Political Murder In London Has Karachi Streets On Edge

...With, without, and who'd deny
it's what the fighting's all about
...Pink Floyd

London Police have opened a murder investigation after an unidentified man stabbed the exiled leader of a Pakistani minority party to death on the North London street where he lived.

Imran Farooq fled his home and took up residence in England 11 years ago after spending years underground hiding from Army Rangers who sought to carry out “Operation Cleanup” in the nation's largest city and only seaport, Karachi. Many thousands lost their lives in the bloody purge, which took place with full backing of the Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, during the years 1992-96.

As a result, the city is on a high security alert following the deaths of an estimated 20 persons killed in ethnic clashes overnight.

The cleansing operation was justified as a result of two false flag events, the Jinnahpur affair and the case of Major Kaleem, both later proven to have been totally fabricated.

Mr. Farooq headed the Muttahida Quami Movement, which represents members of a minority ethnic group that fled India when Pakistan broke away from that nation following British rule in the late 40's.

Mr. Farooq was first elected to the National Assembly in 1988 after doing yeoman work in the education of the party's illiterate workers.

He had been accused of various crimes, chief among them murder, which he had steadfastly denied.

Members of the MQM are generally kept in a marginalized position in prospects for a university education of civil service position.

They stand in opposition to fedual social practices carried out by the more conservative elements of Pakistani society, particularly among its military leadership.
