Open Letter to British High Commissioner in Pakistan

Excellency Philip Barton

Dear Sir,

I wish to bring to your notice the incitement to violence, use of abuse and antics spreading hate, of Altaf Hussain leader of the MQM. He is not only a British citizen but is using British territory to incite people to violence in Pakistan. His party is known to have an armed mafia wing which indulges in extortion, blackmail and murder. The MQM has terrorized the citizens of Karachi for decades as well as indulging in murders of journalists and political rivals. Our woman leader Zahra Shahid was murdered by MQM in her driveway in Karachi in 2013. Journalist Wali Babar also fell prey to MQM in Karachi when he was exposing them. In September 2012, at least 259 people were burnt alive in the inferno at Ali Enterprises in Baldia Town, Karachi. At first, the incident was reported as a mishap caused by short circuit in faulty electricity wiring. But three years later, it was labeled a terrorist activity. Recently, a Joint Investigation Team found MQM to be involved in a factory fire in Karachi that led to over 258 deaths including of women and children – which was set off because the owners did not pay the extortion money to MQM’s mafia wing.
In Past Tahreek e Insaaf Chairman Mr Imran Khan, Former Home Minister of Sindh Mr Zulifkar Mirza and large No of Pakistanis had presented a Report on the incident along with other documents to Scotland Yard, but for some inexplicable reason the British Government did not move against Altaf Hussain. Presently, the man has multiple murder cases pending against him in Pakistan but he remains in the safe protection of the British government. From his London base he exhorts his Party to unleash violence and extortion in the urban centers of Sindh, especially Karachi. Unfortunately, the British government refuses to enforce its own laws which do not allow a British citizen to incite people to violence or indulge in extortion – either within the UK or overseas. We do not think it is morally, politically or legally justifiable for the British government to be seen as an abettor to violence and extortion in Pakistan by providing protection to their citizen who is publicly inciting violence against political rivals, journalists, the business community and also state institutions in Pakistan. Recently the Rangers and JIT submitted a report in High courts Sindh and claimed to arrest a senior Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) worker who was allegedly involved in the May 12, 2007 carnage in an operation carried out in Karachi’s Mehmoodabad area. The accused, identified as Abdul Rafiq Rajput alias Kaein, was MQM’s sector in-charge in Mehmoodabad.According to the Rangers spokesperson, during the initial interrogation, the suspect confessed he was involved in the May 12 carnage near the Baloch Colony bridge. He was also leading a team of targeted killers, headed by Amir alias Dawani of Manzur Colony. In this carnage above 159 peoples were killed and dozens were injured .
MQM is not political Party but a Fascist and ethnic Mafia, during his establishment he killed thousand innocent people, lawyers, Journalist, Political Rival, Religious Scholars, Police officers, Security personals and Judges. MQM chief is giving such directives from UK and Sindh National Party understand that UK Govt is also involved in such criminal act, patronizing and encouraging him.
We request you to realize the urgency of your government moving against Altaf Hussain by removing the protection of citizenship under which he is hiding and evading multiple criminal charges in Pakistan including of murder. If UK Govt will not take against UK citizen Altaf Hussain, Sindh National Party announces Protest Rally in front UK Deputy High Commission Office at Karachi on 27 th February 2015.

Yours Sincerely Ameer Bhanbhro
