Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) self-exiled leader Saleem Shahzad has said he will soon return to Pakistan in order to strengthen Farooq Sattar and his party.

“Soon coming to Pakistan to strengthen Farooq Bhai and RC (Rabitta Committee) in Pakistan,” he tweeted on Tuesday, minutes after Sattar dissociated the MQM from Altaf Hussain.

Sattar said Altaf’s Monday speech was regrettable, anti-Pakistan and anti-MQM.

The MQM will disassociate with anyone who resorted to violence and the party affairs will be run from Pakistan, he added.

MQM’s decisions will be taken in Pakistan, Farooq tells Altaf

The MQM in 2014 suspended Shahzad’s party’s membership, extending a warning to all members to strictly adhere to its code of conduct.

In April, his non-bailable arrest warrants were also issued by an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Dr Asim Hussain terror facilitation case.
