Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) leader, Haider Abbas Rizvi said Friday that propaganda against his party was being used to suppress and malign its image.

Addressing a press conference in Karachi alongside Rabita Committee members Senator Babar Khan Ghauri and Nasreen Jalil, Rizvi said that false claims were made about the existence of a Muhajir Republican Army, while the party’s Senator and former Minister for Ports and Shipping Babar Ghauri was blamed for 19,000 missing containers from the Karachi port.

Rizvi further stated that the US Embassy has termed the allegation baseless adding that certain forces are focused on spewing hatred for MQM, but all attempts at negative propaganda had failed.
