Mutthehida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief, Altaf Hussain’s speech has surely caused his party an intense damage, as the important members of his party, continue to break ties with him, pledging they no longer want to work in MQM, under Altaf Hussain.
Altaf Hussain’s Anti Pakistan remarks have turned severe aggression towards the MQM, where a lot of people are demanding for a permanent ban on the party and even apprehension of Altaf Hussain; after all, it is proved that the MQM Chief has had links with the Indian Intelligence Agency, RAW and whatever he has been doing all this time, was because he was under the ‘RAW’ influence.
Starting off with Dr. Farooq Sattar, the Altaf-Disowning ritual is now being performed by the MQM MNA, Kanwar Naveed Jamil, who has recently announced dissociation with Altaf Hussain, breaking all the links with the London-Based party and disowning the decisions that were being made at the headquarters, by the Party Chief. “I have nothing to do with Altaf Hussain or the London office, I have and will continue to support Pakistan and the Karachi-based party only,” Said the Rabita Committee Member on Wednesday.
A day after the riot created by the MQM workers, three of the MQM’s senior party leaders, including Kanwar Naveed Jamil, were apprehended by the police, where they were granted a three-day remand by the Anti-Terrorism Court.
As a result of the rampage on August 22nd, for which Altaf Hussain is blamed for provoking the mob; two cases were registered in Artillery Maidan Police Station against the MQM Chief. The rampage on Monday, August, 22nd, left one dead and 5 others wounded.
The riot, drew attention of all the other political parties and an immediate action was taken by the paramilitary forces, detaining nine MQM leaders, including Dr. Farooq Sattar and also, all the party offices across Karachi, were sealed by the Rangers, most of which by now, have been demolished for being constructed on an encroached land.
The severe retaliation from the paramilitary forces had come because of Altaf’s telephonic address to his supporters in which he criticized and threatened media channels for not giving sufficient coverage to his workers who were on their fifth day of Hunger Strike, and also, chanted anti-Pakistan slogans.
