Muhajir Qaumi Movement, PSP agree to attend MQM APC

Report in The News, Aug 22, 2017
KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) and the Muhajir Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Monday agreed to attend an All Party Conference (APC) that would be hosted by the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM-P) Pakistan on August 22, a year after Altaf Hussain’s speech that led to a crackdown against Muttahida.

An MQM delegation comprising Amir Khan, Faisal Sabzwari and others visited PSP headquarters where they were received by Hafeezuddin, Dr Sagheer and Waseem Aftab.

The two parties exchanged views on APC that aims to focus on issues ranging from local government system, to corruption plaguing provincial departments.

Addressing a press conference following the meeting, Anis advocate, a PSP leader, said, “principally we have decided to attend the meeting tomorrow”.“We hope that the MQM-P will adopt a clear stance against the “traitor” tomorrow.”

Speaking on occasion, Amir Khan said MQM had already announced its separation from founder of the party.“We should avoid controversial talk,” he said.

“APC will discuss corruption in Pakistan, particularly in Sindh. We want to chalk out a unanimous course of action for betterment of Karachi”.

Later on, the delegation met with Muhajir Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Afaq Ahemed and also invited him to attend the APC.

Accepting the invitation, Ahmed said: “We should meet, regardless of our political views”.

“We will give our view point about the issues facing Muhajir nation, and about the resources of Karachi,” he said,

Moreover, another delegation of the MQM led by Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui met with Pakistan People’s Party leader Nisar Khoro who said: “We stood by democracy, and would also do so in the future. We have received invitation to attend the APC, and will take a decision after consultation with the party”.https://www.thenews.com.pk/latest/224983-Muhajir-Qaumi-Movement-PSP-agree-to-attend-MQM-APC

MQM-Pakistan completes a turbulent year trying to stay relevant

by Zia Ur Rehman in The News, August 22, 2017
Karachi: A year has passed since Pakistan-based Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leaders and parliamentarians announced distancing themselves from party founder Altaf Hussain after his August 22 anti-state speech, with the decision to stop running the party from London.

But the year proved very challenging for Farooq Sattar’s MQM-Pakistan faction. Still reeling from the Karachi operation launched in September 2013, the party faced a number of challenges, from razing and closing of its central headquarters and sector and unit offices to arresting of party leaders and members.

The most important challenge, however, was to keep party workers and supporters away from Hussain’s personality clout as well as to keep the party intact in a situation when Mustafa Kamal and Anis Qaimkhani’s offshoot Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) attracted a number of lawmakers and members initially provided with an identity by the MQM.

While MQM-P leaders acknowledged that it was not an easy year for them, they claimed managing to keep the party intact.

MQM-P’s central leader Syed Aminul Haque told The News that after the split the Pakistan faction had adopted several revolutionary changes and made party policies through a consultative and democratic process.

“We gradually took party cadres and supporters into confidence who understand that all these decisions were taken in the interest of the party, the Urdu-speaking community, the vote bank, Karachi and Pakistan. It was the reason we have kept peace within the MQM intact.”

The MQM-P has amended the party’s constitution, removing powers of the party’s founder and also abolishing its notorious sector and unit system to introduce an organisational structure at district and union committee levels similar to other mainstream political parties.

On the electoral front, the party lost two by-polls – for the PS-127 (Karachi-XXXIX) and the PS-114 (Karachi-XXVI) constituencies – during the year, but won the by-elections in six union committees this April.

MQM-P leaders believe that the significant votes the party bagged in the two by-polls has proven that the Urdu-speaking community continues to support the party even in the face of Hussain’s calls for boycott.

“Both the by-polls helped the party escape from Hussain’s shadow and influence that he had on the votes of the Urdu-speaking community,” said Haque. “Now our eyes are on the 2018 general elections in which we shall again make a clean sweep of the province’s urban centres.”But political observers believe that the vote bank of the Urdu-speaking community is apparently split and future trends will be clear ahead of the general elections.

