We lost an honest politician: Altaf


Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain has expressed grief and sorrow over the demise of senior leader Jamaat-e-Islami Prof Ghafoor Ahmed. JI’s Naib Amir Prof Ghafoor Ahmed passed away on Wednesday night after a protracted illness. He was 85. Prof Ghafoor was born on June 26, 1927, at Bareli, India. He joined the JI in 1950 and also served as federal minister and senator. He left behind three sons and six daughters. Paying tribute to late Prof Ghafoor, Hussain said he was a great politician who played an important role in the national politics.
No covert deal with
Tahir-ul-Qadri: Member of Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Coordination Committee and Provincial Minister Dr Sagheer Ahmed has said that his party is not involved in any secret deal with Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri. Talking to journalists on Sukkur Airport, Dr Sagheer Ahmed said Muttahida Qaumi Movement had always welcomed those political parties who believe in the democratic process. MQM has the principled stance of staying at peace with everybody, he noted, adding the statement that came from Taliban leaves a question mark. Dr Ahmed said the recent press conference by chief election commissioner had made their suspicions regarding delimitation even clearer and his party still stands by its earlier stance.
