KARACHI: Reacting to the statement of Nawaz Sharif, Hyder Abbas Rizvi, of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) said that the people who are criticising MQM had started their political careers with a military dictator. Now they are trying to become champions of democracy.
He said that MQM is also a victim of the May 12 incident. “If we were involved in the May 12 incident then who killed our workers,” he questioned. Setting aside allegations of Nawaz Sharif he said that not a single person was killed in Karachi after the murder of Dr Imran Farooq. “Punjab has now become a police state, so Nawaz Sharif should look at this and bring peace in the province,” he said.
