Nothing seems to have changed, even after a ‘grand operation’ in Karachi which has been going on for months. Nothing seems to be working, be it the legal system or the security apparatus. Everyone knows about the political backing for many mafia groups. Abdul Rasheed Godil, an MQM activist says that weapons are like gold for Karachi. Supposedly, they use it for security purposes but no one thought to ask him about the large number of un-licensed weapons people hide at homes. The Lyari gangs are complaining, MQM is complaining, there is no clear indication who is the enemy, so who are we fighting and who is killing people every day? In the absence of clear laws and a strong judicial system this will continue forever with no results!
