MQM Offices SEALED across Punjab


Crackdown against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) continues as law enforcement agencies locked and unit offices across town on Thursday.

Offices of the political party in Federal B Area, North Nazimabad, North Karachi and other areas have been closed.

Notices have been displayed outside each of the offices closed by the security staff that warn of action against anyone who tries to start the party centres.

On the other hand, law enforcement agencies have nabbed two girls workers associated with assault on private television channel while a criminal connected with militant wing of the party was arrested in Liaquatabad.

The crackdown was launched other law enforcement agencies and by Rangers after MQM Chief Altaf Hussain presented a speech via phone and instigated workers to assault a personal television channel. The assembly, on incitement of the party leader, increased anti state slogans.

Chief of the Army Staff General Raheel Sharif called Rangers Sindh Director General and took notice. The

Director General was ordered to take immediate actions against the workers that were violent.

In the aftermath of Dr Farooq Sattar, the incident and Amir Liaquat, leaders of the party workers in Pakistan were detained for a night.

After that day Amir Liaquat went on to discontinue his political career and mentioned turmoil in the party for the judgement.

In the most recent development in party issues, Waseem Akhtar was elected Mayor of Karachi after polling was ran around eight and a half months after local government elections were organised in Sindh.

Exactly the same day, Altaf Hussain declared to step aside and trust rabita committee in Pakistan with leadership until his well-being improved.

The announcement came in after Dr Sattar, during his press conference justified Hussain s anti-state sentiments by saying that such statement were outcome of mental pressure and melancholy he endures from.
