Karachi is still a residence of different cultures. Before 1947, the city was inhabited mainly by people from the areas near the city, the people basically being Sindhis, Baluchis, Mekranis and Gujaratis.
In 1947 most of the city’s Hindu population left, and a large number of immigrants(Mohajirs) came from India. Most of these are from the Urdu Speaking parts of India. But Memons from Gujarat and small quantities of communities from other areas also arrived. Giving Karachi variety of all the provinces and parts of India. After independence immigrants has been coming to the city from different parts of Pakistan and made large Punjabi, Pathan, Bengali and Hazara communities to grow in Karachi.
In 1971 split of Pakistan,Karachi accommodated a large influx of mainly Urdu Speaking people from the former East Pakistan. Again in the 1980s a large number of Afghan refugees stormed into the city due to its business attractions and cosmopolitan culture.
This city started expanding without any demographic research and neither provincial govt nor central departments bother to foresee the future problems of settling of such massive migrants from neighboring areas.
Karachi initially descanted into mayhem, chaos and then tended toward continuous process of violence just due to negligence of state management and blood-stained politics of the so-called stake holders of Karachi. Scenes of clashes, violence, firing, deaths have become routine life of harassed people of Karachi.
Ethnic and sectarian violence surely reared it ugly head due to weak control of law enforcing units and then apparently with the connivance of political and religious parties who fond violence a useful ploy to escalate their political agenda and commercial interests.After 198s owing to interest of military establishment Karachi political and religious groups were backed to flourish armed politics in peaceful and business doing community of Karachi who had no history of ethnic or religious bloody riots even at the time of blood soaked partition of 1947.
Our unstable Present is indication of Past blunders and wrong manipulation at right time. Karachi is once again burning, soaking in blood and smoke. Killers are presenting themselves as real stake holders conducting non stop human target killing. It is so interesting that every one knows what is behind smoke screen but no one is trying to cure it as aftereffects of Naser ullah babar operation’s are still haunting the police men of Karachi.Not one or two dozens but 182 police inspectors were target killed who participated in operation of Babar -Suddle joint venture.It was all done in Musharraf regime who proudly supported MQM on the basis of his ethnic background and ruined all state efforts did under a command of pukhtoon general.
So present situation of Karachi under psychotic leadership of Altaf hussian, Zulfiqar mirza and Shahi sayyed is clear example that Karachi is under control of political mafia whose strings are moving from somewhere else.When their strings are moved they start acted violently, abruptly untill the required situation of harassment is achieved and then they all sent each other flowers of friendship for showing us their intensity of so called Reconciliation to further shock and terrify people of Pakistan.
It is so clear the puktoons , religious groups, MQM ,PPP and their military wing responsible for this routine massacre of common people. Their land grabbing , drug mafia and target killers are involved in this violence. What is most reprehensible is that in failures to public services they feel no shame to use ethnic card to incite hatred between communities for their dirty politics. . The invitation to an army action in Karachi from same political dons is surely meaning the collective failure of the political forces to manage the affairs of the country satisfactorily.For the last 20 years short-lived orders like ban on pillion riding, shoot to sight , calling rangers after sweeping rivals and promise of improved police infrastructure,nothing is improving the political and administrative structure of Karachi and its blood and terror situation.Rather than Govt is focusing to gather intelligence and information and then conduct targeted operations against the miscreants, it always looks busy to disgusting politics of over obliged politics to its alliance groups for carry on weak and shaky government by ruining all kind of public and national interests.All parties in Karachi following the rule of killing and torture when they want to dictate their own political terms to political alliance and rivals or to the power structure. If they are unable to control the chaotic situation through habitual tactics of intimidation,they immediately anointing itself as the victim of this system which is under their control for last 3 and half-year.
So whether it is wrath of Allah in form of heavy rains or bad mood of Altaf bhai and Zulfiqar mirza , it is only people of Karachi who are front men victim of all God and man made disasters. After hearing latest blame game of political leadership on each other labeling each others as, traitor, killer, Bhatha khoor, land mafias etc and then issuing letter of reconciliation to same targets, one must know that all are part of same plot but act and react differently as per personal and party gains. The city has become a cultural , economic and administrative graveyard and will further down rated in all fields, if this kind of leadership will not be removed from the political scenario of Karachi.Karachi people including traders, students, labors, workers should make joint efforts to sideline these paper lions living in sate security and placing their lives and future of next generation at serious risks.
