Thousands of internally displaced people who fled from their homes, two weeks ago, because of fierce skirmishes between mafias and gangs in, once proverbially peaceful and thriving Layari, have encamped in various districts such as Thatto, Badin, Hyderabad and even in Sehwan Sharif and Jamshoro in Sindh region. Reports reveal that these ill-fated people are not able to even buy food at iftar time as it is the month of Ramadan.

Regrettably, the relevant federal and provincial departments are also not doing anything except some hoax to pacify and befool these sensitive human beings. However, the local philanthropists, NGOs, civil society activist and business people are requested to help these ill-fated displaced people of Karachi and other communities during the holy month of Ramadan which is a month of sharing and charity for the vulnerable in Islam.
