The Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) led a protest near Sindh High Court, Karachi as part of their countrywide demonstrations against enforced disappearances of their party workers on Friday.
MQM’s newly formed coordination committee decided to hold protests after four of the party’s workers were killed on Wednesday. They said that workers were being picked up from different parts of the city, and then tortured in custody. The death of their worker Ajmal Beg has been called an extra judicial murder.
In the last 48 hours, the party has lost seven of its activists.
MQM leader, Khawaja Izharul Hasan during the protest near SHC claimed the party’s official Twitter account has also been hacked.
According to officials, Altaf Hussain has asked his workers to be tolerant and not respond to violence at any cost.
