Another youth gunned down due to incapability of govt: Naeem



Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi Ameer Engr Hafiz Naeemur Rehman has said that another innocent youth gunned down in Karachi during resistance against street criminals due to the incapability and corrupt policies of the Pakistan People Party government in Sindh.

The JI leader expressed these views while talking to the media here on Saturday after participating in the funeral prayers of the slain youth, Jahangir Sohail, who was killed at North Karachi last night.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that the Sindh government, police department and other law enforcement agencies in the city have totally failed against the armed street criminals in discharging their prime responsibility — the security of life and possession of citizens.

He held the incapability, insensitivity and corrupt policies of the Sindh government responsible for the rule of criminals in the city. How long the Karachiites will have to offer funeral prayers, he asked Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.

The JI leader said that unfortunately other political parties in the arena are also busy in maximizing their political gains and interests and none of them bothered themselves to play their due role for Karachhiites.

On the occasion, he lambasted the Karachi police chief for the failure of the police department against criminals in Karachi. The top cop in Karachi will have to answer why does he directs citizens not to offer resistance against criminals instead of taking firm action the criminals and purging the police department of black sheep.

He said that Murtaza Wahab has already confessed that the Sindh government’s failure in handling the situation in Karachi. He further said that the state, the government, and the law enforcement agencies in the city are responsible to provide security to the citizens. However, he maintained, all of them failed the citizens.

The JI leader also questioned the Sindh Rangers about the capacity of their deployment in the mega city. What Karachiites should do against sky rocketing street crimes, he asked.

Engr Naeemur Rehman further said that the JI is going to hold a historical convention at Bag-e-Jinnah in Karachi on January 8 to announce the future course of action. He made it clear that the situation has become unacceptable and something needs to be done.
