MQM condemns attack on Shia party activists

KARACHI – The MQM on Sunday condemned attempts to ignite sectarian violence in the city by killing its party activists belonging to the Shia community.
“There is a conspiracy being hatched to create a sectarian strife in the city by killing MQM workers belonging to the Shia community,” said MQM Rabita Committee member Wasay Jalil at a press conference at the Khursheed Begum Memorial Hall. Other Rabita Committee members including Kunwar Khalid Yunus, Gulfaraz Khattak, Ashfaq Mangi and Yousuf Shahwani were also present on the occasion.
“Shia activists of the MQM are deliberately being targeted. The conspiracy started with the brutal murder of the party’s MPA Raza Haider. Then the joint sector in-charge of MQM Nazimabad Gulbahar Sector, Adil Akhtar Jaffri was killed on January 3.
On Saturday, a senior party activist of the PIB Sector Yawar Abbas was murdered and some time later, Asim Abbas, a sector member of MQM’s Hyderabad Zone Sector H was shot and injured in Hyderabad,” Jalil pointed out.
Jalil also said that SMS were being sent around that are aimed at alienating Shia people from the MQM.
