Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said in a statement, on Thursday, that Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain’s interrogation is being carried out according to UK laws, Express News reported.

Recently, on June 20, as part of their investigation on the Imran Farooq murder case, Scotland Yard had raided Hussain’s London house and some material was seized from his residence.

Following this Altaf Hussain resigned as party head on June 30, voluntarily handing over party’s authority and responsibilities to the Rabita Committee, only to take back the decision of resignation few hours later on request of his party workers.

The interrogation is being carried out in London and not in Pakistan but the Pakistani government is being kept informed, Chaudhry Nisar added.

As we are talking about mohajirs, i find a very curious failure in identity of MQM. What about Mohajirs from Indian Punjab, who nodoubt suffered great many attrocities. And while we are at it, mentioning Muhajirs, Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz sharif's ancestors were Mohajirs too, from indian Punjab. Why only MQM started for mohajirs of Karachi and Sindh? But not Punjabi Mohajirs from india? MQM doesnt even represent 25% of total mohajirs in pakistan.

Get a grippe!
