Rangers brought weapons wrapped in blankets to show recovery from 90: Altaf

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement Chief Altaf Hussain on Wednesday accused Rangers personnel of bringing arms wrapped in blankets  to party headquarters 90 and showed recovery of the arms from the office.

Addressing party workers gathered at 90 after the Rangers raid on party headquarters, Altaf said that what Rangers did today at MQM headquarters no law or civilized norms allowed such ‘highhandedness’.

He said that the raid on Nine Zero and his aged sister’s house by the Rangers was unjustified.

He condemned the killing of MQM activist Waqas Ali Shah and blamed the Rangers for shooting him. He also said that over 60 workers of MQM have been arrested during the raid.

He went on to say that the Rangers claim it was not their bullet that killed Waqas and instead it was a bullet from a TT-pistol. He further said that he will also reply in a befitting manner to the Rangers’ superiors, asking them for justice.

The MQM chief questioned why no other party’s offices were ever raided in this manner and further said that the party had requested for an army operation in Karachi to stop the killings in the city, however, instead of an army operation a Rangers raid has been conducted.

He made clear that MQM has zero tolerance for terrorism and any terrorist elements within the party, adding that, however, if the Rangers still felt MQM was at fault then why not hand over the whole party to the Rangers and hand over Karachi to Jamat-e-Islami (JI), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
