Kidnapper of Major Kaleem Killed in Karachi

Haji Jalal of the MQM, two of his sons Usman Jalal, & Abdullah Jalal, and a passer-by Adnan Sohail, while the injured were Ahad and Raja who were admitted with critical injuries on 8th July 2009, within the limits of Landhi police station.

Jalal was elected a counsellor of Landhi 4 in 1987. He had been detained in Central Jail Karachi for several years in the case of Major Kaleem and was close ally of Altaf Hussain. 

Who killed him? Why MQM did not protest as they normally do and no senior leader attended his funeral?

He died with lots of secrets with him.

When Azeem Ahmed Tariq Chairman of the MQM was killed in his house, it was Mustafa Kamal current ‘mayor’ Nazim of Karachi who opened the door for the killers’. Azeem Ahemd Tariq use to call him ‘nephew’. Well there are many mafia style skeletons in the MQM’s closet.

MQM terrorists and criminals who were charged and convicted in Major Kaleem case were Altaf Hussain, Saleem Shahzad, Dr Imran Farooq with Rs 50 Laks head money, Aftab Ahmed, Ashfaq Chief, Javed Kazmi and Haji Jalal. The rest are Yousuf, Nadeem Ayubi, Ayub Shah, Ismail alias Sitara is town nazim in Karachi, Ashraf Zaidi in USA, Sajid Azad, Asghar Chacha Rehan Zaidi and Safdar Baqri.

On February 5, 1998 Advocate-General Shaukat Zubedi asked for a re-trial before a competent court, but the court didn’t agree with his contention and acquitted the appellants. Sind High Court acquitted them because the prosecution seemingly did not puruse the matter. 

If prosecution doesn’t pursue the case under ‘political pressures’, defence is going to win but that does not mean justice has been done.

The incident happened on June 20, 1991 and the FIR of the incident was lodged on June 24. The accused in the case had been charged with kidnapping the army officers and torturing them. Trial before STA Court No. 3, began before judge Ghazanfar Ali Shah in March 1993 and the judgment was delivered on June 9, 1994 when Altaf Hussain was in London and not in Pakistan.

Major Kaleem and three other Pakistan Army officers were patrolling the Landhi area in civilian clothes in an army jeep when about 20-armed terrorists took them hostage after seizing their weapons. The army men were taken to a place called White House in Landhi a torture cell where they were tortured and kept for seven hours. They were rescued when the police reached the place.

It was Altaf Hussain who issued a memo to his workers saying,” if there was war between Indian and Pakistan, MQM workers will be remain neutral”.

  1. As per February 14th 2009 reports that MQM has expelled Saleem Shahzad and Mohammed Anwar due to their secrete activities, indicate that something is being hidden behind the scene.

    Anwar was charged that he had failed to defend MQM in one of recent Dr Shahdid Masood, Maray Mutabiq program. Though officially denied but inside sources confirmed that ‘there’s another power game going on in MQM.’

    Mutahidda Qoumi Movement (MQM) is always in power games soon after winning its first election in 1988. After 1992 army operation then it has seen much turbulence, when a major faction of its leaders decided to disregard Altaf Hussain’s dictatorial policies those lead the whole Muhajir Community in chaos. During that the city of Karachi had witness moments when Muhajir community garlanded the photographs of Altaf Hussain with shoes, everyone was spitting on it and so on. Takbeer, an Urdu weekly magazine, was publishing the stories of innocent Muhajir girls, victimised emotionally & physically by Muhajir Qoumi movement hard core activists.

    Altaf Hussain, with the help of the then Chief Minister of Sind, Jam Sadiq Ali, who had arranged him to fly to Saudi Arabia and then to United Kingdom, had left Karachi, probably for ever. While going abroad, when Altaf Hussain was asked by a journalist as “when he will return back,” the close by standing US consular general had said categorically that, ‘he will return as the Viceroy of Karachi,’ indicated hidden foreign agenda and their vested motives.

    Power game is always there in MQM, when its late chairman, Azeem Tariq protested against Altaf Husain’s policies and decided to lead MQM without him. He was mysteriously killed in his own house “on May 1, 1993 Azeem Ahmed Tariq was assassinated, just a few days after he addressed a press conference where he made statements against Altaf. But it is still a mystery who was actually behind his killing. The three suspects, who were arrested for the murder, were also killed after they were released on bail” writes Mazher Abbas. Though the killer was produced on to Pakistan Television (PTV) by Interior Minister of Benazir Govt, Naseerullah Baber, later he had made free on bail with the help of Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqi’s, the member of National Assembly & APMSO chairman, govt record confirms.

    Then, Altaf Hussain brought forward, an elderly Senator Ishtiq Azher to help regain strength which was partially taken over by MQM (Haqiqi) lead by Afaq Ahmed and Aamir Khan under the patronage of intelligence agencies. Ishtiq Azher had done a great job and sidelined Haqiqi group, regaining Altaf Hussein’s lost power in Karachi/Hyderabad. He was removed from the convener ship of MQM Coordination Committee probably due to a fear that he might take up Altaf Hussain’s position, later he was implicated in a fake case of US visas selling.

    Later, Ajmal Dehlvi, clad in while Kurta-Payjama with red mouth due to Pan, an editor of daily Aman, who used to write slain Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi as Shaheed, took the charge of Rabita Committee and tried to defuse ‘killing’ between MQM rival groups and govt agencies. He was successful in opening a dialog with then Govt and militarily authorities. Suddenly he was side lined for unknown reasons.

    Sheikh Liaquat Hussain, father of famous MQM (A) activist, Aamir Liquat Hussain, took the charge and brought back MQM to its level, where Altaf Hussain became indispensable and mandatory for its existence. He was moved back again though his son had made his way in MQM by achieving National Assembly seat and minister ship. After that Dr Farooq Sattar, a soft spoken spokesperson of MQM took the charge and tried to gain Altaf Hussain’s confidence.

    Current turmoil in MQM is last few days, erupted in the form of expulsion of hardcore activist from Karachi & NED universities including UK based Dr Imran Farooq, once welcomed by Altaf Hussain with open hands, and Saleem Shahzad, a man who was behind most brutal killings in Karachi and Hyderabad, reconfirm that MQM(A) is about to be split. Imran Farooq since his arrival in UK wanted to run the party as per his wishes, likely in conjunction with intelligence agencies who had orchestrated his departure from Lahore airport years before. Ultimately, he wanted to gain the highest position in party as Altaf Hussain had never sacrificed the way his workers had. “Who can tolerate this?” says the political secretary of Altaf Hussain in his private meetings.

    It’s strange that anyone who disagrees with MQM founder, mysteriously killed or implicated in irregularities. Either it is Khalid Bin Walids’, former special envoy of Water Board Karachi, killing over skin-money dispute or it is Syed Safwan Ullah, former housing minister, who had made gross financial fraud in housing sector especially in Karachi , not willing to speak about these cases or against MQM’s top command.

  2. MY DEAR !!!!!!!!

    MR ALTAF HUSSAIN IS THE ONE WHO HAVE STILL RELATIONS WITH RAW AS HE VISITS INDIA WITH THE SAME IMBITIONS.

    want here to rememorise the memories of yours, at the time when I am writing this note an OPEN LETTER is posted from MR.ALTAF HUSSAIN to THE chief Justice of PKISTAN, MR.justice IFTIKHAR CHUDHARY.

    It is intesting to note that the sender Mr.ALTAF HUSSAIN subjected out the matter of his post as to TAKE ACTION AGAINST THE PERSONS, BEAUROCRATES, POLITICIANS as well the FEUDAL LORDS who justified and by using tactics of malafide intention, cutted out all the applications, appeals, FIRS, REPORTS, claims, pleas, Orders and cases agains them selves.

    What a horrible thing is done by the CHAIRMAN of MQM- the MAHAGIR SECT BUTCHER GROUP , may be he has forgeted the incident of 12th of MAY, 19th of june, 11th of june, 25th of march, the incident of PAKKA QILA, the incident of QAID ABAD, the Horrible rape of BUSHRA ZAIDI to Nahid Butt to Shazia to Farzana Sultan to Rais Fatima to Semi Zarrin etc etc. – the women have been disgraced in all looks, the self-exile of the great MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT CHAIRMAN, AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, the restotarion of AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, The matrydom of AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, the KARACHI OPERATION, the butcher of MAHAGIRS, the fake FIRS and cases AGAINST the ideological SERVANTS of the MOTTO of MAHAGIRS, the wall chalking against IMRAN KHAN, the killings of TECNOCRATES, the incident of KARSAS, and interesting to note all the alleged cases inwhich he(ALTAF HUSSAIN) is nominated, the nemerically 12 cases against the governor of sindh, ISHRAT-UL-IBAD KHAN, the nominated FIR of the KILLING OF AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, SHOs Bahadur Ali and Imdad Khatian, DSP Bashir Ahmed Noorani (from Sukkur), five relatives of DSP Nisar Khwaja, DSP Tanoli, SDM Mohammad Nawaz Khushk, Journalist Mohammad Salahuddin, Azim Ahmad Tariq, Zohair Akram Nadeem Pir Pagaro’s son-in-law, Salim Malik, KESC Chairman Malik Shahid Hamid??? And how finally a renowned scholar, Chairman Hamdard Foundation and Ex-governor Sindh Hakim Mohammad Saeed against him.

    The so called leader of the struggle used all shun and evil tactics to cuttoff MAHAGIRS from MAHAGIR politics, to is the day when MAHAGIRS think before and after saying and accepying their national IDENTITY that they are MAHAGIRS.
    they migerated here just for the WORD and RELIGION of islam, they looses all of their possession just for the love of ISLAM and the MUSLIMS, but THE PIR SAHIB realises peple that MAHAGIRS are the terrorists.

    As at initial times ALTAF HUSSAIN give slogans like, homeland or coffin”, “freedom or death” & called and the migertors as MAHAGIR NATION but when his evil termanologies were been gained he give the IDEOLOGY RUNNERS the label of , traitors, and one who disbelif the thought of altaf is sloganed as death to Quaid’s traitors .

    The first to fall was Azim Ahmed Tariq who was eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf who were directly received order from their master through phone calls. But Muthaidda ostensibly mourned his death and held various official agencies as responsible for it. But confusion subsided when the former chief minister of Sindh, Muzaffar Hussain Shah, declared on the floor of Sindh Assembly, Azim Tariq was killed by Hashamuz Zafar and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui both activists of Muthaidda.

    S.M. Tariq’s murder came in the immediate aftermath of the arrest of Hashamuz Zafar by the law enforcing agencies. He was a close aide of Azim Tariq, and a potential witness in his murder case. Muthaidda again held the agencies responsible for the murder, and mourned his death amidst touching statements. During 1992-98 almost 450 central leaders and supporter of MQM (H) were killed and eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf Hussain including Mansoor Ahmed Khan (Deputy General Secretary of MQM (H), Sardar Ahmed (Finance Secretary of MQM (H) Rehan Umar Farooqi (Ex Member National Assembly) and many others.

    it is well known that Altaf Hussain has shown himself to be an extremely impulsive man who can alter a “principled” stand sooner than one can say Jack Robinson, and often for no obvious reason, unless one takes into account his well known tendency for terrorism as a tool of political black mail. A look at the composition of his dialogue team over the last many years demonstrates this fact. Just because many of the members of this team could not contrive excuses for terrorism on the dialogue table, they were frequently discarded in favour of others. And saw the replacement of M.A. Jalil with Dr Farooq Sattar, followed by Senator Ashtiaq Azhar and more recently Ajmal Dehlavi and company. The same goes for MQM’s assembly members, who are changed every time the elections are held so that they wouldn’t take roots among the masses and carve out an exclusive niche for their own leadership.

    After the departure of the PIR OF LONDON, he and His companions used to transform them selves as lover of humanity , but at the initial times they were deliberately involved in the killings government officials, policemen and members of other ethno-linguistic groups, foreign induced philosophy of separatism.

    Today ALTAF HUSSAIN and the MUTHEDA QUOMI MOVEMENT forgetted out that who were Farooq Dada, Asif Zaidi, Ali Mota and many all, now they enlightly calls them the TERRORISTS, but they do all and every thing for the SUPERMACY OF ALTAF not for the MAHAGIR CAUSE.

    ALTAF HUSSAIN uses Z.A BHUTTOO speeches which he give before and after DACCA FALL like” Udhr Tum Ider Hum” , ALTAF during a telephonic address instigated his audience to chant the slogan “aadha tumhara aadha hamara” (half & Sindh for you, half for us). this not all, he is the most horrible and bloody selfish person, he only belive in self rule,on the day of 18th JUNE , SUNDAY , of 2006 KARACHI: MQM chief Altaf Hussain has demanded that the country should frame a new Constitution or fundamental changes be brought in the 1973 document. Delivering address on the occasion of 28th foundation day of AMPSO(ALL PAKITAN mutheda STUDENT ORGANISATION) in London late on Friday night, he said that these changes had become necessary in view of the conditions surrounding Pakistan after the 9/11 incident in USA.
    He suggested that a new constitution be framed by picking equal number of representatives from the country’s four provinces or changes be brought in the 1973 Constitution with the consent and consultation of the federating units. His address was also heard by gatherings in Birmingham, Manchester and several other cities and towns of England, according to a press release issued here on Saturday.
    HE criticises Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif for branding him as a coward for escaping from the country, Altaf said he wanted to know if the PPP and PML-N chiefs were brave then what forced them to quit home quietly. Commenting on the claim of Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif that they had signed the Charter of Democracy to force the army out of politics, the MQM leader asked as to who had installed Nawaz Sharirf as prime minister of the country. Did Nawaz Sharif ascend to the post after roaming in the streets and roads or travelling in buses like a commoner? He posed similar question to Benazir. Altaf posed another question to them to provide food for thought to the people as to whether either or both of them served the masses or plundered the nation’s wealth with both hands during the period of their “misrule”? He himself answered the question by saying that both the leaders once used to brand each other as plunderer and security risk, adding that they had now joined hands to collectively indulge in loot and plunder. “But the people are sensible enough to understand the game and motif behind the so-called Charter of Democracy,” he said.
    Altaf demanded an immediate end to operation in Balochistan, saying that the crisis should be resolved through negotiations and mutual understanding. He also called for bringing to end the system of Jagirdari and feudalism.

    BUT on the assisination ALTAF shed as always crocodile tears, and after that he coalates with the PPP. Think what horrible he is!

    ALTAF HUSSAIN the economy spaicially the economy and structure of KARACHI CITY just for his own peace and fun, The movement of Haqparasti (truth worship) is thus kept alive. In 1995 alone, 120 public functionaries were killed in this manner by MQM terrorists, In Karachi 10% of the people of Pakistan have 70% of its wealth. Total population of Pakistan is 130 million and the; population of Karachi which is even less than 10% of total population have 70% of country’s wealth, and yet Altaf Hussain claims that they are being discriminated against. The truth is that Altaf wants all this wealth for himself. He publicly ordered Mohajirs not to pay taxes as these taxes are used to develop poorer areas of Pakistan. And then he; professes to be the protector of the federation. Altaf knows this and wants to separate so that he has it all to himself, Karachi Municipal Corporation when MQM was in did in power, especially in the light of this strategy to have an inkling of what is this all about. For five years during 1987-92, MQM wielded total control over the billions of rupees of corporations’ funds. But what was the result? Nothing but more destruction. And it couldn’t be otherwise, because if people’s problems have been solved, who will come to listen to fire-spitting orator dilating on then put theme of deprivation and helplessness.

    Altaf Hussain and his compainions are just anti-state, anti-religion, anti-human and ill minded persons who just wish their own supermacy,thay have INDIAN CONNECTIONS, they have SOUTH AFRICAN CONNECTiONS,A little before the army operation of June 92 Javed Largrha and his comrades slipped into India and, in connivance with the Indian authorities, started training camps for subversive activities inside Pakistan. Some Muthaidda activists who were later arrested – among them Naahid Butt’s phony brother, Khalid Taqqi – have narrated before the Islamabad press their tour to India in the company of Langrha, they are just as so CALLED TALIBANS who scater and distributes various anti state bookelets, During 1996 and 1997 the terrorist of MQM somehow again managed to enter in the Palle, the UN headquarter in Geneva, Switzerland and distributed various booklets and pamphlets, against Pakistan. Although during this period, the political wing was part of the Sindh Government. During March 1998 the same people of Muthidda namely Anwar, Arif Ajakiya with the support help and connivance of anti Pakistan NGOs and Indian organizations.

    During the 47th UN Conference which was held at Geneva MQM circulated to the delegates two specially prepared booklets; a 91-page book titled “Pakistan: where the State Kills”, and the 64-page “Pakistan” A Terrorist State”. The concluding lines of the first booklet read,”there is no doubts whatsoever that Mohajirs in Pakistan are subject to the same atrocities as the people in Bosnia, Kashmir and Rwanda”. The second booklet uses excerpts from domestic and foreign material to prove that Pakistan is involved in lawlessness in Kashmir on the one hand, and serves as a base for Islamic terrorists on the other.

    The first time Altaf’s Muthidda stayed away from the government’s annual, February 5 Kashmir Day protest was in 1990. The Kashmiri intifada was a year old then, and the Indian government was already feeling the heat. Relief came from Muthidda on February 6 and 7, when unprecedented violence started in Karachi and continued for several days. Since then the 5th of February has occurred many times, but not a single occasion has seen Altaf’s Muthidda joining the anti-India protest over human rights violations in Kashmir. If anything, it has punished the protesters on each occasion by resorting to terrorist attacks in Karachi and Hhyderabad. For example in such an attack in Liaquatabad killed 10 camp followers of Harkat-ul-Ansaar, a Kashmiri organisation. A pro- Altaf morning newspaper and another sympathetic eveninger put headlines that read, “5 die in Kashmir, 10 in Karachi”.

    This not the end of the butchers story, each and every a looses a life but amazingly MAHAGIR sect is nbot a hope less one, they feel proud on the MARTYRS, is MAHAGIRS ARE doning wrong?????? NO, not at all. If one belives that mahagirs are doing wrong than he is the great supporter of ALTAF HUSSAIN and his non- agenda based, baised agency. If todays MAHAGIRS are wrong than the the all the freedom fighter are wrong, all the right-cause based movements are false, all the motto based atruggles are just fakes, the PALASTINE, BHOSNIA, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN and the creation of OUR beloved homeland PAKITAN will be a flatter.

    THE evil deeds of the so called the CHAIRMAN AND FOUNDER MR.ALTAF HUSSAIN harm each and every body but the pain, griefs and assults which and what MAHAGIR / MOHAJIR / MUHAJIR sect feel and bear are just inconvinclble and beyond the wisdom, the whole sect just laid down but some MAHAGIR / MOHAJIR / MUHAJIR IDEOLGICAL SEVANTS are on the ground and their feets are non- shakable.

    • Long Live MQM and Altaf Hussain…We ourselevs been asking /pushing MQM to get rid of this mutahida thing n fight for freedom from Pakistan……to hell with your racist ,biased comments…Muhajirs will never be accepted in pakistan so to hell with Pakistan

  3. Blackwater and Muttehida’s Hallmarks on Karachi Fire – Bombings

    The London Post Report.
    “There is no difference between Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and MQM because both are sponsored by India and USA. Sawat type operation against MQM’s ‘Clean Shaven Taliban’ who are supporting Blackwater/Xe is a must because people will support. President Zardari, the ‘Putin of Pakistan’ can he do anything of for Karachi or he has become a cuddly toy now?”

    The recent bombings of a religious procession in Karachi and fire bombings of small businesses miles away from the incident reportedly owned by mostly Sunni Tableghie Jamat a non violent religious group, got all the hall marks of ‘private mercenaries’ Blackwater with the support of MQM. According to reports it is physically not possible for any one attending the procession to go miles away, get special fire bombing chemicals and equipment to set fire 300 hundred shops in Bolton Market. It is only possible if one already knows the timing of the bombings and part of the plot. They targeted a Sunni areas where it is almost impossible for an angry ‘Shia protestor’ to reach from the crime scene keeping in the view the distances. So Shia procession was bombed, Sunni business were burnt down and MQM’s fire engines did not arrive. Seems perfect Blackwater Inc style operation?

    Blackwater, MQM’s Plus plan was meticulous and well timed. (a) Timing of the bombing few days before the end of the term of City Government Term. So City Government building burnt down with the record to cover-up corruption? (b) Selection of the venues to be fire bombed (c) Torching of Light House Market predominantly owned by the Pashtuns who did not pay extortion money to the MQM – Score settled, Job done (d) Torching of Bolton Market mostly business are owned by peaceful Sunni Muslims Memon Community. They refused to be relocated outside the city because shops worth millions. High ups of the current regime allegedly President Zardari & Co had interest in the land to develop and build flats and plazas. (Job done) (e) Why MQM leaders both reportedly Shias Haider Abbas Rizvi and Faisal Sabzwari not in the Ashura procession? (f) Why police and rangers did not stop the arsonists and terrorists? (g) Who ordered them not to act? (h) Remote control bomb was planted in an ambulance which might be carrying a head too? (i) Who is Hasham Al-Zafar (central) and what is his role in the bombing and burning of Karachi? (j) What is his relationship with Saleem Shezad alleged master mind of the operation and why he only reports to Altaf Hussain?

    MQM and Blackwater/Xe are US sponsored mafia style mercenary outfits due to their management structure as it is almost the same both groups’ chiefs are out of Pakistan to start with. MQM are the local collaborators of Blackwater/Xe in Pakistan?

    According to sources similar kinds of chemicals and fire bombing equipments have been used in Iraq and Lebanon. Pakistan’s security agencies must look into the links between MQM lead City Government and Blackwater. What kind of assistance they are providing to the mercenaries. City mayor Syed Mustafa Kamal and Governor Sind Dr Ashrat Abad Khan recently visited sensitive institutions of the USA related to protection of US national interests aboard. Why would a mayor of a third world country visit US State Department? Did he inform Pakistani’s foreign ministry? He is on the grooming list. “To his credentials it was Mustafa Kamal who opened the door for the assassins came to kill his ‘uncle’ Azeem Ahmed Tariq, leader of the MQM, as it was an inside job. It sounds like nephew shopped his ‘uncle’ according to a source.

    Altaf Hussain’s MQM and his mafia have caused more economic and human losses to Pakistan by strikes and terrorist activities then three wars with India. After the incident on Monday December 28, 2009, three thousand shops were burnt; one thousand were burnt after looting which caused loss of Rs. 60 billion to Pakistani economy. Armed men stopped fire engines for over three hours according to reports. Why?

    Elements close to MQM were also allegedly involved in the terrorism, arson, and killings after tragic death of Benazir Bhutto on 27th December 2007. Many analysts believe that it was a dry run by the foreign sponsored elements to separate Karachi from the rest of the country. There is another dimension to the burring of some markets with small business. Some people from land mafia were making hostile offers to these old pre partition businesses.

    There are reports that MQM has issued thousands of arms licences to its workers and sympathisers in Karachi and some of the licences might have been issued from other provinces. Disarming of the terrorist groups including MQM in Karachi is necessary to avoid future blackmails.

    It is also reported that armed gunmen did not allow fire engines to leave the fire stations. All the fire engines and security cameras are under the control of City Government run by MQM whose leader Altaf Hussain controls this group in a mafia style. Within minutes he blamed ‘Taliban’ for the bombings. How did he know it was Taliban and not Indian RAW or Blackwater/Xe? Altaf Hussain deliberately tried to make this a sectarian issue in his live TV broadcast on a news channel, which matches the agenda of private mercenaries and India.

    Asia Times Online reported few years ago during Musharraf era, sources says that, “only US diplomatic intervention stopped General Musharraf from taking strong action against the MQM after he received the report on the recent unrest in which the MQM was implicated. Washington indeed has a powerful southern ally in Pakistan’. After September 11, the United States identified even more with the MQM as it was the only party in Pakistan that widely mourned the attacks on the US, openly condemned the Taliban and al-Qaeda, and launched a powerful campaign in support of the US attack on Afghanistan”.

    When President Zardari speak about ‘non state & political actors’, probably he also meant Altaf Hussain too? His long distance proactive and dramatic telephonic speeches are more or less what Lord Nelson said, “If you can’t baffle them with brilliance, dazzle them with bullshit!”. He is never been to Pakistan for more then 15 years but did travel to India on his British passport. Most of the members in mafia style ‘Rabita Committee’ are wanted by Pakistani authorities for heinous crimes. He hides behind this ‘kangaroo committee’.

    A political analyst said, ‘to get ‘poodle status’ in US administration Altaf Hussain exaggerates things beyond imagination. For example, he claimed his supporters in Karachi increased by 10 million in just two years because he claimed to have 20 million supporters in an interview with Edgware Times in November 1998. But in 2001 MQM claimed to have 30 million supporters when MQM send a fax to Reuters on 22 September 2001. “(MQM leader) Altaf Hussain has offered the unconditional support of over 30 million MQM supporters to the U.S. president and the international community,” its London-based international secretariat said in a statement faxed to Reuters on September 22, 2001”.

    According to sources, ‘Altaf group is planning and preparing for armed fight with other groups in Karachi. There might be a plan to divide Karachi on ethnic zones as Rehman Malik mentioned in Dera Ismail Khan? The alleged transfer of money from Karachi to London, Germany, Dubai, South Africa, Canada, and United States is alarming. There reports of increase in the arms sale in Karachi seem serious but what are the authorities doing?

    So what is Altaf Hussain up to that is a crucial question to political and security leadership to think about. His alleged close links with the Indian agency and also acting like a mercenary force getting orders from foreign masters. It is time for the government of Pakistan to approach its friends and allies to have a clear cut answers about the real Agenda in Pakistan? Crimes of Altaf Hussain and his party MQM are so heinous that he wouldn’t dare step in Karachi even the whole period of Musharraf and now Zardari rule?

    Until November 1998 Government of Pakistan was reportedly seeking extradition of Altaf Hussain who was said to be wanted in 50 murders and 150 cases of kidnapping and arson. He said in an interview with a newspaper in 1998, “It is my wish that they take me to trial in a British court then I will tell people nationally and internationally what has been happening in Pakistan.” It was Altaf Hussain and MQM who issued a memo to his workers saying,” if there was war between India and Pakistan, MQM workers will be remain neutral”. Why?

    MQM’s deputy chief organiser of district Thatta and his wife were arrested by the police for trafficking 120 kilos of A class drugs according to a press report on 16th May 2004. Mohamed Ibrahim and his wife Ayesha Soho who is also member of district government were coming from Bolan area of Baluchistan on Jeep number BC 1248 when they were stopped by Dadar Police who discovered 180 kilos of HASH worth millions of from the secret compartments of the jeep. Police has registered a case number 13/2004 report against deputy chief of MQM and his wife for drug trafficking. Area in charge SHO of the area Police confirmed that suspects have confessed they have been also involved in arms trafficking from Kabul and been to Afghanistan three times. Both were sent to Sibi Jail in Baluchistan.

    “MQM has been funded with the drug money apart from the extortion money taken from the top businessmen in the name of support” according to a report published by The Frontier Post on December 25, 1998. The report says, “… What is more alarming is that the Narco dollars have been used for funding the (MQM), a responsible source in the provincial government said. He added that such funding was tantamount to fuelling terrorism.” Is the Narco-terror funding still on?

    By joining as local collaborator of Blackwater in Karachi MQM has provided the eyes and ears on the ground with smart guns. Even if US-India sponsored ‘Pakistani Taliban’ claim responsibility of Karachi Ashura bombings, the chemicals and smart guns used in burnings of the over 6000 small businesses and loss of Rs. 60 billion have all the hallmarks of Blackwater/Xe.

    “There is no difference between Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and MQM because both are sponsored by India and USA. Sawat type operation against MQM’s ‘Clean Shaven Taliban’ who are supporting Blackwater/Xe is a must because people will support. President Zardari, the ‘Putin of Pakistan’ can he do anything of for Karachi or he has become a cuddly toy now?”

  4. Altaf Backstabbing Pakistan

    The London Post Report.
    MQM is backstabbing Pakistan and clearly blackmailing the State? In many countries including Britain mineral resources in Sea, are, land, and ports are in the jurisdictions of the central governments? In almost all countries if someone finds a historical treasure on his land that becomes property of the state not local council?

    Surely business community feel pressures from ‘MQM’s jeans-bike terrorism’ in Karachi but how far they would go to protect their business interests and state interests? There is no excuse for any individual or media group to let itself used against the national interests?

    “Silence is betrayal to the Pakistani Nation now”, said a senior security official. He was talking to me exclusively in the context of MQM’s agenda and Indian triple game with Pakistan. Dr Farooq Sattar leader of the MQM said in ARY TV Channel program on 28th November 2009 with a planted anchor that, “…total control of Port (Gawadar) and all the resources gas…” should be handed over to the province. The program was fully loaded with Indo-US propaganda and lines?

    According to analysts it is not a rocket science to inference that MQM (Muthada Qaumi Movement) and Altaf Hussain are extensions of foreign agencies, and involved in activities to disintegrate the State of Pakistan. On 12th January 2009 MQM tabled a “Provincial Autonomy’ Sine qua non for a Federation, Draft Bill for Constitutional Amendments to Provide Complete Constitutional Autonomy to Constituent Units”. It is quite strange that a party (MQM–A) which bank on the votes of people who migrated and some emigrated later from India and had no roots with any province of Pakistan is allegedly involved in the Indo-US plot of disintegration of Pakistan. So what will happen to those who are not Punjabis, Sindis, Baluchis, Pathans, and Kashmiris living peacefully in Pakistan? Another episode of ‘Biharis – Pakistanis’ living in camps in now Bangladesh?

    It seems that MQM’s minders have the Soviet Model in mind because in modern times international plotters use constitutional loopholes or constitutional amendments to disintegrate countries. For example in dismantling the USSR the international plotters used constitutional provisions which had been placed intentionally. The breakup of the USSR was provided in two of the Articles of the constitution. Article 70 Stated: “Union of the Soviets Republics is a unitary, federal, multinational state, formed on the Free Self Determination of Nations”. Article 72 was more explicit and stated: “Each Union Republic retains the right freely to secede from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics”.

    Interestingly no such mechanism is available in the US Constitution and according to US experts “the constitutional language is sparse’. It is up to the Congress to give meaning to that language”. We all know who control and got the majority in the Congress?

    Altaf Husain is a British Citizen including some of its members of golden circle seemingly don’t care if country disintegrated and what will happen to those people who migrated or pushed to Pakistan came into being due “Two Nation Theory”. Altaf Hussain and MQM do not agree with Pakistan’s stand on Kashmir and also do not recognise the ‘State of Pakistan’ and its legitimacy! Well that is Indian line?

    Altaf Hussain said “Pakistan’s creation was a ‘‘mistake’’ and a ‘‘blunder in the history of mankind’’ reported Sonia Trikha, 12th July 2001, The Indian Express. He further said, “The Two Nation Theory, which argues that Muslims and Hindus are two separate nations which have to live separately and is the basis of the creation of Pakistan “was a farce.”

    “Pakistan a failed State”, said Syed Tariq Mir, Member of the Central Co-ordination Committee, in the SAPRA, conference in Indian in October 2000.

    While sitting in his 40+ staffed MQM International Secretariat in London Altaf Hussain want LOC (Line of Control) in Kashmir should be declared permanent border i.e. forget about 92685 killings, 115877 arrests, 15665 home demolitions, by Indian Security Forces, and 22675 widows and 107218 orphans? His comments on Kashmir are not only unacceptable to Kashmiri community but also deplorable as mindless. More than 600,000 Kashmiris are living in the United Kingdom and do not accept his anti Kashmiri and pro Indian remarks. Altaf Hussain’s views and comments about Kashmir and Pakistan are very offensive and treacherous.

    Altaf Hussain asked for asylum for MQM workers in India! “Some what intrigued by the indirect requests and appeals by visiting Pakistani MQM leader, Mr. Altaf Hussain, to grant political asylum to his (MQM) supporters in India, the Indian Home Ministry has categorically rejected his emotional pleas” wrote famous Indian journalist Arun Rajnath wrote, on 8th November 2004.

    Minister of State for Home Affairs, S. Reghupati told Arun Rajnath, “Such proposals are not viable or practical, and Mr. Hussain himself understands it. If we grant asylum to Pakistani Mohajirs (refugees), why not to Bangladeshis? Then we should also cease our actions of identifying illegal migrants from Bangladesh and we should open our doors for every Mohajir, and give them legal status.” On the one hand Altaf Hussain has taken British citizen on the other hand he is asking Indian Government to grant political asylum to MQM supporters in India. What game is he playing?

    “He (Altaf Hussain) said that while Musharraf is a Mohajir, is ‘‘part and parcel of the Punjabi establishment’’ and thus can never serve the interests of Mohajirs. In this context, he said that Punjab’s partition was a blunder as it only served to divide the Muslim populace of the subcontinent” reported Indian Express on 12th July 2001.

    “No one would be allowed to go scot-free after making anti-Pakistan statements” said Interior Minister Lt. Gen (Rtd) Moinuddin Haider in Lahore on 2nd October 2000. Genera Haider further said that a report has been sought from the Pakistan High Commission in India and action would be taken accordingly. On Tuesday, 3 October 2000, the Pakistani Information Minister, Javed Jabbar said that the Interior ministry was seeking details of the MQM delegation’s visit to India.

    “General Moin Haider a Mohajr later told newsmen that the MQM (members) had travelled to India on diplomatic passports provided by the Indian government and “were playing into the hands of India.” The government now intends to start legal action against the MQM leaders, who are already facing several charges against them and are mostly residing outside the country”, reported Kamal Siddiqi, ‘The Indian Express’ 28th October 2000. The government of Pakistan was reportedly seeking extradition of Altaf Hussain who was said to be wanted in 50 murders and 150 cases of kidnapping and arson.

    Indian officials reportedly said that Altaf Hussain requested Indian Foreign Minister, Natwar Singh that his supporters, the Mohajirs, be granted Long Term Visas (LTV) to live in India. He also requested the Indians to show leniency when considering such cases, especially of the Mohajir community, if they are legally entitled to get the Indian citizenship.

    Indian analysts think Altaf Hussain’s requests reflected a deep sense of insecurity and lack of confidence in the durability of the present Pakistani set up as Mr. Hussain was not only staying in self-imposed exile himself in the UK, but was even talking about a large number of his supporters running away from Pakistan to seek asylum in India, as chances of getting asylum in the US and UK had diminished after 9/11.

    While talking about the internal conditions in Pakistan with Natwar Singh, Altaf Hussain expressed the desire of several Mohajirs to return to India. He told Mr. Singh the second generation of the Mohajir community was now facing the “acrimonious fruit of the 1947 partition”.

    He also recited an Urdu couplet during his interaction with Natwar Singh: ‘Yeh waqt bhi dekha hai taareekh ke safahon ne; Lamhon ne khata ki thi, sadiyon ne sazaa payee’ (Annals of History have witnessed the phenomenon that blunders committed in a short span of time resulted in punishment for centuries)

    Indian Foreign Ministry officials told the ‘South Asia Tribune’ Mr. (Altaf) Hussain had also revealed that a large number of his Mohajir community wanted to return to their roots, and most of them wanted their Indian citizenship back.

    Asked to comment on the subject, the Secretary, of the Minority Cell of Congress Party, Meem Afzal had different views: “The new generation of the Pakistan Mohajirs does not wish to re-unite with India or return to their roots. Their counterparts in India also do not wish their relatives to come back from Pakistan to settle down in India. It is just a matter of a few years and after the end of the second generation or Altaf Hussain’s generation, the ghost of nostalgia will just disappear.”

    Apart from this some of the Mohajirs were declared ‘dead’ in property documents/papers/ records at the time of the partition by other members of the family to protect their property from being taken over by Indian authorities. Those who stayed behind claimed full inheritance. If they or their children return to India, it would gravely complicate matters.

    “The Government of India had virtually kept Altaf Hussain under ‘room-arrest’ the whole day on 6th November, 2004, and nobody was allowed to see him or his party men. Various government officials and security men paid visits to him the whole day. Mr. Hussain and his aides were given cellular phones with special numbers”, wrote Arun Rajnath.

    British passports are issued to thousands non British every year no one ever took their photo with the passport like primary school ‘graduation’ as MQM leader Altaf Hussain did? Some one said, ‘Altaf Hussain will never go to Pakistan’ but he went to India on his British Passport but did not go to Pakistan even when his party is ruling the province and part of federal government. He has been living in Britain since 1992, never voted in Pakistan. He has never worked in the United Kingdom? How did he have properties worth millions as reported in London Weekly? MQM is political party, a mafia or a outsourced business?

    It is time for loyalists to get their acts together because fact of the matter is that all the ingredients, pawns, tools, are in place to break Pakistan but they all should remember that as some one said, “traitors are not fired because they are BURNT!!”.

  5. Muttahida Qaumi Movement Caught Spying on Pakistan.

    The London Post Report.
    MQM caught spying red-handed for foreign nationals and smuggling classified state material outside Pakistan and violated Official Secret Act. According to a report published in the press Waseem Akthar (MNA) and former advisor to the Chief Minister on policing caught with spying devices and equipments. It is reported that MQM members in Karachi were sending recordings of the meetings with President Asif Zaradri, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilliani, Chief Minister, and Interior Minister Rehman Malik. MQM also recoded and smuggled classified proceedings of sensitive meetings at the Rangers Headquarters in Karachi discussing security plan of Karachi most important city of Pakistan. The mode of transfer of the information is not been mentioned but one can assume sending as multi media file (voice recording) via internet or by an airline employee coming to London from Karachi.

    Questions come to mind are why MQM politicians recorded and smuggled sensitive recordings to London:
    a) they are forced to do for third party or parties b) Altaf Hussain’s mistrust on local leaders in Karachi
    c) Paranoia and HPD of Altaf Hussain.?

    According to a mental health expert who examined speeches, videos, dressing, body language, and have met Mr Altaf Hussain in London suggested that, “he might be suffering from Paranoia and Histrionic personality disorder. HPD is defined by the American Psychiatric Association as a personality disorder characterized by a pattern of excessive emotionality and attention-seeking, including an excessive need for approval and inappropriate seductiveness, usually beginning in early adulthood. These individuals are lively, dramatic, enthusiastic, and flirtatious. They may be inappropriately sexually provocative, express strong emotions with an impressionistic style, and be easily influenced by others. Associated features may include egocentrism, self-indulgence, continuous longing for appreciation, feelings that are easily hurt, and persistent manipulative behaviour to achieve their own needs.”

    MQM asked two PPP sitting ministers Mr Zulifqar Mirza and Agha Sirja Durrani to have their mental health examination. Earlier they left a similar message on the cell phone of a senior journalist who exposed MQM’s sinister plots.

    Keeping in view MQM’s profile it is highly likely that they have been sending by internet. It is possible that copies of those audio files kept in the main servers of the internet providers at various locations in the world including Singapore. One can assume that British GCHQ might have intercepted these communications as they monitor all faxes, emails, and communications in and out of the country. It is possible that Indians might have access to the files too as they might have access to the servers. MQM has put Pakistani security at risk and violated the official Pakistan’s Secret Act by spying for foreign nationals based in foreign country.

    It is reported that MQM not only recorded classified proceedings of city’s security plans with security and law enforcement agencies but also smuggled them out of the country violating official Secret Act. MQM was sending classified Pakistani Government secrets to London. Mr Zulifqar Mirza minister responsible for security of the province had the information of MQM spying network and complained to the security agencies who acted swiftly and confiscated spying devices from Mr Waseem Akthar Member National Assembly of Pakistan. Mr Mirza sadly feeling helpless and protested to the President of Pakistan who seemingly protecting MQM beyond imaginations. He demanded ban on the MQM members participating in all sensitive government meetings.

    Loyalties of the MQM leadership including Altaf Hussain were/are always questionable. Few years ago Altaf Hussain called “creation of Pakistan as biggest blunder in the history of mankind while standing on the Indian soil and asked Indians to give political asylum to MQM members’.

  6. Chairman Afaq Ahmed wrote a letter to Chaudhry Nisar Ahmed.

    The Mohajir Qaumi Movement has approached the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for political support to end the “unannounced operation” against the party. The PML-N was approached after the Mohajir Qaumi Movement failed to garner support from the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)-led government.

    Detained MQM Chairman Afaq Ahmed wrote a letter to Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, the opposition leader in the National Assembly, urging the PML-N leadership to condemn atrocities against the Mohajir Qaumi Movement in Karachi and play a role in liberating Karachi from “Mafia-style organisations”.

    Chairman Afaq Ahmed drew the attention of PML-N leadership towards what he referred to as the “massacre” of the residents of Karachi, especially party workers, during the past eight years.

    Neither the PPP nor the Awami National Party (ANP) represent the majority in Karachi and they have nothing to win or lose in the city, he claimed. “During the past two decades, thousands of political and religious leaders and workers, businesspeople and bystanders have been assassinated in cold blood. However, even their FIRs were not registered, despite demands from the affected families,” the chairman Afaq Ahmed said.

    Hundreds of “terrorists belonging to a terrorist outfit” were freed from jails and their cases were abolished in the garb of national reconciliation, allowing them to kill opponents with renewed freedom, he alleged. “Worst of all, not only the Sindh chief minister but even the prime minister of Pakistan are giving certificates of innocence and patriotism to these cruel killers, who have no mercy for young and old, men or women,” The MQM chairman wrote.

    He recalled the incidents of May 12, April 09 and the arson and destruction on Ashura, and claimed that even though CCTV footage clearly identified the killers and assassins, no action was taken against them. “Instead, they were allowed to continue barbarism in Karachi due to their political blackmailing,” he alleged. “I would also urge you (Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan) to launch a move for declaring Karachi as a weapon-free city; otherwise the terrorist Mafia will ruin the economic hub of Pakistan.”

  7. Target killings wreck peace in Karachi.

    Target killings wrecked peace in town as throughout the past week, dozens of citizens, mostly activists and supporters of different political parties, lost their lives in the violent spree.

    Four to five persons, mostly the workers of Mohajir Qaumi Movement were shot dead on a daily basis.

    This incited violence in Lyari, Liaquatabad and other towns of the city and disturbed the already fragile law and order situation. More than 40 people have been killed during the spate of target killings which started with the beginning of the New Year.

    This target killings are a part of a conspiracy to divert the people’s attention from the issue of Ashura blast and arson attack. During investigations, it was found that the people who had burnt the markets in the city had links with Muttehida Qaumi Movement. Despite the statements from the Sindh Police and Interior Ministry that the investigations were complete and the allegations that some workers of political parties were also involved in arson attack. No any action was taken against the security personnel who did not stop the miscreants from burning and destroying public and private property. Not even a single officer was held accountable for the negligence due to which the blast occurred in Ashura procession and expressed their amazement at the fact that the government was not taking the issue seriously.

    Meanwhile, a blast in Saeedabad, at an alleged hideout of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) led to the death of six men. A huge explosion took place on January 8 inside House-804, sector-8B, Saeedabad. A police team immediately rushed towards the place and arrested an injured person, Khalid, son of Habibullah, from the collapsed house. Khalid told the investigators that the house belonged to his friends Ayaz who died along with Arif and others in the explosion. Khalid further revealed that Arif was wearing a suicide jacket. Khalid was then sent to Civil Hospital Karachi for medical treatment and six dead bodies were taken out from the rubble of collapsed house and were sent for post mortem.

    During the search of the debris, police recovered a cache of arms and ammunitions. SHO Saeedabad Sohail Afzal called the bomb disposal squad (BDS) and other rescue teams on the spot for inspection. After the investigation, it was revealed that the deceased were preparing themselves for acts of terrorism but the suicide jacket of one the bombers exploded. A case was registered and investigation was handed over to Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC).

    The police authorities in their statements also stated that the terrorists had planned to ambush on the recruits and staff in Police Training Center Saeedabad. It was also stated that the terrorists had planned to kidnap the federal interior minister.

    Despite the arrest of one suspect from the spot and the recovery of three cell phones which were used by the alleged terrorists, the police have yet not taken any action in this regard.

    Moreover the victims of arson attack after the Ashura blast last month continued to approach the police stations to lodged complaints regarding loss of property. A victim of arson attack after the Ashura blast Mohammed Ameen lodged a complaint at the Kharadar police station claiming that his plastic shop at Ahmed Plaza, Humaira State, Chagla Street, Boulton Market was burnt in the arson attack. A case was registered.

    All the incidents in the city during the past couple of weeks raise some serious questions regarding the ability of the police to control the crime in the city.

  8. international community!!!!!!! MAHAGIRS ARE FIGHTING FOR THEIR SERVIVAL!!!!

    Subject: WHY MAHAGIRS TRANSFORMING THEM SELVES TO URDU-SPEAKING

    It is well believed that you all must be fine

    The cause of this submission is pretty much necessary because the traitors of mahagir nation rapidly transforming the mahagir sect & the mahagir cause horribly.

    It is important to have the know-how about what the mahagir nation really is, it is just because that the anti mahagir lobbies as well as the pro-fasht cheaters used to demolish the sense of honor & the personal rights much straightly during the tenure of past eleven 11 years.

    Mohajirs OR Mahagirs, which means literally “refugee,” are the Urdu-speaking Muslims who fled India after the 1947 partition of the sub-continent and their descendents. But in Islamic point of view “Mahagirs” or “Mohajirs” are only those people or persons or groups which migrated to other or another land only and sonly due to the reason to save the Islamic identity & they ( Mahagirs or Mohajirs) believed that the place where they are migrating is safer for their lives & property. MAHAGREEN-E-MADINA as well as the “HIJRAT-E-MADINA” is a historical event and the creator of Islamic calendar called “HIJRI” as well as the propagation of Islam is greatly influenced by the “HIJRAT”.

    Language or the tongue is not major reason of discrimination between the MAHAGIRS and non-MAHAGIRS. The people who migrated to the land of pure just due to the reason that they were not allowed to live in SUB-CONTINENT independently as per the rights of an individual, it is well said that they were evacuated forcibly by some anti-Islamic, fasht, extremist organizations & groups.

    Although both Urdu and English are official languages, English is the lingua franca of most of the Pakistani elite and government ministries, which are dominated by the Punjab majority (who also speak Punjabi), so language does culturally divide Mohajirs and the Punjabis. Concentrated in the urban areas of Sindh province, they constitute two-thirds of the population of Karachi, Pakistan’s commercial center. Mohajirs are both Shi`a and Sunni Muslims. They are ethnically distinct from the Punjab majority. However, most Mohajirs’ primary identity is not religious but revolves around their “outsider” status. Competition with native Sindhis has defined Mohajirs’ political and economic situation in Pakistan more than any other factor. Sindhis, who have become a minority in their own province, have resented Mohajir political and economic influence in the urban centers. Furthermore, the primary Mohajir political organization was reportedly organized by the Punjabi-supported Zia government to counter the power of the Sindhis Pakistan people’s party. At the same time, Mohajirs have claimed that they are not represented proportionately to their population or to their financial (tax) contributions. The competition between Mohajirs and Sindhis has often escalated to violence, especially in Karachi. Recently, however, these two groups have formed an alliance that focuses discontent on the Punjab-dominated government rather than on each other, though there is no guarantee that this alliance will last.

    It is interesting to note that people thought that Mohajirs are mainly represented by the Muttiheda Qaumi Movement (MQM, ALTAF OR MAHAGIR BUTCHER GROUP) but I on behalf all the Mahagirs deny this point of view from the core of my heart. The MQM (Altaf Or Mahagir Killer Group) generally held responsible for the extreme levels of violence in Karachi, although MQM mahagir butcher group) routinely denies charges of terrorism. Police frequently arrested Muttiheda’s(mahagir butcherers) leaders and members and regularly harassed activists at MQM functions. Throughout 2001 and 2003, there were also reports of torture, extra-judicial killings, and limited force used against MAHAGIR protesters. In 2003, the government of mqm- MAHAGIR butcher group or Muttiheda Qaumi movement shut down Mohajir Qaumi movement (MQM-haqiqi) headquarters BAIT-UL-HAMZA, setting off protests. Mohajir protests have focused on the government repression of Mohajir activists, unemployment, more equitable distribution of funds, and the Punjab military government.

    Mahagirs are truly fully represented by their identity “THE MAHAGIRS” not by any part or any group else. But for getting & gaining their political needs as well as their rights MAHAGIR sect in 1978 created, APMSO ( All Pakistan Mahagir Student Organization) as time passes the sect thought that they will have to fight for their rights nation-wide & internationally with a bigger plate from, in 1986 they termed this plate form as MQM (MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT), which today & always generally known as MQM (MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT) or MQM-HAQIQI .

    Ignorant as well as the brain washed peoples know that as well as the pro-fasht media tells the fake that Mr.Altaf Hussain by own created as well as chaired & struggled for the MAHAGIR IDENTITY in very beginning. But do you know or forgetted the great mahagir leaders as well as the founders like AZEEM AHMED TARIQ (THE MARTYR CHAIRMAIN OF MQM-MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT-HAQIQI) as well as thousands of mahagirs martyrs.

    Now it is notable to know that MAHAGIR ideology is horribly crushed by Mr.Altaf Hussain as he never called him self as “MAHAGIR”. He is the person who just for his own selfish views & perspective lit up the flag of Pakistan.

    In between 1990 and 1992 the whole MAHAGIR nation thought what they have done, they want to come back, and the remedy is only to resolve THE MQM (MAHAGIR QOUMI MOVEMENT). People called this act as faction’s but it is being denied because mahagirs are only MAHAGIR not the Urdu speaking persons in major.

    REAL MQM OR HAQIQI MAHAGIR QUAMI MOVEMENT (MQM-Haqiqi), today only & sonly a single political party who only work for the cause of MAHAGIR under the leadership of the servants of MAHAGIR ideology not as the Mqm(Altaf Or Mahagir Killer Group) Fasht, Pro-Qadiani, Pre-American, Anti-State, Outocrately dominated and self centered & ALSO ONLY FOR SELF PROTECTING agendas.

    Now coming towards the subject that why today mahagirs feel shy in representating themselves as mahagirs, it is only due to the reason that the Mqm(Altaf Or Mahagir Killer Group) has created a nation vide theme that all the mahagirs are terrorists, they are working for the indian agendas and they are raw agents etc etc.

    This is only just for the increment of their self-centered political as well as social life. The MQM (Altaf or Mahagir Killer Group) as well as Mr Altaf Hussain clearly knows that mahagir ideology is the one which will wipe out all the fakes and flatters which he & his companions have created.

    It is again imporant to write as well as to circulate that till today MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT MQM- HAQIQI well & fully conservative, effactive & ideological as it was on the day of 1986& refereshed as 19th of JUNE.

    It is greatly visionary to note down that the cause of MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT MQM- HAQIQI is just to struggle for the rights of suffered MAHAGIR sect MEMBERS, this is not the selfishness as Mr.Altaf Hussain ( the founder, chairman as well as the organiser of MAHAGIR BUTCHER & SELF-CENTERED GANG). The actual agenda of Mr.Altaf Hussain ( the founder, chairman as well as the organiser of MAHAGIR BUTCHER & SELF-CENTERED GANG) & his ccompainions is just to kill as well as to destroy the MAHAGIR SECT & also to distrub the social & economical situation of PAKISTAN.

    Mr.Altaf Hussain ( the founder, chairman as well as the organiser of MAHAGIR BUTCHER & SELF-CENTERED GANG) & his parteners used the theory of MAHAGIR QATIL OR MAHAGIR HI MAQTOOL ( MAHAGIR BUTCHERER & MAHAGIR TO BUTCHER) very effecitvely and is harmly poisioned out the other ethic groups that MAHAGIR NATION is a terrorist one, they only do kilings, demands ransoms, pack borries, atemps rapes etc etc

    Mr.Altaf Hussain ( the founder, chairman as well as the organiser of MAHAGIR BUTCHER & SELF-CENTERED GANG) is the only one who EACH & EVERY time blamed MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT MQM- HAQIQI for the terrorist activties & immoral senes in KARACHI. They are the one who fantcised the PERVAIZ MUSHARRAF outocracy.

    AGAIN & AGAIN I(A student from the most suffered, negalected sect, Mahagir) just want to convey a message that,

    MAHAGIR SECT IS NOT A TERRORIST ONE AS WELL THE “MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT MQM- HAQIQI” DOES NOT EVER WANTS TO HARM OTHER ETHIC OR RELIGIOUS GROUPS, ORGANISATIONS OR EVEN AN INDIVIDUAL PERSON.

    MAHAGIRS ARE PEACE LOVERS——– THEY DOES NOT WANTS TO CREATE PANIC IN SOCIETY
    MAHAGIRS HAVE CARE OF ALL THE ETHICS ——– THEY DOES NOT WANTS TO EXTERMINATE THE MORAL VALUES
    MAHAGIRS HAVE AFFECTION FOR PUNJABIS——– MAHAGIRS ADORES SINDIS ——MAHAGIRS HEARTLY RESPECTS THE PAKTOONS——— MAHAGIRS ESTEEMS THE GREAT BALUCHIS———— MAHAGIRS ARE WITH SARAIKIS,HAZAREWALS,KASHMIREES,HINKOS AND ALL THE DEPRIVED, SUFFERED & NEGLECTED INNOCENTS BELONGINGS OF ALL RACES, CASTES & CREED & ALL WHO ARE ARE NON MAHAGIRS…………………………………………..
    MAHAGIR STANDS WITH ALL THE PEOPLE WHO DOES NOT TRIATES THE MAHAGIR CAUSE………………………………..
    MAHAGIR SECT WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO IGNORE APPROX ONE LAC FIFTEEN THOUSAND KILLINGS……….
    MAHAGIR SECT NEVER FORGET THE KILLERS OF MAHAGIR, PUNJABIS, SINDIS, PAKTOONS, BALUCHIS, SARAIKIS,HAZAREWALS,KASHMIREES,HINKOS INNOCENT PEOPLES……………………………………………………… ……………………..
    MAHAGIRS WILL NEVER OVER LOOK THE GUNRUNNERS!!!!!!!!!!!

    This not the end of the butchers story, amazingly mahagir sect is not a hope less one, they feel proud on the mahagir martyrs & the sacrifices they have given.

    Are mahagirs are doing wrong?????? ARE WE MAHAGIRS ARE TERRORIST?????
    No, not at all. If one believes that mahagirs are doing wrong than he is the great supporter of Altaf Hussain and his non- agenda based, biased agency. If today mahagirs are wrong than the all the freedom fighter are wrong, all the right-cause based movements are false, all the motto based struggles are just fakes, the Palestine, Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan and the creation of our beloved homeland Pakistan will be a flatter.

    Last but not the least let us unite for the great mahagir cause.

    KINDLY CONVEY THE MESSAGE OF PEACE TO ALL IF YOU ARE ABLE TO CIRCULATE THEN DO IT AT THE LEVEL OF YOUR BEST.

  9. Azeem Ahmed Tariq was the Chairman of MQM (Muhajir Qaumi Movement, now called Muthedha Quami Movement). The party was formed to fight for the rights of the Mohajir people in Sindh, who were immigrants from India during the Indo-Pakistan split.

    Tariq was known as an honest politician. He was admired for his strategic and peaceful approach to problem-solving, and his loathing for violence. Regarded as an icon of peace, honesty, and kindness in Pakistani politics, he was also well known for his soft-spoken tone and striking personality. He was a key member of MQM and also known as the brain of MQM.

    Death:

    He is alleged to have been killed by the orders of MQM Chief Altaf Hussain, who is in self-exile in London since 1992. One of the gunmen later caught confessed blindfolded in front of Mr. Tariq’s widowed wife that Altaf Hussain indeed was the one who ordered the killing.

    In addition Mr. Tariq’s family believe that Azeem Tariq confessed to his close family members that his death would be coming soon at by the hands of Altaf Hussain. Although he never spoke against Altaf Hussain in public, which was the core objective the Pakistani Army and the then Government was encouraging to do to oust Altaf Hussain out of power.

    It is believed he did not speak against Altaf due to the fear of his life and his family’s. Altaf loyalists claim that Government Agencies or Haqiqi group (a broke away faction of MQM)murdered him. The evidence for this claim seems rarely plausible mostly due to there can be no proper objective established to argue that Haqiqi or Government would gain anything by the death of Azeem Tariq. Furthermor Haqiqi repeatedly asked Azeem Tariq to lead their faction and become their chairman.

    It is well known fact that towards the end of his years Mr. Tariq was trying to rejoin Haqiqi and Altaf’s group. It was later revealed Mr. Tariq had met up secretly with Army Generals and other officials that showed recorded conversations between Altaf Hussain in London to his associates in Karachi. In one of the conversation Altaf Hussain had stated “Azeem Tariq wants to run the party without me? I will see how he will run the party without me”.

    Upon hearing the attitude of Altaf Hussain from the recorded conversations, he had withdrew involvement in MQM-Altaf. He stopped attending Nine Zero (MQM Headquarter) which destabilized the situation even more. The absence from Nine-Zero had put doubt in the public as the average MQM worker that the party was going to be split again, or that there was internal conflict. Although Mr. Tariq reportedly never had the intentions of creating a party of his own, that is believed to be the reason why Altaf Hussain was involved in his murder.

    In addition Mr. Tariq was gaining much public support and popularity, a possible motive Altaf Hussain may not have wanted him as party Chairman. Mr. Tariq’s supporters have long claimed that ever since his death he was not properly remembered by Altaf’s group. With the exception of yearly death anniversary there is no mention of him and his struggle anywhere on MQM’s website.

    There is rarely any mentioning of Mr. Tariq on interviews with Altaf Hussain, and the new generation of Pakistan do not even know who he was. Mr. Tariq’s loyalists believe this is a deliberate attempt by Altaf Hussain to erase his memory. In the contrary it has been known before the demolishing of Haqiqi headquarter there was a large portrait of Azeem Tariq
    hanging upon entering the building commemorating his life and struggle.

  10. ye saleem shehzad kia ker raha hai wahaan … kis ko kab qatal kerna hai?? kon bhatta nahi de raha..usko ko kab aur kese maarna hai…target killings…wakiloon ko zinda jalana..12 may k waqiaat.

    ek baaat tau sach hei…..in sab anchores mein se ksi ko himmat nahi hai MQM k against bolnay ki…..kyun ??? wajaa saaf zahir hai k MQM is a terrorist organization.

    only Kashif abbasi woh daler insaaan hai jo in ko lalkaartaa hai

  11. The surprise wedding of MQM’s self-exiled supremo, Altaf Hussein, with
    Faiza Gabol, a cousin of former Sindh Assembly speaker, Nabil Gabol, has
    generated almost as much interest in Karachi as did Ms Benazir Bhutto’s
    1987 marriage with Asif Zardari in Sindh.

    Observers also find the marriage politically significant and some have
    already tipped Faiza as the next chairperson of Mutahidda Qaumi
    Movement. “I can become a bridge between the Mohajirs and the Sindhis,”
    Faiza told a cheering crowd on the telephone. The crowd had gathered at
    Nine-Zero, Altaf’s house in Karachi, to hear their exiled leader and his
    new bride.

    Sources say since the murder of Azeem Tariq, the MQM chairman, Altaf
    Hussain has not been able to nominate his successor. Even Dr Imran
    Farooq, the party’s secretary general, who remained underground for over
    five years before surfacing about two years back, has not been elevated
    to that slot. The vice-chairman, Saleem Shehzad, too, has little chance
    of returning to Pakistan and could not be named as the slain Tariq’s
    replacement.

    However, there are other senior leaders like Aftab Sheikh and former
    senator Nasreen Jalil who could be elevated to this slot. Observers
    disagree on the reaction of the rank and file to a possible nomination
    of Faiza as the party’s chairperson. While some say that the cadres
    would accept it, others point to the fact that Faiza may not be
    acceptable to an ethnic party.

