    ISLAMABAD: An official report containing details of the joint interrogation reports of all key government agencies relating to the 26 accused arrested and probed in 2010 in Karachi’s target killing cases, shows the majority belonging to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) while the rest claimed their association with the MQM-Haqqiqi, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Sipah-e-Muhammad, Awami National Party (ANP) and Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan.

    The report is horrific and contains the statements, confessions, revelations and crime history of the arrested alleged target killers, including those having South African connections. The disclosures of these high profile suspects cause a shiver in the spine as each and every page of the voluminous report is full of tales where a large number of people were killed ruthlessly in a callous manner and merely on the whims and wishes of a few.

    The report, nothing less than a bombshell, has been reportedly prepared by the Sindh Home Department and provided to the president, prime minister, Interior Ministry and all concerned at the federal and Sindh government.

    The report did not talk of even a single alleged target killer having any connection or affiliation with the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), whose recently removed Sindh Home Minister Dr Zulfikar Mirza has been the boss of the police and other agencies in the province.

    Mirza has been accusing the MQM, both directly and indirectly, of having been involved in the target killings, whereas Altaf Hussain’s party has always rejected these allegations and instead blamed the people’s peace committees of the PPP and ANP of alleged involvement in target killings and extortion.

    According to an official source, the 26 accused were arrested in target killing cases in a span of a few weeks and after Karachi saw all time high number of such killings last year. The source said that the kind of information revealed by these accused was nothing less than a bombshell and required immediate attention of all concerned to bring peace in Karachi by curbing such criminal groups there.

    When asked as to why not even a single PPP man was reflected in the list of 26, the source said that the reason was that not even a single PPP affiliated man was caught in the target killing case.

    The confessions of most of the accused before the joint interrogation teams show them to be hardened criminals and trained killers. Most of them have criminal histories. They have been jailed in the past but were released and continued with their alleged crimes.

    Though no comment was made in the report about the failure of the police, prosecution and the intelligence agencies, the mere reading of the details of the crimes reflect on serious inefficiency of the law enforcing agencies and the criminal justice system. It shows that not only the hardened criminals were released because of lack of evidence but also let loose without any surveillance of the intelligence agencies and police to continue committing crime without any fear and in a reckless manner.

    The joint interrogation teams, which probed these accused, include the representatives of the ISI, IB, police, Special Branch, CID and Military Intelligence. In the coming few days, The News would run stories on the confessions and disclosures of these accused as reflected in the joint investigation reports. Disclosures by some of the accused contain serious allegations against some of the political entities and such revelations would be shared with the readers.

    The official document reflects on three categories of target killings. The first category includes crimes to have been committed on the alleged order of the high command of a particular party or group. The second category of crime includes such criminals, who for their vested interest and in violation of the party or group’s discipline carry out such killings. The third category includes small group of criminals, belonging to a particular sectarian or ethnic group, who because of their own conviction select their targets and kill them.

    The list of accused arrested in target killings whose joint interrogations had been held in 2010 includes a total of 26 suspects. Fourteen out of these 26 are alleged to be associated with the MQM, three are linked with the MQM-H, five with Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, two with SSP and one each with the ANP and Sipah-e-Muhammad.


    Those allegedly having affiliation with the MQM include Habib-ur-Rehman, s/o Majeed-ur-Rehman, Murad Akhtar Siddiqui, s/o Minhaj-uddin Siddique, Sultan alias Couple, s/o Muhammad Suleman, Jamal Abdul Nasir alias Commando, Tahir Ali alias Topchi, Imran alias Irfan Lamba, s/o S Mehboob Ali, Shariq Nafees, alias Sheri, s/o Muhammad Nafees Sheikh, Atif Rasheed, alias Ghora, s/o Abdul Rasheed, Ikram, alias Akoo, s/o Habibullah, Anus Bin Haroon, s/o Syed Abu Asad, Syed Abu Irfan, alias Urfi, s/o Syed Abu Asad, Muhammad Ishtiaq, alias Suleman, alias Police Wala, Muhammad Yaseen, s/o Abdul Haq, and Rizwan Mehmood, alias Khalid Chamber, s/o Mehmood Khan.

