Considering the deteriorating situation in Pakistan, a group of citizens Movement for De-Weaponisation have started an effort to lobby for ways to help de-weaponize Karachi and also Pakistan, it is undoubtedly a long and portracted effort, but it is our core belief that the initiative must be taken to help cleanse Karachi of its stockpiles of weapons that are used to kill its very own citizens. As a first step in the effort an appeal has been filed with the Supreme Court to lobby for de-weaponisation of Karachi to become a party to the ongoing Suo Moto Hearing on Karachi’s Violence

Honourable Chief Justice
Supreme Court of Pakistan
Sub: Appeal for complete De-weaponisation of Karachi
Violence, confrontation and polarization, especially in Karachi, have caused misery and destroyed the life, liberty and spirit of our people. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan states that over a thousand persons were killed in Karachi in the first six months of 2011. More than 600 others were killed in July and August making this the bloodiest year ever.
Armed gangs of land-grabbers and mafias have exploited the chaos. It is however generally felt that the real ownership of this horrible game of death and destruction lies with the powerful political, religious and criminal groups.
