MQM chief will leave a blot on Muhajirs for seven generations: Kamal


KARACHI: Chairman Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Mustafa Kamal on Monday said seven generations of Muhajir community will not be able to clear themselves from the blot Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain will leave on their foreheads.


“Altaf’s statements are on record against Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif and Director General Rangers Sindh Bilal Akbar in which he has abused them,” he said while condemning attack on ARY News and other media houses during an emergency press conference.

He said Altaf needed dead bodies for his politics. Our statements have come true about MQM. Thousands were jailed and he was happy over it.

“PSP strongly condemns raising of slogans against Pakistan in Karachi, as such conduct is not acceptable at all,” he said while referring to Altaf’s latest speech in which he has raised anti-Pakistan slogans.

He said Pakistan needed to stand against the Indian spy agency, RAW’s, agenda and its evil designs to disintegrate Pakistan.

Kamal said he shall be at the forefront to stand against these traitors. The whole nation should support us as only the PSP had the courage and potential to forcefully and fearlessly combat the agents and facilitators of RAW in Karachi.

He said Fitra and Zakat were used for the party expenditures.

MQM protesters storm ARY News office; SAMAA DSNG attacked

Dozens of political workers belonging to Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) stormed the office of ARY News in Karachi on Monday, resulting in a clash which killed one person and left many others wounded.

The move comes shortly after MQM announced holding protests in front of SAMAA, Geo News and ARY News against “lack of coverage of the party’s hunger strike” at press club.

Angry MQM protesters surrounded the channel’s office at Madina Mall and tried to barge into the building. They broke the channel’s entry gate and assaulted media workers.

Gunshots were also heard in the area, where markets and shops were closed.

Demonstrators also tried to burn SAMAA’s DSNG, leaving a cameraman wounded.

One unidentified man was killed and seven others injured including SAMAA’s cameraman, according to hospital officials. Demonstrators also tried to burn SAMAA’s DSNG.

“One was brought (to the hospital) dead, who was shot with a gun,” Dr Seemi Jamali, the director at Jinnah Hospital Hospital told AFP.

Heavy police and Rangers teams reached the scene and resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the protestors.

Senior MQM leader Dr Amir Liaquat Hussain tendered an apology for today’s violent protest by some party’s workers at the office of a TV channel.

“I regret and apologize if any of our workers is involved in assaulting media teams,” he told SAMAA. “This is against freedom of speech and press,” he said, adding MQM strongly condemns the violence.

He, however, said that MQM had nothing to do with miscreants who attacked media teams in Karachi.

“We strongly dissociate ourselves from protestors,” he said and added a third party could be behind the violence.