    Interestingly, while Faiza’s surname makes her out to be a Sindhi
    Baloch, in reality she is neither. Her parents are Punjabi Maliks and
    originally belong to Sahiwal in central Punjab. Her father, Malik Faisal
    has been an MQM worker and runs a construction business. There is a
    marital connection between the Gabols and Faiza’s family and her
    maternal grandmother was a Gabol.

    Independent observers believe that the political twist that is being
    given to the marriage is an after-thought. It was a normal wedding but
    then someone thought of making political capital out of it, they say.

    According to exclusive information available to TFT Altaf Hussain first
    took the decision to marry Faiza in 1996 during the PPP government.
    However, the matter was postponed because of the murder of Altaf’s
    brother. The moving spirit behind the decision was Altaf’s
    sister-in-law. She thought that he should get married and lead the
    movement. The issue had to be postponed again following the killings of
    many MQM militants during the operation against the party. The matter
    was taken up again after the February 1997 elections and went on until
    the murder of Hakim Said when it had to be postponed yet again because
    of the political turn of the events. The MQM broke away from its
    alliance with the PML and the Jatoi government nearly fell because of
    that.

    Then came the military coup in October 1999. “It has been one thing
    after another,” says an insider. Finally it seems that Altaf, 48,
    decided to go ahead and marry the 28-year-old Faiza. At that moment, it
    appears, it was also decided to give the whole affair a political
    dimension. However, from the way the new bride spoke to the MQM workers,
    it seems she has taken to the world of politics like a duck to water.

    To her advantage, the Gabols seem to accept her. “She is among the Gabol
    family and this is a fact,” said former speaker of the Sindh Assembly,
    Nabil Gabol, while talking to TFT. “She is my cousin and it would be
    naive to disown that fact,” he said. Some observers say Faiza looks all
    set to play a role in politics and may even attract a good audience in
    the interior of Sindh, particularly among Sindhi or non-Mohajir
    communities.

    There are also reports that she is expected to be in Karachi at the time
    of the municipal elections in urban Sindh and would be accorded a
    welcome similar to what would have been given to Altaf Hussain. The MQM
    is planning to gather a million people to receive her and also use the
    occasion for a show of strength by taking over the city.

    TFT has learnt that the news surprised the various intelligence
    agencies, which are now busy collecting details and trying to find out
    the people behind the move. In this regard the name of writer Fatima
    Surraya Bajia’s family has also reportedly emerged. Others instrumental
    in facilitating the marriage include the MQM’s old advisor, Ahmed
    Maqsood Hameedi and former finance advisor, Sardar Ahmed.

    The way the wedding was kept secret also shows that the MQM’s
    organisational strength and the ability to keep things under wraps is
    still intact. Until the performing of the nikah ceremony, the news was
    not leaked from the party headquarters in London. In the past, the MQM
    has shown how secretive the party can be. This was proved when Dr Imran
    Farooq emerged from hiding after six years.

  12. MQM,s first-ever public meeting at Karachi,s Nishtar park on August 8, 1986 , was marked by heavy aerial firing from the; pistols and rifles which the party activists were carrying on them.
    The Evil that men do goes on and on. What goes around comes around

    On 15 April 2007 the Chief of Muttahida Qaumi Movement Mr Altaf Hussain called the threat of ‘Kalashnikov Sharia’ of Islamabad’s Lal Masjid clerics and asserted that Islam did not allow enforcement of Sharia by force and Pakistan had not been created to be turned into a theological state. Very True.

    But how would Mr. Altaf Hussain and MQM justify the following:

    If you would follow the MQM’s history you would see that MQM gained power during the days of General Zia ul Haq. I am chronologically giving the speeches of MQM’s Founder Mr. Altaf Hussain to carefully read the dates of his speeches were the days of General Zia, even the date of birth of MQM was in the year 1978 {First year after General Zia ul Haq imposed the Martial Law}. In those days General Zia and his Military goons only allowed the Jamat-e-Islami to do
    politics and no other political party was allowed any political activities. So how it can be possible that Zia had no knowledge of MQM was coming into being.

    MQM’s first-ever public meeting at Karachi’s Nishtar park on August 8, 1986 , was marked by heavy aerial firing from the; pistols and rifles which the party activists were carrying on them. On that day, windowpanes of a traffic police kiosk opposite Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum were broken, and stones were pelted on petrol pump near Gurumandir. Addressing the rally, Altaf Hussain said: “Karachi is no more mini-Pakistan. We will accept help no matter where it comes from, from east or west, north or south” (dailies Jang, Jasarat and other newspapers of August 9, 1986).

    Two months later, on October 25, 1986, while addressing a press conference at Hyderabad Press Club, Altaf Hussain told the Mohajir youth to “collect arms. If our rights are not given to us, we will use every kind of force”. On October 31, while addressing a public meeting at Hyderabad’s Pakka Qila, he said: “At first we fought for freedom. Now that we have freedom, we are searching for a country” (daily Amn, Nov 1,1986).

    Riots spread to Hyderabad where seven persons were shot dead in two days. Curfew was clamped in both cities to contain violence, and Altaf Hussain alongwith ten others was arrested by he police on November 2 for attempt to murder and rioting. Nine other MQM activists were also taken into custody and firearms recovered from their possession, whereas 63 persons from other parties to the rioting were arrested from Sohrab Goth area. On November 3, ten persons were killed in hand-grenade attacks in Orangi Town area while six others died in street trouble,
    brining the week’s death toll in Karachi to 52.

    On November 18, armed MQM activists fired in the air to disrupt a cricket match in Hyderabad’s Niaz Stadium. On November 21, at the end of a one-day cricket match between Pakistan and West Indies, armed MQM activists blocked all roads leading to Karachi’s National Stadium. 30 persons received bullet wounds in indiscriminate firing in the Liaquatabad. Teen Hatti, Gulbahar, Orangi, Sabzi Mandi, Nazimabad and other areas of the city. A bank was burnt in Liaquatabad,
    while a bus was put on fire on Shahrah-e-Quaideen. One November 22, three buses and an oil tanker were burnt in Landhi, while a branch of the National Bank was ransacked and torched in Liaquatabad.

    Another government bus and a minibus were burnt in Malir and Old Numaish, and several buses were pelted with stones on November 23. On November 24, 11 vehicles were burnt down in New Karachi, Federal B’ Area, Paposhnagar, Gulbahar and Nasirabad. On November 28, armed clashes between MQM activists and the police took place in Hyderabad during which five bank
    branches were damaged and one bus put on fire.

    MQM announced a strike in Karachi on December 9 and asked its followers to remain peaceful. The ‘peaceful’ strike led to the burning of 11 vehicles and seven bank branches. One youngster was killed, and nearly 40 wounded in indiscriminate firing. Demonstrators pelted stones on the police and a bomb was blasted near Liaquatabad police station. The police became helpless
    against protesters” (daily Amn). On December 14, MQM’s secretary general Dr Imran Farooq stated that the situation could be brought under control only if Altaf Hussain and his companions were freed.

    That night, 50 persons lost lives during ghastly manslaughter in Orangi Town . The army was called in and curfew clamped. According to newspapers, the entire Ghetto Township had passed into the hands of a group of klashnikov-weilding youngsters. 70 more persons were killed on December 15.

    According to available statistics, as many as 173 persons were sacrificed on the alter of MQM struggle for rights, while 10 banks, 75 vehicles 24 houses and 20 shops were burnt during the last 153 days of 1986. The battle for Karachi’s so-called rights had begun. On December 20, MQM Chairman Azim Ahmad Tariq demanded justice for Mohajirs, and advised President Zia-ul Haq to issue arms licenses to Mohajirs. After this, we will neither invite the police or the administration to defend us, nor criticize the government on this score” (daily Jang Karachi).

    1987

    With the onset of 1987, lawlessness in Karachi caused curfew for a record number of days. This was also the year when MQM’s anti-press traits began to shape up. The coming days were to expose some of the most fundamental contradictions inherent in the party’s structure and philosophy.

    It was on January 31, when Altaf Hussain made the first most controversial public statement of his career. Addressing a series of welcome receptions in Liaquatabad on that day, he told his audience. “Mohajirs will have no god use for their VCRs, color televisions and other luxuries because these things cannot defend us. They will have to arrange for their own security” (daily Jang, Feb 1, 1987).

    On February 1, in the central committee meeting of Awami National Party at Lahore that was presided by Khan Abdul Wali Khan, a resolution was passed stating that Sindh’s Mohajirs were a part of the larger Sindhi nationality, and that there was no such thing as a Mohajir nationality. ANP was later to become one of MQM’s most trusted allies in national politics.

    On February 19, Altaf Hussain addressed another rally at Burns Road in Karachi. As the party activists started shooting their guns in the air, Altaf Hussain stopped them, saying “save your ammunition”. The audience raised hands to give Altaf the permission to meet anyone, including G.M. Syed. During his address, Altaf said that Sindh could not bear any more population. “There are also Lahore and Faisalabad in the way. These too are Pakistani cities”.

    On February 20 and 21, 16 persons were wounded and one Suzuki van, four motorbikes and a KTC bus were put on fire during rioting in Liaquatabad, Shershah, Federal B’ Area and Sabzi Mandi. Young boys in Liaquatabad pelted stones at the police the whole day.

    On April 5, at the book launching ceremony of Shakil Ahmad Zia, Altaf made a hard hitting speech against Punjab, the Punjabis and the army. “You used force, and the result was that the country broke into two History offers no example of such a large number of troops laying down arms. For those who want to send us back to India, let me say that we will not go alone.
    The whole Pakistan will go to India”. During the same address he issued his first threat to the press. One newspaper is becoming a party against Mohajirs. It should take warning” (daily Amn. April 6, 1987).

    On May 21, a young man was killed when riots broke out in Malir and Khokhrapar in protest over the arrest of some MQM workers. Six vehicles were also burnt in the area.

    In an interview with daily Nawa-e-Waqt’s Irashad Ahmad Arif, published on May 25, 1987, Altaf Hussain said: “Urdu language is Punjab’s problem, not ours. We have never demanded that it should be made the national language”.

    On June 11, while addressing the foundation day celebrations of All-Pakistan Mohajir Students
    Organisation (APMSO), he demanded that Mohajirs be issued with arms licenses. He said the religious parties did nothing for the Mohajir Shaheeds but when a Punjabi died everyone from top issued statements of condemnation to bottom. He also said that anyone who met the Muslim Leaguers or was hand in glove with the government ministers had no place in MQM ranks (dailyAmn, June 12, 1987).

    On June 21, MQM chairman, Azim Ahmad Tariq, stated that the anti-Mohajir policy of daily Jang would be fully resisted . He announced Jang’s boycott, and asked people not to read it. The same evening, dozen-armed persons attacked Jang’s bureau in Hyderabad and put the premises on fire.

    From July 22 to August 30, clashes between MQM and a rival group called Punjabi-Pukhtoon Ittehad (PPI) caused the death of 22 persons, while 300 were wounded. Five policemen also died in riots, while 38 were wounded. Seven KTC buses and a local train also became targets of terrorism. Clashes between the two rival groups had first broken out in April, but arrests on both sides had caused the trouble to temporarily subside.

    On August 4, during an address to MQM’s general workers’ meeting, Altaf Hussain said that the days of the power of the army and the police were numbered. These forces have been bullying us in our airfields, police stations, neighborhoods and streets. They have put the entire Pakistan in their pockets”. He further said on August 14, MQM would announce that mini-Pakistan is not Karachi, but Lahore. “Throw open the gates of Lahore to Afghan refugees on that day, and let them do what they please” (daily Amn, August 5, 1987).

    On August 9, the campaign to collect sacrificial hides began in Karachi and Azim Tariq, in a statement, alleged that the Jamaat workers robbed MQM volunteers of their hides at gunpoint. He condemned this act, and issued a warning to Jamaat. On August 21, Altaf Hussain told a meeting at New Karachi that the problems could no longer be solved without rendering sacrifices, and asked people willing to make sacrifices to give their names. Addressing the Mohajir police trainees, he said that if they are forced to quit their job, they should break the legs of their
    instructor. A time will come when our people will be sitting in police stations he said.

    On August 26, bloody-armed clashes between two groups in Shah Faisal Colony led to the death of nine persons. 80 persons were injured. Eight platoons of police, riding in 32 mobile vans, were present at the scene but could not bring hostilities to an end. Riots also broke out in Hyderabad on August 27. Curfew was clamped which continued unbroken for twelve days, until 4 p.m. on September 7. On August 28, chairman Jiye Sindh Mahaz (JSM), Abdul Wahid Aresar, expressed
    support for the “suppressed” Mohajirs, saying that the army, the police and Punjabi settlers had attacked the Mohajirs as if they were a conquered people (daily Amn, August 29, 1987).

    On October 31, MQM announced a strike to commemorate last year’s killings at Sohrab Goth. During the strike, indiscriminate firing led to the killing of two persons. 85 others were injured while six vehicles, seven shopsand two banks were put on fire. A telephone exchange was burnt in Orangi. Three women, a girl and a man were injured in roadside firing in Liaquatabad and a petrol bomb in Pak Colony injured two police constables. Riots in Kotri and Hyderabad resulted in injuries to DSP and SSP Hyderabad, while offices of the Muslim League and Wapda, a post office, an office of social security, four bank branches and 17 vehicles were set on fire.

    1988

    Rioting, arson and murder continued into January 1998, ten months before the restoration of democracy in the country. On January 10, stabbing incidents and acts of terrorism in Golimar, Liaquatabad, New Karachi Shah Faisal Colony, Banaras, tin Hatti, Chand Bibi Road and
    Rizvia Society led to the killing of five persons, and the injuring of several pedestrians including three journalists. 13 vehicles were also set on fire. The army was called in to control the situation. On January 18, four persons were killed in bloody clashes between MQM and PPI activists. Moreover, 37 houses and shops of the area were put on fire in petrol bomb attacks. Curfew was clamped to disengage the warring factions.

    Nine persons were killed and 60 hurt in riots that engulfed Nazimabad, Liaquatabad and Sohrab Goth on February 4. The property put on fire included 28 houses, several shops, two factories, a petrol pump and several vehicles. Six more people were killed, and two vehicles burnt, in Liaquatabad, Pak Colony and Gulbahar areas on February 8. Curfew continued in different areas of the city. In a statement on February 21, Altaf Hussain said that Jamaat-e-Islami was another name for the drug mafia and the police. He called Jamaat’s Prof. Ghafoor a liar, and accused him of towing Jamaat’s “traditional” policy of hypocrisy (daily Amn, Feb 22, 1988).

    On March 1, the driver of an oil tanker lost control when he came under attack of rioters in Liaquatabad, the vehicle breaking into a house and killing four inmates. This incident was followed by violent protest in which rioters injured 12 policemen including SDM and DSP Liaquatabad. Nine police vans, a minibus and an autorickshaw were damaged. Four more vehicles were put on fire. On March 3, curfew was clamped in Liaquatabad to prevent further trouble. On March 13, in his address to the Karachi bar, Altaf Hussain advised Punjabis and Pukhtoons to go back to their own provinces and demand jobs from their governments.

    On April 30, an accident between a motorbike and a Suzuki van led to incidents of stabbing and firing in Orangi in which four persons were killed. 10 injured a bank branch and several shops burnt. The trouble spread, and by May 9, 31persons had fallen to death in factional fights in Orangi, Nishtar Road, Lighthouse, Pak Colony, Khwaja Ajmer Nagri, Nazimabad and
    elsewhere.

    On May 11, the incidents of stabbing rickshaw drivers in the curfew hit areas started. Six rickshaw drivers were seriously injured. On May 23, MQM activists hiding in Jutland Lines and Shah Faisal colony started attacking policemen and magistrates in order to harass
    them.

    On June 18, riots broke out in Hyderabad in which six persons died and 12 vehicles were destroyed. Two more persons died on the following day inspite of the imposition of curfew.

    July 17, in the riots following attack on Mayor Hyderabad. Aftab Shaikh, eight persons were killed and much damage done to property. The bodies of the victims were sent to Sindh interior. On July 21, women activists of MQM stormed the Latifabad police Station and freed 18 arrested persons. G.M. Syed told newsmen on July 22 that both the government and Altaf Hussain were responsible for the deteriorating law and order situation. Altaf Hussain had become arrogant,inflated, he said. On the following day, Altaf Hussain called on Syed at Haider Manzil and the two leaders made and remove misunderstandings.

    As per Amnesty International Report {1996}:

    The earliest political organization of Mohajirs, the All Pakistan Mohajir Student Organization (APMSO) founded in 1978 by Altaf Hussain, evolved into the MQM in 1984. Ethnic and religious divisions in Sindh were exacerbated during the years General Zia-ul Haq was in
    office (1977 to 1988, of these 1977 to 1985 under martial law) as he used them to suppress and divide democratic opposition to his rule. Ethnic strife between Mohajir and Sindhis who had initially jointly opposed the influx of Punjabis and Pathans into Sindh, rapidly increased in Karachi and Hyderabad from the mid-1980s. The MQM, led by Altaf Hussain, meanwhile
    consolidated its hold on the Mohajir community. In November 1987, the MQM won local body elections in Karachi, Hyderabad and other urban centres in Sindh.

    http://insaf.pk/Media/Videos/tabid/62/article

    I think that sub-continent has not seen a leader like this since Quaid-e-Azam. I truly believe this guy is principled, sincere, presents big ideas previously foreign to the politics and general public of Pakistan and wishes well for all people of Pakistan.

    If he were to have promoted what Kaloo did in Karachi and messed up our city; divided its inhabitants into ethnic groups then some of you (Imran haters) would have perhaps liked it!

    I am baffled that educated people of Karachi can only take an X-cabbie as a leader?

    Kaloo is a parasite and a traitor; for starting the ethnically supercharged political environment in our lovely city Karachi.

    Last thing I want to hear is ignorant people talking about greatest scarify made by people of Karachi in 1947. It was Punjabis coming across the border who got slaughtered; educated Indian Muslims, that now Kaloo seems to tell every one he belongs to, came on the boat. You ignorant, parasitical morons go read your history; you cell phone snatchers!
    Kaloo is in state of paranoia and is an incidental learner; he does not seem to get it right the first time:

    He starts a party MQM (fighting with sindis, pathans, balochies and punjabies) calls it Muhajir movement (I dare to disagree with this term – what about others who migrated and did not speak Urdu? Are they not Muhajir; who gave Kalo the authority to reduce sons and daughters of finest Muslims of India who moved from India to be called Muhajir for rest of their life; even after their sons and daughters have born in Pakistan?).

    Then kaloo learns it’s not flying well with everyone nationally or internationally, kalo tries to fit in and changes with his decree to Mutahida. I truly believe it Mustaqill Quomi Musibet!

    From the 83’s onwards a truly peaceful city and its people have been stuck with the fool! I want to know who killed Azeem Tariq; Hakeem Saeed and other nobilities. Who threatens living nobilities like Edhi? Who reduces a well trained and groomed (Musharaf) brave national hero an army general to an Urdu speaking only general, an ethnic hero?

    I firmly believe that when people can not see beyond their feet they can not get much far, and this is the story of MQM. They are as much to blame of current Pakistani mess as are the Taliban and any other kind of mafia. What was the judgment of the Canadian court?

    We will take Karachi (Pakistan Juggler v) back from kaloo and his thugs. Remember, when you have small dreams you become a small person/nation. To achieve big things you have to dream big and that includes thinking beyond ethnicity.

    MQM is in state of schizophrenia; calling PPP as feudal at one time now sitting in govt. With feudal!

    Calling Military as oppressors and bad etc. has been with them in last dictatorship.– Kaloo needs to makeup his mind; looser with big mouth!

    Today they are again on the wrong side of history; they have complained over the years about not getting fair treatment from anyone in Pakistan. They should have been with the Chief Justice and Judiciary’s freedom cause – and BTW they were you know on the other side of the line. Hell with Kaloo and his screwed up thinking!

    Long live Pakistan; Log live Karachi! Log live Karachi! Log live Karachi!

  16. While Altaf Hussain was admiring the only woman Prime Minister of Pakistan – late Benazir Bhutto during his rally, I was recalling his interview given to Rediff, Mumbai (during his India trip) to its Senior Editor Sheela Bhatt, published on 18th November 2004, responding to her question: “Like you, Benazir Bhutto is also in exile. Do you meet her? Have you overcome your differences?” Mr Hussain said: “Please don’t compare me to her. She is a feudal lady. Her politics is to gain power, power, power. She raised the Taleban. And lives only for power.”

    http://in.rediff.com/news/2004/nov/18inter.htm

  17. On 27th April 2002, Mr Hussain had said about PPP leader, Benazir Bhutto, “In 1988, Sindh unconditionally supported Benazir Bhutto for the premiership. However, she did not fulfill even a single promise and none of the issues of Sindh were resolved. When Benazir became Prime Minister for the second time, thousands of our workers were extrajudicially murdered in fake police encounters to please the establishment. The Government gave the murderous police officers medals and rewards, and the same police officers committed the heinous murder of her brother, Mir Murtaza Bhutto, in broad daylight. Why doesn’t she inform the people of Sindh who killed Mir Murtaza Bhutto? Today she is saying that if she is made the Prime Minister, she would be ready to accept General Musharraf as President for five years.”
    Ref Christain Post 27th April 2002, http://www.westerndefense.org/articles/Pakistan/may02.htm

    The worst moment came on August 12th 2005, while addressing the public meetings simultaneously at Thatta, Dadu, Badin and Shikarpur on telephone from London, Mr Hussain again blasted the PPP leader Benazir Bhutto, “Despite coming into power twice Benazir Bhutto never tried to set up a commission to investigate the case, PPP merely raised the slogan of Jeay Bhutto instead of finding out and making public the circumstances that led to Mr Bhutto’s hanging.” He recalled that one of Mr Bhutto’s two sons, Shahnawaz, was murdered in France and Murtaza was killed in Karachi, but Benazir Bhutto despite being in power, never disclosed the names of those involved in the murder of Murtaza Bhutto.

    “How could a leader who preferred to remain silent on the murder of her brother, could defend the rights of the people of Sindh,” he asked.

    “The People’s Party, instead of unmasking the killers of Mr Bhutto and his sons, joined hands with them, not once but on several occasions,” Mr Hussain charged. http://www.dawn.com/2005/08/12/nat3.htm

    Till 9th October 2007, Altaf Hussain was worst critic of Benazir Bhutto and ready to hinder Benazir’s arrival on 18th Oct 2007 in Karachi , which he controls from London . He was advised by British authorities and finally took assurance from Altaf Hussain that, “he & his Karachi-based party will not hinder Benazir’s return.” This was “because the MQM leadership is based in London the British are taking the lead and the Americans are working with them,” The Independent quoted a western diplomat, as saying. http://www.britainnews.net/story/289203

    I could draw few conclusions out of Mr Hussain’s approach in 2002, 2004, and 2005:

    1. He doesn’t like Benazir Bhutto at all – not even willing to get compared
    2. He feels that Benazir Bhutto is only a power hungry politician
    3. He charged Benazir as the founder of Taliban
    4. He charged Benazir as killer of her own brother and purposely ignorant about killers
    5. He feels that Benazir, a politician who had done nothing for Sind

    And in 2009, same Mr Hussain is:

    1. Die-hard lover of Benazir, rallying in her favour
    2. Delivering 2 hours long speech, attributing her charismatic character
    3. Fully ready to ignore her “Taliban Founder” character
    4. Since last few months warning PPP-led provincial govt against resurgence of Taliban in Karachi

    With this state of Mr kullo’s unclear philosophy, Muhajir community, MQM and PPP workers are all confused; even Nafees Siddiqui has resigned from PPP Sind secretary general position and many of MQM stalwarts are finding ways to distance themselves from Mr kullo’s unstable approaches!

    He starts a party MQM calls it Muhajir movement (I dare to disagree with this term – what about others who migrated and did not speak Urdu? Are they not Muhajir; who gave Kalo the authority to reduce sons and daughters of finest Muslims of India who moved from India to be called Muhair for rest of their life; even after their sons and daughters have born in Pakistan? ).
    Then kaloo learns it’s not flying well with everyone nationally or internationally, kalo tries to fit in and changes with his decree to Mutahida. I truly believe it Mustaqill Quomi Musibet!
    From the 83’s onwards a truly peaceful city and its people have been stuck with the fool! I want to know who killed Azeem Tariq; Hakeem Saeed and other nobilities. Who threatens living nobilities like Edhi? Who reduces a well trained and groomed (Musharaf) brave national hero an army general to an Urdu speaking only general, an ethnic hero?
    I firmly believe that when people can not see beyond their feet they can not get much far, and this is the story of MQM. They are as much to blame of current Pakistani mess as are the Taliban and any other kind of mafia. What was the judgment of the Canadian court?
    We will take Karachi (Pakistan Juggler v) back from kaloo and his thugs. Remember, when you have small dreams you become a small person/nation. To achieve big things you have to dream big and that includes thinking beyond ethnicity.

    MQM is in state of schizophrenia; calling PPP as feudal at one time now sitting in govt. With feudal!
    Calling Military as oppressors and bad etc. has been with them in last dictatorship. – Kaloo needs to makeup his mind; looser with big mouth!

    Long live Pakistan; Log live Karachi!

  19. Where do you live?
    I mean are you in Karachi?
    If you are or even if you are not, can you identify one such plot where pathans have illegally taken qabza?
    Give me a break man…..
    MQM terrorists are all over Karachi and pathans are treated as aliens here. They want to rule Karachi the way they want to and thats FINAL. Hosh kay nakhun lo bhai Kalia ki bakwaas per kaan na dharo.
    We pay 20 RS bhutta in the name car parking wherever we go in Karachi even if its only for 5 minutes. All factory owners/shop keepers/small business owner have to pay monthly bhutta. Kalia has two gori mem sahab maids who give him massage and other services all day and night. Who is paying for him? What is his source of income? Ghareebon ka leader London mein survive kaisay kerta hai? Does he get social security for UK govt or something else?

  20. I’ve lived in Karachi all my life….
    It totally about land….but why is PPP so helpless….OOHH….I remember our president is out on a personal visit…you never heard any other president take a personal visit when 3 of our 4 provinces are burning………

    There may be some Pushtoon who are grabbing land….but the problem is that they are competing with MQM, who feel left out in land grabbing……….and who is MQM to decide who grabs what land.where is the law…meaning the PPP govt…
    If Pushtoon are not allowed to grab, so shouldn’t be MQM………

    where do they get their votes from?…no one votes for them anymore…and they still win by huge margins……….

    why are all the anchor so afraid to put the blame on MQM…..everyone know…but no one confronts them……….
    They are sending Waseem Akhtar to all programs…..guess he is their best LIER….

  21. Disgusted! These guys will go down in history as the bunch of buffoons who were bickering over their fiafdoms while the whole country was burning!

    PML-N: I’m sick of their “humenin aitemad mein nahin liya gaya”? When there is a debate in assemby no one except Ayyaz Amir has the gutts to speak up. They should shut their wimpering afterwards.

    MQM: Supposedly the champions of right and just at the moment. The actual problem is one mafia fighting for its supremacy in its area. The bhatta khor, terrorists, their only problem with Taliban is that they want to be the only black mailers.

    ANP: Headless chickens

    PPP: They don’t have amind of their. That crook with the vicious grin does all the thinking (or whatever he considers thinking)

    Allah help us all.

  22. Let me tell you something, what ever I think or believe is not based on what I heared but what I SEEN.

    I was in Karachi till 1987, in Shah Faisal Colony 5, and I have seen MQM Terrorists very closely. I have seen them killing people, buring them alive, whole families, businesses of innocent people, I have seen them marking people giving them ultimatum to leave, and let me specifically mentioned our HOME was marked as well, and we have to run for our life specially when my father was on final stages of Cancer and was getting treatment in Karachi. I have seen their meetings in Khokhar Club Shah Faisal Colony, I have seen some of very insiders of MQM very closely as they were living around where I was living, now they are all living abroad because they can’t come back for same reason your Altaf Bhai don’t want to come to Pakistan. I know the dark face of MQM.

    Let me tell you I have also seen several MQM workers here in London as I live here and I do come across many MQM Bhais and all the stories they have to tell, they tell me nothing new but what I already know about them, they never surprised me.

    Now to other part of your replies where you are saying MQM is this and that, MQM is actually an Armed Party based on Racism, full of killers and criminals, and many in Karachi faced MQM’s TERROR, they are in power by using gun power, and nothing else.

    You also mentioned when MQM was in power, yes when ever MQM is part of Govt only then their is some comparative peace in them as they got a bone in mouth, otherwise when ever they are out of power there is violence all around. Did I mentioned torture cells of MQM operating in Karachi?

    As far as Altaf not visiting to Pakistan, everyone who brother out of country is for a good sake i.e., to support his family and loved one, not is the case with Altaf, who is on Indian payroll and order killing of several thousands families just because of their language. MQM act like a Mafia in Pakistan.

    And I pray along with those thousands of families who lost their brothers and fathers, sons and other relatives in hands of MQM.

    MQM was and is a Terrorist Mafia Organization, and those who are on their payroll are those who are doing propaganda. If MQM wasn’t a terrorist Organization why it was declared as a terrorist organization by Canadian court ? proof of which is posted in this thread if you care to read.

    MQM was and is full of killers and they rule by gun power, what happened in recent election in Karachi is an open truth if anyone saying MQM got votes how come MQM got 90%+ votes whereas people I know (I visit every next year Karachi) said not a single word in favor of MQM ?

    Fact is MQM is not only a Mafia ruling Karachi using Terror they are also working for M5, Raw and CIA not in favor of Pakistan but to support their objectives. MQM came to existence because of a dictator (Zia) and they supported another dictator for another 8 years. That is more than half of MQM history, rest of half is when they were exposed by democartic forces of Pakistan and they created unrest in Karachi.

    Did I mentioned what MQM workers told me about Pakistan ? forget about Workers, your Altaf said Pakistan’s Creation was a biggest blunder. (again video is in this thread). MQM workers openly says Karachi is ours (MQMs), if so, Karachi is of MQMs, does that mean Karachi is not of Pakistanies ? there is no National approach in MQM what so ever.

    What MQM is doing on name of Al-Khidmat Trust and what they are doing with Edhi Foundation ? Now bhata turned into charity ? and even though I apprciate, why Edhi is getting so much hard time ? why so many killings (planned killings) only in Karachi ? and interesting of key people of oppositions most of time ? Hakim Mohammad Saeed ? Killing of Key Ulmas 2 and half years ago ?

    Why MQM divided into two and what was that violence after division of MQM ?

    To my best knowledge and understanding MQM never was and ever will be a peaceful movement, because MQM rooted from hate, and violence, and spread through TERROR and if foundation of a party is so wrong, no matters what you do or say, it will remain what it is.

    But what a shame, they don’t have a courage to say SORRY to thousands they killed. I pitty on MQM and those favor them. May Allah swt given them wisdom and show them some humanity.

  23. Altaf ne jitnay maasoumon ke marwaya hai na.. woh kahin bhi Allah se mehfooz nahi ho sakta.
    MQM ka qaaid khud Karachi se darta hai.. haha.
    Imran Khan ki baat to bilkul sahi thi…
    Zardari jaisa banda Pakistan me rah sakta hai, to Altaf ko kia problem hai… us ne to itnay saaray logoun ko Karachi barbaad karnay pe lagaya hua hai, us ko koi kia kar le gaa.
    England wohi mulk hai jis ne abhi America ki Pak-Afghan war stragety ki himaayat ki hai, aur Altaf apnay aap ko wahan chupa ke betha hai… logoun ko telephone pe khitaab kar ke bewoqoof bana raha hai,

  25. FACT SHEET ABOUT MQM:

    So it is a duty of government to tell the people what MQM stands for, whether it is a political group or a gang of terrorists, who are these deserting rats, what do they want, how do they treat places like Kashmir, Pakistan and Karachi, why do they kill, why do they promise to send dead bodies, who do they serve by heightening linguistic feelings, why do they hit transformers and leave people to roast in heat, why do they burn transport, why do they target personnel of law enforcing agencies why do they torture common people, why do they pump bullets into public servants, why have their bullets torn away life from SHOs Bahadur Ali and Imdad Khatian, DSP Bashir Ahmed Noorani (from Sukkur), five relatives of DSP Nisar Khwaja, DSP Tanoli, SDM Mohammad Nawaz Khushk, Journalist Mohammad Salahuddin, Azim Ahmad Tariq, Zohair Akram Nadeem Pir Pagaro?s son-in-law, Salim Malik, KESC Chairman Malik Shahid Hamid??? And how finally a renowned scholar, Chairman Hamdard Foundation and Ex-governor Sindh Hakim Mohammad Saeed?

    The government of the federation is under obligation to explain also to the people who robbed their laughter, who turned the cosmopolitan of Karachi city, its citizens, its hospitals, parks, roads and avenues, its storage houses, police stations and assembly houses into exclusive property; who tempted the citizens to sell off all means of recreation and buy guards with the money; who were the people who never started a single development project in Karachi but did every thing to destroy the KM.C by controlling it during 1987-92 and the provincial government by controlling it during 1990-92?

  26. Terrorism in Karachi on Hitler?s Footsteps

    Just as the world knows all about the nuclear holocaust which destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, so does it know about Hitler?s cruelty which left an entire nation paralyzed and divided. So when government says that the Karachi problem is the problem of the whole country, and that we are fighting the battle for Pakistan in Karachi, they seek to explain the simple logic that the wiles of Fascist Hitler brought destruction not only on the German nation, but resulted in the killing of 55 million people all over the world. Just as MQM has wrought havoc on not only the people of Karachi but the nation at large.

    Now we would take the opportunity to see it is really in bad taste to compare Altaf Hussain with Hitler, as some self-preferred terrorists feel. This would depend on the extent to which Altaf Hussain has followed the fascist declarations canonized by Hitler while founding his party.

  27. Hitler?s autobiography, “Mein Kampf” was translated in Urdu by Maulvi Ibrahim Ali Chishti and printed by Lahore?s Lion Press in two volumes (1950 and 1955). In his foreword, the Maulvi stated three distinguishing features of the system which Hitler evolved: use of terrorism to achieve ones? aims, preference of racism over nationalism as the basic political creed, and use of people?s power to gain political ascendancy and then discard them. Hitler-power was achieved when they announced the Nazi party?s manifesto at a public meeting in 1920. The main features of this manifesto which are given in the following, reflect on his personality and bent of mind more vividly than any other historical document.

    These are

    1. Nation?s destinies are charted by the minority, not the majority,
    2. Intellectuals are misguided individuals, suffering from scientific indigestion.
    3. Democracy brings anarchy and chaos.
    4. Our creed is true, and only this creed is true.
    5. Destruction fuelled by violent demagoguery is necessary.
    6. The leader requires disciples who oppress others while pretending to protect them from oppression ,
    7. Illiterates and na?ve youngsters are more suitable for the movement
    8. The disciple should be trained to act, not ask questions
    9. We are not the slaves of public opinion, but its leaders
    10. Newspapers should not be allowed to ride popular will
    11. Reject everything that the opponents utter
    12. Minimum writing, maximum speaking
    13. Street trouble is the life blood of the movement
    14. Public demonstrations should not be peaceful
    15. Deserters should face death
    16. Kill big traitors before small ones
    17. Divide and rule
    18. A constitution cannot correct political weaknesses
    19. Use force in preaching
    20. 80 million Germans ought to grow to 250 million in 100 years
    21. 12,000 traitors should be put to sword

  28. We invite everyone here to go over these points and take out those, which haven?t used by Altaf Hussain and his party in their operations at one time or another. Go briefly over the points once again. The negatives for a terrorist include democracy knowledge and learning, newspapers, children,; public debate and peaceful activity. The positives are illiteracy, blind following, the infallible saint, lawlessness, street trouble, minority decisions, rejection of the opposition, and increase in population.

    The conspiracy to spread terrorism in Karachi is a pure Hitlerian strategy which consists in occupying whatever belongs to the people, and then repeatedly dispel the impression that such an occupation has taken place; keep repeating that we are on the side of justice, and that the rest of the world consists of liars; and that so-and-so is opposed to our ideas because he is the enemy of our people. MQM ostensibly seeks to be a civil rights movement, but it conveniently ignores that a civil rights movement needs be civil first.

    Review the performance of Karachi Municipal Corporation when MQM was in did in power, especially in the light of this strategy to have an inkling of what is this all about. For five years during 1987-92, MQM wielded total control over the billions of rupees of corporations? funds. But what was the result? Nothing but more destruction. And it couldn?t be otherwise, because if people?s problems have been solved, who will come to listen to fire-spitting orator dilating on then put theme of deprivation and helplessness.

    The largest agency of urban development put at their disposal for five long years, and all we got in return was the same chain of accusations, complaints of repression, of powerlessness, of being cheated; appeals to the people to use in revolt, listen to no one but the MQM as these Chaudhries, Waderas and Sardars were out to fleece every penny of what Appealing to the Army for Justice while attacking the same institution belonged to Karachi?s people.

  29. While the civic problems went from bad to worse the “nation” was being fed on slogans like “death to Quaid?s traitors “homeland or coffin”, “freedom or death”. And just as the civic authority dissolved into a party fief meant for fund raising and ceremonial purposes, the specter of the leader rose as a symbol of Pirdom, sacrosanct and therefore in fallible, at the same time attacking every national institution, every sense of hope creaking at the hinges from internal tension, the party split into two in June 1992, one group identified as MQM Haqiqi and the other called MQM/Haqprast and now Muthaidda. Later a third group emerged under the leadership of the former party chairman, Azim Ahmed Tariq, and a former member of the party?s central cabinet, S.M. Tariq. Both Muthaidda activists subsequently assassinated these leaders and their murder blamed on official agencies.

    The first to fall was Azim Ahmed Tariq who was eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf who were directly received order from their master through phone calls. But Muthaidda ostensibly mourned his death and held various official agencies as responsible for it. But confusion subsided when the former chief minister of Sindh, Muzaffar Hussain Shah, declared on the floor of Sindh Assembly, Azim Tariq was killed by Hashamuz Zafar and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui both activists of Muthaidda

  30. S.M. Tariq’s murder came in the immediate aftermath of the arrest of Hashamuz Zafar by the law enforcing agencies. He was a close aide of Azim Tariq, and a potential witness in his murder case. Muthaidda again held the agencies responsible for the murder, and mourned his death amidst touching statements. During 1992-98 almost 450 central leaders and supporter of MQM (H) were killed and eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf Hussain including Mansoor Ahmed Khan (Deputy General Secretary of MQM (H), Sardar Ahmed (Finance Secretary of MQM (H) Rehan Umar Farooqi (Ex Member National Assembly) and many others.

    Everyone knows that Altaf Hussain has shown himself to be an extremely impulsive man who can alter a “principled” stand sooner than one can say Jack Robinson, and often for no obvious reason, unless one takes into account his well known tendency for terrorism as a tool of political black mail. A look at the composition of his dialogue team over the last many years demonstrates this fact. Just because many of the members of this team could not contrive excuses for terrorism on the dialogue table, they were frequently discarded in favour of others. And saw the replacement of M.A. Jalil with Dr Farooq Sattar, followed by Senator Ashtiaq Azhar and more recently Ajmal Dehlavi and company. The same goes for MQM’s assembly members, who are changed every time the elections are held so that they wouldn’t take roots among the masses and carve out an exclusive niche for their own leadership.

  31. ANTI-STATE ACTIVITES OF MQM

    MQM killed thousands of innocent persons including government functionaries. Its first major situational action against political rivals comes in Pakistan Steel Mills in 1990 when a number of men kidnapped from there. These men were taken to torture cells in Landhi and Korangi. Since them, torture and murder of army officers, navy functionaries and a whole range of other professional and non-professional men and women has become a routine. Hundreds and thousands of innocent citizens were eliminated by the terrorists of MQM affair in Karachi. Among them are eminent citizens, politicians and law-enforcing personal, high government officials, writers like Salahuddin and finally the former Governor of Sindh, internationally renowned scholar and social worker Hakim Saeed.

    The method is simple. Terrorists chose a government servant and mark his residence. They watch his movements and his routines. Then, when orders are issued to “resurrect the movement and do his case”, the main is whisked away from a convenient spot. The kidnapped is invariably tortured, then killed and his body stuffed in a gunny bag to the dumped on a street in the quite of the night. The movement of Haqparasti (truth worship) is thus kept alive. In 1995 alone, 120 public functionaries were killed in this manner by MQM terrorists.

  32. The question is, if MQM has not been engaged in killing government officials, policemen and members of other ethno-linguistic groups, what has it been doing all these years? A group which is armed to it tee hand given to a foreign induced philosophy of separatism cannot do much else. The whole country knows that it started the gory tradition of killing innocent, unarmed civilians in a bid to cause a wedge in the nation.

    The people of Pakistan want MQM to renounce its anti-state operations, but it is understandably a hard thing for the group to do. Its personality and holding power depend on men like Farooq Dada, Asif Zaidi, Ali Mota and the like. Regrettably these men can in one lifetime kill 60 to 65 government officials for the sake of Muthhida glory, but they cannot turn it into a formation fit for human politics.

    The whole world knows that Altaf during a telephonic address instigated his audience to chant the slogan “aadha tumhara aadha hamara” (half & Sindh for you, half for us) and this slogan obviously reminds us about another slogan which was raised some quarter century ago” Udhr Tum Ider Hum” and the horrible consequences it bought in a form of Dahka Fall. At the end of the meeting a prayer was held which said, “makes us the sons of our soil, O Lord,” then there is Rana Safder Ali Khan?s threat in the Sindh Assembly, “we will demand the deployment of UN troops in Sindh”, or Ajmal Dehlavi?s threat, “give us our rights otherwise India, or some other country may intervene.” One also has not forgotten the “break Pakistan” slogan raised by mourners during a funeral procession in February 1994.

  33. INDIAN CONNECTION OF MQM:

    The government has repeatedly called upon Muthaidda to close its training camps in India and call back Javed Langhra and others to the country. Altaf and his party responded that leveling such an allegation against a party was not only a crime, it was violate of the security of the country.

    According to Altaf and his Muthaidda there are no training camps in India but Javed Langrha lives there because it is a democratic country. It also says that thousands of other workers went abroad to escape persecution. It does not say how many, but if we take it at 20,000 who paid for their fare? They must have spent well over a billion rupees.

    But here money is not the issue (Altaf’s Muthaidda was a multi billion-rupee organisation, having robbed with total impunity the richest city of Pakistan for more than a decade. The issue is, did thousands really leave the country in 1992? All we have heard so far is a few names: Altaf Hussain, his 12 body guards, Salim Shahzad, Anwar Khan, Javed Langrha Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Ishratul Ebad and about hundred others. There may be hundred more phony asylum seekers in the west, using MQM’s cover. To say that they are in thousands is to say that th

  34. But here money is not the issue (Altaf’s Muthaidda was a multi billion-rupee organisation, having robbed with total impunity the richest city of Pakistan for more than a decade. The issue is, did thousands really leave the country in 1992? All we have heard so far is a few names: Altaf Hussain, his 12 body guards, Salim Shahzad, Anwar Khan, Javed Langrha Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Ishratul Ebad and about hundred others. There may be hundred more phony asylum seekers in the west, using MQM’s cover. To say that they are in thousands is to say that there are 22 million Mohajirs in Sindh. It is Master Goebbles at his dirty work again.

  35. The government has repeatedly referred to training camps in India on the basis of two known factors. Firstly, the types of weapons – Klashnikovs, rocket launchers and hand grenades that are used by MQM terrorists are in use in three zones of this region; Tamil Nadu, Karachi and Afghanistan. All the three zones are divided between different gangsters and warlords, who are spilling blood to strengthen the irrespective bargaining positions. Secondly, enough circumstantial evidence exists to suggest that MQM is doing India an overt favour by harming the cause of Pakistan on every possible platform.

    Since 1990, every year Karachi has religiously plunged into an orgy of death and violence at or about February 5, the day that the government of Pakistan observes as the annual black day for Kashmir. MQM’s; peak violent action has also coincided with other Kashmir related issues, such as the official Pakistani protest over the burning of Charar Sharif or during the earlier hold out at Dargah Hazrat Bal. Towing this; policy, MQM has brought the issue of Karachi at par with that of Kashmir in the international media. Although the issue of Kashmir involves a deeper sense of loss, strongly rooted in the valley’s historical consciousness, tying it up with a predominantly criminalised Karachi has nevertheless been a victory of sorts for India.

  36. Moreover, Javed Langhra’s access to the personal company of Indian minister of interior and other high-ranking officials is a matter of concern for the government of Pakistan. Not very long ago, the former Indian: Prime Minster, V.P. Singh, had stated that India could not keep quiet over the situation in Karachi any longer. Altaf Hussain’s appeals to Indian Muslims to hold protest rallies against Pakistan, are also fresh in our memory. Then there is the incident of(UNHRC) Geneva Conference in which MQM’s New York based leader Anwar Khan, delivered a speech and took sides, with the Indian delegation against Pakistan. Altaf Hussain himself ridiculed the two- nation theory and spoke derisively about Pakistan Army in an interview with the Indian fortnightly magazine, India Today.

    He has frequently been clamoring to the world opinion leaders to forget about Bosnia and Kashmir, and to watch Karachi instead. In the back ground of all these facts, the extra coverage which MQM gets at the Indian radio and TV media is a further source of concern to the Pakistani government. Apart from enlisting India’s support, Altaf has repeatedly sold Karachi to the west as another Hong Kong – all that needs be done is repeat of history when the Hong Kong was taken away by the British.

    Altaf Hussain was also asked by the government to condemn Indian excesses against Kashmiris, desist from portraying Karachi (which is a part of Pakistan). At par with Kashmir in international circles and stop its activities in Karachi and abroad which are aimed at diverting the world’s attention from Kashmir.

  37. Altaf Hussain established its Indian connection probably a little before 1990. According to some observers, previously this connection worked through the mediation of G.M. Syed’s workers. But direct contacts were established once Altaf (because of criminal charges, which he refuses, to face) departed from Pakistan and took permanent abode in London

    .

    A little before the army operation of June 92 Javed Largrha and his comrades slipped into India and, in connivance with the Indian authorities, started training camps for subversive activities inside Pakistan. Some Muthaidda activists who were later arrested – among them Naahid Butt’s phony brother, Khalid Taqqi – have narrated before the Islamabad press their tour to India in the company of Langrha.

    The government of Pakistan has a real cause of concern here. Langrah is a fugitive from the law. His stay in India makes him susceptible to Indian pressure to work against Pakistan. India competes with Pakistan in the international market for textile, leather goods, rice cotton and other commodities. Obviously the Indians will not get on Pakistani ships to destroy their consignment

    They will rather avail the services of Pakistan’s gun totting “political” activists to cripple its economy. It is not surprising, therefore, that Altaf Hussain continues to dish out strike calls in protest over the arrest or killing of criminals who have each killed anything from 20 to 50 persons in a brief career of between two to four years. The economic fallout of these strikes inevitably goes to favour India.

  38. The first time Altaf’s Muthidda stayed away from the government’s annual, February 5 Kashmir Day protest was in 1990. The Kashmiri intifada was a year old then, and the Indian government was already feeling the heat. Relief came from Muthidda on February 6 and 7, when unprecedented violence started in Karachi and continued for several days. Since then the 5th of February has occurred many times, but not a single occasion has seen Altaf’s Muthidda joining the anti-India protest over human rights violations in Kashmir. If anything, it has punished the protesters on each occasion by resorting to terrorist attacks in Karachi and Hhyderabad. For example in such an attack in Liaquatabad killed 10 camp followers of Harkat-ul-Ansaar, a Kashmiri organisation. A pro- Altaf morning newspaper and another sympathetic eveninger put headlines that read, “5 die in Kashmir, 10 in Karachi”.

  39. ANTI MEDIA ACTIVITES OF MQM:

    ( Recently attack on Geo anf Ajj TV

    Altaf and his MQM were asked by the government to renounce its policy of press censorship, and publicly declare that it will not use threats and direct or indirect pressure to influence the print media.

    Altaf’s MQM is perhaps the first “political ” party in the world which clamped an across the board censorship on newspapers and kept breathing down the editor neck for more than four years. Hitler had said, “newspapers should not be allowed to ride popular will”. Altaf and MQM followed this dictum to a tee. The code of censorship, which MQM designed under the able guidance of Altaf Hussain for the newspapers of Karachi, was impeccably complete. “Important” news items and photographs, their size, length and their exact placement on specified pages (mostly front page) was dictated to the city’s newsrooms from Nine Zero. Anything, which Altaf did not want published, could not see the light of the day.

  40. MQM’s terrorism against the press took its early shape in 1985. By 1987 it had gradually made its presence felt in the newsrooms. Any departure from Nine – Zero’s guidelines brought down the Pir’s wrath on the reporter, the sub-editor, the editor, the publisher the owner – anyone in any way connected with the production of that particular section of the newspaper. Inadvertent violations sent shivers through the entire newspaper establishment.

    Daily Jang, being the largest circulated newspaper of the country, tried to break the shackles in earlier days of the Pir (Altaf Hussain) and he threatened that paper “one paper is becoming a party against “Mohajirs”, it should take warning (daily Amn April 6, 1987). The Pir’s disciples ultimately in Hyderabad lit up 30,000 copies of the paper on June 21, 1987. Thousands of copies more were burnt in Karachi. On June 24, Jang columnist, Nizam Siddiqui, wrote, “Altaf Hussain demands that Jang should; publish his statements and photographs in places proposed by him, and that his opponents views should not be brought into print. No political party or leader has made such a demand in 47 years.”

    Altaf’s reactions have always been aggressive and devoid of any regard for ethics. Ask about who persecuted Maulana Salahuddin, editor weekly Takbir, burnt his house, burnt Takbir copies, tried to prevent Takbirs'; publication from Karachi, and when the Maulana refused to budge, killed him? And every one will say MQM.

    An evening newspaper brought out a supplement on the assassination of some opponent of MQM, in which it called him a “Shaheed”. The paper had to suspend its publication for several days, and the editor attended hearings at Nine-zero day in and day out. He was finally given the license to live, but on a price. Until today, this evening newspaper is acting as an official spokesman of MQM.

  41. Open Letter from Salman Ahmed
    May 29, 2007

    Altaf Hussain and his murderering accomplices deserve to be tried for
    their crimes against Pakistan. I’ve been threatened by them on many
    occasions in the past 15 years. One particular time was when I refused
    to perform at Altaf’s marriage function in Karachi and London where
    all the other artists, including Ali Azmat, were browbeaten to go and
    perform for his “majesty’s” pleasure. The man who threatened me was
    called “khalid bin walid” who was a known terrorist and a murderer.He
    told me that Altaf Hussain, “his Quaid” had especially demanded me to
    appear with Junoon to perform at their ceremony function.

    When I refused to comply he called up my staff and my sound company
    guy, Ishtiaq Ahmed, and threatened them with dire consequences if I
    didnt go. Ishtiaq pleaded with me to go and perform or risk being
    killed,and all this OVER REFUSING TO PLAY AT A MARRIAGE FUNCTION!

    As fate would have it,I’m still alive, but Mr.Walid was killed a
    few weeks later in a shootout in Karachi with Haqiqi activists.(Those
    who live by the sword die by the sword).

    In 1992,they also threatened to abduct my wife and children if I didnt
    show up at an MQM rally and welcome their leader Azim Tariq. I still
    live happily with respect and dignity but alas Azim Tariq was also
    was killed in a mob feud. My friends, Junaid Jamshed and Sajid Hassan
    worried for my safety told me that I’m putting my family at risk
    everytime I refuse to obey these goons and on every occasion I told
    him that if I give into their terror tactics I can not call myself a
    Muslim.

    Allah is our protector and He has commanded us to stand up against
    injustice and that is why I applaud Imran Khan for speaking the truth
    about Altaf Hussain and his goon squad. I think the time has come for
    all Pakistanis to stand up and be counted. Do you want to live as a
    citizen of a country with dignity and all your rights protected or as
    a slave in someone’s fiefdom?

    “Baad-e-mukhalif sey na ghabra aye uqaab
    yeh to chalti hai terey oonchi uraan kay liye” -Iqbal

    this wind only blows to help you fly higher)

  42. ON WHO KILLED BENAZIR ?

    Taliban would not be motivated to kill Benazir.

    Musharraf is their bigger enemy who assisted the americans against them with tremendous logistical support.

    Her brother was killed in Karachi by the MQM. They are the hardened killers.

    They are bonded to Musharraf by the Mohajir blood.

    Musharraf is a stooge of America. His only son in there. He trusts them. He is being tutored personally by Negroponte. CIA provides free consulting to him and Negroponte personally tutors him. He went there to tutor Musharraf on how to handle the JUDICIARY in a machiavellian fashion, by inflicting a mortal disabling wound.

    The zionists and hindu are quietly watching because mush and MQM is doing their job and you dont interfere when your enemy is destroying itself.

    This is the way to handle an islamic nuclear country by making it crumble from inside by putting a militant minority of biharis (where were back-stabbers to the bengalis) like the Kallu Mush on top of the majority in the country. Being cornered, they will heartily and mightily fight and destroy each other with wanton and abandon.

    Musharraf and MQM believes that it is their historic opportunity to setup a Mohajir Caliphate.

  43. In an overnight change of heart, Pakistan’s controversial establishment dumped its “blue-eyed” boys, Afaq Ahmed and Aamir Khan, after almost 10 years and mended its fences with the MQM (Muttahida) led by a man it once dubbed a “traitor.” The shift owed to the establishment’s determination to instal Zafarullah Jamali as Prime Minister, for which the Muttahida’s support was essential, and the move paid the required dividends in the short term.

    However, the romance fizzled shortly after Jamali’s investiture as PM. The Muttahida withdrew its support to the government on account of what it saw as a betrayal by the military government. Reportedly, just one week after giving the Muttahida the green signal to enter the ‘No Go’ Areas like Landhi, Korangi, Malir, Lines Area, Khokrapar and some other parts of District East, hitherto controlled by the MQM (Mohajir), the latter’s strong-arm tactics forced the Muttahida to pull out its activists, and once again shut its offices in these areas.

  44. Soon thereafter, the Muttahida announced the withdrawal of its support to the Jamali-led PML-Q and its decision to sit in the opposition in the Sindh Assembly.

    Sources said that the MQM (Muttahida) had asked that Afaq, Aamir and other rival mohajir leaders be sent abroad, demanded guarantees of complete protection for its own activists, and a pledge from the establishment that it would arrest scores of its political rivals, in exchange for the party’s support. However, given the Muttahida’s latest stance it is obvious that its demands were not met.

    Afaq Ahmed and Aamir Khan, two former joint secretaries of the Altaf-led Mohajir Qaumi Movement, were expelled from the party in 1991 along with around 100 other activists when they instigated a mini-revolt in the party. It may be recalled that both leaders, who were at the time controlling party sectors in Landhi, Korangi and Liaquatabad, were expelled, while they were in the United States.

    According to sources, the renegades, whose lives were allegedly in danger upon return to the country, were subsequently inducted as allies by the then establishment headed by the late chief of the army staff, General Asif Nawaz, and IB chief Brigadier Imtiaz, with the blessings of the former premier, Nawaz Sharif, and were provided shelter by the Chaudhries of Gujrat.

  45. The decision by the establishment to support the Haqiqi faction — a breakaway group headed by the two renegades — was reportedly taken to counter Altaf’s MQM following the killings of MQM (Haqiqi) activists in Karachi.

    The differences between the MQM (Muttahida) and the intelligence agencies had sharpened by the end of 1991, and in December 1991, late Sindh chief minister, Jam Sadiq Ali, advised Altaf to leave the country saying he could be killed if he remained. Thus Altaf fled to London, where he remains in self-exile to the present. In May 1992, after Jam Sadiq’s death, Nawaz Sharif sent the army into Sindh to launch an “anti-terrorism” operation there and gave it corresponding powers under Article 147 of the constitution.

    The ISI and MI played a prominent role in this operation. In the initial stages the operation was confined to flushing out the dacoits in interior Sindh, but there was a major shift in the operation after June 19, 1992 when the army came out in support of the Haqiqi leaders, and the group led by Afaq and Aamir managed to enter and gain control of Landhi, Korangi, and the Liaquatabad areas. Before 1992, these areas were considered ‘no go’ for the Haqiqi men, but after ’92 they became hands-off for Altaf Hussain’s followers.

    Through this period, the intelligence agencies continued to play politics, and their officers could be seen with the rival factions of MQM. They also forced many MQM legislators to support the former chief minister, Syed Muzzafar Hussain Shah.

  46. There was another major setback for Altaf when the then co-chairman of the MQM, Azeem Ahmed Tariq, developed differences with him, reportedly due to the manouvering by intelligence agencies. Members of the latter were, in fact, present when he first surfaced at the residence of Khanum Gohar Aijaz, who was considered to be close to the authorities.

    On May 1, 1993 Azeem Ahmed Tariq was assassinated, just a few days after he addressed a press conference where he made statements against Altaf. But it is still a mystery who was actually behind his killing. The three suspects who were arrested for the murder, were also killed after they were released on bail.

    However, despite the Haqiqi’s control in certain areas and the support of the establishment, they failed to win any seats in the local bodies, provincial or national assemblies. It was only in the October 2002 polls that they managed to secure one NA and one PA seat for the first time in 10 years.

    Nonetheless, the Muttahida managed to win 17 NA seats and 47 PA seats, and given the weak position of the PML(Q) at the centre, found itself in a strong bargaining position vis-a-vis the establishment. Sources disclosed that President Pervez Musharraf, who is said to have a soft corner for the MQM (Muttahida) and was in favour of an MQM chief minister, asked his top aide, Tariq Aziz, to negotiate with party leaders, and gave the establishment the nod to clear ‘no go’ areas in favour of the Muttahida. However, after Jamali made it to the Premier’s seat, the Haqiqi were back in business in these areas.

    Meanwhile, even as the establishment was courting the Muttahida, cracks appeared in its own house, which resulted in the suspension of two top party leaders, convenor Dr. Imran Farooq, and deputy convener, Aftab Sheikh. Although they have only been suspended so far, for all practical purposes they are now out of the party, and it is only a matter of time before there is a formal announcement of their expulsion

  47. It is still a mystery as to what went wrong between Altaf Hussain and the two leaders, both of whom ranked among the MQM’s founding fathers along with (late) Azeem Ahmed Tariq, Akhter Rizvi, Saleem Shahzad, Tariq Javed, Tariq Mohajir, Aminul Haq, Ahmed Saleem Siddiqui, Kishwar Zehra and a few others. Interestingly, barring Shahzad and Javed, all the others have, over the years, left the MQM for one reason or the other.

    Those who remain close to Altaf, believe that despite these cracks in the MQM, Altaf’s grip on the party remains firm. They refuse to draw comparisons between the current situation and the crisis in the party in 1991, when Altaf Hussain sacked the then joint-secretaries, Afaq Ahmed and Aamir Khan, along with around 100 party activists, including sector heads.

    “That was like a mini-revolt in the party prompted by the establishment, while the current action against Imran Farooq and Aftab Sheikh is just an internal disciplinary matter resulting from the party’s performance in the October 10 elections,” said senior party leader, Nasreen Jalil, who managed to retain her membership of the MQM’s central coordination committee.

  48. It appears that Aftab Sheikh became the scapegoat as far as action against the coordination committee is concerned; he was the only member suspended for an indefinite period. Meanwhile, Dr. Farooq Sattar was promoted to the rank of senior deputy convenor and Dr. Ishratul Ibad became acting convenor, replacing Imran Farooq. There is an ongoing mystery about Imran Farooq’s whereabouts, as there has been no public reaction from him following his suspension. However, Jalil has confirmed that he is not at the London Secretariat. “He is living in London, but is not at the secretariat,” she said. And contrary to general perceptions, she indicated that while it is unlikely that Imran Farooq and Sheikh will be reinstated to their respective posts, they may still be given some other responsibility.

