In this episode of the Truth Serum: After the popular rally of support in Lahore will Imran Khan defy the odds again and hold a similar rally in Karachi, the largest city of Pakistan?
There a buzz of change in the air with regards to Pakistani politics especially amongst the disenfranchised youth of Pakistan. This is especially true after the stellar showing of support for Imran Khan at the Lahore rally. A true acid test of his popularity would come in the form of holding a similar rally in the biggest and the most economically influential city of Karachi. MQM has an almost Mafioso type grip on the city. Past incidents point to the city erupting in violence if MQM demands are not met. Why is Karachi so important? For multiple reasons.
First if he succeeds here as he did in Lahore it will be a true indicator to the people of Pakistan and the outside world that he is a genuine contender with a broad base of support and that a sea change is coming to Pakistan in election of 2013.
Secondly his visit will be a true test for law enforcement authorities, the paramilitary forces and the army to show that this major metropolis is actually in their control as opposed to that of political organizations and their armed wings doing as they please.
Lastly it will also be a test for the people of this city to show without fear or intimidation that they can congregate, support and eventually vote according to their free will without being coerced.
