Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah on Tuesday criticised Rangers for demolishing MQM offices in Sindh and termed their move a counter-productive act, according to a private channel.
“It is not the mandate of Rangers to demolish or shut down MQM offices. If they [Rangers] do this they will lose respect in the eyes of people,” Sanaullah said and advised them to let the political parties do the work which they were supposed to do.
Talking to reporters outside the Punjab Assembly, the law minister said the process of the political demise of MQM chief Altaf Hussain should be moved forward politically.
He said that demolishing of MQM offices was an act which would be counter-productive. According to him, Rangers’ act generates more sympathies for MQM.
Indirectly blaming Rangers for the arrest of Dr Farooq Sattar, head of MQM-Pakistan for a brief period, and defection of MQM lawmaker Asif Hasnain, Sanaullah said “these acts are not right”.
“Let the political process move forward politically,” the Punjab law minister said. He, however, praised Rangers for fighting against terrorists and enemies of the country.
Sanaullah said that Hussain’s anti-Pakistan slogans were aimed at destabilising the country and his act amounted to treason. -Business Recorder
