KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Wednesday announced the instigation of a ‘reformation’ process within the party ranks, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to members of the party’s Rabita (coordination) Committee via telephone from London, the MQM chief prohibited collecting any sort of donations from the general public. He said there is a ban imposed on funds collection, adding that the basic party membership of culpable worker/workers will be revoked upon any such complaints.

Hussain said the MQM follows “zero tolerance policy” when it comes to “China Cutting,” settlements and land-grabbing. “There is no room in MQM for people involved in these unlawful activities,” he added.

The MQM chief urged any party activist, involved in land and property grabbing or sale/purchase of houses, apartments or plots, to voluntarily resign from the party membership.

Otherwise, he added, upon receiving any such complaint, party membership of the guilty worker will be terminated.

On Tuesday night, Altaf Hussain had also disbanded his party’s Karachi Tanzeemi (organising) Committee citing ‘hooliganism’ during his speech on Sunday morning.

" There is no room in MQM for people involved in these unlawful activities,”... I am afraid there is a typing mistake here. It should be like this... " There is no room in MQM for people involved in any lawful activities,”

Because of investigation by the UK suthorities, he now wants to portray a different picture. If that happens in real, the people of Karachi might feel liberated to some extent.
