Altaf announces sit-ins across Karachi today

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday announced sit-ins across Karachi to secure release of MQM workers taken into custody by Rangers personnel in late night raid on a party office in Gulshan-e-Maymar, ARY News reported.

Addressing party workers and officials, who were staging a sit-in outside Chief Minister House, Altaf Hussain said that former Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Chaudhry in the Karachi unrest case maintained that all parties in Karachi have militant wings but sadly, the operation is only being carried out against MQM.

Earlier, talking exclusively to ARY News, MQM chief lamented that banned outfits are operating openly and carrying out terrorist activities with impunity but law enforcement agencies are busy raiding MQM offices.

He maintained that such acts can further enrage an already disgruntled population and spread hatred among masses. MQM workers are being tortured in custody besides being labelled as ‘Indian agent’.

“Stop this trend or bring a tank to roll all Mohajirs (immigrants) to death”

MQM chief claimed that it is his party which backed army in every operation and lauded army’s martyrs.

He appealed President of Pakistan, Prime Minister, Federal Interior Minister and Chief Minister Sindh to order release MQM workers arrested from the party’s MPA office.
