Targeted Killings: JI seeks MQM exclusion from Sindh govt

JI chief says targeted killings in Karachi will only end if MQM is excluded from the Sindh government.

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.

Dr. Israr Orakzai | 10 years ago | Reply I have lived in Karachi amongst many Muhajireens. The MQM then in the 90's and now in the new millenium are Black and White. They have changed radically and i really appreciate their social work for humanity, whether its Eid ul Azha ir New year. The MQM follow the path of prosperity. I think that Jamaat Islami should not involve our Religion Islam into Politics they too are desirous to have a part in the government. First Jamat e Islami must change their name and then rejoin politics. Dont play with the Belief that our Holy Prophet (SAW) has taught us. We know that when it comes to their own consent, even Jamaat e Islami join hands with their own so called Kafirs. The Shia community and make MMA. So dont play stupid games and donot fool people. MQM is a very reputable jamaat. I appreciate their work they did in KARACHI.
VoK | 10 years ago | Reply The non-entity is spewing venom again. A few misguided souls did vote the terrorists into office when Naimatullah was "elected" Nazim of Karachi but that wrong was corrected and the true representatives of the people of Karachi were voted into power after that catastrophe. See how Karachi has changed for the better but the non-entities have been destabilizing the city because they have been routed time and again by the masses.