    The five alleged suspects involved in target killing cases belonging to the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi include Waseem Ahmed, alias Barudi, s/o Samiullah, Muhammad Abdullah, alias Taimor, s/o M Riaz Shahid, Hafiz Ikhlaq, s/o Pervaiz Akhtar, Naseem Haider, alias Feron, s/o Ghulam Haider, and Asif Rasheed, alias Dumba, s/o Haroon Rashid.

    The three accused associated with MQM-H are Maqbool Hussain, s/o Ali Hassan, Azhar Ali, alias Uncle, alias Baboo, s/o Abdul Rehman, and Abdul Aziz Ansari, s/o Abdul Naseer Ansari. The accused belonging to the SSP are Nasir Qadri, s/o A Qadeer, and Muhammad Shoaib, s/o Muhammad Ali. The ANP’s accused is Mashwar Nawaz, alias Mashwari, s/o Anwar Khan, whereas Sipah-e-Muhammad’s accused is Syed Ali Mehdi, alias Suleman, s/o Syed Jaffar Ali.

    Except the MQM affiliated Murad Akhtar Siddiqui, s/o Minhaj-uddin Siddiqui, almost all others accused have been graded as “black” for their alleged involvement in heinous crimes like killing, looting, etc. Murad Siddiqui has been graded as “white” as he has never been involved in any crime in the past and was even found innocent in the murder case in which he was apprehended.

    No PPP man named in Joint Team report on Karachi target killings

    South Asian Connection, Can anyone shed light on it? As far as i know, during 1990's operation, many Hardcore Mqm affiliated workers and militants ran to South Africa, and now they are controlling all the target killings in Karachi through South Africa.



    Ok i Found that Report. It's in English as well as in URDU. A very detailed one covering every aspect.

    Karachi’s bloody March: 158 target killings in 22 days

    Tariq Butt
    Monday, April 11, 2011


    ISLAMABAD: Unidentified gunmen shot dead a total of 158 people in target killings in just 22 days of March in Karachi, averaging over seven persons murdered every day, a consolidated figure compiled by an intelligence report reveals.

    The data covers the period between March 4 and April 1, both days included. According to the report, there were no target killings on seven days -- March 5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 16 and 29, it says.

    While in most cases, the statistics distinguish the slain people with their names and affiliations, it is silent on the identity of the killers. For them, it repeatedly used the terms ‘unknown or unidentified’.

    Those killed belong to the police, Mutahidda Qaumi Movement, former MQM workers, MQM-Haqqiqi, Awami National Party, Pakhtoon Action Committee, People’s Students Federation, Baloch, Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan-Noorani Group, Jeay Sindh Mahaz, Lyari gangs, Pakistan People’s Party, Jamaat-e-Islami and sectarian outfits.

    It appears from a reading of the comprehensive data that the intelligence agency collects the statistics about target killings from police stations of Karachi every day and reports it to the federal government and other concerned quarters.

    These specific figures are also available with the Punjab government, which, in the words of an official, is weighing the security situation, especially after the MQM has practically started its activities in the province.

    The statistics did not say how many target killers were arrested or shot dead by the police in encounters, perhaps because the agency is not assigned to compile such kind of data. It also didn’t show anywhere that the police followed the assassins. However, an official said that intelligence agencies not only have perfect data about the target killings and operations of mafias in Karachi, they also have information about the influential people behind these heinous crimes. He said it was for the political government to take a decision to act decisively.


    The data shows that six persons, including a police constable, were shot dead on March 4; on March 6 four lives were claimed including that those of Maulana Ahmed Madani (administrator of Madrissa Mehmoodia), who was a stepbrother of slain Azam Tariq, the chief of the defunct Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan, and his son, and on March 8 six persons lost their lives in target killings.

    Similarly, on March 9, five persons were gunned down; on March 12 eight people; March 13 was one of the bloodiest days as 10 persons were shot dead; on March 15 eight persons; on March 17 nine people; on March 18 three persons; on March 19 six people; March 20 was another bloody day as 12 persons lost their lives in the senseless killings; on March 21 nine people; there was also much bloodshed on March 22 as 10 persons were killed; on March 23 six people; there was also too many killings on March 24 and March 25 as 12 persons each; on March 26 five people; on March 27 6 persons; on March 28 four people; on March 30 eight persons; on March 31 four people; and on April 1 five persons were killed. The data shows that on March 30, one Imran alias Jangi, the private chief security officer of a Sindh minister, was shot and killed by unknown armed motorcyclists.

