KARACHI: Ulema Action Committee Karachi on Wednesday demanded of the government to constitute a special committee for investigating killing of Mufti Usman Yar Khan and arrest the killers.

Addressing a press conference at Karachi Press Club, Qari Abdul Manan Anwar, Qari Muhammad Usman, Dr Muhammad Fayaz, Maulana Muhammad Hanif Hazarvi, Hafiz Ahmad Ali and Maulana Saifullah said that target killing of religious leaders and students of seminaries had become an order of the day in Karachi, but provincial government was not serious to end it, and that was why they had announced to observe a complete strike in Karachi on 24 January 2014.

They said that representatives of Ulema Action Committee Karachi had held meetings with different political parties and transporter associations who had assured them of full support for making the strike a success.

They said: “If killers of Mufti Usman Yar Khan and others are not arrested, scope of the protest will be extended and sit-ins staged outside Governor and Chief Minister Houses.