“There is widespread voter apathy among the community,” said Farhan Siddiqi, a political analyst and author of ‘The Politics of Ethnicity in Pakistan’.“They are concerned about development work in their areas because of not transferring powers to the elected representatives. It is creating a sense of deprivation among the community members and re-imposing the ‘Mohajir’ slogan.”

The MQM-P has organised a multi-party conference in Karachi on August 22 (today), mainly aimed at finding solutions to the city’s problems, for which it has invited two other Urdu-speaking parties: the PSP and the MQM-Haqiqi.

However, a section of analysts believes that since its inception, the MQM has operated around the personal clout of Hussain.

Obed Pasha, a political analyst who lectures in public policy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, told The News that MQM without Hussain was impossible as long as the founder was alive. “Anything short of that won’t work. Only after he’s gone will people look towards the MQM-P.”

Meanwhile, although the MQM-P succeeded in stopping most of its members from joining the PSP, it failed when it came to lawmakers Shaikh Abdullah and Irtiza Khalil Farooqui.Analysts believe that the PSP is neither here nor there because of clever intrigue of the MQM-P leadership of visibly disconnecting from the London leadership.

Moreover, regarding the ongoing operation against criminals and terrorists in the city, a paramilitary official said they had arrested only those MQM members who were involved in violence and not its peaceful activists. “Hussain is now history. We shall not tolerate anyone associated with his group.”

Separately, The News has learnt that the MQM-P is likely to get back its “legal” offices with the exception of its headquarters Nine Zero in return for its support to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz during the parliamentary vote for electing the new prime minister.

Confirming the information, Haque said the party’s Nawabshah zone office had recently been reopened. “We are hopeful that more offices in Karachi and Hyderabad will be given back in the coming days after submitting their legal records.”

MQM founder holds long meeting with anti-Pakistan US Congressman

By Murtaza Ali Shah in The News, August 18, 2017
LONDON: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s exiled founder Altaf Hussain has held talks with anti-Pakistan US Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and exiled Baloch leader Khan of Qalat at the MQM’s International Secretariat in order to work together for the “common cause”.

In a statement, the MQM said Altaf briefed the US lawmaker from California about alleged human rights violations and arrests of MQM workers in Karachi. The meeting lasted for four hours and members of MQM’s Rabita Committee attended the meeting.

When contacted, a MQM spokesman said the US Congressman expressed his sorrow over the rights abuses and assured the MQM leader that he will take up his party’s case at the US congress and other forums.

The spokesman confirmed that Khan of Qalat had also attended the meeting and agreed with Altaf Hussain that they will work together for the common cause. The MQM said it had been agreed that all “like-minded” people will work together in future and increase coordination.

Meeting with the openly hostile US Congressman comes after Altaf’s trusted lieutenant Nadeem Nusrat met Senator John McCain, Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and Ted Poe in Washington at the end of June to seek their help.

After The News and Geo TV published details of these meetings, including MQM-London’s recent intervention at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, MQM-Pakistan’s leader Farooq Sattar accused the London chapter and his former comrades of working against the interests of Pakistan and for shaking hands with the hostile elements known for their anti-Pakistan bias.

Farooq Sattar said Nadeem Nusrat’s meetings in Washington were part of London faction’s “anti-Pakistan agenda and continuation of 22nd August speech” by Altaf Hussain. Farooq Sattar said: “Nadeem Nusrat is involved with anti-Pakistan lobby in the US. We will not allow whatever MQM-London is doing in the name of Urdu speaking community. Representatives of Muhajirs are here along with their workers and supporters. The MQM founder should avoid using the name of Muhajirs. Demand that the US congress block Pakistan’s aid is ridiculous,” Farooq sattar said, adding that no one will be allowed to bring Muhajirs to disrepute.

