MQM delegation meets CM Sindh to complain about arrests

KARACHI: An eleven-member delegation of the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) met with Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah to discuss a number of issues, including the recent arrests of MQM workers.

According to details, the MQM delegation was led by Farooq Sattar who protested with the Chief Minister of Sindh against the arrest of MQM workers in Mirpurkhas. During his meeting, Farooq Sattar complained to the Chief Minister that there was a particular group who was instigating violence among the people. He also requested PEMRA and the judiciary to take notice of the situation.

Farooq Sattar also urged the Chief Minister to stop the activities of vengeance against MQM workers to which the CM responded by stating that he did not believe in the politics of revenge. He further assured the delegation that he would not let anyone be harassed.

Scores of MQM workers were arrested after stones were pelted allegedly by some MQM loyalists at a rally of the Pak Sarzameen party activists. This took place after former Karachi mayor and ex MQM member Mustafa Kamal had arrived in Mirpurkhas to open his political party’s office in the city.

Mustafa Kamal has targeted MQM chief Altaf Hussain in recent tirades, accusing the Karachi-based party’s leader of retracting on his statements and being an agent of Indian intelligence agency RAW.
