The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) has decided to revoke the basic membership of party's senior leader Farooq Sattar, reports Express News.

The decision was made at an emergency meeting chaired by convener MQM-P and federal minister Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui at the party's headquarters in Bahadurabad, Karachi.

The report quoted sources as saying the Rabita (coordination) committee has decided to revoke Sattar's membership, saying leaders of the party will not maintain any sort of contacts with him.

In September, the veteran politician resigned from the Rabita Committee, saying he could no longer perform duties in the capacity.

Sattar had also confirmed earlier he was weighing up an offer to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Sattar lost the NA-247 seat to PTI candidate Dr Arif Alvi during the July 25 polls.

Earlier this month, Sattar and Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar were indicted in a decades-old Loudspeaker Act violation case.


Chacha Jee | 4 years ago | Reply Altaf Hussein was and is MQM. With him gone, MQM is gone... these leaders are just headless Chickens and are completely lost. All they csn do is to remember days when they could shut Karachi in few minutes and collect millions and millions of dollars from hapless Karachiates.