Replying to Farooq Sattar, MQM London’s Nadeem Nusrat defended meeting with the US politicians and seeking help against Pakistan. He said MQM-London had been left with no choice after Altaf Hussain’s 22nd August speech which saw ban being imposed on his speeches and fragmentation of MQM into three groups.

MQM–London has made overtures to exiled Baloch factions in recent days and expressed its intention to work with them but no leading Baloch group has replied affirmatively. Mehran Baloch, exiled Baloch leader who campaigns at the UN level, has said that MQM at its peak was involved in actions against Baloch living in Karachi and discriminated against them.

Mehran Baloch said that MQM went out of its way to target Baloch people in Karachi during its reign. He and other Balochs have ruled out working with the MQM-London but MQM-London has grown closer to Khan of Qalat who had sought asylum in the UK vowing to take Pakistan to International Court of Justice but failing to do so in over ten years. The Khan of Qalat has previously held events in London with Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and Ted Poe against Pakistan.https://www.thenews.com.pk/print/224302-MQM-founder-holds-long-meeting-with-anti-Pakistan-US-Congressman

Sami Shahzad, a resident of the locality, said that he saw workers attacking each other – punching, kicking and beating each other with the sticks of flags that they were holding. “As the crescendo of the slogans increased, some of the workers started fighting.”

Shahzad said that it was not the first time such an incident happened in the area. “Due to the presence of almost all MQM offshoots – MQM-Pakistan, MQM-London, Muhajir Qaumi Movement – Haqiqi and PSP – the area is prone to clashes, since each of them consider the other a traitor.”https://tribune.com.pk/story/1480786/three-injured-mqm-pakistan-psp-clash/

Mustafa Kamal wants action against Altaf

Report in The Express Tribune, July 28, 2017
KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairperson Mustafa Kamal has demanded the federal government and interior minister take down the website and social media accounts of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement – London (MQM) as, according to him, it was a matter of the country’s sovereignty and honour.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday at PSP headquarters Pakistan House, Kamal asked the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz-led federal government and Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to take action against MQM founder Altaf Hussain for his alleged involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan.

He urged the authorities to make use of diplomatic channels with countries like the United Kingdom, South Africa and India in a bid to tackle the operations of the MQM-London and share with the said countries dossiers about the group’s alleged role in terrorist activities.
“The Rangers have made it clear, during their [Wednesday’s] press conference, how Altaf ordered the killing of [two] PSP workers and then appreciated the killers,” Kamal said. “[Altaf] has been continuously telling his party workers how to carry out terrorist activities during his speeches for the past month.”

Kamal said MQM-London was using its website and social media accounts to instigate terrorism and this should be tacked immediately. “On social media, profanities are being hurled at the country and directives have been given to kill innocent people,” Kamal said.https://tribune.com.pk/story/1468072/mustafa-kamal-wants-action-altaf/ q2

Two MQM-London men held in PSP workers’ killing case

by Imtiaz Ali in Dawn, July 27th, 2017
KARACHI: Pakistan Rangers, Sindh, on Wednesday claimed to have arrested two suspects belonging to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (London) for allegedly killing two Pak Sarzameen Party workers in Orangi Town.

Speaking at a press conference at the Rangers’ Headquarters, Col Qaiser Khattak said that the held suspects, Mohammad Danish and Mohammed Raheem, had killed PSP workers Nadeem Maulana and Rashid Lal Khan on the direction of MQM-L leaders through their ‘South Africa network’.

The two PSP workers were gunned down by armed motorcyclists outside their homes near Sindh Govt Qatar Hospital in Orangi on July 17.

The officer also showed a bank transaction of Rs50,000 made by some South Africa elements in the name of Mohammed Danish.

Col Qaiser also played a voice message said to be of Altaf Hussain in which the MQM founder congratulated Danish for doing ‘such a beautiful programme’.

Following the double murder in Orangi last week, the paramilitary force had set up a special team of officials, he said, adding that a witness provided vital information leading to the arrest of the suspects. The weapon and the motorbike used in the attack were also seized, said the Rangers’ officer.

