    KARACHI: In a targeted operation in the wee hours of Wednesday, Rangers carried out a raid at Nine-Zero, the headquarters of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) in Karachi, with the party claiming that several leaders had been arrested.

    In a statement issued hours after the start of the operation, the MQM’s Raabta Committee said Rangers personnel had forcefully raided and ransacked the MQM’s head office.


    10:55am
    Scores of female MQM workers are also present in Azizabad, protesting against the raid.
    As demonstrations spread to other parts of the city and Hyderabad, Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah has contacted Rangers officials, inquiring about the raid.
    He has asked for a report on the raid from IG Sindh and DG Rangers.


    10:51am
    Condemning the raid on his sister’s house, MQM leader Altaf Hussain said Rangers will be responsible if something happens to his sister.

    The house of MQM chief’s sister Saira Begum was raided as part of the search operation conducted in Azizabad.

    The 68-year-old, who is a widow, is MQM’s chief eldest sibling. She was living in a house near Nine-Zero and was allegedly manhandled during the operation.

    Speaking to the media, MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari said weapons present inside the party headquarters are all licensed, however, Rangers spokesperson said he has not seen any official document as yet.

    The MQM leader said his party workers, supporters and leaders did not resist the Rangers operation as they believe in rule of law and will remain calm.

    “We have kept weapons at Nine-Zero due to the prevailing security situation particularly the threats from Taliban,” Sabzwari added.

    Wail Babar, a 28-year-old journalist, was shot dead in the Liaquatabad locality while driving home from office in the limits of the Super Market police station on January 13, 2011. He reported on drugs, crime, militancy and deadly turf struggles between the city’s main political parties.


    10:18am
    Rangers official Colonel Tahir, while speaking to the media, said the raid inside and around Nine-Zero was conducted on a tip-off regarding presence of criminals in the area.
    Tahir said weapons, earlier stolen from Nato containers, were seized during the raid. “Certain ammunition recovered is banned in Pakistan,” he added.

    He said target killers and other offenders were arrested during the operation.

    The colonel also said no MNA or MPA was arrested during the search, however, he said MQM leader Amir Khan was held for questioning and will be allowed to leave once the interrogation is over.

    Tahir asked transporters and traders to continue with their activities.


    10:07am
    MQM chief Altaf Hussain called for calm and condemned the raid.

    An MQM leader alleged that Rangers personnel planted the weapons inside Nine-Zero during the raid.


    9:53am
    All Private Schools Association has announced closure of schools due to the uncertain security situation in the city.

    Party workers are still present outside Nine-Zero, chanting slogans against Rangers’ raid during which at least 35 MQM members and supporters were arrested.

    9:18am
    The party said that several members had been arrested, including central leaders Amir Khan, Abdul Haseeb, Dr Saleem Danish, Arshad Hussain, Dr Ayub Sheikh, and Sindh Assembly lawmaker Rehan Zafar.

    Further, the party announced that it would observe a “day of peaceful protest” on Wednesday, while urging transporters and traders to keep their businesses and commercial activities suspended.

    As a side note, Nine-Zero used to be AH's house/home before he fled to England. If he was living in Karachi, he would have been living at nine-zero.

    Things are falling apart very quickly for MQM. The media has finally started to wake up and speak out against this terror. The end of MQM is close inshallah.

    Nothing he says in this is news to anyone who lives or had lived in Karachi for a year.

    But thats besides the point. What fascinates me is the type of guys that join MQM or PSF or JT and become good at being gundas. Its well known how you will end up. I mean the list of known londas from Karachi who ran Karachi at one point and now are dead is giagantic. From Najeeb to Bali to Naeem Sharrie to Faheem Family its like a million guys on that list.
    So why do these guys keep on linning up. I mean I see the gimmick. An 18-22 year old unit in-charge in college or uni or in your neighborhood runs that joint. And kids that age or guys that age love that power or the illusion of power. But you know you will end up dead one day from that one guy's brother that you killed. Its in-evitable. The more you kill the more you intimidate the more you rob the more enemies you make. And if you get too big you become someone the popo's go after too. So why do it ?
    Its fascinating because allot of these guys are not from poor families. They are from middle class families who have a real shot at normal middle class life.
