Police on Monday removed several banners sporting remarks against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Dr Farooq Sattar, Waqt News reported.

According to details, the posters and banners had appeared in Regal Chowk, Saddar area of the metropolis, but were later removed by police personnel.

The development comes after MQM leaders in Pakistan, earlier this month, submitted a resolution in the National Assembly Secretariat to condemn controversial remarks of Altaf Hussian.

The August 22 attack on media houses by MQM workers triggered a crackdown leading to the sealing of the party’s headquarters Nine Zero, along with several other offices, in the metropolis and elsewhere in Sindh.

Hours after Altaf’s controversial remarks, Dr Farooq Sattar, flanked by several party leaders, announced the party’s decision to sideline the London-based Muttahida leadership.
