Karachi was once a peaceful and progressing city but now it bleeds. Peace in Karachi cannot be deemed impossible. Of course, transforming the security and judicial institutions will be a tedious process. Combating organised crime is without doubt, a trans-generational task but our city needs the rule of law. This requires reconditioning institutions and confronting criminals. Our leaders must take measures such as disarmament in every town and city. They should begin with Karachi. Other measures should include registration of all non-registered vehicles, dismantling of criminal gangs, institutional reforms in the judicial system, regulation of the police force, rangers etc.
