Karachi: Taking strong exception to the statement of rangers spokesman, Coordination Committee of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), has demanded the chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) to take immediate notice of this statement.

In a statement issued in Sunday’s wee hours by the party’s main decision-making body, the MQM pointed out that the statement by the paramilitary force is an open admission that Karachi operation is afoot exclusively against the MQM.

People are being arrested not because they committed any offence; instead, they are being copped as they are MQM’s office-bearers, the MQM said adding the paratroopers are capturing the MQM’s office-bearers under an organized plan.

MQM raised question, if it is a criminal offence to be the MQM’s sector or unit in-charge; hence, there is little doubt left in the fact that Karachi operation is being waged to exterminate the party.

Snubbing the rangers claim regarding the appearance of political workers before courts, the MQM denied the rangers assertion saying, over 50 workers of the MQM are still unaccounted for even after the lapse of several months.

The Coordination Committee said Tanzeemi Committee mentioned by the rangers has no existence at all, as the body has long been dissolved. The MQM’s body asserted that MQM’s political and welfare activities have been practically banned, adding the rangers have turned the entire megacity into an occupied territory.
