Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain apologized on Tuesday for his remarks against law enforcing agencies.
Altaf Hussain had criticised the security agencies over a report by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) which declared that MQM was behind the 2012 factory incident, killing nearly 260 people.
“I had no intension to hurt anybody’s feelings, but despite that, if my words have offended any person of any institution, I apologise for it. I hold nation institutions in high esteem,” said the MQM chief in a statement from London.
MQM has been criticizing security forces since the start of the security operations which began in 2013 in Karachi. They have further rejected the report that has been submitted by Rangers in the Sindh High Court, and demands a death sentence for the culprit involved in the incident.
The MQM chief later added that he has always respected the law enforcing agencies, and would continue to do so.
