Army troops have been deployed in Pakistan`s commercial capital Karachi following a bomb blast at a religious congregation to celebrate the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) at Nishter Park on Tuesday last, in which at least 57 people, including six prominent religious leaders were killed.

Violence flared up in various parts of the city following the blast, as thousands of people attended the funerals for the top three leaders of Sunni Tehrik, which has been blaming its rival Muttehida Qaumi Movement (MQM) for targeting its leaders and activists in Karachi.

Sunni Tehrik, and other religious parties have blamed the provincial government for the blast, and demanded its resignation.

The police are insisting that it was a suicide attack, however, the intelligence agencies doubt the claim. According to intelligence officials, the bomb used in the attack was 10 to 15 kg, and it was unbelievable that a person carries such a huge bomb and reached near the stage without being noticed by anyone.

They think that the government and the police are terming it as a suicide attack just to hide the security lapses and their negligence.

Religious and political circles believe the attack is aimed at fanning confrontation between different sects, and those forces are involved in this heinous act, which are doing the same in Iraq. They say the government is dubbing incident as a suicide attack to tarnish the image of Mujahdin, who have been using this tactic against American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Here are some questions

1) Keeping the circumstantial evidences and statements of intelligence officials, do you think, it was a suicide attack?
2) If yes, who could be behind that?
3) If no, then who could be involved and what could be their motive?
4) Do you think the government should step down after its failure to maintain law and order?
5) Intelligence agencies see foreign hand in the blast. What do you think?

Who to blame?

I wish the entire world could see that the time for "blame" has past.

Isn't it time we all just united against these suicide/homicide killers?

Is it going to do any good at all to stand around and decide who is to blame?

BTW, isn't it obvious who is to blame? The killers are to blame. Or am I just being too simplistic?

If they can stand together and kill, why can't the rest of us at least stand together to show our disapproval.

Problem is,there are too many of us who will say - I hate what they do, but I can understand why they do it...

Shame on them if they keep on with their cowardly murders,

Shame on us if we allow them to continue...

Islam has to be purified

These sectarian attacks reflect the will of Allah. We are not pure in our hearts and so we are being punished. Our pure land is being made impure. We need to understand this.

Osama Bin Ladin doesn't exist. Never did. This whole thing about extremism in the region is made-up in order to contain AND appease China (mineral rights). No one has yet addressed the real cause of all this mischief is government corruption and Hawala. Will there be any change? No. There's too much poverty and too many nefarious characters who are making a killing in profit- ask Ibrahim Dawood, he'll explain everything.

Who are they?

The people who take the innocent lives of people are Muslims. There has been no evidence that any none Muslim has been identified in this blodbath in the name of Islam. I am surprised to hear and to read that the terrorists are not Muslims. If so that who are they. Let Qazi Hussain Ahmad let me know the religious identity of terrorists operating in Pakistan killing innocent men women and children.

JI – Cain in culpable terrorism

JI – Cain in culpable terrorism

If in-depth analyses are carried out it will be dawn upon every one that JI has been holding the rank of Cain (Qabil- Prophet Adam pbuh’s son) in culpable terrorism in the country, region and the world at large, which the later have won in culpable homicide in human history.
The third dictator, Zia-ul-Haque proved himself the most third-rate among the lot and of course he was the worst among the rest. His legacy will haunt the nation, region and world at large. He was so duffer that on loosing the most strategic region of Siachen to Hindus in the so called heyday of Pak-US ties he was fooling the nation by downplaying the importance of Siachen. So whenever he was asked for comment, his reply was always by snuffling; “Siachen is a place where not a single twig of grass grows over there”. Although it was revealed subsequently that apart from strategic importance of Siachen the world rarest rose plants grow only over there!!!
One of the nastiest tragedies that occurred during Gen Zia-ul-Haque’s 11 years long dark night was arming of JI’s progeny as well as the his own progeny; MQM from top to toe along with granting the training facilities throughout the whole country.
What the nation is reaping now was sown by the third dictator, Zia-ul-Haque with the help of JI’s progeny which was brought up by the fourth dictator Gen Mush with the help of JI’s progeny during their five years Talibanization in the NWFP. What I say has been my naked eye observation but still for public knowledge I would like to refer only one aspect: You won’t see ever that JI’s top brass would condemn Taliban, Talibanization or their inhuman atrocities, ever!!! If Cain was the pioneer in culpable homicide then JI deserves to be awarded the title of Cain in culpable terrorism.

Aftab Alam, Pakistan - 07 December, 2009


Although after successful operation in Abbotabad US president Barak Obama claims that now world has become more safer place than before but thirteen attacks in just twenty days in Pakistan and Afghanistan at high value security areas clearly show that despite claim of success things are going bad worst in both countries and dream of peace is still far from imagination. Even Hospitals, Police recruiting centers and Army installations are not safe from attacks in broad day light. Pakistan is facing worst situation and has caught between US do more policy and militants terrorist attacks. After Abbotabad operation security analysts in Pakistan already warned new wave of terrorists and suicide attacks. Only week ago eighty security personnels lost their lives in outside their base. Now recent attack in Pakistan political and cultural hub Karachi is enough to open eyes of concern authorities in Pakistan. Although extremist are operating in Tribal areas thousands of miles away from Karachi but they have capability to strike even most secure places like Naval base Meharn which is situated near heart of city. Siege of Naval Base Mehran continued several hours, several precious lives and two surveillance planes also lost in terrorist attack. Interior minister believe that this type of high profile attacks are not possible without help of foreign elements unfortunately government is still not able to find out financers of these elements and who is providing them money and sophisticated weapons to carry out their agenda and organize such type of attacks against Pakistan forces. Unfortunately despite Pakistan sacrifice and lost of precious lives country is still facing worst criticism from western median and US administration.
