The MQM was urged to review the decision because of the worsening economic situation of Karachi
Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) has taken back the decision of the indefinite strike in Karachi on the appeal of members of the business community, industrialists, shopkeepers, transporters, associations of schools and people hailing from different others spheres of life. The decision was announced in a hurriedly-called press conference at Khursheed Begum Secretariat.
The MQM was appealed to review its decision because of the worsening economic situation of Karachi.
Addressing the press conference at Nine Zero, member of the Co-ordination Committee Raza Haroon said that even though the decision regarding the indefinite strike was being taken back on the appeal of the public, yet the MQM would continue to protest in assemblies and at all other levels unless the terrorists involved in the Abbas Town tragedy were arrested. The next programme for the protest would be announced in a day or two.
Mr Haroon assured the affected families of Abbas Town that the MQM would not rest content until they got justice and it would not leave them alone under any condition.
Mr Haroon also thanked the business community, industrialists and transporters for closing down their business on the appeal of the MQM.
