KARACHI - Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik has declared that bringing peace in Karachi is the joint responsibility of the coalition partners of Sindh and hoped that all stakeholders will realise their responsibility. He said that criminal elements were trying to disturb the peace of Karachi which was also the biggest industrial city in Pakistan. He said that as Karachi was the financial juggler vein of the country, so it was imperative to maintain peace and law and order under control. He was addressing the business community at the auditorium of Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry here on Monday. He suggested implementing a South African model for controlling crimes and installing monitoring equipment on the pattern of China where those instruments had proved successful in detecting and controlling situations on the streets and other areas of importance. The Interior Minister said that the names of the activists of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Sipah-e-Muhammad came up whenever there were incidents of target killings in Karachi. He also talked about presence of militants in the city and said whenever MQM Quaid Altaf Hussain had spoken about Talibanisation in Southern Punjab and Sindh, people did not believe. However, he added, he believes what MQM Chief has said is correct. President Karachi Camber of Commerce and Industry, in his welcome address, said that due to deteriorating law and order situation and presence of extortionists in the city, the business community was threatened and feeling unsafe. He demanded of the government to take steps to rebuild confidence of the businessmen in running their businesses. Earlier, talking to newspersons after having a meeting with DG FIA, Waseem Ahmed, DG Coast Guards, Brig Shahryar Khan, and DG Rangers Sindh, Maj General Ijaz Chaudhry, Malik said that a special task force had been set up to check smuggling via sea routes. The force will look into various options and ways and means available to check human trafficking and smuggling of fuel from Iran into Pakistan, he added.
