Sirajul Haq said that this is the right time to take action against criminals and terrorist groups in Karachi who have killed innocent people and put their rivals in containers of sulphuric acid to torture them.

He said that if action was not taken against them, then the federal government and bureaucracy will be equally responsible.

He mentioned that MQM workers are openly confessing that they have killed innocent people on the directives of their party chief, adding now there is no excuse for MQM and it is the responsibility of the Prime Minister to restore peace in Karachi and bring the responsible elements to justice.
