Brutal assassination of Arif Wazir worst of state terrorism: Altaf Hussain

LONDON. MAY 2, 2020: Muttahida Quami Movement's (MQM) founder and leader Altaf Hussain has expressed deep sorrow and grief over the martyrdom of Arif Wazir, first cousin of Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leader and member National Assembly (MNA) from federally administered tribal area (FATA), Ali Wazir in an armed attack and strongly condemned the assassination.
He said that according to newspaper reports, Wazir, a leader of the PTM, was attacked in Wana in North Waziristan, on Friday and was severely wounded and later he succumbed to his lethal injuries.
The MQM Chief Hussain said that the cold blooded assassination of Wazir was the worst of state terrorism and a cowardly act which deserved condemnation in all aspects and terms.
He said that he was personally shocked by the sad news of the martyrdom of Wazir and he could gauge the grief and shock of the oppressed Pashtuns with his assassination.
Hussain said that on the one hand, the Punjabi military establishment of Pakistan was targeting the oppressed Pashtuns, Balouchs, Sindhis and Mohajirs with state terrorism, seizing their legitimate rights and resources while on the other hand, raising voice against state atrocities and demanding rights are silenced to deaths.
They are not only being forcibly disappeared, extrajudicially killed, arrested and implicated in false cases, but are also being targeted and killed in ambush, he deplored.
The MQM Chief demanded that adequate notice be taken of the brutal murder of Wazir.  Assassins and their patrons should be exposed to the public and state atrocities against oppressed nationalities should be stopped.
He expressed his  condolences and sympathy to the bereaved family of slain Wazir, and said that in this hour of grief, he and all MQM workers share their grief equally.
