Farooq Sattar will file the suit in the Sindh High Court over the MQM chief’s character assassination.

KARACHI: The Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) filed a defamation suit worth Rs5 billion against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday, Express News reported.

MQM leaders Farooq Sattar and Senator Farogh Naseem personally filed the suit in the Sindh High Court for MQM Chief Altaf Hussain’s alleged character assassination in the wake of PTI leader Zahra Shahid Hussain’s murder.

Imran had held Hussain responsible for Zahra’s murder and accused him of inciting violence through his public broadcasts.

MQM said it had sent a legal notice to Imran following his accusations but received no response in return. The party has now filed a petition in the court and demanded Rs5 billion as compensation money.

MQM is the petitioner, while Imran and PTI were made party in the case.

Known as the mother of PTI, Zahra was shot dead outside her house in Karachi on May 18. The very same day, Imran Khan said he held Altaf Hussain responsible for the murder.

What does Mr. Altaf hope to accomplish with this suit, now that it has become obvious that MQM is involved in murder, robbery, extortion and spying for foreign nations.
