KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has demanded an explanation from PPP Chairman Bilalwal Bhutto-Zardari over the latter's remarks of Oct 6, calling for the reigning in of na-maloom afraad (unknown persons), the MQM website said.
The MQM chief has also asked the chiefs of law enforcement agencies (LEAs), former president Asif Ali Zardari, former interior minister Rehman Malik, Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and Sindh Governor Ishratul Ibad Khan to answer his query within 15 days after holding an inquiry into Bilawal's statements.
Addressing a gathering of family members of people killed in the 2007 Karsaz blast, the Pakistan Peoples Party chairman on the first day of Eidul Azha had called upon the MQM chief to ask his ‘unknown persons' to take caution. Bilawal had warned that if any PPP workers were hurt, he would, like the London Metropolitan Police, make the MQM chief's life miserable.
In his statement, Hussain asked on what basis did Bilawal level such allegations and issued a threat against him.
Hussain further said that if the PPP Chairman, Co-chairman and the party's Central Executive Committee failed to address his query, then he would be left with no option but to take legal action against Bilawal for using threatening language against him.