    ‘Killer’ alleges MQM has militant wing

    Ansar Abbasi
    Tuesday, April 12, 2011


    ISLAMABAD: One of the most dangerous alleged target killers, who confessed to have killed many, including police officers in Karachi, has reportedly claimed his association with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s “militant wing”, and has named Dr Imran Farooq as the contact person for many party militants. He further said that Ajmal Pahari was one of the MQM’s men.

    Arrested and interrogated in 2010 before the murder of Dr Imran Farooq, the accused target killer, Muhammad Ishtiaq, alias Salman, alias Police Wala, confessed before the Joint Interrogation Team comprising representatives of the ISI, IB, Rangers, CID, Sindh Police and Special Branch, as reported in an official document, that Ajmal Pahari (who was arrested recently in Karachi and is alleged to have been involved in the killing of 100 people) also belongs to the MQM.

    But Ishtiaq’s revelation appears contradictory when, on the one hand, he talked of a militant wing of the MQM but, on the other hand, he said that Dr Imran Farooq and Ajmal Pahari had been carrying out killings without any such party policy.

    The report quoted him as saying: “Ishtiaq further revealed that many of the militants were in direct contact with Dr Imran Farooq. For instance, Ajmal Pahari and Saeed Bharam had reportedly been carrying out killings on his orders, separate from the party policy. And often a large number of killings were conducted to advance personal interests and for personal enmities.”

    The Sindh Home Department report says that 26 accused, arrested and interrogated in target killing cases in 2010, belong to the MQM, MQM-H, ANP, SSP, Sipah-e-Muhammad and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. Ishtiaq’s background and his confession, as reflected in the official report, is simply shocking so it is being reproduced in full:

    “AFFILIATION WITH MQM (A) MILITANT WING: He joined MQM (A) as a worker in 1996/97 in Liaquatabad sector. He was arrested in 1997 by Azizabad police after he brandished a weapon in front of the Golden Pan Shop. After receiving permission from Shoaib Bukhari, the SHO registered a case u/s 13-d of the Arms Ordinance against Ishtiaq. During his detention in jail, he met all activists/terrorists of MQM (A) who were arrested during the operation period.

    “After release from Jail, he met with Fahim alias Kankata, who motivated him to join the militant wing of MQM (A) in 1997. As he had been dismissed from service, he travelled to South Africa in October 1997 and stayed there for nine months. After returning in August 1998, he was arrested during the operation that began after the murder of Hakim Said in October 1998. He was arrested by SHO Azizabad, Inspector Ghazanfar Kazmi. He was challanned in five murder cases, one case of 13-D, one case of 13-e, and one case of s.147/148. He was released from jail after two years and reinstated in service in 2003, on the recommendation of Shoaib Bukhari. He remained inactive in the party for the next 4/5 years.

    “Two and a half years ago, Adeel bhai came from London and contacted him. Adeel bhai knew him because he had worked with Adeel in South Africa. Adeel bhai assigned him a new task of selecting militants for establishing a new “set-up” for the party. “Set Up” is the code for establishing a new killing team.

    “In this connection, he met Ubaid K-2, but Ubaid K-2 told him that he was already working with another set-up, i.e. that of Ajmal Pahari, but he recommended Rafay, (Rafay, Ubaid’s friend). Ishtiaq introduced Rafay to Adeel at 5/A2, New Karachi. Adeel gave him permission for making a team and Rafay’s team included Danish, Faisal, Irfan alias Irfi, and Nomi. After 10 days of that meeting, Rafay brought his team to meet Adeel. Then Adeel directed him to manage the team on his behalf, as he did not want direct contact with the team members. One year after this, Adeel also gave him the responsibility for managing two other teams, that of Muhammed bhai alias Hasan in Landhi, and Sultan bhai in Orangi. Jehangir Babu, who runs a team in Korangi, also reports to him from time to time.

