Allegations Denied by MQM's Leadership
KARACHI: All allegations by death-row convict Saulat Mirza in a recorded confession were denied by Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain, Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad and MQM leader Babar Ghauri on Wednesday night.
“I am not afraid of trial or media trial,” the MQM chief told a private news channel. “It is a conspiracy to defame MQM world over.”
He added that he never met or spoke to Mirza in his life.
A spokesperson for the governor said that Dr Ibad had never protected any criminal or convict and it was not in his power to do so.
Mr Ghauri questioned as to who had released Mirza’s video message hours before his execution and why.
He said Mirza never visited his home and he had fabricated a story.
“Neither my party nor Altaf Hussain had ever asked any worker to kill anyone,” he said, while talking to a private news channel. “I am ready to appear at any forum to clear my name.”
