KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement MQM chief Altaf Hussain has strongly condemned the brutal killing of Syed Fasahat Ali in an incident of firing near Sindhi Muslim Society area of Karachi.

According to a statement issued on Thursday, Fasahat Ali was a former member of the Society Sector of the MQM, and presently he was discharging his responsibilities as a member of the Election Cell of the sector. He had left the sector office for his home, and he was attacked by armed terrorists near Sindhi Muslim Society. He died on the spot.

Condemning the killing of Fasahat Ali, Altaf said that Fasahat Ali was the fourth MQM worker who was killed in a row during the past 24 hours. He deplored that on the one hand, MQM workers were being killed extra-judicially while, on the other hand, bloodthirsty terrorists were slaying them one after another. How was it possible for the terrorists to carry out their nefarious activities despite the heavy presence of police, rangers and other lawenforcing agencies

He asked if the terrorists killing MQM workers were using magical powers to vanish into thin airs after carrying out their task. No investigation was being carried in any case, and no arrest was made.

MQM chief demanded of President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Mir Hazar Khan Khoso, and caretaker Chief Minister Sindh Zahid Qurban Alvi to take serious notice of the unending killings of MQM workers. He said that the killings should be thoroughly investigated, and the perpetrators brought swiftly to justice.

Hussain expressed deep sympathies to the mourning family members of the Fasahat Ali and said that he was sorely grieved on the killing of yet another senior worker of the party. He prayed to Almighty Allah to shower blessings on the departed soul and give courage and patience to the bereaved family members.
