Karachi , July 8 (ANI): The Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), headed by Altaf Hussain, has condemned yesterdays serial blasts in Karachi , saying it had warned about such attacks long ago.
The party said that the spreading Talibanization in Pakistan was a great threat to the country.
Karachi is the center of gravity for the whole region. We have been warning and indicating to people for a long time that they must stay alert to face any possibility. Now we understand Talibanization is a great threat and would be [disastrous] if they are not stopped, the Daily Times quoted MQM MNA (member of national assembly) Haider Abbas Rizvi as saying.
He added that party chief Altaf Hussain had also warned the provincial government and party workers to make people aware of the emergence of Talibanization in the city.
The federation needs to think and work out a strategy to face this menace or it will be too late to tackle if delayed. A heavy budget was being spent on the intelligence agencies and it is their job to get their hands on those responsible behind such cowardly incidents, added Rizvi.
He revealed that Hussain would soon call a meeting of the party over the prevailing situation in Pakistan . (ANI)