    When asked what the grievances against them were, the MQM leader, who herself lost the National Assembly seat from Karachi’s Defence Society against former mayor and leader of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), Abdus Sattar Afghani, said, “Imran Farooq was not giving the party enough time when it was most needed. He used to come to the secretariat very late, not giving due time and despite reminders from Altaf bhai, he did not change. As far as Sheikh sahib is concerned, he has started speaking too much, and often issues statements which are against the party’s basic policies.”

    Jamali, who become the country’s 20th premier will rule the country in great part, courtesy the support of 17 MQM MNAs and 10 members of the Pakistan Peoples Party “Patriot.” But while the latter bagged the highest number of ministries (six) as a reward, the MQM did not manage to secure even its demand vis-a-vis the ‘no go’ areas.

  49. The Muttahida’s go-it-alone policy has made the establishment’s ambitions to form a compliant Sindh government even more difficult.

    According to sources, Sindh governor, Mohammedmian Soomro’s role is adding to the confusion. He has serious differences with some of the top leaders of the pro-government Sindh Democratic Alliance (SDA). He has already been accused of manoeuvring the defeat of SDA chief, Imtiaz Sheikh, and former NA speaker, Elahi Bux Soomro and both have accused Mohammadmian on record of poll “rigging.”

    The indefinite postponement of the Sindh Assembly Session is an indicator of just how uncertain the situation in Sindh is. Reports that the government is, once again, clearing the ‘no go’ areas to allow the Muttahida supporters and workers into the area, demonstrate that the establishment is cognisant of just how complicated the situation is, and is attempting a policy of appeasement. Certainly, the MQM’s role is now pivotal – in any vote of confidence taken by Prime Minister Jamali, and in the formation of a government in Sindh.

    However, which way the MQM wind will blow, remains open-ended for the moment.

  50. To: Supreme Court of Pakistan, High Courts of Pakistan

    “Verily, Allah does not change the condition of a nation unless they themselves make the decision to change.” (Glorious Qur’an, Chapter Ar-Ra’d: 11)

    “A society can endure with infidelity but can not endure with tyranny”, said Sayedna Hazrat Ali (R.A.)

    Your Honour,

    Register Murder Cases Against Terrorist Musharraf and his Terrorist Ministers

    Pakistani Courts of Law Should Hang to Death All Terrorist Generals, Tyrants and Dictators – the Poisonous Snakes of Pakistan

    1. The High Courts and the Supreme Court of Pakistan should order the Pakistani Police to register murder, high treason and many other criminal cases against General (Retired) Pervez Musharraf – the top terrorist tyrant, evil dictator, fugitive outlaw, notorious thug, corrupt criminal of Pakistan – and his ruling tyranny of PML-Q and MQM led by terrorist Shaukat Aziz and terrorist Altaf Hussain. If the Pakistani justices/judges are really free and independent, then they should bring the Musharraf-Aziz-Altaf Crime Mafia of criminal terrorists to legal justice.

    2. During 1999 to 2007, the Musharraf-Aziz-Altaf Mafia has illegally subverted the Pakistan Constitution; rigged elections; unlawfully occupied the Government of Pakistan; appointed corrupt criminals as ministers, governors & administrators; sabotaged all democratic institutions; enslaved the judiciary; victimized many judges/justices, especially Pakistan Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry; murdered countless Pakistanis & Afghans – including women, children, men, business executives, lawyers, journalists and politicians – through repressive military-police operations; sold innocent Pakistanis & Afghans to make money; illegally arrested or kidnapped numerous human rights advocates, political activists & other citizens; wounded Pakistani attorneys, journalists & protesters through the criminal police; persecuted Opposition leaders; repressed women & children; oppressed various dissidents; abused human rights; violated civil liberties; suppressed the press-media; stole & wasted public funds; embezzled & misused foreign aid; usurped public lands/properties through the Property-Grabbing Mafia; misused the Pakistani military, police & security forces to oppress, persecute & enslave Pakistani citizens; destroyed mosques, Islamic schools & homes; institutionalized official corruption; increased unemployment, poverty & lawlessness; failed to provide free/affordable medical care, education, electricity, cooking gas & social services to ordinary Pakistani citizens; failed to generate new jobs for millions of unemployed Pakistanis; failed to improve Pakistan’s economy; undermined all pillars/principles of democracy; fooled/conned the U.S.-Canadian-European regimes to milk financial & military aid from them; and committed many other barbarous crimes to rob and rape the Pakistani Nation.

    3. Therefore, the Pakistani judiciary should order the arrest, indictment and prosecution of terrorist General Musharraf, all other terrorist generals of the Pakistan Army, terrorist and sycophant Shaukat Aziz; terrorist and sycophant Tariq Azeem Khan; terrorist, sycophant,Lota and Khwaja-sara Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao; terrorist and sycophant Zafar Iqbal Warraich; terrorist and sycophant M. Wasi Zafar; terrorist and sycophant Sher Afghan Khan Niazi; terrorist, sycophant, Lota, low calibre Sheikh Rashid Ahmad; terrorist, sycophant , low caliber and Lota M. Ijaz ul Haq; terrorist, sycophant, greedy and low quality Shujaat Hussain; terrorist and sycophant Pervaiz Elahi; terrorist and sycophant Arbab Ghulam Rahim; terrorist and sycophant Mir Jam Muhammad Yousaf; terrorist, sycophant ,Lota, Khwaja-sara, low calibre and low quality Mahmud Ali Durrani; terrorist, murderer, fugitive and production of agencies Ishrat Ul-Ebad Khan; terrorist, killer, fugitive and child of agencies Altaf Hussain and all those terrorists in the Pakistani media-press who are supporting & promoting the infamous official criminals & heinous crimes of the Musharraf-Aziz-Altaf-PMLQ-MQM Mafia of evil terrorists through Geo TV, ARY TV, Aaj TV, Indus News TV, Dawn News TV and certain other Pakistani sycophantic TV channels of corrupt megalomaniacs.

    4. The Musharraf-Aziz-Altaf Mafia of Satanic terrorists is NOT above the law. It should be held accountable in courts of law for its horrible crimes against the Pakistani citizens. Terrorist Musharraf, all other terrorist generals of the Pakistan Army, all terrorist ministers and all terrorist aides, abettors & supporters of criminal Musharraf should be hanged to death quickly when they will be convicted in courts of law by the Pakistani justices/judges, after they are thrown out of power by millions of oppressed, persecuted and enslaved Pakistani citizens.

    5. Indeed, the millions of people, judges/justices, lawyers, journalists, human rights advocates, students and teachers, businesses, farmers, factory worker, transporters, engineers, doctors and other healthcare workers, technicians, mechanics, clearks, accountants, labours; anyone who is not mentioned here; and all other progressive, oppressed and exploited forces of Pakistan and the rest of the whole world should unite, join hands and share their resources to oppose, expose and bring the Musharraf-Aziz-Altaf Mafia of criminal terrorists of Pakistan to legal justice.

    Justice delayed is justice denied and please do not support dictators, terrorists, evils, and mafia anymore.

    Thank you, Your Honour!

    Sincerely,

  51. During the 47th UN Conference which was held at Geneva MQM circulated to the delegates two specially prepared booklets; a 91-page book titled “Pakistan: where the State Kills”, and the 64-page “Pakistan” A Terrorist State”. The concluding lines of the first booklet read,” there is no doubt whatsoever that Mohajirs in Pakistan are subject to the same atrocities as the people in Bosnia, Kashmir and Rwanda”. The second booklet uses excerpts from domestic and foreign material to prove that Pakistan is involved in lawlessness in Kashmir on the one hand, and serves as a base for Islamic terrorists on the other.

    During this conference, MQM Anwar Khan interrupted the speech of Pakistani delegate with disgust, which not even enemies’ display at such civilized forum.

    During 1996 and 1997 the terrorist of MQM somehow again managed to enter in the Palle, the UN headquarter in Geneva, Switzerland and distributed various booklets and pamphlets, against Pakistan. Although during this period, the political wing was part of the Sindh Government. During March 1998 the same people of Muthidda namely Anwar, Arif Ajakiya with the support, help and connivance of anti Pakistan NGOs and Indian organizations not only distributed books, but confronted with Pakistani official delegation, Mr. Nehal Hashmi and other peace loving NGOs, who were supporting a peaceful and just cause.

  52. Sources said the decision to demolish Haqiqi’s headquarters, Baitul Hamza, before the by-election was taken to give confidence to Muttahida’s supporters and the people of Landhi in particular. Irrespective of whether Bait-ul Hamza’s demolition by the Karachi Building Control Authority ( KBCA) was legal or not, the decision was clearly a political one, given the timing.

But Benazir did not visit Johannesburg hence the planning failed, they said. They said since Ismailis contributed a lot to strengthen the country’s economy, hence we were ordered to kill Maulvi Akbar, who had embraced Sunni faith.

  97. Jan 27, 1999: The killings of hundreds of Karachiites was ordered by MQM Chief Altaf Hussain, the two-under arrest MQM terrorists disclosed as the Karachi police officially declared the arrest of the two RAW-trained terrorists and their four accomplices.

    Altaf Hussain has been personally giving me orders to kill, said 25-year-old Muhammad Nadeem, an under-matriculate involved in the killings of 203 persons in Kalashinkov attacks and bomb blasts, during SSP Lahore’s press conference conducted prior to any identification parade of the accused, or their statement in judicial custody.

(Nation).

    According to WWI, CIA Jamshed quarters arrested MQM’s terrorists Mohammad Shakeel alias “chikna” who had opened fire on Columbian Experts, arms were also recovered from him. (Nawa-e-Waqt February 12, 1999)

  99. There is a Gujarati saying that when one falls out of favor with luck, one may ride on a camel and be still bitten by a dog. The Mohajir Qaumi Movement faces a similar situation. It can change as many faces as it likes: from All Pakistan Mohajir Students Organization to MQM, from Haq Parast (worshippers of truth) to Mohajir Rights Front, from Mohajir Tiger Force to MQM international wing, from Muthidda Qaumi Movement to Rabita Committee; but it cannot help its luck. It is what it is – a destructive instrument in the hands of Altaf Hussain.

    So it is a duty of the government to tell the people what MQM stands for, whether it is a political group or a gang of terrorists, who are these deserting rats, what do they want, how do they treat places like Kashmir, Pakistan and Karachi, why do they kill, why do they promise to send dead bodies, who do they serve by heightening linguistic feelings, why do they hit transformers and leave people to roast in heat, why do they burn transport, why do they target personnel of law enforcing agencies, why do they torture common people, why do they pump bullets into public servants, why have their bullets torn away life from SHOs Bahadur Ali and Imdad Khatian, DSP Bashir Ahmed Noorani (from Sukkur), five relatives of DSP Nisar Khwaja, DSP Tanoli, SDM Mohammad Nawaz Khushk, Journalist Mohammad Salahuddin, Azim Ahmad Tariq, Zohair Akram Nadeem Pir Pagaro’s son-in-law, Salim Malik, KESC Chairman Malik Shahid Hamid??? And how finally a renowned scholar, Chairman Hamdard Foundation and Ex-governor Sindh Hakim Mohammad Saeed?

    The government of the federation is under obligation to explain also to the people who robbed their laughter, who turned the cosmopolitan of Karachi city, its citizens, its hospitals, parks, roads and avenues, its storage houses, police stations and assembly houses into exclusive property; who tempted the citizens to sell off all means of recreation and buy guards with the money; who were the people who never started a single development project in Karachi but did every thing to destroy the KMC by controlling it during 1987-92 and the provincial government by controlling it during 1990-92?

    Government is also called upon to explain the lack of round of MQM, and the role different personalities played in its origin, what factors were responsible for the creation of a client class of industrialists and business men which paid protection money, and was physically forced to pay it in the event of a refusal.

    Then there is a need to explain why this party (MQM) tends to dishonour the modesty of the womenfolk on popular level, what conspiracy led to the slaughter of Pathans although the bus that crushed Bushra Zaidi to death was not driven by a Pathan and how one after the other – from Nahid Butt to Shazia to Farzana Sultan to Rais Fatima to Semi Zarrin etc etc. – the women have in succession been disgraced in what look like nothing but petty political gimmicks? Why the MQM works against everything that pertains to Pakistan, the two-nation theory, its geographical and constitutional unity, the democracy and the peoples will? Why they collaborate with people like the late G.M. Sayed to up apart the multi-ethnic and cosmopolitan fabric of Karachi first and the whole nation of late.

    The people would also like the government to explore the historical fact as to why an anti-democracy force and its adherents abhor the men of letters? The men who have undertaken to defend their country with their blood, the Pakistani Army.

    But all this will require a review of the thoughts propagated by Hitler 65 years ago and of resemblance’s Altaf Hussain has with that Nazi leader.

  100. ANTI-STATE ACTIVITES OF MQM

    MQM killed thousands of innocent persons including government functionaries. Its first major situational action against political rivals comes in Pakistan Steel Mills in 1990 when a number of men kidnapped from there. These men were taken to torture cells in Landhi and Korangi. Since then, torture and murder of army officers, navy functionaries and a whole range of other professional and non-professional men and women has become a routine. Hundreds and thousands of innocent citizens were eliminated by the terrorists of MQM in Karachi. Among them are eminent citizens, politicians and law-enforcing personal, high government officials, writers like Salahuddin and finally the former Governor of Sindh, internationally renowned scholar and social worker Hakim Saeed.

    The method is simple. Terrorists choose a government servant and mark his residence. They watch his movements and his routines. Then, when orders are issued to “resurrect the movement and do his case”, the man is whisked away from a convenient spot. The kidnapped is invariably tortured, then killed and his body stuffed in a gunny bag to be dumped on a street in the quiet of the night. The movement of Haqparasti (truth worship) is thus kept alive. In 1995 alone, 120 public functionaries were killed in this manner by MQM terrorists.

    The question is, if MQM has not been engaged in killing government officials, policemen and members of other ethno-linguistic groups, what has it been doing all these years? A group which is armed to teeth and given to a foreign induced philosophy of separatism cannot do much else. The whole country knows that it started the gory tradition of killing innocent, unarmed civilians in a bid to cause a wedge in the nation.

    The people of Pakistan want MQM to renounce its anti-state operations, but it is understandably a hard thing for the group to do. Its personality and holding power depend on men like Farooq Dada, Asif Zaidi, Ali Mota and the like. Regrettably these men can in one lifetime kill 60 to 65 government officials for the sake of Mutahida glory, but they cannot turn it into a formation fit for human politics.

    The whole world knows that Altaf during a telephonic address instigated his audience to chant the slogan “aadha tumhara aadha hamara” (half & Sindh for you, half for us) and this slogan obviously reminds us about another slogan which was raised some quarter century ago” Udher Tum Idher Hum” and the horrible consequences it bought in a form of Dahka Fall. At the end of the meeting a prayer was held which said, “makes us the sons of our soil, O Lord,” then there is Rana Safder Ali Khan’s threat in the Sindh Assembly, “we will demand the deployment of UN troops in Sindh”, or Ajmal Dehlavi’s threat, “give us our rights otherwise India, or some other country may intervene.” One also has not forgotten the “break Pakistan” slogan raised by mourners during a funeral procession in February 1994.

    MQM’s strategy to effect a division of Sindh is reflected in its efforts to point all the parties active in Sindh politics as Sindh parties with support base in rural Sindh only, and itself as the sole spokesman of urban Sindh is aimed at boosting its claim for a greater share of power on the one hand, and playing up the non-representation of this population on the other. Coming to Sindh’s Mohajir population, it used to be estimated by MQM at around a few million in 1986. In 1990, Azim Tariq put it at 10 million. In a petition filed by MQM in the Supreme Court in Jan 1995 – it was mentioned as 15 million. Seven months later in September 95 they said it had become 22 million, growing at a preposterous rate of one million heads every month.

    MQM understands one thing. There is no urban – rural dichotomy when it comes to rights, and there are no set formulae – Rights are where the need is. Had it been for geographical area, Tharparker and Dadu would be getting the most funds in Sindh and Baluchistan would be claiming a lion’s share in the federal pool. Had the criterion been the population Punjab would today be far more developed than Karachi. In Sindh, Karachi with its 10 million population would be receiving much less compared to rural Sindh where a greater majority of people lives. But this is not the case.

    In Karachi 10% of the people of Pakistan have 70% of its wealth. Total population of Pakistan is 130 million and the; population of Karachi which is even less than 10% of total population have 70% of country’s wealth, and yet Altaf Hussain claims that they are being discriminated against. The truth is that Altaf wants all this wealth for himself. He publicly ordered Mohajirs not to pay taxes as these taxes are used to develop poorer areas of Pakistan. And then he; professes to be the protector of the federation. Altaf knows this and wants to separate so that he has it all to himself.

    In spite of the fact that Karachi remains the most prosperous city of Pakistan, offering unequaled facilities of urban livelihood, the best industrial infrastructure and the highest rate of employment, a major share of Sindh’s development funds continues to go into the city because its growing size makes the upgradation of its infrastructure imperative. Rs 121 billion have been earmarked as the Karachi package for various schemes in this regard. This is much more than what is getting in to rural areas. …

  101. The successive years saw the terrorists upgrade their weaponry from simple revolvers to Klashnikov assault rifles and rocket launchers. Terrorists used their war machine to strike at the national interests of Pakistan on the one hand, and use cellular telephone and pager facilities to organize raids against government officials and political rivals on the other. 360 policemen were killed during these years.

    MQM insists that its strikes are peaceful. But the facts speak other wise, In a total 38 strike calls spread over these years, MQM prevented Rs 30 billion worth of business transactions from taking place. Hundreds of thousands of people had to do without postal and other communication facilities. Given these facts, it is a wonder how “educated men” like Ishtiaq Azhar and Dr Farooq Sattar can insist that strikes do no harm Karachiites.

  102. BHATTA (A FORCED TAX)

    Since 1988 the terrorist of Altaf Hussain introduced a new method to collect tax from the common, ordinary citizen which called Tanzimee Chanda, later on the method of collection was divided in various forms, one is monthly tax from each and every shop and house. Another forced tax called “Saman Kiya Tayyar Hai” which used for the purchasing of arms and ammunition to protect themselves, later on almost every shopkeeper, industrialists, businessmen and investors was compelled by the terrorist of Altaf and his Muthidda either to pay the weekly tax or shut down and closed their business and commercial activities. If someone refuses to pay either he eliminated physically or his business forced to close by the terrorists.

    Resultantly hundred’s of businessmen shifted their business from Karachi to other part of Pakistan. According to a report pudlished in a news daily “MQM’s monthly income, which it earned through Bhattaism before the imposition of the Governor Rule in Sindh, was Rs. 600 million. Never a single penny was spent on the economic and social betterment of Karachi people. In fact this money was use to arm the youths of Karachi with weapons rather than education, the business and trade in Karachi almost rewind due to this forced tax and robbery.

  103. UNWRAPPING THE RAPE DRAMAS

    MQM was asked to give up the policy of using women to incite violence. MQM denies this, of course, but evidence exists to show that cases of gang rape were cooked up either to help it steer through a tight sot, or put the government on the defensive.

    MQM origins are tied with the famous name of Bushra Zaidi, a Sir Syed College girl who made Altaf Hussain’s career by dying in a road accident in 1985. Since then, a woman has always figured in the evolving strategy of Altaf Hussain to build an empire on terrorism. Nahid Butt, Shazia, Seema Zarrin and others. All these women were portrayed as victims of sexual assault. Not one of them ever comes to fit the merits of the case.

    Take Shazia for example, the sister of India based Javed Langrha. She had a tiff with the family, and went to her grandmother’s house without telling anyone. She stayed there for two days. MQM was quick to react. Shooting in the dark, they cooked up a story that the personnel of Rangers had carried her away. Hearing the scandal, Shazia returned home and told the truth. Milk was separated from water.

  104. CASE OF NAHID BUTT

    Nahid Butt’s name figured at a time when hostilities in Kashmir had temporarily heightened. She was used to put across the message that Butt (a Kashmiri tribe) women were as exposed to rape in Karachi as in Kashmir. Khalid, MQM activist who was claimed to be Nahid’s brother, turned out to be her lover. Khalid alias Taqqi alias Mamoo was a resident of Lines Area.

    Presently he is charged with 10 cases of murder and is in official custody. MQM attempted to portray him as a Kashmiri sympathizer of the party who resided in New Karachi. An army officer was accused of raping Nahid. The army plunged into action and investigated the case. As it turned out, Nahid was not a Butt, but was painted as such for political reasons. Moreover, Khalid was not her brother, but one of her lovers. She was found carrying contraceptives on her, and admitted that she entertained MQM boys off and on.

  105. FARZANA SULTAN “RAPE” CASE

    A case in point is that of Farzana Sultan, the young sister of MQM activist, Shahid Feroz. Although the poor girl was subjected to this unwarranted ignominy for the sake of a lie, 30 people died as Altaf Hussain called a strike in reaction.

    On its part MQM sensationalized the drama by inviting suitors for the `raped` girl. For several days, the local press carried Nine-Zero’s press releases counting the names of the suitors who had volunteered to take in the daughter of the nation. It also gave a call for protest strike, in which 30 persons died in the name of Farzana Sultan. Altaf Hussain’s ego further inflated by an inch.

    MQM has time and again used women folk to incite violence and disturbances in the city. A case in point is that of Farzana Sultan, the younger sister of MQM’s activist Shahid Feroze. It was alleged by MQM that on June 20, 1995, a fifty (50) years old PPP Councilor Naeem Qureshi along with seven (07) others, including his alleged son Bhoora had subjected Farzana Sultan to gang rape.

    On the evening of June 22, 1995, some MQM’s leader arrived at Karachi Press Club at 09.00 p.m. along with Mr. Shoaib Bukhari, MPA and Deputy Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly, to address Press Conference. The Press Conference was video taped and also transmitted through mobile phone to London for the consumption of Mr. Altaf Hussain. In the Press Conference the above allegation of gang rape were repeated.

    On the same day, Mr. Shoaib Bukhari lodged a FIR with area Police Station, wherein the allegations of gang rape were repeated. However, the name of PPP Councilor was conspicuously not included by Mr. Shoaib Bukhari. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Naeem Qureshi the PPP Councilor did not have any son by the name of Bhoora.

    Mr. Altaf Hussain and other leaders of MQM sensationalized the alleged incident and called for strike in protest in the city. Colossal damage was caused to public and private properties and about 30 innocent people were killed by MQM wherein 94 police and private vehicles were set on fire. The hooligans of Altaf Hussain for couple of days disturbed the city. In the process the poor girl Farzana Sultan was subjected to all kind of adverse publicity.

    The Government, immediately taking cognizance, of the allegation leveled by MQM, ordered the medical examination of the girl, which was carried out and the report was immediately made public. Mr. Altaf Hussain and other leaders of MQM disputed the findings contained in the medical report “that no marks of violence were found on the person of the alleged victim nor there was any medical evidence of the alleged gang rape or rape.” The Government immediately offered that the doctors of the choice of the parents of Farzana Sultan and MQM from Pakistan or abroad might be examined the alleged victim.

  106. REPORT OF AGHA KHAN UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL

    On June 26, 1995, Agha Khan University Hospital Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology Faculty, including Professor and Assistant Professor examined the alleged victim of gang rape Miss Farzana Sultan. The report of Agha Khan University Hospital concluded, “the clinical findings in this case suggest minor injury to the posterior area of the fourchetta, which is almost healed, although still sore to the patient. The findings are consistent with the conclusion that the patient has had sexual intercourse in the recent past”.

    Subsequently, the follow-up medical report in the case of the alleged victim was issued by the Agha Khan University Hospital on July 02, 1995. In the follow-up report it was further concluded, “besides shows inflammatory exudate with metaplastic cells and gram negative intracellular diplococci, confirmed by culture to be Neisseria Gonococci. The infection is confirmed to be sensitive to Penicillin, Erythromycin, Cefotaxim and tetracycline”.

    Based upon the above findings it was advised by the Consultant Physician that Miss Farzana Sultan should pursue appropriate follow-up and treatment without delay.

    From the above medical findings it was quit clear that the alleged victim Farzana Sultan was not subjected to the alleged gang rape or rape as was insinuated by Mr. Altaf Hussain and other leaders of MQM. Be that as it may, owing to the said allegation of gang rape and subsequent call of strike and agitation given Mr. Altaf Hussain from London and other leaders of MQM from Karachi resulted in 30 innocent people being killed and damage to private and public properties besides disrupting the city life and causing trouble in the city.

  107. THE FINDINGS OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF USA IN THE CASE OF FARZANA SULTAN

    The State Department of USA, recently, issued its Human Rights Report regarding Pakistan, wherein inter-alia about this incident of alleged gang rape of Farzana Sultan, the report contains a finding “although the MQM/A consistently claims that its activists are innocent, unarmed victims of ethnic violence, disinterested observers believe that cells of armed MQM/A activists are responsible for a considerable amount of Karachi’s violence and crime. This includes extortion of large sums of money from Mohajir businessmen as well as others.

    In an apparent attempt to inflame public opinion and destabilize the situation in Karachi, MQM/A leader Altaf Hussain the alleged gang rape of an MQM/A supporter (while in custody) to call for three ” days of mourning” in Karachi June 24-26. At least 67 people died in strike-related violence during the protest. Medical reports on the alleged victim, however, did not substantiate the charges of gang rape. The MQM/A enforced numerous other strike calls with violence, resulting in the deaths of law enforcement personnel and civilian bystanders.”

    It is the standard practice of Mr. Altaf Hussain and MQM to concoct and fabricate false allegation and create an issue out of non-issue and exploit it to the hilt through the medium of aggressive propaganda and rhetoric and then malign the Government and give calls for so called protest strike. Invariably in all such cases strikes have been enforced through intimidation, resorting to indiscriminate firing and burning of public and private transport. In the case of Farzana Sultan, it has been established by independent findings of Agha Khan University Hospital, which also substantiates the findings of the Government doctor that no rape or gang rape was committed and the allegation was concocted.

    It is well known and talks of the town that terrorists of MQM used to enter in the houses of helpless people and commit rape with the women to terrorize the family and to blackmail. Being of Islamic and eastern traditions most of the families hesitate to lodge complaints against them. Because of the fear, disgrace, and defamation in the society, the helpless women can only pray to the Almighty for help and justice, besides looking forward towards the International community and the lawful authorities to eliminate such type of heinous acts of the MQM.

    The so-called Naheed Butt and Farzana Sultana rape case is just a tool for negative propaganda. At present no one knows the whereabouts of Naheed Butt and Farzana Sultan and many others. Such cases were only used for negative propaganda.

    It is apprehend that there is likelihood that “the evil mind of Altaf Hussain will create new rape dramas to save their dirty face from local, national and international community and to cover-up their terrorist and un-human activities from the eyes of law and peace-loving people.”

  108. I think that sub-continent has not seen a leader like this since Quaid-e-Azam. I truly believe this guy is principled, sincere, presents big ideas previously foreign to the politics and general public of Pakistan and wishes well for all people of Pakistan.

    If he were to have promoted what Kaloo did in Karachi and messed up our city; divided its inhabitants into ethnic groups then some of you (Imran haters) would have perhaps liked it!

    I am baffled that educated people of Karachi can only take an X-cabbie as a leader?

    Kaloo is a parasite and a traitor; for starting the ethnically supercharged political environment in our lovely city Karachi.

    Last thing I want to hear is ignorant people talking about greatest scarify made by people of Karachi in 1947. It was Punjabis coming across the border who got slaughtered; educated Indian Muslims, that now Kaloo seems to tell every one he belongs to, came on the boat. You ignorant, parasitical morons go read your history; you cell phone snatchers!
    Kaloo is in state of paranoia and is an incidental learner; he does not seem to get it right the first time:

    He starts a party MQM (fighting with sindis, pathans, balochies and punjabies) calls it Muhajir movement (I dare to disagree with this term – what about others who migrated and did not speak Urdu? Are they not Muhajir; who gave Kalo the authority to reduce sons and daughters of finest Muslims of India who moved from India to be called Muhajir for rest of their life; even after their sons and daughters have born in Pakistan?).

    Then kaloo learns it’s not flying well with everyone nationally or internationally, kalo tries to fit in and changes with his decree to Mutahida. I truly believe it Mustaqill Quomi Musibet!

    From the 83’s onwards a truly peaceful city and its people have been stuck with the fool! I want to know who killed Azeem Tariq; Hakeem Saeed and other nobilities. Who threatens living nobilities like Edhi? Who reduces a well trained and groomed (Musharaf) brave national hero an army general to an Urdu speaking only general, an ethnic hero?

    I firmly believe that when people can not see beyond their feet they can not get much far, and this is the story of MQM. They are as much to blame of current Pakistani mess as are the Taliban and any other kind of mafia. What was the judgment of the Canadian court?

    We will take Karachi (Pakistan Juggler v) back from kaloo and his thugs. Remember, when you have small dreams you become a small person/nation. To achieve big things you have to dream big and that includes thinking beyond ethnicity.

    MQM is in state of schizophrenia; calling PPP as feudal at one time now sitting in govt. With feudal!

    Calling Military as oppressors and bad etc. has been with them in last dictatorship.– Kaloo needs to makeup his mind; looser with big mouth!

    Today they are again on the wrong side of history; they have complained over the years about not getting fair treatment from anyone in Pakistan. They should have been with the Chief Justice and Judiciary’s freedom cause – and BTW they were you know on the other side of the line. Hell with Kaloo and his screwed up thinking!

    Long live Pakistan; Log live Karachi! Log live Karachi! Log live Karachi!

  110. Salman Ahmad and the MQM experience
    Recently, Salman Ahmad, a former band member of a musical group, Junoon, which is South Asia’s biggest and most senior rock band, made some public statements which are reproduced below. Formerly, he was also a part of another popular musical group named Vital Signs. He is a doctor, a music artist and an actor.

    I hope this statement by him helps MQM supporters make a sensible choice in the next elections.

    Altaf Hussain and his murdering accomplices deserve to be tried for their crimes against Pakistan. I’ve been threatened by them on many occasions in the past 15 years. One particular time was when I refused to perform at Altaf’s marriage function in Karachi and London where all the other artists, including Ali Azmat, were browbeaten to go and perform for his “Majesty’s” pleasure. The man who threatened me was called “Khalid bin Walid” who was a known terrorist and a murderer. He told me that Altaf Hussain, “his Quaid” had especially demanded me to appear with Junoon to perform at their ceremony function.

    Salman Ahmad – Picture courtesy Wiipedia

    When I refused to comply he called up my staff and my sound company guy, Ishtiaq Ahmed,and threatened them with dire consequences if I didn’t go. Ishtiaq pleaded with me to go and perform or risk being killed,and all this OVER REFUSING TO PLAY AT A MARRIAGE FUNCTION!

    As fate would have it,I’m still alive, but Mr. Walid was killed a few weeks later in a shoot-out in Karachi with Haqiqi activists. (Those who live by the sword die by the sword).

  111. In 1992,they also threatened to abduct my wife and children if I didn’t show up at an MQM rally and welcome their leader Azim Tariq. I still live happily with respect and dignity but alas Azim Tariq was also was killed in a mob feud. My friends, Junaid Jamshed and Sajid Hassan worried for my safety told me that I’m putting my family at risk every time I refuse to obey these goons and on every occasion I told him that if I give into their terror tactics I can not call myself a Muslim.

    Allah (SWT) is our protector and He has commanded us to stand up against injustice and that is why I applaud Imran Khan for speaking the truth about Altaf Hussain and his goon squad. I think the time has come for all Pakistanis to stand up and be counted. Do you want to live as a citizen of a country with dignity and all your rights protected or as a slave in someone’s fiefdom?

    “Baad-e-mukhalif sey na ghabra aye uqaab
    yeh to chalti hai terey oonchi uraan kay liye” -Iqbal

    (Don’t be afraid of flying against the wind, oh Falcon,
    this wind only blows to help you fly higher)

    Allah hu Akbar!

    Salman Ahmad

  112. There is also a Q&A session with Salman Ahmad below. I first read about this here.

    Q1: You recently stated in the press that MQM leader Altaf Hussain has threatened you on a number of occasions. Have you ever taken a legal action against him? If not, why? If yes, what happened?

    Salman Ahmad: Altaf Hussain is not courageous enough to threaten me directly…he gets his goons to do the dirty work.The first time I was threatened by the MQM was in the early 1990’s when their armed activists told me to go on stage and welcome their then local leader Azeem Tariq at the KMC sports complex. When i refused they threatened to abduct my wife and children. Then they called my house repeatedly and told my father and wife that they will shoot me if I continue to perform in Karachi. I took the threat very seriously and called the Sindh police who sent officers to protect my family residence. I didn’t make it a public issue then because the media was also intimidated by the MQM unlike the Pakistani media now which is strong and independent.

    I discussed the matter with legal counsel and everyone told me that no court would be strong enough to stand up to the MQM’s fascist tactics. My friends told me that since I’m a nationally known figure these thugs would be taking a huge chance at attacking me or my family for such a stupid reason.

    They did however disrupt many Junoon concerts at (REX) Hashoo auditorium when armed members of their student wing APMSO gate crashed, fought with private security guards and terrorized women, children and families by firing shots in the air and shouting party slogans.

  113. Unfortunately these threats have always been there and most artists have given into these terror tactics because of fear just like all the other citizens of Karachi all through the 1990’s right upto the present bloodbath of May 12.

    Another time I got a call from nine zero was from a guy called “Khalid bin Walid” who said that his “quaid” Altaf Hussain had personally demanded me to appear with Junoon at his “ghyabana walima” in Karachi followed by the one in London. When I refused to comply he told me that “aap nay iss shehr mein rehna hai ya nahin, yeh merey quaid ka Order hai” I refused and had no choice but to contact the federal govt. which provided Junoon with security at our Karachi concert. My security officer Hasnain and even my sound engineer, Ishtiaq, were told to convince me to perform at the walima where other artists were also hustled into going because of MQM’s reputation of terror.

    Junaid Jamshed and Sajid Hassan told me that these people are dangerous and not to be taken lightly. My response to them was that If I gave into these threats then all the songs that I have composed like “JAZBA-E-JUNOON, TALASH, EHTESAAB, MERI AWAZ SUNO, NO MORE, AZADI, MEIN KAUN HOON, ETC would all be blatant lies…

  114. Q2: Do you acknowledge the fact that MQM is a major party in Sindh?

    Salman Ahmad: My mother’s family also came from Patiala, India in 1947. Some of my relatives lost their lives and all their possessions during partition. They shed blood for a Pakistan which they hoped would give them human rights, protection and a home for their children to grow up in Peace and prosperity. Its for this reason that initially I supported the MQM, but when I saw their politics of terror, violence and coercion, I was disillusioned by them. After seeing the blood bath of MAY 12, Muslims killing Muslims, I’m forced to ask these questions: For how long will these parties continue to threaten the new generation of Pakistanis who are Pakistanis first and Sindhi, Punjabi, Mohajirs, Pathan, Baloch second. For how long will they arm young students with T.T. pistols and other weapons and teach them to kill rather than educate them. Is this the Pakistan they want for their children to grow up in? My appeal to the MQM and all the other political parties who believe in terror and violence is to listen to the voice of change: LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS and let us all help build a new Pakistan, a Pakistan of Peace,Justice and prosperity… A Pakistan which openly celebrates its beautiful and diverse people.

  115. Q3:You have also stated that, “I think the time has come for all Pakistanis to stand up and be counted.” Are you planning to take any action other than the statement you have sent out?

    Salman Ahmad: I’m an artist first and my work speaks louder than my words: From DIL DIL PAKISTAN to GHOOM TANA I have always had strong political views which have been reflected through my music and films. Whomsoever helps Pakistan become a strong,just and Peaceful country will always get my support. As a U.N. goodwill ambassador I have an added responsibility to promote HIV. Aids awareness and a global vision of peace, tolerance and coexistence. Pakistan is an integral part of this vision.

    Q4: You are friends with Imran Khan. Are you unbiased or are you working in support of Tehrik-e-Insaf?

    Salman Ahmad: Like I said I’ll support anyone who serves Pakistan’s interests and not their own.

    Q5: You have always been a strong supporter of President Pervez Musharraf. What is your view of his behaviour regarding MQM and what happened on May 12 in Karachi?

    Salman Ahmad: President Musharraf will be judged by the legacy he leaves behind. Its in his interest and Pakistan’s that he keeps the will of the people his highest priority. There should be a strong independent commission which should look into the causes of the tragedy of May 12th. Pakistani blood is not cheap. each one of the killers should be brought to justice and May 12th, “Bloody Saturday” should be a reminder to all, that, Pakistanis will NEVER surrender to terror and violence.

  116. Q6:All over the world, musicians often get involved in politics. You have made a political statement. Do you think Pakistani musicians should get involved in politics?

    Salman Ahmad: Its not for me to say what other artists should do, but this is a time for all Pakistanis to stand up and be counted.You have to ask yourself: will I always live in fear and be a slave in someone’s fiefdom OR will I express my true “Khudi” and fly like Iqbal’s “Shahine” to discover my highest potential.

    Q7:Are you planning on making a song about this – May 12 carnage?

    Salman Ahmad: Music, poetry and a guitar are far more powerful than guns, bombs and bullets. Sabir Zafar and I wrote the song “Junoon sey aur Ishq sey miltee hai Azaadi, Qurbani ki bahon mein miltee hai Azadi” for the movie, Jinnah. In this, Pakistan’s 60th anniversary of independence,

    I’d like to dedicate those words to the Martyrs of May 12 who shed their blood for the sake of Jinnah’s dream.

    I fully agree Salman Ahmad and any efforts he makes with or without Imran Khan to curb the menace called MQM. I wish them the best of luck.

    And for the record, yes, we are Pakistanis first and foremost and Punjabi, Sindhi, Balochi, Pathan or Kashmiri later.

    Sub se pehlay Pakistan…….. Pakistan Zindabad!

  117. AND THIS IS NOT ALL

    I guess folks are too afraid to comment on this post. lol

    Altaf Hussain has turned Karachi into mob rule circa 1985. Any thug can do that, provided the state finances and arms his gang. But only a leader takes a mob and turns it into a nation.

    It was really funny seeing the MQM parliamentarians huddled in front of the camera and putting out the zani ‘reference’ against Imran Khan. What kinda bottom feeding, sleazy scum do you have to be to pull that off ?. Most of their ‘leaders’ have murder and rape FIRs outstanding, including that degenerate ‘quaid’ in hiding.

    Yeah, people do fear MQM, which just gives those cowards more power. Whenever I think about it. I resent the fact that MQM supporters in Karachi are allowing this fascist organization to destroy the city of lights; Karachi.

    There is overbearing evidence of the terrorism committed by this fascist organization but the blindly following lackeys want to remain blind.

  118. Yeah, start crying about the situation resembling Bangladesh. Cry me a river about you own bogus insecurities told to you by MQM leadership. If people of Karachi [read: a few traitorous fools in support of MQM] are so eager about separation form Pakistan, they hould get separated. It would truly give them an idea of their importance with regards to other cities and Pakistan as a whole. After all, that has been an agenda of MQM for a long time and there is no doubt of it’s truth from reading Altaf “Terrorist” Hussein’s interviews when he is in India. What more could one expect from a person who is backed by RAW?

    Pakistan is much more than a single city anywhere inside it’s territories.

    Salman gave his interview because he was perturbed by the shameless killings in Karachi on the whims of Altaf Hussein. It’s called empathy, which prompted him to give the interview (which any patriotic Pakistani would do), not any personal gain since I haven’t found him to be pro-Musharraf or pro-Opposition.

    To repeat Azam’s words “they want to spoil image of MQM”, well its quite amusing really :). Does MQM really have a image? I suppose MQM has the image of a murderer, a thief, burglar, extortionist,.. etc.. I am amazed you are worried the image of this party is damaged, how exactly? It can’t get any worse, can it?

    True. MQM doesn’t has a very good image to begin with.

    The day we will get few more brave persoms specialy celebraties in karachi we ll remain hostage in the hands of fascit orgnisation ie MQM ,,,which can even kill his own founder member auch as Azeem Tariq …..can very conveniently shed away its Minstrer Aamir Liaquat who dared to condem salman rusdee in his programme and have an exvlusive honour to kill pride of Pakistan Hakeem Muhammad Saeed………who many else we remeber,,,,,,,,,Bravo Salman u ve gutts ,,,,,May Allah Protect u & family

  119. As per February 14th 2009 reports that MQM has expelled Saleem Shahzad and Mohammed Anwar due to their secrete activities, indicate that something is being hidden behind the scene.

    Anwar was charged that he had failed to defend MQM in one of recent Dr Shahdid Masood, Maray Mutabiq program. Though officially denied but inside sources confirmed that ‘there’s another power game going on in MQM.’

    Mutahidda Qoumi Movement (MQM) is always in power games soon after winning its first election in 1988. After 1992 army operation then it has seen much turbulence, when a major faction of its leaders decided to disregard Altaf Hussain’s dictatorial policies those lead the whole Muhajir Community in chaos. During that the city of Karachi had witness moments when Muhajir community garlanded the photographs of Altaf Hussain with shoes, everyone was spitting on it and so on. Takbeer, an Urdu weekly magazine, was publishing the stories of innocent Muhajir girls, victimised emotionally & physically by Muhajir Qoumi movement hard core activists.

  120. Altaf Hussain, with the help of the then Chief Minister of Sind, Jam Sadiq Ali, who had arranged him to fly to Saudi Arabia and then to United Kingdom, had left Karachi, probably for ever. While going abroad, when Altaf Hussain was asked by a journalist as “when he will return back,” the close by standing US consular general had said categorically that, ‘he will return as the Viceroy of Karachi,’ indicated hidden foreign agenda and their vested motives.

  121. Power game is always there in MQM, when its late chairman, Azeem Tariq protested against Altaf Husain’s policies and decided to lead MQM without him. He was mysteriously killed in his own house “on May 1, 1993 Azeem Ahmed Tariq was assassinated, just a few days after he addressed a press conference where he made statements against Altaf. But it is still a mystery who was actually behind his killing. The three suspects, who were arrested for the murder, were also killed after they were released on bail” writes Mazher Abbas. Though the killer was produced on to Pakistan Television (PTV) by Interior Minister of Benazir Govt, Naseerullah Baber, later he had made free on bail with the help of Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqi’s, the member of National Assembly & APMSO chairman, govt record confirms.

    Then, Altaf Hussain brought forward, an elderly Senator Ishtiq Azher to help regain strength which was partially taken over by MQM (Haqiqi) lead by Afaq Ahmed and Aamir Khan under the patronage of intelligence agencies. Ishtiq Azher had done a great job and sidelined Haqiqi group, regaining Altaf Hussein’s lost power in Karachi/Hyderabad. He was removed from the convener ship of MQM Coordination Committee probably due to a fear that he might take up Altaf Hussain’s position, later he was implicated in a fake case of US visas selling.

  122. Later, Ajmal Dehlvi, clad in while Kurta-Payjama with red mouth due to Pan, an editor of daily Aman, who used to write slain Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi as Shaheed, took the charge of Rabita Committee and tried to defuse ‘killing’ between MQM rival groups and govt agencies. He was successful in opening a dialog with then Govt and militarily authorities. Suddenly he was side lined for unknown reasons.

    Sheikh Liaquat Hussain, father of famous MQM (A) activist, Aamir Liquat Hussain, took the charge and brought back MQM to its level, where Altaf Hussain became indispensable and mandatory for its existence. He was moved back again though his son had made his way in MQM by achieving National Assembly seat and minister ship. After that Dr Farooq Sattar, a soft spoken spokesperson of MQM took the charge and tried to gain Altaf Hussain’s confidence.

  123. Current turmoil in MQM is last few days, erupted in the form of expulsion of hardcore activist from Karachi & NED universities including UK based Dr Imran Farooq, once welcomed by Altaf Hussain with open hands, and Saleem Shahzad, a man who was behind most brutal killings in Karachi and Hyderabad, reconfirm that MQM(A) is about to be split. Imran Farooq since his arrival in UK wanted to run the party as per his wishes, likely in conjunction with intelligence agencies who had orchestrated his departure from Lahore airport years before. Ultimately, he wanted to gain the highest position in party as Altaf Hussain had never sacrificed the way his workers had. “Who can tolerate this?” says the political secretary of Altaf Hussain in his private meetings.

    It’s strange that anyone who disagrees with MQM founder, mysteriously killed or implicated in irregularities. Either it is Khalid Bin Walids’, former special envoy of Water Board Karachi, killing over skin-money dispute or it is Syed Safwan Ullah, former housing minister, who had made gross financial fraud in housing sector especially in Karachi , not willing to speak about these cases or against MQM’s top command.

  124. MY DEAR !!!!!!!!

    MR ALTAF HUSSAIN IS THE ONE WHO HAVE STILL RELATIONS WITH RAW AS HE VISITS INDIA WITH THE SAME IMBITIONS.

    want here to rememorise the memories of yours, at the time when I am writing this note an OPEN LETTER is posted from MR.ALTAF HUSSAIN to THE chief Justice of PKISTAN, MR.justice IFTIKHAR CHUDHARY.

    It is intesting to note that the sender Mr.ALTAF HUSSAIN subjected out the matter of his post as to TAKE ACTION AGAINST THE PERSONS, BEAUROCRATES, POLITICIANS as well the FEUDAL LORDS who justified and by using tactics of malafide intention, cutted out all the applications, appeals, FIRS, REPORTS, claims, pleas, Orders and cases agains them selves.

    What a horrible thing is done by the CHAIRMAN of MQM- the MAHAGIR SECT BUTCHER GROUP , may be he has forgeted the incident of 12th of MAY, 19th of june, 11th of june, 25th of march, the incident of PAKKA QILA, the incident of QAID ABAD, the Horrible rape of BUSHRA ZAIDI to Nahid Butt to Shazia to Farzana Sultan to Rais Fatima to Semi Zarrin etc etc. – the women have been disgraced in all looks, the self-exile of the great MAHAGIR QUOMI MOVEMENT CHAIRMAN, AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, the restotarion of AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, The matrydom of AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, the KARACHI OPERATION, the butcher of MAHAGIRS, the fake FIRS and cases AGAINST the ideological SERVANTS of the MOTTO of MAHAGIRS, the wall chalking against IMRAN KHAN, the killings of TECNOCRATES, the incident of KARSAS, and interesting to note all the alleged cases inwhich he(ALTAF HUSSAIN) is nominated, the nemerically 12 cases against the governor of sindh, ISHRAT-UL-IBAD KHAN, the nominated FIR of the KILLING OF AZEEM AHMED TARIQ, SHOs Bahadur Ali and Imdad Khatian, DSP Bashir Ahmed Noorani (from Sukkur), five relatives of DSP Nisar Khwaja, DSP Tanoli, SDM Mohammad Nawaz Khushk, Journalist Mohammad Salahuddin, Azim Ahmad Tariq, Zohair Akram Nadeem Pir Pagaro’s son-in-law, Salim Malik, KESC Chairman Malik Shahid Hamid??? And how finally a renowned scholar, Chairman Hamdard Foundation and Ex-governor Sindh Hakim Mohammad Saeed against him.

  125. The so called leader of the struggle used all shun and evil tactics to cuttoff MAHAGIRS from MAHAGIR politics, to is the day when MAHAGIRS think before and after saying and accepying their national IDENTITY that they are MAHAGIRS.
    they migerated here just for the WORD and RELIGION of islam, they looses all of their possession just for the love of ISLAM and the MUSLIMS, but THE PIR SAHIB realises peple that MAHAGIRS are the terrorists.

    As at initial times ALTAF HUSSAIN give slogans like, homeland or coffin”, “freedom or death” & called and the migertors as MAHAGIR NATION but when his evil termanologies were been gained he give the IDEOLOGY RUNNERS the label of , traitors, and one who disbelif the thought of altaf is sloganed as death to Quaid’s traitors .

  126. The first to fall was Azim Ahmed Tariq who was eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf who were directly received order from their master through phone calls. But Muthaidda ostensibly mourned his death and held various official agencies as responsible for it. But confusion subsided when the former chief minister of Sindh, Muzaffar Hussain Shah, declared on the floor of Sindh Assembly, Azim Tariq was killed by Hashamuz Zafar and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui both activists of Muthaidda.

    S.M. Tariq’s murder came in the immediate aftermath of the arrest of Hashamuz Zafar by the law enforcing agencies. He was a close aide of Azim Tariq, and a potential witness in his murder case. Muthaidda again held the agencies responsible for the murder, and mourned his death amidst touching statements. During 1992-98 almost 450 central leaders and supporter of MQM (H) were killed and eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf Hussain including Mansoor Ahmed Khan (Deputy General Secretary of MQM (H), Sardar Ahmed (Finance Secretary of MQM (H) Rehan Umar Farooqi (Ex Member National Assembly) and many others.

  127. it is well known that Altaf Hussain has shown himself to be an extremely impulsive man who can alter a “principled” stand sooner than one can say Jack Robinson, and often for no obvious reason, unless one takes into account his well known tendency for terrorism as a tool of political black mail. A look at the composition of his dialogue team over the last many years demonstrates this fact. Just because many of the members of this team could not contrive excuses for terrorism on the dialogue table, they were frequently discarded in favour of others. And saw the replacement of M.A. Jalil with Dr Farooq Sattar, followed by Senator Ashtiaq Azhar and more recently Ajmal Dehlavi and company. The same goes for MQM’s assembly members, who are changed every time the elections are held so that they wouldn’t take roots among the masses and carve out an exclusive niche for their own leadership.

    After the departure of the PIR OF LONDON, he and His companions used to transform them selves as lover of humanity , but at the initial times they were deliberately involved in the killings government officials, policemen and members of other ethno-linguistic groups, foreign induced philosophy of separatism.

  128. Today ALTAF HUSSAIN and the MUTHEDA QUOMI MOVEMENT forgetted out that who were Farooq Dada, Asif Zaidi, Ali Mota and many all, now they enlightly calls them the TERRORISTS, but they do all and every thing for the SUPERMACY OF ALTAF not for the MAHAGIR CAUSE.

    ALTAF HUSSAIN uses Z.A BHUTTOO speeches which he give before and after DACCA FALL like” Udhr Tum Ider Hum” , ALTAF during a telephonic address instigated his audience to chant the slogan “aadha tumhara aadha hamara” (half & Sindh for you, half for us). this not all, he is the most horrible and bloody selfish person, he only belive in self rule,on the day of 18th JUNE , SUNDAY , of 2006 KARACHI: MQM chief Altaf Hussain has demanded that the country should frame a new Constitution or fundamental changes be brought in the 1973 document. Delivering address on the occasion of 28th foundation day of AMPSO(ALL PAKITAN mutheda STUDENT ORGANISATION) in London late on Friday night, he said that these changes had become necessary in view of the conditions surrounding Pakistan after the 9/11 incident in USA.
    He suggested that a new constitution be framed by picking equal number of representatives from the country’s four provinces or changes be brought in the 1973 Constitution with the consent and consultation of the federating units. His address was also heard by gatherings in Birmingham, Manchester and several other cities and towns of England, according to a press release issued here on Saturday.
    HE criticises Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif for branding him as a coward for escaping from the country, Altaf said he wanted to know if the PPP and PML-N chiefs were brave then what forced them to quit home quietly. Commenting on the claim of Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif that they had signed the Charter of Democracy to force the army out of politics, the MQM leader asked as to who had installed Nawaz Sharirf as prime minister of the country. Did Nawaz Sharif ascend to the post after roaming in the streets and roads or travelling in buses like a commoner? He posed similar question to Benazir. Altaf posed another question to them to provide food for thought to the people as to whether either or both of them served the masses or plundered the nation’s wealth with both hands during the period of their “misrule”? He himself answered the question by saying that both the leaders once used to brand each other as plunderer and security risk, adding that they had now joined hands to collectively indulge in loot and plunder. “But the people are sensible enough to understand the game and motif behind the so-called Charter of Democracy,” he said.
    Altaf demanded an immediate end to operation in Balochistan, saying that the crisis should be resolved through negotiations and mutual understanding. He also called for bringing to end the system of Jagirdari and feudalism.

  129. BUT on the assisination ALTAF shed as always crocodile tears, and after that he coalates with the PPP. Think what horrible he is!

    ALTAF HUSSAIN the economy spaicially the economy and structure of KARACHI CITY just for his own peace and fun, The movement of Haqparasti (truth worship) is thus kept alive. In 1995 alone, 120 public functionaries were killed in this manner by MQM terrorists, In Karachi 10% of the people of Pakistan have 70% of its wealth. Total population of Pakistan is 130 million and the; population of Karachi which is even less than 10% of total population have 70% of country’s wealth, and yet Altaf Hussain claims that they are being discriminated against. The truth is that Altaf wants all this wealth for himself. He publicly ordered Mohajirs not to pay taxes as these taxes are used to develop poorer areas of Pakistan. And then he; professes to be the protector of the federation. Altaf knows this and wants to separate so that he has it all to himself, Karachi Municipal Corporation when MQM was in did in power, especially in the light of this strategy to have an inkling of what is this all about. For five years during 1987-92, MQM wielded total control over the billions of rupees of corporations’ funds. But what was the result? Nothing but more destruction. And it couldn’t be otherwise, because if people’s problems have been solved, who will come to listen to fire-spitting orator dilating on then put theme of deprivation and helplessness.

  130. Altaf Hussain and his compainions are just anti-state, anti-religion, anti-human and ill minded persons who just wish their own supermacy,thay have INDIAN CONNECTIONS, they have SOUTH AFRICAN CONNECTiONS,A little before the army operation of June 92 Javed Largrha and his comrades slipped into India and, in connivance with the Indian authorities, started training camps for subversive activities inside Pakistan. Some Muthaidda activists who were later arrested – among them Naahid Butt’s phony brother, Khalid Taqqi – have narrated before the Islamabad press their tour to India in the company of Langrha, they are just as so CALLED TALIBANS who scater and distributes various anti state bookelets, During 1996 and 1997 the terrorist of MQM somehow again managed to enter in the Palle, the UN headquarter in Geneva, Switzerland and distributed various booklets and pamphlets, against Pakistan. Although during this period, the political wing was part of the Sindh Government. During March 1998 the same people of Muthidda namely Anwar, Arif Ajakiya with the support help and connivance of anti Pakistan NGOs and Indian organizations.

    During the 47th UN Conference which was held at Geneva MQM circulated to the delegates two specially prepared booklets; a 91-page book titled “Pakistan: where the State Kills”, and the 64-page “Pakistan” A Terrorist State”. The concluding lines of the first booklet read,”there is no doubts whatsoever that Mohajirs in Pakistan are subject to the same atrocities as the people in Bosnia, Kashmir and Rwanda”. The second booklet uses excerpts from domestic and foreign material to prove that Pakistan is involved in lawlessness in Kashmir on the one hand, and serves as a base for Islamic terrorists on the other.

  131. The first time Altaf’s Muthidda stayed away from the government’s annual, February 5 Kashmir Day protest was in 1990. The Kashmiri intifada was a year old then, and the Indian government was already feeling the heat. Relief came from Muthidda on February 6 and 7, when unprecedented violence started in Karachi and continued for several days. Since then the 5th of February has occurred many times, but not a single occasion has seen Altaf’s Muthidda joining the anti-India protest over human rights violations in Kashmir. If anything, it has punished the protesters on each occasion by resorting to terrorist attacks in Karachi and Hhyderabad. For example in such an attack in Liaquatabad killed 10 camp followers of Harkat-ul-Ansaar, a Kashmiri organisation. A pro- Altaf morning newspaper and another sympathetic eveninger put headlines that read, “5 die in Kashmir, 10 in Karachi”.

    This not the end of the butchers story, each and every a looses a life but amazingly MAHAGIR sect is nbot a hope less one, they feel proud on the MARTYRS, is MAHAGIRS ARE doning wrong?????? NO, not at all. If one belives that mahagirs are doing wrong than he is the great supporter of ALTAF HUSSAIN and his non- agenda based, baised agency. If todays MAHAGIRS are wrong than the the all the freedom fighter are wrong, all the right-cause based movements are false, all the motto based atruggles are just fakes, the PALASTINE, BHOSNIA, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN and the creation of OUR beloved homeland PAKITAN will be a flatter.

    THE evil deeds of the so called the CHAIRMAN AND FOUNDER MR.ALTAF HUSSAIN harm each and every body but the pain, griefs and assults which and what MAHAGIR / MOHAJIR / MUHAJIR sect feel and bear are just inconvinclble and beyond the wisdom, the whole sect just laid down but some MAHAGIR / MOHAJIR / MUHAJIR IDEOLGICAL SEVANTS are on the ground and their feets are non- shakable.

  132. Karachi public is no fool at all, they all know what MQM is, but irony of the situation is when you ask them why do you support them, answer of most education people always surprise me, “keya karain akhir hum mein se to hain”. And this party’s slogans are anti-establishment and anti-feudalism.

  133. Justice Tariq Mehmood was great in the opening “ceremony”. These lawyer people know how to argue ;-) Hats off for your brave stance. May Allah reward you, inshallah!

    The male lion cannot be kept back from attacking hyenas no matter how many hyenas there are . This male lion is mentally torturing the terrorists:-) The MQM goon was furiously defending a lost case. MQM guys must be thinking “Why is Imran Khan and the lawyers not afraid of us”. They have witnessed such opponents for a long time. They surely missed Imran Khan’s playing days, when he faced his opponents f.ex. the fearsome West Indians. He always led from the front. In my opinion he had the best Pakistani team of all time – not because of only talent, but because he injected a fearless mind in his players. This is exactly what he is doing in Pakistan along side the lawyers etc. We have seen that many politicians and TV anchors have been labelling the culprits as “unknown people”. In fact everyone knows who is behind these crimes against humanity, but they dare not name them. In the last couple of days we have seen Talat Hussain and Shahid Masood bluntly telling the MQM terrorists to stop the reign of terror and now we have an even more blunt man – a man of word – telling the MQM goons to stop the destruction of “mini Pakistan” KHI.

    We need to see such “immature” politicians more often on TV;-)

    They will ensure that people get back their lost pride and sense of justice, inshallah!

    Credit surely also goes to Kashif Abbasi for being brave enough to invite daring people like Mr. Justice Tariq Mehmood and Mr. Imran Khan. Well done, Kashif!

  134. I ask my Pakistani brothers in Pakistan and all over the world to save us Karachi residents from MQM. Please help us.

    If one speaks against MQM in Karachi, their friends and families are constantly threatened. If they don’t stop, they are beaten up and robbed. If they still resist they are eventually murdered. These terrorists have hi-jacked our city.

    Please, please, please help us. We all appreciate whatever Imran Khan is doing. He is a true brave hero.

    Most urdu-speaking people are fed up with MQM. But we are powerless and constantly under threat. Even people’s party is openly supporting MQM.

  135. Sorry for repeating, but I needed to add a few lines.

    I ask my Pakistani brothers in Pakistan and all over the world to save us Karachi residents from MQM. Please help us.

    If one speaks against MQM in Karachi, their friends and families are constantly threatened. If they don’t stop, they are beaten up and robbed. If they still resist they are eventually murdered. These terrorists have hi-jacked our city.

    Please, please, please help us. We all appreciate whatever Imran Khan is doing. He is a true brave hero.

    Most urdu-speaking people are fed up with MQM. We only wish death for its terrorist rulers and workers. But we are powerless and constantly under threat. Even people’s party is openly supporting MQM.

