Senior leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Dr Farooq Sattar has declared the Protection of Pakistan Ordinance (PPO) as a ‘dictatorial law’.

Talking to journalists on Sunday, Farooq Sattar alleged that the PPO was a ‘Black Law’ and his party will resist by moving the court if the ordinance was forcefully approved.

He said that the MQM will oppose the law which was against the interests of country and masses at all forums.

The MQM leader favoured continuation of peace talks’ process with the Taliban but stressed that dialogues should not be one way and both sides must be active.
