MQM’s lawmakers have no control on Altaf Hussain: Nisar


ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday during his address in the National Assembly asked Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) to “control their chief Altaf Hussain,” and told MQM lawmakers they “have no control on what happens in London” where party supremo Altaf Hussain has been residing for years.


Addressing the National Assembly session this evening, Nisar said, “We are willing to talk to MQM on any issue at all,” adding that, “the problem is the speeches of MQM chief Altaf Hussain.”

Interior Minister said the government, the Army and the Parliament are not against the MQM.

The interior minister went on to say that the statistics that are depicted by MQM members are completely inaccurate.

Nisar further said that Altaf’s policies have escalated the situation to such an extreme limit that ‘damage control’ will take time.

Nisar claimed that there has not been as much peace in Karachi during the last five years as there has been in the last one month.

The minister added that the Rangers have been ordered to not arrest any Parliamentarian without asking first.

Regarding the Kasur child abuse scandal, he said it was a heinous crime and the entire nation has similar views on the issue.
