De­te­ri­o­rat­ing law & or­der in Karachi

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - AB­DUL­LAH AHMED

I wish to draw the at­ten­tion of the read­ers and the con­cerned quar­ters in the gov­ern­ment to­wards the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing law and or­der sit­u­a­tion in the city. It seems that an­ti­so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties are in rapid ac­tion once again. Many in­ci­dents of day­light thefts and killings have been re­ported dur­ing the re­cent days, con­clud­ing that no­body is safe.

Densely pop­u­lated ar­eas, es­pe­cially those of the Cen­tral Dis­trict are un­der these ac­tiv­i­ties as well as des­o­lated ar­eas of east side are the cen­tre of such ac­tiv­i­ties and el­e­ments. The an­ti­so­cial el­e­ments are also re­port­edly back­ing not only crim­i­nals but are also in­volved in un­der­ground busi­ness. Ter­ror­ists are also wan­der­ing in the broad day­light. Street crimes, tar­get killing and even kid­nap­ping cases are ris­ing once again.

Un­for­tu­nately in spite of be­ing in the knowl­edge of the forces and au­thor­i­ties, it is ob­served that these ac­tivists are not caught red handed. These pur­suits are prov­ing poor con­di­tions of law and or­der sit­u­a­tion as well as fail­ure of all the claims about con­trol­ling of such el­e­ments in city. These el­e­ments are liv­ing as a part of the so­ci­ety. So I re­quest the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to look into this mat­ter and take nec­es­sary ac­tion im­me­di­ately. —Karachi
