Update-1: London time 10.15am
The MQM Central Coordination Committee has strongly condemned the miscreant elements who are involved in closing down businesses and aerial firing in some areas of Karachi and Hyderabad. It seems that some elements want to deteriorate the situation deliberately so that MQM can be blamed. The Coordination Committee clearly stated that such elements have no connection with the MQM. It must be noted that yesterday the MQM Coordination Committee has appealed to the businessman, transporters, shop owners, industrialists and traders to open their businesses as usual. The MQM again appeals to the people to remain peaceful.
