There is a great deal of hype and anxiety regarding the burial of Dr Imran Farooq of MQM. It appears as if the entire city of Karachi is in a state of commotion and fear. Karachi has been put under a virtual curfew. Roads have been blocked and markets shut. Thousands of Ranger troops along with police officials are manning the route of the Janaza. I hope somebody will tell us how much money the poor taxpayers (who cannot eat even one square meal in a day) will be paying for this show?" - DR ZAHEER ASGHAR KHAN, Lahore, November 6.
