Pakistan army says ready to restore Karachi peace

22 August 2011 No Comment

Pakistan’s military is ready to help stem a tide of political and ethnic violence in the city of Karachi, if the civilian government asked it to do so, a newspaper on Sunday quoted country’s powerful army chief as saying.

The comments by General Ashfaq Kayani came amid growing calls by political parties and business groups for the army to step in to stop worsening security situation in the commercial hub of the country where about 900 people have been killed in violence this year, almost a third of them in July.

The News said Kayani expressed ‘grave concern’ over the security situation in Pakistan’s biggest city and said the army was ‘ready, if the government called on it, to control the situation in Karachi.’

But he also said the police and paramilitary would, if properly deployed, be able to stem the unrest.
