According to MQM Rabitta Committee (RC), more than 500 workers including officer bearers and women were attending a general workers’ convention at an MQM sector office in Scheme 33, Gulshan-e-Maymar where conversation were in progress regarding restructuring of the party and matters about Eid-ul-Azha. In between the discussions, Rangers conducted a raid and arrested many workers.
Rangers restricted MQM’s Minister of Youth Affairs Faisal Sabzwari and MQM MNA Muzammil Qureshi from entering the office during the raid.
MQM RC strongly condemned the arrest of party workers and declared it unjust.
Members of MQM RC demanded Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif, President Mamnoon Hussain, Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar and CM and Governor Sindh to take notice of the unfair arrest.