    Arbab Ghulam should have been tried in court for slapping and abusing a media person. The man constantly threatened people and talked in an extremely abusive manner. As for Sher Afghan, he should have been hanged by the courts. The man used to constantly threaten the Judicial system of the country. These men (and other thugs of Musharraf, especially the ones here in Karachi) deserve a lot worse than a few slaps or broken bones.

    May Allah give Musharraf and his thugs the worst diseases so they die a slow and painful death and become an example for all. May Allah serve infinite justice as He is the only one who can do so. Amin.

    I can’t believe that I just said such a prayer, but I am just sick and tired with all of these in injustices. Some times I wish the same for Zardari. The real people’s party is now Fatima Bhutto, Aitizaz Ahsan, Raza Rabbani and a few others. Zardari is being supported only by the power hungry, greedy self-interested sects of the PPP.

  136. The Nazi’s got more votes than MQM terrorists. They were still evil.
    – Hosni Mubarak gets more votes than MQM. He is still unpopular and unjust.
    – Saddam Hussein got more votes than MQM. He was still a cruel dictator. I am not comparing him with the Yankees cruelty, which is far worse.

    The quantity of votes is not equal to quality of justice.

  137. mqm is a terrorist party or it helps to do so.one day will come when we will bring mqm leadership behiend the bars. mqm is a mafia organisation and the god father is sitting in uk and order giving man sitt in president haus(mushi shit and pakistans big bull shit president of pakistan) if ppp want to join this group then he can try it.
    Then we can show the power punch i meen public punch.

  138. if it is a mandate for injustice…no..
    if it is a mandate for terrorism…no
    if it is a mandate for bathakhori…no
    if it is a mandate for silencing any voice of dissent…no

    even israel has a mandate….but it doesn’t justify their terrorism..
    modi had mandate in gujrat….but the pogrom does not justify the mandate or the mandate didn’t justify the pogrom.

    mandate..without justice is fascism!

    by the way…does this mean that you accept that mqm has no ethics?
    your earlier argument with regards to the only party against feudalism..do you retract from that position? do you accept that mqm sold out to the establishment and the feudals to come to power in sind…and silently watched, supported, enacted the wrath of the status quo of the power elite in pakistan?? do you accept that despite mqm’s 5 …nay 9 years of tyranny..karachi faces the gravest power (bijli) crisis. what has mqm given to the poor of karachi…except mandate…

    yeh kaun si mqm hai jo aaj muhajir hai ..kal mutahida…parson..majboor..tarson…mandate…

    oh thats it…mandate qaumi movement

  139. MQM guys thinks everybody fool. They are now demanding enquiry of 12 May whereas everybody know they and Musharaf resisted the enquiry. They did not allow Chief justice and Imran to enter Karachi and now they are extending invitation? Do they genuinely believe that Poeple are fool? It is better for them apologize for their crimes against the people of Karachi and start helping the mainstream parties to restore peace in Karachi. But at the same time the culprits of 12th May and 9th April may be brought to justice. The demand of MQM to have an independent enquiry about the military operation carried out against them is also justified. In my view facts must be brought before the nation. It is possible that majority of MQM terrorist resorted to violence because they and their families have been the victim of State-Terrorism?

  140. MQM ’s Don Altaf Hussain has promoted

    1 – educated
    2- middle class
    3- GUN MEN.

    1- Educated: their education is about how to use chemicals to burn innocent people, which chemicals works efficiently, how to lie and present themselves as innocent after having killed dozens of innocent people, how to collect Bhutta on gunpoint etc etc

    2 – Middle class: it ’s type of terrorists like international terrorists, religious, political, sectarian.

    3 – Gun Men: they talk language of bullets, so be careful when you talk to them

  141. altaf group are just bhatta khore, killers and liars. You can only do local politics , make Pakki Naalis, and Paaki Sarrak.

    Rest of Pakistan has seen true face of MQM altaf group on May 12, 2007 and April 9, 2007. Your ghunda force on motorcycles doing target killing. So much innocent blood is on Altaf Hosain hands, he would NEVER, and I REPEAT NEVER come back. He will face the wrath of his own people.

  142. MQM propaganda machine is very active and outspoken. They show themselves always Mazloom. They claim in each incident in Karachi whoever was killed was MQM worker or supporter (hamdard). Now Pakistani society should also reply them with protests and expose them to the people of Pakistan.

    We should send reports to British, Canadian, US and European Immigration offices, MQM terrorists show themselves mazloom and get assylem in these countries. I will today gather different reports online and send to Canadian Border Service Agency. There was a time when U.S consulate in Pakistan used to issue visas to MQM terrorists even on the signature chit issued by MQM mafia. Can any body tell me who was MQM terrorist who hid in the US consulate in Karachi for one year and then he US allowed him to leave through Iran, Turkey and then he took flight to USA. Dear friends, you decide these people are agensts of anit Pakistan forces..please if any one know name of that person. mention here

    Someone posted earlier that MQM snatched the dead bodies and took them to nine-zero for namaz-e jinaza. Guys, you know MQM murdered each single personality who has his own circle of followers of he has political or religious influence. They killed Jamaat Islami leaders, Governer Hakeem Saeed, Salah-ud-Din Editor Takbeer, Jama-e- Banoria scholar. If you remember, in 90’s they even started killing defence forces personnels, that was reason for operation in 1992. Do you know, they killed all the police inspectors one by one now who contributed in that 1992 operation…trust me, they killed all one by one. The also killed army majors who tookd part in operation, I still remember all what happend at that time.

  143. We are not enemies of Karachi residents, beleive us, before arrival of MQM in Karachi, Karachi was a true international city, hub of international airlines, still in USA people who visited karachi priase old karachi in 70’s. Karachi was supposed to be Hong Kong but MQM ghunda gerdi just turned away all the world. No airline come to Karachi happily. Since 80s whole city is on MQM gunpoint. MQM is not representative of middle class..who come the Altaf bhaee sitting in London and claim themselve representative of 98% poor people. Shame on him. Just try to understand, we all not fools that just against MQM without any valid reason.

  144. Every bhatakhore leader has memorized list of accusation and got training how to cry to become mazlooml ( favorite topics establishment, feudalism; they are biggest tool themselves). But Mr. tape-recorded didn’t answer when Imran Khan asked “Why Canadian court labeled them as terrorists)”.

  145. bhaio…… karachi ko darindon ne zulam ka nishana buna rkha hai..

    khuda in zalimon ko barbad karega .. ya allah .. pakistan k mazlum awam ko himat day

    ya khuda in namalum afrad k ghar walon k ay sath wohi ho jo pakistnyo k sath hua! mazlum ki lash bhi chura li hai aur ghar valo ko dhumki de rahe hen…

    ya allah in darando ko jala kay rakh kar day.. nahi to shayad khuda nahi hai.. zalim dandina raha hen.. mazlum bebas hen.. khuda kaha he?

  146. they murderous ppl.. they killing people.. calling on tv bhai.. next day 2 other person finds in the jute bag of bori.. young of opponents of muthida… y only muthida ageist ppl of party dying? sunni dye mujajr dye also pathan dye too also

    y call bhi bhi? they kills ppl.. y always calling bhai? this is like munafik.. doctor satar say 12 May investigation mean lots of problems. why? is problem if truth is coming out?

    pakistan ko tabah kar denge.. jala raha hen.. insano ko bhi sabko jala rahay hen un par sulfuric or potash ka powder dalkar something come from mosad israil it is gunpowder of chemical
    on the meat it will sticks to meat and the human is dying even water is not helping

  147. I m a citizen of Karachi and I want to say verry Clearly.
    Karachi need an operation like Sawat and Citizens of Karachi and Specially Mohajir or Urdu Speaking sould take dicision Like Pakhtoons of Sawat about Gangster who are operating from London.

  148. What a joke this saleem Shahzad is….
    can any MQM bhatta khor justify the following videos….they are surely anti Pakistani and should to send back to their current home town India they are no more Pakistani at all…curse on them…

  149. Well Imran khan is really brave man.. but guys could anyone of you tell why IK is not supporting investigation of 27 Dec event… In which 8 man were also burnt alive in multinational company in Khi. along with many companies, banks and You might know many innocent girls were raped while coming back from work… here i feel little biased as being opposite to MQM.. he is getting away from justice… as IK declaring as reaction to BB murder
    so should they be left free for what they did…???

    and to my surprise and information Chief Minister Sindh has removed all cases of December 27… WHY ??

    having read that i feel that new govt. of PPP is even not on right way.. rather old politics..

    lastly i still see no protest for those who were burnt alive in Dec… what do we think only 9 April innocent were human being… bcz of our politics..

    I strongly believe whosoever involved in any event they must be hang on road.. so that others can learn…

    but Please do not be biased.. If we want justice we have to say what is right.. not what is our favorite leader is saying…

    Long live Pakistan!!!

    • i have a question too.
      why imran khan didn’t say anything about the target killings in karachi in pti`s karachi jalsa.

  150. I am from Karachi and I know that most of the sensible people don’t support MQM. MQM is loosing support day by day and people who were once with MQM because of the issues and stance of MQM have now realized that its all just a facade. Infact I can guarantee that MQM supporters are outnumbered by the people who don’t support MQM inside Karachi. Its just that they also don’t trust any other party and hence choose not to vote.

  151. I am sure that if impartial judiciary is restored, 90 percent of the MQM leadership & their workers would be behind bars just on the charges of possession of illegal arms let alone the crimes they have committed. I just hope that one day Karachi would be free of these terrorists & fascists who have ruined this economical & political heart of Pakistan.

  152. Here is the news item about the Canadian court’s decision regarding MQM to which referring to…

    http://www.canada.com/components/print.aspx?id=c045bc85-f122-423e-bcad-8cc6f2f20031

  153. Altaf’s resignation was brilliant. Perhaps one can also why, if Altaf was so sad about MQM failing to maintain peace in Karachi, did he not resign after May 12 and December 27-29? On both these occasions there was far greater loss of life and material than on April 9th.
    Other question to be asked was why did the US team meet MQM Mayor? On a visit that was controversial and criticized by most Paksitanis, these closeness between US establishment and MQM does nothing but breeds suspicion about MQM’s role.

  154. see Altaf twith UK passport smiling……he is not Pakistani guys…

    Ishrat Ibad caught by UK authorities

    MQM killed Tariq Azeem

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azeem_Ahmed_Tariq

    see this pic of ghundaaas. memorable

    “Kidnapping of Army officers”

    Main article: Major Kaleem Case

    Major Kaleem, who was then acting in-charge of the field intelligence unit, along with other army personnel Havaldar Moinuddin, Mohammad Yaseen and Nisar Ahmed, were sieged by armed activists of the MQM in the Landhi area Karachi on June 20, 1991. They were in the area following orders by their high ups.

    They were taken to a place famously called ‘Muhajir Khail’ in Landhi, where they were tortured and kept for seven hours. It was further alleged that conspiracy was hatched under the instigation and directive of the top MQM command. The army personnel were later released and handed over to the SHO Landhi Town police. The FIR of the incident was registered on June 24, 1991.[28]

    The MQM leaders were each sentenced to 27 year rigorous imprisonment by a trial court for torturing a serving major of Pakistan Army, Major Kaleem, after kidnapping him from Landhi area in 1992

    However, the convictions in the trial court were overturned by a division bench of Sindh High Court in 1998. But the government had challenged their acquittal in Supreme Court. On Aug 13, 2007, government withdrew its appeal against the acquittal, consequently the Supreme Court disposed of the case and acquitted the MQM leaders.

    Here is information about Shuaib Suddle

    http://www.pakspectator.com/who-is-dr-shoaib-suddle-and-tariq-lodhi/

  155. Unfortunately, most journalists in Karachi have a soft corner for M.Q.M. as they are also Urdu-speaking. These journalists played a major role in projecting Altaf Hussain as a “pir sahib” or holy man and looked the other way when it came to M.Q.M.’s terrorism.

    Dawn group of newspapers also helped in centre-staging Altaf Hussain in Karachi politics. The Herald was one of the first English magazines to carry an interview with him and the late owner of the newspaper group, Mahmoud A. Haroon stunned many Old Karachi residents by escorting Altaf Hussain.

    Haroon was an uncle of the present Pakistan ambassador to the United Nations, the rather colorful Hussain A. Haroon.

    Many concerned Pakistanis have debated the role of M.Q.M. in promoting fascism at a popular web site named Chowk.

  156. A man now living in London has allegedly ordered scores of opponents killed in the largest city of Pakistan, named Karachi. In his speeches in London, he displays his violent streak and openly says he will put dead bodies in gunny-bags.

    The man is Altaf Hussain and his party is named Muttahida Qaumi Movement.

    As per details 72 cases including 31 murder, 11 attempt of murder and 3 kidnapping cases were registered against Altaf Hussain.

    A couple of years ago this scribe’s young nephew Owais Bangulzai was shot dead by the M.Q.M. goons, along with another close relative in the Garden area. Bangulzai’s only fault was that he asked the goons not to collect extortion monies from poor shop-keepers.

  157. Altaf Hussain’s speech was full of emotions, tears, and words of forgiveness. Emotions – to keep his workers engaged, tears – to gain sympathies and forgiveness – to enlarge his shorten image. For those who know the history of 1992 army operation, MQM style of political dominance in 1990s, the bahtta (taking money forcefully from business and residential community of Karachi & Hyderabad) culture supported by MQM Unit Incharges and the approach of terrorism by MQM leaders, could easily say that these tears were crocodile one. Altaf Hussain’s cry when he called his 15,000 workers killing during that operation and wiping his tears, turned out be a Bollywood movie episode in which a villain trying to portray himself as hero.

  158. Even though personal incidents do not contribute to history, however its worth noting to understand the working style of MQM-mafia. In 1991 when my father’s car was snatched by few street guys in Nazimabad, we were told by the SHO of Gulbahar Police Station to contact NineZero, the famous headquarter of MQM. When approached, we were asked to deposit Rs.50,000 to MQM account and upon doing so, we were issued a slip to get our car back from the Police station. That’s how MQM used to control Karachi in 1990s before the transformation to Mutahhida.

  159. The fact is that, and could be confirmed by many former members of MQM who are still alive and had witnessed 1992 operation; it was against the criminal elements of Muhajir Qoumi Movement, the then MQM. The anti state elements were penetrated into MQM fold, few of them migrated to India during that period like Javed Langra, the recommendation letters of MQM’s most favorite leader (now he is Overseas Pakistanis Minister) to Indian Consulate, Karachi to MQM hardcore members to issue them visas, are still in memories of every one in Karachi.

  160. The figure of killed-workers is not exactly compiled by MQM, infact Jamat e Islami team had collected this info and published it as part of their Karachi review. Altaf Hussain by being the hardest anti Jamat person, is now forced to accept their compilation and propagate it. Those 15,000 were not killed by army alone, this figure includes those died during the period of 1992-1996 including the inter-factions killing among MQM – Altaf and Haqiqi groups and extra-judicial killing by Naseerullah Babar interior ministry during Benazir-led govt of PPP.

  161. Karachi residents had witnessed number of dead bodies packed in bags, were not only meant to spread scare in Karachi but the poor deads were the victims of MQMs inter factions fighting when Altaf Hussain group was trying to recapture its strength in various parts of Karachi. From Azeem Ahmed Tariq till Khalid Bin Waleed killings all are pointing fingers at those who are near & dears of Altaf Hussain now.

  162. Fortunately or unfortunately MQM is now an ally of PPP govt led by Asif Ali Zardari, so Altaf Hussain in his emotional speech has singled out PPP and tried to laminate the blame on only Nawaz Sharif during 1992 operation. If Altaf Hussain really felt the pain of his party-workers killed during Army operations then he has to condemn Naseerullah Babar’s operation too as it was too cruel to 92s cleansing!

  163. Similarly, in his first ever televised speech, when he was saying that “I was loyal to Pakistan , I am and I would be..” there would be many Karachi residents who know the history of FIR lodged on 14th August 1979 (SP/E/CE/89-37657 Karachi) when Altaf Hussain along with Afaq Shahid & Haseeb Hashmi was leading a procession at Mazar e Quaid shouting slogans against Quaid e Azam & Pakistan. After that three along with others had torched the flag of Pakistan and later they replaced the flag of Pakistan with a black flag on Mazar e Quaid. Altaf Hussain along with 11 others have been arrested and later awarded 9 months jail with 5 lashes each.

  164. in his first ever televised speech, when he was saying that “I was loyal to Pakistan , I am and I would be..” there would be many Karachi residents who know the history of FIR lodged on 14th August 1979 (SP/E/CE/89-37657 Karachi) when Altaf Hussain along with Afaq Shahid & Haseeb Hashmi was leading a procession at Mazar e Quaid shouting slogans against Quaid e Azam & Pakistan. After that three along with others had torched the flag of Pakistan and later they replaced the flag of Pakistan with a black flag on Mazar e Quaid. Altaf Hussain along with 11 others have been arrested and later awarded 9 months jail with 5 lashes each.

  165. When Altaf Hussain was shedding crocodile tears about Pakistan and his workers, I was holding the copy of said FIR and laughing!!!! With a view that Altaf Hussain was initially under the influence of G M Syed (Jaey Sindh) and various copies of MQM’s main organ Daily Qoumi Akhber are witnessed that he was, for many years, been asked to return to the main stream of national politics. Basis on that he had transformed Muhajir to Mutahidda Qoumi Movement.

  166. I was bit surprised when Hamid Mir in his famous CapitalTalk show tried to hide all such facts while speaking with MQM’s spokesperson Waseem Akhter. Originally the above mentioned FIR against Altaf Hussain was lodged basis on Hamid Mir’s investigation (and a report which was denied publishing in his newspaper where he was reported then).

  167. The memory of Lahore residents is not faded, when in Santnagar there have been killing of 12 people of same family. Their killers were not caught. During those days Hamid Mir was reporter in his newspaper of Lahore section. He had investigated and found that these 12 men have been killed in a doubt of being Afaq Ahmed & Amir Khan, the then dissidents of Altaf Hussain and were hiding in Lahore . Hamid Mir had reached Afaq & Amir and conducted their interview. When he brought this story to his Lahore newspaper, the editor-in-chief had refused to publish it. Finally this story was published in the “Inside Story” first edition in November 2001 under the editorship of Tahir Pervaiz.

  168. The details of all torture cells were revealed by both Amir Khan and Afaq Ahmed, the then hardcore terrorists of Altaf Hussain’s MQM. Thats how they have been used by Army and agencies to know the exact locations in Karachi. Later & still now, they have been termed as Haqiqi terrorists; no matter they are master of terrorism when they were blue-eyed boys of Altaf Hussain and now also when they are not associated with Mutahidda! Because they have been trained for this activity and they will continue to do so. Pak Army in 1992 and later Naseer ullah Baber only utilised them to point out the torture cells managed by MQM.

  169. At this stage Karachi residents are asking from Altaf Hussain to show moral courage as his policies have been failed miserably in last 20 years. No one in MQM knows about quota system, repartition of Biharis, and welfare of Muhajir community. The whole activity in MQM fold is to listen Altaf Hussain’s telephonic speeches and that’s all!

    Is this the reason for that MQM was formed?

  170. fewdays back a lpg filling shop owner was killed in Di’silva town block A North Nazimabad while yesterday another lpg filling shop owner was shot dead literally 200 feets from tamuria police station north nazimabad. Altaf is hitting where it hurts most.. these lpg filling shops were catering to Taxis and rickshaws being used by Pathans. By killing these shop owners he is directly targeting these people’s livelihood.

    2 more quetta tea hotels have been threatened and ordered to shut down in Block G haidry area.

    Annoyed Balochis,Pastuns,PPP,SunniTehrik,ANP Altaf seems to be taking them all head-on.

    British Grand Terrorist Altaf is basically creating a quagmire for innocent muhajirs living here in Karachi.


    MQM UC nazim, 15 MQM men arrested for ‘involvement’ in double murder of PPP men and riots

    http://tinyurl.com/mqmnazim15workerarrested

  171. So far here in Karachi 18 people have died and 85 injured belonging to both ethnicity but majority of them Paktun shop hotel owners,truck,taxi,minibus,rickshaw drivers . All of their vehicles and shops were burnt in similar style as was witnessed on 9th April when hundred of MQM’s unit terrorists attacked and set on fire tahir Plaza ,here to arsonists on dozens of motorbikes ganged up and intercepted these pathan owned transports and burnt their vehicles and beat them up. All this was going on since afternoon but media kept queit as noticed by TM and things got panicky only when media started giving coverage to these incidents in the evening. All in all according to karachi police cheif Waseem Ahmed 18 people died 85 injured and 60 vehicles and 6 shops burnt so far and things are relatively calm at the moment.

  172. Altaf bai’s unit terrorists have beaten up pathan tandoor owners as well in several areas, now what next these terrorists would be setting up their own tandoors and would be selling bread(roti)? Altaf bai better start a cooking channel, because his goons would need a lot of training if he seriously wants them to quit terrorism and earn a decent and honest living.

    http://www.ummatpublication.com/2008/11/28/lead20.html

  173. MQM’s terror wing chief NROfied British terrorist Saleem Shahzad’s visit has started showing its true colours.

    Altaf goons simply won’t understand all that. These days they are not even sparing mochi(cobbler) and Peanut sellers on pushcarts. They have beaten them up at several places . Several more Quetta Tea shops have been raided and ransacked by MQM’s unit goons in Liaqtabad Paposh Nazimabad area. Altaf’s unit goons are obviously trying to provoke and stir up some serious conflict. As i earlier said Altaf should first teach his unit terrorist how to prepare a good cup of tea or how to mend shoes before flushing and beating mochis and tea walas because currently his gun touting goons are just good at collecting bhatha(extortion money) so this transition obviously might be painful for them.

  174. Mochi, tandoor wala, chai wala, dry fruit wala

    MQM’s terror wing chief NROfied British terrorist Saleem Shahzad and his fraud pir grand terorist Altaf seem to have thought of some seriously ambitious plan to rehabilitate MQM’s unit and sector terrorists.

  175. And finally…

    Senior Police officials and investigating agencies have compiled a list of terrorists involved in ethnic violence and terrorism. Majority of them belong to MQM’s unit/sector terror cells . Police officials plan to take action against these terrorist who are trying to stir ethnic violence under the pretext of talibanization .

    http://www.ummatpublication.com/2008/11/28/lead15.html

    And as predicted in this report,14 SHO have been have been changed here in Karachi and i am anticipating some kind of action against MQM’s terrorist gone amuck againt pathan owned businesses .

    And if that action is started then Altaf would start wailing, howling and shedding crocodile tears in London calling it action against Muhajirs and conspiracy of Establishment.

  176. i believe in one thing very stongly.
    HAR FIRON KAY LIYE MOSSAA HAY.
    so we have to wait for the MOSA to one day and handle MQM .inshallah

  177. everyone should clear his/her mind that picture has been totally changed and ppl of karachi realized the harsh fact and original face of horriable mqm… they realised that they were wrong and trapped by slogans of mqm …like 98% representation or middle classin politics watever they claimed or chanted.. but now everyone saw that mqm has no faith, no believe, no concept, no idealogy except this jis ki hokamat us k saath… they r balck mailers and killers ..now this is a mafia who hostaged this city… no large no of citizens go to cast vote for mqm but they used thier terrorism specialities by forcing them to cast votes in thier favour.. plus, if ppl do not go to polling stations, they do fill vote boxes in their own favour without any hesitation… same it happened in 18 FEb election and everybody knows it. this is an open secret. so in short mqm is not true representaive of karcahi ppl. mind it.

  178. mqm did not worked for urdu speaking community but snatched thier identity being an educated, cultured and civilized nation… mqm ruined the education system of karachi and killed a lot young generation… but u ppl could not understand it … go and ask to those who have lost thier young son/brothers or facing Bhatta mafia in karachi… i m not saying that any party is angle and mqm is not but here i m trying to say that every political party is corrupt and selfish but not a death squad. we as a nation should wake up and realise and acceot the realities not dreams or blind love

  179. Brief pointers about MQM facts

    MQM is a US sponsored bunch of Ghundas .
    thier Moto is Destruction.
    thier line of action is HATE.
    thier code of conduct is Gali.
    there strategy is Ghunda Gardi.
    thier vision is to KIll everybody to solve all the problems.

  180. thats a reality too that MQM always licks the boots of Waderahas,Chdhris and Maliks to be in powers ….
    they love to butter Benazir a feudal party head.
    they love to butter Zardari now.
    they love to butter Mush the dictator.
    they love licking boot.

  181. Just to add emphasis on your points I shall add altaf kaalia’s salaam to punjab, funniest and most fuked up thing i have ever soon. Imagine him in UN forum ^.^

    I feel greasy just listening to him … so much butter licking !!

  182. Does it really matter who the founder of Cosa Nostra is? Does it matter who the founder, the original founder of Al Qaeda is? Well those questions are worthless because in the long run, both of them spread terror and the world’s authorities are out to fight them … Just like that MQM doesn’t matter if it was made by kaalia or zia or whoever was krazy enough, the point is they kill ppl !!! the extort, they are holding Khi hostage, they are suppose to be the voice of the muhajirs, i m a muhajir, they are not my voice.
    On top of it all, its a party which hates other muhajirs (immigrants) like Pakhtoons. What about their rights, you douches.

  183. http://mqmloyals.wordpress.com/2008/07/10/tribute-to-founder-leader-mqm-altaf-hussain/

    These MQM LOYALS sound like a very good MQM source let’s ask them who is the founder of MQM …
    “Tribute To Founder Leader MQM Altaf Hussain

    Mr. Altaf Hussain founder and leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) was born on 17 September 1953 in Karachi. His parents late Mr. Nazir Hussain and mother late Khurshid Begum both belongs to religious families of Indian city Aghra. Late Nazir Hussain father of Mr. Altaf Hussain and his grand-father late Mufti Muhammad Ramzan was Mufti of city Aghra (U.P, India). He was a great scholar of Islam. His late mother and late maternal grand-father Haji Hafiz Rahim Buxsh also religious and belongs to well-known honourable family of city of Aghra….”

    Unless MQM is lying to it’s own people about MQM’s real founder and i don’t know how many other things… Altaf kaalia is the founder as said by hardcore MQM fanatics.

  184. Just to let you know there were only 15-17 people in first APMSO meetin in 1970s at KU, those should be linked as founders of MQM. Mr Azeem Tariq presented the idea of
    having Mohajirs student org.

    Dont you feel that
    last month Terrorism in karachi has something to do with Bombay raj hotel?
    MQM was targetting land mafia and end up hurting ANP or inderectly pashottons?
    MQM unit offices are out of control from leadership?
    There is time to say bye bye to Saleem Shehzad and his gang?

    Thanks, 4 some what serious comments, i am careless if Altaf’s papa was mufti or pundit.

  185. one thing i dont understand and someone can perhaps answer for me, forgive me for my ignorance btw:

    BB came back to pakistan even though she was in exile right? so whats stopping Altaf Hussein? ive always wondered this. Is he in London by choice or force?

  186. MUTAHAIDA ALTAF GROUP DOES NOT REPRESENT KARACITE!!! AND ITS A RACIAL, REGIONAL PARTY not a POLITICAL or NATIONAL PARTY.

    and in the end… Why, all of a sudden, there were riots in karachi after Mumabai shoot out… Arrival of Saleem Sahad the famous killer/rapist who was famous for his brutality among karachites

    MQM can use a mask to hide its gruesome face todaybut it can never change its past and its evil intentions! MQM is working on Indian directives and everyone knows that very well!!

  187. As regards to MQM damaging Pakhtoons property and killing them,let me tell you one thing. The are doing this cuz they consider Pakhtoons, the only threat to their Badmasheee in karachi. Specially in light of the recently leaked documents in media where an anglo-american plan backed up by india and israel to divide pakistan. I know this is an old known secret but behind the screen, they have been working on this agenda so they can divide pakistan in karachi state,azad baluchistan,punjab,pakhtoonistan and possibly a hindku based area. So in order to achieve that, they have started ground work. Get rid of pakhtoons first, followed by punjabis.. Rest are in very slim number so they wont matter. Unfortunately, they don’t know or have disregarded the history of pakhtoons or they wouldnt have done that, wat russia did in 80’s and US is doing the same msitake now in Afghanistan and pakistan. There is no way, US or any country in this whole wide world can rule Pakhtoons.. Read history and you will know the answer…

  188. One of my stupid friend wrote that if you wear trousers and go to a pakhtoon dominated area and loudly say that I am urdu speaking then he will not return alive. I think if a urdu speaker do the same in FB area and instead say that I am a Pakhtoon, he will be burned alive!!! If you dont believe then I would suggest my learned friend to do this himself (at least we will get rid of one moron from this website)

  189. Why, all of a sudden, there were riots in karachi after Mumabai shoot out… Arrival of Saleem SahZad the famous killer/rapist who was famous for his brutality among karachites

    MQM can use a mask to hide its gruesome face todaybut it can never change its past and its evil intentions! MQM is working on Indian directives and everyone knows that very well!!

  190. QUOTA SYSTEM….. which MQM wont abolish as they have been in co-power for the 2nd time, though they do pretend as if they r fighting for muhajirs rights) and have treated the karachites during those riots of 80 and 90’s
    MQM VS PAKHTOONS
    MQM VS PUNJABIS
    MQM VS PAKHTOONS AND PUNJABIS
    MQM VS SINDHIS
    MQM VS BALUCHIS
    MQM VS MAKRANIS
    MQM VS PPP
    MQM VS JAMAT E ISLAMI

    hmmmmm, I am wondering, whats common in all these riots????

    oops… Its blood and innocent civilians!! Oh or may be the MQM??? nah…. they are angels!!! They Didnt killl scores of people belonging to other ethnic groups but then I shouldn’t complaint cuz they manage to KILL more Muhajirs then any other group..

  191. MQM was founded by Gen Zia and there were few “Buzurg” (Elders) who worked on this idea and one of them was Raees Amrouhi (sadly he was killed by MQM for overstepping of criticiseing ALTAF and the funny news came out as Raees Amrohhi killed by a fan (Yes Milllat ka fan ! lol)

  192. Agar MQM govt mayhay tou azeem Tariq kay murder ko kayoun investigate nahee keeya?

    jo khood awam kay chanday pur UK may gul charay urra raha hay uss nay aab tuk India kee threats ko condemn kayoon nahee keeya?

    Nazia hassan kay saath altaf nay kaya keeya thaa? Aur uss kay ex husband ko uss nay kayoon black mail keeya thaa?

    altaf kis k dur say london may choopa howa hay? AAb tou govt MQM kee hay tou abb dur kiss baat ka?

    MQM altaf group has given more wounds to Karachites then any other party. Zakhum tou bhar jatay hain lakin nisshan reh jatay hain..

  193. KOI ZARA FAROQ SATTAR SAY POCHAY K USKAY LAST LONDON K VISIT MAY ALTAF **** NAY USS K SATH KIA KEYA THA?
    NAHE TOU MAY HE BATA DOON GA.. KAYA KARON, TUMHARAY ALTAF GROUP KAY LOG KHOD HE BAHIR AA KUR, UNDAR KA HAL BATA TAIN HAIN…

  194. AND ALTAF KE X WIFE SAY BHE POCHO K USS NAY DIVORCE Q LE HAY? SONOGAY TO APNI MAA OR BEHNOO KO CHOPA K RAKHOGAY.. MAGAR SHAID NAHE.. Q K IS PARTY K MPA’S KA BAYAN TO AAJ TUK SUB KO YAD HAY… HUM AGAR ALTAF K SATH BEWAFAE KARAIN TO YE AYSA HO GA J SAY, HUM APNE MAA OR BEHNO K SATH ZINA KARAIN….LANUT HAY A C PARTY PUR OR A C ZEHNET WALAY LOGON PUR…

  195. i believe MQM is a bunch of terrorists…
    being a karachitie …i know that they r the biggest expoliters of our rights…
    they have been part & parcel of each and every Govt setup.
    wethear it is rights or lefts of dictatorship.
    they work like a mafia in the city .
    thier sole purpose is to derail the peace of karachi.
    thier sole agenda to hand over karachi to US as a free port now.

  196. Many MQM workers are working for WASOOOLI and BHATA.
    They even biting there own kind, IN There own city they are taking batha and spreading terror.

    MQM should be Banned and pronounced as Terrorist Group.

    MQM vs MQM
    MQM is now vs Public of Karachi.

  197. MQM should be banned all over the country.
    but who would be that courageous to Bell the Cat?

  198. The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Altaf (MQM-A) has been widely accused of human rights abuses since its founding two decades ago. It claims to represent Mohajirs- Urdu-speaking Muslims who fled to Pakistan from India after the 1947 partition of the subcontinent, and their descendants.

    In the mid-1990s, the MQM-A was heavily involved in the widespread political violence that wracked Pakistan’s southern Sindh province, particularly Karachi, the port city that is the country’s commercial capital. MQM-A militants fought government forces, breakaway MQM factions, and militants from other ethnic-based movements. In the mid-1990s, the U.S. State Department, Amnesty International, and others accused the MQM-A and a rival faction of summary killings, torture, and other abuses (see, e.g., AI 1 Feb 1996; U.S. DOS Feb 1996). The MQM-A routinely denied involvement in violence.

  199. The current MQM-A is the successor to a group called the Mohajir Qaumi Movement (MQM) that was founded by Altaf Hussein in 1984 as a student movement to defend the rights of Mohajirs, who by some estimates make up 60 percent of Karachi’s population of twelve million. At the time, Mohajirs were advancing in business, the professions, and the bureaucracy, but many resented the quotas that helped ethnic Sindhis win university slots and civil service jobs. Known in English as the National Movement for Refugees, the MQM soon turned to extortion and other types of racketeering to raise cash. Using both violence and efficient organizing, the MQM became the dominant political party in Karachi and Hyderabad, another major city in Sindh. Just three years after its founding, the MQM came to power in these and other Sindh cities in local elections in 1987 (AI 1 Feb 1996; U.S. DOS Feb 1997, Feb 1999; HRW Dec 1997).

    The following year, the MQM joined a coalition government at the national level headed by Benazir Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), which took power in elections following the death of military leader General Zia ul-Haq. This marked the first of several times in the 1980s and 1990s that the MQM joined coalition governments in Islamabad or in Sindh province. Meanwhile, violence between the MQM and Sindhi groups routinely broke out in Karachi and other Sindh cities (AI 1 Feb 1996; Jane’s 14 Feb 2003).

    In 1992, a breakway MQM faction, led by Afaq Ahmed and Aamir Khan, launched the MQM Haqiqi (MQM-H), literally the “real” MQM. Many Pakistani observers alleged that the MQM-H was supported by the government of Pakistan to weaken the main MQM led by Altaf Hussein, which became known as the MQM-A (Jane’s 14 Feb 2003). Several smaller MQM factions also emerged, although most of the subsequent intra-group violence involved the MQM-A and the MQM-H (AI 1 Feb 1996; U.S. DOS Feb 1999; Jane’s 14 Feb 2003).

  200. Political violence in Sindh intensified in 1993 and 1994 (Jane’s 14 Feb 2003). In 1994, fighting among MQM factions and between the MQM and Sindhi nationalist groups brought almost daily killings in Karachi (U.S. DOS Feb 1995). By July 1995, the rate of political killings in the port city reached an average of ten per day, and by the end of that year more than 1,800 had been killed (U.S. DOS Feb 1996).

    The violence in Karachi and other cities began abating in 1996 as soldiers and police intensified their crackdowns on the MQM-A and other groups (Jane’s 14 Feb 2003). Pakistani forces resorted to staged “encounter killings” in which they would shoot MQM activists and then allege that the killings took place during encounters with militants (U.S. DOS Feb 1996). Following a crackdown in 1997, the MQM-A adopted its present name, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, or United National Movement, which also has the initials MQM (HRW Dec 1997).

    MQM-A leader Hussein fled in 1992 to Britain, where he received asylum in 1999 (Jane’s 14 Feb 2003). The MQM-A is not on the U.S. State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations (U.S. DOS 23 May 2003).

    While the multifaceted nature of the violence in Sindh province in the 1980s and 1990s at times made it difficult to pinpoint specific abuses by the MQM-A, the group routinely was implicated in rights abuses. In 1992 after the Sindh government called in the army to crack down on armed groups in the province, facilities were discovered that allegedly were used by the MQM-A to torture and at times kill dissident members and activists from rival groups. In 1996, Amnesty International said that the PPP and other parties were reporting that some of their activists had been tortured and killed by the MQM-A (AI 1 Feb 1996).

  201. The MQM-A and other factions also have been accused of trying to intimidate journalists. In one of the most flagrant cases, in 1990 MQM leader Hussein publicly threatened the editor of the monthly NEWSLINE magazine after he published an article on the MQM’s alleged use of torture against dissident members (U.S. DOS Feb 1991). The following year, a prominent journalist, Zafar Abbas, was severely beaten in Karachi in an attack that was widely blamed on MQM leaders angered over articles by Abbas describing the party’s factionalization. The same year, MQM activists assaulted scores of vendors selling DAWN, Pakistan’s largest English-language newspaper, and other periodicals owned by Herald Publications (U.S. DOS Feb 1992).

    The MQM-A has also frequently called strikes in Karachi and other cities in Sindh province and used killings and other violence to keep shops closed and people off the streets. During strikes, MQM-A activists have ransacked businesses that remained open and attacked motorists and pedestrians who ventured outside (U.S. DOS Feb 1996; Jane’s 14 Feb 2003).

  202. The MQM-A allegedly raises funds through extortion, narcotics smuggling, and other criminal activities. In addition, Mohajirs in Pakistan and overseas provide funds to the MQM-A through charitable foundations (Jane’s 14 Feb 2003).

    Since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States, the MQM-A has been increasingly critical of Islamic militant groups in Pakistan. The MQM-A, which generally has not targeted Western interests, says that it supports the global campaign against terrorism (Jane’s 14 Feb 2003).

  203. This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the RIC within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.

  205. MQM army?

    The track record of MQM terrorism is not a secret. We can recall their atrocities against their opponents by hanging them by the football poles or by shooting them in cold blood, within the localities of Muhajirs, fortified by huge iron gates. A few were forced to take a bowl of poison. MQM have been blackmailing every Governmemt by way of their number in the Assemblies, instead of cooperating for the welfare of the people. The activists of the party collect Bhatta throughout Karachi and Hyderabad, the major portion of which is shifted to off shore banks in the party accounts. Karachi Steel Mills was also plundered during their tenures. Once upon a time Karachi was a peaceful city and labour from all over the country reached there to earn livelihood without any fear. It was only when MQM was established and the Pathan and Punjabi labour class was compelled to migrate from Karachi for fear of their lives. Altaf Bhayya has come up yet with a dangerous idea of setting up “Haq Parast army” to fight terrorism, which means to grant them a licence for carrying out terrorist activities openly which would lead yet to a more terrorism in Karachi.

  206. Workers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement have been booked in the murder case of a police officer and his armed guard who were ambushed in a Lines Area locality on Thursday evening, officials said on Friday.

    Capital City Police Officer Waseem Ahmed confirmed that the suspects nominated in the FIR (308/2010) were associated with the MQM. However, an MQM spokesman declined to comment.

    Inspector Nasir-ul-Hasan, the SHO of the Brigade police station, who was known for the active role he played in the ‘Karachi operation’ of the 1990s, along with his armed guard, Khurram Butt, was targeted when he was returning to the police station in his private jeep.

    The FIR was registered on behalf of the state at the Brigade police station under Sections 302 (premeditated murder), 324 (attempted murder), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 392 (punishment for robbery) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code read with Section 7-A of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.

    “Those nominated in the FIR are Shabbir alias Dhobi, Taqi Butt alias Mamu, Nadim, Asif alias Chitta and their eight to 10 accomplices,” said an official at the Brigade police station.

    He said that so far no arrest had been made in the case.

    In his brief response to Dawn’s queries, the CCPO said: “Being the chief of the city police, I assure everyone that the investigations would be carried out purely on merit and no one should have any doubt about it.”

    The officials said that initial investigations into the killing of the Brigade SHO and his guard showed that at least six assailants took part in the attack.

    By thoroughly examining the crime-scene and the bullet-riddled vehicle from different angles, police investigators concluded that at least six assailants sprayed the private jeep of Inspector Nasir-ul-Hasan with bullets.

    “The assailants used sophisticated weapons of different kinds,” said Investigation SP Arshad Kamal Kayani. “We came to know that they (assailants) left the scene on foot and didn’t use any vehicles to escape. However, these findings are based on initial investigations.”

    The SP replied in the negative when asked whether the investigators succeeded in obtaining any eyewitness account to prepare the sketches of the assailants.

    When asked whether it was not odd that nobody saw the assailants in the congested neighbourhood near the German Hotel in Lines Area, police officials observed that fear mostly kept people from sharing information about such incidents with the law-enforcers.

    Inspector Nasir-ul-Hasan along with several other policemen was booked in a case pertaining to the killing of peasant Rasool Bux Brohi in a staged encounter. He remained in prison for many months in this case.

    Meanwhile, Provincial Police Officer (PPO) Sultan Salahuddin Babar Khattak and other senior police officers attended the funeral prayers of slain constable Khurram Butt at the Police Headquarters, Garden.

    The PPO also announced an amount of Rs2 million each as compensation to the bereaved families.

  207. Reports about Altaf Hussain being ill ‘baseless’, ‘unfounded': MQM

    The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has rejected reports regarding its chief Altaf Hussain being seriously ill as ‘baseless’ and ‘unfounded.’

    Senior MQM leader, Mustafa Azizabadi, said Hussain’s health in fine and he has been attending regular party meeting and participating in other activities.

    When asked reports regarding Hussain undergoing treatment in Germany, Azizabadi said: “These are all rumours spread by ‘enemies’ and nothing more.”

    MQM insiders said that Hussain is likely to address the Punjab convention at Lahore on April 25 by telephone, The News reports.

    Hussain’s suspicious absence from Pakistan’s political scene amidst the recent chaos over the 18th Constitutional Amendment bill has raised questions over his well being.

    The MQM’s silence over the party chief’s whereabouts has only added fuel to rumours.

    When asked about the issue, MQM spokesperson, Salahuddin, neither confirmed nor denied reports regarding Hussain being ill.

    The spokesman said that Hussain had addressed the party on March 16 and was in good health at the time.

    According to sources, former Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President Shujaat Hussain had recommended a homeopathic doctor in Germany to Hussain.

    The MQM chief also did not meet President Asif Ali Zardari during his recent trip to London, and sources said that Hussain has been under medical treatment since that time. (ANI)

  208. ALTAF PLACED IN HISTORY AS “HISTORY-SHEETER”.QATAL-E-AZAM OF URDU SPEAKING LIVE IN PAKISTAN.BIGGER LIAR,CHEATER AND FUND RAISER OF PAKISTAN.INNOCENT PEOPLES ARE DIEING FOR MQM AND ALTAF LIVES IN LONDON AS “DON”. PLEASE WRITE YOUR COMMENTS.

  209. Dear Brother and Sisters

    Altaf, Zardari and others are traitor of pakistan.
    They just want money and money.
    Altaf is doing nothing, no industry no company.
    How he become so much powerfull in karachi.
    The party which has ethinic origin can not work for ordinary people.
    They and ANP are parasites of our culure.
    Please Please Awake up and stop talkig for them
    Thank you

  210. I can see a lively debate has been triggered following appearance of video speech of Führer of Mohajir Qaumi Movement in which Altaf is invisible but his ready made audience obediently sits in a street of his HQ in Karachi.

    Mohajir Qaumi Movement was a brain child of moron Zia ul Haq. The creation of this Frankenstein monster was an ulterior move of vile dictator Zia.

    Ever since MQM’s inception, Sindh has not seen peace getting a foothold. Many of the front ranking leaders of this outfit who are now sitting in Sindh and federal parliaments have been indicted criminals but because there is no rule of law they are all roaming scot free. The best examples are Ishrat Ibad who is the governor of the troubled province. Waseem Akhtar was home minister and he was executing the carnage in Karachi on 12th May.

    Altaf Hussain is a blackmailor par excellence. He unleashes his thugs to murder people in target killings and then issues statements protesting against those and demanding justice.

    PPP leaders are cowards and in particular Mr Asif Zardari who has surrendered whole Sindh to these thugs. MQM claims Karachi has been mandated to it in recent elections and so they become sole champions of Karachi. This is a ridiculous claim. In Sindh Assembly PPP has clear majority and MQM should realistically be sitting on the opposition benches but then when MQM has been in opposition? They have always been, by hook or crook, been in the government.

    Every one knows that significant number of seats in the parliament and provincial assembly are engineered by thugs of MQM. If you deduct these seats the real strength of MQM in assemblies will be exposed.

    I will blame press and electronic media who appear to be duty bound to give importance out of proportion to MQM operatives.

  211. ALTAF HUSSAIN TALKS ABOUT POORS, AS HE HAS BEEN REMAIN IN ALL GOVTS INCLUDING MUSHARAF. THE TERRORIST LEADER OF TERRORIST PARTY CONVICTED IN SO MANY MURDRER CASES, AS TORCHER CELL FOUND IN 92 OPERATION IN MQM CENTRES, INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE BEING TORCHERED THERE ALSO KILLING OF DOZEN PEOPLE ON ARRIVAL OF CHIEF JUSTICE ON 12 MAY, WE HATE HIM AND HIS PARTY, MQM SHULD BANNED AND ITS LEADERSHIP SHULD BE IN THE JAIL AND HANG IMMEDIATELY.

  212. I am honored that so many people have liked the comments floated by me.The reason which comes to mind is that the truth in which ever form it appears shall always be appreciated by the people having a broader vision.
    I have read the APEX COURT decision of Canada against the MQM which declared it a terrorist organization but the so called leaders (TERRORISTS) are always in a state of denial.
    Even after a period of 62 years they still call them MUHAJIRS rather then calling themselves PAKISTANIS.They feel ashamed of it.
    Now the KALIAY thinks that he can enter Punjab. Fools

  213. I pity those who sit in Nine Zero like herd of sheep and listen to incoherent and hysterical speeches of Supremo. Isn’t it funny when he claims that his organisation is a beacon to the whole country. He has changed the name to Mutahida but the fact is that his philosophy is based around Muhajir Qaumi Movement. His policies evolve around his hard core constituency located in Karachi and Hyderabad. He claims to be the sole custodian of Karachi and conveniently forgets that there are Sindhis, Baluchis, Punjabis and Pushtoons are also living in there. Besides there are many other nationalities. MQM is truly a fascist organisation who has been responsible of 12th May carnage and has killed scores of its opponents in recent wave of target killings

  214. a statement from Faiza Gabol (altaf’s ex-wife)
    “altaf is 1 inch and enable to become a father so i want divorce”
    (source BBC news)

    so how can he become a legal or illegal father? LOL
    there is a big question mark on afza.
    lets help her find her father…shell we?

  215. WHO knows that afza is his daughter,
    my dog also claimed the father hood of afza.

    if he (iltaf) can be a father and have some thing underneath, why his wife left her?
    he is a certified ہیجڑہ
    don’t you see when he talk he is talking in swings and bounds……سر اور لے لگاتا ہے۔۔۔۔
    he is a gay :) LOL

  216. الطاف کالیا۔۔۔۔کہتا ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔
    “او جاگیردارو۔۔اپنا ناپ بتائو۔ بوریاں ہم تیار کریں گے”۔

    لاکھ دی لعنت تیرے جمن اوتے

  217. Rectified Guy and Zorro are the same guy LOL
    you can tell by the way he spell in both posts.

    kharachi was the capital of Pakistan, and well before mqm was born it always generated the 78% of Revenue of Pakistan. so why you criminals are taking credit of that revenue?
    if you bring a puppet in Swaal yah hay and make him say that there wasn’t jinnah pur map found in mqm head quarter…..do you think people believed on you or him?
    who is doing target killing?

    EVERY single general, EVERY single Waddeera and every one who has little power, mqm has been sitting on their manhood and do the politic.
    if you eat , sit , sleep, walk , or even fucked by these wadderras and generals then why you are speaking against them?
    don’t you think it is نمک حرامی۔????
    you are eating in plate and making hole in the same plate.
    mqm’s politics starts from by sitting on army dictator’s c0ck and ended on wadderra’s and jageerdar’s c0ck.

    why do you think mqm is last hope?
    we DO NOT WANT to separate target killing all over Pakistan, بھتہ خوری all around the country. we do not want بوری بند لاشیں۔
    do you think we have forgotten iltaf kalia’s statement when he slipped his tongue and said to Punjab people.
    او جاگیر دارو اپنی بوریوں کا ناپ تیار رکھو۔ سلوا ہم دیں گے۔
    that is a confession of being a criminal and accepting and owning all those murders which these bastards have committed.
    you are NOT THE LAST HOPE. and actually you are the HOPELESS BEGGARS.

  218. ALTAF is biggest liar on this earth.

    What he done for Karachi since he controlled the Karachi and Hyderabad? Just ruined the both cities, create Bhatta culture, Badmashee. He inject terriorism in both cities and fear.He is not sincere with the people because he is an agent.

    People of Pakistan ! Please sake of Allah try to understand how you can change your life and Pakistan. Please for sake of Allah don’t bring in power those people again. They will cheat you again and again. They are happy living outside the country.

    I’ll request you people of Pakistan please don’t give them vote. Ask yourself which candidate is close to Allah. Whose character is clean and not involved in crruption.

    O people of Pakistan you can change your Qismat. Stand up for change and get rid all those Ghunda Parties, Crrupted parties. if you vote again those same cruppted people. You never get yourself out from any problems.

    Don’t be fear anyone except Allah
    Allah bless on Pakistan and their People.

  219. This party MQM is not a political party but it is an Organisation…..
    An organisation for the Mahajers. …… There so called leader Altaf Hussain is a biggest layer and a terrorist on earth…….Its ridicules to call this man a Pakistani leader……..He has a picture with British Passport and with proud laugh……….Shame on you Altaf……You are making only these idiots fool who are sitting on ground to listen your speech like chickens or goats. But the time will tell you. No Punjabi will give you vote. You are only in Karachi and Hayderaabad.

  220. Altaf is the biggest fraud of the century.One is surprised at the learned lot of Karachi which knowing support him.The first reason which comes to mind is that may be they are all afraid and since Altaf and his party workers are well known GUNDAS of Karachi therefore the learned lot of Karachi are forced to say yes to him.It is also known to everyone that MQM is a GUNDA force in Karachi which collects JAGA tax from the industrialist on the name of party fund.
    His speech has always been like an idiot speaking out of turn without any concrete reason.Now he is in favor of the Judiciary against which he killed 48 people when the current Chief Justice was visiting Karachi during his address to the Karachi Bar.
    The biggest chameleon of the century.The country desperately needs to get rid of such people who leading lives abroad and controlling the veins here.
    Idiots are the people who vote for such a man who is running the show to one day break Pakistan. In fact he is known as a agent of British and American government who acts on their signals.

  221. Official report blames MQM Altaf’s militants for target killings

    By Umar Cheema

    ISLAMABAD: The first official diagnosis, prognosis and prescription on the highly destabilising target killings in Karachi is now available as a seven-member high-level official committee has prepared its report blaming political parties and naming only the MQM Altaf (Militant Qatil Mafia) which it says has a militant wing which is tasked to create law and order situations to achieve its political ends.

    For the first time all the security agencies in Karachi have collectively pinpointed the problems and have admitted that as many as 83 police officers involved in earlier operations against MQM have been eliminated in target killings, which has adversely affected the morale of police force.

    The report ordered by the Interior Ministry was prepared by a committee which had all the official security stakeholders in Karachi, including the Sindh Police, Special Branch, IB, ISI, Rangers and the Interior Ministry.

    It is now said to be lying with the prime minister for action but its recommendations are almost impossible to implement, including de-weaponisation of Karachi, registration of all aliens, insulation of police from political influence and others.

    A security expert said it is for the first time a comprehensive picture, and a blunt one, has been presented by the report but whether any action can be taken is a big question mark.

    Federal Interior Secretary, Chaudhry Qamar Zaman, confirmed to The News that the report was ready but said he had not seen any follow-up as yet, saying the interior minister has gone to Karachi to find a way out in the wake of the current spate of target killings.

    MQM’s parliamentary leader, Dr Farooq Sattar, rejected the party’s involvement in target killings. As far the killings of police officers involved in Karachi operation, he said this issue needed separate treatment and a comparison should be drawn between the number of casualties the party suffered in that operation and the police killings later on.

    To be fair to all parties the entire text of the three-page report is being reproduced below. The copy available with The News has been doctored by our sources to the extent that the dates, file numbers and signatures of the members have been deleted. The text is, however, complete with recommendations:

    Subject: Report on Target killings in Karachi

    1. Minister for interior constituted a committee under the additional secretary, Ministry of Interior consisting of members from Sindh Police, Special Branch, IB, ISI and Rangers to identify target killings which took place during the last six months in Karachi and investigate into the circumstances with a view to find its solution.

    2. The committee invited affectees of target killings. The members of the committee assembled at NCMC office, Karachi and interviewed scores of affectees, interested groups and NGOs etc, home secretary, Sindh, DG Rangers, Sindh, IG Police Sindh, CCPO Karachi were also interviewed to assess the situation.

    3. Politically motivated target killing in Karachi appeared in 90’s when MQM Haqiqi parted its ways with MQM Altaf and continues to stall the landscape of Karachi with varying intensity to date. It is a turf war going on amongst political groups to have their say in the affairs of Karachi. MQM has won 17 out of 20 NA seats in Karachi and wants to keep its hold. ANP has for the first time won two provincial seats in Pakhtun dominated areas and wants to consolidate gains. Lyari Town with its Baloch population is a stronghold of PPP. Migration from Swat/Fata to Karachi is a cause of concern for the dominant ethnic group in Karachi. MQM is trying to expand its influence in Rehmanabad, Junejo Town, Khuda ki Basti, Gutter Bagheecha etc in non-Urdu speaking population by bringing in new settlement of Urdu speaking people in these areas. This is creating resentment in Pakhtuns and Balochs who feel that they will lose their electoral strength due to change in demography. New settlements also attract land mafia which further complicates the situation.

    4. Eighty-three police officers involved in earlier operations against MQM have been eliminated in target killing which has adversely affected the morale of police force.

    5. Political parties, specially the MQM, has its militant wing which at times is tasked to create law and order situation for achieving political ends.

    6. Following proposals are formulated by the committee to address the situation in Karachi:

    a) Conference of all stakeholders in Karachi to work out code of ethics for mutual co-existence.

    b) Formation of peace committee at provincial/zonal level headed by senior officers for identifying trouble spots in the respective areas and to address the issue before it flares up. Committees can be expanded to police station level.

    c) Merit-based policing with institutional arrangements to insulate police from extraneous influence and its capacity building.

    d) Media may be involved to highlight the suffering of families of the victims of target killing and to expose the elements involved in it.

    e) Strict ban on conversion of amenity plots for residential purposes and removal of all illegal encroachments.

    f) Registration of aliens.

    g) De-weaponisation of Karachi.

    While the MQM was singled out in the report for having militant wings which were used at times, Dr Farooq Sattar vehemently denied it.

    When asked by The News as to why the representatives of these agencies had highlighted the MQM’s involvement in target killing more than land mafia, Farooq Sattar said it could be an effort to distract attention from the land mafia.

    He said the MQM has lost 140 workers in target killings in the space of one year. He said the Sindh chief minister has formed a law and order committee with representatives of all ethnic groups as its members. The committee would jointly work with anti-encroachment cell and meet every fortnightly to review the situation.

    Another MQM leader, who requested not to be named, termed the allegations against the party in the report as totally baseless and having no link with reality. He said efforts to blackmail MQM were made in every period. The successive governments, however, made alliances with the MQM that proved that the party had no role in killings, he asserted.

  222. Any one surprised?

    Now that official report confirms everyone’s suspicion that it was indeed criminal gang MQM that was involved in these
    targeted killings just to make an issue and blackmail the government and create unrest and ethnic strife in the city by creating difference and disputes and disharmony among different ethnicities. MQM is so good at play this dirty game. We obviously have to keep in mind that its not the first time MQM have been involved in killing of pathans, In past too it have been actively involved in Killing and torturing and torching and arson of poor Pathans and their livelihood .

    We all remember how large number of Pathan lpg shop owners,truck,taxi,minibus,rickshaw drivers, Baluchi Quetta tea shop owners/Tandoor walas/peanut/dry fruit sellers(on pushcart)/rag pickers/mochis(coblers) have been killed and their businesses and livelihood burnt by MQM’s unit/sector terrorists in recent past.Details of some of those horrible incidents is posted below :

    http://aaj.tv/news/National/135040_detail.html

    http://express.com.pk/epaper/PoPupwindow.aspx?newsID=1100611673&Issue=NP_LHE&Date=20090426

    Just watch this news report about target killings in Karachi since 2009. It reveals some of the details of how police and law enforcement officials involved in PPP’s operation against MQM Altaf’s terrorist in 90s were ambushed,hunted and gunned down by MQM Altaf’s unit and sector terrorist and mentions bori bund lash(dead body dumped in jute bag,a typical modus operandi of MQM Altaf’s murderers) . It also mentions dozens of Haqiqi workers who have been killed over the years by MQM Altaf.

  223. “…That Karachi burns whenever BHAI does not like something is a common sight. Innocent people die yet nothing happens. Strange? PRETTY STRANGE….yes I know. How is BHAI any different to a Don from the Italian Mafia? Nationality, perhaps? Don’t underestimate BHAI by the way, he is a British National!! YAY! A British DON controlling Pakistani gangsters. On second, third and fourth thoughts, that sounds very VERY disgusting and condemnable….”

    The Difference between Taliban and MQM

  224. Although Shahi Sayed recently said that Karachi police don’t have guts to go after terrorists of MQM Altaf but it seems Sindh Police, Special Branch, IB, ISI, Rangers and the Interior Ministry atleast got some courage and finally specifically pinpointed that MQM Altaf is responsible.

    MQM Altaf often use a vague and confusing term “Land Mafia is responsible” to cover and hide its own crimes and this report clearly pinpoints that it is actually MQM Altaf itself which is ‘Land mafia’ and is busy creating new settlements on illegally encroached public parks,play grounds and amenity plots all around karachi. (Media had been raising this issue of encroachment of public parks in Karachi for quite sometimes but MQM used to divert the attention by blaming it on ‘unknown land mafia’. Its hallmark of MQM to use such vague terms like “Namaloom afrad(Unknown people)” “awami rad-e-amal(people’s wrath and reaction)” to cover the crimes that it commits using its unit and sector terrorists located on illegally encroached parks all around Karachi.

    Video clip in which Shahi Sayed clearly said that Police don’t have guts to touch MQM’s terrorist because MQM is responsible for targeted killings of many police officers involved in PPP’s clean up operation against MQM’s terrorism in Karachi and this interior ministry’s official report clearly reveals all this has adversely affected the morale of police force.

    Some anonymous black swat teams need to be formed and trained which could go after MQM type organised criminals gangs without any hesitation and fear of retaliation from MQMized terrorists.

  225. Cowasjee articles about MQM’s encroachments of hundreds of acres of public parks/amenity plots and play grounds all around Karachi,where MQMized unit terrorists demarcated plots and distributed them among the families of those notorious MQMized terrorists that were wiped out during operation clean up.These articles by Cowasjee also mention about 175 MQM’s unit/sector offices(terror cells) illegally built inside public parks .

    The Take Over of Karachi City Parks By The Land Mafia aka terror gang MQM

    MQM the real Land Mafia

  226. I have been saying this all along; Mustaqil Qoumi Museebat is the root of all problems in Karachi and if continued to operate unchecked, these folks will facilitate our enemies to march into Pakistan. The sooner they are buried into the ground the better for all of us.

