MQM planning ethnic riots in Karachi

With elections around the corner and its popularity going south, MQM is planning another bloody drama to gain some leverage for the next polls.

Recently banners sprang up around Karachi asking the people that whether they want Quaid-e-Azam’s Pakistan or Taliban’s Pakistan. The banners were signed by “Citizens of “. Later MQM chief Altaf Hussain announced a referendum on this.

Suddenly, Tehrik Taliban Pakistan (TTP) announced that it wants to save Karachites from Pakistan. MQM started to wail and cry over that.

Apparently, this is a well drafted plan by MQM and its puppet masters to help the fascist party gain some traction before the upcoming polls. Here is how it goes:

1. Taliban (the TTP) threatens MQM.
2. Ethnic riots starts in Karachi with MQM against a possible collation of Taliban (Pashtuns), Lyari Aman Committee (Balochs) and Sindhi Nationalists – with some help from ANP and MQM Haqeeqi.
3. Some leader of MQM will die (possibly from tier 2-3), TTP will take the credit.
4. MQM will play the Muhajir card to gain public support for next polls.

This is one possible scenario, not necessarily bound to happen. Things may turn ugly and Army may intervene or Karachi may go under Governor Rule. However, the situation will remain hostile and uncertain until the Urdu speaking community is allowed to be hijacked by a terrorist organization run by a British national.

    You are right, but the question is where are other political forces? Do we have someone to overpower them in the interest of a peaceful Karachi?

    when it comes to karachi, MQM is a favourite scapegoat. I admit that they do often cause mayhem in the city, but they are not the only group operating in the city. Before libeling anyone, you should check out your sources and research the story.
