  KMC clarify anti-encroachments action in Hill Park.  
  KMC spokesperson said that the actual position with regard to protest on demolition of mosque in the Hill Park is this that KMC was razing illegal encroachments on city parks, foot paths, drains and amenity plots under the Court’s order and directive which was given on the petition of former city nazim Karachi Naimatullah Khan by the Supreme Court. In this connection constructions established on 20 acres of Hill Park were demolished on 18 January and there was no any mosque on this area and the place which is being presented as mosque was allocated to the management of Eman Restaurant as its part whereas parks department store was located on the other side. The place of namaz could possibly be affected in the demolition of the restaurant and store. If so KMC can construct a beautiful place for namaz in any portion of the Hill Park where citizens could offer prayer, though a grand mosque was already available at the main entrance of the park and the master plan of this park have no other mosque. The spokespersons said that the anti-encroachments action was taken in the park after the area assistant commissioner checked all things and the deputy commissioner, police and rangers officials were also present on this occasion. KMC did not touch any mosque in its action against encroachments at Empress Market and other places in the city and if any mosque was there, arrangement for its transfer were made in consultation with the management of mosque, therefore it is only a propaganda as no mosque was there in the park.
