President Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) M. Shariq Vohra has expressed deep concerns over an audio clip circulating in the social media in which an attempt has been made by a particular individual with an only intention to sabotage the reputation of business & industrial community Karachi and trigger rift between institutions and politicians.
While totally rejecting the claims, Shariq Vohra dissociated the Karachi Chamber from all the fabricated claims in the audio clip by an individual and termed it a ‘conspiracy’ against our beloved country as not a single member of the entire business & industrial community has never ever attended any such brunch on first Sundays of every month which has been falsely claimed. “It is also a matter of grave concern that some unscrupulous elements are trying to link the said audio clip with Chairman Businessmen Group (BMG) & Former President KCCI Siraj Kassam Teli and Karachi Chamber which is not factual at all as the individual can clearly be heard introducing himself as a Charted Accountant and neither his accent nor his voice resembles”, he added.
Vohra questioned that how is it possible that Karachi Chamber, being the largest Chamber of country, and all the leading industrialists of the city, who are closely associated with KCCI, remain totally unaware of such a huge gathering of around 350 big industrialists at Sunday’s brunch.
The President KCCI urged the Law Enforcing Agencies particularly the Cyber Crime Wing of Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) to initiate inquiry and take strictest action against the person responsible for spreading false and totally misleading message which is unacceptable as it gives a wrong impression about the business community of Karachi.
“Any statement being posted in social media must begin with a proper introduction of the person giving the statement while all other anonymous statements in the social media must be immediately intercepted and blocked by FIA’s Cyber Crime Wing in order to save the society from anxiety and unease”, he added.