  227. MQM may be the root of problems in Karachi. They hold only 7% seats in the National Assembly. Do all other members of the National Assembly belong to some class of angels? Why don’t you criticize those as well who are the root of problems in the whole of our beloved Pakistan?

  228. Karachi is the biggest city and gateway to Pakistan and hence the operation clean-up starts from here.

    کراچی (نمائندہ خصوصی) بریگیڈ تھانے کے ایس ایچ او انسپکٹر ناصر الحسن اور ان کے محافظ خرم بٹ کے قتل میں نامزد 8 دہشت گردوں کو متحدہ قومی موومنٹ کی قیادت نے کراچی سے فرار کرا دیا ہے۔ دہشت گردوں کو لندن قیادت سے رابطے میں رہنے کی ہدایت کی گئی ہے۔ مقدمے میں نامزد 2 اہم دہشت گرد حیدرآباد میں مقامی ذمہ داروں کے ہاں روپوش ہیں۔ تفصیلات کے مطابق یکم جولائی کو لائنز ایریا جرمن چوک کے قریب گھات لگائے دہشت گردوں نے اندھا دھند فائرنگ کر کے بریگیڈ تھانے کے ایس ایچ او انسپکٹر ناصرالحسن اور ہیڈ کانسٹیبل خرم بٹ کو شہید کر دیا تھا، جس کے بعد کراچی آپریشن میں سرگرم افسران نے اپنے پیٹی بند بھائی کے قتل کا مقدمہ متحدہ قومی موومنٹ لائنز ایریا سیکٹر کے دہشت گردوں آصف چٹا، تقی بٹ عرف تقی ماموں، شبیر دھوبی، ندیم اور طارق سمیت 8 دہشت گردوں کے خلاف درج کرایا تھا۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ مقدمہ درج ہونے سے قبل ہی متحدہ نے اپنے اہم دہشت گردوں کو روپوش کرا دیا تھا۔ مقدمے میں نامزد ہونے کے بعد ان دہشت گردوں کو متحدہ نے فوری طور پر کراچی چھوڑنے کے احکامات دیئے۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ لندن قیادت کے حکم پر متحدہ کے دہشت گرد کراچی چھوڑ کر اندرون سندھ اور پنجاب چلے گئے ہیں۔ انسپکٹر ناصر الحسن کے مقدمہ قتل میں نامزد 2 دہشت گردوں تقی ماموں اور آصف چٹا کے بارے میں ذرائع کا دعویٰ ہے کہ وہ حیدرآباد میں روپوش ہیں۔ تقی ماموں اور آصف چٹا متحدہ کے انتہائی خطرناک دہشت گرد ہیں، انہیں حیدرآباد کے ذمہ داروں کی تحویل میں رکھا گیا ہے۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ متحدہ نے دونوں دہشت گردوں کو ان کی مرضی کے مطابق روپوش ہونے نہیں دیا کیونکہ پارٹی قیادت کو خدشہ تھا کہ یہ دہشت گرد پولیس کے ہتھے چڑھ جاتے تو پولیس ان سے بعض اہم راز اگلوا سکتی تھی۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ تقی ماموں اور آصف چٹا سے اگر سانحہ 12 مئی کے حوالے سے تحقیقات کی جائے تو بعض اہم معلومات حاصل ہو سکتی ہیں۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ لندن قیادت نے جنید اور حمید عرف سائنسدان کو بھی روپوش ہونے کا حکم دیا ہے۔ متحدہ کے دونوں دہشت گرد انسپکٹر ناصر الحسن کے قتل کے مقدمے میں نامزد نہیں ہیں لیکن متحدہ کو شبہ ہے کہ ایف آئی آر میں جو دیگر کا لفظ استعمال ہوا ہے اس کو بنیاد بنا کر انہیں پولیس گرفتار کر سکتی ہے۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ جنید متحدہ کے بدنام دہشت گرد جاوید لنگڑا کا بھائی ہے جبکہ حمید عرف سائنسدان سیکٹر کا اہم رکن ہے۔ متحدہ کی لندن قیادت نے مقدمے میں نامزد دہشت گردوں کو ہدایات کی ہیں کہ وہ صرف ان سے رابطے میں رہیں اور سیکٹر کے دیگر ذمہ داروں سے کوئی رابطہ نہ رکھیں۔ یہی وجہ ہے کہ مذکورہ دہشت گردوں نے اپنے موبائل فون نمبر بند کئے ہوئے ہیں اور نئے نمبروں سے صرف لندن قیادت سے رابطے میں ہیں۔

  230. Haider Abbas daikh aur faislaa kar Reply with quote
    Yesterday on ARY in the show ‘Off the Record’ with Kashif Abbasi he interviewed Imran Khan and MQM MNA Mr. Haider Abbas Rizvi. In the heated debate around the 26th minute of the telecast Haider Abbas Rizvi entangles with Imran Khan challenging him to prove with documentary evidence that the Canadian Courts may have declared MQM as a terrorist organization taking the challenge to vacate his MNA if he were to bring documentary proof to support the claim
    Click over to on Awaz.tv to watch the show – fast forward to 26:40 minute marker, where Haider Abbas Rivzi brings up the Canadian challenge.
    With all the confidence brimming from TV interview maybe its now time to help refresh Mr. Rizvi’s memory with full references to a few Canadian Federal court rulings questioning MQM as a terrorist organization
    MOHAMMED KASHIF OMER vs THE MINISTER OF CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION – May 3, 2007
    The decision stated –
    Having reviewed the Board’s reasons in light of the evidence presented, I find that the conclusion of the Board to the effect that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the MQM is an organization that engages, has engaged or will engage in terrorism, is reasonable.

    The National Post reported the story
    The head of the Quebec branch of a Pakistani political party is facing deportation after the Federal Court of Canada ruled he belonged to an organization that committed terrorism. The judge upheld the deportation of Mohammed Kashif Omer, a resident of Montreal, on the grounds he is a member of the Mothaidda Quami Movement, or MQM.
    A quick search of the Federal Courts of Canada website reveal a few more cases with MQM can be seen here
    Iftikhar Shoaq Jalil vs The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration
    Naeem v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration)
    Jilani v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration)
    Ali v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration) (F.C.),
    Mohammed v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration) (F.C.)
    Baqri v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration) (T.D.)

    Though these are all federal court rulings and it may technically be incorrect to say that Canadian Supreme Court has declared MQM as a terrorist organization. However, since the federal court judgment has not been challenged in the Supreme Court of Canada, the judgment of the Federal Court stands throughout the territory of Canada as a precedence and hence the interpretation would easily signify that MQM may actually be a terrorist organization
    Is it time to show Mr. Haider Rizvi the door out of the Parliament – or will he unabashedly cling onto his seat?

  232. MQM terrorist org by Canada court
    Canada, 18 July 2007 (National Post): The head of the Quebec branch of a Pakistani political party is facing deportation after the Federal Court of Canada ruled he belonged to an organization [Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) led by London, UK-based Criminal Terrorist Altaf Hussain] that committed terrorism.

    The judge upheld the deportation of Mohammed Kashif Omer, a resident of Montreal, on the grounds he is a member of the Muttahida Quami Movement or MQM. [The MQM terrorist party is based in Karachi, Pakistan. MQM is a crime partner of Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q), another terrorist party based in Pakistan. Criminal Terrorist Shaukat Aziz is the head of PML-Q. Criminal Terrorist Tyrant Pervez Musharraf, a mass murderer of thousands of innocent citizens of Pakistan and Afghanistan, is the President of both the MQM Mafia and the PML-Q Mafia].

    It is the second time this year Canadian courts have ruled the MQM party meets the legal definition of a terrorist organization.

    Mr. Omer is one of dozens of Pakistanis whom Canadian immigration authorities are trying to deport because of their involvement in the MQM.

    Despite being blamed for the kidnapping, torture and murder of its political rivals in Pakistan, the MQM has opened a Canadian branch called MQM-Canada.

    Members of the group have worked on Conservative election campaigns, met [Canadian] Prime Minister Stephen Harper and recently hosted a [MQM] conference in Calgary [Canada].

    Conservative MP Art Hanger spoke at the June 8-10 MQM-Canada convention, which was attended by several Pakistanis who are being deported for their alleged involvement in terrorism. Mr. Hanger said he did not support the [MQM] group. Conservative MLA Shiraz Shariff also attended. He said yesterday he was unaware Canadian courts had deemed the MQM a terrorist organization. “Why are we as a nation then allowing them to have a congregation here?” he said.

    Among the speakers at the convention was Mr. Omer, who presented a report on the “achievements and future strategy” of the Montreal office of MQM, according to the [MQM] group’s Web Site.

    Mr. Omer has no immigration status in Canada. A Canada Border Services Agency spokesman, Erik Paradis, said the court ruling means that the deportation order against Mr. Omer is now in effect.

    The MQM is a Pakistani political party that is part of [unconstitutional, illegal, self-appointed] President Pervez Musharraf’s ruling coalition. The Canadian MQM branch has never been accused of illegal activities but in Pakistan the party has been blamed for widespread violence, most recently in May 󞪇] when gunfights between the MQM and anti-government demonstrators left more than 40 dead.

    MQM officials deny any role in attacks and say they are victims of misinformation spread by Pakistani authorities. Canada’s Security Intelligence Review Committee has been looking into complaints from MQM members that immigration authorities have unfairly branded them as terrorists.

    Mr. Omer came to Canada in 1998 and was granted refugee status but in2005 immigration officials said he could not remain in Canada “because he knowingly and for a long period of time belonged to an organization that has engaged in terrorism.”

    In Pakistan, Mr. Omer had been a member of the MQM and its student wing from 1987 to 1998. He denied any involvement with the MQM in Canada but eventually acknowledged he was in charge of the MQM’s Quebec office.

    The Immigration and Refugee Board said: “Mr. Omer’s reasons for trying to hide that, in Canada, he is responsible for the Montreal section of the MQM-Canada lead me to believe that he knew that his party was committing many violent acts.”

    He appealed the decision to the [Canada] Federal Court, arguing that the MQM is not a terrorist organization and that the violence was committed by rogue elements in the [MQM] party, but the court was not convinced.

  233. Iss kii baat ALTAF GROUP nahi kartaa

    Today the nation is observing blackday against MQM’s brutality against lawyers’ movement. It was so horrible incident that 47 people were killed. Sindh govt has announced mourning day..
    If MQM was not involved in this killing program n then why…..
    1- waseem akhtar and babar ghauri of MQM had threaten lawyers by saying”karachi is our city and we will not let any body arrange their show here”
    2- the vedios of 12th may show MQM’s flag bearing workers firing on the roads
    3-aaj tv ‘s karachi office was attacked by flag beareres of MQM
    4- on falak naz tower, opposite to airport, mqm armed workers were placed on top roof to attack CJ’s procession
    5- imran, qazi and all supporters of lawyers were detained and restricted to enter in sindh
    6- containers placed on all major roads so the barbarian hunting made easy
    7- court was seiged by MQM rally to restrict lawyers out of it
    Though MQM issued a list of 13 workers which were killed on 12(h may but 3 of them are lawyers and few from other parties
    If MQM wasn’t the murdere then why they were so scared of 12th may’s holiday,??? They requested to ANP to take back strike call. They put pressure on sindh govt, even threaten to leave govt to return holiday decision
    We demand judicial inquiry of this incident and those animals shoud be hanged in open. They are taliban of karachi and they should be equally treated .

  234.

  236. Shame shame MQM Reply with quote
    Ye aik Mohibevatan Pakistani ne kuch batain likhi hen woh zaraa mulhaiza farmye.

    I am liivng in Karachi for the last 24 years and have watched very closely the rising of MQM. You will be upset, but it is the truth, that MQM from the start was trained to be a terrorist organization. It has been involved in terror activities and all people of Karachi (including yourself) if they are honest to their Creator only in their hearts.
    You can now invite people to your public meetings. But i was fortunate enough to be present at one of the meeting in which altaf hussain adressed directly ( not like he does now a days over telephone). I remember ( you must be remembering too) when he advised muhajirs to sell tvs and ornaments and to buy Klashunkof ( spelling of Kalashankuf, you must be knowing well). Your leader’s speech is recorded and available for people who may try to deny it.I know so many of Altaf’s personnal body guards who have been brutally murdered by MQM itself just becasue they did not want to continue anymore once they got married. One even escaped to Malaysia but he was not spared once he visited Karachi again after 3 years. MQM is exactly working like a mafia and everyone knows it.
    I also know the fact that MQM has never been out of power since its creation by ISI of Zia mererly to counter PPP in Sind. Since then it has been a tool of dictators and serving their interests till now.
    Anybody who beats (what to talk of killing) an innocent human being is to be condemned. May it be Pathan or any other ethnic group. Same applies to Muhajirs as well( that you call yourselves. icall them pakistanis). It makes no sense that you start the same thing that you deplored yourself earlier.
    A simple question is that by retaliating in the same tone, rather taking it to extreme ends, have the Karachites been provided relief or their sufferings have increased? Only differnec is that they are now facing more wrath from their own people.
    The KEY is that MQM’s survival is in generating hatered and differences among people living in Karachi becasue it gets votes on ethinicism and linguistic differnces. So it will never become a genuine political force.
    One day Mr. Waseem you will be facing your real Lord Allah SWT in your grave like me. Be afraid of that day. Altaf is not your lord like you have made it.
    Comment by Mohsin Jami on April 21, 2008 @ 1:10 pm

    Karachi had always been a freindly city for all. The credit does not go to MQM for free roaming of ladies.
    Most of the people get the impression about MQM as they say “Meetha Meetha Hup hup and Karwa Karwa thu thu”. You blame every bad thing on Agencies and every good thing to your credit. Inspite that you have been in power for the last 05 years and vitually for the last 08 years. Even after such a long period of time blaming agencies does not seem appropriate. MQM i believe has still not come out of the aura of Student politics.
    Now about Mohajir (i take it as a crap), all mohajirs are Pakistanis and moreover now your QUAID-E-Tehreek has adopted citizenship of UK and he is no more a Mohajir. So please get out of this. Mohajir is just an identification, trust me all the people of Pakistan consider you as much Pakistanis as any other.
    By saying HAHA people usually avoid answer to hard questions. My question was very simple i.e. have you ever donated to Mutahidda, What is the account number i would like to donate also. Another question : Why cant MQM sit in opposition why they are bent upon having coalition with PPP ( a party of feudal lords), is’nt it a sheer deviation to your menifesto which is against feudals. Why MQM needs ministeries of Local bodies, works etc. the simple reason is to mint money and donate to support your international office. I will take MQM as a serious political party if they sit in the opposition this time.

  238. Ye aik muhajir bhai k karname hen.. aur iss mein us ne confess kia he k 12 May 09 ko who ALTAF hussain se bhi in touch tha jab AAJ TV pe hamla kia tha MQM k terrorist ne:

    Dear Friends,

    When I sent you my last e.mail, I received some supporting replies from my colleagues. But, 95% of replies were full of criticism against me and some even with slurs and foul language. Then, I received some anonymous threatening phone calls to be ready to face the consequences of injustice done to various people during my tenure as Secretary. All this resulted in scary dreams at night for. My family and I feel insecure these days.

    I was visiting a friend of mine, some senior bureaucrat, at his office the other day and a staff member of Ministry of Information passed by. He gave me such an ugly look and intentionally spitted towards me. I have now realized that majority of staff and officers of Ministry of I. & B. don’t like me.

    My conscious blames me for all I have done with my junior colleagues during my service. So, I, Syed Anwar Mehmood, former Secretary Information and Broadcasting, hereby want to make a number of confessions.
    My ladder to success
    • I was groomed by the clever personalities like Salman Farooqi and Capt. Esani with whom I served at the Prime Minister’s Secretariat as Press Secretary to Prime Minister Junejo. Later, our gang scattered and we served in different departments and benefited ourselves from the national exchequer.
    • During Benazir’s first tenure I tried to associate myself with Asif Zardari but failed due to my past’s exposure.
    • I later joined the Nawaz Sharif camp and became Press Secretary to the Prime Minister.
    • During Nawaz Sharif-Ghulam Ishaq tussle of 1993 I became staunch CHAMCHA of the Sharifs and was later awarded the PIOship. During Nawaz’s second tenure I got lucrative postings in the Information Ministry. I used to regularly visit ABBA JEE at Sharif’s Raiwind farm.
    • When Pervez Musharraf came into power in 1999, I turned my coat and exploited my ‘Urdu speaking card’ and got out of turn promotion and became the Additional Secretary in-charge of the Ministry of Information. By using various sources, like AMMAJEE (Mush’s mother) and Tariq Aziz etc., I finally managed to become the Secretary of the Ministry.
    • I betrayed all my benefactors, whether it was Pervez Ahmed (former PIO), Channa (Junejo’s PRO), Khawaja Ijaz Sarwar, Farhatullah Babar Asif Ali Zardari, or Nawaz Sharif. I used them for my personal elevations.
    • Another senior, Muzaffar Abbass used to say bad things against me so I made him a horrible example and the gentleman retired in grade 20 whereas I, his junior, retired in grade 22.
    • Journalists like Saud Sahir, Asr Chuhan and Saleh Zafar acted as my agents in the media community. I showered all types of monetary benefits on them from the Secret Fund.
    • I moved the idea of establishing Media University. As per my original plan I wanted to occupy the highest post in the proposed University after my retirement.
    • I also had a plan to become incharge of OPF school, located at Radio Pakistan’s property in H-9 sector, rented out to OPF at through away rates.
    My Sexual encounters:
    • While serving in PIA in early 80’s, I was caught naked with one air hostess. Due to this incident I was transferred back to Ministry of Information.
    • While serving as second secretary/ press attaché at Pakistan High Commission in Canada, I along with a colleague from Foreign Office used to hire escorts. Once both of us were caught red-handed by the wife of then Ambassador.
    • I was caught red handed kissing a lady colleague in PID in 1988 while I was serving there as DPIO (Senior). The stenographer who saw me had to face the punishment of transfer at the worst place in PID.
    • My wife Nayyar Mehmood was always very helpful in supply of beautiful newly appointed chicks of PBC for my sexual fantasies.
    • Let me also confess that my wife had lesbian relations with a number of PBC girls, one of them was Saira of Multan station.
    • During my posting as Press Secretary to PM Nawaz Sharif I managed to get hold of a lady officer of Information Service serving at the PM Secretariat.
    • As DG (EP) I molested a number of lady officers, including the one who was sent to Hong Kong. She was always offered foreign posting on gold plate but some times she refused even to go at lucrative stations.
    • As Secretary Information, the list of my girl friends, is quite long but some of the names are well known, like Kausar Lodhi, Abida Shah, Mrs. Riaz, Shahida Lateef, etc. etc.
    • I had links with a number of journalists who were known pimps in higher circles. Mr. Beg of PTV, Sohail Rana, and some others were very helpful in satisfying my sexual fantasies with variety of stuff available at their disposal.
    • I used to visit various dens of Afghan women in the Khanna Pul area in Rawalpindi. Once, an officer of PID who was also a regular visitor to that place caught me red handed. I had to offer him foreign posting as a price to shut his month.
    • From secret fund money, I gifted two air conditioners to my Afghani girl friends- Mahjabeen and Pari Jan- in Peshawar. These air conditioners were got delivered at their house through Regional Office of PID.
    • During a visit to Multan, I along with MD, PTV had group sex with one PTV lady artist. We went there in connection with inauguration of PTV boaster near Multan.
    • As Secretary Health, I molested a number of newly appointed nurses of PIMS and Poly Clinic. Two nurses, Shahida and Naureen, used to live in my official residence in the name of physiotherapy of my wife.
    • The main reason of my tussle with federal minister Shaikh Rasheed was an Afghani girl, who was liked by both of us.
    Harming juniors:
    • My ways of punishing my juniors included: posting at odd stations like Multan and Gilgit, sending officers on forced leaves, depriving them of foreign postings and promotions, uttering negative remarks against them in their absence, etc. etc. I used these tactics frequently against the officers and even the staff I disliked.
    • Though my entire service is full of destroying careers of my juniors I disliked– and I felt pleasure in it- but I feel myself responsible for the untimely deaths of Nasir Khan and Ikramullah Jan. Nasir Khan died due to his punishment posting at Gilgit and Ikramullah Jan was denied promotion just because of my dislike.
    • Similarly, Rana Mohammad Sharif faced all mental and physical troubles due to my mental torture against him. When I was in PIA, he, as director advertisement in PID, refused to tow to my line. So I made his life miserable after becoming Secy. Information.
    • I was well aware that majority of Information service officers was not willing to bid me farewell when I was transferred from Information to Health ministry. After my return to Information, I took revenge from those officers who, according to my informers, refused to donate money for my farewell party.
    • It was on my orders that the system of selection of staff for posting abroad was changed. I introduced the idea of selection of non-ministerial staff for posting abroad. In this way, my chums from departments like PID, ISA, DFP got selected.
    Grooming corrupt and incompetent people:
    • Chaudhry Idris of PID was patronized by me. He was my share holder in disposal of a major part of secret fund account. He worked as my informer on various officers of the service. He was provided all facilities he desired. In recognition of his services for myself, he was given job on contract basis after his retirement from PID. Does not it sound funny that he is employed against a post in the PTVc but serving in the PID. This was all my arrangement.
    • I tried to persuade my Additional Secretary, Mr. Ehsan Yousaf to destroy the career of an officer by writing a negative ACR. On his reluctance, I had to get him transferred from my Ministry.
    • After the exit of Ehsan Yousaf, I brought a man of my choice as A.S.; a man who is Islamic minded and offers five time daily prayers but from inside was poisonous like me.
    • I groomed inefficient and corrupt officials and officers in the Ministry and its subordinate offices. Such gang was very effective in my ladder to success.
    • It was me who saved one member of my group who was involved in gang-rape of a PTV girl.
    • I started a consultancy firm during my tenure as Secretary to the Government of Pakistan. All the media consultancy projects of Ministries of health, Information and Broadcasting, their allied departments and corporations, as well as other government offices were given to this firm. After my retirement from service I have re-named it as “SAM & BILL” and I want to continue minting money in the name of consultancy.
    • I setup a mechanism of secret informers in each department and corporation under my Ministry. In this way, I was able to know behind the scene activities there.
    Favoritism
    • I used foreign postings as a tool to bribe my stooges.
    • On my orders the foreign posting tenures of Fayaz, who is serving in Jeddah, and Zahoor who is in New York, were extended. The reason was very simple, I received beautiful gifts from them.
    • Waheed (Chitta) of PID, who was my informer there, was accommodated by me after his retirement in the Ministry of Health as DSO.
    • It was me who sent Javed, an Assistant in my office, on foreign posting despite the fact that he could not qualify the selection test and interview.
    • Another foreign posting was that of Imran Naseer, an Assistant of PID, whose father Naseer served me as PS during my tenure as PIO. I offered him the posting of his choice.
    • I also gave a job to Mr. Naseer’s younger son, Yasir in the PID.
    • It was me who groomed Urdu-speaking Anwar Ali a BS- 19 officer serving in the PM’s Secretariat. He always protected my interests in the PM’s Secretariat.
    • I managed foreign posting for Chaudhry Rasheed but he rejected my offer to continue as PIO. I felt insulted on his reaction.
    • I always promoted my gang members in the Information service; whether it was under BEST OF THE BEST formula or the new promotion policy. I managed to get my blue eyed boys (and girls) occupy pivotal positions in the Ministry.
    • I used my influence for getting a handsome job for my daughter in the American Broadcasting Corporation.
    • I appointed a number of persons in PBC on contract basis. One of them was Ms. Dilnasheen, a very very pleasant personality.
    • It was just because of my official position as Secretary Information that my wife Nayar Mehmood got out of turn promotions in PBC. For the purpose a number of talented officers were sacrificed. I wanted to see her elevated up to the position of DG, PBC.

    Misuse of national exchequer:
    • I misused Secret Funds of the Government of Pakistan for my personal benefits. All my DSOs know this. That is why I sent all of them on foreign postings so that they remain out of country and keep their (I am bloody) moths shut.
    • The owner of Imbaco Furniture (located near Zero Point) was my man in making money in the name of renovations of various offices and supply of furniture to the Ministries of I & B and Health. I recommended this supplier to all other related departments.
    • Through an Urdu speaking supplier of Pak PWD I managed to get a fancy chandelier (Fanoos) for my personal house.
    • Knowing that the officers and staff of the Ministry and its subordinate offices were least willing to bid me farewell at the time of my departure as Secretary Information last month, I hatched a plan with the connivance of my limited number of supporters. Under this scheme, a number of farewell parties were hosted in my own honour through public money. The invitation cards for such parties did not mention any thing about me. In this way we managed to get good gatherings which provided my gang a photo and news opportunity in my favour.
    • It was through the secret funds available at my disposal that I managed to get my son educated in a costly Canadian university.
    • In the name of OPF School, in H-9 sector, I minted millions of rupees from the budget of Radio Pakistan.
    • During my tenure as Secretary I organized a number of musical evenings at my residence in which high-ups were invited. All this was done on government expenses but projected as personal effort.
    • For such musical evenings, Idris of PID used to arrange catering service of Rajput and another official of PID, Saleem, was deputed to bring sound system available in the PID Press Room.
    • I made crores of rupees by launching various projects in the name of souvenirs and gifts for projection of Pakistan abroad. In this game the husband of a lady officer of Information Service (Mr. Waseem of Karachi) was my partner.
    • As Secretary Health I took bribes of crores of rupees from national and international pharmaceutical companies.
    • A percentage was set with the newspapers owners for ABC and release of PID advertisements. That percentage was meant for Secretary Information’s account only. That is why I always used to depute Directors Advertisement and ABC persons of my confidence.
    My anti-Pakistan and pro-Musharraf activities:
    • It was me who maneuvered the written affidavit/ statement of an officer of Information Ministry against Chief Justice Iftikhar Chadhry. The statement became part of the reference against the former chief justice and I got appreciation by President Musharraf for my contribution.
    • The officer concerned was selected for foreign posting for offering this statement.
    • On May 12, 2007 I was the one in the Ministry of Information who initiated action for closure of AAJ TV channel. While MQM workers were firing at AAJ TV offices in Karachi I was directly in touch with both President Musharraf in Islamabad and Altaf Bhai in London. In consultation with my new GURUs I devised a plan to control private TV channels in the country. What happened afterwards was actually my brain child duly approved by the President as well as my MQM chief.
    • Ahmed Qureshi, a journalist from Kuwait and a staunch CHAMCHA of President Musharraf, was accommodated on my orders in the PTVc on handsome salary and other fringe benefits. His website, which promotes the cause of President Musharraf, was also supported by me through secret fund money.
    • It was with the blessings of my latest godfather General Pervez Musharraf that I got the post of Secretary of Information. Both of us have MQM links so our families became quite closer.
    • I approached Canadian government, without informing the government of Pakistan, for obtaining Canadian citizenship of my son, who was born during my posting there. Finally, we got it.

    Some more things about me:
    • I was born in a very poor Bihari family settled in former East Pakistan. My father was a clerk in the Railway Department.
    • I was caught cheating in M.A. examination of Dhaka University. I was rusticated from the University for this crime.
    • I was also involved in gang raping of many Bangali women during East Pakistan separation.
    • A PID officer who was also Bihari knew all this. So I had to do some favours with him.
    • Because of this background, my candidature as Pakistan’s High Commissioner to Bangladesh was rejected by both the Government of Bangladesh as well as the Pakistan Foreign Office.

    My dear brothers and sisters!
    While confessing all these immoral activities and crimes I really feel ashamed before you. Nonetheless, a big burden on my conscious is removed now.
    Please pray to God for my forgiveness and my future prosperity. Due to all these negative tactics used by me during my service career you can describe me as a Machiavelli or Chankya of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

    I also seek apologies from the Pakistani nation that from the tax payers’ money I was able to start the business of SAM & BILL, which implies “Syed Anwar Mehmood and Bilal (my son).” Though it is a looted money but I want to use a proportion of my income for the poor people of this country so that my conscious is satisfied.

  243. MQM has ordered its elite terrorist wing to move from South Africa to Pakistan for the final round with the Armed Forces and make Karachi Beirut of Pakistan leading to the separation as independent territory. Though it might not be relevant to the South African government now but may become problem in future. It is understood that elite terrorist unit is active by looking at the targeted killings of 18 Haqiqi (Mohajir Qumi Movemnt) in the month of January 2010 alone, and 81 members from June 2009 – December 2009 in six months period, the total number of Haqaqi workers killed in the past eight years from 2002-2010 is shamefully 154. There are other groups whose members have been killed allegedly by London – Edgware based MQM-Altaf group.

    Approximately 16 or more members of MQM elite terrorist wing have entered into Pakistan some with different IDs in the past four weeks. Some of the people arrived in Karachi had bounty on their heads and are wanted in Pakistan for heinous crimes. The master mind of the group is known as Qamar Ghalib Teddy (Johannesburg), Sohial Commando, Rizwan Haider, Nadeem Mullah.

    Minister for Ports and Shipping Nabeel Gabool, claimed in an interview published on 25th January 2010 that an MQM assassination team has arrived from South Africa to eliminate him. The minister claimed that, ‘he was called in by the Intelligence Bureau and warned face to face that his life could be in danger.’ The minister confirmed the names of the elite terrorist unit mentioned above.

    South African MQM assassins will be taking over the command of the local elite terrorist group known as ‘Shurfa Committee’ aka (Gentlemen’s Committee). Some of the members of this committee are Sultan Keel, Ejaz Gorchani, Naeem – East Sector (Maleer) nephew of a cleric Shahturabul Haq, Manzoor Landhi Wala, Sohial Commando, Farooq Baig, Aslam Chor, Anawar Alam, Hishamul Zafar and ring leader Saleem Shazad. Some of the members are not known to the local sectors as they only report to MQM London Head Office and mobilised to do elite operations. They are provided every facility in the world. Their families are protected and supported. They are the real hired guns.

    On the issue of confiscation of spying and recording equipments from senior MQM leader Waseem Akthar (MNA) by the Paramilitary Forces (Rangers) a senior security official told, “it is a very serious violation of the national security of the country as venues of the meetings with Presidential and Prime Minister are debugged and checked as Standard Official Procedure (SOP) but if any invitee or invitees bring some recording device with them that is a serious violation of the security of the state”. We don’t know for whom MQM leaders were recoding? Was he recording for USA, India, Mossad or any one else?

    While commenting from Islamabad on the MQM spying matter a Senior Pakistan Army General and security analyst told me over the phone that, “MQM is heavily infiltrated by Indian RAW and Altaf Hussain admitted to him being close to the Americans”. One can not comment on the closeness as Americans are known to sleep and forget their girlfriends behind with illegitimate children, like in Vietnam.

    The worst thing is that current so called political regime has no idea of national pride and national security. I spoke to Fozia Wahab (MNA) political spokesperson of the current Zardari regime. She asked me, ‘who was recording MI (Military Intelligence)”?. I said, ‘no MQM leader Waseem Akthar’. FW: ‘oh he was with me in a TV program and there is problem between President Zardari and Altaf Hussain. President would have told himself to Altaf Hussain about the meetings. I explained to her that Presidential meetings are state secrets and not party political broadcasts’. It sounds she was more worried about Military Intelligence recording who is paid by the state to do this job then MQM recordings for India, USA or smuggling state secrets outside Pakistan. The whole regime is full of apologists, criminals, fraudsters, and opportunists.

    It looks like as if ‘current regime is using the ‘new trick of treachery’ BY PASS THE SYSTEM, which is undermining the state institutions especially State Security, Law Enforcement, and Defence. For example:

    (1) When they see Zardari regime and MQM working on the Indo-US plan of dragging Pakistan Army into civil war in Karachi because armed forces refuse to expand useless war in the FATA.

    (2) When they see MQM and PPP are heavily infiltrated by RAW and following its agenda.

    (3) When they see Rehman Malik not asking half Jewish US citizen David William Hedley aka (Dawod Gillani), alleged mastermind of Mumbai Bombing’s handover to the Indian authorities as Ajmal Kasab, who admitted to be remain in the Mumbai police custody long before the bombings.

    (4) Why Rehman Malik is too keen to implicate small group ‘Let’ following Indian agenda?

    (5) Rehman Malik is a foreign national, chief protector of the Blackater/Xe and mercenaries in the country. He is following Indian agenda to divide Karachi into ethnic zones and start a civil war with full co-operation of MQM whose many leaders including Altaf Hussain are foreign nationals. His idiotic statements sound like a curse and shame on the nuclear nation of 180 million.

    (6) Eshrat Abad Khan MQM Governor of Sind is also a foreign national and allegedly providing safe heaven to terrorist involved in targeted killings.

    (7) State security, defence, and intelligence institutions especially lower ranking officials who don’t have foreign dollar accounts or have kids studying in Europe and US are feeling helpless, unsupported, demoralised, and betrayed.

    (8) surely they have genuine reason when they see Rehman Malik doing ‘pimping’ and applying foreign agenda of fanning sectarianism in Pakistan ignoring national interest of the state of Pakistan.

    (9) When they see MQM and Rehman Malik working on the agenda of dividing Karachi and DI Khan into Shia –Sunni sectarian and Punjab-Pashtun – Sindhi and Mohajir ethnic zones.

    (10) When they see President Zardari deliberately putting Pakistan into IMF debt trap (friends of Pakistan)

    (11) When they see transfer of million of dollars outside Pakistan into foreign accounts of the corrupt and compromised.

    There are ways these challenges can be countered: (a) informed public opinion (b) support of ‘MQM feared media’ (c) support of judiciary (d) elimination of infected elements in the police and security agencies.

    How to counter terrorism in Karachi:

    a) Exposing the real faces of MQM terrorists’ involved in the targeted killings of civilians, armed forces personals, and 650 police officers of the Sindh Police.

    b) All political appointees in the Rangers, Police, and Law Enforcement Agencies immediately transferred into other parts of province into interior Sind outside Karachi as their loyalties are with the mafia more than the state of Pakistan. For example cold blooded killings of 4 innocent injured patients as reported on 6th February 2010 at Abbasi Shaeed Hospital proves that MQM – Altaf is a terrorist mercenary group part of Blackwater and not a political party because even in war one don’t kill injured enemy prisoners.

    c) All the political prisoners including Mohajir Qumi Movement’s leadership Amir Khan and Afaq Ahmed immediately released if no cases have been proven against them on bail following the law.

    d) All community police recruited on the political basis must be disbanded as they have become part of the problem and not part of the solution.

    e) Data collection of all arms licence holders

    f) Data collection of all the landlords of the foreigners in the city/country

    g) Strict monitoring and managing of print and electronic Media propagating Indian propaganda, and become part of Indian Psychological Operations in Pakistan especially media groups emerged in last ten years and owned by dodgy jewellers, businessmen and smugglers.

    h) Stop MQM fake registration of votes into the voters list as they plan to register 5 million votes before local bodies’ election.

    (i) Complete ban on nonsensical international politics telephone politics. If you want to do politics be brave come in the country and stop ‘sofa–cell politics’. Shamelessly Altaf Hussain has never voted in any Pakistani elections since 1992.

    People of Karachi must stand up against the foreign mercenaries of MQM and Blackwater.

  244. Sathi Bhai & Jiyalays friendship should stick to what their leadership AZ & AH they do best to maintain in meetings for ruling at Karachi, get-married & then get divorced. It is understood Karachiets must re-exam their entire position, take a step back for a moment this wasn’t Taliban or any Islamic Militant’s plan from the beginning to break them from their own announcement of Friendship since the AZ visit of Nine Zero, from the beginning?

    Hence AZ & AH & Co. is a thief along with most of their own respective peers & guess what Karachiets are bankrupt as their businesses are being affected badly because of their own self created enmity on land grabbing matters & other bomb blasts or Target Killing totally Financial Capital Movements are stopped when such killings are taken placed. They all liars & now have trouble keeping their lies straight. Incredible, great picture which was presented in above Article in short both Sathi Bhai & Jiyalay Bhai are just stretching the Islamic Militants to fit their own barely-political agenda. There’s no logic in what they usually say regarding Talibanization, just glittering generalities.

  245. The TARGETED killing of Sind Police Officers by MQM

    MQM killed 650+ Sind Police Officers

    (http://thecurrentaffairs.wordpress.com/2009/10/18/mqm-killed-650-si nd-police-officers/)

    By Dr Shahid Qureshi.

    Few years ago I asked Shoib Shuddle former of Director General of Intelligence Bureau and Inspector General Police at a reception in London.‘what is your input about the cold blooded targeted killings of Sindh Police officers who took part in the ‘operation’ ordered by Benazir Bhutto’ in 1995. He acknowledged the fact that there was a problem. Though police in Pakistan is known for its brutality but it is also true it is under resourced and ill trained but they are still managing?

    MQM is a mercenary group whose HQ is in London and possibility of its leader to go to Pakistan is Zero? It exaggerate everything no doubt death one person is too many but their claim that 25000 MQM workers disappeared is the extreme. Where is the list of those 25000 people and where are they buried? MQM is in power for the past 10 years consecutively why did they not investigate these killings? Why Altaf Hussain never thought of asking for a judicial enquiry into the Karachi Operation in 1992?

    The South Africa branch of MQM and its activities are very suspicious especially the Nishtar Park – Karachi terrorist incident when whole leadership of Sunni Tehreek was eliminated. According reliable sources that to those who examined and conducted post-mortems of the bodies found bullet marks and some of them were shot in head. It seems that cause of death was bullets then shrapnel’s of bomb explosion? According to a source that people who were involved in this terror might have been provided safe passage to South Africa? It is reported that the whole operation was monitored by a MQM leader from a minority group? It seems a case of targeted killings. Only a high powered judicial investigation into this act can expose the crime.

    It is alarming that MQM members have been issued arms licences in thousands and Rehman Malik interior minister allegedly issued approximately 2000 permits of AK47. Some members of MQM recently absconded from (apart from being on ECL) Pakistan and came to London were allegedly involved in arms trafficking from Baluchistan.

    Late Benzair Bhutto “condemned the killings of 650 police officers and said, my thoughts are with families of those killed in the line of duty.

    I asked late Benazir Bhutto at dinner in London few years ago to comment on the targeted killings on reportedly more then 650 police officers in Karachi. Most of them killed had taken part in the Karachi Operation conducted by the PPP government. Ms Bhutto, “condemned the killings of police officers and said, my thoughts are with families of those killed in the line of duty. She demanded that (Musharaf) government should brought killer/ terrorists to justice and protects the men doing their job and following orders”. Some people say that MQM is more dangerous then any terrorist organisation’.

    After September 11, the United States identified even more with the MQM as it was the only party in Pakistan that widely mourned the attacks on the US, openly condemned the Taliban and al-Qaeda, and launched a powerful campaign in support of the US attack on Afghanistan. MQM has been the only party to support the military’s intervention in the tribal areas.

    Asia Times Online reported, ‘sources say that, ‘only US diplomatic intervention stopped Musharaf from taking strong action against the MQM after he received the report on the recent unrest in which the MQM was implicated. Washington indeed has a powerful southern ally (MQM) in Pakistan’.

    It is time for the government of Pakistan to approach its friends and allies to have a clear cut answers about the real Agenda in Pakistan? Crimes of Altaf Hussain and his party MQM are so heinous that he couldn’t dare going back to Karachi even the whole period of Musharaf and now Zardari rule?

    Until November 1998 Government of Pakistan was reportedly seeking extradition of Altaf Hussain was wanted in 50 murders and 150 cases of kidnapping and arson. Altaf Hussain, a trained pharmacist who has been living in England since 1992. ‘If extradited to Pakistan he will be killed’, said Altaf Hussain in an interview with a newspaper in 1998. “It is my wish that they take me to trial in a British court,” said Mr Hussain. “Then I will tell people nationally and internationally what has been happening in Pakistan.”

    Pakistan seems land of the holy men where people are forgiving each other for breaking all laws corruption, extortion, murders, kidnapping and anti state activities including violation of the constitution. Why and how can individuals do that? A senior journalist said, ‘President (Asif Zardari) and Prime Ministers (Yousaf Gillaini) House is subcontracted to Richard Holbrok, Raiwind Palace (Nawaz Sharif) is to Mark Lyal Grant and David Milliband. Altaf Hussain is already a British Citizen an asset whom so social services can handle? This is how a country of 180 million, a nuclear power perceived internationally?

    Altaf Hussain woke up recently and started weeping as if he never knew anything for the past years about the Karachi operation conducted during Nawaz Sharif’s premiership? He is woken by the statement of an allegedly corrupt foreign mole Brigadier Imtiaz former head of the Intelligence Bureau who might have lot to answer for the deaths of two Chiefs of Army Staffs General Ziaul Haq and General Asif Nawaz? He allegedly lured General Zia ul Haq to attend that Tank demonstration in Bahawalpur while his friend Major General Mahmood Ali Durani planted the toxic mango crates?

    In reality this awakening is linked with the judicial enquiry into the killings of 12th May 2007 and brutal murders of judiciary activist? This is brining sleepless nights? What happened to Major Kaleem of the Pakistan army is still an open file as well as the systematic targeted killings of more than 670 police officers who took part in operations against MQM? This is what making Altaf Hussain do live telephonic speeches otherwise there are many daily flights to Karachi and being a dual citizen he has no restrictions?

    A senior London based analyst wrote in a Journal recently, “It is no coincidence that Asif Zardari- PPP swore in two MQM Ministers in the federal cabinet the day the party submitted its draft for 18th Amendment (provincial autonomy) to the Constitution. The dissolution of the federation and creation of a Mohajiristan in Sindh is the ultimate objective of the proposed amendment. The two parties represent hostile Indo-US interests; they want to weaken federal authority and incorporate right of secession in the constitution to facilitate the break-up of Pakistan. The PPP has indeed been a symbol of federal unity until AZ took over. Now it is an instrument of the policies of the enemies of Pakistan.”

    “Dr. Farooq Sattar is the one who drafted this bill with mala fide motive in order to make proper political arrangement in the long run for the formation of an Urdu speaking state known as REPUBLIC OF JINNAHPUR as proposed by one MQM Activist – Syed Jamaluddin – based in Europe. Syed Jamaluddin has proposed in his said book that Jinnahpur shall come into being exactly in the same manner as KOSOVO few years ago. Please note that Kosovo was an autonomous province of Serbia. Hence, if MQM´s Provincial Autonomy Bill is approved (God forbid), one day the MQM shall declare independence of Republic of Jinnahpur through a vote in the Sindh Assembly exactly in the same manner as the Kosovo Assembly in February 2008.
    Dr. Farooq Sattar has been appointed the Minister for Overseas Pakistanis to pursue MQM’s agenda of bringing foreign investment into Karachi which will be portrayed as DUBAI and SINGAPORE of the future as outlined in the same book “FORMATION OF REPUBLIC OF JINNAHPUR” by MQM Activist SYED JAMALUDDIN. The script of the book was approved by the MQM leaders in London prior to its publication as part of MQM´s policy to blackmail Pakistan’s establishment including the Pakistan Army.
    In TV interviews, representatives of MQM have darkly warned that unless their Bill for Provincial Autonomy is passed, Pakistan’s disintegration shall remain on the cards. This is indeed an open threat. (See http://www.dividepakistan.blogspot.com for the web site of the Indian agent and MQM spokesman Syed Jamauddin.)”

    MQM has crossed the lines of terror, corruption and extortion. All political prisoners should be released on merit not used as blackmail?

    (Dr Shahid Qureshi is award wining journalist and writer on foreign policy & security based in London)

  246. There was no Nawaz Sharif when Nasirullah Babar was murdering Urdu speaking people. Ironically MQM is sitting on lap of Zardari and sucking his thumb and enjoying the power. If Altaf is so upset then he should quit the government. But Altaf will never do.A party which was formed by n ex IJT member(that is Altaf Hussain) and promoted by dictators(Zia and Musahrraf) can’t be trusted for the betterment of Pakistan. Yeah the MQM supporters are free to burry their heads in sand and continue to believe that things are lovely in their surrounding. Nobody is going to care about it at all

    Jinnah Pur or not.. the torture cells of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital and killing of their own guys in mid 90s can’t be forgot

  247. the truth is always exposed wheter it is in deep of the ocean god bless them

  248. As far as Operation is conerned, Offcourse MQM will not talk about 94/95 operation initiated by PPP when Nasirullah Babar was murdering people like butcher. Those people were “advertised” as “Mohajir” but later it was found out that most of them were “Commando”,”Kaana”,”Langra” etc, the code names of MQM;s millitant.
    Do I need to remind that Karachi was suffering more in Benazir era than Nawaz Sharif. Ask those who spent time in that era and they would tell yo how life was hell due to tussle between MQM and Naseerullah Babar.

    I don;t need to believe in any Brig’s words while i myself have seen many things at that time. What Brig said today,he will change later. I am less interested in Jinnah Pur stuff but there are several instance of videos on Youtube in which Altaf called creation of Pakistan a blunder and asked India to give shelter. Usually we,”intellect” condemn Mullah that they were “against” Pakistan but ignorantly we, the so called intellectuals don;t have dare to say a word against non-religious Mullah like Altaf Hussain who was regretting on creation of Pakistan.
    If you prefer to burry your head in sand then its not my fault. Altaf’s melo drama of illness was performed at Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where he stayed most of the time before running away from Pakistan. Kindly don;t mislead yourself and others that MQM was NOT involved in “target killing” Are you saying MQM did not kill Haqiqi guys? are you saying tht guys like Azeem Tariq,Khaled Bin Waleed and other prominent figures were not killed by MQM? are you saying that MQM did not messed up all Karachi walls by writing “Sirf Altaf” or “Only Altaf” when they smell the “saazish” of Musharraf(read Military) that Mush is willing bring up Aamir Liaquaat against Altaf? The list goes on and on my friend. Being an ex Nazimabadi I have seen many things myself. Please don;t fool yourself and others by giving an “outsider;s perspective” of the things which you might not fully aware. If you just want to embrace Altaf then do it anyway. Don’t seek fake excuses to support him.

  249. I wonder how an ex Army man is being trusted by MQM supporters? The guy also had memory issue and many times he misquoted others and later apologized. How such NROfied person could be trusted? Nadeem Daar is continuously saying that He did find maps of Jinnah Pur. Regardless of that, Imtiz’s claim that Altaf returned bags filled with currency,it was a plain joke. How a Bhatta inventor could return money? More important, if Nawaz did all that then why MQM slept with Nawaz’s party in 97 election and formed a government?

    On other hand, this is plain crap and lie that 15,000 URDU SPEAKING “innocent” were killed. Genocide? Oh please! if it was a genocide against Mohajirs then why am I still alive? why others residents of Nazimabad No.1,FB Area,and other middle class regions still taking breathe? Yes “Mohajirs” were killed but they were criminals with names like Kaana,Commando and what not and they were in few hundreds NOT in thousands. In reality MQM’s guys ran away in interior sind during PPP’s operation and hide in various shrines.

    Despite of MQM’s “popularity”, MQM vote bank did get disturbed. I remember Sattar started complaining of rigging when he was defeated in election. So assuming that Karachiites “love” MQM is like living in dreams. Things were different in late 80s and things have chnged a lot in new century.

  250. i know 92 incident was shown more radically than it was in actual. However, there is no doubt that MQM has always been involved in terrorist activities.
    you should that video as well in which Hamid meer said that Musharraf told him that he want to kill ALTAF Hussain.
    MQM can never be a good political party.
    The developments in karachi are not done by MQM. It has been planned by Last govt. that was jamat e islami.
    This Govt of MQM just went on the inauguration of each development done by the previous govt.
    its really hard to promote MQM coz everyone knows the truth.

  251. Baluch political and human rights groups based in Canada, U.K. and the U.S. have called the Muttahida Qaumi Movement an urban terrorist and fascist outfit that needs to be rooted out from Karachi for the good of Sindh.

  252. In a press statement released on Wednesday, Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) said the recent killings of the indigenous Baloch populace in Karachi is part of a wider plan of the MQM to assert its administrative control over the city.

  253. The goals sanctioned by the MQM’s reign of terror against lawyers in the past, looting and burning of 2,000 shops in Bouton Market, target killing of indigenous social activists who resisted land grabbing, and the indiscriminate killings of innocent Baloch and Sindhis in Karachi – is to decapitate Sindh’s capital from its historical and cultural roots and run it mafia-like as the Hong Kong of South Asia, the B.H.R.C. leader said.

  254. The B.H.R.C. leader said, “A Canadian court has already given a ruling against M.Q.M. and has declared it a terrorist group and it is about time that the British [government] should take measures and extradite its leader, Altaf Hussain to where he belongs.”

  255. “When Hitler killed communists, I did not raise voice because I was not a communist. When Hitler killed socialists, I did not raise voice because I was not a socialist. When Hitler killed Jews, I did not raise voice because I was not a Jew. When Hitler killed trade unionists, I did not raise voice because I was not a trade unionist. When Hitler came after me nobody was left to raise their voice for me.”

  256. Minister for Ports and Shipping Nabeel Gabool, claimed in an interview published on 25th January 2010 that an MQM assassination team has arrived from South Africa to eliminate him. The minister claimed that, ‘he was called in by the Intelligence Bureau and warned face to face that his life could be in danger.’ The minister confirmed the names of the elite terrorist unit mentioned above.

    South African MQM assassins will be taking over the command of the local elite terrorist group known as ‘Shurfa Committee’ aka (Gentlemen’s Committee). Some of the members of this committee are Sultan Keel, Ejaz Gorchani, Naeem – East Sector (Maleer) nephew of a cleric Shahturabul Haq, Manzoor Landhi Wala, Sohial Commando, Farooq Baig, Aslam Chor, Anawar Alam, Hishamul Zafar and ring leader Saleem Shazad. Some of the members are not known to the local sectors as they only report to MQM London Head Office and mobilised to do elite operations. They are provided every facility in the world. Their families are protected and supported. They are the real hired guns.

    On the issue of confiscation of spying and recording equipments from senior MQM leader Waseem Akthar (MNA) by the Paramilitary Forces (Rangers) a senior security official told, “it is a very serious violation of the national security of the country as venues of the meetings with Presidential and Prime Minister are debugged and checked as Standard Official Procedure (SOP) but if any invitee or invitees bring some recording device with them that is a serious violation of the security of the state”. We don’t know for whom MQM leaders were recoding? Was he recording for USA, India, Mossad or any one else?

    While commenting from Islamabad on the MQM spying matter a Senior Pakistan Army General and security analyst told me over the phone that, “MQM is heavily infiltrated by Indian RAW and Altaf Hussain admitted to him being close to the Americans”.

He is following Indian agenda to divide Karachi into ethnic zones and start a civil war with full co-operation of MQM whose many leaders including Altaf Hussain are foreign nationals. His idiotic statements sound like a curse and shame on the nuclear nation of 180 million.

    (7) State security, defence, and intelligence institutions especially lower ranking officials who don’t have foreign dollar accounts or have kids studying in Europe and US are feeling helpless, unsupported, demoralised, and betrayed.

    (8) surely they have genuine reason when they see Rehman Malik doing ‘pimping’ and applying foreign agenda of fanning sectarianism in Pakistan ignoring national interest of the state of Pakistan.

    (9) When they see MQM and Rehman Malik working on the agenda of dividing Karachi and DI Khan into Shia –Sunni sectarian and Punjab-Pashtun – Sindhi and Mohajir ethnic zones.

    (10) When they see President Zardari deliberately putting Pakistan into IMF debt trap (friends of Pakistan)

    (11) When they see transfer of million of dollars outside Pakistan into foreign accounts of the corrupt and compromised.

    There are ways these challenges can be countered: (a) informed public opinion (b) support of ‘MQM feared media’ (c) support of judiciary (d) elimination of infected elements in the police and security agencies.

  257. TERRORISM IN KARACHI ON HITLER’S FOOTSTEPS

    Just as the world knows all about the nuclear holocaust which destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, so does it know about Hitler’s cruelty which left an entire nation paralyzed and divided. So when government says that the Karachi problem is the problem of the whole country, and that we are fighting the battle for Pakistan in Karachi, they seek to explain the simple logic that the wiles of Fascist Hitler brought destruction not only on the German nation, but resulted in the killing of 55 million people all over the world. Just as MQM has wrought havoc on not only the people of Karachi but the nation at large.

    Now we would take the opportunity to see it is really in bad taste to compare Altaf Hussain with Hitler, as some self-preferred terrorists feel. This would depend on the extent to which Altaf Hussain has followed the fascist declarations canonized by Hitler while founding his party.

    Hitler’s autobiography, “Mein Kampf” was translated in Urdu by Maulvi Ibrahim Ali Chishti and printed by Lahore’s Lion Press in two volumes (1950 and 1955). In his foreword, the Maulvi stated three distinguishing features of the system which Hitler evolved: use of terrorism to achieve ones’ aims, preference of racism over nationalism as the basic political creed, and use of people’s power to gain political ascendancy and then discard them. Hitler-power was achieved when they announced the Nazi party’s manifesto at a public meeting in 1920. The main features of this manifesto which are given in the following, reflect on his personality and bent of mind more vividly than any other historical document. These are:

    1.

    Nation’s destinies are charted by the minority, not the majority.
    2.

    Intellectuals are misguided individuals, suffering from scientific indigestion.
    3.

    Democracy brings anarchy and chaos.
    4.

    Our creed is true, and only this creed is true.
    5.

    Destruction fuelled by violent demagoguery is necessary.
    6.

    The leader requires disciples who oppress others while pretending to protect them from oppression.
    7.

    Illiterates and naïve youngsters are more suitable for the movement.
    8.

    The disciple should be trained to act, not ask questions.
    9.

    We are not the slaves of public opinion, but its leaders.
    10.

    Newspapers should not be allowed to ride popular will.
    11.

    Reject everything that the opponents utter.
    12.

    Minimum writing, maximum speaking.
    13.

    Street trouble is the lifeblood of the movement.
    14.

    Public demonstrations should not be peaceful.
    15.

    Deserters should face death.
    16.

    Kill big traitors before small ones.
    17.

    Divide and rule.
    18.

    A constitution cannot correct political weaknesses.
    19.

    12,000 traitors should be put to sword.

    We invite everyone here to go over these points and take out those, which haven’t been used by Altaf Hussain and his party in their operations at one time or another. Go briefly over the points once again. The negatives for a terrorist include democracy, knowledge, learning, newspapers, children, public debate, and peaceful activity. The positives are illiteracy, blind following, the infallible saint, lawlessness, street trouble, minority decisions, rejection of the opposition, and increase in population.

    The conspiracy to spread terrorism in Karachi is a pure Hitlerian strategy which consists in occupying whatever belongs to the people, and then repeatedly dispel the impression that such an occupation has taken place; keep repeating that we are on the side of justice, and that the rest of the world consists of liars; and that so-and-so is opposed to our ideas because he is the enemy of our people. MQM ostensibly seeks to be a civil rights movement, but it conveniently ignores that a civil rights movement needs be civil first.

    Review the performance of Karachi Municipal Corporation when MQM was in power, especially in the light of this strategy to have an inkling of what is this all about. For five years during 1987-92, MQM wielded total control over the billions of rupees of corporations’ funds. But what was the result? Nothing but more destruction. And it couldn’t be otherwise, because if people’s problems have been solved, who will come to listen to fire-spitting orator dilating on then put theme of deprivation and helplessness.

    The largest agency of urban development put at their disposal for five long years, and all we got in return was the same chain of accusations, complaints of repression, of powerlessness, of being cheated; appeals to the people to rise in revolt, listen to no one but the MQM as these Chaudhrys, Waderas and Sardars were out to fleece every penny … Appealing to the Army for Justice while attacking the same institution …

    While the civic problems went from bad to worse the “nation” was being fed on slogans like “death to Quaid’s traitors”, “homeland or coffin”, “freedom or death”. And just as the civic authority dissolved into a party fief meant for fund raising and ceremonial purposes, the specter of the leader rose as a symbol of Pirdom, sacrosanct and therefore infallible, at the same time attacking every national institution, every sense of hope creaking at the hinges from internal tension, the party split into two in June 1992, one group identified as MQM Haqiqi and the other called MQM/Haqprast and now Muthidda. Later a third group emerged under the leadership of the former party chairman, Azim Ahmed Tariq, and a former member of the party’s central cabinet, S.M. Tariq. Muthidda activists subsequently assassinated both these leaders and their murder blamed on official agencies.

    The first to fall was Azim Ahmed Tariq who was eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf who directly received order from their master through phone calls. But Muthidda ostensibly mourned his death and held various official agencies as responsible for it. But confusion subsided when the former chief minister of Sindh, Muzaffar Hussain Shah, declared on the floor of Sindh Assembly, Azim Tariq was killed by Hashamuz Zafar and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui both activists of Muthidda.

    S.M. Tariq’s murder came in the immediate aftermath of the arrest of Hashamuz Zafar by the law enforcing agencies. He was a close aide of Azim Tariq, and a potential witness in his murder case. Muthidda again held the agencies responsible for the murder, and mourned his death amidst touching statements. During 1992-98 almost 450 central leaders and supporter of MQM (H) were killed and eliminated by the terrorists of Altaf Hussain including Mansoor Ahmed Khan (Deputy General Secretary of MQM (H), Sardar Ahmed (Finance Secretary of MQM (H), Rehan Umar Farooqi (Ex Member National Assembly) and many others.

    The target killing; process of elimination of political rivals is still going on by the terrorists of MQM. This again reminds one of a Penguin books publication titled ” Hitler’s Englishman” written by Francis Selwyn .He writes in his book that “just as the Mongols and the Asiatic pirates considered raping women as morality, robbing as the part of civilization and manslaughter as a favorite pastime, so did Hitler” and now we say so did Altaf Hussain as he is a true disciple of Hitler – the cruelest manifestation of evil in this century.

    But no one can hide facts and that what is the real nature of these barefooted gun-totting terrorists? What ingredients are they made up of? What soil went into the making of such a beastly spate of fascism, which has eclipsed Karachi’s sun in the wink of an eye?

    Everyone knows that Altaf Hussain has shown himself to be an extremely impulsive man who can alter a “principled” stand sooner than one can say Jack Robinson, and often for no obvious reason, unless one takes into account his well known tendency for terrorism as a tool of political blackmail. A look at the composition of his dialogue team over the last many years demonstrates this fact. Just because many of the members of this team could not contrive excuses for terrorism on the dialogue table, they were frequently discarded in favour of others. And saw the replacement of M.A. Jalil with Dr Farooq Sattar, followed by Senator Ashtiaq Azhar and more recently Ajmal Dehlavi and company. The same goes for MQM’s assembly members, who are changed every time the elections are held so that they wouldn’t take roots among the masses and carve out an exclusive niche for their own leadership.

    ANTI-STATE ACTIVITES OF MQM

    MQM killed thousands of innocent persons including government functionaries. Its first major situational action against political rivals comes in Pakistan Steel Mills in 1990 when a number of men kidnapped from there. These men were taken to torture cells in Landhi and Korangi. Since then, torture and murder of army officers, navy functionaries and a whole range of other professional and non-professional men and women has become a routine. Hundreds and thousands of innocent citizens were eliminated by the terrorists of MQM in Karachi. Among them are eminent citizens, politicians and law-enforcing personal, high government officials, writers like Salahuddin and finally the former Governor of Sindh, internationally renowned scholar and social worker Hakim Saeed.

    The method is simple. Terrorists choose a government servant and mark his residence. They watch his movements and his routines. Then, when orders are issued to “resurrect the movement and do his case”, the man is whisked away from a convenient spot. The kidnapped is invariably tortured, then killed and his body stuffed in a gunny bag to be dumped on a street in the quiet of the night. The movement of Haqparasti (truth worship) is thus kept alive. In 1995 alone, 120 public functionaries were killed in this manner by MQM terrorists.

