The Central Co-ordination Committee (Rabita Committee) of the MQM has termed all such reports as baseless and fabricated that claim that there are differences between Senator Mustafa Kamal and the MQM.
In a press statement, the Central Co-ordination Committee said that the fact of the matter is that Syed Mustafa Kamal has moved abroad purely due to some personal and domestic reasons. Prior to leaving the country, the statement added, Senator Mustafa Kamal had formally informed the MQM’s leadership.
The statement further said that citing personal and family reasons, Syed Mustafa Kamal submitted his resignation from Senate seat to the party leadership in the first week of November. The party, however, has not made any decision on the matter so far.
Acknowledging tremendous services rendered by Syed Mustafa Kamal as City Nazim of Karachi, the statement said “everyone appreciates his great work. MQM recognizes and appreciates his work too and pays him great tributes.“
“After the end of his term of office as the City Nazim in 2009, Syed Mustafa Kamal had sought leave from the party's political activities because of some personal business. The party gladly granted the request back then as well,“ explained the statement of Co-ordination Committee.
The statement concluded that the party's founder and leader Mr. Altaf Hussain, Rabta Committee and all members of the party wish Syed Mustafa Kamal all the best and pray to Almighty for the positive resolution of his personal problems so that he may be able to resume his political activities from the party's platform and serve the nation.
