Sindh govt submits petition in SHC for motorcycle ban
2012-11-20
[Dawn] The Sindh government on Monday moved a petition in the Sindh High Court calling for a ban on cycle of violence riding till Muharram 11, a day after an explosive-laden bike went kaboom! in Bloody Karachi
...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It may be the largest city in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous...
killing two.

On Thursday, Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik
Pak politician, Interior Minister under the Gilani government. Malik is a former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) intelligence officer who rose to head the FIA during Benazir Bhutto's second tenure. Malik was tossed from his FIA job in 1998 after documenting the breath-taking corruption of the Sharif family. By unhappy coincidence Nawaz Sharif became PM at just that moment and Malik moved to London one step ahead of the button men. He had to give up the interior ministry job because he held dual Brit citizenship.
had earlier placed a ban on bike-riding in Bloody Karachi and Quetta on Muharram 1, citing intelligence reports of cycle of violences being used in terrorist attacks.

However,
a lie repeated often enough remains a lie...
SHC Chief Justice Mushir Alam overturned the ban the same night on a petition filed by Sindh High Court Bar Association President Anwar Mansoor Khan against the day-long ban on use of cycle of violences in Bloody Karachi.

Malik's order, which would have forced over a million users of cycle of violences off the road in Bloody Karachi, had taken the bustling provincial capital by surprise. However,
if you can't say something nice about a person some juicy gossip will go well...
the interior minister defended his order, saying the extreme restriction was needed in view of security concerns.

On Sunday, a cycle of violence fitted with explosives went kaboom! near an Imambargah in Bloody Karachi's Abbas Town locality of Gulshan-e-Iqbal, killing at least two and injuring over a dozen.

The Sindh Home Department has now requested the court to review its earlier decision and has called for a ten-day long ban on riding cycle of violences until Muharram 11.
