MQM condemns brutal killing of MQM office bearer by Haqiqi terrorists in Korangi

Aftab was killed when he refused to join Haqiqi terrorists

MQM demands PM, COAS to take serious notice of the killing

The Central Coordination Committee (RC) of MQM has vehemently condemned brutal killing of Aftab Hussain, 30, an office-bearer of MQM Korangi Sector. In a statement, the MQM RC said that Aftab Hussain had been receiving threats from the Establishment-sponsored Haqiqi terrorists to join them or face consequences. Despite persistent threats, Aftab Hussain refused to join Haqiqi terrorists.

The RC said that Aftab Hussain was once again approached by Haqiqi terrorists Thursday evening while he was standing near his house. Haqiqi terrorists threatened him to join them and shot him several times at point blank range upon his refusal.  Aftab received multiple gun shots on his face and skull and succumbed to his injuries on the spot.

MQM Central Coordination Committee said that MQM workers are being targeted by state-sponsored terrorists throughout Karachi. Hundreds of workers have been killed since the start of the on-going operation in Karachi but not a single perpetrator involved in these killings has been apprehended. Instead, Rangers have been arresting innocent MQM workers without any justification.

The MQM RC said that despite lofty claims by the government and Rangers, incidents of target killing, including killing of MQM workers, have increased manifold. This poses serious questions over the direction and claim over success of the operation in Karachi.  

The MQM RC wondered if the claims of government and law enforcement agencies are true about the success of the on-going operation, then how come these incidents of killings are occurring in Karachi. It added that it is a folly to expect peace in the city when Haqiqi terrorists are being afforded state patronage to carry out terrorist activities.

Should this indifference of government and practice of providing official patronage to Haqiqi terrorists continued, MQM RC warned, then people of Sindh would have no other option but to resort to politics of agitation.

The Central Coordination Committee of MQM demanded Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff to take serious notice of killing of Aftab Hussain at the hands of Haqiqi terrorists and ensure that official patronage of these terrorists is stopped forthwith.
