KARACHI: In reply to the defamation notice issued by Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) against him, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said on Wednesday that party leader Zahra Shahid was killed after an ‘inciteful’ speech by Altaf Hussain.

Imran in his reply stated that terrorists were arrested by Rangers after a raid at MQM headquarters Nine Zero – something that proves the party is a terrorist organisation, Express News reported.

Hence, added Imran, the defamation notice is baseless, non-maintainable.

In July 2013, the MQM had filed a defamation suit worth Rs5 billion against the PTI chairman.

Party leaders Farooq Sattar and Senator Farogh Naseem personally filed the suit in the Sindh High Court in the wake of PTI leader Zahra Shahid Hussain’s murder after Imran hit out at Altaf.

Urban Legend | 6 years ago | Reply Imran Khan named Altaf Hussain as the killer of Zahra Shahid within hours of her murder. Now he has changed his mind and allegation is incitement causing the murder. IK is either a dumb headed or a person who can ridicule and blame anyway without proof. There is something which is called Court of Law - IK must go to courts instead of becoming media celebrity. Once the media dumps him, he would become another Sheikh Rasheed.
