ISLAMABAD- Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Thursday proposed to the Upper House of the Parliament for the formation of a high-powered fact-finding Parliamentary Committee with representation of each Parliamentary party in the House to probe the reasons and causes of incidents of violence and killings in Karachi. The Minister made this proposal while concluding the debate on the law and order situation in the country with special reference to Karachi on the first day of the late night session of the House. Prior to this, from the very start of the fresh session, the Treasury and the Opposition benches entangled over the procedural matters pertaining to the setting of the agenda of the House. The Opposition parties in the Senate including Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) staged a token walkout from the House against the discriminatory attitude of the government what they said that government had enforced its own agenda in the session requisitioned by the Opposition. Later, Raja Zafarul Haq moved a motion in the House to start the debate on the law and order situation in the country. Though, he wanted that the others issues including rigging in AJK elections and non-implementation of superior judiciary orders by the Executive should be clubbed in the motion but was not allowed by the chair on the objection of Leader of the House Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari. A meeting of the Opposition and the government benches that will be held on Friday(today) before the start of the House proceedings at 10am would decide that whether both these matters could be discussed in the House or not. Interior Minister in his concluding remarks after around 10 Senators from the Opposition made their speeches said that he would like to give an in camera briefing to the proposed Parliamentary Committee on the Karachi violence. 'The two members of each political party from the House should represent the committee while the members of Law-Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) could also be inducted into it, he recommended. 'I will provide every evidence to the committee, he said ,adding, that the committee should have clear terms of reference. The Minister said that he would like to present 154 killers before the proposed committee that were apprehended by LEAs in Karachi on charges of killings and every killer has the score of killing the people not less than 10. 'Among these, 90 alleged killers are those whom each had murdered more than 50 people, he disclosed. He also added that some of them claimed the workers of some political parties but they would have to probe whether their claim was true or not. He also made it clear that the government was not freeing the killers on the dictation of any political party. Rehman Malik admitted that there were some lacunas in the existing laws that permit these alleged killers to have their acquittals by the courts. 'There is need to amend the law and we have brought some change in the new proposed Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), he further said. The Minister at the same time stated in the House that maintaining law and order was the prime responsibility of the provinces especially after the passage of the 18th Amendment. 'Our (Federal government) responsibility is to give the provinces logistic support, to provide them addition paramilitary troops and to have intelligence sharing with them, he said. The Minister said that the incidents of kidnappings had decreased in Karachi. He while comparing the figures of kidnapping incidents with Sindh with other provinces of the country also tried to gave an impression that Punjab topped the list in these incidents with the figure of 5983 in the on-going year. He also appealed to the House saying dont blame the countrys intelligence agencies like ISI, MI and IB as they had saved the country. He urged the need to end power game in Karachi saying that the culprits wanted to achieve their motive in this power game. He also dispelled the impression that all the killings in Karachi were target killing saying that there were some incidents of personal rivalries. While giving the details of killings in Karachi on political basis, he informed that 43 workers were killed of MQM (Altaf Group), 16 of PPP, 15 of ANP, 6 of Sunni Tehrik with the total number of 92. He also made it clear that 287 persons were killed during recent killings and the figure of 500 as is being given was totally wrong. He also said that al-Qaeda, TTP and Lashker-e-Jhangvi were also involved in the sectarian killings of Karachi. About the use of Israeli weapons in Karachi, he said that he stood by his statement but it did not mean that any country was involved in it ,adding, that Pakistan had a porous border that was a cause of infiltration of terrorists into the country. 'About 33 organisations were either banned by the government or under its watch list, he added. About Kati Pahari recent killings, he said that the first day, the police was deployed but it could not penetrate in the area. The second day, Rangers was deployed that succeeded in stopping the warring groups and the killings the same day. Senator Tahir Hussain Mashhadi has questioned Interior Minister why the government permitted the miscreants to kill the innocent people in four days and when the government intended to stop the killings, it did in minutes on the 5th day. Interior Minister categorically denied the claim of Mashhahdi that the incident was of two days and not of four days. About the arrest of PML-N MNA Anjum Aqeel Khan, Rehman said that his arrest was not a result of political victimisation at all, however, senior leader of PML-N, Raja Zafarul Haq was not ready to accept the claim of the Minister. Later, the lawmakers commenting on the speech of Interior Minister said that it had failed to answer the queries of the Senators. Tahir Mashhahdi said that the Minister was a master of rhetoric and he would request the Opposition to re-requisition the session of the House if their queries were not answered properly. Ishaq Dar said that the Minister had diagnosed the problem but did not give the road map for the solution of the problem as he earlier demanded in his speech.
