Lawlessness and Use of Arms and Ammunition in the By-Elections 25-02-2012 – Deweaponization of Pakistan is the need to overcome bloodsheds in the upcoming General Elections
On 25th February, 2012, in the process of bye-election held on 10th different constituencies countrywide, media showed countless clips regarding the lawlessness, fear and act of terrorism all around those constituencies. Jubilant supporters and workers were busy in fierce firing on many places, as if they are proud to do what is prohibited in the eyes of law and are against any social values or extents, whatsoever.
It has been noted with grave concerns that even in the era of democracy, we don’t stop claiming that we are going into the right direction, but can anybody (be honest to God) describe such brutality and lawlessness in the preceding eras even in the era of dictatorships.
Just imagine, these were only by-election, what would have happened if these were general elections.
It is hereby requested that concerned quarters like Government, Courts, Law Enforcement agencies (police, rangers, FCs) including Army, Media, Civil Society, Intellectuals and patriotic Pakistani should take immediate notice of this rotten state of minds and attitudes of those who took the law in their hands.
Recently MQM has wisely demanded that Nationwide De Weaponization should be adopted and enforced.
Not to forget that some parties (like for example anp, pml(n) and nationalists) whose workers were, recorded by Electronic Media, involving in the firing and show of arms on the events of by-election held yesterday, were demanding that an operation only in Karachi to be held to deweaponize the Karachi City.
It is again proven that the demand of MQM to deweaponize Pakistan should be considered so that the Nation will not see such lawlessness in the General Election, which are expected to be held in the last quarter of this year.
And the party leaders of ANP and other parties offered their lip-services to condemn the acts of their own workers and nothing else. Now if the law enforcement agencies try to trace the culprits, their leaders will come to save their skins.
Is this what, the democracy is all about?
Is this what the poor, deprived and underprivileged people of Pakistan looking for?
