Karachi issues: Jamat-e-Islami to hold protests across city
KARACHI: Jamat-e-Islami is going to organise protests at 50 different locations in Karachi on Saturday.
JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman will lead the protest. “We will expose those who wiped out half of Karachi’s population (in national records),” the JI leader wrote on Twitter.
For last few years, Naeem-ur-Rehman has been more vocal on issues and problems faced by Pakistan’s biggest metropolitan city. ” Both central and provincial governments have done nothing for the city,” Naeem said.
JI has named the protest as “Huqooq-e-Karachi Tehreek” or Karachi Rights Movement. JI is taking to roads and streets on January 30 (today), demanding fair census, local bodies election, more power for the city government, and abolishment of quota system.
