AHMED RAZA

KARACHI: Veteran lawyer and Vice President of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Ahmed Raza Kasuri has said that the remarks of Mutahida Quami Movement (MQM) founder were tantamount to treason.

He was speaking during a visit to the office of ARY News to express solidarity of behalf of former president Pervez Musharraf over the attack by MQM workers on 22nd August.

Kasuri demanded that the MQM founder Altaf Hussain be tried under Article 6 of the constitution of Pakistan. He said that that it was the responsibility Nawaz Sharif to initiate the proceedings against him.

He said that the Urdu-speaking Muhajir community were two separate entities, and he has deep respect and consideration for the Muhajir community.

He said those in the MQM who were not involved in subversive activities should be given a safe passage and given an opportunity to defend themselves and be a part of the society.

He expressed disappointment over the hesitance of Nawaz Sharif in initiating proceedings over those raising anti-Pakistan remarks.
