KARACHI: Jamaat e Islami Karachi acting Amir Birjees Ahmed has expressed grave concern over the recent spree of violence that claimed several innocent lives within a few hours. Commenting over the deteriorating law and order situation in the metropolis of Karachi on Saturday, he strongly condemned the rising lawlessness particularly the incident of firing at a masajid and said that those who disgraced the holy month of Ramadan, attacked on Masjid and killed Muslims couldn’t be called Muslims.
He was of the view that protection of lives and possessions of people is the prime responsibility of the government, however the present ruling regime has no interest with the miserable situation of city, nor they were intended to maintain peace. He demanded of the government to abandon the so-called policy of reconciliation and deal the culprits behind the bloodshed in the city with iron hands. He further demanded of the government to nab extortionists, abductors and target killers without the discrimination of political affiliation, instead of illogically imposing ban on pillion riding.
JI leader also criticized the role of law enforcement agencies particularly police for irking the life of peaceful citizens, instead of overcoming the rising rate of bloodshed, street crimes and lawlessness in the city. He said that extortionists and criminals were enjoying unlimited liberty and were indeed ruling the country despite of all the showoff of snap checking, patrolling and pickets. He further said that it was matter of great sorrow that those culprits, who were caught red handed, were later released on the pretext of lack of evidence.
Ahmed said that rising lawlessness could be controlled through taking firm action without political discrimination, but the government was not seemed serious in this regard. He also demanded of the Sindh chief minister, Director General Rangers and Inspector General Sindh Police to take solid measures for maintaining peace in the city.
Protection of lives and possessions of people is the prime responsibility of the government, however, ruling regime has no interest in this regard.
Meanwhile Birjees Ahmed also condemned ban, imposed on pillion riding and plead of the government to take pity on poor masses, who were already facing a miserable condition due to poverty, inflation, extortion and killing in the city. He termed the ban as quite illogical and raised the point that so far no positive results could be obtained from the ban. He was of the view that ban on pillion riding was not the solution of target killing or street crimes, but the political will is.Like AwamiWeb
