Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has asked his party’s activists to tender an apology to the members of Coordination Committee after emotionally charged workers violated organisational discipline at the party’s headquarters, Nine Zero.

According to details, MQM activists gathered at Nine-Zero late Saturday night to register their protest against Imran Khan’s statement. During the protest, some emotionally charged MQM workers assaulted members of the party’s Coordination Committee for failing to act against those who insulted Altaf. The equipment of mediapersons covering the protest was also damaged by protesters.

Taking serious note of the incident, the MQM chief ordered those who violated the party discipline to tender an apology to the members of the Coordination Committee within 24 hours.

syed | 7 years ago | Reply To MQM supporters, is it not obvious now that how democratic the party is! Why all of sudden "poor middle class faces" in rabta community are being assaulted. Why with in over night, Altaf calls for inter party elections, as you may call it :). The fact is that Altaf is not a leader, he is the owner of MQM. He will do what pleases him.
