LONDON: Responding to the call of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamat-e-Islami (JI), hundreds of demonstrators lodged their protest against Muttahida Qaumi Movment (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain’s telephonic speeches in Pakistan.
As many as 1500 PTI and JI supports and other demonstrators gathered at 10 Downing Street in London to lodge protest against MQM chief Altaf Hussain. The PTI protesters claimed that Altaf Hussain had threatened its anti vote rigging demonstrators in Karachi with dire consequences during a telephonic speech.
The participants of the demonstration demanded of the British government to put a curb on any interference by any kind of group or organization from Britain into the politics of Pakistan and provocation of the latter’s people.
Meanwhile, the London Police earlier rejected arresting activists of a Pakistan-based political party here.
According to sources, the London police came up with this clarification in the wake of a news item claiming the arrests that went viral on the social media.
The Metropolitan Police in a statement issued here termed such reports as groundless fabrications.
New Scotland Yard also said that they had received a myriad of individual complaints against a political personality belonging to Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), which they were looking into closely.
