Dr Farooq Sattar wasn't invited

Afaq Ahmed, the chief of Mohajir Qaumi Movement Haqiqi, attended an iftaar dinner hosted by MQM-Pakistan in Karachi on Friday.

Ahmed was warmly welcomed by MQM-P convener Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and senior party leader Faisal Sabzwari.

Ahmed was MQM supremo Altaf Hussain’s close aide in the 1980s. However, he left the party after developing differences with his leaders in the early 1990s and launched his own political party. Several hundred people were killed in clashes between the two groups in the 1990s.

Waseem Aftab, a leader of the Pak Sarzameen Party, also attended the iftaar dinner. Dr Farooq Sattar, the disgruntled MQM-P leader, wasn't invited.

Dr Sattar has been removed from the party, said Sabzwari.

Other attendees were former finance ministers Asad Umar and Miftah Ismail (who were seated next to each other), Federal Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, PTI leaders Haleem Adil Sheikh and Khurrum Sher Zaman, Karachi Archbishop Joseph Coutts, philanthropist Ramzan Chippa, Karachi Arts Council President Ahmed Shah, KU Professor Atta-ur-Rehman and actor Javed Sheikh, among others.

    Karachi is the heart of Paistan. We want it to be at peace and develop into a city better than Dubai.
