Will stay with MQM-P despite differences: Farooq Sattar


KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar on Tuesday stated that despite his differences with the party he does not plan on parting ways with MQM-P.

“I am devoted to the kite [MQM-P], and will live and die with this party. I cannot even think about leaving and joining another group,” Farooq Sattar said in an informal chat with reporters.

Sattar also informed that he had spent 35 years with MQM and that he had been offered lucrative posts by numerous political parties after the rifts in the party, but he had rejected their offers.

Earlier, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had suspended the Election Commission of Pakistan’s decision of removing Farooq Sattar as convener of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan.

Babar Sattar, counsel for Sattar, argued that according to law, the ECP has no jurisdiction over internal party matters.
