Altaf slams decision to end Quetta sit-in

Dated: 2013-02-21

KARACHI: Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain criticizing the decision to end Quetta’s protesting sit-in despite that the demands were not fulfilled, says the bereaved families have been disappointed with this step.

Addressing the MQM’s Rabta Committee simultaneously in Karachi and London, he said the ‘one-sided’ move to end the sit-in is tantamount to hurt the Shia faith, adding some elements were doing politics over the bodies of Quetta blast victims.

Altaf noted the parliamentary committee sent to Quetta by the government to resolve the issues, was an affront to the bereaved families of Quetta carnage that left 90 people dead on Saturday.

He posed a question to the army and chiefs of intelligence agencies as to when will the bloodshed of innocent of youths, children, elders and women come to an end; as millions of rupees are spent on the law-enforcement agencies.

On this occasion, he urged upon all schools of thoughts to stand united instead of causing more rifts amongst themselves
