Karachi is one of the most densely populated cities of Pakistan consisting of all kinds of racial, sectarian and cultural individuals. The city is as lively as ever even at nights, and the people are active even in nightlife partying or planning out outing plans. But the more lively the city lacks the more darkness, it hides underneath these charming looks as Karachi is also considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world, ranking in the top 10 dangerous cities of the world regarding crime. Every day reported and unreported dead body count rises as law and order authorities sit helplessly because of the crimes that are at large. These acts are merely not just acts of criminal intents, but are also targeted in nature that may range from hired guns to kill someone or political clashes that may involve in some individual. One more thing that is to be considered is that these criminals that commit such crimes are backed by the political authorities that are always on the power controlling end. So, the law and enforcement agencies are totally in the hands of the such people similarly like pawns on a chess board.
Karachi is in a silent “War” at all times, and this war is something that the citizens fight in their everyday life. This war is against the criminal minds and their strategies to break and shatter the hope of the people using fear as well as dominance.
But the people of Karachi still stay united and show a sense of warm-heartedness towards people who are affected by such incidents. One thing that is really amazing about the people here is that whenever a criminal is caught while pointing a gun at someone and someone the people manage to disarm the criminal then surely all hell breaks loose on the criminal as people flush out their anger on the culprit while shielding the victim. Many cases have been reported where victims have admitted that pedestrians played a major role in saving their lives from the criminals.
Speaking of the arsenal that these target killers have obtained it would be an understatement to say that they are having local weapons. These criminals use weapons of such caliber that they can start a small scale war in the city. The picture with the weapons on display is not an exhibition, but it shows a police raid that was successful in seizing weapons from the criminals. Looking at the quantity of the weapons it looks like that these criminals play big time in the underworld and have an abundant supply of weapons are equipped.
The question arises are, handguns and machine guns would be logically acceptable that criminals would use to loot people, but what do they need the rocket launcher for? If such small time criminals can get access to such grade weapons, then what level of weapons would the mastermind criminals who control these small time criminals would have at their disposal? This horrifying idea when comes to the minds of the people they tend to fall into despair and fear. So much violence and so much crime have made the people frustrated and depressed even during the peaceful times of life. Though they haven’t lost hope in the good times to return in the future.
The only thing the law and enforcement agencies can do is in such chaotic situation is to station troops in different localities of the city to ensure that the criminals are tempted to restrain from criminal activities. The picture is showing troops stationed are during a situation where there was unrest in the city. The law enforcement authorities known as “Rangers” are responsible to shoot on sight if they see any criminal activity to ensure the safety of the citizens.
Here is a video of security guards who are on duty. And look at how the culprit approaches the guards and pulls out a pistol fire at them. Kills one guard and injures the other one and flees from the scene.
