The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has strongly condemned the killing of several people in an incident of firing by armed terrorists in Mirpurkhas. He expressed his deep sympathies to the bereaved families who lost their loved-ones. He prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.
Mr Hussain said the terrorists wanted to inflame the fire of sectarian strife by carrying out such incidents in the month of Moharram.
He said that sectarian killing had started all of a sudden in Mirpurkhas, Karachi and other cities of Sindh under a planned conspiracy which was a cause of strong concern for the public.
Mr Hussain demanded of President Mamnoon Hussain, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to take stern notice of the firing incident in Mirpurkhas. He said that the terrorists involved in this incident should be brought to justice.
