KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain claimed that innocent people are also being picked up along with criminals in the ongoing targeted operation in Karachi. He urged that once someone’s innocence is proved, they should be released.

“Five of our workers are missing for several months, which is creating hatred and hostility amongst people. If such conditions prevail, then the fate of Karachi would be similar to Balochistan.”

Addressing members of the PFUJ at the Lal Qila ground on Thursday night, Altaf said that that the city is the financial hub of the country, and its peace is very important.

“Karachi is the heart of Pakistan. If it stops beating, the whole country would be destroyed.”

Altaf said the operation in Karachi is important but should not be made controversial. He said that he has directed his workers to be patient and refrain from any activities which may affect the operation.
