Pakistan’s new government is planning another military operation in the country’s largest city and commercial hub: Karachi. It is planning to purge it from a myriad of militant and criminal gangs involved in crimes of serious nature such as assassinations, extortion, kidnapping for ransom, land grabbing, drug pushing and gun running.

Though the usual hustle and bustle in the city appears like any other mega city elsewhere in the world, people from all walks of life in Karachi dread going out on the streets alone at night for fear of getting mugged or killed. Most of Karachi’s businessmen and industrialists, whether common traders or wealthy entrepreneurs, regularly and silently pay money to gangsters, yet they live under constant fear of receiving the demand-chit from some other powerful gang trying to take control of their area.
