MQM respects PTI’s right to stage sit-ins: Altaf Hussain

LONDON: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain Thursday said it is Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) democratic and constitutional right to stage protest demonstrations and sit-ins in the Karachi city.

According to a statement issued here, Altaf Hussain said his party respects PTI’s right to stage protests and sit-ins, urging the Imran Khan-led party to keep its protest peaceful.

He further said every political and religious party reserves right to hold protest demonstrations in any area of Karachi, adding that no political party is believed to oppose PTI’s sit-ins and protests in the megapolis.
