KARACHI: BBC does not present any report without investigation, said Imran Khan, Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf chief. “It is really a point to ponder for the government. Prompt action should be taken against MQM.”
He also accused PML-N for the law and order situation of Karachi, saying that both parties are responsible for it.
A BBC report on Wednesday claimed the officials in Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) have told the United Kingdom authorities that they received Indian government funds. The report accused the MQM of training hundreds of militants in India, and using them to inflict terror on the streets of Karachi.
Jamat-e-Islami Chief, Siraj-ul-Haq said that the report is enough to open the eyes of the govt.
Addressing a public rally at Summer Bagh, Siraj ul Haq said that the rulers had closed their eyes shut to what was happening in Karachi for the last 30 years to keep their interests secured.
“The allegations against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) should be investigated”, Haq said.
Meanwhile, MQM co-ordination committee claimed, “We believe that people of Pakistan will reject this false and baseless report in the same way as they have been doing in the past.” The Co-ordination Committee urged MQM office-bearers and workers not to get provoked by the misleading BBC report. It asked them to remain peaceful. It hoped that the media trial against the MQM would reach its logical end.
“MQM is a peace-loving political party that believes in the unity and integrity of Pakistan,” said Altaf Husain, MQM chief while addressing a press conference at nine-zero.
