A writ petition filed in the Lahore High Court requests that names of three Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) laders Dr Farooq Sattar, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Khwaja Izharul must be included on Exit Control List (ECL).

Barrister Ali Gillani alleged in his petition that Dr Farooq Sattar, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Khwaja Izharul Hassan endorsed anti-Pakistan statements of their party’s chief Altaf Hussain.

The lawyer said that the respondents are guilty of sedition by not openly disapproving the anti-state sentiments of their London based leader.

He expressed apprehensions that the respondents may flee the country in wake of government’s action against MQM.
