KARACHI - MQM has decided to seek the support of political and religious parties to counter the threat of Talibanisation in the Sindh province as well in the City. The MQM has started a public awareness campaign against Talibanisation in the province and organised corner meetings in various areas of Karachi to get popular support through creating awareness. Talking to The Nation, MQM deputy parliamentary leader in National Assembly Haider Abbas Rizvi said the party would also get the support of political and religious parties to counter the menace of Talibanisation in the province. He added, in this regard, MQM has sought the support of ANP and other leading parties of the security of Pakistan. Referring to the recent warning of Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud, he said that recent warning of Baitullah Meshud to the NWFP government to quit within five days was the proof that these elements wanted to destabilise the country for their vested interests. Rizvi added that MQM was following the footsteps of ANP, whose leadership had announced to establish defence committees in the NWFP province to ward off the threat of Talibanisation. He said that all top religious scholars belonging to different schools of thought have assured their support to the MQM to counter Talibanization in Sindh. He referred the views of Altaf Hussain that MQM would not allow anyone to enforce their self-defined Shariah in the country. MQM lawmakers in National Assembly Asif Hasnain and Provincial Minister Sheikh Afzal on Friday met with the Grand Mufti Rafi Usmani at Darul Uloom Korangi and informed him about the conspiracy of Talibanisation in the Sindh province. Mufti Rafi Usmani assured them his full support against this growing threat.
