Days after Farooq Sattar announced a complete disconnect with Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain, the party’s coordination committee member Wasay Jalil has said any such decision will not be acceptable.
“We will not accept minus one formula on Altaf Hussain. Altaf Hussain is MQM and MQM is Altaf Hussain,” Jalil tweeted.
Regarding Sattar’s decision to present a resolution against Altaf in the National Assembly, Jalil said, “We will not accept any resolution in NA.”
“There will now be a complete disconnect with Altaf Hussain. We have no links with Altaf Hussain. It should be clear to all now,” Sattar had announced last week.
Sattar’s statement came after Altaf’s August 22 anti-Pakistan speech, which was followed by a Sindh-wide crackdown against the MQM. Scores of party leaders, workers were detained while a number of its offices were subsequently sealed and demolished.
