Baloch hints RAW role be­hind Karachi un­rest

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

LAHORE—Act­ing Ameer of the Ja­maat-e-Is­lami, Li­aqat Baloch, has said that the mur­der of renowned Qawwali star Am­jad Sabri and the ab­duc­tion of the Sindh High Court Chief Jus­tice’s son in Karachi clearly in­di­cated that RAW and its agents have be-come ac­tive once again.

In a state­ment here on Thurs­day, he said that the tar­get killers wanted to sab­o­tage the ef­forts for the restora­tion of peace in the port city. He said this was a big chal­lenge for the se­cu­rity in­sti­tu­tions of the coun­try. The JI act­ing chief said that ter­ror­ists and the cor­rupt mafias were a great threat to the coun­try’s sol­i­dar­ity and the na­tion must unite to elim­i­nate the ene­mies of peace and ter­ror­ism.

He said the corruption mafia wanted to cre­ate an at­mos­phere of an­ar­chy, fear and in­se­cu­rity in or­der to bury the de­mand for ac­count­abil­ity. How­ever, he said, that wip­ing out corruption, bribery and com­mis­sions was es­sen­tial to con­trol po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic ter­ror­ism.

He said the fail­ure in the re­cov­ery of Awais Shah had em­bold­ened the ter­ror­ists in­volved in ab­duc­tion. He said the se­cu­rity agen­cies and in­sti­tu­tions should dig out the net work of the ter­ror­ists in or­der to con­trol the fresh wave of ter­ror­ism.

Mean­while, the act­ing JI chief con­tacted the leader of the Op­po­si­tion in the Na­tional As­sem­bly Syed Khur­shid Shah, and dis­cussed with him the per­sist­ing dead­lock be­tween the gov­ern­ment and the rul­ing party on the ToR’s. The two de­cided that a joint meet­ing of the op­po­si­tion par­ties would be called af­ter Eid to dis­cuss the mat­ter.—Agen­cies