    The question is, if MQM has not been engaged in killing government officials, policemen and members of other ethno-linguistic groups, what has it been doing all these years? A group which is armed to teeth and given to a foreign induced philosophy of separatism cannot do much else. The whole country knows that it started the gory tradition of killing innocent, unarmed civilians in a bid to cause a wedge in the nation.

    The people of Pakistan want MQM to renounce its anti-state operations, but it is understandably a hard thing for the group to do. Its personality and holding power depend on men like Farooq Dada, Asif Zaidi, Ali Mota and the like. Regrettably these men can in one lifetime kill 60 to 65 government officials for the sake of Mutahida glory, but they cannot turn it into a formation fit for human politics.

    The whole world knows that Altaf during a telephonic address instigated his audience to chant the slogan “aadha tumhara aadha hamara” (half & Sindh for you, half for us) and this slogan obviously reminds us about another slogan which was raised some quarter century ago” Udher Tum Idher Hum” and the horrible consequences it bought in a form of Dahka Fall. At the end of the meeting a prayer was held which said, “makes us the sons of our soil, O Lord,” then there is Rana Safder Ali Khan’s threat in the Sindh Assembly, “we will demand the deployment of UN troops in Sindh”, or Ajmal Dehlavi’s threat, “give us our rights otherwise India, or some other country may intervene.” One also has not forgotten the “break Pakistan” slogan raised by mourners during a funeral procession in February 1994.

    MQM’s strategy to effect a division of Sindh is reflected in its efforts to point all the parties active in Sindh politics as Sindh parties with support base in rural Sindh only, and itself as the sole spokesman of urban Sindh is aimed at boosting its claim for a greater share of power on the one hand, and playing up the non-representation of this population on the other. Coming to Sindh’s Mohajir population, it used to be estimated by MQM at around a few million in 1986. In 1990, Azim Tariq put it at 10 million. In a petition filed by MQM in the Supreme Court in Jan 1995 – it was mentioned as 15 million. Seven months later in September 95 they said it had become 22 million, growing at a preposterous rate of one million heads every month.

    MQM understands one thing. There is no urban – rural dichotomy when it comes to rights, and there are no set formulae – Rights are where the need is. Had it been for geographical area, Tharparker and Dadu would be getting the most funds in Sindh and Baluchistan would be claiming a lion’s share in the federal pool. Had the criterion been the population Punjab would today be far more developed than Karachi. In Sindh, Karachi with its 10 million population would be receiving much less compared to rural Sindh where a greater majority of people lives. But this is not the case.

    In Karachi 10% of the people of Pakistan have 70% of its wealth. Total population of Pakistan is 130 million and the; population of Karachi which is even less than 10% of total population have 70% of country’s wealth, and yet Altaf Hussain claims that they are being discriminated against. The truth is that Altaf wants all this wealth for himself. He publicly ordered Mohajirs not to pay taxes as these taxes are used to develop poorer areas of Pakistan. And then he; professes to be the protector of the federation. Altaf knows this and wants to separate so that he has it all to himself.

    In spite of the fact that Karachi remains the most prosperous city of Pakistan, offering unequaled facilities of urban livelihood, the best industrial infrastructure and the highest rate of employment, a major share of Sindh’s development funds continues to go into the city because its growing size makes the upgradation of its infrastructure imperative. Rs 121 billion have been earmarked as the Karachi package for various schemes in this regard. This is much more than what is getting in to rural areas. …

    INDIAN CONNECTION OF MQM

    The government has repeatedly called upon Muthidda to close its training camps in India and call back Javed Langhra and others to the country. Altaf and his party responded that leveling such an allegation against a party was not only a crime, it violates of the security of the country.

    According to Altaf and his Muthidda there are no training camps in India but Javed Langrha lives there because it is a democratic country. It also says that thousands of other workers went abroad to escape persecution. It does not say how many, but if we take it at 20,000 who paid for their fare? They must have spent well over a billion rupees.

    But here money is not the issue (Altaf’s Muthidda was a multi billion-rupee organisation, having robbed with total impunity the richest city of Pakistan for more than a decade. The issue is, did thousands really leave the country in 1992? All we have heard so far is a few names: Altaf Hussain, his 12 body guards, Salim Shahzad, Anwar Khan, Javed Langrha, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Ishratul Ebad and about hundred others. There may be hundred more phony asylum seekers in the west, using MQM’s cover. To say that they are in thousands is to say that there are 22 million Mohajirs in Sindh. It is Master Goebbles at his dirty work again.

    The government has repeatedly referred to training camps in India on the basis of two known factors. Firstly, the types of weapons – Klashnikovs, rocket launchers and hand grenades that are used by MQM terrorists are in use in three zones of this region; Tamil Nadu, Karachi and Afghanistan. All the three zones are divided between different gangsters and warlords, who are spilling blood to strengthen the respective bargaining positions. Secondly, enough circumstantial evidence exists to suggest that MQM is doing India an overt favour by harming the cause of Pakistan on every possible platform.

    Since 1990, every year Karachi has religiously plunged into an orgy of death and violence at or about February 5, the day that the government of Pakistan observes as the annual black day for Kashmir. MQM’s peak violent action has also coincided with other Kashmir related issues, such as the official Pakistani protest over the burning of Charar Sharif or during the earlier hold out at Dargah Hazrat Bal. Towing this policy, MQM has brought the issue of Karachi at par with that of Kashmir in the international media. Although the issue of Kashmir involves a deeper sense of loss, strongly rooted in the valley’s historical consciousness, tying it up with a predominantly criminalised Karachi has nevertheless been a victory of sorts for India.

    Moreover, Javed Langhra’s access to the personal company of Indian minister of interior and other high-ranking officials is a matter of concern for the government of Pakistan. Not very long ago, the former Indian Prime Minster, V.P. Singh, had stated that India could not keep quiet over the situation in Karachi any longer. Altaf Hussain’s appeals to Indian Muslims to hold protest rallies against Pakistan are also fresh in our memory. Then there is the incident of (UNHRC) Geneva Conference in which MQM’s New York based leader Anwar Khan, delivered a speech and took sides, with the Indian delegation against Pakistan. Altaf Hussain himself ridiculed the two-nation theory and spoke derisively about Pakistan Army in an interview with the Indian fortnightly magazine, India Today.

    He has frequently been clamoring to the world opinion leaders to forget about Bosnia and Kashmir, and to watch Karachi instead. In the background of all these facts, the extra coverage which MQM gets at the Indian radio and TV media is a further source of concern to the Pakistani government. Apart from enlisting India’s support, Altaf has repeatedly sold Karachi to the west as another Hong Kong – all that needs be done is repeat of history when the Hong Kong was taken away by the British.

    Muthidda’s coordination committee is ever willing to shoot arrows in the dark, but it cannot be expected to offer comments on ground realities. Nor does it have the courage to convince Altaf Hussain that there is only one way out of this situation: end of terrorism and an inclination towards Islamabad rather the new Delhi.

    Altaf Hussain was also asked by the government to condemn Indian excesses against Kashmiris, desist from portraying Karachi (which is a part of Pakistan) at par with Kashmir in international circles and stop its activities in Karachi and abroad which are aimed at diverting the world’s attention from Kashmir.

    Altaf Hussain established its Indian connection probably a little before 1990. According to some observers, previously this connection worked through the mediation of G.M. Syed’s workers. But direct contacts were established once Altaf (because of criminal charges, which he refuses, to face) departed from Pakistan and took permanent abode in London.

    A little before the army operation of June 92 Javed Largrha and his comrades slipped into India and, in connivance with the Indian authorities, started training camps for subversive activities inside Pakistan. Some Muthidda activists who were later arrested – among them Naahid Butt’s phony brother, Khalid Taqqi – have narrated before the Islamabad press their tour to India in the company of Langrha.

    The government of Pakistan has a real cause of concern here. Langrah is a fugitive from the law. His stay in India makes him susceptible to Indian pressure to work against Pakistan. India competes with Pakistan in the international market for textile, leather goods, rice, cotton and other commodities. Obviously the Indians will not get on Pakistani ships to destroy their consignment.

    They will rather avail the services of Pakistan’s gun totting “political” activists to cripple its economy. It is not surprising, therefore, that Altaf Hussain continues to dish out strike calls in protest over the arrest or killing of criminals who have each killed anything from 20 to 50 persons in a brief career of between two to four years. The economic fallout of these strikes inevitably goes to favour India.

    The first time Altaf’s Muthidda stayed away from the government’s annual, February 5 Kashmir Day protest was in 1990. The Kashmiri intifada was a year old then, and the Indian government was already feeling the heat. Relief came from Muthidda on February 6 and 7, when unprecedented violence started in Karachi and continued for several days. Since then the 5th of February has occurred many times, but not a single occasion has seen Altaf’s Muthidda joining the anti-India protest over human rights violations in Kashmir. If anything, it has punished the protesters on each occasion by resorting to terrorist attacks in Karachi and Hhyderabad. For example in such an attack in Liaquatabad were killed 10 camp followers of Harkat-ul-Ansaar, a Kashmiri organization. A pro-Altaf morning newspaper and another sympathetic eveninger put headlines that read, “5 die in Kashmir, 10 in Karachi”.

    Such comparisons are the core of Altaf Hussain’s present propaganda technique, and the newspapers that are promoting this propaganda have been eliciting Altaf’s Muthidda armed support against two rival newspapers of Karachi.

    During the 47th UN Conference which was held at Geneva MQM circulated to the delegates two specially prepared booklets; a 91-page book titled “Pakistan: where the State Kills”, and the 64-page “Pakistan” A Terrorist State”. The concluding lines of the first booklet read,” there is no doubt whatsoever that Mohajirs in Pakistan are subject to the same atrocities as the people in Bosnia, Kashmir and Rwanda”. The second booklet uses excerpts from domestic and foreign material to prove that Pakistan is involved in lawlessness in Kashmir on the one hand, and serves as a base for Islamic terrorists on the other.

    During this conference, MQM Anwar Khan interrupted the speech of Pakistani delegate with disgust, which not even enemies’ display at such civilized forum.

    During 1996 and 1997 the terrorist of MQM somehow again managed to enter in the Palle, the UN headquarter in Geneva, Switzerland and distributed various booklets and pamphlets, against Pakistan. Although during this period, the political wing was part of the Sindh Government. During March 1998 the same people of Muthidda namely Anwar, Arif Ajakiya with the support, help and connivance of anti Pakistan NGOs and Indian organizations not only distributed books, but confronted with Pakistani official delegation, Mr. Nehal Hashmi and other peace loving NGOs, who were supporting a peaceful and just cause.

    Since early 90, the International headquarter of MQM based in London is attending various international conferences to cover-up their unlawful terrorist activities and acts nationally and internationally.

    During early 90s, many foreign national including US embassy officials were killed in Karachi by the terrorists of Altaf Hussain. This leads to create uncertainty and to pass message internationally that Karachi is not a safe and secured city for any foreign national investors.

    ANTI MEDIA ACTIVITIES OF MQM

    Altaf and his MQM were asked by the government to renounce its policy of press censorship, and publicly declare that it will not use threats and direct or indirect pressure to influence the print media.

    Altaf’s MQM is perhaps the first “political ” party in the world which clamped an across the board censorship on newspapers and kept breathing down the editor neck for more than four years. Hitler had said, “Newspapers should not be allowed to ride popular will”. Altaf and MQM followed this dictum to a tee. The code of censorship, which MQM designed under the able guidance of Altaf Hussain for the newspapers of Karachi, was impeccably complete. “Important” news items and photographs, their size, length and their exact placement on specified pages (mostly front page) was dictated to the city’s newsrooms from Nine Zero. Anything, which Altaf did not want published, could not see the light of the day.

    MQM’s terrorism against the press took its early shape in 1985. By 1987 it had gradually made its presence felt in the newsrooms. Any departure from Nine – Zero’s guidelines brought down the Pir’s wrath on the reporter, the sub-editor, the editor, the publisher, the owner – anyone in any way connected with the production of that particular section of the newspaper. Inadvertent violations sent shivers through the entire newspaper establishment.

    Daily Jang, being the largest circulated newspaper of the country, tried to break the shackles in earlier days of the Pir (Altaf Hussain) and he threatened that paper “one paper is becoming a party against “Mohajirs”, it should take warning (daily Amn April 6, 1987). The Pir’s disciples ultimately in Hyderabad lit up 30,000 copies of the paper on June 21, 1987. Thousands of copies more were burnt in Karachi. On June 24, Jang columnist, Nizam Siddiqui, wrote, “Altaf Hussain demands that Jang should; publish his statements and photographs in places proposed by him, and that his opponents views should not be brought into print. No political party or leader has made such a demand in 47 years.”

    Altaf’s reactions have always been aggressive and devoid of any regard for ethics. Ask about who persecuted Maulana Salahuddin, editor weekly Takbir, burnt his house, burnt Takbir copies, tried to prevent Takbir’s publication from Karachi, and when the Maulana refused to budge, killed him? And every one will say MQM.

    An evening newspaper brought out a supplement on the assassination of some opponent of MQM, in which it called him a “Shaheed”. The paper had to suspend its publication for several days, and the editor attended hearings at Nine-zero day in and day out. He was finally given the license to live, but on a price. Until today, this evening newspaper is acting as an official spokesman of MQM.

    On November 14, 1988, Altaf served another warning to daily Jang. “If Jang does not change its attitude by 16 November, we will put an end to lit forever” (daily Savera, Karachi).

    On March 8, 1989, Jang failed to cover May or Dr Farooq Sattar’s wedding to the satisfaction of Altaf Hussain. He said, “this has been a source of grief, to us. We will observe a token boycott of Jang on March 10″. Azim Tariq said, “we appeal to hawkers not to lift Jang on March 10th. And we are telling them in advance” (daily Amn, March 8, 1989).

    On the orders of Altaf Hussain and Azim Tariq (the same Azim Tariq who was lately killed on the directives of Altaf Hussain), MQM workers in Hyderabad burnt hundreds of thousands of copies of dailies Jang, Dawn, The News, Jasarat, Star, monthly Herald and weekly Takbir between March 10 and March 20, 1991. Journalists in Islamabad boycotted the parliament in protest over these incidents.

    Weekly Takbir’s offices were ransacked and set on fire on March 22, 1991. The FIR lodged with he Arambagh police station said, “this incident is part of Altaf Hussain and Azim Tariq’s campaign to terrorize Takbir and its editor”. In the Liaquatabad public meeting, Azim Tariq reiterated Altaf Hussain’s directives that “Takbir” would not be allowed to circulate anywhere in Karachi (weekly Takbir, April 4, 1991).

    Talking to the journalists in hospital (Abbasi Shaheed) on March 10 Altaf Hussain said, “Dawn is hatching conspiracies against MQM. Herald spits poison against us. Takbir is an agent publication of the Jews. People reserve the right to make newspapers accountable. If the accountability begins, you shouldn’t start your press freedom lamentations.”

    Sarwat editor of Takbir, was harassed and threatened by hooligans at her residence on March 13. The following day, newspaper hawkers and agents were deprived of their copies and beaten up in several parts of the city. On March15, Azim Tariq said, “Herald and Takbir will not sell in this city now. This is the people’s decision” (daily Amn). Altaf Hussain seconded this on March 16: “from today onwards, people will not read Takbir and Herald, which comes out of the Dawn building. This is our right”. He further said, “any newspaper that does not give us proper coverage, will not run.” (Daily Qaumi Akhbar). BBC’s reporter in Karachi Zafar Abbas, was attacked on March 19.

    Journalists held a protest meeting at Karachi Press Club and decided to boycott MQM’s programs. On March 20, Altaf Hussain announced his boycott of Dawn, Herald, Star and Takbir.

    Altaf Hussain and his MQM cannot bear criticism and difference of opinion and that’s why each and every paper if writes even a single word against Altaf or MQM gets punishment. Amount of punishment depends upon the nature of crime. And these punishments can vary from the burning of newspaper copies to the murder of editors. But the irony of situation is that besides doing these heinous, crimes against media and media MQM cries hoarse for its own freedom of expression.

    ECNOMICAL DAMAGE IN FORM OF MQM’S FORCED STRIKES

    It is not easy to quantify the damage done by terrorism, blood looting, firing, arson, and riots, strikers and torture spread over these ten, twelve years. The cost paid by Karachiites in terms of deaths, damage to property, anxiety, extortion and hunger is far greater then the cozy Pirji of London can imagine.

    In these years more than 5000 persons fell to terrorist bullets in Karachi and Hyderabad, while more than 1000 others were wounded. Property set on fire on otherwise destroyed included 475 vehicles, 20 banks, 102 houses, 95 shops, two telephone exchanges, 20 offices of different political parties, 12 petrol pumps, 2 factories, one office each of Wapda and social security, two post offices and 4 police stations.

    The successive years saw the terrorists upgrade their weaponry from simple revolvers to Klashnikov assault rifles and rocket launchers. Terrorists used their war machine to strike at the national interests of Pakistan on the one hand, and use cellular telephone and pager facilities to organize raids against government officials and political rivals on the other. 360 policemen were killed during these years.

    MQM insists that its strikes are peaceful. But the facts speak other wise, In a total 38 strike calls spread over these years, MQM prevented Rs 30 billion worth of business transactions from taking place. Hundreds of thousands of people had to do without postal and other communication facilities. Given these facts, it is a wonder how “educated men” like Ishtiaq Azhar and Dr Farooq Sattar can insist that strikes do no harm Karachiites.

    BHATTA (A FORCED TAX)

    Since 1988 the terrorist of Altaf Hussain introduced a new method to collect tax from the common, ordinary citizen which called Tanzimee Chanda, later on the method of collection was divided in various forms, one is monthly tax from each and every shop and house. Another forced tax called “Saman Kiya Tayyar Hai” which used for the purchasing of arms and ammunition to protect themselves, later on almost every shopkeeper, industrialists, businessmen and investors was compelled by the terrorist of Altaf and his Muthidda either to pay the weekly tax or shut down and closed their business and commercial activities. If someone refuses to pay either he eliminated physically or his business forced to close by the terrorists.

    Resultantly hundred’s of businessmen shifted their business from Karachi to other part of Pakistan. According to a report pudlished in a news daily “MQM’s monthly income, which it earned through Bhattaism before the imposition of the Governor Rule in Sindh, was Rs. 600 million. Never a single penny was spent on the economic and social betterment of Karachi people. In fact this money was use to arm the youths of Karachi with weapons rather than education, the business and trade in Karachi almost rewind due to this forced tax and robbery.

    UNWRAPPING THE RAPE DRAMAS

    MQM was asked to give up the policy of using women to incite violence. MQM denies this, of course, but evidence exists to show that cases of gang rape were cooked up either to help it steer through a tight sot, or put the government on the defensive.

    MQM origins are tied with the famous name of Bushra Zaidi, a Sir Syed College girl who made Altaf Hussain’s career by dying in a road accident in 1985. Since then, a woman has always figured in the evolving strategy of Altaf Hussain to build an empire on terrorism. Nahid Butt, Shazia, Seema Zarrin and others. All these women were portrayed as victims of sexual assault. Not one of them ever comes to fit the merits of the case.

    Take Shazia for example, the sister of India based Javed Langrha. She had a tiff with the family, and went to her grandmother’s house without telling anyone. She stayed there for two days. MQM was quick to react. Shooting in the dark, they cooked up a story that the personnel of Rangers had carried her away. Hearing the scandal, Shazia returned home and told the truth. Milk was separated from water.

    CASE OF NAHID BUTT

    Nahid Butt’s name figured at a time when hostilities in Kashmir had temporarily heightened. She was used to put across the message that Butt (a Kashmiri tribe) women were as exposed to rape in Karachi as in Kashmir. Khalid, MQM activist who was claimed to be Nahid’s brother, turned out to be her lover. Khalid alias Taqqi alias Mamoo was a resident of Lines Area.

    Presently he is charged with 10 cases of murder and is in official custody. MQM attempted to portray him as a Kashmiri sympathizer of the party who resided in New Karachi. An army officer was accused of raping Nahid. The army plunged into action and investigated the case. As it turned out, Nahid was not a Butt, but was painted as such for political reasons. Moreover, Khalid was not her brother, but one of her lovers. She was found carrying contraceptives on her, and admitted that she entertained MQM boys off and on.

    FARZANA SULTAN “RAPE” CASE

    A case in point is that of Farzana Sultan, the young sister of MQM activist, Shahid Feroz. Although the poor girl was subjected to this unwarranted ignominy for the sake of a lie, 30 people died as Altaf Hussain called a strike in reaction.

    On its part MQM sensationalized the drama by inviting suitors for the `raped` girl. For several days, the local press carried Nine-Zero’s press releases counting the names of the suitors who had volunteered to take in the daughter of the nation. It also gave a call for protest strike, in which 30 persons died in the name of Farzana Sultan. Altaf Hussain’s ego further inflated by an inch.

    MQM has time and again used women folk to incite violence and disturbances in the city. A case in point is that of Farzana Sultan, the younger sister of MQM’s activist Shahid Feroze. It was alleged by MQM that on June 20, 1995, a fifty (50) years old PPP Councilor Naeem Qureshi along with seven (07) others, including his alleged son Bhoora had subjected Farzana Sultan to gang rape.

    On the evening of June 22, 1995, some MQM’s leader arrived at Karachi Press Club at 09.00 p.m. along with Mr. Shoaib Bukhari, MPA and Deputy Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly, to address Press Conference. The Press Conference was video taped and also transmitted through mobile phone to London for the consumption of Mr. Altaf Hussain. In the Press Conference the above allegation of gang rape were repeated.

    On the same day, Mr. Shoaib Bukhari lodged a FIR with area Police Station, wherein the allegations of gang rape were repeated. However, the name of PPP Councilor was conspicuously not included by Mr. Shoaib Bukhari. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Naeem Qureshi the PPP Councilor did not have any son by the name of Bhoora.

    Mr. Altaf Hussain and other leaders of MQM sensationalized the alleged incident and called for strike in protest in the city. Colossal damage was caused to public and private properties and about 30 innocent people were killed by MQM wherein 94 police and private vehicles were set on fire. The hooligans of Altaf Hussain for couple of days disturbed the city. In the process the poor girl Farzana Sultan was subjected to all kind of adverse publicity.

    The Government, immediately taking cognizance, of the allegation leveled by MQM, ordered the medical examination of the girl, which was carried out and the report was immediately made public. Mr. Altaf Hussain and other leaders of MQM disputed the findings contained in the medical report “that no marks of violence were found on the person of the alleged victim nor there was any medical evidence of the alleged gang rape or rape.” The Government immediately offered that the doctors of the choice of the parents of Farzana Sultan and MQM from Pakistan or abroad might be examined the alleged victim.

    REPORT OF AGHA KHAN UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL

    On June 26, 1995, Agha Khan University Hospital Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology Faculty, including Professor and Assistant Professor examined the alleged victim of gang rape Miss Farzana Sultan. The report of Agha Khan University Hospital concluded, “the clinical findings in this case suggest minor injury to the posterior area of the fourchetta, which is almost healed, although still sore to the patient. The findings are consistent with the conclusion that the patient has had sexual intercourse in the recent past”.

    Subsequently, the follow-up medical report in the case of the alleged victim was issued by the Agha Khan University Hospital on July 02, 1995. In the follow-up report it was further concluded, “besides shows inflammatory exudate with metaplastic cells and gram negative intracellular diplococci, confirmed by culture to be Neisseria Gonococci. The infection is confirmed to be sensitive to Penicillin, Erythromycin, Cefotaxim and tetracycline”.

    Based upon the above findings it was advised by the Consultant Physician that Miss Farzana Sultan should pursue appropriate follow-up and treatment without delay.

    From the above medical findings it was quit clear that the alleged victim Farzana Sultan was not subjected to the alleged gang rape or rape as was insinuated by Mr. Altaf Hussain and other leaders of MQM. Be that as it may, owing to the said allegation of gang rape and subsequent call of strike and agitation given Mr. Altaf Hussain from London and other leaders of MQM from Karachi resulted in 30 innocent people being killed and damage to private and public properties besides disrupting the city life and causing trouble in the city.

    THE FINDINGS OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF USA IN THE CASE OF FARZANA SULTAN

    The State Department of USA, recently, issued its Human Rights Report regarding Pakistan, wherein inter-alia about this incident of alleged gang rape of Farzana Sultan, the report contains a finding “although the MQM/A consistently claims that its activists are innocent, unarmed victims of ethnic violence, disinterested observers believe that cells of armed MQM/A activists are responsible for a considerable amount of Karachi’s violence and crime. This includes extortion of large sums of money from Mohajir businessmen as well as others.

    In an apparent attempt to inflame public opinion and destabilize the situation in Karachi, MQM/A leader Altaf Hussain the alleged gang rape of an MQM/A supporter (while in custody) to call for three ” days of mourning” in Karachi June 24-26. At least 67 people died in strike-related violence during the protest. Medical reports on the alleged victim, however, did not substantiate the charges of gang rape. The MQM/A enforced numerous other strike calls with violence, resulting in the deaths of law enforcement personnel and civilian bystanders.”

    It is the standard practice of Mr. Altaf Hussain and MQM to concoct and fabricate false allegation and create an issue out of non-issue and exploit it to the hilt through the medium of aggressive propaganda and rhetoric and then malign the Government and give calls for so called protest strike. Invariably in all such cases strikes have been enforced through intimidation, resorting to indiscriminate firing and burning of public and private transport. In the case of Farzana Sultan, it has been established by independent findings of Agha Khan University Hospital, which also substantiates the findings of the Government doctor that no rape or gang rape was committed and the allegation was concocted.

    It is well known and talks of the town that terrorists of MQM used to enter in the houses of helpless people and commit rape with the women to terrorize the family and to blackmail. Being of Islamic and eastern traditions most of the families hesitate to lodge complaints against them. Because of the fear, disgrace, and defamation in the society, the helpless women can only pray to the Almighty for help and justice, besides looking forward towards the International commuity and the lawful authorities to eliminate such type of heinous acts of the MQM.

    The so-called Naheed Butt and Farzana Sultana rape case is just a tool for negative propaganda. At present no one knows the whereabouts of Naheed Butt and Farzana Sultan and many others. Such cases were only used for negative propaganda.

    It is apprehend that there is likelihood that “the evil mind of Altaf Hussain will create new rape dramas to save their dirty face from local, national and international community and to cover-up their terrorist and un-human activities from the eyes of law and peace-loving people.”

  259. Old Files: Year-wise Details of MQM’s Atrocities (Crimes of Muttahida Qaumi Movement: MQM)

    All this were based on newspapers dailies Jang, Jasarat, The News , The Muslim, Nawa-I-Waqt, Frontier Post , The Nation, Dawn , Jang, Pakistan Times and others.

    MQM came into being on March 18, 1984 from “All Pakistan Mohajir Students Organisation” (APMSO) but politically it got activated in 1986.

    And from that year politics and history of Karachi took a bloody turn. The year wise details about the regime of terror which started in 1986, and about the story of horror, and blood and tears which still continues unfortunately, and also of the wicked leader “Quaid-e-Tahreek” of the same party who changed thousand faces all these years, and of the handful of elements who for their own interests used cheap tactics and created disturbance and violence in Karachi:

    1986

    MQM’s first-ever public meeting at Karachi’s Nishtar park on August 8, 1986, was marked by heavy aerial firing from the; pistols and rifles which the party activists were carrying on them. On that day, windowpanes of a traffic police kiosk opposite Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum were broken, and stones were pelted on petrol pump near Gurumandir. Addressing the rally, Altaf Hussain said: “Karachi is no more mini-Pakistan. We will accept help no matter where it comes from, from east or west, north or south” (dailies Jang, Jasarat and other newspapers of August 9, 1986).

    Two months later, on October 25, 1986, while addressing a press conference at Hyderabad Press Club, Altaf Hussain told the Mohajir youth to “collect arms. If our rights are not given to us, we will use every kind of force”. On October 31, while addressing a public meeting at Hyderabad’s Pakka Qila, he said: “At first we fought for freedom. Now that we have freedom, we are searching for a country” (daily Amn, Nov 1, 1986). Riots broke out in Karachi the same evening. Twelve persons were killed, 25 wagons, autorickshaws and motorbikes were set on fire, and four houses and eight shops were torched.

    Riots spread to Hyderabad where seven persons were shot dead in two days. Curfew was clamped in both cities to contain violence, and Altaf Hussain alongwith ten others was arrested by he police on November 2 for attempt to murder and rioting. Nine other MQM activists were also taken into custody and firearms recovered from their possession, whereas 63 persons from other parties to the rioting were arrested from Sohrab Goth area. On November 3, ten persons were killed in hand-grenade attacks in Orangi Town area while six others died in street trouble, brining the week’s death toll in Karachi to 52.

    On November 18, armed MQM activists fired in the air to disrupt a cricket match in Hyderabad’s Niaz Stadium. On November 21, at the end of a one-day cricket match between Pakistan and West Indies, armed MQM activists blocked all roads leading to Karachi’s National Stadium. 30 persons received bullet wounds in indiscriminate firing in the Liaquatabad. Teen Hatti, Gulbahar, Orangi, Sabzi Mandi, Nazimabad and other areas of the city. A bank was burnt in Liaquatabad, while a bus was put on fire on Shahrah-e-Quaideen. One November 22, three buses and an oil tanker were burnt in Landhi, while a branch of the National Bank was ransacked and torched in Liaquatabad.

    Another government bus and a minibus were burnt in Malir and Old Numaish, and several buses were pelted with stones on November 23. On November 24, 11 vehicles were burnt down in New Karachi, Federal B’ Area, Paposhnagar, Gulbahar and Nasirabad. On November 28, armed clashes between MQM activists and the police took place in Hyderabad during which five bank branches were damaged and one bus put on fire.

    MQM announced a strike in Karachi on December 9 and asked its followers to remain peaceful. The ‘peaceful’ strike led to the burning of 11 vehicles and seven bank branches. One youngster was killed, and nearly 40 wounded in indiscriminate firing. Demonstrators pelted stones on the police and a bomb was blasted near Liaquatabad police station. The police became helpless against protesters” (daily Amn). On December 14, MQM’s secretary general Dr Imran Farooq stated that the situation could be brought under control only if Altaf Hussain and his companions were freed.

    That night, 50 persons lost lives during ghastly manslaughter in Orangi Town. The army was called in and curfew clamped. According to newspapers, the entire Ghetto Township had passed into the hands of a group of klashnikov-weilding youngsters. 70 more persons were killed on December 15.

    According to available statistics, as many as 173 persons were sacrificed on the alter of MQM struggle for rights, while 10 banks, 75 vehicles 24 houses and 20 shops were burnt during the last 153 days of 1986. The battle for Karachi’s so-called rights had begun. On December 20, MQM Chairman Azim Ahmad Tariq demanded justice for Mohajirs, and advised President Zia-ul Haq to issue arms licenses to Mohajirs. After this, we will neither invite the police or the administration to defend us, nor criticize the government on this score” (daily Jang Karachi).

    1987

    With the onset of 1987, lawlessness in Karachi caused curfew for a record number of days. This was also the year when MQM’s anti-press traits began to shape up. The coming days were to expose some of the most fundamental contradictions inherent in the party’s structure and philosophy.

    It was on January 31, when Altaf Hussain made the first most controversial public statement of his career. Addressing a series of welcome receptions in Liaquatabad on that day, he told his audience. “Mohajirs will have no god use for their VCRs, color televisions and other luxuries because these things cannot defend us. They will have to arrange for their own security” (daily Jang, Feb 1, 1987).

    On February 1, in the central committee meeting of Awami National Party at Lahore that was presided by Khan Abdul Wali Khan, a resolution was passed stating that Sindh’s Mohajirs were a part of the larger Sindhi nationality, and that there was no such thing as a Mohajir nationality. ANP was later to become one of MQM’s most trusted allies in national politics.

    On February 19, Altaf Hussain addressed another rally at Burns Road in Karachi. As the party activists started shooting their guns in the air, Altaf Hussain stopped them, saying “save your ammunition”. The audience raised hands to give Altaf the permission to meet anyone, including G.M. Syed. During his address, Altaf said that Sindh could not bear any more population. “There are also Lahore and Faisalabad in the way. These too are Pakistani cities”.

    On February 20 and 21, 16 persons were wounded and one Suzuki van, four motorbikes and a KTC bus were put on fire during rioting in Liaquatabad, Shershah, Federal B’ Area and Sabzi Mandi. Young boys in Liaquatabad pelted stones at the police the whole day.

    On April 5, at the book launching ceremony of Shakil Ahmad Zia, Altaf made a hard hitting speech against Punjab, the Punjabis and the army. “You used force, and the result was that the country broke into two History offers no example of such a large number of troops laying down arms. For those who want to send us back to India, let me say that we will not go alone. The whole Pakistan will go to India”. During the same address he issued his first threat to the press. One newspaper is becoming a party against Mohajirs. It should take warning” (daily Amn. April 6, 1987).

    On May 21, a young man was killed when riots broke out in Malir and Khokhrapar in protest over the arrest of some MQM workers. Six vehicles were also burnt in the area.

    In an interview with daily Nawa-e-Waqt’s Irashad Ahmad Arif, published on May 25, 1987, Altaf Hussain said: “Urdu language is Punjab’s problem, not ours. We have never demanded that it should be made the national language”.

    On June 11, while addressing the foundation day celebrations of All-Pakistan Mohajir Students Organisation (APMSO), he demanded that Mohajirs be issued with arms licenses. He said the religious parties did nothing for the Mohajir Shaheeds but when a Punjabi died everyone from top issued statements of condemnation to bottom. He also said that anyone who met the Muslim Leaguers or was hand in glove with the government ministers had no place in MQM ranks (daily Amn, June 12, 1987).

    On June 21, MQM chairman, Azim Ahmad Tariq, stated that the anti-Mohajir policy of daily Jang would be fully resisted. He announced Jang’s boycott, and asked people not to read it. The same evening, dozen-armed persons attacked Jang’s bureau in Hyderabad and put the premises on fire.

    From July 22 to August 30, clashes between MQM and a rival group called Punjabi-Pukhtoon Ittehad (PPI) caused the death of 22 persons, while 300 were wounded. Five policemen also died in riots, while 38 were wounded. Seven KTC buses and a local train also became targets of terrorism. Clashes between the two rival groups had first broken out in April, but arrests on both sides had caused the trouble to temporarily subside.

    On August 4, during an address to MQM’s general workers’ meeting, Altaf Hussain said that the days of the power of the army and the police were numbered. These forces have been bullying us in our airfields, police stations, neighborhoods and streets. They have put the entire Pakistan in their pockets”. He further said on August 14, MQM would announce that mini-Pakistan is not Karachi, but Lahore. “Throw open the gates of Lahore to Afghan refugees on that day, and let them do what they please” (daily Amn, August 5, 1987).

    On August 9, the campaign to collect sacrificial hides began in Karachi and Azim Tariq, in a statement, alleged that the Jamaat workers robbed MQM volunteers of their hides at gunpoint. He condemned this act, and issued a warning to Jamaat. On August 21, Altaf Hussain told a meeting at New Karachi that the problems could no longer be solved without rendering sacrifices, and asked people willing to make sacrifices to give their names. Addressing the Mohajir police trainees, he said that if they are forced to quit their job, they should break the legs of their instructor. A time will come when our people will be sitting in police stations he said.

    On August 26, bloody-armed clashes between two groups in Shah Faisal Colony led to the death of nine persons. 80 persons were injured. Eight platoons of police, riding in 32 mobile vans, were present at the scene but could not bring hostilities to an end. Riots also broke out in Hyderabad on August 27. Curfew was clamped which continued unbroken for twelve days, until 4 p.m. on September 7. On August 28, chairman Jiye Sindh Mahaz (JSM), Abdul Wahid Aresar, expressed support for the “suppressed” Mohajirs, saying that the army, the police and Punjabi settlers had attacked the Mohajirs as if they were a conquered people (daily Amn, August 29, 1987).

    The government of Sindh on August 28 issued orders for the arrest of all those involved in rioting. PPI’s Malik Ghulam Sarwar Awan, Mir Hazar Khan and 160 others were arrested, but Altaf Hussain was not found at his residence.

    In the interest of peace, the government made a goodwill gesture by dropping criminal charges against all concerned, but it was not destined to work.

    On August 30, Altaf Hussain courted arrest. On September 29, a spokesman of MQM said that the party considered Khanabdul Wali Khan and Abdul Ghaffar Khan as the true representatives of the Pukhtoons. He also expressed optimism about the party’s ongoing talks with the PPI.

    On October 8, G.M. Syed told journalists in Matli that the time had come for a union between the Sindhis and Mohajirs. We have recognized our common enemy, he said.

    On October 31, MQM announced a strike to commemorate last year’s killings at Sohrab Goth. During the strike, indiscriminate firing led to the killing of two persons. 85 others were injured while six vehicles, seven shopsand two banks were put on fire. A telephone exchange was burnt in Orangi. Three women, a girl and a man were injured in roadside firing in Liaquatabad and a petrol bomb in Pak Colony injured two police constables. Riots in Kotri and Hyderabad resulted in injuries to DSP and SSP Hyderabad, while offices of the Muslim League and Wapda, a post office, an office of social security, four bank branches and 17 vehicles were set on fire.

    1988

    Rioting, arson and murder continued into January 1998, ten months before the restoration of democracy in the country. On January 10, stabbing incidents and acts of terrorism in Golimar, Liaquatabad, New Karachi Shah Faisal Colony, Banaras, tin Hatti, Chand Bibi Road and Rizvia Society led to the killing of five persons, and the injuring of several pedestrians including three journalists. 13 vehicles were also set on fire. The army was called in to control the situation. On January 18, four persons were killed in bloody clashes between MQM and PPI activists. Moreover, 37 houses and shops of the area were put on fire in petrol bomb attacks. Curfew was clamped to disengage the warring factions.

    Nine persons were killed and 60 hurt in riots that engulfed Nazimabad, Liaquatabad and Sohrab Goth on February 4. The property put on fire included 28 houses, several shops, two factories, a petrol pump and several vehicles. Six more people were killed, and two vehicles burnt, in Liaquatabad, Pak Colony and Gulbahar areas on February 8. Curfew continued in different areas of the city. In a statement on February 21, Altaf Hussain said that Jamaat-e-Islami was another name for the drug mafia and the police. He called Jamaat’s Prof. Ghafoor a liar, and accused him of towing Jamaat’s “traditional” policy of hypocrisy (daily Amn, Feb 22, 1988).

    On March 1, the driver of an oil tanker lost control when he came under attack of rioters in Liaquatabad, the vehicle breaking into a house and killing four inmates. This incident was followed by violent protest in which rioters injured 12 policemen including SDM and DSP Liaquatabad. Nine police vans, a minibus and an autorickshaw were damaged. Four more vehicles were put on fire. On March 3, curfew was clamped in Liaquatabad to prevent further trouble. On March 13, in his address to the Karachi bar, Altaf Hussain advised Punjabis and Pukhtoons to go back to their own provinces and demand jobs from their governments.

    On April 6, an attempt by the MQM to rename Haider Chowk (named after great nationalist leader, Comrade Haider Bux Jatoi) as Mohajir Chowk created tension in Hyderabad.

    On April 30, an accident between a motorbike and a Suzuki van led to incidents of stabbing and firing in Orangi in which four persons were killed.

On the following day, altaf Hussain called on Syed at Haider Manzil and the two leaders made and remove misunderstandings.

    On August 30, MQM activists pumped bullets into a Karachi University student, Aamir Salim, killing him instantly. On September 3, APMSO activists launched attacks on members of other student bodies as well as on lecturers in various city colleges, injuring dozens of them. These attacks were supervised by five councilors of the municipality.

Maulana Shah Ahmad Noorani stated that MQM wanted to win elections by terrorizing the people, “but we will not bow before anyone”.

    1989

    This was the year when incidents of firing by masked assailants increased, differences within the MQM came to surface, and thousands of copies of Urdu daily Jang were burnt by MQM activists during a boycott of that newspaper.

    The rioting that marred the last days of 1988 continued into the New Year with the death of a man on January 1, 1989.

    On April 1, three people died in firing by masked gunmen in Shah Faisal Colony. Student trouble started in the two medical colleges of the city and 10 students were kidnapped from Karachi University. On April 6, 10 persons were killed and 40 others wounded in incidents of firing in Hyderabad. The trouble was controlled by imposition of curfew. While death and destruction reigned in Karachi and Hyderabad. Curfew was also imposed in Nawabshah following the death of five persons in linguistic riots.

    Three MQM ministers filed their resignations on May 1, but the government as a goodwill gesture rejected these. On May 3, the MQM activists broke up a rally of JUP in Gulbahar at which Maulana Shah Ahmad Noorani was the chief guest. On May 7, a government contractor was killed in Ranchore Line. On May 9, doctors lodged their protest over the activities of armed MQM activists inside Civil Hospital Karachi. In Sukkur, 20 shops were burnt down in linguistic riots. Medical examinations were postponed on May 18 following an armed clash of APMSO with Sindhi students.

Talks between the chief minister Punjab, Mian Nawaz Sharif, and Altaf Hussain for political co-operation were held on May 30. On June 1, three federal ministers held an emergent round of talks with the MQM in order to save the Karachi accord.

    On June 14, a group of armed students stormed the university offices and held the vice chancellor and 20 staff members’ hostage for eight hours.

In a report submitted on September 22, the then DIG Karachi, Afzal Shigri, said that MQM was not a political organization, but a terrorist one.

    Altaf met President Ghulam Ishaq Khan at Karachi’s State guesthouse on October 13. On the same day, two police inspectors were gunned down by terrorists in the city. On October 23, MQM unilaterally pulled out of Karachi accord.

    Violence hit Karachi and Hyderabad on November 6, in which four persons were killed. The then chief of army staff, Mirza Aslam Beg, expressed hope on November 7 that soon a broad based government would be established in the country. Rangers were called to Soldier Bazaar on November 9 following the death of one person in firing. On November 21, a man was killed in Baldia town.

Two more persons were killed in Karachi on December 21, while two students were killed on December 22.

    1990

    This was the year when MQM played horrible role by unleashing a reign of terror and blood letting in Karachi and Hyderabad, it set example of the extent to which it could go to impose a minority view on the majority.

    400 persons were eliminated in the first six months of 1990, and many more were kidnapped and made hostage. The months of February and May saw the most killings, with MQM terrorists going on a killing spree to punish political dissent. And the time came when Karachiites were to be confined behind huge gates of steel obtained from the bounty of Pakistan Steel Mills which passed into MQM’s effective control.

    On January 3, 1990, ANP and MQM reached an agreement to work jointly for “peace” in Sindh. Between January 30 and February 3, 18 persons died in Hyderabad riots. The Government of Pakistan observed February 5 as solidarity day with the Kashmiris, and rallies were held all over the country. In the evening, masked gunmen killed two persons and kidnapped eight others in an obvious bid to counter Pakistan’s Kashmir cause. MQM announced strike for February 7 and on February 6 the worst trouble of the year started. 64 persons were killed between February 6 and 9.

    Karachi University opened on March 31, after a 51-day closure. Altaf Hussain started his famous fast unto death on April 7, which he was to end 150 hours later without achieving his aims. On April 12, MQM rejected a government offer to hold peace talks. In acts of terrorism in Hyderabad on April 17, 23, 29 and 30, 11 people fell to their death.

    On May 3, India rejected a Pakistani offer for talks. On May 9 and 10, 16 persons were killed in Malir. In Hyderabad, 25 persons were killed on May 15, 17 and 19. Following the death of 80 more persons in Karachi and Hyderabad on May 26 and 27, curfew was clamped. One of the victims in Karachi was Senator Mohsin Siddiqui, who was killed for resisting paying protection money. 28 more persons were killed on May 28, while 20 persons were killed on May 29. On May 30 and 31, 73 persons were killed.

    President Ghulam Ishaq Khan proposed the holding of an all-parties conference on Sindh situation on June 6. MQM did not participate in this conference. By June 3, the number of deaths caused by terrorist attacks rose to 150.

    On July 1, Gen. Beg said that the army could restore peace in Sindh in a short time. On July 13, 45 persons were killed in a bomb blast in Hyderabad.

    Pakistan Steel Mills also passed into a state of unprecedented anarchy. MQM was once again accused of carrying out acts of mass murder through its terrorist wing called Black tigers. The kidnapped workers and officers of Pakistan Steel could only be released after the intervention of commander 5-Corps, Gen. Asif Nawaz.

    On August 22, acts of firing on MQM reception camps all over the city resulted in the killing of 27 persons. 55 persons were injured in these attacks.

    After a brief lull, masked gunmen reappeared on the streets of Karachi and Hyderabad, killing three and six persons respectively on September 8. Two more persons died in Hyderabad on September 10. There was heavy firing in the city on that day, and a petrol pump and a government office were set on fire. On September 17, Hamid Imtiaz Hanif, son of the State Bank governor, was kidnapped.

    On October 19, the cloth merchants of Mah#### Market in Karachi’s Saddar area paid dearly for removing the flag of a linguistic party from the top of the building. 82 shops in the market were gutted in a huge fire.

    The type of political and social tendencies, which MQM displayed during 1990, was in no way suitable to the national interests of Pakistan. It not only antagonized other communities, but also persecuted those Urdu speaking people who either opposed it actively, or were simply not interested in its politics. It embarked on the mission of creating a state within the state.

    The fact that MQM resorted to terrorism as a means of achieving anti-state objectives is clear to everyone who saw it grow from rags to riches in a short span of five years. It is not a mere coincidence that:

    MQM was a regular party to all the incidents of blood letting that took place in Karachi and Hyderabad since 1986

    Nowhere was the Urdu speaking population found involved as a community in racial killings, which remained the exclusive handiwork of its armed workers

    All the Urdu speaking, Punjabi, Pukhtoon, Sindhi and Baloch victims of terrorism in Sindh were killed because of their race.

    Five years of MQM also showed it to be a party, which avoided solutions to people’s problems as a consistent strategy of heightening alienation. MQM’s attacks on Pakistan’s integrity, and the kind of violent reactions it displayed to every move the Pakistani government made over the Kashmir problem inevitably put this party in an unpatriotic frame, out to carry India’s cause through the heart of Pakistan.

    MQM’s most favorite pill for its voters is the rhetoric that it wants to eliminate Waderas and feudal lords from Pakistani politics.

    On December 9, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced in Sanghar a grant of Rs 10 billion for Sindh. On December 11, in MQM’s Liaquatabad rally, he announced Rs 7 billion for Karachi. N December 17, the Jam-MQM government terminated the services of 32 assistant commissioners and 18 DSPs.

    1991

    Having settled in the corridors of power, MQM caused to set in the worst period of tyranny and persecution in the history of Sindh. It persecuted the press, destroyed political rivals with impunity, and organized a huge force of extortionists to discipline people and raise funds for the party. Dividing between them the affairs of urban and rural Sindh, Altaf Hussain ran the province of Sindh according to the menial whims and wildest fancies.

    This was also the year when for the first time dissent within the MQM grew open and strong. Afaq Ahmad and his friends were declared traitors and their sentence specified. The slogan “Quaid’s traitor deserves death” became the graffiti of every wall and the banner of every apartment house. MQM’s death squads were pulled back from the fronts against other races and turned against their own people.

    Altaf Hussain’s own nerves creaked under the threat of dissent, and he left Nine-Zero to take refuge in Abbasi Shaheed hospital on the ruse of a bad kidney. Security matters were taken back from the increasingly suspect party organization and placed in the care of more loyal APMSO. As the crisis grew, so did the need to enhance personal charisma. This was when the stories of miracles in Saudi Arabia got currency, and the “saint” leader’s images, complete with the mustaches and dark sunglasses, started appearing on tree leaves and mosque tiles.

    To convince the Punjabis of the spellbinding power of the Pir over his followers, a group of 37 MQM MNAs and MPAs was dispatched to Lahore Press Club to read before the journalists a written oath of allegiance. The test, which was not allowed to be circulated in Karachi, repeatedly referred to the “blind faith” of individual members in the leadership of Altaf Hussain.

    The press conference was held on July 25, a day after Lahore high court ordered the release of Afaq Ahmad and others. The press conference went on for two and a half hours, and all this while a telephone was available to Altaf Hussain in Abbasi Shaheed Hospital to hear the proceedings live (dailies Jang and Nawa-I-Waqt Lahaore, July 26, 1991). All the 37 members individually read their oaths before the newsmen. Dr Farooq Sattar said, “if I commit treachery against the Qauid, I will have denied my paternity”. Wasim Ahmad said, “if I go against the Qauid. I may not be of my mother” (daily Nawa-I-Waqt Lahroe, July 26, 1991).

    When the newsmen objected that they could not sit through the statements, which were more or less alike, some MQM members retorted by saying, “once we get a foothold in Lahore, then you will sit and listen, like they do in Karachi”. This led to a number of journalists walking out of the press conference in protest.

    Late in the evening of July 27, Pir Pagara’s sin-in-law, Salim Malik, was assassinated while returning from Gadani. The poor man died because the assassins thought it was Afaq Ahmad and his friends entering into Karachi from Balochistan. Two days later, the police for the murder arrested MQM terrorist, Iqbal Chand.

    1991 was, therefore, the year in which it became clear that MQM would not change its character, no matter who ruled the country. It showed itself to be a pressure group, which used Mohajirs to blackmail governments for attaining individual objectives and eliminating opponents. It launches bloody movements against governments, which wouldn’t pay it any attention, and keeps on tenterhooks those which are willing to get cozy.

    MQM’s bully also took Karachi’s press to task. When the press started reporting even half-truths about MQM, the gunmen went into action. Known journalist Maulana Salahuddin’s house was set on fire long before he was finally assassinated. Daily Dawn, eveninger “Star” and monthly “Herald” were prevented from distribution. Copies of dailies” Jang” and “The News” were burnt in thousands, and MQM chairman, Azim Tariq, openly threatened journalists when he said in a public meeting that they should “keep their Ka’aba in the right direction”. Zafar Abbas, Kamran Khan, Nafisa Hoodbhai and other journalists were attacked.

    During this year, when MQM was in power and had its ministers both in Islamabad and In Sindh, 27 police officers that refused to sidestep the law were murdered. They included inspector Mohammad Usman, inspector Malik Ehsan, Kazim Soomro etc.

    This year the MQM fought its political rivals on two fronts. One was opened against Islami Jamiatut-Talaba (IJT) and the other against the dissenters within its ranks. On both fronts, the “enemies” were either jailed or dismissed as dacoits and got killed.

    On January 3, the Jam-MQM cabinet decided to set up four special courts in Sindh. Following the death of Shaukat Shah and ahead of the senate elections on January 11.

    On February 20, MQM’s 28 MPA’s expressed their confidence in altaf Hussain’s leadership by submitting their resignations to chairman Azim Ahmad Tariq. On February 21, the federal government indefinitely postponed the holding of population census.

    On March 3, dissent within the MQM surfaced when the party expelled its provincial minister, Badar Iqbal on charges of financial embezzlement. Daily Dawn was warned to mend its ways and not to publish the statements of MQM’s opponents. On March 19, MQM’s armed hooligan robbed 21,000 copies of the newspaper. On March 21, in protest over MQM’s excesses against hawkers, daily Dawn suspended its publication.

    On April 30, the two Japanese students who had been kidnapped for ransom 45 days ago recovered. On July 17, MQM dissented Afaq Ahmad, Aamir Khan, Naim Akhtar, Iqbal Qureshi, Mohammad ounus and Naim Hashmat were arrested in Lahore. On September 29, journalists all over the country observed black day to protest over MQM attacks on newsmen. On October 1, terrorists bombed the house of known journalist, Mohammad Salahuddin, and put on fire. On October 11, the kidnapped Chinese engineers were recovered. On October 16, MQM’s Tariq Javed was appointed the acting chief minister of the province following Jam Sadiq’s departure to London for treatment is returned in November.

    On December 31, Altaf Hussain spent his last day in Pakistan. On an early morning flight on January 1, 1992, he left for England never to come back.

    Since Altaf Hussain’s arrival in England, he is operating his terrorist organization from London under the coverage of Muthaidda Qaumi Movement.

    1992

    Criminal activities by MQM, the outrages of its extortionists called the “Bhatta Mafia”, unabashed blackmailing of the trading and business community, relentless subversion of the law, and the growing incidence of deaths in the city’s torture cells forced the Nawaz Sharif government to order a military operation against “dacoits and terrorists” in Sindh. Sindh government endorsed this operation, but MQM leaders Azim Tariq, Salim Shahzad and Dr Imran Farooq objected to the word “terrorists” as one of the targets of this operation, demanding that it should be repealed.

    The operation was launched on May 28, 1992, and soon afterwards MQM severed all ties with the masses, going underground to start building its anti-state fighting force. In the meantime, the government filed cases of murder, kidnapping and larceny against Altaf Hussain on six different occasions. In view of the seriousness of the situation, Altaf Hussain, who was already residing in London, applied for political asylum in the USA, but the request was turned down.

    Soon the “non-political, unarmed” crusaders of five years ago had turned into a band of hooligans who were armed to their teeth, sniffing into every nook and corner of this huge metropolis in search of dissent and opposition. Their exploits became more than evident when following the onset of army operation, daily Dawn’s Ghulam Hasnain picked a dusty piece of human nose from one of MQM’s erstwhile torture cells in Landhi. So that’s what they had been up to, chopping off noses and ears, and then hanging the victims or putting them before the firing squads.

    On December 15, 1995, an increasingly worried Altaf Hussain announced to quit politics. “I am retiring from politics today, it has given me much pain”, he said. But as the underground fighting network began to shape up, Altaf was back on the scene, and his deputy Javed Langrha was already shouting directives to party activists from across the border in New Delhi.

    The fighting force that was put together in the back alleys of Karachi was based on a working system of logistics, communications and publicity, including regular and cellular telephone links between Karachi, London, Africa and Delhi, and the services of some capitalists, some city hospitals, some telephone department personnel, some loyalists in the city police and some journalists of local morning and evening newspapers. This force showed some speed by using the local police to abort the actions of operation personnel, but the more it stayed underground, the freer the Karachi press got. When Nawaz Sharif government registered criminal cases against Altaf and his cohorts, and relatives of the victims of MQM’s torture cells took out processions, MQM- (A) found itself isolated on the political scene.

    During its stay in Karachi, the army not only recovered a considerable number of firearms during siege and search operations, it also saved a number of victims from dying in MQM’s torture cells in Landhi and Lines Area. No innocent person was either jailed or otherwise persecuted during the entire army operation, and this is why MQM has not been able to build a case of human rights violations against the army, although it tried its level best to give the army a bad name.

    MQM had two good reasons to defame the army: first, its favorite army chief, General Mirza Aslam Beg, who was at the center of MQM’s grand designs to capture absolute power in the country, was no more in the saddle, having failed to convince the political leadership to give him an extension, and second, MQM’s attacks on the army gave a cushion to Delhi based Javed Langrha in winning Indians’ backing. The year 1992 brought a quick downfall to MQM, which had attained the glory just as quickly.

    On February 13, 1992, when MQM was still in power in Karachi although its leader was settling down for an indefinite stay in London, Shujaat, the cousin of Line Area’s Haqiqi leader Mansoor Chacha, was killed. Another person, Mohammad Asif, was injured in the same area when miscreants fired on Rangers. On February 24, Jamaat-e-Islami’s senator, Prof Khurshid Ahmad, stated that had forcefully induced 6,000 men in Pakistan Steel Mills. Nusrat Mirza, a leader of Mohajir Rabita Council, said if way was paved for Altaf Hussain’s return to the country, there would be more bloodshed in Karachi.

    Two police personnel were killed in Nazimabad on March 23. On April 21, a Haqiqi activist, Sami, was killed in Liaquatabad. On May 5, a Karachi industrialist, Azhar Iqbal, was killed. On May 9, five persons were killed in a Hyderabad hospital. On May 17, Aga Khan Foundation’s Ashiq Ali Hirji was kidnapped. His fate is yet to be known.

    On May 19, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif held parleys with the new chief minister of Sindh, Muzaffar Hussain Shah, and the Corps commander Karachi, on how to control the situation in the province. Later the same evening, the Prime Minister met with Altaf Hussain during a brief stopover in London. On June 4, the army came into Sindh. On June 19, to preempt possible clashes between the two MQM groups, army came into Karachi and imposed curfew. The entire MQM leadership went underground.

    On June 22, cases were filed against 13 persons including Altaf Hussain. On June 24, the army opened for general public a huge torture cell in Landhi. The same day the Karachi administration asked the people to demolish iron gates erected by MQM all over the city. On June 27, MQM revoked its agreement with the Nawaz Sharif government. On June 29, MQM members resigned their seats in the national and Sindh assemblies. On July 13, 12 MQM MPAs said they had submitted resignations under duress. On July 19, Sindh chief minister in an announcement dissociated from MQM. He told a press conference that Altaf would be arrested and put on trial.

    On September 8, police inspector Bahadur Ali arrested two MQM terrorists, Khalid and Asif Lala. They admitted to have assassinated the provincial election commissioner’s son and councilor Anwaar Ahmad.

    On November 7, MQM’s union chief in Pakistan Steel, Khalid Murtaza, was arrested on the charges of illegal confinement of some persons the previous year. Ashfaq Chief, a notorious assassin who was also arrested alongwith Murtaza, said, “I considered MQM to be the party of the oppressed, but I was made to do bad jobs. I repent”.

    On November 27, MQM chairman Azim Tariq surfaced from underground. He said “Altaf Hussain may disown me, he may call me a traitor, it is up to him, but God damn it, he has turned Karachi into a pond of blood” (Dailies Qaumi Akhbar, and Nawa-e-Waqt Lahore).

    1993

    On December 15, Altaf Hussain announced his retirement from politics. On December 24, a spokesman of the army said that action against terrorists had been completed. But the year 1993 furnished further proof of Altaf Hussain’s slippery cunning. He was not to renounce politics, nor allow the army to return to barracks without any damage. Lost pirdom had to be regained, more so when all it required was to draw more blood – and more publicity. Once he had taken pride in Azim Tariq, now he wanted him eliminated. He experimented with Rabita Committee to run party affairs, and brought up Senator Ishtiaq Azhar (who is back in the background).

    Elections were once again held in 1993, this time under the supervision of Moeen Qureshi’s caretaker government. Altaf Hussain boycotted the elections, then he participated in it, so that he missed the national assembly polls, but relented in time for elections to Sindh assembly. The early days of 1993 had proved beyond doubt that MQM politics consisted in rioting, terrorism and eliminating political dissenter, and that the only concern of the party remained the individual interests of its leaders. Renouncing politics, and then revoking the renunciation, was both dictated by personal interests. It also became increasingly clear during this year that Altaf Hussain will not return to the country.

    Attention was drawn to this following Murtaza Bhutto’s return to the country after 16 years of exile. Many people thought Altaf, too, should make a comeback, but Altaf only contented himself with asking people in his telephonic addresses whether he should come back. Towards the end of 1993, MQM began to move its fighting network against the government and still continues on that path. Meanwhile, whatever little politics its leaders in Karachi are playing is meant to save there own skin; if they withdraw the drill machine of one terrorist or another might turn them cold.

    Four basic features marked MQM activities during 1993:

    1.

    They failed to gain the advantage for an Urdu speaking individual or community
    2.

    They failed to promote trust and understanding with other parties
    3.

    They failed to show MQM as an organized and active political opposition
    4.

    They failed to promote democratic values.

    On the contrary, the group used its leverage to restore peace in Karachi to demand particular ministerial portfolios, other concessions and the withdrawal of criminal cases against some of its leaders. The idea was to return to the era of mass plunder by the likes of M.A. Jalil and Ishratul Ebad. MQM is trained in using terrorism and destruction as its only political weapons, and which had no respect for civilized, enlightened politics.

