KARACHI: Gunmen on Friday attacked two cars in Karachi, killing two and injuring as many people.

In the first incident which took place near Neepa Chowrangi two people were killed in the remits of Aziz Bhatti Police Station.

The TV channel reported that four gunmen on two motorcycles sprayed the car with bullets from both sides. The vehicle bearing number plate ATF 908 was registered in Darul Uloom Karachi's name. The dead were identified as Maulana Shahbullah Khan and security guard Sanobar Khan.

Darul Uloom is one of the largest Islamic seminaries in Karachi that is run by Mufti Rafi Usmani and his brother and renowned Islamic scholar Mufti Taqi Usmani.

The second attack took place on Shahra-e-Faisal in which two people were injured. The second car was registered in the name of Mufti Taqi Usmani.

Identities of the second attack are yet to be known.

DIG East Amir Farooqui said Mufti Taqi Usmani is safe.

Rescue official said the injured were shifted to a hospital for treatment.

The police and Rangers have cordoned off the areas following the incidents.

Taking notice of the incident, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has sought report from the Inspector General Sindh Police.

Karachi has seen relative calm after decades of violence that claimed thousands of lives in the metropolis that is home to at least 20 million people.

The peace returned to commercial hub of the nation after police and the paramilitary Rangers launched crackdown against criminal elements in the city.

Prime Minister Imran Khan issued a "strongly worded condemnation "of the incident and expressed his anguish at the killings of Mufti Usmani's guards.

"Scholars such as Mufti Usmani are assets to the country and the Islamic world," he said in a statement released by the PM House. "Provincial government should ensure the security of religions scholars."

The prime minister labelled the attack on Mufti Usmani a "deep and disgusting conspiracy" and ordered that "all possible measures be taken to expose it".

Governor Sindh Imran Ismail while speaking to Geo News said, "Moulana Taqi Usmani had been receiving threats for some time. He had reported that he had been receiving threats and his security had been increased."

"Hopefully we will arrest the suspects by this evening," he added.

Mufti Saab has been supportive in many areas where politicians, terrorists, extremists, Sufis would not be happy with his actions or his words/works.

I wouldn't be surprised to find that these people are Deobandi Hazrat Worshippers!

Jazakallah for clarifying. Apart from knowing him as a senior scholar don't no much about him so assumed he was someone who kept himself to himself.

The enemies know that people like him are currently irreplaceable. It would probably take 100 Scholars at the current state of our production to cover his level of work.

@Abu Mohammed You are taking your Hazrat worshiping agenda to far with that far fetched claim.

I think it was his Father Mufti Shaafi Saab rahmatullahi alaiyh that was asked something about him. In response he said "Tumhe kya patha Taqi kya cheez hai" (What do you know about what kind of a person Mufti Taqi (DB) is).

May Allah Ta'ala protect him and keep his shadow over us. The crown of The Ummah.

Translation : Do not direct the deadly attack on me towards any sect (islamic). It looks like this is the act of enemies of the country to create confusion. Allah ta'ala has made it unsuccessful and the credit goes to my two companions who are martyred and the injured who are going through operation.

It is more likely to have been orchestrated at the behest of the Evil Three (Mossad, CIA and RAW) rather than a sect. Mufti Taqi Usmani had recently been involved in a meeting with the Taliban leaders in Islamabad if reports are to be believed.
