Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has warned the government to end extortion and the rising crimes in Karachi or the party will expose those involved in conspiring against the city.
According to a press release by the MQM, Hussain was speaking to the members of Coordination Committee in London.
Hussain said that everyone knows which influential organisation is involved in kidnappings of businessmen for extortion.
He further lamented that Karachi is at the mercy of terrorists as part of a planned conspiracy, and added that the government has failed in taking any action.
Earlier, a delegation of the All Karachi Tajir Ittehad, led by its head Atiq Mir and Vice-President Jamil Paracha, met the MQM Coordination Committee members Wasay Jalil and Tauseef Khanzada.
The traders had reportedly briefed the committee on the threats sent to them by extortionists. They said that while extortion was initially restricted to a few areas, it had now spread to Liaquatabad and Gulbahar.
