“The participants of the conference will renew their pledge that Pakistan must get rid of the US imperialistic influence. The US and its agents are perturbed due to holding of the conference of peace, unity and sanity because they do not want unity and peace in Pakistan.”

MWM leaders condemned the murders of Shia lawyer Salahuddin Jafri and his son Ali Raza Jafri who was also a lawyer. They said that had the government and independent judiciary given capital punishment to the terrorists, thousands of mothers would not have lost their children and dear ones.
They said their ancestors helped establish Pakistan and now they would defend Pakistan. They asked the journalists to cooperate with the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal in this noble and just cause.
