Pakistan writes letter to UK over BBC report


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has written a letter to British government over a BBC report that claimed the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) was receiving Indian funding.


The letter that was written by the foreign office with the approval of Pakistan’s interior ministry sought details of alleged confessions made by some MQM leaders about Indian funding.

The letter noted that BBC’s revelations were a cause of great concern for Pakistan. On Thursday, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has invited UK High Commissioner to discuss the BBC report.
