Like it or Not: About MQM

Being a Sindhi and being a Karachite for almost 20 years, I have observed closely MQM through thick`n`thin and am able to compile following facts and comments:


  • MQM before the Musharafs era was scattered with some uncontrolled workers and fame hungry people if you have heard about extortion in the name of MQM I could'nt deny it completely. But once MQM got the chance in Musharraf era they rapidly improve their image in this aspect, they have successfully organized the party and are able to cope with such workers/elements.


  • Militant Wing as MQM is always associated with has also been there and for understandable reason, the thing is when you are living among Feudal Lords that have their own private prisons and army what options do you have and no one can deny PPP consist of 80% Feudal Lords and Also having Don as Pir Pagarah living around you can expect what are circumstances. Incase of other Party I dont need to mention about ANP the party which consider weapons as their honor what could be worst than this about PML (N) claiming to be liberal is far from the fact the party was associated with establishment and it is a bitter truth establishment has been their Militant wing as one refer if terrorizing people.


  • If we talk about Leadership looking at other parties feels like one man show considering PML-N, PPP, PTI or even PMLQ, only MQM and JUI are the only parties with electoral structure having said so JUI will be crossed out with reference to Religious/Political combination they represent plus lack of visionary. So it comes to MQM who has Rabita Committee as their think tank and are able to come up with sound decisions and vision as we have seen one of its reflection in the shape of NazimeKarachi.


  • Talking about MQM joining every other Government, this sound bad as it is heard but the ground reality can be judged by looking at PTI, Imran Khan is truly loyal and visionary person but his problem comes when he thinks he is the only one and this left him out alone so the party has been left as an Internet Party. The thing is in order to win or loose you have to stay in the ground.

The Bottom line is MQM may not be the best party but looking at the others it is better for sure.

I am a Pakistani and living in this Motherland since birth. I have observed all the parties and will try to answer your points respectively

Gang of Target Killers (MQM) is still scattered with some of the members busy in killing while others are organizing with some of them planning outside the country, including Master of this GANG (70 criminal charges including those of murderer and other serious crimes). This is the blunder of Musharraf to let this GANG flourish as this is the cancer for the society and is obvious from recent target killings. Whole of the GANG is still hungry for fame and they even used to threaten channles and even used to cut cables if they are not given live coverage

GANG is only visible in cities and their are no feudals in cities. Moreover instead of their so-called slogan against feudalism they have divided the city for their politics (like Hayderabad) just to avoid feudals .They themselves have feudal mind as they have supported candidate of PML(Functional) in recent bye-election. This GANG is establishment made and has private torture cells which are no less than private jails of feudals. In all those cities where this GANG does not exists there is no Target Killing, so no other party gives shelter to Target Killers as this GANG gives. Just recently before the Long March for the Restoration of Judiciary there was a serious tension between PML(N) and PPPP but there was no killing or firing at each others' offices or acivists. This shows that in all other parties except this GANG sensible leaders exist at some tier.

Like all other parties, you have mentioned, this GANG has a Master which is not even in this country and he is also a life time disease. Like other parties final decision is made by Master of GANG and there is no worth of members the of GANG (so-called Rabita Committee), for example just recently GANG members (so-called Rabita Committee) have decided to leave the coalition but after a phone discussion between Master of GANG and Rehman Malik they have decided against it because GANG Master has pulled the string against their decision from outside the country.

This GANG cannot survive without Government as they need a continuous support to release their Terrorists. Moreover as this GANG has been in Govt since their abnormal birth and have joined both political and non-political Governments so they are alone responsible for all those bad deeds which all other parties have done seperatly in their respective tenures.

The bottom line is that GANG of Target Killers is amongst the leading BlackMailers along with Maulana Fazlur Rehman and they are far worst than all other parties

I have aswered all the questions thoroughy in my post and if anyone of you has any solid point left in your mind in favour of this GANG then come up as all of these misconceptions should be rectified. As far as belonging to the party is concerned I think all of us should belong to some party as we have to select our representatives in the elections and we should be sincere to this duty. Moreover, I would like to congratulate ftaj1 that he belongs to a party rather than GANG of Target Killers.

The Karachi ruling party 'run like the mafia' from an office block in London

MQM accused of planning carnage which left 42 dead
Khan calls for leader in UK to face anti-terror charges


Declan Walsh in Karachi and Matthew Taylor
The Guardian, Saturday 2 June 2007
Article history


Outside may be Karachi but inside the discreetly guarded room all minds are focused on London. The clock is set to British summer time and a pair of telephones connect to an office 5,000 miles away, from where a controversial Pakistani leader runs his political empire.
Altaf Hussain leads the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) - a powerful, popular and, critics say, thuggish political force that has a vice-like grip on Karachi. At "Nine Zero", the party headquarters in a middle-class suburb, his presence looms large. A giant poster hangs over the entrance and reverential acolytes speak of "Altaf bhai", or brother. But the great leader is missing.

