HYDERABAD/SUKKUR: Sindh Tarraqi Passand Party (STP) chairman Dr Qadir Magsi has termed MQM an “anti-Sindh gang of international agents which wants to create a separate province by dividing Sindh”.

In a statement here on Friday, Dr Magsi said the STP believed from day one that MQM wanted to divide Sindh. He said that by raising the demand for a separate province, Mr Hussain had proved that he wanted to fan ethnic riots in the province.

He said that Sindh was the motherland of Sindhis and they would not tolerate any attack on its integrity.

MQM enjoys support of “official powers” which have been nurturing it from time to time but it is their wishful thinking that the group could divide Sindh, according to Dr Magsi.

Meanwhile, activists of STP held a protest demonstration in Sukkur and burnt tyres on the National Highway connecting Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan against Mr Hussain’s statement.

On the occasion, activists of the party raised slogans against the MQM and its chief.
