Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan has called for emergency meeting to review situation followed by announcement made by MQM. The meeting was called at temporary MQM center at Farooq Sattar’s residence located in PIB Colony.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM)’s London-based leadership on Sunday announced the expulsion of MQM Pakistan leader Dr Farooq Sattar from the party in a statement shared by MQM leader Wasay Jalil.
Wasay Jalil, and party leaders Mustafa Azizabadi, Qasim Ali Raza and Muhammad Ishfaq in a joint statement released by the party’s London secretariat, announced that Dr Sattar had been expelled from the party due to ‘repeated betrayals to the party and the supreme leadership’.
MQM London leadership demanded Assembly members to step down from Assemblies, while those members, who did not resign would be boycotted socially.
In September, MQM leaders in the Sindh Assembly were also among lawmakers who unanimously passed a joint resolution seeking a treason case against those responsible for anti-Pakistan slogans, hate speech and subsequent violence on Aug 22.
The move followed the removal of Altaf’s London-based coterie from the top decision-making forum of the party by MQM Pakistan.
