MQM Retaliates | Allegations Against Leader Baseless | 'We Stand with Altaf'
KARACHI: Members of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) Central Coordination Committee in London and Karachi held a joint press conference on Thursday evening, terming allegations leveled by Mustafa Kamal and Anees Qaimkhani against Altaf Hussain as ‘an insult to the intelligence of those who vote for the party.’
“The return of Mustafa Kamal and Anees Qaimkhani is part of a conspiracy but MQM stands by Altaf Hussain,” said party leader Farooq Sattar.
He said similar allegations were levelled against MQM during last year's NA-246 by-polls.
“But people voted in our favour which implies that the people of Karachi, regardless of their religion, sect and class, stand with Altaf Hussain and the MQM,” claimed Sattar.
He advised Kamal to support Wasim Akhter, the elected mayor, and help Akhter during his work with his experience if "he truly sympathises with the people of Karachi".
Speaking via telephone from London, Rabita Committee convener Nadeem Nusrat lashed out at the media for making “an issue out of a non-issue.”
“Media gave hours of air time to people with no mandate,” complained Nadeem Nusrat.
He said the party does not need to clarify itself because the “people's court has always issued its verdict in favour of MQM.”
“On one hand the MQM chief is not allowed to appear on media, but the same media airs baseless allegations against Altaf Hussain”, maintained Nusrat.
