A letter to Indian HC might be a technical error: Farooq Sattar


KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Farooq Sattar refused on Thursday reports that the party has written to the Indian high commissioner, asking India’s help over ‘missing’ party workers.


“No one has written any such letter and it might be an error of judgment or a technical error,” Sattar told reporters outside the National Assembly building and requested them to avoid any further discussion on the matter.

According to a copy of the letter, MQM states that Pakistan’s sensitive agencies detained 12 of its workers on July 29 when they were travelling to Hyderabad from Karachi.

“Our workers are being arrested and India should raise its voice for missing MQM activists,” the contents of the letter read.

In the letter to Indian High Commissioner TCA Raghavan, MQM appeals Indian High Commission to raise voice for recovery of the detained/missing workers, describing their arrest as ‘violation’ of human rights and constitution of Pakistan.

The letter bears signatures of Arif Khan, Abdul Qadir Khanzada and Shabbir Qaimkhani.
