Pak to provide evidence against MQM founder’s hate speech to Britain   

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has decided to provide evidence against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder to Britain for provoking people to violence on August 22.

Sources in the ministry of interior told Geo News that the British government would be asked to take legal action against MQM founder in the light of evidence.

However, Pakistan would not seek his extradition as it was not possible because there was no treaty between Pakistan and the UK governments. And Also, he does not have Pakistani passport.

They said that Scotland Yard was also conducting its own investigation in this regard and was collecting evidence against MQM founder.

Sources said that services of a legal council would also be taken, if required.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan is in close contact with British authorities regarding the issue, sources said.

They further said that the interior ministry was pushing UK’s Home Department to take action against MQM founder as provoking people to violence was also against British laws.

Meanwhile, sources said the Sindh government has also provided the necessary documents to the interior ministry in this regard.
