The report further says, “British authorities held formal recorded interviews with senior MQM officials who told them the party was receiving Indian funding.”

Meanwhile, the Indian High Commission has rejected the report. It said “Shortcomings of governance cannot be rationalised by blaming neighbours.”

The reports also say that BBC has also temporarily  closed its office in Karachi.

    With apology, what thick headed politicians & media in Pakistan believing BBC! Have you forgotten weapons of mass destruction (WMD) that they claimed in Iraq still not found and here we are boosting the news against MQM on BBC showing full faith on them. These statements were recorded in year 2012 any credibility so far none. What about if BBC says tomorrow that they have made a mistake and apologise to MQM and giving them a clean chit that they were never involved with RAW in the first time. Have you heard a word called double crossing, western are good in such things, think and think hard, why on earth BBC will go that far to issue such a statement specially against India while Indians & them wine and dine together all the time in Britain and enjoy common interests. When We are going to learn?
