Target Killing


There seems to be no end to the target killing in Karachi and yet another doctor – Manzur Memon has fallen victim to it today along with his driver.  The killers who were on a motorbike made good their escape as usual and probably would never be tracked down like hundreds of other such killers before them.  It is a well known phenomena that 99.9 per cent of all such target killings are done by the killers riding on a mobike. There are always two of them together, one doing the shooting and the other driving the bike. Since a motorbike is a small, handy and extremely manoeuvrable vehicle the killers weave their way through the heavy traffic and vanish in the nearby streets/bye lanes easily.  


I know it would be hard on many, but banning the pillion riding on the mobike looks to be the only answer to this menace of target killing.  As I said it will cause great inconvenience to many and quite an uproar among the commuters, but at times one has to take a bitter pill to eradicate the bigger menace.  It is the incessant killing of the important intelligentsia versus some inconvenience to the motor cyclists. Take it or leave it.
