MQM forms committee to allay disgruntled leaders’ concerns

April 22, 2016


With the Mustafa Kamal-led Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) taking away more and more of its dissident leaders, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has constituted a nine-member committee to bring back its disgruntled leaders back in the party fold. 

The committee, led by MQM deputy convener Kaiful Wara, will contact senior MQM leaders who have distanced themselves due to various differences with the party leadership. 

The committee includes Amin-ul-Haq, Ahmed Saleem Siddiqui, Zareen Majid, Abdul Haseeb, Iqbal Muqaddam, and ex-Town Nazim Landhi Ismail Qureshi, who was recently included in the Rabita Committee.

Qureshi had also distanced himself from the party after having differences with Mustafa Kamal. Amin-ul-Haq was hopeful that the committee could persuade the party’s inactive senior leaders to rejoin and become part of the its activities. 

“The MQM is passing through a crucial phase in the wake of people quitting party in large numbers, so the party wanted that its stalwarts, who either left or sidelined themselves, should come to participate in the activities as their expertise and presence is of utmost importance for the party.”
