straikeA strike was observed in Karachi after the call was made by leading Shiite Organization Majlis-i-Wahdat-i-Muslimeen (MWM) to assert its demand for a military operation against terrorists and Shia genocide in Karachi.

The MWM leaders demanded the law enforcement agencies operation against the militants of Takfiri outfits in Karachi

saying that karachi turned into the safe-haven of Taliban terrorists.

They said that the Sindh government had failed to protect Shia Muslims of Karachi from terrorists of Takfiri outfits adding that more than 13 Shia notables were shot martyred by terrorists in last 25 days but not a single terrorists apprehended by the LEA's.

The city bore a deserted look as vehicular traffic remained sparse on the roads. The Karachi Transport Ittehad had decided to keep public transport off the roads in support of the strike but later announced that public transport vehicles would return to the roads after Friday prayers.

Fearing security issues, all private schools in Karachi remain closed on Friday as a precaution, but the Sindh Education Department decided not to declare it an official holiday.

Shortly after the Private Schools Management Association, All Private Schools Management Association and Peak Private Schools Management announced the closure, the Sindh education department issued a statement that though the department condemned the unfortunate incident in Balochistan and the unrest that followed, it hoped that children’s education would not be disturbed by it. “Therefore all government schools will remain open on Friday,” said a spokesman for the education department.

The Karachi University also announced postponement of all examinations scheduled for the day. A new date would be announced later.