    “DISCLOSURE/INFORMATION: He was arrested in 1997, in PS Azizabad Karachi for keeping illicit 30 bore weapon, a case was registered u/s 13-D A.O. and he was jailed for three months.

    “Then he went to South Africa with Asif Dadan and Nasim alias Nasim Behari (Liaquatabad wala) and got asylum in South Africa. He was attached with MQM (A) group in South Africa. Raza bhai of New Karachi Sector was the overall In-charge of South Africa MQM (A) Group, and Qamar Ghalib and Qamar Teddy were also very active in South Africa set-up. Approximately, after 9-10 months, he returned to Pakistan with Asif Bhai. On his return, he once again became active in the Liaquatabad Sector and was arrested after one year in 1999, at PS Azizabad Karachi by SHO Ghazanfar Kazmi. He was challanned in seven cases, including the murder of Haqiqi workers Ismail Burmi, Naseem, and Aslam; the murder of a police head constable; and the brother of Shera bhai, who was a party worker. He was jailed for two years. He was released on bail from the ADJ Central in 2001.

    “Again, he joined the Liaquatabad sector and worked for the party. In 2003, Shoaib Bukhari helped him to get reinstated in police service in Special Branch.

    “ATTACK ON SSP MUHAMMAD ASLAM KHAN (CASE FIR NO. 07/2010 U/S PS GIZRRI, CLIFTON TOWN, KARACHI): Adeel Bhai alias Agha told him that Shakeel Umar, who was at the time commanding all MQM militants in the city, had given the task to the team of Ajmal Pahari for assassination of SSP Muhammad Aslam Khan. This team carried out attack on SSP Muhammad Aslam Khan at the Punjab Chowrangi, PS Gizri, in January 2006 in which two gunmen of the SSP were killed (Shaheed).

    “DSP (retired) RAHEEM BANGASH CASE: (CASE FIR NO. 517/2010 U/S 302/34 PPC PS METHADAR, SADDAR TOWN, KARACHI: Approximately, 18 months earlier, at Sector 5-A 1/2 unit office, he met with Adeel bhai and Rafay. Adeel bhai asked him about DSP Raheem Bangash. He told them that Raheem Bangash was retired and he had nothing to do with operation. He didn’t give them any information. Adeel bhai collected information on his own and after 5 to 7 days, called him again and told him to assist the team, as the order had come from above. Rafay called and told him that he was on the given address, at Uni Plaza on the 7th Floor, (where Raheem Bangash had his chambers). Rafay told him he could not identify Bangash and needed Ishtiaq’s help. Ishtiaq told him he could not come that day but would come the next day. Ubaid K2 also called him and asked him to identify the target. The next working day, he went with the team, which included Rafay, Ubaid K2, who was just assisting the team, and Irfi. He stood outside the Uni Plaza while the team went upstairs, and followed Bangash down. They signalled to him to confirm that they had identified the right person, and he confirmed that it was indeed Raheem Bangash. Next day Adeel bhai asked him if he had identified Bangash, and he replied positively. Two days later, Ubaid alias K-2 called and gave him the code word (FILE HOGAYE/FILE KI PAYMENT HOGAYE). Adeel Bhai called me to this office in evening when I reached there I met Ubaid, Rafay and Iffi. Adeel bhai appreciated their good work.

    “SI SAJID MURDER CASE: Jehangir Babu came to see Adeel and asked him for permission to kill SI Sajid, who lived in Korangi. Adeel informed him that Jehangir had asked for permission due to some personal dispute, as Sajid had never served in the operation against MQM. Then about 15 days after this, SI Sajid was murdered and Jehangir gave a compliance report to Ishtiaq.

