25 October, 2013
LONDON: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain claimed that some innocent people are also being picked up along with criminals in the ongoing targeted operation in Karachi.
In a statement issued here on Thursday, he asked the innocent people who had been arrested to exercise patience and added that they would be released if they are innocent.He said that five MQM workers were missing for several months, which is creating hatred and hostility amongst people. He said that the fate of Karachi would be similar to Balochistan if such conditions prevail.
Later addressing members of the PFUJ at the Lal Qila ground on Thursday night, Altaf said that Karachi is the financial hub of the country, and its peace is very important.
Altaf said that Karachi is the heart of Pakistan and if it stops beating, the whole country would be destroyed. He said the operation in Karachi is important but should not be made controversial. He added that he has directed his party workers to be patient and refrain from any activities which may affect the operation.
