Khwaja Asif refuses to tender apology over remarks
“I have not given any such remarks that I should apologize for,” said minister in a statement here.
MQM on Tuesday warned that if an unconditional apology was not given, the party would keep boycotting the sessions of the National Assembly and the Senate.
A large number of MQM workers, including women and children, yesterday gathered outside the Karachi Press Club and staged protest against the Asif’s remarks.
The defence minister had said during his National Assembly speech that the genuine Mohajirs are immigrants from Jalandhar and Ludhiana that drew MQM’s ire.
