MWM, allies end sit-in at Numaish ChowrangiAugust 19, 2014
KARACHI: Majlis-e-Wahdatul Muslimeen, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam, Pakistan Sunni Tehrik and Sunni Ittehad Council on Thursday ended their sit-in in Karachi, which was staged in support of Tahirul Qadri-led Inqalab March for two days at Numaish Chowrangi.
It is pertinent to mention here that MWM had been staging sit-in at Numaish Chowrangi for last two days after Maghrib prayers.
Ali Ahmer said that MWM ended its sit-in after their leader Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafari summoned Karachi leaders to Islamabad to discuss the current political scenario in Islamabad and talks offer from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government.
“We also consulted other parties for ending sit-in in the city and they also agreed to it,” he said adding that they had not left this option and if their leaders would again ask them to stage sit-in they would do it again.
He said that the party leaders that were summoned in Islamabad to discuss negotiation offer from PML-N government included MWM Karachi Secretary Allama Hassan Hashmi, Allama Nisar Abidi, Ahsan Mehdi, Jawad Haider, Salman Hussain and Engineer Raza Naqvi.
Meanwhile, a source privy to the development told that lack of participation from allied parties except MWM in the sit-in and small number of participants at Numaish Chowrangi forced the MWM leadership to culminate this protest. “Negotiation offer from PML-N government to PAT leader Tahirul Qadri also paved way for ending this sit-in,” he said.
