KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain on Wednesday condemned the arrest of Nadeem Hashmi, a former PMA belonging to the MQM.
In a statement issued from the MQM’s London secretariat, Altaf asked the Sindh government to explain the reasons and clauses of the law under which the former Member of Provincial Assembly was taken into custody.
“I have always advised MQM workers to remain calm and patient and appealed for the same today,” the MQM chief said.
Altaf also claimed that the Sindh government was conducting one-sided action against the MQM office bearers and activists.
The MQM’s Rabita (coordination) committee, which met in London and Karachi headquarters to decide the further course of action, also condemned the arrest of party member.
Nadeem Hashmi was arrested late on Tuesday over suspected involvement in the murders of two policemen in Karachi’s North Nazimabad area and was subsequently shifted to the Pirabad police station where a case has been registered against him.
