The founder and leader of MQM Mr. Altaf Hussain has strongly condemned the brutal murder of Maulana Masood Baig, a lecture of Jamia Binoria. The martyred Maulana Masood Baig was the son-in-law of head of Jamia Binoria Mufti Naeem. He termed the murder a part of the conspiracy to instigate a sectarian riot in Karachi.
In a statement issued from London Mr. Hussain said,” the brutal murder of Maulana Masood raises the question on the performance of police, rangers and security forces present in the city. Targeting killings is going on despite the heavy presence of police, rangers, security forces and other agencies in the city. This is happening when a targeted operation is going on against criminals and terrorists. Why are these killings going on?.”
He deplored that terrorists belonging to banned outfits had established their safe havens in the city and killing scholars, doctors, engineers, professors and other eminent personalities. He added that people had been left at the mercy of these terrorists.
“Recently, they killed the son of an eminent scholar Allama Abbas Kumaili. Ali Akbar Kumaily was the son-in-law of Talib Jauhri. Now they have killed the son-in-law of Mufti Naeem, who is the head of Jamia Binoria, “ Mr. Hussain said.
Mr. Hussain has condemned the brutal murder in the strongest possible terms and demanded an investigation into the murder and arrest of the killers.
He expressed his heartfelt condolences with the bereaved family of Maulana Masood and Mufti Naeem. He said that MQM shared their grief.
He prayed to Allah to grant him a place near Him and give strength to the bereaved family to bear the loss.
