TitleMurder Tongue
SynopsisIt is May of 1992. The state-sanctioned “Operation” has put the city of Karachi at constant unrest. Abdul Aziz Ansari wakes up at night and is informed by his daughter-in-law, Naseema that his son hasn’t returned home.
As a knock on their door late at night summons them to the hospital, what they witness along the way is known today as the most brutal chapter of the city’s history, a sentiment of systematic deep rooted hatred towards their race.
