ISLAMABAD: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) MNAs on Monday walked out of National Assembly session to register their protest against the ongoing Karachi targeted operation, terming it discriminatory.
Speaking from outside the National Assembly building, MQM leader Dr. Farooq Sattar alleged that violation of law and constitution is being carried out by ‘the law enforcers’ in Karachi.
He said MQM was being made the target of political vengeance and even the party’s senators were being harassed.
Dr Sattar said a restaurant of MNA Ali Raza Abdi was raided in Karachi and demanded an end to what he called the persistent attempts to label MQM as a traitor.
He claimed that 40 workers of MQM were killed extra-judicially and that Karachi operation was not being undertaken to stamp out terrorism.
“Two hundred MQM workers were killed in targeted actions while 150 workers were subjected to enforced disappearance,” he alleged.
He condemned those who filed a case of treason against MQM chief Altaf Hussain and called upon the Prime Minister, Interior Minister and Chief Minister Punjab to take notice of the matter.
Dr Sattar said his party was trying to seek a meeting with the Prime Minister but it is not getting an appointment.
He said how could durable peace be made possible when one party is being meted out such discriminatory treatment.
He reiterated the claim that an ethnic genocide was underway in Karachi and this is only going to fan hatred among people.
