According to details, the Jamaat-e-Islami held a Karachi Rights March for the rights of the metropolis. A large number of people attended the ‘Karachi Huqooq Caravan’.

Addressing the participants at Hyderi Market, Hafiz Naeemur Rehman asserted that no government will be allowed to deprive Karachi of its rights and demanded a fresh census in the metropolis.

The JI’s Karachi Emir pointed out that general and provincial elections were not acceptable without census. “If Karachi gets a fresh and fair census, then Chief Minister will be elected from the metropolis,” Hafiz Naeem claimed.
