Sindh Info Minister asks MQM to withdraw its call for mourning on Monday

KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Information and Local Bodies, Sharjeel Inam Memon has urged Muttahida Qaumi Movement to withdraw its call for mourning on Monday in the larger interest of citizens in general and students in particular.

Talking to media on Sunday, he said interests of masses must be accorded top priority by all political parties and groups and further said that opening of schools and other educational institutions from Monday, after an already extended vacation, should not be delayed any more.

“Since Sindh government has already accepted demands of the MQM including constitution of a judicial commission to ascertain cause of the alleged killing of the party worker Faraz Alam in police custody besides suspension of the concerned SHO, there should not be any more use of pressure tactic,” said the Minister, Sharjeel Memon.

He said the provincial government has also extended its sympathies to the party as well as with the bereaved families of Dr. Ali Akber and other victims of target killings.

The Minister said that it was high time that all stake holders realise the intensity of the situation and help the masses continue with their normal routines.

He said Sindh Rangers and Police are also extensively involved in controlling incidents of target killings as well as that of the issue of retrieval of bodies subjected to alleged torture and criminal assault by unidentified killers.
