Bleeding city Karachi

Sept 15: IT was a throwback to the eighties in the Karachi University on Thursday when seven people, four of them students, lost their lives with armed assailants hurling a hand grenade on a minibus and then opening fire. And as in the eighties, the incident was harrowing and unsettling, as all mindless deaths, particularly those of the youth are. KU was the scene of moving scenes where relatives and friends gathered to mourn the loss of their loved ones. The four dead students belong to the student wing of a mainstream religious party. This group alleges that an archrival student wing of another political party is behind the attack. The animosity between both the political parties and their respective student wings is legendary in the metropolis. Do we expect reprisals in the future?

The law and order situation in the city has taken severe blows in the recent past. The gunning down of well-known advocate Raja Riaz, who had actively participated in the lawyers' movement against the dismissal of the Chief Justice, is proof of the flimsy security status of the legal fraternity there. Many allege this was an attempt to intimidate the legal community, specially since the hearing of the May 12th case, yet another sorry day in the city's history, is coming up soon. For the country's commercial capital, Karachi has a lot on its hands. There is its crippling infrastructure; no monsoons go by without a significant number of casualties, the roads are falling apart (quite literally in the case of a bridge recently). Then there are widespread ethnic and political tensions. And, to top it all off, it has a well-entrenched criminal underworld with solid connections in the city's political framework. The Nation
