Former Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Anis Kaimkhani has said he is ready to fight a legal battle and face all allegations and charges against him.

“I am ready to face any allegations and will fight a legal battle. I believe whoever is responsible for terrorism should be punished,” MQM’s former deputy convener, who has been accused of running teams of militants and target killers, told journalists in Karachi on Tuesday.

Quiet for a reason: Anis Kaimkhani vows to break silence soon

Kaimkhani, who returned to the country along with former Karachi mayor Mustafa Kamal last week — claimed a large number of leaders and workers were willing to join his newly-formed party.

“We will soon disclose who else is going to join hands with us,” Kaimkhani said. “People from across Sindh and even other provinces are contacting us."

We are in a process of finalising a place for a rally, he added.

I stopped calling him bhai because there is no bhai-relationship now, says Kamal

Kaimkhani was associated with the MQM for nearly 30 years before he left the country in October 2013.

Earlier, responding to a question, Kaimkhani said his party will not be an ethnic party.

“We are working on the structure of the party and will open our offices across Pakistan."


His remarks come a day after former Sindh health minister Dr Sagheer Ahmed announced his decision to join hands with the estranged MQM leaders. He also resigned from the Sindh Assembly.
