Meeting of the Co-ordination Committee in Pakistan and London and the Core Committee of the MQM
A meeting of the Co-ordination Committee of the MQM in Pakistan and London and the Core Committee was held on Friday in order to discuss important issues. The meeting started in the evening and continued until late in the night. After the meeting, a meeting of the Core Committee was held in the light of the points agreed in the earlier meeting.
It was noted in the meeting that Mr Altaf Hussain, the founder and leader of the MQM, did his best to find solutions of issues and to allow the democratic process to continue after careful deliberations on important issues and by showing patience and restraint. Interior Minister Rehman Malik played an active and positive in the dialogues held in the past five years for which the Co-ordination Committee is highly thankful to him.
The Co-ordination Committee said it is necessary to mention here certain elements actuated by their prejudice adopted provocative attitude during the dialogues in order to break the alliance between the PPP and the MQM. The MQM side, nevertheless, adopted soft attitude and showed patience in order not to compound existing problems.
When these prejudiced and chauvinistic members of the PPP did not change their attitude in meeting, the members of the Core Committee informed the MQM Co-ordination Committee and Mr Hussain about the coldness of the PPP members and the uselessness of the dialogues. These meetings were nothing but sheer waste of time as they did not produce any result.
It has been unanimously decided by the Co-ordination Committee and the Core Committee Mr Hussain would not participate in any formal meeting with any PPP leader or any committee unless the members of both the committees arrive at a final decision on longstanding issues that relate to general public welfare.