For the past 16 years Mr Hussain has lived in self-imposed exile in the UK, first as an asylum seeker and now as a British citizen. Based in an office block on Edgware High Street in north London he rules by phone, directing his closest lieutenants in long, late-night conversations. But in Pakistan that arrangement has become a matter of controversy - one about to land at the British government's door.

Yesterday the cricketer turned politician Imran Khan arrived in London to try to have Mr Hussain prosecuted under British anti-terror laws. Three weeks ago gunmen opened fire on a rally in support of the chief justice, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, triggering a day of bloodshed that left 42 people dead. Mr Khan - as well as lawyers, human rights activists and opposition parties - accuse Mr Hussain of orchestrating the carnage from his sofa in London.

"The whole thing was planned. No British citizen is allowed to sit in London and direct terrorist operations abroad. So why should Altaf Hussain?" said Mr Khan who described the MQM as "a fascist movement run by criminals".

If Pakistan has to arrest al-Qaida operatives then Britain has an obligation to pick up Mr Hussain, added Mr Khan, who plans to bring a petition to Downing Street. "There's a war on terror going on but here we have Pakistan's No 1 terrorist being given sanctuary by the British government," he said.

The MQM denies the charges, and insists it was the victim and not the perpetrator of May 12. The party says 13 of its own activists were among the dead, and last week it produced a video from May 12 showing apparent supporters of the rival Pakistan People's party firing their guns in the air. "This is a conspiracy against us. Our decision to hold a rally on May 12 may be open to criticism, but we were not involved in armed attacks," said Dr Farooq Sattar, head of the party in Pakistan.

But Mr Hussain has little to say. At the MQM's "International Secretariat" on Edgware High Street - a red brick office block opposite a supermarket - a party official said the leader was not available for comment. But he was happy to show the Guardian around the offices, which he confirmed was Mr Hussain's London headquarters, and he vowed to repel any court action by Mr Khan.

The fight is getting personal. Back in Karachi graffiti slurs against Imran Khan appeared on walls and the MQM-dominated local government has banned him from the city for one month.

The MQM was founded in 1984 by Mr Hussain, a former Chicago cab driver, and won broad support among the "mohajirs" - Muslims who fled India after partition in 1947. The party prided itself on its well-oiled machine and its secular, liberal outlook. But it was also linked to extortion, gun smuggling and South African crime networks, according to a senior police officer speaking on condition of anonymity. "That's what happens when a political party is run like the mafia," he said.

Local reporters have a rich store of-tales from the 1990s. One said she found a severed hand as a warning in her front garden, another was kidnapped from his home.

But since it entered a coalition government with President Pervez Musharraf in 2002, the party has projected a different image based on secularism, economic development and support for the "war on terror". Moderates such as the Karachi mayor, Mustafa Kamal, boast of new roads, sewage systems and billions of pounds in fresh investment. "MQM believes in every sect and religion. We are against extremism. We were the first people on the streets after 9/11," he said.

But since May 12 the party's aspirations of becoming a national force lie in shreds, and there are worrying echoes of past tactics. On Tuesday, three Karachi journalists with foreign news agencies found unmarked envelopes containing a single bullet on their car windscreens. Two of them had earlier been denounced as "anti-mohajir" by the MQM-linked Muhajir Rabita Council.

Will Mr Hussain ever come home? At Nine Zero, where beefy young men with baseball caps stand guard, there is little sign. "We do not want him to come back to Karachi; it is too dangerous here," said parliamentarian Faisal Subzwari.

But there is always hope. A few doors down Mr Hussain's deserted terraced house is waiting, protected by blastproof metal shutters. For now, though, it has just one occupant - a 24-hour telephone operator.

Here is more proof of pathetic liar and illegal president of Pakistan Mr. Pervez Musharraf's regime did everything to 'right' the wrong. The way he tried to camouflage MQM's terrorist past is evident in this article published in daily DAWN Pakistan.

KARACHI: CM okays withdrawal of cases against MQM

By Tahir Siddiqui

KARACHI, Nov 2: The chief minister of Sindh, Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim, has approved the withdrawal of over 1,300 criminal cases against leaders and workers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement.

Well-placed sources told Dawn on Friday that the review board, formed by the Sindh government under the National Reconciliation Ordinance on Oct 9, had recommended the withdrawal of the cases after close scrutiny. These included 1,280 cases in Karachi, 40 from Mirpurkhas and 10 from Hyderabad.

They further explained that the review board, headed by Justice (Retd) Dr Ghaus Mohammed and comprising Sindh Law Secretary Ghulam Nabi and Advocate-General Khwaja Naveed as members, was still in the process of examining another 1,500 cases that might be recommended to the CM for withdrawal.

Reportedly, several of the cases approved for withdrawal involved leaders of the MQM, including its self-exiled chief Altaf Hussain who was declared an absconding accused in the highly-publicised murder case of former KESC chief Shahid Hamid.

Under Sub-section 3 of Section 2 of the National Reconciliation Ordinance, the review board is empowered to review the entire record of the cases pending against any person, including an absconding accused who is found to have been falsely involved for political reasons or through political victimisation.

