Mustafa Kamal launches 'Pak Sar Zameen' party

KARACHI: Mustafa Kamal, former Karachi Nazim and de-facto chief of the MQM's dissident group, on Wednesday formally launched his political party namely Pak Sar Zameen, demanding the government to announce a general amnesty for workers of his former party.

Former leaders of the Muttahida Quami Movement Dr Sagheer Ahmed, Raza Haroon, Wasim Aftab, Iftikhar Alam and Anees Qaimkhani were also present during the ceremony held at Banquet Hall and attended by scores of male and female supporters.

"Today, on  March 23rd we are laying foundation of nationalism.," he said before announcing name of his party at the end of a long speech, in which he outlined manifesto of his party that would be announced latter.

He urged the government to announce a similar package for youth of Karachi and Hyderabad as was granted to disgruntled elements of Balochistan. "I am not siding with anyone, but i will say nobody is born a target killer or an agent of RAW... somebody did make them killers," he said.

Mustafa Kamal said  there was a need to restore local government system before talking about creating more provinces in the country as new federating units would be of no use if a common man is not empowered. "It is our believe that solution of problems lies in the local government system," he said.

People are divided on the basis of their political affiliation. We (Pakistanis) take pride in identifying ourselves as members of a certain political party rather than calling ourselves Pakistanis, he said.

“I ask my supporters if you want to join us, then you must learn to respect our political opponents,” he said.
