Karachi Murder... By Col.(r) Riaz
27 August, 2013
Maulana Akbar Saeed Farooqi spokesman of Ahl e Sunnat wal Jama't (ASWJ) died of the bullet wounds he received near Safari Park, Karachi while returning from a rally organised by ASWJ at Lasbela Chowk on Sunday evening. Maulana Aurangzeb Farooqi has said that the FIRs will be lodged against the Sindh govt. and the Karachi Police for not providing the adequate security to the late Maulana. And, if the FIRS are not registered then an agitation would be resorted to.
However, it has not been made clear as yet as to who would be exactly blamed in the FIR against the Sindh govt. – that is: the Home Minister, the Chief Minister or the Governor? Incidentally, as the President was also in Karachi on the day of murder and there is a precedence as well of a president (Musharraf) indicted for not providing security to a political leader (BB), hope president AAZ will not be named as the prime accused in the FIR!
