    The explosive laden bike targeted a bus that was carrying passengers to an MQM rally.
    That is from where the majority of damage occured.
    Tribune reports that "Around three buses were severely affected by the blast, while the windows of at least 6-7 buses shattered."

    Too many blast goes on there.

    Regardless of the fact that some of the pakistanies seem to enjoy when an indian dies,we must remember that civilian casualties must never be justified,whatever the reason.
    We cannot stoop to their level and ridicule the dead and innocent,it was never part of our upbringing
    RIP to the dead.

    I thought TTP were done with infighting in Pakistan.
    But you never know, there are so many TTPs spawning these days in Pakistan. Lot of militia in intense battle for control over Karachi.
    The city is in a civil war of sorts.

    Karachi is a nightmare of a city,the bad part being that it is the economic nerve centre of a country with its financial condition in ICU.
    One hand you have the political rivalry which has turned extremely bloody,on another hand you have the mafia/gangs taking advantage of the breakdown in law and order and then finally there is the friendly neighbourhood taliban who are taking evry chance they get to weaken the will of the state.....wow thats serious.

    One must remember that the majority of violence in karachi is not due to talibanies but due to inter-political rivalry and gangs/underworld.
    As such if adequate forces with proper motivation is not available for a sustained period of time, similar situations might develop in one of our tier2 cities...
    Just a point to be kept in mind IMHO

    Maybe they are consolidating their positions for 2015 when the money runs dry due to NATO withdrawal. Karachi stands to lose billions.

    Might be possible. But I doubt the foresightedness of the pakistanis...sad but true
    With Gwadar on hold due to Chinese apprehensions,Karachi is the only true port city they have.It being a secure a thriving city is essential for the financial security the state.
    Which is why the actions of pak baffle me(hey i am not complaining). Its as if the army is not interested in a safe karachi.shady thoughts behind the mess in karachi maybe?
