Senior members of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Sunday announced Farooq Sattar no longer belongs to the party.

According to Express News, MQM’s Mustafa Azizabadi, Qasim Ali Raza and Wasay Jalil issued a statement from London claiming Sattar's party membership has been cancelled. The senior MQM leaders suggested Sattar's party membership has been cancelled because he committed ‘treason’ repeatedly.

MQM joins NA in condemning Altaf’s incendiary speech

Sattar has no right to impose administrative decisions and he is no more MQM’s elected parliamentary leader, the leaders were quoted as  saying. They further said Nadeem Nusrat is the only elected convener of MQM.

Late on Saturday, MQM-Pakistan named party leader Farooq Sattar as convener of its Rabita Committee amid a major reshuffle in party ranks. MQM Pakistan turned down the offer of party's London chapter leader Nadeem Nusrat to rejoin the party founder after tendering an apology.

Will not accept 'minus Altaf' formula, asserts Wasay Jalil

The committee named Amir Khan as senior deputy convener and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui was designated as deputy convener.


Yasser | 5 years ago | Reply Media should not give coverage to MQM London anymore. They all are not Pakistan citizen, their interference in Pakistan matters is creating hurdles, especially at time when India is trying to isolate Pakistan nationally and internationally.
Parvez | 5 years ago | Reply This is funny ...... Farooq Sattar appears to be on firm ground here but his and his followers credibility still needs to be restored and for them to insist on calling themselves MQM makes that difficult.
