High tides of target killing in Karachi:

Karachi has been through in state of rise in target killing mostly of  which are based on  ethnic and religious differences among armed groups  ruling  in different areas of Karachi.

There have been 1981 deaths in the first ten months of 2010 with the month of August witness to the highest death toll of the year with 162 people murdered. The month of June saw the second highest death toll of 135 people being killed in various localities of the city.

At least 60 to 70  persons were killed in the wave of violence continued as such in 2011 in the metropolis ,Wali Khan Babar, a reporter of private news channel, was also among the victims. He was shot dead in Liaquatabad in first month of 2011.

Baluchistan turmoil:

According to partial data complied  by different  groups thousand of people are being taken or killed by local law enforcing  agencies and in retaliation these armed baloch groups  start attacking govt personals and installations.In 2009, 277 persons including 152 civilians,88 security personals died in different incident.Same  kind of data of killing of Pakistanis Vs Pakistanis is seen in 2010 where almost 200 people were reportedly killed  in different incident of  target killing  and  armed rivalry between    govt and baloch groups.

Karachi Violence Toll Rises to 16

Crime Against woman

Some 6,221 cases of violence against women were reported in the country from January to August 2010 including 778 cases of murder, 302 cases of honor killing and 1,611 cases of sexual assault.

These are few heart breaking deadly event happening in Pakistan and this process of self-destruction is going on in our soil for last may years under supervision for our elected govt and Pak army 5th largest army of the world.

Conclusion:

What is this going on around us.??

Our mosques are looking like barracks of war zones where prayers are held under armed security.

Friday and  funeral prayers  are being attended by people in the fear that it might be funeral prayer for victims of next  terrorist attack.

Beard Pukhtoon men are  being  considered as death threat in our harassed society which are living in this phobia for last 6, 7 years

Our  schools, parks, recreation areas , shopping markets all are showing terrible scene giving us feel that we are passing life in insecure environment.These after effects of WAR ON TERROR is badly effecting the  psychological development of young minds who are witnessing blood bath on daily basis, so situation is more worst than our thoughts for survival of our next generation.

It does not matter where the terrorists or criminals are pouring in our system giving rise to all kind of criminal activities,but it is clear they could have hoodwinked the security system any where any time. They are  highly active in all big cities  where major concern of law enforcing and security  agencies are to provide security to only VIPs of state and people are left on the mercy of less force and their fate.

The issue of drone attacks taking flight from Pakistan and has woeful plights of all Pakistanis but  from ground realities we  get more heartbreaking facts that it claims that locals usually appreciate drone attacks when they compare it with the Pakistan Army’s attacks, which always result in collateral damages. People said that when a drone would hover over the skies, they wouldn’t be disturbed and would carry on their usual business because they would be sure that it does not target the civilians, but the same people would run for shelter when a Pakistani jet would appear in the skies because of its indiscriminate firing. They say that even in the same compound only the exact room — where a high value target (HVT) is present — is targeted and others in the same compound are spared.

It is also very interesting feature that for last 10 years Pakistan is  receiving the most post-9/11 U.S. military funding, yet has failed to ferret out al Qaeda. It is strong perception that Taliban leaders from our soil perhaps not be eliminated as it  could terminate supply of dollars directly into the pockets who are legitimizing this unreasonable war  in our territory.

All government measures   coming from Federal and   provincial  circles have been failed to end this wave of terrorism .Continuous  increase of drone and suicidal attacks all over the country specially in those areas where army is still controlling security situation is giving  us clear message that  we have been thrown into death valley where death angels have become more powerful than our proclaimed  leaders  and security agencies those  should  be held responsible for our in-house security.

    Friendly fire killed 13 Pakistani soldiers whose deaths were initially blamed on militants in the Taliban-infested tribal belt on the Afghan border, a commander said Tuesday.
    Security officials at first said 14 soldiers were killed during fighting Monday in the Shindhand area of Khyber, part of Pakistan’s tribal belt that Washington has branded a global headquarters of Al-Qaeda.

    This was not happened first time but many times Pakistani units deputed in different areas of FATA and Wana fired on each other.
    As usual our defense ministry is not in position to make Army management accountable for this continuous criminal; negligence in the line of duty.

    Pakistan’s economy has suffered in the past for many reaons,
    a fast growing population, mismanagement and corruption issues and a costly, ongoing confrontation with neighboring countries. However, IMF-approved government policies, bolstered by foreign investment some how kept alive macroeconomic recovery but terrorism is destroying all and you are dipping in sea of debits in coming years..

  3. Nazia says:

    It is not Pakistan’s economy that is suffering because of militarism in Pakistan but it is changing our cultural aspects, living styles, social moral values all things are changing around more than our thoughts.Now we have become cocktail of different problems and no solution is being provided to us on state levl which is in mission of creating more problems for common Pakistanis.
