ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Aitzaz Ahsan Monday said the Rangers-led operation in Karachi would benefit Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Altaf Hussain.

“There is a strong impression that Sindh Rangers have been operating a dry cleaning machine and everyone who is set free by them comes out as a clean man,” the PPP leader told reporters.

“The operation will benefit MQM’s militant wing”, said Ahsan, adding that Farooq Sattar and Asif Husnain announced their disassociation from the MQM supremo after being released by the Rangers.

“Sattar and Husnain should have announced their disassociation from Altaf Hussain before they were arrested by the Rangers,” Ahsan said.

The PPP senator also said the Rangers were exceeding their legal powers and it would create further “space for the militant wing of MQM”.
