Jamaat-i-Islami activists demonstrate over increasing street crime in Karachi

The Jamaat-i-Islami activists recently protested in Pakistan's Karachi city over increasing incidents of street crime and the failure of police in curbing the menace.

Scores of party workers gathered outside the offices of SSPs of Karachi’s seven districts to demand local policing and accountability of “black sheep” within the force, reported Dawn News.

During the demonstration,  the protesters carried party flags and placards and chanted slogan against the lawlessness in the city and poor performance of the law enforcement agency.

Senior JI leaders Muslim Pervez, Dr Fuad Ahmed and others held the 15-year-long rule of the Pakistan Peoples Party in Sindh responsible for the worsening security situation in the metropolis and other parts of the province, reported Dawn News.

They said that the Karachi police was comprised of over 37,000 policemen but unfortunately majority of them were deputed for VIP security and protocol duties.

They said that 62 Karachiites had been killed in the last three months and more than 21,000 street crimes reported in the city during the same period.

They said that no one was safe in Karachi as these crime statistics were enough to tell what’s happening in the metropolis.
