MQM leader Mr Altaf Hussain has strongly condemned the brutal killing of noted leader and General Secretary of JUI (F) Sindh Dr Khalid Soomro. He extended his heartfelt sympathies to JUI (F) head Maulana Fazlur Rehman and all other leaders and supporters on the tragic incident.In a statement Mr Hussain said, “Dr Soomro was an active leader of JUI (F). He had gone to Sukkur for attending a peace conference where terrorists gunned him down today morning.”
Soon after hearing the news Mr Hussain contacted Maulana Fazlur Rehman. Talking to his secretary Maulana Abrar he said that the incident was a big tragedy.
He said, “Sindh is virtually under the control of terrorists and no one is safe in the province. Political and religious leaders and innocent people are being ruthlessly killed and the government is sitting idly doing nothing.”
Mr Hussain demanded the Sindh Government to bring the killers of Dr Soomro to justice. “If the government lacks the power and capability to arrest brutal killers carrying out bloodshed of leaders and political workers, it should tender resignation.”
Mr Hussain prayed Allah to bless the soul of Dr Soomro and give patience to the bereaved family members.
