LONDON: Referring to the murder of Zahra Shahid Hussain, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan  said the British government should stop its citizens from inciting violence.

He was speaking during an Iftar in London.

Known as the mother of PTI, Hussain was shot dead outside her house on May 18. Imran held rival Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief responsible for the incident and said “Altaf Hussain had openly threatened PTI workers and leaders through public broadcasts.”

Imran is in the United Kingdom on a personal visit, where he got a medical checkup and spent time with his sons.

While speaking to media, he reiterated his earlier stance and said the UK government is responsible as it was warned to act against Hussain following open threats to kill PTI workers.

smart move to divert attention of media from Elephant fund raising before his arrival on July 25, now most of the questions will be on litigation and MQM; MQM seems to have fallen for it ; they should have ignored his statements...

Such a courageous man IK, two of his MPAs gunned down, hundreds of ordinary people killed in KPK, a telephone caller (the Fatman) claims responsibility, no doubt who is the culprit,,,, but IK cannot utter a single word against that organization neither he tries to lodge an FIR against the Fatman Prince.

all he can do to divert attention from his London trip is by raising Zahra's Hussain murder issue (which should be condemned), how about in the same conference he could have inform the Pakistanis of getting the FIR registered against the TALIBAN leadership.

MQM bashing is the easiest way to get popular, keep it up IK, you have started losing the half million vote bank of Karachi....
