LAHORE: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has invited Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) to attend an all parties conference being organised by the party, Express News reported on Tuesday. PTI has said that a decision will be taken after consultation with party members.

Members of the MQM have been meeting representatives of political parties in an effort to hold a roundtable conference on national security, featuring stakeholders – including military leadership, religious and political leaders and intellectuals.

A delegation of the MQM Rabita Committee led by Deputy convener Senator Farooq Sattar met PTI President Javed Hashmi and Shah Mehmood Qureshi in Lahore today.

@JoinHands!: very disapponting response. This is not how politics should be in our country. It is important hear what is being said, but not who is saying it. If it is in national interest it deserves hearing and delibration.

@Mr Ali: I respect any and all political parties, and those who can get elected as they have the right to preatch their idias, said that, people judge you on your words and by your action, and if any one preach and his action does not match? He mst be reminded. And even shut up call must be given.
