The velvet glove

Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

In my life I have often come across warped, self-serving political statements but the one coming from the third time around aspiring PM truly takes the cake on all counts. It stinks not only of self-interest but of the utter disregard of something known as the people’s will and interest. It is not only absurd in its logic, it is an outright affront to something known as “democracy”, something which this aspirant doesn’t ever tire of paying lip-service to. It is an outrageous insult to the people who have long suffered under the shabby rule of the army and corrupt politicians.

Benazir Bhutto, former prime minister and chairperson of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), said on Saturday that the international community and the armed forces of Pakistan have confidence in President General Pervez Musharraf and therefore “we need to work out a solution with him”.

Editorial: Criminal politics in Lyari

Lyari Jhat Pat MarketLyari has become a byword in Karachi, and the rest of the country, for places to avoid. The carnage that shook the area on Wednesday exemplified this sentiment. More than 55 people were injured and 16 were killed when rival gangs began armed clashes using heavy weaponry, including Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs). School children and women were shot dead on the streets. The police arrived belatedly and were ineffectual. Protests by Lyari residents began yesterday outside the Karachi Press Club, with many holding keys to their locked houses in their hands saying they won’t go home until the Sindh government brings some semblance of law and order to the area.
