Water Resources Minister Faisal Vawda has said on Friday that members of the MQM-London were involved in the murder of former MQM MNA Ali Raza Abidi in Karachi.
In a joint press conference with Shiekh Rasheed, Vawda said, “According to my analysis, Altaf Hussain is responsible for Abidi’s murder.” He added, “All MQM associate people are criminals and Abidi murder was because of the in-house fight.” Abidi was killed outside his house in Karachi’s Defence on December 25. Two assailants on a motorcycle shot him and then fled.
Majority of MQM members are charged with criminal offences like of Baldia Town case, he claimed. Justice will be provided to all in Naya Pakistan, he said. “In this Naya Pakistan everyone will be treated equally, and each person will be given their deserved punishment by law.”
He remarked, “Abidi was a brother, friend and a colleague to me and I will soon reveal the culprit behind his murder with the help of Sindh IG.”
Vawda expressed similar sentiments while speaking to media outside the Supreme Court’s Lahore Registry. He said the factions — the MQM-Pakistan and London — are fighting with each other. He said if you examine the last three speeches of MQM founder Altaf Hussain you will see a pattern.
He said the Sindh government is asleep but they won’t let Abidi’s murderers get away, even if they have to dig them up.
While speaking about Zardari’s name in the fake account case, Sheikh Rasheed remarked that “Asif Zardari’s second home is central jail, he is the biggest criminal of all time, and he is in contact with all the criminals of Pakistan since the time he was in jail.”
