PTI demand investigation on allegations by Mustafa Kamal
05 March, 2016
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) demanded on Friday the formation of a judicial commission to investigate the allegations leveled by former MQM senator and Karachi nazim, Mustafa Kamal, against the top leadership of his party that “over the years, it has acted hand in glove with the Indian RAW in anti-state activities.”
Chief spokesperson of the party, Naeemul Haq, in a press statement said that the nature of charges in which Mr Kamal had by name accused former interior minister of the PPP government and incumbent senator, Rehman Malik, and MQM chief Altaf Hussain, was too serious to be ignored and must be investigated at the highest forum. “How can one ignore the claims made by one of MQM’s very own,” he said.
At a press conference on Thursday, Mr Kamal and former MQM deputy convener, Anis Kaimkhani, made startling revelations that the two had personally witnessed how the party leadership was involved with RAW and how Mr Malik, being the interior minister, was also privy to all this.
“For around three decades, we have been hearing similar allegations against the MQM leadership. Now the time has come to put the true facts before the general masses without any give and take,” Mr Haq said in the statement.
The PTI information secretary stressed that the assertions made by Mr Kamal shouldn’t be ignored and a judicial commission was the best option to put the controversy to an end.
