    KARACHI:
    Noting the low morale of Karachi’s police, the Supreme Court issued orders to the inspector general of police to report in a month on the disappearance or murders of all policemen who took part in the Karachi operations of 1992 and 1996.

    “[The police] are conscious of the fact that so many [of them] who took part in the operations of 1992 and 1996 have disappeared or have been eliminated,” said the court in its order on the suo motu proceedings into Karachi’s violence.

    The court agreed with assessments provided during the hearings, “that about 30 to 40 per cent of the police officers are non-cooperative”, not just because of political appointments but also because of the fear.

    They are punished for doing their duty if it runs counter to the political objectives of the party in power and on the other, they are afraid of being shot by the men they have apprehended or their associates.

    A former police officer and an important character in Operation Clean-up told The Express Tribune that he was the lone survivor as all his men who took part in that action had been targeted and killed one after another. “We lost most of our men from 2000 to 2004 during the Pervez Musharraf period,” he said. The second period was during 2006 and 2008 and then again from 2008 to 2009. “They killed with impunity.”

    “Only a few of us who spearheaded Operation Clean-up are now alive but under the threat of elimination,” he said, adding that if they too were killed, no one in the entire force would ever even think of cleansing Karachi of terrorists.

    He said that while the SC had referred to the Ajmal Pahari case, a prominent and fresh case of “Ishtiaq Police Wallah” had escaped its attention. He is the man behind the killing of Brigade SHO Nasirul Hasan and DSP Nawaz Ranjha. He was identified by witnesses in court and charge sheeted. The case is identical to that of Saulat Mirza (who was sentenced to killing former KESC MD Shahid Hamid). “He is a top terrorist who killed or was involved in killing many police officers,” said this former police officer. “Zulfiqar Mirza named him many times but no one noticed.” He concluded: the SC has a list of all terrorists belonging to all political parties, religious groups and a simple order for their arrests “would have done wonders”.

    If the authorities wish, the Karachi Police, Sindh Rangers or FC; the murderers could be arrested. There is sufficient proof present out there which leads to them, however, for whatever reason, fear or lack of willingness, they are not executing the plans.

    The Pakistani courts issue bails to TTP commanders, what else do you expect to happen?

    it should first be investigated who ordered the army operation and the police operation and that it wasnt the political move..

    it has already come to the media that army operation was based on false grounds and false motives and it was unjustified

    if found that the operation had political support then the criminals behind the operation should be prosecuted

    all the people responsible for bloodshed in karachi should be brought to justice

    This is due to limp in the legislature which puts no value to oral evidences and prefers visible/documentary evidences. Since such evidences are hard to find in case of TTP cases,courts have to let them go. More recently government has introduced an amendment to legislature providing authenticity to oral evidences (an event which went almost un noticed).

    You still have doubts that MQM is not a terrorist organisation? It has killed 254 officers involved in the just and much needed and very successful operation. Its the criminals who relnet and allow such a terror outfit to reorganize that should be blamed.

    After Benazir operation, Nawaz Sharif gave MQM compensation for all terrorist killed in the police operation. MQM was back in government.

    No civilian should be allowed to be armed and there be no private militias. The arguments after that are all frivolous. If there are armed outfits, there will never be peace. The reason such outfits exists is that government of time compromise for short term political interests.

    you should have thought this before MQM came into being, you should have thought about military operation which made this militant malatias and the gun culture which was spreading before MQM

    MQM isnt responsible for arms which are smuggled from peshawar to karachi

    But MQM is responsible for using those weapons. If MQM is not responsible for those weapons, why is it using them?

    MQM is responsible for the thousands killed in Karachi because it has been in government forever. If you being in government cant control it, who will?

    Dont blame others for the misdeeds you do. You are a violent outfit. Another police operation against you is a must. You cant say you are innocent. You have been a big part in today's Karachi problems. Putting on a picture of Mustafa Kamal as avatar will not help. You owe the city much more than you have given. An avatar of Kalashnikov will suit you much better.

    Blaming others is a typical MQM trait. It has no reason to complain now. It has all power but it keeps forgetting that it needs to shoulder responsibility too. Responsible is someone else but enjoying government is our right!!!

    No matter how much you cry your innocence and shift responsibility, MQM is a terror outfit. It has killed police officers on state duty. It has killed rangers on state duty and lifting weapons against state is a crime punishable by death.

    When you have terrorist organisations working as political parties at National arena. You'll have to deal with the consequences.

    I expect nothing from this impotent Judiciary. The justice was when all the terrorist organisations were identified and proved to be involved in violence in last year's Supreme Court inquiry, they should have been at least banned as political parties. But no, our honourable Supreme Court is so worried about democracy that it warned the Government and then, NOTHING.

    Who gives a sh*t if innocent people are being killed everyday? At least Supreme Court doesn't.

    the thing with you debating is, one must keep in mind the ignorant nature of you, first of all i asked you some questions which you totally ignored side lined and put all the blame on MQM..

    i asked you who is responsible for gun culture in Karachi?, was it MQM that spread guns in the city, and who protects the weapons coming from peshawar.. who keeps the big stash of weapons in alasif square? who spreads the mafia culture in liyari

    i say again, you can do thousands of military operation in karachi but it will never eliminate MQM and neither the gun culture, you can only make karachi another somalia for sure in this way

    the way to tackle the problems of karachi you have to stop blaming the boogeyman and be real about it and except the bitter reality

    as for the crimes goes, there is no need to sympathise the police who is the most corrupt organisation in the city and 99% of all crimes are done under their very noses

    MQM did try to reform the police, remember the gry suited private police of mustafa kamal, yes he was one thin line behind over hauling the police system in karachi but bigger players kicked him out before he achieved that

    mustafa kamal has done more for karachi than anybody did for 65 years of country's history, learn to appreciate it..
