PESHAWAR, 26 June: Minister for Interior Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said the Pakistan government will contact the UK government over allegations carried against the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) in a BBC report.
Addressing a press conference yesterday, the minister said the BBC report has pinpointed a very important problem which needs thorough investigation. The report had alleged two days ago that the MQM had received funding from India. Mr Nisar said the government is seriously looking into the matter. He said the issue of Indian funding to a Pakistani political party is bigger than Dr Imran Farooq murder case.
On the other hand, the MQM chief Altaf Hussain said a conspiracy is being carried out to end the only political party in Pakistan which represents the poor and middle class. He said conspiracy against the MQM will not succeed.
In a telephonic address to his party workers from London, the MQM chief said the enemies were hatching conspiracy to eliminate the party. He vowed not to end his struggled even if it cost his life.
