Real estate king of Pakiatan Malik Riaz is grilled on social media with thousands of tweets pouring out with a demand to take action against him for grabbing land in Sindh and else for extension of his Bahria Town.
There is hardly a tweet in favour or Riaz.”Time to soft block all the mutuals who have lost their conscience and are constantly supporting Malik Riaz for few bucks. You’re free to hate me or say me whatever because no tolerance anymore,” says a tweet.
Qasim writes to his tweeter feed saying “Every human must be given right to decide what is good and bad for their future generations, tycoons like Malik Riaz and his facilitator Zardari are aiming to wipe out and displace our people from our land. We Rejects all projects of Bahria Town.”
Asif Somroo says “Brutality of Malik Riaz. He is killing and displacing indigenous people of Sindh. Army Chief is requested to stop the making of new Israel in Pakistan.”
“Tomorrow (June 7) Sindh Action Committee will hold protest at Bahria Town main gate at 10 am. Historic initiative by progressives of Sindh as the Military, Federal & Sindh govts facilitate Malik Riaz. Grassroots resistance is only way to hold mafias accountable,” Ammar Jan says.
“Dear Sindhis: today, “National Media” may cover the sit-in but through the lens of Malik Riaz & Co. — they won’t let people know how attacks are organized by others to divert attention from sit-in,” another wires on Twitter.
I support those protesting the illegal land grabbing by Malik Riaz & his cronies in the govt/army. The violent response of a few rioters cannot detract from the wider protests. Don’t be distracted from the injustice that has led to this situation. #SindhRejectsBahriaTown— Nida Kirmani (@NidaKirmani) June 6, 2021
Once again can’t see any channel reporting on the protests against Bahria Town and Malik Riaz in Karachi today. The is the sum total of media independence in Pakistan as everyone wants ads and Plots from Malik Riaz. https://t.co/vpqnNq57LO— Blue on Blue (@razzblues) June 6, 2021

I want you all to know one thing, any tweet posted in favor of Malik Riaz is a PAID tweet, always. Media isn't allowed to talk bad about him. I have friends in media who tell me how they're forced to ignore news about him. I repeat, any tweet that is in his favor is a PAID TWEET.— Komal Shahid (@ArmedWithWords) June 6, 2021
Today Malik Riaz and its sponsor Zardari will see the real Resistance. Grabbing lands of villagers in the name of development will not be accepted more. #SindhRejectsBahriaTown pic.twitter.com/ACI5LSgwNq— وقار علي (@WaqarSindhi12) June 6, 2021

Hatred against Malik Riaz has been growing in the country because of his alleged steps to deprive people of their land in the name of land acquisition and the government of the time often appears his facilitator. PAK DESTINY
