KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) London on Saturday denied the impression of two MQMs working in the country by saying that there is only on MQM which is working under Altaf Hussain, ARY News reported.
Addressing a press conference in Karachi Press Club, leader of the newly-elected London Rabita Committee Prof Hassan Zafar Arif said there was no London or Pakistan faction of MQM. MQM is only one party whose leader is Altaf Hussain, he said.
While reading from the press release, he said any conspiracy to finish MQM or divide it into parts would not yield success.
He alleged that MQM Pakistan leader Amir Khan deceived the Muhajir movement once again. While, he said, other MQM leaders like Farooq Sattar and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui were scared.
Zafar Arif demanded from the government to stop operation and arrests of MQM workers and open former MQM headquarters, Nine Zero, and all the other offices that have been sealed.
This should be noted that MQM London convener, Nadeem Nusrat, after consulting other party leaders has on Friday announced a 12 member rabita committee comprising Pakistan based and overseas leaders loyal to party founder and chief Altaf Hussain.
According to a statement released by the party, the committee includes Dr Hasan Zafar Arif, Saathi Ishaq Advocate, Momin Khan Momin, Amjadullah Khan, Kunwar Khalid Younus, Ashraf Noor, Akram Rajput, Ismail Sattar and Idress Alvi Advocate from Pakistan while the overseas members include Dr Nadeem Ehsan, Wasay Jalil and Mustafa Azizabadi.
