LONDON: Former Sindh Home Minister Zulfiqar Mirza will speak in the House of Lords in London 11pm PST on Wednesday where he is expected to provide evidence to the House against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain.
Mirza contacted the Scotland Yard in London after arriving on Wednesday from Karachi via Dubai.
Talking to newsmen on arrival at Heathrow airport, Mirza said that during his address in British House of Lords, he will provide evidence to the House against Altaf Hussain regarding the murder of MQM leader Dr Imran Farooq.
"I will tell the authorities here that Britain is becoming a reason for terror in Pakistan by giving shelter to the accused," he claimed.
Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon has also arrived here on the same flight with Mirza on Wednesday.
At the Karachi airport before departure, Mirza told the media that he was going away for a week and the people of Pakistan were going to hear good news regarding a breakthrough in the Imran Farooq murder case. “I have two briefcases filled with proof which will help the Scotland Yard police,” he said.
Despite warnings from President Asif Ali Zardari telling his party workers to avoid associating with Mirza, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, along with PPP MPAs Imdad Pitafi and Fayyaz Bhutt, accompanied him to the airport.
MQM expresses reservations at Mirza's presence in London
Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) expressed serious reservations over ‘official protocol’ being given to Zulfiqar Mirza besides questioning Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon's presence with Mirza in London, reported Express 24/7.
MQM leader Babar Ghauri told the media outside the Parliament House on Wednesday that Mirza was seen off at Karachi airport by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) supporters.
He said that MQM wants an explanation from the PPP leadership on presence of Memon with Mirza in London on the allegations he is putting against the MQM.
Ghauri added that the MQM met Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani for a detailed discussion and the prime minister assured that an investigation will be done on the issue. A meeting with the president is also expected.
The prime minister ordered Interior Minister Rehman Malik to take action according to the law on the people who have been arrested and on display of arms, the MQM leader said.
