Ali Zaida, a staunch MQM opponent, tweeted to the US State Department a verdict by US District Court which allegedly says that MQM meets the definition of an undesignated terrorist organization.
“Pls monitor ur own courts before meddling in Pakistan” (Please monitor your own courts before meddling in Pakistan), the tweet posted by the PTI leader says.
Answering a question during the daily press briefing on Friday, the state department spokesperson had said that US is closely monitoring those events and the authorities are aware Pakistani security forces have arrested some MQM members allegedly involved in violent protests, and that these operations have included the closure and the demolition of offices deemed to have been illegally constructed.
