Another Presence Of Political Organization In Karachi
For many years, Karachi, Pakistan‘s largest city, was governed by the Muttahida Qaumi Movement. Pakistan People‘s Party, Jamaat–e–Islami, and Pakistan Tehreek–e–Insaaf also boast strong voter bases in the city. Now, another political organization is making its presence known in Karachi.
Banners with messages criticizing the government regarding inflation and unemployment can be seen all along Shahrah Faisal, the most popular and significant street in Shahr Qaid. The name of an unfamiliar political party is written on them, a party that many of Karachi‘s citizens are not familiar with.
The banners feature the name of the organization as Pakistan Central Muslim League Karachi and slogans denouncing the rulers. However, there is no information as to who is leading this Jamaat and who is part of it.
Bannes In Karachi
Banners placed on Shahrah Faisal feature anti–government slogans regarding inflation. One banner reads, ‘Give speech not bread.’ Another state, ‘My ruler stole my earnings and ate your dearness.’
Similarly, a variety of banners were presented, proclaiming “Help the Poor, Not the Rich“, “End Poverty“, and “Rulers Need Action, Not Words“.