Raids were under way to arrest their accomplices, he claimed.

According to him, the held suspects ‘confessed’ to their involvement in the double murder and said they showed their association with the MQM-L.

They told the investigators that they had received a WhatsApp message from some elements in South Africa such as Qamarul Islam alias Qamar Teddy and Waseem alias Abdullah. This message had also been retrieved from the mobile phone seized from the held suspects.

Two days after the double murder case, Abdullah sent a voice message to Mohammad Danish, in which Abdullah was heard telling Danish that Altaf Hussain also wanted to ‘directly’ talk with him.

Col Qaiser also played Altaf Hussain’s voice message that he said was made at around 5.10pm on July 19. Next day a transaction of Rs50,000 was made through a Pakistan-based bank, he added.

“The held suspects confessed that they carried out the double murder on directions of the party leaders in London.”

The suspects were also involved in spreading hatred against armed forces and the country and carrying out wall-chalking in favour of Altaf Hussain, the official said.

They disclosed that they were planning to target some political leaders and workers on the directives of Altaf Hussain, Nadeem Nusrat, Qamar Teddy and Rasheed alias Babu Bihari.

“I want to tell the MQM leaders sitting in London that now times have passed when they used to carry out targeted killings of people through one order, got [the] city closed through one strike call and got shops etc burnt over non-payment of extortion,” said Col Qaiser.

Now the citizens of Karachi and people living abroad have rejected them (MQM-London), he said.

‘Altaf network’
However, in reply to a question, the officer said that the ‘Altaf network’ did not exist in the city. Only some small groups were being financed through London and South Africa, he said.

He clarified that their activities were not ‘party specific’ but they were focusing on criminal elements only.

Police killings
Col Qaiser told the media that DG Rangers, Maj Gen Mohammed Saeed, had set up a joint investigation team to probe the recent targeted killing of policemen in the city and chaired a high-level meeting on Tuesday.

“We have got some good leads about identity and motive of the killers and good news would be shared soon,” said the official.

He said banned militant outfits were being operated from Afghanistan, therefore, different claims of responsibility were being made by various outfits. He opined that different claims of the killing by outfits were basically aimed at seeking ‘financing’. “We know from where these outfits are operating.”

The Rangers believed that Karachi’s situation has improved to a large extent.

“One or two targeted killings [have] tended to take place, but the situation [is] not alarming,” observed Col Qaiser.https://www.dawn.com/news/1347831/two-mqm-london-men-held-in-psp-workers-killing-case

Altaf Hussain’s nephew ‘arrested’ : report in The Express Tribune July 26, 2017
KARACHI: A nephew of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-London (MQM-L) founder Altaf Hussain was reportedly arrested in Karachi by law enforcement agencies.

The MQM-L has claimed that 52-year-old Abdul Aziz Ansari alias Chand Bhai was arrested on Tuesday while Hussain’s cousin, Khalid Hussain, who was earlier arrested during a raid in Karachi on July 19 remained missing.

In a statement issued by the MQM-London coordination committee, the committee condemned the arrest of Ansari, saying that he is an employee of the District Municipal Corporation, East.
“As soon as he sat in his car after leaving his office on Tuesday, plainclothes personnel took him away with them in a SUV,” according to the statement. “The plainclothes personnel of spy agency also covered their faces with masks.”

It further read that Ansari has no link with the politics but has been arrested twice. He used to live in Azizabad where he was previously arrested during a paramilitary raid at Nine Zero on March 11, 2015.

The statement further said that the whereabouts of Khalid Hussain, who was picked up from North Nazimabad, remained untraceable. The coordination committee demanded the immediate release of the Altaf Hussain’s relatives. Meanwhile, no law enforcement agency has disclosed their arrests.https://tribune.com.pk/story/1467204/altaf-hussains-nephew-arrested/
