KARACHI– The Coordination Committee of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) furiously stated that the MQM party workers were being misrepresented as terrorists and target killers. According to them, the operation in Karachi is not producing favorable results due to biased proceedings. MQM said in a joint statement that its party workers were being arrested from mosques, homes and marketplaces during Ramzan, whereby they were being subjected to inhumane torture within the government’s custody after arrest under false pretexts. The Committee further said that dozens of party workers and political affiliates had been arrested from several areas of Karachi, of which several were still missing.
According to the MQM Committee, party workers faced character assassination after being arrested whilst being projected as terrorists and target killers.
