Altaf laments intellectual silence over Sep 30, Oct 1 tragedies
On the 26th anniversary of the martyrs of 30th September and 1st October, MQM chief said that both the killing incidents were a conspiracy to pit Sindh’s permanent residents against each other. Innocent Mohajir men, women and children were massacred.
He lamented that the culprits of the deadly massacre are still roaming free and the silence of intellectuals is based upon prejudice.
On Friday, September 30, 1988, a dozen gunmen on motorbikes fired indiscriminately at people in the streets making approximately 250 casualties , mostly Mohajirs, in South Hyderabad.
