The 180 degree change was not a bolt from the blue but a gradual process where crime grew while law enforcement always stood stand by. Karachi city is divided into different unseen parts based upon racism and lingual basis. Muhajers (emigrated from India in 1947) cannot step in Phattan areas and vise versa.

The biggest stack holders and beneficiaries of Karachi city are the following political parties. The political parties enjoy crown ship in their respective areas empowered by their street power and armed wings.

- Lyari Group
MQM is the pioneer to introduce armed wings in politics. The dirty politics of MQM involves but is not limited to street crimes supervision, terrorism, inhuman activities, mass murdering, target killings and illegal land acquisition (mafia). MQM headed by chair person Iltaf Hussain can literary block the whole city on one single call (the violators mostly are unable to see the next morning light or are financially buried into the ground). MQM is capable to gain more than 82 votes per minute from a single both. MQM enjoys organizational hierarchy of think tanks, Public speakers and armed wings while all of the said plays their individual roles to support their cause (mostly illegal). Interesting fact is, MQM is always enjoys their seats in enrolling party (government).
Recently MQM was accused of mass murdering and flaming up 259 lives in a single factory where the owner refused to pay extortion money. The inhuman act was evidenced and reported in JIT report but still current government has many strings attached with the abused.
The silent crime partner of MQM can be probably called biggest land mafia in Karachi and Sindh. PPP is not that much into street crimes but loves to be a part of biggest financial (corruptions) benefits only. PPL always supports MQM for the mutual benefits in Karachi and thus can be called the root cause of all crime scenes in Karachi.

Mugging and robbing are their favorite hobbies while robs banks as kids use to play in grounds. On red signal (attached to their area) armed youngsters use to rob the whole lot of passengers passing by. This can be occurred in day light in presence of thousands on road.

Pakistan 70% of revenues is generated from Karachi City and most of the industries are situated in it (because of harbor). The law enforcement agencies needs to clear the city without any discrimination and have to make their image of the crime controllers instead of crime supporters while government have to give them open hand to address the crime.
