Sukkur MQM Unit Office Demolished Samaa Tv Video
Police Monday demolished two unit offices of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) in Sukkur, Samaa reported. According to police, the party offices were built on illegal land.
The move comes a day when MQM distanced itself from the party chief’s anti-Pakistan speech, which led to violent attacks on media houses in Karachi. Veteran MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar said that the party would now be run and controlled from Karachi.
“Muttahid Qaumi Movement is a Pakistani party and should be operated from Karachi,” Dr Farooq Sattar told a press conference. “MQM dissociates itself from yesterday’s speeches, strongly condemns it and regrets if it has hurt the sentiments of the people of Pakistan,” he said.
“We also strongly condemn the incitement to violence. We categorically denounce it as torture is not part of MQM’s dictionary,” he said.
