KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement, Mohajir Qaumi Movement-Haqiqi and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) assured the Sindh Rangers chief on Saturday that they would play a “positive role for peace in Karachi”.
The meetings took place against the backdrop of recent incidents of violence in Karachi and Hyderabad for which all the three parties blamed one another.
A Rangers spokesman said Maj Gen Bilal Akbar invited the delegations of the three parties to the headquarters of the paramilitary force where he met them separately.
“It was reiterated in the meetings that peace in Karachi is a result of sacrifices of the people and law enforcement agencies and it is our collective responsibility to maintain it and, therefore, an atmosphere of tolerance and harmony should be promoted,” the spokesman said.
He said that leaders of the three parties assured the Rangers chief of their positive contribution to maintaining peace in the city.