    On February 10, 1993, 13 persons were killed in a bomb attack in Kotri. On February 12, Azim Tariq excused himself from joining forces with Haqiqi. On March 12, Altaf Hussain revoked his decision to renounce politics, and announced that since Azim Tariq had breached his confidence, he was handing the party to the care of the Rabita Committee.

    On March 14, DIG Jails was killed in a parcel bomb attack. On March 18, Azim Tariq courted arrest. Two days later he was released on bail. On May 1, he was assassinated by terrorists led by Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Hashamuz Zafar (Khalid is presently living with Altaf Hussain in London). On May 4, Tareq Javed was elected the new chairman of the party. On September 18, Haqiqi called a citywide strike. On October 1, MQM announced its decision to boycott elections. Altaf Hussain reiterated this position on October 4. On October 7, the group reversed its decision and announced that it will participate in the provincial polls.

    On October 25, the new chief minister of Sindh, Syed Abdullah ordered to create the new district of Malir in Karachi division. Altaf Hussain used this decision as a plank to shape his new fighting strategy against democracy. True to his Hitlerian elements, Altaf was once again flexing muscles to bring terrorism in Karachi.

    1994

    MQM spent Rs 30 million of its ill-earned money on more or less fifty telephonic addresses made by Altaf Hussain from London during 1994. Since MQM never encouraged questions, no one among Altaf’s telephonic audience had the thought or the courage to ask where this money came from, or to what end was it being used? It was being used to sow the seeds of separatism in people’s minds.

    The spell of the telephonic addresses was carried to the public at large during the funeral procession of Tanvir Ahmad, an MQM activist killed in an encounter with the police. The mourners chanted the slogans of “break Pakistan”, which were shown to the world by India’s ZeeTV on February 20, 1994. Earlier, newspapers had reported another slogan gaining currency among the party rank and file: Formula for peace in Sindh, “half for you, half for us”.

    On February 11, 1994, while addressing on phone the party workers in Azizabad, Altaf Hussain had said that the establishment of Malir district was a sign of slavery for Mohajirs, and that Mohajirs would rather die than being enslaved. We cannot live in this kind of Sindh”, he further said. On February 18 Altaf telephonically addressed sympathizers in Karachi’s Hasrat Mohani Hall. He asked them, “how long will you wait, how will you live”? The audience responded, “half for you, half for us”. The boycott of daily Jang was announced in this meeting and it was decided that hawkers would not be permitted to distribute Jang the next morning.

    On March 3, MQM MPA Arif Siddiqui tried to attack MQM’s estranged member, Shamim Ahmad, inside the assembly building. Local bodies’ minister, Nadir Magsi, prevented the attack by coming in the way. The scheming MQM’s members later tactfully drew his armed guards into an ugly conflict. Although Nadir Magsi tried his utmost to avoid scandalous fallout, defending an overtly offensive Arif Siddiqui against his own guards, MQM had succeeded in creating an issue (The Frontier Post Lahore, March 4, 1994).

    MQM activists burnt three vehicles in protest over this incident, and killed two persons in Liaquatabad where an Eid bazaar was in progress. Four persons were wounded in that attack. Life was disrupted in Karachi. Three days later, an MQM death squad, headed by Kamran Jaffery, put five Rangers and police officials, including a captain of Pakistan Army, against the wall in Baldia town and pumped hundreds of bullets into them. The group later shamelessly denied any involvement in this incident. In order to boost its strength, MQM called a strike on March 27 in which tree persons were killed and 17 vehicles burnt.

    On April 13, on a telephonic address to audience in Azizabad’s Khurshid Begum Complex, Altaf Hussain said, “If Sindh is divided, we won’t be responsible for it”. He further said: “Friends. Listen to me carefully. Those of you who were given receipts for contributions should deposit the sums with sector incharge. If the sector people are listening let them send it to me in London. Some sectors haven’t sent me their zakat and fitra deposits. If you don’t send it, you won’t get new receipts. Understand? For God’s sake expedite the transfer of money, these contributions are the secret of our success. And listen, help the circulation of daily “Amn”. Read every word of the statements published in this newspaper. And one more thing, our comrades are in jails. Send contributions for them too. I want to help them.

    On April 26, MQM launched is campaign to offer voluntary arrests, but it fizzled out in three days. On April 29, two persons were killed during a clash between the police and MQM activists. Many policemen were wounded in the clash. During yet another telephonic address, the Pir who cast his spell from across seven seas was saying, “carry your excesses to the limit. But Mohajirs will not break. Sindh will break”.

    Up to May 4, six people died in rioting in Gulbahar, Nazimabad and elsewhere in the city. On May 26, MQM staged a demonstration in Washington.

    On June 11, MQM restarted firing in the city. Three persons were killed in Landhi on June 12. On June 20 a local court issued un-bailable warrants of arrest against Altaf Hussain and others in the murder case of Senator Mohsin Siddiqui. On June 28, MQM operatives killed SHO Bahadur Ali alongwith six other policemen.

    In July, attacks on mosques and Imambargahs in Karachi started taking place. On July 13, six persons were killed in an attack on a bus. On July 24, four persons, including a cop and an Edhi Trust volunteer, were killed in an attack on Imambargah Kashmiri. MQM Haqiqi’s finance secretary, Sardar Ahmad, was killed on August 8. In reaction to this, trouble broke out in Karachi Central and East in which two persons were killed and nine vehicles put on fire. Factional clashes led to three more deaths on August 11. On August 17, unidentified assailants killed notorious terrorist, Ashraf Langrha. On August 18, six dead bodies, stuffed in gunny bags, were recovered form different parts of the city.

    On September 10, Altaf Hussain sated that “Mohajirs want their geographical boundaries to be determined” (Qaumi Akhbar). On September 17, eight, persons died in incidents of indiscriminate firing in different parts of Karachi. On September 26, three persons were arrested and 49 weapons recovered during an operation in Lines Area. 320 weapons were recovered during a search operation in Korangi.

    On October 1, in an interview with the Voice of America, Altaf Hussain said: “Although we have only invited suggestions on a separate province, a new province will be in the interest of the country” (daily Amn, Oct 2, 1994). In another statement the following day, Altaf said that the creation of a new province would result in everyone getting his due rights.

    On November 11, firing in Gujjar Nala, Abbasi Shaheed and Gulbahar areas led to the killing of eight persons, including an officer of Pakistan Air Force. On November 19, continuing violence in Liaquatabad and Korangi resulted in the death of 12 persons, including a police constable. 21 persons were injured. Police and army vehicles also came under attack.

    In December 1994, 49 persons were killed, including 10 police officials. Police paid a heavy price for fighting terrorism in Karachi in 1994. 70 policemen were killed during this year, which also saw the death of six Rangers and four army personnel. Government officials remained the targets of terrorist, and it was a harassed and demoralized police force that took over after the army pulled out on November 30, 1994.

    1995
    But while a new official strategy was soon to lift the police’s morale and place it on a higher ground against a weakening terrorist outfit, the latter diversified its targets in order to preserve its leftover strength. This augured ill for those laborers who had come to Karachi from such far-flung areas as Hazara, Faisalabad and Khushab to earn a living. They became the targets of a new look strategy of terrorism in 1995.

    Apart from this, Karachiites also saw the worst form of religious fanaticism emerge on Karachi’s political scene, and then die its own death, in 1995. Hundreds of people died in terrorist attacks in the first ten months of this year.

    As many as 433 persons died in the first three months of 1995 alone. The victims included 234 nonpartisans, 56 TNFJ activists, 49 Haqiqi activists, 38 activists of Sipah-e-Sahaba, 28 activists of MQM and 28 Rangers and police personnel.

    The holy month of Ramzan in 1995 began with the killing of three persons including two women. On February 4, 11 persons were killed in terrorist attacks in Gulberg, Hyderabad Colony and Gulshan-e-Iqbal. On February 5, the government Pakistan observed a solidarity day with the Kashmiris, and rallies were held all over the country to back the Kashmiris’ cause. But MQM refused to take part in it. On the contrary, it embarked on a retaliatory campaign, leading to the death of 20 persons in different acts of terrorism in the city.

    The dead included 11 workers of the Harkatul Ansaar organisation who were manning a Kashmir day camp in Liaquatabad. Six persons were killed on February 7, three persons died in factional fighting on February 10, and two persons were killed on February 11. On February 13, masked gunmen shot dead 11 persons, including five children. Five persons, including a Haqiqi activist, were killed on February 15, while three persons were shot dead near Nazimabad’s Gol Market on February 16. On February 17, three persons including an MQM activist were killed. On February 18, 10 persons, including four Shia brothers, were killed. On February 19, three persons were killed, including a sub-editor of weekly Jhalak magazine.

    Seven persons were killed on February 20,three on February 21, five on February 22,and three on February 23. Senator, Shafqat Mahmood, in a statement condemned MQM leader Anwar Khan’s close working with the Indian delegation during Geneva conference, and called upon the MQM either to disown Anwar Khan or admit to its links with the Indian government. Seven persons were killed on February 24. 25 more were killed on February 25, including 20 worshippers in a city Imambargah. Four persons were killed on February 27. ON February 28, president of Mehran Bank, Younus Habib, was sentenced to 17 years’ imprisonment for embezzling more than two billion rupees, including Rs 140 million, which he had paid to Mirza Aslam Beg.

    On March 1, Altaf Hussain vowed that he would never allow Karachi to become a city of Punjab. He said that bad days were yet in store for the city. On this day, two PSF workers were killed. On March 2 (the eve of Eidul Fitr), seven persons were killed PECH Society. On Eid day, two Haqiqi activists were shot dead in the Jamshed Quarters area. The next day an MQM activist was killed. Nine persons were killed on March 5, including a Rangers sleuth, three police officials and five Haqiqi activists. On March 6, four persons were killed including a police constable. Two police officials were among the six persons killed on March 7.

    On March 8, terrorists killed seven persons including two officials of US consulate. Ten persons were killed on March 9. On March 10, the black Friday, 21 people were killed, including eight children who died in a bomb blast near Malir’s Hussainia mosque. Four persons were killed on March 11. On March 12, MQM activists’ raid on Haqiqi’s Pak Colony office resulted in the death 12 persons. Four more persons were killed on March 13. Three persons died on March 17, five on March 18 and two on March 19. Two persons were killed on March 20, and three including a cop, were killed on March 21. The same day the government announced to launch action against terrorists in Karachi. Sindh government held an all parties’ conference for the restoration of peace in Karachi, but MQM refused to attend. Two persons were killed on March 26, two on March 27, and three on March 28.

    In the month of April, 88 persons were killed in terrorist attacks, factional fighting and police encounters. The victims included 26 nonpartisans, 21 personnel of law enforcing agencies, 13 activists of MQM, 13 Haqiqi activists, 11 activists of Sipah-e-Mohammad, four activists of Sipah-e-Sahaba and one PPP activist.

    Clashes between the two MQM groups intensified during April. The April 24 police actin against MQM to vacate its occupation of Mir Garden in Hyderabad prompted the group to intensify its action against the government officials as well. Rocket launchers came in use for the first time in these months, and government properties as well as Rangers check posts were targeted with these heavy weapons.

    Altaf Hussain in a statement said that constitution be amended to pave the way for his party’s demands. MQM terrorist, Zahid Andha, was arrested on April 8. He was responsible for burning a Blue Lines coach, and with it seven passengers, near Al-Karam square in Liaquatabad. On April 18, terrorists killed eight persons in North Nazamabad, including four Haqiqi activists. On April 25, 15 private and government vehicles were set on fire in Hyderabad. On April 27, 16 vehicles, a post office and a pumping station were burnt in Hyderabad. On April 29, terrorists raided a Rangers checkpoint, the Rangers’ camp and a police station, killing one police ASI.

    In May 1995, 35 personnel of law enforcing agencies were killed. Other victims of terrorism included 72 nonpartisans, 16 activists of MQM 7 Haqiqi activists and four activists of PPP. Most victims were kidnapped, tortured, killed, and their bodies dumped in various parts of the city. These incidents started in May, and continued into July, 289. Of these, 434 were nonpartisans. 52 members of the law enforcing agencies, 29 activists of MQM, 19 Haqiqi activists.

    35 persons were killed and 89 vehicles burnt during the first five days of June. Pushto speaking people suffered the most losses in terms of property. They protested, and MQM had to issue a statement from London telling his activists not to burn transport, but to continue with the strikes. This was a most significant statement. Altaf ordered an end to the burning of transport. If his activists were not involved in arson, as his party leaders have been asserting time and again, he would have no need to issue such a directive.

    On May 5, the US consulate announced that in future it would issue visas from Lahore. The reason cited for this decision was terrorism in Karachi. On the Eidul Azha day (May 10), terrorists attacked Shah Faisal police station, killing one police constable. Seven persons, including Rangers personnel, were killed on May 12. On May 14, Pakistan announced that it would observe a black day on May 19 in protest over the desecration of Charar Sharif shrine in Kashmir. On the eve of the black day, on May 18, terrorists in citywide attacks killed 15 persons, including a Rangers officer. Also, arsonists put on fire five vehicles and a saving center. On May 19, MQM remained quite. It called a mourning day on May 22. Acts of terrorism on the eve of the day led to the killing of five persons and the burning of several vehicles. On the day itself, terrorists killed 23 persons, including 4 policemen, Rangers personnel and a PPP activist.

    In the month of June, MQM embarked on a strategy to ignite linguistic riots all over Sindh. Though the strategy failed to pay dividends, many Karachi based persons with families in the interior Sindh or elsewhere in the country lost their lives in the process. In this connection, a group of MQM terrorists raided the KDA registration office in Liaquatabad’s Supermarket area. 10 Sindhi-speaking officials were isolated from the rest of the staff, and shot dead. MQM terrorists Rehan Kana and Saeed Cheetah were involved in this operation. The story was almost entirely told by a local evening paper, Awam, on that day, but complete details came to light after the arrest of Saeed Cheetah and his subsequent narrative before the press in Islamabad.

    The Supermarket incident blew up in the face of MQM. The party stood exposed and a feeling of resentment was unmistakably rising among the people. MQM countered this by hitting at a tender spot of people’s psyche. It engineered the dishonoring of women in a series of incidents to appease public opinion. The first to suffer this ignominy was Farzana Sultan. MQM alleged that more than men ****d her on June 22. Medical reports drawn by both the Sindh government and the Aga Khan hospital.

    These reports are attached in end of this report. However, negated MQM version. But this did not stop MQM from calling for day of mourning with its concomitant loss of human life and property. A close associate of late Azim Tariq and a potential witness of his murder case, S.M. Tariq, was killed during this unrest MQM promptly laid the blame on official agencies. On June 25, the government was served a 48-hour notice to arrest the molesters of Farzana and the killers of S.M. Tariq. On June 26, Rabita Committee announced a weekly strike on Fridays and Saturdays with the express purpose of crippling the country economically.

    Between January and June 1995, police killed 57 terrorists and arrested 319 others in 143 encounters. On June 1, bomb blasts took place in Sindh Assembly and Lyari area. Rocket attacks were launched against the police in Orangi. On June 2, terrorists hit and blasted several electric transformers in Karachi Central, besides setting 25 vehicles on fire. 38 more vehicles were burnt on June 3. On June 4, 10 persons were killed and 20 vehicles set on fire. Life in Karachi Central came to a standstill, and daily wage earners girded their loins to face another spell of starvation. On June 5, seven persons were killed and 17 vehicles burnt. Ten persons, including five policemen, were killed on June 10. A child was killed in an RPG attack in Clifton area on June 11.

    Nine persons were killed, including two policemen. On June 15, 24 persons were killed, including the 10 Sindhis who were lined up and shot in the KDA registration office located at 3rd floor of Super market in Liaquatabad. RPGs again figured on June 21. Ten persons were killed. On June 22, Farzana Sultan was brought to Karachi Press Club at 9:30 p.m. for a press conference. On June 24, terrorists burnt four bogies of Chanab Express, and robbed the weapons they were carrying for Rangers in Karachi. 30 persons were killed and 23 vehicles burnt on June 25.

    Law enforcing agencies came into action in July. Government issued orders that terrorist control over some government property and a number of private houses in Korangi area be vacated. On July 5,6, 13 and 24, the police engaged terrorists in encounters, killing 10 and arresting 6. Property and arms recovered from these terrorists included 11 stolen vehicles and two motorbikes, two wireless sets, a klashnikov, a rocket launcher, four rifles, two pistols, a repeater gun and 559 rounds of ammunition. An operation of the same nature was conducted in Orangi on July 2, 5, and 23 in which 55 criminals, including 31 Bengalis, were arrested.

    MQM called violent strikes on June 30, July 1, 7, 8 and 9. On July 1, 19 persons including a police ASI were killed, while 17 more persons died on July 2, including a Rangers officer and a police constable. Six persons were killed on July 3, and six more were killed on July 4, including a woman and a cop. 11 persons died on July 5, eight on July 6, 11 on July 7, 13 on July 8, 10 on July 9, six on July 10. On July 1, 16 persons including two PPP activists, two cops, a doctor and a woman were killed. On July 12, six persons including a police ASI were killed. On July 13, 12 persons were killed including a police ASI. Four persons were killed on July 14, 10 including a PTV employee were killed on July 15, while eight persons including an army lance naik, a PPP activist and the crime reporter of daily Sang-e-Meel were killed on July 16.

    On July 29, terrorists shot and killed the son of a local PML (Nawaz) leader who had in a TV appearance appreciated the Rangers’ action against terrorists in Orangi. On August 2, the dreaded MQM terrorist, Farooq Dada (whom Altaf Hussain insisted on calling Farooq Patni), was killed in police encounter alongwith comrades Ghaffar Mada, Javed Michael and Babar Deputy. Police in 15 murder cases wanted Dada, which in the local Karachi slang means a bully.

    In retaliation, the MQM terrorist killed 24 persons, including SDM Nawaz Khushk, on August 3. On August 6, another front ranking MQM terrorist, Fahim commando, was arrested alongwith three other terrorists. Commando was wanted in murder cases of sub-inspector Bahadur Ali, Haqiqi leader Mansoor Chacha, MQM leader S.M. Tariq two DSPs and one Ds Ranger. On August 15, another MQM terroris

  260. “Altaf Hussain- in a demonstration with Jiyé Sindh at Hyderabad in 1987- burnt Pakistan Flag and had said: ‘Recognizing Pakistan is the greatest mistake…‘ I was a G.O.C at Hyderabad at that time…”

    The Military Operation was a righteous operation carried out against the armed resisters and MQM (Haqeeqi) was also taken help from as only they knew about the locations of existing torture cells.

    Had the operation been successful, Naseer-ullah Babar’s operation wouldn’t have been needed in the later years, He added, and that had the operation been successful, Karachi would have been at peace today!

    He further added that MQM (Altaf Hussain)’s claim about 15000 death is wrong as this operation was carried out against the culprits and only those died who had raised weapons against this operation, and that this operation was carried out only for one month.

    Brig. Asif Haroon at GEO News (Meray Mutabiq with Dr. Shahid Masood dated August 31, 2009) disclosed the following:

    “There were some reports that MQM had plans to establish Urdu Desh or Jinnah Pur, map“

    “It had been discussed that Jinnah Pur’s maps and posters were recovered from MQM Unit Office Karachi.” – (Press Conference on June 24, 1992 at Hyderabad)

    Brig. (R) Saulat Raza, Former Director ISPR stated on Capital Talk on August 31, 2009 with Hamid Mir:

    “…on 19th of June, 1992, Flag, Maps and Pamphlets and other literature concerning Jinnah Pur were recovered from an office of MQM…”

  262. To: Honourable British PM

    This is stated with very great disappointment and displeasure to let you remind regarding an International Terror Master who is also the leader of fascist party MQM (now Mutahidda Qaumi Mahaz; previously Mohajir Qaumi Movement), a Pakistani fugitive who is enjoying protection in UK and you have protected and covered him under Your Own Wings, his name is Altaf Hussain.

    Target Killing and Mass Murdering is the mission of Altaf and MQM at large. Keeping with his terrorist traditions and mission, Altaf Hussain master-minded and then micro-managed the slaughter of more than 40 innocent people of Karachi. Altaf Hussain is carrying out all his sadistic urges from the comforts of his office in London using his Sofa and a Telephone, according to Daily Telegraph London, May14, 2007 issue.

    “The man in charge of Pakistan’s largest city, Karachi, was at his usual command-and-control post at the weekend from a sofa in north London.
    As his fiefdom descended into brutal violence, with the deaths of at least 40 people reported amid the worst political bloodshed Pakistan has witnessed in years, Altaf Hussain directed his followers by telephone from a safe place more than 5,000 miles away.
    His headquarters, or “international secretariat”, is not in the Pakistani port city but housed in a red-brick office block opposite a supermarket on Edgware High Street”

    We therefore assert that the British government, supporting the so-called war against terror, would do well to look into its own backyard as to how one of its adopted citizens, enjoying its protection has unleashed terror in a city thousands of miles away. The UK government may obtain transcripts of Altaf Hussain’s telephonic conversations a week before 12 May, when the wanton killing occurred, and a week later to ascertain how deeply he was involved in the heinous crimes in Karachi.

    Peace loving people in Britain and around the world want to know how you make a difference between Osama Bin Laden and Altaf Hussin. Since you are so sure that Osama has used Afghanistan and has carried out attacks against innocent civilians in NY, USA. What Altaf Hussain is doing? It’s OK for him to use his base-camp in London and carry out attacks against innocent Pakistani civilians? It’s OK as far he doesn’t wear a Turban and keep a Muslim’s Style beard and does not say the name of God before killing?

    Altaf Hussain has killed people like Hakim Saeed, the former governor of Sindh (Pakistan), the founder of Hamdard University and many other renowned institutions. His only crime was, he did not bow down to Altaf Hussain and rejected his philosophy of violence, killing and mass murdering. He was an Indian Migrant to Pakistan, as the parents of Altaf were.

    Altaf assassinated Salah-u-Din, the chief editor of weekly Takbber. His “crime” was exposing the crimes of Altaf et al. He had the same ethnic background as Altaf Hussain has. They also have got the “credit” for killing a US Counselor in the port city of Karachi. These are just few examples of Altaf et al’s heinous crimes against opponents and political rivals besides hundred and thousands other target killing and mass murdering.

    Altaf safely escaped two times form the reach of justice to UK, through the help of the notorious and ever infamous Pakistani Secret Service Agency ISI, who are the real founders of this Gang. Now Altaf’s criminal gang is a partner in Government with the current military dictator Parvez Musharaf. A proven criminal and Altaf’s right hand person is the governor of Sindh Province. They also have the local government in the city of Karachi, (many thanks to the Military). Musharf phones and takes dictation from Altaf. The question is what fears Altaf going back to Pakistan to make speeches in the public instead of using his London office telephone.

    People around the world are rightly wondering that how a former Chicago Cabby driver, who lost his refuge claim in the US, successfully became a UK citizen. Why British authorities turn their eyes blind at him? How you can deny that UK is not a safe haven for Terrorists and International Criminals.

    Peace-loving People throughout the world rightly consider the UK government an accomplice to Altaf Hussain’s crimes against innocent Pakistanis. We wonder how the British would have reacted were such a man to sit outside and trigger mayhem inside the UK? We also wonder to know how Altaf live like a King in London. Where is the money coming from? His private life is more luxurious and comfortable than any other average British citizen. Your government never got a chance to think about that?

    Honourable British PM!

    Take a chance and click the following web link just for reference purpose:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MQM

    “International organizations such as the UNHCR and the United States Department of State have cited examples of MQM’s perceived involvement in terrorism”

    We demand of the British government that Altaf Hussain be expelled from the United Kingdom, Freeze MQM (Altaf) bank accounts and declare MQM (Altaf) as a terrorist organization.

    Better late than never done.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

  263. MQM workers booked for killing policemen

    Several MQM workers have been booked for killing Inspector Nasir-ul-Hasan who took active part in 1990′s ‘Karachi operation’. The officials told Dawn that initial investigations into the killing of the Brigade SHO and his guard showed that at least six assailants took part in the attack.

    Published news reports say workers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement have been booked in the murder case of a police officer and his armed guard who were ambushed in a Lines Area locality on Thursday evening, officials said on Friday.

    Capital City Police Officer Waseem Ahmed confirmed that the suspects nominated in the FIR (308/2010) were associated with the MQM. However, an MQM spokesman declined to comment.

    Inspector Nasir-ul-Hasan, the SHO of the Brigade police station, who was known for the active role he played in the ‘Karachi operation’ of the 1990s, along with his armed guard, Khurram Butt, was targeted when he was returning to the police station in his private jeep.

    The FIR was registered on behalf of the state at the Brigade police station under Sections 302 (premeditated murder), 324 (attempted murder), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 392 (punishment for robbery) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code read with Section 7-A of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.

    “Those nominated in the FIR are Shabbir alias Dhobi, Taqi Butt alias Mamu, Nadim, Asif alias Chitta and their eight to 10 accomplices,” said an official at the Brigade police station.

    He said that so far no arrest had been made in the case.

    In his brief response to Dawn’s queries, the CCPO said: “Being the chief of the city police, I assure everyone that the investigations would be carried out purely on merit and no one should have any doubt about it.”

  264. Last evening while having dinner together, when one of my British colleague, who is also engaged with a famous media group in London and actively writes about Pakistani politics, has inquired as ‘why Altaf Hussain wants to enter in Punjab politics?’ I became curious as I have no idea that any British journalist could get involved in Pakistani politics especially politics of Karachi or Muhajirs upto that level where a local leader is trying to portray his party in another province of Pakistan !

    With a blank face, I nodded as ‘what do you think!’

    She said, ‘his slogan is quite appealing; representation of 98% oppressed class and in Punjab there are number of opportunities for MQM!’

    ‘What opportunities?’ I inquired in an exclamation

    She has started revealing her last two months activities in Karachi, ‘I spend last two months in Karachi, trying to know what exactly MQM had achieved so as they think that now Punjab ground is ready for them to enter.’

    ‘Basically MQM has failed to achieve their targets originally set forth by them, especially Altaf Hussain such as abolishing the quota system in Sind for Karachi residents, repatriation of Beharis (people who claim to be Pakistanis during 1971 war) living in refugee camps in Bangladesh, and equal rights for the Urban population of Sind, especially in Karachi, Hyderabad, Nawabshah, and Meerpurkhas. These three were the foundation stones for Muhajir Qoumi Movement formation and none of them has achieved in last 20 years!’ She continued her conversation

    I was shocked with the in depth of knowledge of a British girl who only spends 60 days in a city and knows much about its ethnic politics. I was enjoying and I inquired further to provoke her for more information gain!

    ‘What have you learnt is those 60 days politically out of Karachi politics?’ I had thrown another question

    ‘Something, with that I could write a detailed report. Such as the history of MQM since 1988 elections as under what circumstances they had won the municipal elections and then successive local bodies or national elections and their entry in Islamabad . The way, they had bargained with PPP or IJI in 80s or 90s, the blood bath of Karachi and MQM role in it, 1992 Army Operation against the MQM criminal elements who were trying to seek outside help, the way they had planted their own ‘men’ in all education & local bodies departments in Sind side by side with Sindhis to help MQM in election process. The way, they take control of vicinities through their sector in charges and powerful personalities, not brought to light for common Muhajirs.’ She added

    ‘You know, what are sector in charges?’ I asked vehemently as I felt that she knew less about the deep inside of MQM operational process!!!

    ‘Yes dear, I know more than many. They are the most powerful men in MQM and directly answerable to Altaf Hussain or MQM UK ’s team without any intermediate authority. They are the one who run MQM as per the orders of UK office.’ She answered categorically

    ‘Ok, what’s MQM motive in Punjab or sometime they voiced their concerned about entering Kashmir politics too!’ I brought back my first question

    ‘Simple – all have to understand. MQM has no more activity left in Karachi . They won the elections, they are in power corridors since long even it is a military dictator or a democratic President or a democratic dictator all the time you would find MQM in power corridors. MQM main motive wasn’t the three points I highlighted before. They want to be in ruling class sitting next to landlords of Sind , even though they call themselves as the representatives of depressed classes. None of the member of provincial or national assembly could speak on his or her own behalf. All have been given strict guidelines to speak and mostly very few are allowed to speak with press.’ She continued her sermon like speech and I was enjoying

    ‘Have you noticed the fate of Aamir Liquat Hussain, how he is kicked out of the party & ministerial portfolio when he had disagreement with Altaf Hussain over Salman Rushdi issue. He was hardcore and diehard member of MQM since Daily Percham days.’ She added and I was amazed over her insight know how about MQM.

    ‘I met with Aamir Liquat but he didn’t open up his mind. Probably, the fear inside as what could happen with him if he speaks out openly. That’s how MQM treats their MNAs or MPAs.’ Do you know this she inquired?

    ‘By keeping this status, MQM has no other agenda to divert the Muhajir community from the original issues. That’s how they crafted another “subject” entering into Punjab politics where they have no roots and ground to stand. That’s how, if you had noticed those they have been hired in Punjab to hoist MQM flag have no clean record. And they would be protected from Karachi or London by press releases or political slogans as ‘MQM workers are been targeted in Lahore & other parts of Punjab by Sharif government.’’ She replied

    ‘There’s no substance in MQM political agenda for common Punjabi population; Altaf Hussain’s past is full of terrorist activities, right from daily strikes during late Benazir first term till 1992 operation beginning moments then killing of Azeem Ahmed Tariq, the Chairman of MQM and you couldn’t find any statement from MQM for the apprehension of those who had committed this killing. Then Afaq Ahmed & Aamir Khan’s dissident moments and killing of hundreds of Muhajir youngsters between the Mutahhida and Muhajir Qoumi Movement splinter groups inter-fighting and killing each other workers. Hope you remember the moments when Altaf Hussain became the “Peer of Karachi” under the influence of interior Sind landlords and peers. That’s MQM past. Is he going to offer same to the poor people of Punjab ?’ she became little emotional

    ‘Yes, he would try to broaden the gap between the Northern & Southern Punjab. Sarieki belt is quite unhappy with their Lahori brethren and politicians like Altaf Hussain might gain ground by fuelling the emotions of hatred among them in Punjab using the name of rights for Sariakei people. Also Punjab might become the battle ground for ethnic groups and MQM Punjab workers could take refuge among them for any inter-group fighting by leveraging most out of it in Karachi .’ She explained and I couldn’t believe this now

    ‘You could find Altaf Hussain raising his voice in favour of Pakistan Army nowdays against Taliban. Do you know his press releases in 1992 when the same Army was conducting the operation against the criminal elements of MQM in Sindh, he was totally against of Pak Army and Pakistan itself. Do you know how an army major (Major Kaleem) was abused in Karachi?’ She mentioned and I have no other option to say yes!

    By that time, we were able to finish our meal and I said to her ‘thank you for nice dinner’ and we departed. On way home, I was just in deep thoughts, what if the ‘fears’ of a foreigner could come true about MQM and Altaf Hussain then Punjab would be facing another blood bath through the hands of MQM and Lahore will have same fate like Karachi in 1992!!!!

  265. Karachi’s Beirut-style civil war

    The MQM knows that the threat to its monopoly over street power stems from only one community — the Pakhtuns — so it has taken upon itself the task of browbeating them into submission

    The recent violence in Karachi has left scores of people dead. Many of them belonged to the Pakhtun community. This is not the first time that the Pakhtuns were targeted in various parts of the city. Karachi hosts the largest concentration of an urban Pakhtun population, surpassing Peshawar, Quetta or any other city in the country. Some estimates put the number of Pakhtuns in Karachi at nearly seven million out of a 17 million population.

    Over the last nearly 10 years, the Pakhtuns have almost solely depended on Karachi to make a living. Geopolitical events in the Pakhtun-dominated areas such as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, FATA and northern Balochistan (partly due to the Baloch-dominated government’s discrimination and partly because of the Baloch insurgency) almost diminished the chance for the Pakhtuns to have a meaningful source of livelihood.

    They are involved in low skilled jobs in Karachi. I have been tipped off that the Pakhtun owned hotels and dhaabas are being put out of commission overnight. There are also reports that the Pakhtuns are being systematically sought out and removed from Urdu-speaking areas. Removal means eviction by landlords, refusal to buy goods from Pakhtun businesses and so on. Though the Sindh government has, as usual, blamed unknown ‘miscreants’ as being involved, let us face the fact: the MQM is again blamed for its involvement in this violence.

    The MQM has a dark history. There were over 25 political workers killed in May 2007 when the MQM resorted to violence to prevent Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry — who, at the time, had been suspended by military ruler Pervez Musharraf — from addressing lawyers in Karachi. The MQM was acting like a local bully for President Musharraf who had always been supported by the MQM.

    It has always tried to maintain an iron grip on all public activities related to the Urdu-speaking populace. It has targeted the press, burnt thousands of copies of a popular daily, looted the offices of another newspaper and attacked the homes of journalists. The aim of such terror activities was to force the Urdu-speaking dominated media in Karachi to give the MQM prominent coverage for its activities.

    The MQM has monopolised the Urdu-speaking community’s power by literally beating, torturing and killing the workers of their opponents. Therefore, it has not only targeted ethnic rival groups but has also wiped out internal dissidents (Mohammad Waseem, Ethnic Conflict in Pakistan: The Case of MQM).

    The MQM knows that the threat to its monopoly over street power stems from only one community — the Pakhtuns — so it has taken upon itself the task of browbeating them into submission. However, the MQM’s policy, which is heavily stacked against the Pakhtuns, may backfire.

    Since there is no going back for the Pakhtuns and other minorities from Karachi, the Pakhtuns are likely to resort to forming militias for their protection. They might be tempted to adopt vigilantism, as every Pakhtun is culturally wired to obtain arms and take revenge for any loss. They are also likely to reverse what ANP leader Shahi Said termed as an “ongoing process of ethnic cleansing” of the Pakhtuns in Karachi.

    The moderate Pakhtun leadership of the ANP might not be able to control the potential militant brand of Pakhtuns hardened by the MQM’s highhandedness. Of course the MQM vigilantes will retaliate. Thus the worst-case scenario will become a self-fulfilling prophecy: Karachi will begin to resemble a replay of Beirut where, in the 1970s, there were massacres of the Palestinian inhabitants of Tel al-Zaatar and Karantina by the Christians and of the Christian inhabitants of Damour by the Palestinians.

    It is high time that policy makers in Islamabad seriously think about breaking the MQM’s stranglehold on Pakistan’s economic jugular vein, i.e. Karachi. And the only way to do that is to break the political monopoly of the MQM on different power levers.

    First, proportional representation (the process enlisted in the UK after hundreds of years of the old ‘first-past-the-post system’) should be adopted so that the electoral system is not biased against smaller political parties. It is common that in the ‘first-past-the-post system’, major parties obtain the main advantage despite getting an overall minority share of the total votes polled.

    Secondly, the redrawing of existing constituencies in Karachi should be done on the basis of ethnic rather than linguistic demographics, as the Pakhtuns and other ethnic groups who now speak Urdu because of having lost fluency in their first languages are now wrongly codified as Urdu-speaking. The current census only offers the choice of a first language spoken at home and does not have the choice of ethnicity. Ethnic demography will give more of a share to the Pakhtuns, Punjabis and other ethnic groups in the federal and provincial legislative assemblies and, thus, will serve as a check on the exclusivist MQM.

    Third, the re-demarcation of the Pakhtun and Urdu-speaking areas will also ensure a change in Karachi’s local government, which has been a long-standing desire of the PPP, ANP, Sindhi nationalists, JI, PTI and the PML-N. Also, until the re-demarcation of the city on the basis of the above method, the district government should be appointed by the federal government.

    Fourth, the Pakhtun-dominated areas in Karachi should be re-demarcated in a manner that will ensure a proportionate Pakhtun representation. Fifth, the district government of Karachi should not be handed over the control of the police until fair redrawing of the constituencies takes place.

    Finally, a review commission appointed by parliament should determine the share of other ethnic groups in Karachi and to oversee the removal of difficulties in getting domicile certificates and national identity cards in the city.

  266. They say dead men tell no tales. But they do, if justice is blind and applied equally. The judicial investigation of the May 12th killing in Karachi has opened a veritable Pandora’s Box in Pakistani politics and, as a result, the MQM chief has been summoned to the Sindh High Court. Feeling the heat, Altaf Hussain has decided to join altaf passportforces with Pervez Musharraf who has been plotting to launch a massive propaganda campaign against Nawaz Sharif. Ummat Daily News has learned through reliable sources that London-based leadership of MQM has been in close consultation with the ex-dictator during the last few days. The flurry of activity in London was prompted by the issuance of notices by the Sindh High Court to Pervez Musharraf and Altaf Hussain to appear before the court. The court has directed the duo to appear personally and clarify their role in the events of May 12th, 2007 and in the killings of lawyers and media activists during the Chief Justice’s visit to Karachi that day.

    A source close to the London secretariat of the MQM revealed that the original plan of action involved cooperation with the PPP to hash out a strategy that would save the MQM head honcho from appearing before the judge. The governing party, however, did not give an unconditional pledge of support and so in despair, the MQM made contact with Pervez Musharraf. The ex-dictator and onetime strongman of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf, has fled to the UK since the Chief Justice, whom he imprisoned for 5 months, was restored to the bench.

  267. The MQM sector and unit in-charges in London are greatly worried about the judicial proceedings and a large source of anxiety in the party leadership remains the possibility that any decision by the court against the MQM may make it difficult for Altaf to stay indefinitely in the UK. If the Sindh High Court finds the defendant Altaf Hussain guilty of orchestrating the horrific round of violence on that fateful day in Karachi, the party leadership fears his opponents may move the courts in the UK to expel Altaf, or at least, to limit his capacity for organized violence.

  268. What Altaf has been reported to be most afraid of, is the fact that if it becomes impossible for him to stay in the UK, the only other country that would grant him asylum would be India. Staying in the UK, however, is not only politically defensible for the MQM, it also allows Altaf to monitor his extensive business interests in Europe and North America. Claiming asylum in India would not only be political suicide for the MQM but would also pinch Altaf’s wallet most painfully. Understandably, Altaf is willing to go to any length to keep on staying in the UK.

    Insider sources claim the MQM chief originally planned to stage manage a public show of force in Karachi soon after Eid. The ostensible demands of the post-Eid tableau vivant were to be the release of MQM activists allegedly in custody since the 1992 Army operation. Supposedly, some sections of the PPP have agreed to look the other way as the street theater of MQM has been planned to finish with a spectacular display of firearms and wanton violence after a moving address by the leading performance artist Altaf Hussain. According to sources, it was Musharraf’s idea to prod MQM into making a massive public show of force after the Eid. Ironically, a similarly brilliant collaboration between Musharraf and Altaf resulted in the original bloodletting on May 12th, 2007.

    Musharraf has advised Altaf that a show of Awami Taqat after Eid, demanding an investigation of the 1992 army action, was the only way Altaf could wriggle out of the tightening noose around his neck that is the May 12th case.

  269. But the blinding speed with which politics in Pakistan is conducted has put paid to any plans to wait out the Ramadan slow season. Altaf has been forced to move the release date early. The situation seems so dire in London that the MQM even offered the Lawyers’ leadership a grand bargain in the spirit of “Nazriye-e-Zaroorat” involving payment of restitution to the families of the more than 50 killed that day. Adding one more to the series of ironies, some of these victims had already been claimed by the MQM as its own martyrs. Unsurprisingly, the Lawyer leadership rejected these overtures with the firm declaration that it would never broker a deal to save the MQM. The refusal was served with a side order of stern advice that MQM had better not try to influence the court proceedings, for if it did, its problems would swiftly multiply.
    In the official MQM doctrine of victimization, the most villainous Army Operation against the MQM was initiated in 1996 when the PPP was in power. Interestingly, the MQM is willing to absolve the PPP for its role in the 1996 operation, and is only interested in investigating the 1992 operation. Perhaps that is because the PPP currently happens to be in power and controls the federal purse strings?

  270. Lt. Gen (R) Naseer Akhtar is the person who delivered the opening salvo of the battle, and it would be fitting to explore his background briefly. The 1996 Army Operation was carried out under the direct supervision of Lt. General Naseer Akhtar who was posted as Corps Commander Karachi during the previous PPP government. It was under his supervision that the feared FIT was created as an elite counter-terrorism outfit for hunting down MQM terrorists. However, after retiring, Lt. General (R) Naseer Akhtar, fearing for his life, approached Altaf Hussain seeking clemency. He had some family in Karachi and some business interests which prompted frequent visits, and he did not want to die.

    The other shady character starring in the latest Altaf Hussain production is Brig. (R) Imtiaz of the Intelligence Bureau. Brig Imtiaz was involved in attempts to dislodge the 1988 PPP government through a No Confidence move in the parliament through buying MNA’s votes. The auction price for the 12 MQM legislators in the National Assembly was set at Rs. 100 million.

    Musharraf and Altaf have collaborated before, most notably on May 12th, 2007, but the fierce urgency of their respective legal troubles has forced the two in an intimate embrace, While Musharraf finds the noose of Article 6 rustling against his shirt collar very unsettling, Altaf fears the Sindh High Court more than he fears a good shower. Musharraf has even tried to use his influence on the renegade PML (Q), but has been unable so far to sway the party to come out in his favor publicly. The fast fragmenting Q has further splintered along pro- and anti-Musharraf lines and is expected to be of no help against Article 6.

  271. As MQM’s sphere of influence does not extend beyond Karachi and Hyderabad, it is in no position to stage a violent public uprising. It will however use the threat of holding Karachi hostage as a bargaining chip with the PPP and the establishment. The pro-Musharraf wing of the PPP is tuned to the MQM wavelength and is trying to bring the top leadership of PPP in line. They plan to use the threat of public disorder in Karachi to twist the PMLN arm and force them to back down from demanding Article 6 for Musharraf.

    In essence, Altaf Hussain plans a 3-target multiple strike through the grand opening of his show on the 1992 operation. He plans to deter PMLN from insisting on accountability for Musharraf, intimidate the newly restored judiciary and force the PPP to side with MQM using the threat of public disorder

    The situation is in flux and expect many updates. The PMLN and other opposition parties are watching the developments closely and have intensified their contacts with Prime Minister Gillani bypassing the Presidency.

  272. Did Musharraf and MQM’s Altaf Hussain Collude in Planning May 12 Karachi Massacre of Opposition and Chief Justice Supporters?

    British Intelligence Said to Have Tape of the Two Men’s Conversation; Musharraf told Altaf to “Teach Our Opponents a Lesson”

    By Dr. Waqar Kazmi
    Pakistan’s military ruler, General Pervez Musharraf, spoke on the telephone with the London-based leader of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) two days before the May 12 attacks on opposition activists and supporters of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry by the MQM in Karachi and asked Altaf Hussain to help “teach our opponents a lesson,” Pakistani intelligence sources have revealed.

    Musharraf’s collusion with the MQM supremo in the cold-blooded murder of at least 42 people, most of them non-Muhajirs, exacerbated resentment against Musharraf within Pakistan’s security establishment, which feels the general should not have resorted to using the ethnic card to thwart the wave of popular protests that has paralyzed Musharraf’s regime for almost three months. Musharraf, like Altaf Hussain, is a Muhajir though as an officer of the Pakistan army he is expected to think as a Pakistani and not in ethnic terms
    Officials within Pakistan’s security establishment informed this writer that British Intelligence might be in possession of a tape recording of the Musharraf-Altaf conversation, which could undermine both controversial figures. In the conversation, Musharraf and Altaf Hussain come across as ruthless manipulators with little regard for the life of Karachi’s citizens or for ethnic harmony among Pakistanis.

    Leaks from Pakistan’s security services have been instrumental in encouraging Pakistan Tehrik-e- Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former cricketer, Imran Khan, to announce that he and his lawyers would file a case against MQM Chief Altaf Hussain in London. Imran Khan called Altaf Hussain “Pakistan’s biggest terrorist and mastermind of the Karachi killings.”

    In his address to the Peshawar High Court Bar Association (PHCBA), Imran Khan said he would also discuss with British Prime Minister Tony Blair the issuance of British passport to “a Pakistani terrorist,” meaning Altaf Hussain
    The PTI chief demanded that the U.S. government stop supporting the “illegitimate government” in Islamabad. An open letter to U.S. Congressmen and British parliamentarians is also being written that accuses the MQM of attacking opposition parties’ workers who had gathered in Karachi on Saturday, 12 May 2007 to welcome the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

    Imran Khan has asked all opposition parties to form a joint front against the MQM, which he said could not become a political party unless it parts ways with “all terrorists, including Altaf Hussain and Ishratul ul Ebad” –Musharraf’s governor of Sindh province.

    Following the May 21 events in Karachi, the British media has already run a number of articles scrutinizing Altaf Hussain’s role as MQM’s “Godfather” and British authorities, too, are believed to have increased surveillance of the MQM leadership which secured political asylum in the U.K. during the 1990s.
    For his part, General Musharraf showed defiance in the face of criticism over the ongoing judicial crisis and shrugged off the criticism over MQM’s killings and anti-opposition violence in Karachi at a meeting of parliamentarians belonging to the King’s party, PML-Q and its coalition partners.

  273. How many of you have lived in Karachi in 1990s? All shops and businesses used to get a ‘parchi’ for donation to MQM. No negotiation. Even couple of months ago there was news item in which Rabita Committee had said the citizens should report those elements which are collecting bhatta in the name of MQM. Assuming for the moment (a ludicrous hypothecal scenario) that these forces were not from MQM but rather Talibans, why didn’t they say so? It is because nothing strikes more fear in a Karachiite than to be on the wrong side of MQM.

  274. The bodies that used to be found in gunny bags in Karachi in Korangi, Landhi, New Karachi, etc. Taliban just perfected and humanized the art of killing informants (by doing away with gunny bags and shooting the guy). MQM victims used to have torture marks on their body, nails pulled out, cigarrete burns, drill machine holes. The newspapers of 1990s were replete with the descriptions.

  275. The strike calls of MQM. Nobody dared to step outside for the fear of being shot. Buses were burnt the night before so that no buses ply on the road. How many businesses were ruined and how many shifted to Punjab?

  276. When MQM boycotted the elections? The wall chalking on the walls used to be “Vote do, maut lo”…this is a democratic party who is threatening death to anyone who is going out to vote. The wall chalking is still evident in certain old areas of Karachi.

  277. In 2005, I saw Edhi trucks taking away sacrificial skin in Karachi surrounded by Police convoy in Karachi. I asked an Edhi worker why do you need police protection within the city. He said, because MQM goonda loot our trucks.

  278. In late nineties, in Sagheer Centre, Federal B area and Hyderabad, it was reported in all the newspapers that MQM workers hoisted Indian flag on Independence Day. Again this was reported in the news.

  279. Altaf bhai stating in India that Pakistan was mistake of Quaid-e-Azam. Well, thats why the so called Mard Ka Bachcha lives in London.

  280. The Altaf Hussain ka salam to punjab k bhaiyon, video available on youtube, is such a joke on sensibilities of Karachiites. If that is not enough, watch the part where he says that “mein teen tak ginti ginoon ga, aap log khamosh ho jayega” makes for good slapstick comedy.

  281. People have left PML and made their own factions but still alive and free. Similarly with PPP, JUI, JI etc. But once you join MQM, you only leave it by getting killed. MQM(Haqeeqi) members are afraid to venture out in open in Karachi because they will be killed on sight. (does not mean that Haqeeqi are angels nevertheless they are offshoot of MQM)

  282. No other party has killed its own members as ruthlessly as MQM…Azeem Ahmed Tariq, Khalid Bin Waleed & many more…

  283. Who Is Behind Data Darbar Bombing in Pakistan?

    The recent Data Darbar bombing in Lahore and other similar tragic attacks have most likely been carried out by religious militants of various stripes operating openly in Pakistan. But the actual frontline attackers appear to be mere proxies acting on behalf of other, more powerful forces with much bigger axes to grind. The real identities and the agendas of these powerful forces financing and patronizing such heinous attacks are not well understood. The list of such patrons appears to be long and diverse, extending from self-serving Pakistani politicians to elements within Pakistani and/or foreign intelligence agencies. Each of them have their own agenda to exploit the internal divisions and the availability of remote-controlled human drones willing to commit such acts for their own reasons and motivations. I personally believe that India is at or near the top of the list of suspects in this unfolding tragedy. Here is why I have a strong suspicion that India is fishing in Pakistan’s troubled waters:

    In the wake of Mumbai attacks, there has been open public discussion in India about carrying out covert actions by Indian agents to destabilize and balkanize Pakistan. Several well-known security think tanks and influential analysts in India appear to have helped forge a consensus to carry out covert warfare in Pakistan by taking advantage of its current instability and multiple crises.

    There are strong indications that the Indian security and intelligence establishment has finally launched the covert war in Pakistan that they have been planning for about a year. The Indian officials have been seething since last year because of their inability to “punish” Pakistan following the Mumbai terrorist attacks that they blamed on Pakistan. They shelved the idea of lightning air strikes strategy dubbed “Cold Start” against Pakistan for fear of sparking a major war. But they have continued to talk about covert actions by Indian agents to destabilize and balkanize Pakistan. Former RAW chief B. Raman has argued that India appoint a covert ops specialist as the new head of RAW. He said last December that “at this critical time in the nation’s history, RAW has no covert action specialists at the top of its pyramid. Get a suitable officer from the IB or the Army. If necessary, make him the head of the organization.”

    Vikram Sood, another former top spy in India, has elaborated on Ind ia’s covert warfare options to target Pakistan in the following words: “Covert action can be of various kinds. One is the paramilitary option, which is what the Pakistanis have been using against us. It is meant to hurt, destabilize or retaliate. The second is the psychological war option, which is a very potent and unseen force. It is an all weather option and constitutes essentially changing perceptions of friends and foes alike. The media is a favorite instrument, provided it is not left to the bureaucrats because then we will end up with some clumsy and implausible propaganda effort. More than the electronic and print media, it is now the internet and YouTube that can be the next-generation weapons of psychological war. Terrorists use these liberally and so should those required to counter terrorism.”

    S.M. Mushrif, former Police Chief of Maharashtra and the author of “Who Killed Karkare?”, believes that the Indian Intelligence Bureau (IB) is up to its neck in conspiring with the extreme Hindutva groups against Indian Muslims and creating trouble between India and Pakistan, and now it is ominous to see one of the former IB leaders K.C. Verma heading RAW as of last year.

    The power establishment that really runs the affairs of India (Mushrif says it is not Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh or Rahul Gandhi) does not want to expose the rabidly anti-Muslim Hindutva terrorists.

    Verma was appointed last year as the new head of RAW, regarded as one of the top intelligence agencies along with Mossad, ISI, SVR, MI6, and the CIA. This choice appears to have been made at the suggestion of intelligence hawks like B. Raman to appoint an outsider, in spite of significant resistance from within the agency. Mr. Verma has been tasked with rapidly building strong covert ops capabilities within RAW. It is not a coincidence that the terrorist attacks in Pakistan have dramatically increased since Verma took the reins of RAW.

    I am basing my opinion on the track record (RAW’s extensive role in East Pakistan and Balochistan) and the strong desire (as expressed through multiple Op Eds and analyses carried by Indian media) of the Indian security establishment. It can also be seen in India’s so-called “think tanks” and “analysts” which are the product of a revolving door in Delhi, a cheap copy from Washington similar to the Hindi-ized Bollywood knockoffs of Hollywood blockbusters.

    Indians have demonstrated that they have the strong motives and the means to hurt Pakistan. They have established a powerful presence in Afghanistan along the border with Pakistan and deployed significant resources to carry out a very violent covert war inside Pakistan, and they appear to have now found the opportunity among the willing allies in the Pakistani Taliban faction in Mehsud tribe.

    Given the strong probability of Indian involvement in the current crisis, the Pakistani security and intelligence establishment can not rely on counterinsurgency operations alone to stop the civilian carnage on Pakistani streets. The counterinsurgency operations must be supplemented with serious efforts to cut off support and funding for the TTP and their allies in Punjab, and disrupt the Indian intelligence network operating out of Afghanistan. It will require superior intelligence and significant counter-intelligence operations, as well as an effective diplomatic offensive to put pressure on India to stop its covert war being waged on Pakistani soil.

  284. Altaf Hussain(MQM) Says Idea of Pakistan Was Dead at Its Inception

    Leader of the Sindh-based political party MQM, Mr Altaf Hussain stunned his audience at an international conference on Friday declaring that the “idea of Pakistan was dead at its inception. ”

    The NDTV quoted him as saying: “The division of the subcontinent was the biggest blunder…it was not the division of land, it was the division of blood. ”

    He wants India to open its doors to every Mohajir, the Muslim refugees who went to Pakistan after the partition. “I appeal to the politicians here to forgive the people who left and let them return, ” said Hussain.

    Talking about Pakistan, Hussain said: “The scenario is so depressing that leadership of the day openly admits that the country would fall apart if the army did not run its affairs. What does it tell you? To me it signifies a telling blow to the very idea of Pakistan, a homeland for the Muslims of the subcontinent, and the two-nation theory, which continues to wreck untold miseries on the people of this region for the past five decades.

    “Muslims are fighting and killing each other on the basis of tribal and linguistic affinity, sectarian strife is worse than ever before. Mosques and madrassas are but flourishing businesses. The less educated the Pesh Imam, the more popular and affluent he is likely to be. The advocates of Jihad, a medieval concept to tame the infidel, are wantonly killing followers of the faith as they visit places of worship.

    “Perhaps the idea of Pakistan was dead at its inception, when the majority of Muslims chose to stay back after partition, a truism reiterated in the creation of Bangladesh in 1971. If you need further evidence, look at the plight of 300,000 stranded Pakistanis in Bangladesh for three decades in their passage to the chosen land. Unwanted by both Bangladesh and Pakistan, led by an unknown destiny, ” he said.

    The NDTV report described Hussain as the clear star on the second and final day of the Hindustan Times Leadership Initiative conclave in Delhi. It said in an emotional speech lasting about an hour, Hussain spoke about human rights abuses against Mohajirs in Pakistan, betrayal by former prime ministers Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto and the need to find a peaceful solution to the issue of Kashmir.

    “The choice before us in Pakistan today is not Musharraf or democracy but between army and even more army, ” he said.

    NDTV said Hussain, who started life as a taxi driver in New York, has his own take on how to start afresh on Indo-Pak relations.

    “When you reach a dead end, your car cannot move ahead. What option do you have? Reverse the gear on the car and go back to where we started…when we were one country, ” said Hussain. Explaining why he was part of a military government, Altaf Hussain said his party was not comfortable with the political arrangement. “Why then, you may well ask, are we a part of the Government, which perpetuates army rule by undermining democracy and its institutions. We have paid a heavy price for pursuing our political objectives in a country where democracy is controlled. Given the circumstances which prevail, our desire to serve the helpless deprived and exploited peoples of Pakistan have indeed led us into political arrangements which we are neither comfortable in nor would deem desirable in better circumstances, ” he said.

  285. I am an eye witness of their bloody movement which they called a movment of the rights of Mohajir. he was a taxi driver in New York before he join back the MQM in 1991. Thy have no passion to bear the peoples power they wants to bring people under their control by force and whole urban area of sindh is look like a area like tamil tigers have captured in sri lanka.Urdu people are innocent they are not like this crazy and immoral man.

  286. History of Terrorism in Pakistan:General Janjua — the man behind 1992 operation

    The decision to launch the infamous 1992 operation clean-up in Sindh was largely taken by the military establishment immediately after the retirement of General Mirza Aslam Beg as the Army chief and the elevation of the then chief of general staff General Asif Nawaz Janjua to his place in August 1991.

    A careful scanning of the Pakistani newspaper files between 1989 and 1992 show that a proposal to send in the Army to ‘clean up’ Sindh was first floated in 1989 when Ghulam Ishaq Khan was the president of the country, Benazir Bhutto the prime minister, General Aslam Beg the Army chief and Lt-Gen Asif Nawaz the corps commander Karachi. However, difference of opinion arose after Ghulam Ishaq and General Aslam Beg opposed the suggestion.

    It was during his tenure as the corps commander Karachi that Asif Nawaz shot to prominence. Sindh at that time wilted under the most violent period in its history. Ethnic battles between Sindhis and Mohajirs were a routine affair and Asif Nawaz was often asked by the civil administration to deploy his troops to impose curfew and break the civil strife.

    On one such occasion, Lt-Gen Asif Nawaz had to personally come forward as a guarantor between two ethnic extremist groups to ensure a safe swapping of the hostages from both sides, who otherwise would have been killed. Therefore, he had floated a proposal to the PPP government in 1989 for carrying out two separate operations in urban and rural areas of Sindh against extremist elements in the Mohajir Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Al-Zulfiqar Organisation as well as against criminals and dacoits who had been enjoying the protection of influential political personalities and landlords. However, Beg reportedly voiced his opposition to the proposal and simply dragged his feet by demanding Herculean powers from the federal government for the Army under Section 245 of the Constitution.

    LAHORE: The decision to launch the infamous 1992 operation clean-up in Sindh was largely taken by the military establishment immediately after the retirement of General Mirza Aslam Beg as the Army chief and the elevation of the then chief of general staff General Asif Nawaz Janjua to his place in August 1991.

    General Janjua had been the corps commander Karachi for three years from April 1988 to March 1991 before being elevated as chief of general staff in April 1991 for a brief period, only to be made the 10th chief of army staff three months later on August 16, 1991. And the operation clean-up was launched shortly afterwards.Tw

    Even otherwise, there were elements in the Bhutto government who argued that a genuinely impartial military operation, cutting across party and ethnic lines, as envisioned by Asif Nawaz, would shake the foundations of the entire political edifice.

    However, the ground work preceding the military operation in Sindh was eventually started in August 1991 soon after Aslam Begís retirement and Asif Nawazís elevation by Ishaq Khan. After taking Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif into confidence, the military high command had issued directives to the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Military Intelligence (MI) to prepare secret reports on the activities of dacoits, criminals, terrorists as well as political elements patronising notorious elements in Sindh. A separate cell was formed within these agencies to focus on the activities of the Altaf-led MQM, but with precise directives that these reports should remain completely impartial and credible.

    However, problems began to crop up when Prime Minister Sharif was informed by the intelligence agencies that some provincial ministers allied to his Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI), President Ishaqís son-in-law Irfanullah Khan Marwat, several prominent Pirs of Sindh, then chief Minister of the province Jam Sadiq Ali and some key members of the PPP and the Altaf-led MQM were all involved in criminal activities. Subsequently, the leaderships of different political parties were informed of these intelligence reports and asked to purge their parties of such elements as early as possible. In response, the PPP high command publicly severed its links with Al-Zulfiqar while Altaf Hussain deemed it fit to expel Afaq Ahmed and Amir Khan from the MQM.

    However, Nawaz Sharif was advised by his close aides that so many politicians from Sindh have been named in the intelligence reports as criminals that if they were rounded up, the Jam Sadiq-led coalition government would simply collapse; the PPP would seize power in Sindh and the PML-led government in Islamabad would be plunged into a serious political crisis. Sharif was also warned that any action against criminal elements of the Altaf-led party by the Army could prove counter productive, despite the fact that intelligence reports had described the MQM as “a state within a state”.180px-asif

    Nonetheless, General Asif Nawaz Janjua was determined to move ahead with his plan of an operation clean-up in Sindh to cleanse the province of criminals. By that time, the infamous kidnapping and torture of Major Kaleemuddin by MQM henchmen had already taken place. In May 1992, a month before the operation was officially launched, the original plan was reviewed by the GHQ and it was decided that a direct clash between the Army and the MQM should be avoided.

    Therefore, the MQM-Haqiqi was launched. But the intelligence move backfired and severely damaged the credibility of the Army. During a high-level troika meeting hardly two weeks before the operation clean-up, General Asif told Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that although many MQM, PML, PPP and Pagaro League members were on the criminal list, the Armyís first and foremost target would be dacoits in interior Sindh.

