A delegation of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) discussed with Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah on Saturday the arrest of their workers in Mirpurkhas and Tando Allahyar after the attack on Mustafa Kamal’s caravan.

The MQM delegation, led by deputy convenor Farooq Sattar, comprised MPA Syed Sardar Ahmed, MNA Iqbal Mohammad Ali, MPA Hir Soho, Rehan Zafar, Jamal Ahmed and others. Sattar claimed that the police have arrested a number of MQM activists after conducting raids at their houses on Friday.

The chief minister responded that his government did not believe in political victimisation. “We are political people and believe in political discourse,” he said. Shah said that there might be some political differences between the government and the MQM but this does not mean they victimise their opponents.

When Kamal went to visit Mirpurkhas, Shah had directed the district administration to ask him and his colleagues to use decent language against the opponents, he said. Shah assured the delegation that he will talk to the Mirpurkhas DIG about their grievances.
