JI condemns FO statement on London raid

Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan has condemned the Foreign Office statement regarding the London Police raid on what he claimed to be the business address of the MQM leader Altaf Husain, terming it most shameful.

In a press statement here on Sunday, he said that the London police raid in connection with Dr Imran Farooq’s murder was purely professional and non political, and the Foreign Office was not required to issue any explanation in this regard.

He said the FO statement clearly showed that the government was a hostage in the hands of the MQM and was making every effort to please, even flatter it. That was why the MQM had been blackmailing the government for the acceptance of its unlawful demands. The rulers were being blackmailed and the Federal Interior Minister had been time and again meeting Altaf Husain in London and tendering apology to him, he charged.

Hasan, however, said that the blood of innocent people would speak sooner or later and the killers would ultimately have to face the law.