As envisaged in the NRO, the board may review any case initiated between Jan 1, 1986 and Oct 12, 1999, and furnish recommendations to the government of Sindh regarding their withdrawal from prosecution or otherwise.

This is famous story of Canadian Federal Court's historic decision about deportation of Kashif Omer, a resident of Montreal, on the grounds he is a member of the Mothaidda Quami Movement, or MQM. This again published in 'National Post Canada'.

Judge orders deportation of Pakistani party chief

Stewart Bell, National Post
Published: Wednesday, July 18, 2007


The head of the Quebec branch of a Pakistani political party is facing deportation after the Federal Court of Canada ruled he belonged to an organization that committed terrorism.

The judge upheld the deportation of Mohammed Kashif Omer, a resident of Montreal, on the grounds he is a member of the Mothaidda Quami Movement, or MQM.

It is the second time this year Canadian courts have ruled the MQM party meets the legal definition of a terrorist organization.

Mr. Omer is one of dozens of Pakistanis whom Canadian immigration authorities are trying to deport because of their involvement in the MQM.

Despite being blamed for the kidnapping, torture and murder of its political rivals in Pakistan, the MQM has opened a Canadian branch called MQM-Canada.

Members of the group have worked on Conservative election campaigns, met Prime Minister Stephen Harper and recently hosted a conference in Calgary.

Conservative MP Art Hanger spoke at the June 8-10 MQM Canada convention, which was attended by several Pakistanis who are being deported for their alleged involvement in terrorism. Mr. Hanger said he did not support the group. Conservative MLA Shiraz Shariff also attended. He said yesterday he was unaware Canadian courts had deemed the MQM a terrorist organization. "Why are we as a nation then allowing them to have a congregation here?" he said.

Among the speakers at the convention was Mr. Omer, who presented a report on the "achievements and future strategy" of the Montreal office of MQM, according to the group's Web Site.

Mr. Omer has no immigration status in Canada. A Canada Border Services Agency spokesman, Erik Paradis, said the court ruling means that the deportation order against Mr. Omer is now in effect.

The MQM is a Pakistani political party that is part of President Pervez Musharraf's ruling coalition. The Canadian MQM branch has never been accused of illegal activities but in Pakistan the party has been blamed for widespread violence, most recently in May when gunfights between the MQM and anti-government demonstrators left more than 40 dead.

MQM officials deny any role in attacks and say they are victims of misinformation spread by Pakistani authorities. Canada's Security Intelligence Review Committee has been looking into complaints from MQM members that immigration authorities have unfairly branded them as terrorists.

Mr. Omer came to Canada in 1998 and was granted refugee status but in 2005 immigration officials said he could not remain in Canada "because he knowingly and for a long period of time belonged to an organization that has engaged in terrorism."

In Pakistan, Mr. Omer had been a member of the MQM and its student wing from 1987 to 1998. He denied any involvement with the MQM in Canada but eventually acknowledged he was in charge of the MQM's Quebec office.

The Immigration and Refugee Board said "Mr. Omer's reasons for trying to hide that, in Canada, he is responsible for the Montreal section of the MQM-Canada lead me to believe that he knew that his party was committing many violent acts."

He appealed the decision to the Federal Court, arguing that the MQM is not a terrorist organization and that the violence was committed by rogue elements in the party, but the court was not convinced.

Any doubts still left that MQM is a fascist party?

You are right and I am of the view that many MQMers in this forum inwardly know the truth about their party. But somehow they don't accept it openly because they think that MQM (despite this truth) represents Mohajirs and secures them from the perceived onslaught of other ethnic groups. MQM has so far been successful in building that perception of insecurity by promoting ethnic violence and target killings. This is essence of mafia gang with a vibrant political wing.

Mr. Omer came to Canada in 1998 and was granted refugee status but in 2005 immigration officials said he could not remain in Canada "because he knowingly and for a long period of time belonged to an organization that has engaged in terrorism."

In Pakistan, Mr. Omer had been a member of the MQM and its student wing from 1987 to 1998. He denied any involvement with the MQM in Canada but eventually acknowledged he was in charge of the MQM's Quebec office.

The Immigration and Refugee Board said "Mr. Omer's reasons for trying to hide that, in Canada, he is responsible for the Montreal section of the MQM-Canada lead me to believe that he knew that his party was committing many violent acts."

He appealed the decision to the Federal Court, arguing that the MQM is not a terrorist organization and that the violence was committed by rogue elements in the party, but the court was not convinced.

You are right and I am of the view that many MQMers in this forum inwardly know the truth about their party. But somehow they don't accept it openly because they think that MQM (despite this truth) represents Mohajirs and secures them from the perceived onslaught of other ethnic groups. MQM has so far been successful in building that perception of insecurity by promoting ethnic violence and target killings. This is essence of mafia gang with a vibrant political wing.

yes you are right, it is our responsibilty to save our country mates from this killer GANG.
