KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders issued strong reactions to the Sindh Rangers’ statements regarding the involvement of political parties in funding terror activities in the province.
Via a telephonic address to his workers on Thursday, MQM supremo Altaf Hussain said that the allegations regarding hides of sacrificial animals and Zakat by Sindh Rangers were “baseless and unfortunate”, according to a press release on the party’s website.
The Rangers DG briefing to the apex committee had also referred to the “millions of rupees” collected in the name of Zakat and Fitra forcibly every year.
Hussain said that he had been working to gather proof against the most corrupt people of the country and their sources of income.
He said that the money collected through Zakat and hides by his party was used for serving humanity under Khidmat-e-Khalq Foundation (KKF) at the time of the Kashmir earthquake and other natural catastrophes.
