Pakistan: MQM-P decries Tando Allahyar killing

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 24 Jan 2022, 07:16 pm

Sukkur, Pakistan: Leaders of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) have condemned the killing of party's senior party leader Khalilur Rehman Khanzada outside a Pakistani court premise in Tando Allahyar city.

They also protested against police’s baton charge on women demonstrators who agitated against the arrest of their family members in the district.

Addressing a workers gathering at the park adjacent to the party’s headquarters, MQM-P Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui was quoted as saying by The News International the police and provincial administration had been trying to give the Tando Allayar tragedy an ‘ethnic colour’ by using force against the Muhajir protesting women and cracking down on Muhajir political activists.

“The MQM-P does not want to give the incident an ethnic colour. It was an act of terrorism and we demand that the government and law enforcement agencies arrest Khanzada’s killers,” he said.

He alleged that the police had set an example of fascism by forcefully crushing the peaceful protest held by women and violating their sanctity.

“Police personnel should be ashamed of beating women with sticks,” Siddiqui said.
