ISLAMABAD -  While the MQM-Pakistan has refused to tender resignations from assemblies, the MQM-London office is still demanding all legislators to quit parliament and seek fresh mandate.

The tussle between MQM-Pakistan and MQM-London is fast increasing with each passing day as the latter said the statement of Khawaja Izharul Hasaan has no value. Earlier, Izhar had stated that the party legislatures will not tender resignations from their seats on the demand of MQM founder.

“His (Khawaja Izhar-ul-Hassan) statement has no value. MQM constitution revolves around Altaf Hussain,” said MQM’s senior member Wasay Jalil while talking to The Nation from MQM’s London office.

Jalil was still confident that all MQM-Pakistan lawmakers will respect the demand of its main London office.

Whereas, some of MQM legislators said they would not immediately quit parliamentary politics on the demand of London office.

“The issue of tendering resignations has been discussed in length in the internal meeting and still remains undecided,” said a senior MQM-Pakistan member on condition of anonymity.  As Altaf Hussain on his controversial remarks, a couple of weeks before, was condemned in the parliament and members of the party also disassociated themselves from founder of party.

Some of the lawmakers of MQM after the controversial speech of Altaf Hussian have already tendered resignations. Some of them had joined Pakistan Sarzameen Party (PSP) led by Mustafa Kamal.
