We, The Citizens appeal to CJP for becoming a party to Karachi’s Law & Order Suo Moto Case

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.

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

Your Honour,

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.
