KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) will observe a mourning day on Saturday (today) regretting the judicial killings and arrests of their party members, Aaj News reports.
The Rabita Committee member Haider Abbas Rizvi said in a press conference on Friday that MQM is not against the targeted operations but because of such operations, most of the party workers have been arrested on suspicion without any proven charges.
He further stated that many of the party workers are missing since months and no action has been taken by the authorities. “Our party workers have sacrificed their lives for protecting and safeguarding the rights of the country,” says Haider Abbas.
Private schools, markets, public transport and other business activities will also remain closed.
All the members and officials of MQM party will wear a black band to record the protest.
