MQM announces participation in Dr. Tahirul Qasri’s Jan 14 Long March

Karachi: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), the PPP-led government’s coalition partner in Sindh and federal level, has announced joining the January 14 Long March of Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran from Lahore to Islamabad.

Addressing a late night press conference after the meeting of MQM Rabita Committee at its headquarter ‘Nine Zero on Sunday, MNA Dr. Farooq Sattar said the manifesto of Dr. Tahirul Qadri, chief of Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran, is same of the MQM for which their leader Altaf Hussain had been struggling since last 33 years.

Sattar said Dr. Tahirul Qadri wants bringing an end to feudalism and the MQM had also been struggling for the same cause. “The MQM, under the leadership of Altaf Hussain, had been following this program and sent the people from lower and middle class to the assemblies to represent the poor masses.

He however made it clear that MQM was not in favour of delaying elections. “This has already been made clear by Dr. Tahirul Qadri also who says he wants reforms in the system through an impartial caretaker setup. Similarly, MQM also stands for the reforms.

Sattar said MQM wanted to bring a revolution in the country much before but efforts were made to crush it and a large number of its workers and supporters were martyred. “The MQM however survived despite state oppression.
