Muttahida Qumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain had earlier warned the government to impede violence in port city of Karachi within the next 48 hours.

Hussain’s warnings come amid continued targeted violence in the provincial capital, where despite the interior minister’s tall claims another eight people were murdered on Tuesday, raising the death toll from the violence to 139 in the last 10 days.

Altaf Hussain in a statement asked people of Sindh particularly Karachi to purchase at least one-month ration even if they have to sale their expensive belongings.

MQM Chief said despite his 48-hour notice, no action had been taken against miscreants involved in bloodshed; torching bikes of workers and grid stations in the presence of police and Rangers.

Altaf said they would prefer to die honorably rather to live a humiliated life. He warned people to be ready mentally and physically for this.

Karachi is Pakistan’s financial hub and has been a victim of target killing for more than a decade.

Any problem in Karachi has direct affect on the economic situation of the whole country as declining law and order situation in the city brings down trade and business activities in the Pakistan’s largest city.
