KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Sunday held a massive rally in Karachi to show solidarity with party chief Altaf Hussain during which MQM leaders said that it was unjust that Mr Hussain's accounts were frozen despite of his cooperation in the money laundering and other matters in Britain, DawnNews reported.

Senior Leader of the party, Farooq Sattar, delivering his speech in English near Tibet Centre in Karachi, requested British Prime Minister David Cameron to take notice of what he called were unlawful and blatant violations of human rights against MQM chief Altaf Hussain and his colleagues in London

He also questioned as to why had the accounts been seized without any proof, trial or charge being framed against Mr Hussain.

Sattar further said that Altaf Hussain was being harassed by the British administration and warned of moving British courts and holding protests at 10 Downing Street against the behavior of British government.

Members of National Assembly, Sindh's provincial assembly and Senators belonging to the MQM and the party's office bears addressed the rally which was attended by a large number of activists and supporters.

The attendees also included a number of women and children.

Speaking on the occasion, MQM Deputy Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that the British government should answer the question raised by Farooq Sattar.

He said that Altaf Hussain was victimised for speaking truth but said that he would not stop telling truth to the people and continue to do this.

MQM leader Haider Abbas Rizvi demanded of the government to stop extra-judicial killings of MQM activists and said that one more activist was extra-judicially killed on Sunday.

He demanded immediate release of the missing activists and said that the party was playing a crucial role in stabilizing the country.

Nabil Gabol, another leader belonging to the MQM, alleged that people of Karachi were victimised for supporting MQM leader Altaf Hussain.

He said that major development projects were launched in Punjab while Karachiites have to face 14-hour load-shedding and water shortage,

Gabol added that government should initiate metro bus service and projects to overcome water crisis in the city.

He said that majority of the taxes were collected from Karachi and if these facilities would not be given to the city then they would be forced to stop paying taxes to the government which would create problems for the authorities in Islamabad.
