Qaumi Awami Tehreek (QAT) president Ayaz Latif Palijo demanded on Saturday that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) be banned. The demand comes on the heels of BBC's revelations regarding alleged Indian funding to the party.
"Are there any more proofs required after Tariq Mir's [an MQM leader based in London] confession?" he asked at a press conference at his residence on Saturday. He said the MQM is more dangerous than any other militant group in the country.
"Altaf Hussain used Indian funding to keep fomenting ethnic strife in Pakistan," he said. Palijo also lambasted the reconciliation between the Pakistan Peoples Party and the MQM, adding that it contributed to further destruction of Sindh.
He urged the law enforcement authorities to arrest the leaders of both the parties instead of continuing with the ongoing crackdown against their rank and file.
