Example text

By attacking the army’s image of integrity by protesting the Rangers’ “unlawful” activities, the Sindhi fishermen and their media and political protectors touched a raw nerve with the military institution. Already tarnished by the Okara Farms scandal and the brutality of the antiterrorist operations in the FATA, the army’s prestige has once again been called into question and with it the terms of the protection racket that binds this military institution to society. By ceasing to protect the Rangers to restore the army’s image at little cost, General Musharraf confirmed the “illegitimate” nature of the paramilitaries’ extra-professional activities, constructed by Sindhi political society to denounce it.

The parallel market generally functions to full capacity whereas the Rangers artificially saturate the official market. Out of the 300 tanker trucks that fill daily at the Central District Federal B Area pump, only 40 are delivered at the official price. At the city’s main water supply point, located in the Muslimabad area, this ratio is even more imbalanced: although 1,000 tanker trucks fill there daily, only 80 pay the official price. 26 The protection racket set up by the Sindh Rangers is not limited to protecting organized crime actors who control Karachi’s parallel drinking water market, from which the paramilitaries derive a significant, though impossible to quantify, income.

By thus being subcontracted for tasks that until then came under the responsibility of the police force and municipal agencies in Karachi, the Rangers gained access to unlawful rents such as those generated by the parallel drinking water market. By virtue of a theory of necessity set forth by Pakistani jurists in the 1950s, the Rangers also benefited from special arrangements regarding the occupation of public property and fishing rights. These special arrangements enabled them to take control of legal markets for which they themselves first supplied “protection” until the civil government of Sindh stepped in to take its cut on the racket.
