Raza Haroon joins Mustafa Kamal’s caravan


KARACHI: Raza Haroon, Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s dissident leader and ex-member of the Sindh assembly who arrived in Karachi today, has announced to join Mustafa Kamal’s unnamed political party, Samaa reported.

Addressing a press conference along with Mustafa Kamal and others, Raza Haroon said that Kamal and Anees Qaimkhani had taken courageous step on March 3 by taking stand against the ‘evil’.

Endorsing Mustafa Kamal’s take on MQM’s top leadership, Haroon said: “Everything that Mustafa Kamal and Anees Qaimkhani bhai had said in March 3 press conferences was absolute truth”.

Slamming the MQM chief, the former MPA asked Altaf Hussain as to when would he return to country from London.

“You are asking NATO to come to Pakistan…but first tell us when will you return to the country,” he questioned.

Commenting on the MQM’s connection with RAW, Haroon revealed that only four party members were responsible for the MQM’s connections with the Indian spy agency.

He said Sarfaraz Merchant’s documents in this regard are very clear and categorical.

Haroon said all the provincial assemblies and those in Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir had passed resolutions, slamming the MQM chief’s statements and demanding to initiate high-treason case against him.

On the occasion, Mustafa Kamal welcomed Raza Haroon on joining his newly formed party.

To a question, he said that he would reveal the name of his party on March 23, adding that in his first press conference he presented the party’s agenda.

Meanwhile, Anees Qaimkhani refuted media reports that claimed Mustafa Kamal had presented evidences against MQM leadership to the FIA director Shahid Hayat.

“Mustafa Kamal did not present any evidence to Shahid Hayat,” he said.
