KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Coordination Committee on Monday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan was using the killing of Zahra Hussain for political gain.
Hussain was was shot dead outside her house in Karachi on May 18, 2013. She was PTI central vice president.
"Why is a party that didn't even condemn the killing of two of its elected representatives raising a hue and cry over the killing of Zahra, who wasn't awarded any party tickets during her life?," said MQM leader Haider Abbas Rizvi.
Addressing a press conference in Karachi, Rizvi said that Imran "acting as both a lawyer and a judge" accused MQM of Zahra's death, just an hour after the incident.
"This just shows Imran's political immaturity," said the MQM leader.
He said that accusations can't take a party anywhere and deaths that are used for political gains should be investigated.
Adding that PTI is answerable to public scrutiny, Rizvi said that PTI chairman's allegations against MQM chief, Altaf Hussain were baseless.
"Imran said he would make Altaf leave London but he was unsuccessful," said Rizvi.
