MQM to stage sit in against Rangers deployment in Sindh


KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movment (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Tuesday called on Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Qaim Ali Shah and members of Sindh Assembly to pass a law that the Rangers were no longer required.


Altaf also announced that his party would stage a sit-in outside the CM House against what he said extra judicial killings and arrest of MQM workers.

“If Chief minister and lawmakers consider Sindh as their mother, they must pass law that Rangers were no longer needed,” Altaf Hussain said.

“Neither CM nor judiciary took notice when sector and unit in-charges of MQM were arrested,” he said.

Altaf added that the powers Nawaz Sharif was giving to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) will ultimately be used against himself.

Altaf Hussain said international organizations should raise voice against cruelties meted out to Sindhis, Muhajirs, Baloch, and Pakhtoons.

MQM chief also asked party leaders to write letters to international organizations to inform them about the aggression.
