PESHAWAR: Targeted killings in Karachi will only end if the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) is excluded from the Sindh government, Jamaat Islami (JI) chief Syed Munawaar Hassan said on Saturday.
Addressing at the Peshawar Press Club (PPC), the JI chief said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) had a majority in Sindh and should have formed the government without the MQM.
Referring to targeted killings in Karachi, he said that such incidents would continue if the people of Karachi continued voting in favour of “terrorists”.
Hassan also opposed the idea of launching an operation in North Waziristan, and said that if an operation was carried out there, the US will demand another operation in southern Punjab, insisting that militants had relocated there.
