By now it should be perfectly clear to everyone that a strike call is followed by burning of vehicles and killings of innocent people on the evening before the day of the strike. So, even a moron would immediately take steps to protect lives and property as soon as a strike call is given.

Unfortunately this is never done in Karachi because the people running the Sindh government have only one aim: enriching themselves. And while we are on the subject, shouldn’t those who give strike calls be tried in anti-terrorism courts?
