Karachi, October 04, 2013 (PPI-OT): Chairman Businessmen Group and Former President of Karachi Chamber Siraj Kassam Teli after meeting with Additional IG and City Chief of Police Mr. Shahid Hayat at SITE Association with regards to ongoing targeted operation in Karachi against the criminals, once again appeals to the Federal Minister of Interior Chaudhry Nisar to implement the order and commitment of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif with regards to the blockade of pre-paid sims as over 70% of the crimes take place through these mobile phones having pre-paid sims.
The only method which will bring results is to make sure that all the mobile companies completely shut off these pre-paid sims across the country and immediately reissue them to the postal addresses as per the CNICs through courier service which will automatically get rid of all such sims which have been issued to the people other than the ones whose CNIC has been used and this procedure will hardly take 3-4 days in this era of Information Technology.
Once again note any other way of doing this will not bring the desired results. Siraj Teli cautioned with regards to the operation that although it is at a very early stage and it will take time for the results but both the Provincial and the Federal Governments must make sure that it continuous for as long as required and the Rangers and Police are provided all the support needed and if this operation for any reason is derailed or stopped then Karachi will get worse than ever before and then there will not be any chance of controlling these crimes any more.
Siraj Teli stated that the people of Karachi after watching the statement of Sharjeel Memon, Provincial Minister for Information on media with regards to temporarily shutting off for three months Skype, Tango, Whats up and Viber and counter statements of Chaudhry Nisar, Federal Minister of Interior has erupted a debate in Newspapers and Social Media whether it is the right thing to do or not.
Siraj Teli said that before deciding and giving such statements the Provincial and Federal Governments must take action on prepaid sims which is overdue for years and see the results, meanwhile proper research and study through technical and concerned people be held with regards to closure of these Applications and then take action if needed keeping the law and order situation and lives of the citizens of Karachi on priority number one.
