KARACHI- Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain today disowned Sindh Governor Ishratul Ibad , whose political career shares a long history with the MQM. Speaking via phone from London, he called Sindh Governor a "representative of the establishment". Army holds conversations with Ibad whenever it suits them, he added.

"Ishratul Ibad is not a representative of MQM," Hussain clarified, advising media not to portray him as an MQM member.

He also blamed the governor for not taking any notice of the raids against the party.
