KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Sunday announced to hold peaceful protests across the country and abroad over PTI leader Imran Khan’s leveling of ‘hasty and outrageous’ allegations against Altaf Hussain for Zahra Shahid Hussain’s cold blooded murder last night.


MQM Coordination Committee, Dr Farooq Sattar made the announcement while addressing a press conference here at MQM Headquarters.


He said Imran Khan did not even wait for the findings of initial investigation to come out and made the accusation against Altaf Hussain minutes after the tragic incident of PTI’s Senior Vice President Sindh, Zahra Shahid Hussain’s killing on Saturday night.


Dr Sattar said the hasty accusation from the PTI Chairman against Altaf Hussain has hurt the sentiments of ‘millions of’ MQM Chief’s supporters and admirers in Pakistan and all over the world.


Commenting on the re-run on 43 polling stations of NA-250 constituency, Dr Farooq Sattar said MQM’s call for boycott was responded well by the people, because, according to him, the voter turnout was not more than 10 to 15 percent.


However, talking to Geo’s senior anchor Kamran Khan in ‘Aaj Kamran Khan Kay Saath’ the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf candidate from NA-250 Dr Arif Alvi said the voter turnout was good despite the last night’s killing of Zahra Shahid and the ensuing firing by the terrorists in the area to scare the voters.


It is pertinent to mention here that MQM, Pakistan People’s Party and Majlis-e-Wahdatul Muslimeen have boycotted the reelection on 43 polling stations of NA-250 while Jamat-e-Islami had announced its boycott across the city hours after the May 11 general elections had gone underway.
