WE were reminded by the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan: “In May alone, as many as 250 people were murdered in Karachi.”
The constitution gives us the right of life but not our democracy.
A simple principle of political science teaches us that whatever happens in a country, whether good or bad, the government of the day is solely responsible for it.
For the sake of continuity, the bad may be distasteful for many.
I also mean that we have not been told the legal status of all Karachi killers ever since the law and order situation deteriorated many, many years ago.
The problem of Karachi is a mixed plate. It is not going to go away unless the people in authority at more than one level decide better and now. This requires reviewing of not only their policies, but also of their execution system.
Any misconceiving of the problem can’t construct a reliable solution.
