Karachi Operation & MQM

I have seen many people crying for ‪‎Altaf Hussain‬ on their Facebook profiles over the past few days. Some have said that the ‪‎MQM‬ is being unfairly targeted, others saying it is just the Muhajirs that are being targeted.

Here’s my question for you – Is Altaf Hussain really the model that you want the world to see representing you? It’s the same question I ask of my Pathan brothers and sisters about Shahi Syed (ANP). These people are not our identity as Mohajirs and Pathans. They are the opposite of what we are.

And some emerging details from the ‪‎Karachi Op‬ thus far. These numbers are not from a single source or media outlet, but a compilation from multiple sources.

Arrests:
‪‎TTP‬ 672
‪‎Lyari Gang‬ 811
MQM 211
‪‎LeJ‬ 111
‪‎ASWJ‬ 81
‪‎Sunni Tehreek‬ 78
‪‎PPP‬ 28
‪‎ANP‬ 21

Results:
Extortion down 73%
4 wheel snatching down 97%
mobile snatching down 31%
target killing down 64%
‪‎Karachi‬ compared to 2013

About Khalid Muhammad - Author

When people talk about Khalid Muhammad, they talk about an entrepreneur who has helped others build their dreams and businesses. They talk about a teacher, who is dedicated to his students, both inside and outside the classroom, and they return the dedication tenfold. Now, they talk about the author, who has written a fast-paced, action-packed spy thriller about Pakistan, the politics, the Army and terrorism. Born in Pakistan’s troubled Swat Valley, educated and raised in the United States, Khalid returned to Pakistan almost 17 years ago and fell in love with his country. His debut novel, Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office, is a journey behind the headlines about Pakistan, the world’s most dangerous place, to deliver an intense story that will challenge the reader to question what they have been told.
