Jamat e Ahle Sunnat and Tehreek Awam e Ahle Sunnat’s backing of Muttahida Qaumi Movement came as no surprise to anyone.
However, Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen stunned everyone on Sunday when it announced to support Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf in the run for NA-246 seat.
MWM is a party which has been quite vocal against the Taliban since the very beginning, while it is a common perception about PTI chairman Imran Khan that he supports talks over an operation against Taliban and is in favor of opening of their office in the country.
On the other hand, MQM has that clear stance that the Taliban are anti-state elements and it has been demanding an all-out operation against all such militants.
Despite all these things, MWM support for PTI in NA-246 astounded everyone in the loop, after all politics is politics.
