Altaf deplores killing of MQM worker, his sonSeptember 15, 2014
KARACHI: The Founder Leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain on Tuesday condemned the brutal killing of an MQM worker and former councillor Muhammad Rashid and his young son Muhammad Aadil in Orangi Town.
He termed the incident an act of blatant terrorism and complete failure of Karachi operation. Rashid was a worker of MQM Unit 120 of Orangi Town Sector.
In a statement, Hussain said that MQM workers and religious scholars belonging to difference schools of thought and working professionals were being gunned down incessantly in the city but the performance of law enforcement agencies in this connection was deplorable and disappointing.
He lamented that the elements involved in terrorism and bloodshed were free from the grip of law enforcing agencies which had clearly proved the utter failure of Karachi operation and exposed its wrong direction.
“The manner in which terrorists have brutally gunned down both the father and the son proves that terrorists are not only ruthless but also they consider themselves away from the reach of the proverbial long arm of the law.”
Hussain expressed his heartfelt condolences to the victim family and said that he and MQM’s workers shared their grief. He prayed to Almighty Allah to bless the souls of the slain MQM worker and his young son and give strength & patience to the grieve family to bear the loss.
Hussain demanded of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to bring the brutal killers to justice. He also urged them to take notice of the unending incidents of terrorism and bloodshed in Karachi and take solid and positive steps to stop it.
