    equated with all muhajirs. MQM kills, so do Sindhi waderas, so do
    punjabis',pathans and everyone else. your magic mushroom induced
    conspiracy theories are too far fetched.
 Your point is baseless. Security on trains is not against waderas coming
 and killing people. I have yet to hear of an incident of a wadera going
 and attacking people on a train. Waderas are rich landlords, if you
 didn't know. The passengers on trains are often predominantly Sindhi,
 and there have been incidents where MQM terrorists have gotten inside
 at some station, separated people on ethnic lines and killed Sindhis. 
 I specifically remember instances of stopping buses in Karachi, picking
 out Sindhis and shooting them.. once killing more than 100 fishermen.
 The only other threat is robbers who are guilty of random violence. 
 But that doesn't mean all killings are random.. Are you really suggesting
 that Mohajirs killing Sindhis is random violence??

    ++ innocent EVERYONE gets killed. by MQM, by police, by army. a child

    passerby murdered by the cops.
 You probably haven't seen the figures on how many of the innocent
 people killed in Karachi and Hyderabad were ethnic Sindhis, killed by
 MQM as revenge against the army crackdown. News was all over in all
 Sindhi papers, but never considered by Urdu/English press. Even the
 Human Rights group in Pakistan is filled with MQM supporters. There
 was a big meeting in Islamabad and luckily there were some Sindhi
 journalists etc. there. Although reluctantly, the group had to include
 the term terrorists for MQM in their final draft, after seeing that
 all foreign correspondents were starting to understand the picture.

    ++ this is pure fantasy on your part. suggest you throw away that
 All evidence seems to be supporting my ``pure fantasy.'' What support
 do you have besides ``MQM News'' and the Karachi media too scared to
 write anything that might make MQM unhappy?
 MQM is not killing lower/middle class Sindhis living in the cities? or
 are all Sindhis living in Karachi waderas?
    >Now the question is, why do you bring up the wadera as an excuse for

    ++ there is no excuse for killing anyone. I believe it was YOU who
    used MQM's behaviour to suggest turning karachi into a prison.
 Sounds like a great idea :) but you have to show me my posting.... I
 don't remember having suggested this... Besides, things have cooled
 down in Karachi now that MQM's back is almost broken...
