MQM to stage demo outside UK PM’s house on August 2
WASHINGTON: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has announced to stage a protest against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in front of the British Prime Minister’s residence, 10-Downing Street in London on August 2.
The announcement came in response to the demonstration staged by the PTI outside the10, Downing Street on Sunday against the MQM, urging the British PM to act against the MQM leadership for violating British and Pakistani laws by hurling threats at the Pakistan’s state institutions while using the British soil.
Meanwhile, a protest was held in front of the White House by the MQM America against what it called the operation against the Mohajirs in Karachi. The demonstration was led by the members of Central Committee of MQM America, Chapter In-charge Faisal Usman and attended by Chapter Committee members, MQM leaders, workers and supporters including elders, women and children.
They chanted slogans in favour of the MQM leader Altaf Hussain, establishment of a ‘Mohajir Province’ and equal rights for the Mohajirs.They also appealed to the US government to play its role in stopping in what they called the ‘genocide’ of the Mohajir community.
Those who made speeches on the occasion said the protest had been organised to attract the attention of the people of the United States and other communities of the world towards the alleged miserable condition of the Mohajir community due to the “state-sponsored atrocities”.
They appealed to the US President Barack Obama and members of the American Senate and Congress to use their good offices with a view to compelling the Government of Pakistan to stop the ongoing operation against the Mohajirs in Karachi. They vowed not to compromise on their struggle for the rights of Mohajirs.
