In our ongoing effort by the Movement for Deweaponization [MFD] in Pakistan the core group of citizens leading the effort have officially applied to the Chief Justice of Pakistan for becoming a party to the Suo Moto case regarding the Law and Order situation in Karachi. Its ironic the proceedings are underway, but there is no one representing the main victims ie. The People of Karachi. I truly love the way the letter starts “WE, THE CITIZENS” its taking ownership of this issue in a definitive way, it is a message to say, that we, the people of Karachi will no longer tolerate being held hostage to the terrorizing politicians that govern us
WE, THE CITIZENS Appeal to the Chief Justice for becoming a Party to the Suo Moto case regarding the Law and Order situation in Karachi.
Violence, confrontation and polarization, especially in Karachi, have caused misery and destroyed the life, liberty and spirit of our people.
The citizens of Karachi are the most affected victims of the on-going violence and lawlessness. We believe that peace is impossible in Karachi without total compulsory confiscation of all firearms (licensed or otherwise) from gangs, political parties and all individuals.
We the undersigned citizens appeal to your honor to let us voice our views on this vital issue by becoming a party to the Suo Moto case being heard by your Honor on the Law and Order Situation in Karachi.
