Altaf Bhai hanging on roundabouts and Walls of Karachi

Karachi was once known for its huge absorptive capacity for people of all kinds of culture,languages and background are now presenting the picture of horror and terror for its residents.This city was known since 1880 for its huge business ventures ,harbor activities and secular culture.Even violence of 1947 didn’t produce any impact of spreading riots related to cast, religious and cast basis to its locals and financial activities.Since the creation of MQM this city of wonders has been slowly losing the environment of peace and harmony for its locals and migrants who were moved here in search of jobs, trade and different economical ventures.
This city never stopped its journey of economic struggles and still maintain its top position as only financial hub of Pakistan through which more than 50% of trade and business deals of Pakistan are done .One day suspension of its financial activities due to riots and scenes of violence costs billion rupees loss, but this surprise city again rise its financial status within few working days of peace .
My Visit to this city after two years has brought me in state of despair that nothing has improved here so far that can be acknowledged in terms of peace and harmony which are the utmost requirement of this burning city for last many years .
Some say that Mustafa kamal has spread the network of fly overs in Karachi and now people are enjoying signal fee corridors.
Is that only requirement of any huge city to be presented through its number of flyovers or overheads by neglecting the maintenance of street roads and street lights in almost all areas of Karachi.
Law and order is showing the worst picture, a strong indicator of failures of working of Law enforcing agencies in all civic and industrial areas of Karachi.
Mushroom growth of armed gangs in all areas of Karachi has destroyed the secular history of Karachi.All major parties are backing these gangs who just need a minor reason to pull trigger on each other any time any day.
Few medressahs have widened there networks by grabbing or purchasing nearby homes and land area.Residents living close to them are seeing suspicious containers unloading their and nobody ever bothered or dared to check what is inside these containers.
Power and water shortages are creating extreme kind of frustration among residence of this city.
Expenses of generator and water tankers are extra burden on Karachities along with depressing utility bills.This is so disgusting to see that govt that has been failed to check the illegal connections of Electricity theft and now people are using domestic gas connections to run their generators .It provides them less cost of power in lengthy period during absence of electricity but has rapidly increased the gas demand on domestic rate.
Few parks have been developed in last tenure of Mustafa kamal but still lots of residential areas have no such facility for residents of Karachi to enjoy their evening and free times in green areas.Extreme insecure civic condition is one of reason people confined them in their homes as no body knows when and where riots would get its start and in an hour whole Karachi is seized by horrific scenes of firing, and target killing.
There is still rise in kidnapping, street crimes and armed robbery and people are making self barricades, hiring personal guards and using fire arms for their personal security.
In this situation of insecurity, confusion and mistrust on Govt functionaries ,one funny thing is seeing on rise and that is Altaf bahi new pictures with variety of latest dress get up are hanging all alone on all major roundabouts, big buildings and major govt buildings.From far away side it looks advertisement of some dress show or some sort of marketing of fair and lovely cream but when one comes closer to picture ,he/she can see the false slogans of mqm representing the bravery of his runaway leader .Such pictures are the height of mockery on insecure and affected citizens of Karachi who has completely lost sense of his civic rights under the mafia games of political parties in which MQM is the leading the race of terror and horror.
Can any one think that by showing the picture gallery of their coward leader they can win the heart of People of Karachi or this kind of show is being arranged for foreign forces that are backing and financing MQM leadership to keep control of Karachi for their future plans .
I still searched for real mahajir, Urdu speaking or a real Karachi person who actually praised this leader absent party .This is also a record which should be placed in Guinness book of world record that Altaf bhai never led his party for a tenure within its local premises as much period of 19 years he is controlling it through his UK telephone line.
Some people claim to MQM workers are openly taking political gains,government jobs and illegitimate business deals via this party.They are bestowed by such offers without passing any kind of merits or eligibility criteria and only merit before their selection is to raise the slogans like JIYA mqm or Altaf bhai when and where require as per demand of MQM in charges.
Just due to such kind of leaderless leadership where even its only leader is absent from the scene,MQM can not get rid of its label of heading this horror and terror Party.The impression of Altaf hussain is still dominant as a cult of Karachi politics and his fake type exhibitions through funny pictures are supporting such past repute as such.
The wave of target killing of Karachi people that has gripped this city for last many years has become a real fear factor for its working class..On the other hand both lawlessness and this target killing have become controlling factor for all political parties, mafia gangs and mini criminal groups to control the area of their choices.In local terms it is known as operation clean up of opponents by seizing all kind of actions of LEA and even force of Ranger become ineffective in maintaining law and order situation of Karachi.
So Karachi people are living on igniting dynamite.Nobody knows when it would be blown and killed many innocent or political rivals for satisfying egoistic nature of political people who are known as leaders of Karachi.
Altaf bhai started his journey on old bike and now owner of UK branded vehicles and luxurious villas of London are controlling billion of Karachi people like sting puppets. Shahi Sayeed a rickshaw driver now purchasing high-rise buildings in UAE, Babar ghauri our all time shipping minister started his career as waiter is now big buyer of property of Karachi. Raza abidi who was known for his old cars in Gulshan Iqbal residence is now moving in different kind of latest 4 to 6 4 wheel drives with all govt facilities.So all are dipping fingers on personal greed without judging the severity of situation.Every street and state crimes and sectarian riots are being successfully executed under the smiley photos of Altaf Dada, one and all in all controller of Karachi with the help of local agencies, bhutta,kidnapping and land mafias and few MQM claimed leaders.
