KARACHI- A complete shutter-down strike was observed in Karachi on Tuesday as the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) had announced a 'day of mourning across the country in protest against the killing of innocent people of Karachi by the Lyari gangsters. Meanwhile, six more persons were killed in different incidents of target killings in the city. The city witnessed a complete shutdown strike as traders, transporters and fuel station owners decided to keep their regular operations closed after the MQM announced a 'day of mourning against the ongoing wave of violence claiming nearly 100 lives in a week. All the major shopping centers, wholesale markets, schools, colleges, universities and educational institutions remained closed. However, thin attendance was witnessed in the federal, provincial and city government offices. The associations of public transporters, wholesale market associations, retail markets organisations and fuel station owners also suspended their businesses for showing solidarity with the MQMs day of mourning. They said the government had failed in providing them protection from the extortionists and criminals of the Peoples Aman Committee of Lyari. The government officers rooms were observed unoccupied as the staffers could not reach their offices while those who came for night shifts also faced great difficulties in getting back to their homes. The unavailability of public transport in the city also created problems for the daily wagers and employees of private organisations and commercial banks as they failed to reach their destinations due to the absence of public transport. The MQM activists clad in black hoisted black flags on buildings and squares as a sign of mourning inscribed with the slogans 'we condemn the killing of Mohajirs in Karachi, and 'stop terrorism of Peoples Aman committee gangsters. However, the common people were disappointed over the ongoing situation in the city and demanded of the government to deploy the Army in Karachi to take action without any discrimination against the gangsters. Mohammad Amin, a daily wager, sitting at Liaquatabad, said he had not earned a single penny for the last two days. He appealed to the chief of army staff to immediately deploy Army in the city as more than 100 people had been killed there within one week. Asim Abdullah, a shopkeeper, said the deployment of Army troops in Karachi was the only solution for restoring peace to the city saying the gangsters killed and butchered the innocent people on daily basis but the police and Rangers remained silent over the bloodshed. On the other hand, police have so far been unable to track down the torture cells where people are detained and tortured to death. On Tuesday, two unknown bullet-riddled bodies were recovered from the limits of Pak colony police station. SHO Shakeel Sherwani said the body of a 25-year-old man was recovered from Jehanabad while the second body was found from Dhobi Ghath.
