KARACHI: Muttahida Quami Movement’s Coordination Committee has said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should resolve the issue of strikes rather than criticizing the rights of protest of the people.

In a statement, the coordination committee said that the justification of the Prime Minister over the remarks of “Makkhi” to the victims of custodial killings in Karachi, said that the innocent Muhajirs were arrested by the Law Enforcement Agencies and being killed in their custody.

The Committee said: “The Karachiites have no intention to call strike for nothing, but if they are victimized, they will definitely react. It demanded of the Prime Minister and Interior Minister to immediately constitute a monitoring committee for ongoing Karachi-operation.
