge loss to the national exchequer in a Doobandi Tuba Achakzai Road project in District Killa Abdullah of the province. 
NAB Baluchistan conducted an inquiry and found that the connivance of BDA officials and contractors resulted in a loss of Rs 196 million to national kitty.
NAB Baluchistan recovered over Rs 540 million in 2015

NAB Baluchistan has arrested 14 Ex ministers for mega fraud and misused of authority.

NAB arrested adviser of former CM KPK Amer Haider Hoti

However NAB current Chairman Chaudhry Qamar Zaman seems untiring and persistent to eliminate the menace of corruption from the county. He is not only after politicians but heads of other trades are also on the hit list of NAB Chairman. 

NAB also to investigate the corruption charges against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif which were initiated 15 years ago during the Musharraf era but remained inconclusive. 

Two separate investigations are presently under progress against the prime minister. In one of the cases Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif and others are alleged of misusing the authority in the construction of a road from Raiwind to Jati Umra, the residence of the Sharifs family, the case is pending with the NAB since 2000 and involves the alleged misappropriation of Rs 125 million. 

In other cases, the prime minister is accused of making illegal appointments in the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). This inquiry is pending against him since 1999. 

Similarly, case against Asif Ali Zardari related to assets beyond his known sources of income has been still under trial since 2001.  

Besides, case against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar was also shown in the list of mega corruption cases – Dar was accused of misusing authority and having assets beyond known means.

NAB Sindh also has geared up its efforts to arrest corrupt politicians including Provincial Ministers and Bureaucrats. Investigation however has been started against;

a)   Mir Munawwar Talpur who is brother-in-law of ex president Asif Ali Zardari and husband of Fariyal Talpur

b)   Sharjeel Inam Memon
- c) Pir Mazhrul Haq

cd) Muhammad Ali Malkani 

e) Dost Muhammad Rahu 

ff) Gyan Chand Israni  

g) Ali Mardan Shah 

h) Rauf Khosa 

i)  Noor Muhammad Shah 

j)  Makhdoom Jamiluz Zaman and 

k) Syed Owais Muzaffar Alias Tappi.

According to sources, NAB Sindh is investigating into corruption of billions of rupees and misuse of power against above mentioned MPAs and provincial ministers.

Some of them though have left the country but NAB will use its power & bring these criminals back to the country to recover the looted amount, said NAB team member -nobody above the law.  

The NAB Sindh is investigating against 148 politicians, police officers and other civil bureaucrats in the light of statements of gangster Uzair Baloch and other 28 close associates of ex president Asif Zardari who are under arrest

The investigation against Sindh former Information Minister Sharjeel Memon is being carried out on the written complaint of a Director of Sindh Information Department for being involved in corruption of Rs 5 Billion.

The NAB has also included the details revealed by Dr Asim Hussain into the investigation against above-mentioned personalities.

Sharjeel Memon was number one on the agenda he is accused of embezzling Rs 4 billion in an alleged advertisement distribution scam & approx Rs 2 Billion he had stashed in his house under the carpet, media reported. 

Not only that among the Sindh rulers there are some who are allegedly involved in land grabbing but also a few aides of the federal government have also their share in the alleged loot and plunder of the wealth of the people of Sindh. 

It is said that one such case recently taken up by the Supreme Court, the involved land is worth over Rs 500 billion. The apex court had sought a report from the NAB on 530 acres and 341 acres mangrove-covered land in Karachi which allegedly involved some big names including an aide of the prime minister. 

NAB said it has recovered Rs 265 billion in looted money since its inception and has deposited the amount back to the national exchequer. A recent Transparency International report rated Pakistan 126 in the Corruption Perception Index, an improvement from 175.

NAB has also indicted former petroleum minister Dr Asim Hussain and five others in a corruption case involving Rs 462 Billion

NAB is committed to eradicate corruption taking every fills into accountability apparatus & zero tolerance policy towards corruption, said Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry in a press release. 

There are 176 corruption cases lying with NAB need to be sorted out – the modus operandi moves that the complaint is first sent for verification and the next step it it is sent for inquiry and then for investigation and after that a reference is filed. 

NAB submitted a report in the Supreme Court of Pakistan for the corruption rendered in Sindh police where national treasury had suffered a loss Rs 2 Billion due to purchase of uniforms, cars and construction of buildings by Sindh Police, media reported. 

If I conclude the debate on corruption it is vivid that not only politicians are corrupt but people of other trades too are corrupt – politician misuse their authority, misappropriate and embezzle govt. allocated funds, loot and plunder national wealth on different excuse instead to invest on people - for people and for what the politicians or political leadership take oath to serve masses but they don’t do rather stash the amount deferring & ignoring the progression and prosperity of the countrymen.

Similarly the Business tycoons, Real-estate executive, Media houses owners, Bureaucrats, Secretaries, Govt. officials, Industrialist at small and large scale, Law enforcing agencies, Police & armed forces, Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Chartered accountants, Architect. People from public and private sectors etc are too corrupt and everyone at his/ her desk are enjoying with corruption this is only continued because there is no Corruption law in place - if you don't put the rein it will go more wild and will bite everyone.

In most of the cases they are greasing the palm of ministers in provincial and national assemblies and taking benefits but upon whose cost – naturally the ‘’ultimate user’’ or prey of this hunting is a ‘’common man’’ who is being bulldozed from both sides whether govt. or businessmen.

It refers the case of Malik Riaz (MR) a Real estate owner who built Bilawal House in Lahore for Asif Ali Zardari (AAZ) a fortress where 10,000 people inside can attend the party politics meeting - well built helipad etc.

MR said that he gifted the empire to ex president AAZ - why MR gifted naturally he took a lot from AAZ in return into the shape of lands at a peanut price in Sindh?.

And for Nawaz Shareef daughter (Maryam) MR gifted BMW Car & MR also built a palace in Lahore for Nawaz Shareef.

Why MR a Real estate owner presented the costly car to Maryam that of course he might had taken multiple support in shape of land in Punjab and other unconstitutional favor. The matter leaked in media during interview with MR & TV anchors Mehr Bukhari & Mubashir Luqman when they were debating on corruption of Arsalan Iftikhar son of Iftikhar Chaudry retired Supreme court judge - MR a billionaire and he buys what he wants greasing the palm of sitting minister and head of the states, as evidence shows

Corrupt politicians remained engaged in deceitful behavior and practiced trickery, fraud & connived with the suffering of people after arriving in the assembly - looks them disdainfully.

It has been imperative to enact law for CORRUPTION whoever finds guilty hang him/ her till death to cleanse Corruption cancer from Pakistan.

Its 69 years and we have no genuine and true political leadership in the country – 30 years we remained under shade of military rule and since 39 years under the influence of corrupt leaders. The time is not far when people will come to the street and lynch the CORRUPT LEADERS, said the infuriated mob, holding play cards & banners asking to give them POWER & WATER not getting them since months – unscheduled power breakdown has made them mad – 10 hours power recession has been daily practice in Karachi.
