It could be result of internal strife: report

Imran Farooq's murder can be the result of internal strife within the MQM, according to the Guardian.


Express September 27, 2010

The murder of MQM convener Dr Imran Farooq can be the result of “internal strife”, London-based newspaper Guardian said on Sunday.

Quoting an unnamed source, the newspaper said Dr Farooq, who had been made inactive in the party after remaining in a prominent party position for quite some time, was planning to join a new party to be launched by former president Pervez Musharraf. Sources said Dr Farooq wanted to end exile and return to Pakistan “to renew participation in active politics”.

The source said of the motive: “It lies within the MQM.” The murder is being investigated by Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism branch because of the political dimension to the killing.

watchdog from UK | 11 years ago | Reply @Anonymous Thanks for enlightening me that Mrs Imran Farooq is under custody of SY. Even a child knows that. I am asking you why she is still under custody and what is the reason of holding her in custody that long. What is the underlying fear and if there is fear then from whom Okay I agree she is under bereavement and would not want to issue any statement. Why her father-in-law in Karachi come out in open and allay the misgivings in the minds of the public. Why brother in law, who is not in custody, is speaking laurels about the Chief of the MQM. You are right I have seen the pictures of Dr and Mrs Imran Farooq with Altaf Bhai and others in the secretariat. These pictures are from that period when he was in good books of the Bhai and are old pictures. How would you explain when all the Bhais were around big Bhai in order to celebrate the birthday of most celebrated personality this universe has produced and right at that time poor Dr Imran Farooq was knackered from his day's work and returning home rather than being with his mentor.