    However, as soon as the operation was launched, Nawaz Sharif was taken by surprise as the Army opted to raid the Nine Zero headquarters of the MQM in Azizabad to arrest dozens of its activists and leaders who were wanted for their involvement in criminal and terrorist activities. By that time, while sensing the gravity of the situation, Altaf Hussain had already fled Karachi for London.

    As pressure mounted on Nawaz Sharif by the component parties of the IJI, he decided to give a clear cut message to the Army by travelling to London to meet Altaf Hussain on June 19, 1992 when the operation clean-up was at its peak in Karachi and Hyderabad.

    And his move explicitly meant to distance himself from the operation clean-up of the Pakistan Army that was being directed against one of his important coalition partners in Sindh – the Altaf-led MQM.

  287. Troubled Karachi held to ransom

    Consummated soon after September 11, 2001, the marriage of convenience between the United States and Pakistan in the “war on terror” helped turn Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf from a local commando into an international statesman.

    But being “a trusted US ally” has become synonymous with “playing with fire”, and Musharraf now faces a stark choice: risk setting the country’s tribal belt aflame, or watch the key commercial port city of Karachi burn.

    Starting at the beginning of this year, the US intensified efforts to root out foreign fighters and Afghan resistance figures sheltering in Pakistan’s semi-autonomous tribal areas, and with extensive surveillance, either on the ground or in the sky, even identified several “high-value targets”. The task of tracking down these people was handed over to the Pakistani security apparatus.

    In April, Islamabad dispatched thousands of troops to South Waziristan, one of the seven tribal agencies, but in the face of stiff resistance from the local population, Pakistan’s army bigwigs concluded that “they simply cannot fight” their own people. This was not the answer Washington wanted to hear, both in terms of the “war on terror” and with presidential elections approaching.

    An even tougher approach was needed to get Islamabad to do the necessary in the tribal regions.

    Target Karachi
    Fatima Jinnah Road in Karachi is a thoroughfare most motorists try to avoid as it houses the US Consulate’s residence, and all traffic is screened by the heavy security presence in the surrounds.

    Previously, any incident – and there have been several over the years – in the vicinity has been branded an attack on US interests. However, the twin bomb blasts that occurred just 100 meters from the consul’s residence last week in which a policeman was killed and 17 injured was not taken as a “serious threat” against the United States.

    “The target of two car bombs that exploded on Wednesday in Karachi was a privately run English-language school and not the nearby residence of the US consul general,” a State Department official said in Washington.

    Musharraf’s eyes and ears, the chiefs of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence, only too well understand the low-key US response, according to officials close to these organizations who spoke to Asia Times Online.

    They maintain that the bomb attacks were directed not at the US but at Musharraf himself, to serve as a warning that he needs to do something, and quickly, in the tribal areas, or there will be continued trouble in Karachi.

    According to Asia Times Online sources, US assistant secretary of state Christina Rocca, in a recent visit to Islamabad at which the director general of the ISI was present, expressed concern over possible trouble in Karachi if operations in the tribal areas did not go well.

    On Sunday, Pakistan warned of imposing some form of economic sanctions on the people of South Waziristan if they did not hand over foreign fighters, and more paramilitary troops were sent to the areas.

    On the same day, though, the high-profile Mufti Nizamuddin Shamzai was killed by gunmen in Karachi. As a radical Sunni cleric, he had repeatedly called for a holy war against the United States.

    This assassination was followed on Monday by a bomb attack on the Shi’ite Ali Raza Imam Bargah mosque during evening prayers that killed 22 people. The mosque was less than two kilometers from the seminary where Shamzai was killed. On May 7, a bomb killed 23 worshippers and wounded 125 at the Shi’ite Haideri Mosque in Karachi.

    Monday’s attack virtually shut down Karachi, with all port operations suspended, as well as the stock exchange. Thousands of security personnel were deployed to control the crowds, and when police fired warning shots at some mourners they were stoned. Shi’ite groups have announced a mourning period of three days, and people are still burning tires and stoning cars, while all the city’s markets have been shut.

    Shamzai’s murder had the potential really to set Karachi alight, but key religious figures acted quickly. All the top leadership of the Mutahidda Majlis-i-Amal (MMA), a grouping of six religious parties that controls the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) assembly (the province in which the tribal areas are located), traveled to Karachi for Shamzai’s funeral. Also present were the the leader of the opposition in the national parliament, Maulana Fazalur Rehman, NWFP Chief Minister Maulana Samiul Haq, and Pakistan’s grand mufti, Rafi Usmani. They all worked to pacify the thousands of mourners, who included the leaders and workers of numerous jihadi organizations.

    Sectarian smokescreen
    The bloodshed of the past few days in Karachi has widely been attributed to sectarian troubles. In one sense this is understandable, as the country, and the city, have had considerable such strife: more than 4,000 people are thought to have been killed as a result of Shi’ite-Sunni violence since the 1980s. About 97 percent of Pakistan’s population is Muslim. In Karachi, as well as in Pakistan as a whole, Sunnis make up about 70 percent of the population, while Shi’ites account for less than 20 percent.

    It should be noted, though, that after Monday’s attack on the Ali Raza Imam Bargah mosque, the leadership of Shi’ite Muslims pointedly refused to apportion blame to any Sunni Muslims.

    Speaking to this correspondent, a top leader of the Shi’ite community, Maulana Hasan Turabi, said the government had conveniently tried to label the attacks as suicide, even though no evidence of this had been found. He said the police do this as the attackers are said to have been killed and nobody needed to be arrested.

    Contacts in the intelligence agencies who spoke to Asia Times Online squarely rejected a sectarian angle. Instead, they pointed to the ethnocentric Muthahida Quami Movement (MQM), which is a part of the present federal and the Sindh provincial government in which Karachi is located. They also claimed that the Sindh police, who are under the thumb of the Adviser for Home Affairs (the MQM’s nominee), were culpable through negligence – at best – in not preventing the attack on Shamzai, even though they had information that it was likely.

    A comprehensive report has been sent to Islamabad, to which Musharraf reacted strongly and “vowed to take major decisions in Sindh province”, according to these contacts.

    Initially, it was decided to appoint the former governor of Sindh and minister of the interior, retired Lieutenant-General Moinuddin Haider, as a powerful adviser to the president on Sindh affairs, but after a strong reaction from the MQM’s leader in exile, Altaf Hussain, who strongly opposed any such unconstitutional action in Sindh and lambasted the army leadership, only a face-saving measure is to be taken under which the already weak chief minister is likely to change.

    Implications of Shamzai’s death
    On the one hand, Shamzai was the icon of the anti-US movement in Pakistan, an ideologue for all jihadi forces and a most respected name for the Taliban and al-Qaeda. More important, though, he was crucial to the establishment as he was never prepared to allow Pakistan to be destabilized, and he often used his influence to quell mobs and soothe passions when they ran too high for comfort.

    This dichotomy made Shamzai virtually indispensable to the establishment, but alienated him from hardliners, especially after Musharraf’s about-turn on the Taliban in 2001, which Pakistan had long supported, as Shamzai successfully defused anti-US protests at the time.

    Born in 1952 in Swat, NWFP, Shamzai came from a modest background. He studied in Jamia Farooqia, Karachi, and then taught there for 22 years. After that he joined the Binori Town Islamic Seminary, Karachi, where he was a teacher of the Hadith (the sayings of the Prophet Mohammed).

    He quickly earned a reputation for speaking his mind in difficult times. He was one of the first to support the Taliban movement when it emerged as a force in the early 1990s. He became famous when the US attacked Kandahar, Afghanistan, in 1998 with cruise missiles in retaliation for terror attacks linked to al-Qaeda in Africa. He immediately issued a religious ruling saying that any counterattack on US interests worldwide would be justified by Muslims. The same ruling was repeated after September 11 when the US announced its attack on Afghanistan. He also signed the first ruling to declare that Muslims who died while defending themselves in South Waziristan would become martyrs, while Pakistan soldiers who died while attacking Muslims there would be considered mercenaries and would meet “vicious deaths”.

    But beyond these convictions, Shamzai believed totally in the nation of Pakistan. When tribals blocked the Silk Route in NWFP to protest Pakistan’s support of the US attack on Afghanistan, on the request of the Pakistani government, Shamzai was taken to the site, and he quickly averted a bloody clash between pro-Taliban Pakistani tribals and Pakistani forces.

    Shamzai’s murder not only had the potential to create a law-and-order situation in Karachi. With his death a vital link with Taliban leader Mullah Omar and al-Qaeda is broken. At a time when the US is clearly aiming to build a “moderate” Taliban political force in Afghanistan, which would have broad acceptance in Pakistan’s seminaries, with Shamzai out of the picture, there is no one of such influence to oppose such a move, and Mullah Omar could be sidelined.

    The MQM connection
    The MQM was the dream of a few Marxian scholars such as Rais Amrohvi, Mohammed Taqi, John Ailia and Shahanshah Hussain to establish an organization that could protect the rights of immigrants who chose Pakistan over remaining in India when the sub-continent was partitioned from British India in 1947. The All Pakistan Mohajir Student Organization (APMSO) was the initial reality of the dream. It became established on campuses in Karachi, and allied itself with the left-wing Progressive Student Alliance. However, the Islami Jamiat-i-Talaba, which was ideologically allied with the Jamaat-i-Islami and which had been the main force on Karachi campuses, expelled the APMSO. As a result, its founder Altaf Hussain left his studies and went to the US, where he drove a taxi to earn a living.

    At this time in the 1980s, the honeymoon between the Jamaat-i-Islami and military ruler General Zia ul-Haq was over, and they developed differences on several national political issues. The sector commander of the ISI (now retired and still living in Karachi) persuaded Altaf Hussain to return to Karachi and take on the Jamaat-i-Islami. Altaf held big rallies and spoke against Punjabis and Pashtuns living in Karachi. In 1986, a bus driver who happened to be a Pashtun killed a college girl who was a member of a family that had migrated from India. The incident was immediately turned into a riot. The MQM was by now close to many bigwigs in the underworld – it still is – and they had several Pashtuns killed. Pashtuns retaliated in kind, and more.

    Altaf then initiated a drive to sell televisions and video recorders, the proceeds from which he used to purchase arms and ammunition. MQM activists now numbered thousands, and they roamed all over Karachi with AK-47 assault rifles and other sophisticated arms. Later years saw the MQM turn against Sindhis as well as Pashtuns and Punjabis. Killings and strikes were the order of the day for Karachi.

    In 1988, the MQM won national and provincial assembly elections, marking the all-out defeat to the Jamaat-i-Islami, knocking it from its only stronghold in the country.

    The MQM then joined hands with the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and became a partner in the Sindh and federal governments. However, this participation in government did nothing to curtail its gutter politics. In the early 1990s the MQM was a part of Nawaz Sharif’s coalition government when its vice president, Saleem Shehzad, now in exile in London, kidnapped an army major, stripped him and beat him like a dog. As a result, the first army operation was conducted against the MQM. However, Altaf fled to the United Kingdom before it began, and he now holds a British passport.

    A second operation was subsequently launched against the MQM, commanded by a former interior minister in the PPP government, retired Major-General Naseerullah Baber. This exposed extensive MQM torture cells and “no-go areas” in Karachi. Scores of MQM activists were killed in extrajudicial killings by the police.

    After Musharraf took over in 1999 in a coup, he helped resolve differences with the MQM, and now it is a partner in the Sindh provincial government, as well as in the federal government. Yet it often remains critical of the establishment, and has the ability to raise rabble on the streets or call for citywide strikes at the drop of a hat.

    Because of its declared secular nature, the US has traditionally been closer to the MQM than any other party in Pakistan. Over the years, thousands of its activists have been given asylum in the US, where the MQM has a powerful bureau.

    After September 11, the United States identified even more with the MQM as it was the only party in Pakistan that widely mourned the attacks on the US, openly condemned the Taliban and al-Qaeda, and launched a powerful campaign in support of the US attack on Afghanistan. Latterly, the MQM has been the only party to support the military’s intervention in the tribal areas. Visits by US diplomats to MQM offices in Karachi have – and continue to be – commonplace.

    Asia Times Online sources say that only US diplomatic intervention stopped Musharraf from taking strong action against the MQM after he received the report on the recent unrest in which the MQM was implicated. Washington indeed has a powerful southern ally in Pakistan.

    Musharraf is now carefully weighing the alternatives of taking tough action in the tribal areas, or risking more trouble in Karachi, the country’s commercial center.

  288. MQM and Qadiyanis in the Israeli Army

    By Dr Shahid Qureshi – Courtesy the London Post

    More Qadiyanis serve in the Israeli Armed Forces than Pakistan according to a book, Israel: A Profile, by a respected Jewish Professor, I.T Naomi. He stated: ‘… and the Ahmadi sect of some 600 people from Pakistan can also serve in the (Israeli) army…’ To many analysts, Qadiaynis are a political issue and have always been a security problem. In India, Qadiyanis have collected and donated thousands to the Indian Army fund after Kargil.

    On 15th February 1987, Pakistani Foreign Minister Sahibzada Yakub Khan declared in the National Assembly that there were 328 Qadiyani officers of different ranks in the Pakistan Armed Forces. According to his report 1, Lt. General, 5 Brigadiers in the army and 1 similar rank in the Air Force = 6, Colonial 10 Army, 2 Navy, 3 Air Force= 15, Lt. Colonials 56 Army, 6 Navy, 11 Air Force = 73, Major 135 Army, 5 Navy, 16 Air Force = 156, Captain 58 Army, 5 Navy, 14 Air Force = 77, Total 328.

    Now the question is after 20 years where are these officers? How far up have they gone? What is their current status in the armed forces and intelligence agencies? “Qadiyanis were created for political reasons and also to confuse the Muslims especially on the matter of ‘jihad”, said a senior analyst.

    ‘Give peace to the Ahmadis if you want peace in Karachi’, in 1995 a very senior Qadiyani leader said to me while sitting in one of his fully licensed restaurant at Wilmslow Road, Manchester. It was the time when Benazir Bhutto’s government was doing ‘operation clean up’ in Karachi under interior minister Naseerullah Babar.

    I had an invitation to attend a conference on Human Rights at the United Nations–in this context a close friend took me to see Mr. Altaf Hussain at his London offices in August 1995. They showed us some videos about the bad treatment to their workers in Karachi. In the context of ‘Jinnahpur conspiracy’ allegations, I suggested Mr Altaf Husain, ‘don’t say anything which you cannot take back like Mujeeb-ur- Rehman’s six points’. As liver damage caused by drinking alcohol and smoking of hashish are irreversible.

    Tariq Aziz reportedly Qadiyani relative of Rehman Malik and former president Musharaf’s National Security Advisor, has been hired for the ‘track two diplomacy with India’. His rank and salary would be equivalent to a federal minister. No wonder MQM and PPP are reportedly planning to move a motion in the parliament to undo the declaration of Qadiaynis as non Muslims by ZA Bhutto led Parliament on 7th September 1974.

    On 8th September 2008, Mr Altaf Hussain said, ‘a widespread conspiracy against the MQM of sending fax letters and emails to individuals and to Imam Bargahs and Mosques domestically and internationally inciting hatred and provocations against Shiite and Ahmadi sects to malign the image of the MQM and falsely portray it to be against Shiite and Ahmadi sects.”

    Altaf Hussain prayed for the forgiveness of Mirza Tahir Ahmad, a Qadiyani leader who died in London few of years ago. One wonders why Altaf did not attend his funeral? As a matter of courtesy one expects to say condolences provided the other side accept? Sir Zafrullah did not attend the funeral of Muhammad Ali Jinnah (father of the nation) conducted by a Sunni Muslim.

    Altaf Hussain prayed for the forgiveness of Qadiyani leader Mirza Tahir but have they accepted his condolences?

    Impact magazine wrote: ‘The National Assembly (in 1974) would go to remove a long standing but an unnecessary anomaly. The decision would serve only to formalise the defacto even de jure position. The problem had arisen not because the Muslims in some fit of orthodoxy or fanaticism wanted to ‘excommunicate’ any group of people. Its origin, on the other hand, lay in the assumption by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadiyan of Messiahship, and prophethood and as a consequence, branding those who did not believe in him to be outside the pale of his Islam.

    The Qadiyani view of their relationship with Muslims was well summarised by their second caliph, Mirza Mahmud Ahmad:

    “Our worship has been separated from the non Ahmadis, we are prohibited from giving our daughters (in marriage) to them and we have been stopped from offering prayers for their dead. What then left that we can do together? There are two kinds of ties: one religious the other mundane. The greatest expression of the religious bond is in common worship and in matters mundane, these are the ties of family and marriage. But then both are forbidden (haram) to us. If you say that we are permitted to take their daughter (in marriage), then I would reply that we are allowed to marry the daughters of Christians as well. If you say why do we Salam (salute) to non- Ahmadis, then the reply to this is that … the Prophet (Muhammad) has said Salam to the Jews… Thus the Promised Messiah (Mirza Ghulam Ahmad) has separated us, in all possible ways, from the others; and there is no kind of relationship which is particular to Muslims and we are not forbidden from (entering into) that”, (Kalimatul Fazsl’, by Mirza Mahmud Ahmad in Review of Religions).

    In 1935 that Sir Mohammad Iqbal, a poet philosopher asked the British Government to declare the Qadiyanis as separate community just as they done with the Sikhs. Sir Iqbal said, ‘the Qadiyanis while pursuing a policy of separation in religion and social matters’, however, anxious to remain politically with the fold. The Qadiyanis will never take initiative for separation’, argued Sir Iqbal because their small number (56,000) according to 1931 census would not entitle them ‘even to a single seat in any legislature. The Qadiyanis asked the British Government that, ‘our rights too should be recognised like those of Parsees and Christians reported (Al Fadhi 13th November 1946).

    “It was common knowledge that Jalaluddin Qamar, the Ahmedyah Missionary of Rabwah had been serving in Israel since 1956 when Ch. Muhammad Sharif was called back to Pakistan from Israel. All Qadiyani missionaries who had been formerly posted in Israel since 1928 namely J.D Shams, Allah Dita Jalundhari, Rashid Ahmed Chaughtai, Noor Ahmad and Ch. Sharif lived in Rabwah after serving in Israel. Their families had mysterious contact channels when they were in Israel”, wrote Bashir Ahmad in ‘Ahmadiyah Movement: British Jewish Connection.

    As far as Jewish help and support is concerned, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad, grandson of the Qadiyani prophet has himself acknowledged in his book ‘OUR FOREIGN MISSIONS’, PP. 79-80 in the following words: “The Ahmadiyya mission in Israel is situated in Haifa at Mount Karmal. We have a mosque there, a mission house, a library, a book depot and a school”.

    According to latest reports ‘Altaf Hussain is receiving instructions from foreign players including Indians and $ millions from the business community in Karachi’. He had many meetings with US diplomat Robin Raphael reportedly. Therefore when Altaf Hussain says, ‘LOC should be made permanent border’, he seemingly follows the Indo-US line on Kashmir. According to Milligazette.com, ‘US Intentions in Kashmir’ by M. Ahmad Kazmi:

    “The US policy-makers in the post-cold war era seem to be increasingly aggressive to implement the Dixon Plan in Kashmir for attaining ultimate target of having a foothold in the region and to use Kashmir as their main operations station. Before going into the US activities in the region it would be useful to understand the broad framework of the Dixon Plan. Named after its author Sir Owen Dixon, who was the UN representative for India and Pakistan in 1950, the plan envisages a division of Kashmir between India and Pakistan. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru favoured this plan, but it was a non-starter because Liyaqat Ali Khan, the then prime minister of Pakistan, rejected it. The US policy makers have resurrected this plan in recent years with some refinement. In the first phase, the idea of recognizing the Line of Control (LOC) as an international border is being mooted through different quarters”.

    A senior analyst said, ‘Altaf Hussain’s latest filtration with the Qadiyanis is not a coincident? So what is he up to? Start civil war in Karachi? Cripple the economy? If Altaf Hussain goes down that route then Government of Pakistan should ask for his extradition, closure of so called ‘international secretariat’, international investigation into MQM funds starting from London, Dubai, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Canada and United States. Otherwise it will not be possible to provide a safe route to NATO and allied forces 80% supplies and 40% fuel delivered in Afghanistan via Karachi port? United States and allies need to inform the world what are their real objectives in Afghanistan?’

  289. نائن زیرو کا سیکورٹی سسٹم بطور کمیشن نصب کرایا گیا

    متحدہ قومی موومنٹ کے مرکز نائن زیرو کے اطراف نصب خفیہ کیمروں کا نیٹ ورک سرکاری کھاتے سے نصب کرایا گیا ہے۔ یہ کام متحدہ قیادت نے سابق سٹی ناظم سید مصطفی کمال کے ذریعے کروایا تھا۔ ذرائع نے انکشاف کیا ہے کہ نائن زیرو کے اطراف 30 کے لگ بھگ خفیہ کیمروں پر مشتمل مانیٹرنگ سسٹم شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سسٹم سے مشابہت رکھتا ہے۔ ذرائع کے مطابق نائن زیرو کے سیکورٹی سسٹم کو چلانے والے بھی شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر کے ملازم ہیں اور اس کے ساتھ وہ متحدہ کے حلف یافتہ کارکن بھی ہیں۔ ذرائع نے بتایا کہ ملکی حساس ادارے اس سے قبل شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر کے حوالے سے اپنے تحفظات کا اظہار بھی کر چکے ہیں۔ حساس اداروں نے خدشہ ظاہر کیا تھا کہ اس سینٹر تک غیر متعلقہ لوگوں کی رسائی بھی ہو سکتی ہے کیونکہ یہ وائر لیس ٹیکنالوجی سے آرستہ ہے، جسے ایک مخصوص فریکوئنسی کے ذریعے کہیں بھی بیٹھ کر مانیٹر کیا جا سکتا ہے۔ قانون نافذ کرنے والے اداروں نے حکومت کو مشورہ دیا تھا کہ شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر کی کسی غیر جانبدار تکنیکی کمپنی سے مکمل جانچ پڑتال کرائی جائے اور یہ چیک کیا جائے کہ اس سسٹم تک کس کس کی دسترس ہے، تاہم سابق شہری حکومت نے اس ضمن میں کسی قسم کی معلومات متعلقہ اداروں یا حکومت کو فراہم نہیں کی تھیں۔ ذرائع نے مزید بتایا کہ سابق سٹی ناظم مصطفی کمال کے دور میں شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر کی تنصیب کا کام ایک مقامی کمپنی کے توسط سے غیر ملکی کمپنی کو دیا گیا تھا اور سنگل پارٹی ٹینڈر کے ذریعے یہ کام من پسند کمپنی کو اس شرط پر سونپا گیا تھا کہ وہ بطور کمیشن نائن زیرو کیلئے بھی ایسا ہی ایک منی سیٹ اپ قائم کر کے دے گی۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ سندھ پولیس سمیت دیگر قانون نافذ کرنے والے اداروں نے شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سے استفادہ نہ کرنے کا فیصلہ بھی اسی وجہ سے کیا تھا کہ انہیں خدشہ ہے کہ اس سینٹر تک غیر متعلقہ لوگوں کی دسترس ہو سکتی ہے۔ ذرائع کا دعویٰ ہے کہ متحدہ کے مرکز نائن زیرو پر خفیہ کیمروں کے ذریعے مانیٹرنگ کیلئے جو مشینری نصب کی گئی ہے ان آلات کے ذریعے شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر سے بھی منسلک ہوا جا سکتا ہے اور شہر میں نصب کیمروں کے ذریعے کسی کی بھی نقل و حرکت پر نظر رکھی جا سکتی ہے۔ واضح رہے کہ شہری حکومت کا کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر کل 50 سے 54 کلوز سرکٹ کیمروں پر مشتمل ہے جو تقریباً 36 مربع کلومیٹر کے حصے کو مانیٹر کر رہے ہیں، جن میں سگنل فری کوریڈور ون اور ٹو بھی شامل ہیں۔ ذرائع نے بتایا کہ شہری حکومت کے کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر کا کوئی ریکارڈ متعلقہ محکمے کے پاس موجود ہی نہیں ہے، اس کے لئے نہ تو کوئی بجٹ ظاہر کیا گیا اور نہ ہی اس کا کوئی پی سی ون منظر عام پر آ سکا۔ ذرائع کے مطابق مذکورہ پروجیکٹ سابقہ حکومت کی خصوصی فنڈنگ سے قائم کیا گیا تھا۔ اہم ذریعے کا کہنا ہے کہ جب کمانڈ اینڈ کنٹرول سینٹر قائم کیا جا رہا تھا تو اس وقت لندن قیادت کی جانب سے خصوصی ہدایت جاری کی گئی تھی کہ پشتون آبادیوں کے اطراف اس طرح کیمرے لگائے جائیں کہ ان کی بہتر مانیٹرنگ ہو سکے۔ ذریعے کا کہنا ہے کہ یہی وجہ ہے کہ سہراب گوٹھ اور بنارس پر ایسے کیمرے لگائے گئے جن کو 2 کلومیٹر تک زوم کیا جا سکتا ہے۔ یہ نائٹ ویژن کیمرے ہیں جن کی مانیٹرنگ کمانڈ سینٹر میں بیٹھ کر کی جاتی ہے۔ ان کی مخصوص فریکوئنسی کو سیٹ کرکے ملک کے کسی بھی حصے میں بیٹھ کر اسے دیکھا جا سکتا ہے۔ ذرائع کے مطابق نائن زیرو کے اطراف لگائے گئے کیمرے بھی نائٹ ویژن ہیں۔

  290. شہر میں اے این پی مخالف پختون گروپ کھڑا کرنے میں متحدہ ناکام

    متحدہ قومی موومنٹ کی قیادت کراچی میں اے این پی سے مقابلے کیلئے اس کے مخالف پختون گروپ کو متحد کرنے میں ناکام ہو گئی ہے۔ ہزارہ صوبہ تحریک، سابق پختون رہنمائوں، پختون طلبہ تنظیم کے مختلف دھڑوں اور اے این پی سندھ کی قیادت سے ناراض پختونوں سے کئے گئے رابطوں میں مالی سپورٹ کی یقین دہانی بھی کرائی گئی تھی۔ ہزارہ صوبہ تحریک کی حمایت میں کراچی میں متحدہ کے اکثریتی علاقوں میں چاکنگ بھی کرائی گئی۔ متحدہ نے اپنے زیر اثر علاقوں کے پختون تاجروں اور دکانداروں سے بھی رابطے کئے ہیں۔ رابطہ کمیٹی میں پختون رکن کا اضافہ بھی اسی سلسلے کی کڑی ہے۔ متحدہ کے ذرائع کا دعویٰ ہے کہ کراچی میں اے این پی مخالف دھڑے قائم کرنے کیلئے متحدہ کی کوششیں رائیگاں گئی ہیں۔ متحدہ کی قیادت نے رابطہ کمیٹی میں خیبر پختونخوا سے تعلق رکھنے والے فرد کو رکنیت دے کر اب نئی منصوبہ بندی کی ہے۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ گزشتہ 2 ماہ سے متحدہ کے بعض رہنما کراچی میں برسوں سے مقیم سیاسی طور پر غیر فعال پختونوں سے رابطہ کرکے انہیں ایک اے این پی مخالف دھڑا تشکیل دینے کے لئے راضی کرنے کی کوشش کررہے تھے۔ اس حوالے سے متحدہ کے2 اراکین صوبائی اسمبلی اور ایک رکن قومی اسمبلی متحدہ میں شامل بعض پختونوں کے ذریعے ان شخصیات سے رابطہ کر رہے تھے۔ متحدہ نے اے این پی سے ناراض کراچی کے کئی پختون رہنمائوں جن میں پختون اسٹوڈنٹ فیڈریشن سے تعلق رکھنے والے طلبہ بھی شامل تھے کو بھی اس بات پر راضی کرنے کی کوشش کی تھی کہ اے این پی سندھ کی قیادت کے خلاف ایک گروپ تشکیل دیا جائے۔ متحدہ پس پردہ رہ کر مکمل سپورٹ فراہم کرے گی، تاہم متحدہ کو اس حوالے سے کامیابی نہیں ملی۔ اسی طرح ہزارہ صوبہ تحریک کے کراچی میں موجود بعض فعال افراد کو بھی پیشکش کی گئی کہ وہ اے این پی کو چیلنج کریں تو متحدہ مکمل تعاون کرے گی۔ ذرائع کا کہنا ہے کہ متحدہ کو تاحال اس محاذ پر مایوسی کا سامنا ہے۔ متحدہ ذریعے کا کہنا ہے کہ اب نئی حکمت عملی کے تحت رابطہ کمیٹی میں ایک نئے پختون رکن کا اضافہ کیا گیا ہے اور انہیں یہ ٹاسک دیا گیا ہے کہ وہ کراچی میں رہنے والے اے این پی سے ناراض افراد کو متحدہ کے قریب لانے کے لئے کوشش کریں۔ تعاون کرنے والے پختونوں کو متحدہ صوبائی و شہری حکومت کی سطح پر ملازمتیں اور دیگر مراعات کی پیشکش کرے گی تاکہ یہ لوگ اے این پی کے خلاف متحرک ہو کر اس کا مقابلہ کر سکیں۔

  291. The city of nearly 18 million has been in the grip of ethnic tensions since the formation of the Mohajir Qaumi Movement, now called Muttahida Qaumi Movement, during the martial law regime of General Ziaul Haq.

    The military general was anxious to curb the political vote-bank of the Pakistan Peoples Party and the Inter Services Intelligence then propped up a mohajir nincompoop with no roots in Karachi who belonged to the lower middle class — the class that in history has been responsible for engendering fascism.

    The young man was Altaf Hussan, now 56.

    With I.S.I. support and direct patronage of Zia, Altaf Hussain overnight became a hero of the mohajir community. Over the years M.Q.M. has targeted almost all other ethnic communities : Pashtuns, Sindhis, Baluch.

    One mohajir businessman recalls a meeting of top industrialists and businessmen in 1986 in the Hill Park area in P.E.C.H.S. organized by the dictator that was attended by Altaf Hussain. General Ziaul Haq called the host at the meeting and requested the businessmen present there to donate generously to Hussain.

    More than one million dollars were amassed at the single event.

    Businessmen who refused to pay extortion monies to Altaf Hussain were allegedly killed on his orders, according to Pakistan reports. One victim was former governor of Sindh, Hakim Mohammed Saeed.

    Altaf Hussain is known for allegedly physically eliminating those in his party who differ with him.

  292. On May 1, 1993 Azeem Ahmed Tariq was assassinated, just a few days after he addressed a press conference where he made statements against Altaf. But it is still a mystery who was actually behind his killing. The three suspects who were arrested for the murder, were also killed after they were released on bail.

  293. The slain leader Azeem Ahmed Tariq’s family fled the country for their own safety. They are living in Houston, Texas, in the United States. Ii is interesting to note that the victim’s two sons Umair and Uzair have not forgotten the persons who were involved in the killing of their father and soon Altaf Hussain will have to answer very embarrassing questions and possibly murder litigation.

    There are web reports that Karachi mayor Mustafa Kamal played a role in the slaying of Tariq and a picture of Altaf Hussain kissing him, while both have their eyes closed, has led to eyebrow raising and all kinds of speculations about the MQM chief’s private life..

    Over the last quarter century, M.Q.M. showed its terrorist color in many conflicts with almost all ethnic groups.

    After prospering under Zia, the ethnic terrorist group flourished for another decade after General Pervez Musharraf became the army chief.

    On May 12, 2007 when Pakistan’s Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry arrived in Karachi during the struggle to restore the judges of the supreme court, at the behest of General Musharrraf, thugs of the M.Q.M. went on a killing orgy in Karachi that claimed dozens of innocent lives. The incidents on that day is well documented.

  294. All the evidence shows that these parties, particularly the MQM, acted like organised military forces, which mobilised large numbers of people to carry out acts of brutal violence against their opponents as well as non-partisan citizens. For this the level of responsibility needs to be more specific and direct than the one implied in the notion of collective political responsibility.”

    “The MQM, or at least its military organisation, bears the direct and specific responsibility for the majority of the violence. Residual responsibility lies with the armed supporters of other political and religious parties,” the HRCP report says.

  295. Many years ago, Altaf Hussain was imprisoned at the Karachi Central Jail where a Baluch student leader the late Deen Mohamed Boro was also present in the same cell. According to a Sindhi journalist who was in prison at the same time, Boro allegedly blackened Hussain’s face one night.

    Later, Hussain married and divorced a girl whose maternal grandmother was a daughter of a former mayor of Karachi, Khan Bahadur Allah Baksh Gabol, and a distant relative of this scribe. According to the ex-wife Faiza Malik Gabol, Altaf Hussain was extremely abusive and used to torture her.

  296. Through her law firm, Khan Solicitors, Faiza Gabol has filed a divorce suit citing that she wanted separation from her husband due to Altaf Hussain’s attitude that had been insulting and callous. She also alleged that after marriage she was virtually made a prisoner.

  297. The main reason Altaf Hussain married Gabol was that he needed a British passport.

    During the divorce procedings, Altaf Hussain tried to punish his father-in-law illegally.

  298. Faiza Gabol has filed a suit in a London court seeking divorce from the MQM chief. Faisal Gabol, who also once acted as adviser to the Sindh government, has alleged that due to the ongoing court case in London he was being threatened by MQM leaders and activists of dire consequences.

    He was removed as the Sindh government adviser and put behind bars on fake charges, it was alleged.

  299. The Baluch are warning Hussain that if his terrorist organization does not stop its brutal, anti-human activities, he will be fully exposed before the British government and take back his British passport. They said they will ask Faiza Gabol to help them in this regard.

  300. Our prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was from the noble tribe of Makkah and all the prophets were from noble tribe.It never happened that a famous and most pious and most incredible person came in bad reputation people or from any bad reputation family.Bad reputation means among those who did immoral activity in their daily life.Caste and creed does not mean any profession but it shows rather reflects the character of a person.If you take the example of our present minister of Interior Rehman Malik he is from Barber family (NAI) i am not Joking but let me tell you being in the nai family does not mean that he is from some filthy back ground or low cast but the things he does i mean the corruption he does shows the back ground of his family.Like take the example of So called Quaid E Tehreek Mr Altaf Hussain he is also from a low cast where adultery and any type of corruption is of no value, no culture no cast no creed do whatever you like and live your life the way you like nothing stops you from doing immoral and unethical things. In the beginning Altaf Hussain used to do wall chalking by himself even in Hyderabad where he used to live with Jawaid Kardar,Iqbal Ladla,Shakil Ahmed (Shakil is now working and living in Jouhar and running a cell phone shop at Jouhar chowrangi) and used to have fun with the nurses of Hyedrabad.Jawaid Kardar is the that person who painted most of the walls in Hyderabad and murdered the civil Judge of Hyderabad session court.Do you know the name of his Father i mean Altaf’s Father Name?Do you know where his Altaf’s Father is buried?Do you know where his mother and father used to live?Do you know Altaf’s cast or creed?Is there any park or place on his Altaf’s father name?Why Khursheed Begum Memorial Hall on his mothers name and nothing on his fathers name?What is the reason of never talking about father?Is it the matter of shame to talk about father?Why does Altaf feel shame on showing his fathers name?Is he ALTAF the legitimate child?Was her mother divorced?What was the relation of his father with Khanaywall?Is he Altaf is son of a person from Khanewall?Now take the example of MR Mustafa Kamal the nephew of Late Mr Tariq Azeem the founder member of MQM.It has been called by many founder member of MQM that Azeem ahmed Tariq was killed by the instruction of Altaf Husain and Saleem Shahzad was the one who executed the orders through 4 people and Mustafa Kamal was on top of the list who assisted Saleem Shahzad in killing his own uncle.Even it is said that Mustufa Kamal did open the door to Kill his Uncle Azeem Ahmed Tariq.At that time Mustafa Kamal was performing his duties at nine zero and the orders of killing of Azeem Ahmed Tariq was givine by Altaf Hussain in the Presence of Mr Imran Farooq, Saleem Shahzad and Altafs Main body Guard Khalid.

  302. “MQM and Blackwater/Xe are US sponsored mafia style mercenary outfits due to their management structure as it is almost the same both groups’ chiefs are out of Pakistan to start with. ”
    MQM and Blackwater/Xe are US sponsored mafia style mercenary outfits due to their management structure as it is almost the same both groups’ chiefs are out of Pakistan to start with.

    “There is no difference between Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and MQM because both are sponsored by India and USA. Sawat type operation against MQM’s “˜Clean Shaven Taliban’ who are supporting Blackwater/Xe is a must because people will support. President Zardari, the “˜Putin of Pakistan’ can he do anything of for Karachi or he has become a cuddly toy now?”

    The recent bombings of a religious procession in Karachi and fire bombings of small businesses miles away from the incident reportedly owned by mostly Sunni Tableghie Jamat a non violent religious group, got all the hall marks of “˜private mercenaries’ Blackwater with the support of MQM. According to reports it is physically not possible for any one attending the procession to go miles away, get special fire bombing chemicals and equipment to set fire 300 hundred shops in Bolton Market. It is only possible if one already knows the timing of the bombings and part of the plot. They targeted a Sunni areas where it is almost impossible for an angry “˜Shia protestor’ to reach from the crime scene keeping in the view the distances. So Shia procession was bombed, Sunni business were burnt down and MQM’s fire engines did not arrive. Seems perfect Blackwater Inc style operation?

    Blackwater, MQM’s Plus plan was meticulous and well timed. (a) Timing of the bombing few days before the end of the term of City Government Term. So City Government building burnt down with the record to cover-up corruption? (b) Selection of the venues to be fire bombed (c) Torching of Light House Market predominantly owned by the Pashtuns who did not pay extortion money to the MQM ” Score settled, Job done (d) Torching of Bolton Market mostly business are owned by peaceful Sunni Muslims Memon Community. They refused to be relocated outside the city because shops worth millions. High ups of the current regime allegedly President Zardari & Co had interest in the land to develop and build flats and plazas. (Job done) (e) Why MQM leaders both reportedly Shias Haider Abbas Rizvi and Faisal Sabzwari not in the Ashura procession? (f) Why police and rangers did not stop the arsonists and terrorists? (g) Who ordered them not to act? (h) Remote control bomb was planted in an ambulance which might be carrying a head too? (i) Who is Hasham Al-Zafar (central) and what is his role in the bombing and burning of Karachi? (j) What is his relationship with Saleem Shezad alleged master mind of the operation and why he only reports to Altaf Hussain?

    MQM and Blackwater/Xe are US sponsored mafia style mercenary outfits due to their management structure as it is almost the same both groups’ chiefs are out of Pakistan to start with. MQM are the local collaborators of Blackwater/Xe in Pakistan?

    According to sources similar kinds of chemicals and fire bombing equipments have been used in Iraq and Lebanon. Pakistan’s security agencies must look into the links between MQM lead City Government and Blackwater. What kind of assistance they are providing to the mercenaries. City mayor Syed Mustafa Kamal and Governor Sind Dr Ashrat Abad Khan recently visited sensitive institutions of the USA related to protection of US national interests aboard. Why would a mayor of a third world country visit US State Department? Did he inform Pakistani’s foreign ministry? He is on the grooming list. “To his credentials it was Mustafa Kamal who opened the door for the assassins came to kill his “˜uncle’ Azeem Ahmed Tariq, leader of the MQM, as it was an inside job. It sounds like nephew shopped his “˜uncle’ according to a source.

    Altaf Hussain’s MQM and his mafia have caused more economic and human losses to Pakistan by strikes and terrorist activities then three wars with India. After the incident on Monday December 28, 2009, three thousand shops were burnt; one thousand were burnt after looting which caused loss of Rs. 60 billion to Pakistani economy. Armed men stopped fire engines for over three hours according to reports. Why?

    Elements close to MQM were also allegedly involved in the terrorism, arson, and killings after tragic death of Benazir Bhutto on 27th December 2007. Many analysts believe that it was a dry run by the foreign sponsored elements to separate Karachi from the rest of the country. There is another dimension to the burring of some markets with small business. Some people from land mafia were making hostile offers to these old pre partition businesses.

    There are reports that MQM has issued thousands of arms licences to its workers and sympathisers in Karachi and some of the licences might have been issued from other provinces. Disarming of the terrorist groups including MQM in Karachi is necessary to avoid future blackmails.

    It is also reported that armed gunmen did not allow fire engines to leave the fire stations. All the fire engines and security cameras are under the control of City Government run by MQM whose leader Altaf Hussain controls this group in a mafia style. Within minutes he blamed “˜Taliban’ for the bombings. How did he know it was Taliban and not Indian RAW or Blackwater/Xe? Altaf Hussain deliberately tried to make this a sectarian issue in his live TV broadcast on a news channel, which matches the agenda of private mercenaries and India.

    Asia Times Online reported few years ago during Musharraf era, sources says that, “only US diplomatic intervention stopped General Musharraf from taking strong action against the MQM after he received the report on the recent unrest in which the MQM was implicated. Washington indeed has a powerful southern ally in Pakistan’. After September 11, the United States identified even more with the MQM as it was the only party in Pakistan that widely mourned the attacks on the US, openly condemned the Taliban and al-Qaeda, and launched a powerful campaign in support of the US attack on Afghanistan”.

    When President Zardari speak about “˜non state & political actors’, probably he also meant Altaf Hussain too? His long distance proactive and dramatic telephonic speeches are more or less what Lord Nelson said, “If you can’t baffle them with brilliance, dazzle them with bullshit!”. He is never been to Pakistan for more then 15 years but did travel to India on his British passport. Most of the members in mafia style “˜Rabita Committee’ are wanted by Pakistani authorities for heinous crimes. He hides behind this “˜kangaroo committee’.

    A political analyst said, “˜to get “˜poodle status’ in US administration Altaf Hussain exaggerates things beyond imagination. For example, he claimed his supporters in Karachi increased by 10 million in just two years because he claimed to have 20 million supporters in an interview with Edgware Times in November 1998. But in 2001 MQM claimed to have 30 million supporters when MQM send a fax to Reuters on 22 September 2001. “(MQM leader) Altaf Hussain has offered the unconditional support of over 30 million MQM supporters to the U.S. president and the international community,” its London-based international secretariat said in a statement faxed to Reuters on September 22, 2001″.

    According to sources, “˜Altaf group is planning and preparing for armed fight with other groups in Karachi. There might be a plan to divide Karachi on ethnic zones as Rehman Malik mentioned in Dera Ismail Khan? The alleged transfer of money from Karachi to London, Germany, Dubai, South Africa, Canada, and United States is alarming. There reports of increase in the arms sale in Karachi seem serious but what are the authorities doing?

    So what is Altaf Hussain up to that is a crucial question to political and security leadership to think about. His alleged close links with the Indian agency and also acting like a mercenary force getting orders from foreign masters. It is time for the government of Pakistan to approach its friends and allies to have a clear cut answers about the real Agenda in Pakistan? Crimes of Altaf Hussain and his party MQM are so heinous that he wouldn’t dare step in Karachi even the whole period of Musharraf and now Zardari rule?

    Until November 1998 Government of Pakistan was reportedly seeking extradition of Altaf Hussain who was said to be wanted in 50 murders and 150 cases of kidnapping and arson. He said in an interview with a newspaper in 1998, “It is my wish that they take me to trial in a British court then I will tell people nationally and internationally what has been happening in Pakistan.” It was Altaf Hussain and MQM who issued a memo to his workers saying,” if there was war between India and Pakistan, MQM workers will be remain neutral”. Why?

    MQM’s deputy chief organiser of district Thatta and his wife were arrested by the police for trafficking 120 kilos of A class drugs according to a press report on 16th May 2004. Mohamed Ibrahim and his wife Ayesha Soho who is also member of district government were coming from Bolan area of Baluchistan on Jeep number BC 1248 when they were stopped by Dadar Police who discovered 180 kilos of HASH worth millions of from the secret compartments of the jeep. Police has registered a case number 13/2004 report against deputy chief of MQM and his wife for drug trafficking. Area in charge SHO of the area Police confirmed that suspects have confessed they have been also involved in arms trafficking from Kabul and been to Afghanistan three times. Both were sent to Sibi Jail in Baluchistan.

    “MQM has been funded with the drug money apart from the extortion money taken from the top businessmen in the name of support” according to a report published by The Frontier Post on December 25, 1998. The report says, “”¦ What is more alarming is that the Narco dollars have been used for funding the (MQM), a responsible source in the provincial government said. He added that such funding was tantamount to fuelling terrorism.” Is the Narco-terror funding still on?

    By joining as local collaborator of Blackwater in Karachi MQM has provided the eyes and ears on the ground with smart guns. Even if US-India sponsored “˜Pakistani Taliban’ claim responsibility of Karachi Ashura bombings, the chemicals and smart guns used in burnings of the over 6000 small businesses and loss of Rs. 60 billion have all the hallmarks of Blackwater/Xe.

    “There is no difference between Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and MQM because both are sponsored by India and USA. Sawat type operation against MQM’s “˜Clean Shaven Taliban’ who are supporting Blackwater/Xe is a must because people will support. President Zardari, the “˜Putin of Pakistan’ can he do anything of for Karachi or he has become a cuddly toy now?”

  303. Remembering the past – 12th May 07 & MQM

    On 12th May 2007 with the help of press & electronic media, the real face of MQM was exposed. Some analysts say that PTI Chairman, Imran Khan’s unsuccessful efforts to try Altaf Hussain in British courts under cross-countries terrorism charges could have barely exposed him than the collective efforts of media, with courageous coverage, had brought in limelight the way Karachi based ethnic group, MQM operates & manhandles its political opponents.

    Upon the orders of an army dictator, with complete support from intelligence agencies -once MQM used to blame those for all evils- blocking the arrival of Chief Justice Ifthikhar Chaudhry at Karachi airport had resulted huge political damage for Altaf Hussain. To minimize the damage, MQM had crafted a video presentation to its supporters that other political groups were also involved in this heinous crime of killing innocents, which many reports say that, predominantly committed by hardcore MQM loyalists. Here is a detailed account of events presented by foreign press, stating the activities of MQM on 12th May 2007.

    Nicholas Schmidle, the author of Two Tumultuous Years in Pakistan, an upcoming book which will be released on 12th May 2009, in his Dispatch from Karachi writes his account of arrival on 11th May night published by Slate magazine on May 17th 2007:

    “I arrived in Karachi at 2 a.m. on Saturday. The MQM had blocked every possible exit and entry point to the airport using shipping containers, buses, and water tankers. There were no taxis. People were sleeping in the terminal, and babies screamed. Food and water supplies at the airport were already running low, 10 hours before the chief justice was expected to land. It seemed entirely possible that these people would be marooned at the airport for a day or two. Fearing that I would be stuck there, too, I shouldered my luggage and headed in the direction of the main road. On the way, a security guard warned me that there was gunfire and burning tires just outside the airport. Karachi is not a city that you walk around on a good day; the prospect of negotiating through an obstacle course of burning tires and armed MQM activists made it seem all the more absurd, but the longer I waited, the tighter the blockade would be. Fortunately, I met a mustachioed man in his 40s along the road who happened to be a police officer. He said he had a jeep, with an armed guard, waiting on the other side of two layers of MQM-arranged cordons. After a few minutes, we reached the jeep and began navigating through back alleys and roads still under construction—any path that the MQM might not yet have blocked. There were no vehicles on the streets other than the commandeered tankers and buses, most of which flew the MQM’s tricolor flag. The trip from the airport to the hotel where I was staying typically takes about 15 minutes. I finally checked in at 4:30 a.m.”

    “With the MQM in command of every intersection, roundabout, and flyover, any attempt by the opposition parties to greet the chief justice was destined for confrontation. Syed, the Pashtun politician, was trapped, along with a caravan of his party’s supporters, beneath a flyover on the main road leading to and from the airport. As gunfire broke out between ANP and MQM activists around 1 p.m., a well-aimed shot, taken from the overpass, smashed the windshield of a red Toyota Land Cruiser Prado with ANP plates, immediately killing a man sitting in the back seat. “They thought I was there,” Syed told me two days later. He showed me the bullet recovered from the back seat of the Prado, the same kind of bullet used in the Heckler Koch G3 assault rifle. While Kalashnikovs are common in Pakistani homes, the G3 is not. Shahi said the only people with access to such weapons are the army and intelligence agencies.”

    “On Sunday, I asked a police officer if he had received an official order not to intervene in Saturday’s street battles. His face bore a shameful expression, and he replied, “No comment.”

    “On Tuesday morning, I returned once again to the roundabout where rioters had clashed with the police all day on Sunday. There, I spoke with a pudgy, middle-aged journalist named Rafiq. He told me, “On May 12, the nexus between Musharraf and the MQM was fully exposed. On the other side are the lawyers, journalists, students, traders, Pashtuns, Baluchis, Punjabis, Sindhis, secular parties, religious parties, and nationalist parties. The battle lines are drawn. Who knows where it will end.”

    Graham Usher, a former Palestine correspondent for the Economist and the author of Dispatches from Palestine: the Rise and Fall of the Oslo Peace Process, in his article “Musharraf all alone” writes about MQM & the killing on 12th May 2007 published in Al Ahram weekly magazine, Cairo as follows:

    “The second image was of the “people’s power” lionised by Musharraf. In fact it was the gang violence of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), one of the few mass-based parties in Musharraf’s coalition government, whose base is Karachi.”

    “On 12 May, MQM gunmen torched buses, blockaded Karachi airport, fired on a TV station and sprayed gunfire on all and sundry not of their allegiance.”

    “Although secular in outlook, the muhajirs define themselves as a “nationality” and take a fascist view of all not of their kind, especially those native to Karachi and its Pashtun- dominated neighbourhoods. In 1980s and 1990s the MQM were involved in communal wars in Karachi that left thousands dead. Musharraf is a muhajir, and his clear identification with the MQM in Karachi “has exposed the huge fault-line of ethnicity that divides this country”, says analyst Shafqat Mahmoud. “This has huge ramifications because as the self-declared president of Pakistan and also as a never retiring chief of army staff [Musharraf] is supposed to be above any kind of parochial or political considerations.”

    A Toronto, Canada based TheStar writes under the article “Bloody riots engulf Karachi” with a reference from Associated Press:

    “An AP reporter saw MQM supporters calling for ammunition and firing from buildings, reportedly at opposition supporters…”

    Red24, a global security analysis magazine writes in its weekly editorial dated 16th May 2007, “Unrest in Karachi – The beginning of the end for Musharraf?”

    “… Pakistani security forces did little to intervene when MQM supporters clashed violently, repeatedly and inevitably with pro-Chaudhry anti-Musharraf protesters from the ARD and MMA.”

    “The MQM is an aggressive, largely Muhajir pressure group. It has a track record of battling competing ethnic groups, particularly Punjabis and Pashtuns, and was largely responsible for the wave of inter-ethnic rioting and violence that blighted Karachi in the 1980s and 1990s. The movement’s actions on the weekend, where it reportedly began rounding up and executing Pashtuns or Punjabis, will have re-awakened the city’s ethnic wounds – reprisal killings and further sectarian violence are now a very real possibility

  304. well done buddy

  305. first the industry of Karachi suffered due to lack of electricity and load shedding…now the business and trade is suffering due to arson and closures and violent clashes….I am sure whatever the reason today the city is closed because the Americans must be moving some nuclear material or heavy military stuff from the Karachi port….to Afghanistan….

  306. IS THEIR ANY ELEMENT OF HUMANITY EXIST IN MQM?
    AFTER THE MURDER OF HAIDER, MQM KILLED 100 PEOPLE AND INJURED 123 PEOPLES AND STILL CONTINUED…

    PAK GOVT IS ALSO VERY STUPID THAT THEY FAILED TO STOP SUCH PARTY THAT KILLED 100 PEOPLES IN REVENGE OF THEIR 2 PERSON.

    IF MQM IS REALLY A POLITICAL PARTY THEY MUST FOLLOW COURTS FOR THE JUSTIS BUT THEY ARE KILLERS AND 100 DIED PEOPLE ARE EVIDENCE.

    PAK ARMY SHOULD TAKE STEP AGAINST MQM AND STOP THEIR ALL ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION ASAP TO HAVE PEACE IN KARACHI AND CHIEF JUSTIS SHOULD TAKE SERIOUS LEGAL ACTION AGAINST ALTAF HUSSAIN (THE TERRORIST).

  307. Death toll surpasses MQM Altaf’s orchestrated 12th may massacre in which (48+4) people died, during current killing spree 60 lost their lives and nearly 160 injured and almost 5 dozen vehicles(mostly pathan owned) burnt to ashes. Apparently fresh orders have been passed down by absconding MQMized grand terrorist Altaf from London,as MQM’s unit terrorist seem to have gone berserk and are targetting Pathans and their livelihoods in Karachi.

    Zardari’s butler Rehman Malik is nowhere in sight. Tommorow Zardari Bhutto might plead with British terrorist Altaf to spare Karachi and stop this massacre. Instead of retarded butler we need a full time interior minister who can deal with this criminal gang and dismantle its unit and sector terrorist network.

  308. Nearly 100 people have been killed and 200+ have been injured so far,sadly the fact remains that 80% of those who lost their lives in this bloody mayhem were pathans who had no political
    affiliation whatsoever with any of the two political criminal gangs(MQM-ANP).

    95% of all the properties,tea hotels,carpet shops,cloth shops,tandoors,hardware and sanitaryware shops,cement and brick depots and public transport,trucks,rickshaws,taxis,mini buses,coaches,trailers,dumpers,vans etc burnt in arson attacks belonged to pathans. I feel sad and sorry to be classifying and segregating victims based on their ethnicity but tragically that’s what happening on the
    ground.If there is no ethnic strife and tension among karachiites and every one is living in peace and harmony then both these
    criminal mafai gangs(ANP-MQM) will be driven out of business. So basically creating ethnic tension serves their interest as it will
    keep their business afloat.

    MQM even attacked a JUP affiliated mosque in North Nazimabad,flammable chemical bomb was thrown on the worshippers during Isha namaz.
    A tea hotel and few shops were torched near Nazimabad printing press market,fire eventually spread and ended up engulfing the
    connected apartments as well(all of the muhajir owned). Same thing had happened on 9th april 2008 when MQMized unit terrorists while trying to teach a lesson to some lawyer by burning his office ended up locking and burning alive 8 men/women(all muhajirs) .

    Highly flammable chemical was used in all these arson attacks and now its being confirmed that same chemical(that was used on 9th april,ashura blast) is being used in the current bloody violent arson attacks as well.
    Draw your own conclusions..

  309. A small sample of news clippings highlighting violent and volatile situation in Karachi.(these are just updates from a few hour period,u can safely imagine what must have been happening here during 4 bloody days.)

  310. Pathans are mostly involved in petty jobs like Tandoor walas(Bread Maker),labourer,road digger,Mochis(Cobbler), Soup/Dry fruit/Corn/peanut seller on Pushcarts,Quetta tea hotel owners,Brick,sand,gravel,cement sellers, public transport owners,drivers,chowkidars(watchman). I don’t really see where the bone of contention lies,muhajirs simply are not interested in these types of jobs so i don’t find a rationale in killing and eliminating them,only conflict of interest that i see is on the issue of illegal encroahment of land.Even in that area MQM is the one winning the race,being in govt continously for nearly a decade now MQM have illegally encroached hundreds of acres all around Karachi and using its powers in city council have attempted to legalize them against the rules and have burnt files of these land scams several times. Even the interior ministry report compiled by 5 different law enforcement agencies concluded that MQM was responsible for target killings,killings of police officials and illegal encroahment of land all over karachi.

    Not sure what to make of your afghan muhajirs comment but currently these Pathans who had been displaced due to swat operation and now due to floods are the actual muhajirs,you and me didn’t migrated even once,even that good for nothing absconding terrorist Altaf didn’t migrated(from india,instead he fled and migrated to UK) . So MQM is basically killing and hunting down these ‘actual muhajirs’ and sending their dead bodies back to their province in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan(Most of the pathan tea hotel,tandoor,hardware store owners shot dead belong to chaman,quetta etc.)

    As for AQ Khan indeed he is pride of every pakistani, ex dictator didn’t treated him well otherwise before that he was very well placed and respected.Professional jeolousy among scientist is common phenomenon.Dr Hoodbhoy and Dr AQ Khan don’t get along well with each other,same is the case of Dr Samar and Dr AQ,professional jelousy can a good thing as long as it makes them more productive,trying to outdo each other and engaging in a positive competion.. giving it all a ethnic color is highly offending and distasteful.

  318. Saying of Quran that when we bring Azab at times we make sure that people kill each other for honour and by killing each other one party says to other that we are doing it for good and so is said by the other party. We made Pakistan for Mohajir, Punjabi, Balouchi, Sindhi, Pathans, bangalis and for the muslims who want to migarate and wants to live under Islam banner, afsoos aur sadh afsoos that we kill each other and laugh over it and feels that we are doing good by this killing, May Allah cleans our heart and we can live in peace with each other. Aik Pakistani

  319. No one is superior among us as Mohajir, Punjabi, Sindi, Baluchi, Pathaan, we are only superior on each other if we are more parhaz gar and mutaki and remember brother in grave nobody will ask us that if Mohajir is bad, or how many Mohajir you killed or how many punjabi, sindi,Baluchi or pathaan killed, Angles will ask that you you offer namaz, did good deeds which will clean your sins and give release from grave punishment as well well for will clean you on the day of judgment. So please cease fire, Mohajirs are as good as Punjabis and so is like Sindi, Baluchi and Pathans. We must say IS PERCHAM KAY SAAY TALAY HUM AIK HAIN AND THE HUM ARE (Punjabi, Sindi, Mohajir, Pathan and Baluchi). Pakistan Zindabad. Aik Pakistani

  320. http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-11-107858-Small-provinces

    Recently NA passes resolution in favor of south Punjab province.

    We Pakistani Americans applaud this resolution. This is an essential to create more provinces for the stability and prosperity of the country and region. This will help administration to solve the issues and communicate to the people more often and effectively.

    Almost all members of national assemble and provisional assemblies from rural areas live in the cities. They are not available in their region when people need them. Last year flood storm is an example.

    http://blogs.tribune.com.pk/story/7778/dr-zulfiqar-mirza-it-is-time-to-go-home-now/

    When we have small provinces, it will force people to stay in their constituency. It will be easier for the people to approach their representatives. It will help representative to solve some problems.

    Look at Japan, South Korea, UAE, Malaysia, Indonesia, Europe etc.

    They are smaller size than Pakistan but they have more provinces than Pakistan.

    Japan 47 provinces

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_provinces_of_Japan

    Malaysia 16 provinces

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/States_and_federal_territories_of_Malaysia

    Indonesia 33 provinces

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces_of_Indonesia

    South Korea 9 provinces

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces_of_Korea

    England 9 regions (The highest level subdivisions of England called regions)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_of_England

    Each country in Europe smaller than our one province in size but their economics, education and living standards are far better than us. Their framework is strong, their current division of states/provinces base on administration not on l ethical boundaries. Ethical boundaries create the country.

    UK is a small country than us; the part of England that they divide on administrative basis has no problems. But division of Scotland and Ireland is based on Ethical boundaries. They are facing threats for separate country. It is similar to Baluchistan in a modern way.

    USA is a huge country. But they did not divide their states on languages.

    They divided into 52 states; inside states they have county, cities. Inside county there are tons of cities. Everyone is independent. Every city could have different rules and school programs depend on their voters needs.

    But unfortunately in Pakistan our current division of provinces is based on ethical boundaries.

    We are Punjabi from Punjab,

    We are Pathan from P
