While Karachi burns, MQM leadership enjoys Dubai getaway

The self-proclaimed saviours of Karachi fled to Dubai yesterday leaving the hapless citizens of the city to fend for themselves as the city came to a standstill in face of violence and arson.

MQM’s top leadership was in Dubai last night as Karachi came to a standstill after killings earlier in the day. The city became a target of fierce aggression as tyres and vehicles were set on fire, people were killed in firing incidents and roads were blocked on the day when MQM announced to mourn the death of two of its workers. At least 10 people lost their lives, two dozen were injured and around 46 vehicles set alight in the violence.

Sindh Governor Dr Ishrat-ul-Ibad Khan, MQM’s Deputy Convener and parliamentary leader Dr Farooq Sattar, former mayor of Karachi Mustafa Kamal, and Federal Minister Babar Ghori were spotted late last night in the executive lounge of Dubai’s Avari Hotel and were seen in relaxed mood engaging in banter.

This is further proof of the disconnect that exists between the political elite of Pakistan and its citizens who often feel that they are left to fend for themselves in the face of terrorism, corruption and the inability of the state to run its affairs.

MQM has been engaged in bitter turf wars with rival political parties, land mafia and extortion gangs over the last few months resulting in many deaths and loss to property.
