MQM to agitate against extortionists, feudal patrons

Published: March 16, 2012

MQM will stage an agitation outside the Sindh Assembly on Friday.

KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has decided to stage protests inside and outside the Sindh Assembly on Friday against extortion, a statement issued late on Thursday read.

The MQM had called an emergency meeting of its cooridnation committees in Karachi and London in which they decided to agitate against extortionist mafia, who, the MQM alleged, had patrons amongst some of the feudal lords in Sindh. Some of these feudals, they claimed, sat in the Sindh Assembly.

The statement read that while the MQM was demonstrating restraint on the orders of party leader Altaf Hussain, otherwise, they warned, that they could very well handle the situation on their own.

Accusing some members of the Sindh Assembly as treating the coalition as they way ground, MQM warned that this practice must be desisted, otherwise they could withdraw from the assembly.

It also invited the public to join their agitation against extortion on Friday.

    All Commentors from outside Karachi .Pray check the the crime records and FIRS of Karachi’s police stations and talk to the Business Communities
    90% of the crimes are committed in Karachi ( especially Extortion ) by thugs from Interior Sindh and Upcountry . 90% of the SHOs of Karachi are from Interior Sindh and upcountry .

    And poor me …..always wondering how come so many people in Punjab and Interior Sindh could “afford” a notebook to wrtite silly comments against Karachi .Gotcha …… : )

    I am from KHI and i can tell you that MQM is pretty much involved (as much as PPP ANP as well).

    People above who are trying to be smart and putting these “non karachiite” divisions stop fooling yourself and others
