This is not the only place where Army's brutalities
are making poor people suffer. In Karachi, the largest
city of Pakistan recently work has started on a
Expressway known as Lyari Expressway by uprooting
25,000 families. These people are among the poorest in
the city and Federal Government (ruled by Army
General) has offered Rs 50,000 ($1,000).
