Karachi: MQM-H alleges 6 kidnappings
KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) kidnapped six activists of the MQM–Haqiqi from outside the Karachi Press Club on Wednesday, alleged MQM-H Joint Rabita Committee In-charge Akhtar Hussain and MQM-H Women Department In-charge Rida Hakim on Thursday.
They said the MQM handed them over to the police, who registered fake cases against them. The two leaders said that this was part of the MQM’s conspiracy against the MQM-H, adding that nearly 20 activists, including women, were still missing after Wednesday’s clashes.
“The MQM-H has been oppressed and targeted for the past five years,” Mrs Asim, who claimed to be from the party’s women wing, told a press conference, a day after the scuffle. “We were targeted by activists of the MQM, who not only beat and tortured us but also killed a 13-year-old boy by spraying him with bullets,” she alleged.
Denial The nominated deputy parliamentary leader of the MQM in the Sindh Assembly, Syed Faisal Sabzwari, told Daily Times that the party had nothing to do with the incident that took place outside the press club on Wednesday.
