Violence and the Media

 By Dr A Q Khan

Every day 15 to 20 innocent people are murdered in Karachi, including some eminent religious scholars. Miscreants even managed to kill with impunity several people attending a public meeting arranged for Nafisa Shah, daughter of Sindh chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah. Another lady, a PPP MP, was ambushed, but luckily she survived.

I belong to Karachi. We migrated from Bhopal and were received with open arms by the local people. I never faced any discrimination of any kind and I still remember those wonderful days. I obtained my BSc degree from DJ Sindh Government Science College and worked in Karachi for three years before proceeding to Berlin for higher education. When the country faced mortal danger I offered my services to Mr Bhutto, who requested me to return to Pakistan and start our nuclear programme. It is thanks to Mr Bhutto and my KRL team that Pakistan is safe today from external threats.