    “MURDER OF INSPECTOR NASIR UL HASSAN (S.H.O BRIGADE PS). CASE FIR NO.30/2010 U/S 353/324/302/392/34 PPC PS BRIGADE, JAMSHEED TOWN, KARACHI: Adeel bhai met Rafey and Ishtiaq in Gol Market (Rafay’s house is in Gol Market and Duan was the code name of his home) and planned to kill Inspector Nasir Ul Hassan. Adeel Bhai had asked the team for targets and Rafay proposed killing of Nasirul Hassan, who was at that time posted at Kemari Town. Adeel agreed, as it was well known that Nasirul Hassan had been active in the operation, and had killed Rehan Bandhani, an MQM worker from Liaqatabad. After six months Adeel bhai asked for progress report as Rafay’s team had not succeeded. Ishtiaq asked Rafay 2/3 times about the given task and he assured him that the task would be done. As there was some confusion about Nasirul Hassan’s appearance, Adeel asked someone to get pictures of the man with the wig. (Nasirul Hasan wore a wig). But before the pictures came, the team got the opportunity. At the time, Nomi was not part of the Rafay’s team, but was working with Ubaid alias K-2. At the time of Nasir ul Hassan’s killing, Ubaid called him and informed him that the task had been completed but one of the boys (Nomi) has been injured and he asked Ishtiaq to arrange for a doctor. He phoned Adeel and asked him to bring a doctor to the school in Liaqatabad No.4, which was the team’s meeting place.

    He arranged the doctor namely Israr Raheel (from Zubaida Hospital, Liaquatabad No.3). The doctor checked the injured person and said that this is a bullet injury case and the patient should be moved to hospital. After the doctor left, he brought another doctor, namely Dr. Nadeem Abbas Jafri (working in Memon Hospital, Hussainabad), for treatment of the injured person. The doctor checked the injured person and advised him that the bullet had just grazed Nomi’s neck and was not serious, but he would have to go to hospital. He admitted him in Memon Hospital, Hussainabad, Karachi.

    “MURDER OF DSP NAWAZ RANJHA (CASE FIR NO. 929/2010 U/S 302/324/353/427/34 PPC, 7 ATA PS PARADE, SADDAR TOWN KARACHI: Two years ago, Iffi’s brother was killed in an incident in Jamshed Quarters PS. Iffi suspected that his brother was murdered and the incident had been covered up by the local police, specifically DSP Nawaz Ranjha, who was the SPO at the time. The reason for covering up the incident was that the family of the girl with whom Iffi’s brother was involved had approached Ranjha. When Ishtiaq attended his funeral, he knew that Iffi’s brother had relations with a girl and he used to come to her house. One morning a policeman came to Iffi’s home and told them that police found a dead body in which they found his address, on which the family reached the PS. The police had already lodged a suicide case. Iffi’s family collected information for 2 to 4 days and concluded that he had been killed by the family of the girl, and that Ranjha had covered up the matter.

    “When Iffi sought Adeel bhai’s permission to kill Ranjha on this ground, Adeel bhai asked whether DSP Nawaz Ranjha was the same man who had been SHO in PS Gulbehar? Adeel bhai asked to collect information about DSP Nawaz Ranjha, and said that if he was the same Ranjha who had been posted in Gulbehar, then he was a supporter of the party, because he used to tell the party in advance when the police would surround and besiege the Khajji Ground. But Rafay and Iffi insisted that he was not the same Ranjha, so Adeel gave the go-ahead for killing him. On the night when DSP Nawaz Ranjha was murdered, half an hour later Rafay called me and asked me if I was watching TV, because there was a very good match on TV. (He was speaking the code about the breaking news of Ranjha’s murder). Ishtiaq said yes, and what had happened was good. Then he hung up the phone. Next day, Adeel bhai called me and asked me in code words: who had done this job? (Yeh Garhi Kisne Khareedi?) Ishtiaq told him he would give him the details in the office. Then I met Rafay in Gol Market FC Area, and enquired about the incident. Rafay boasted about the murder and told him that he, Iffi, Faisal, Nomi and Kashif are involved. He further told him that he had already informed Adeel bhai.

    “After a few days, Adeel Bhai called me at Nazimabad marriage hall lane and told me that he will take care of this mistake. Siddique bhai was also there and he scolded Adeel Bhai and threatened him that he would be sent back to London if he could not manage his teams. Adeel bhai told Siddique bhai that he had told Rafay only to do the job after verifying the facts about Ranjha and only after checking with Salman bhai (Ishtiaq’s party name) first. I denied that Rafay had ever asked my permission.

    “When Iffi was arrested and disclosed my name, I asked Adeel Bhai to take me to his house because my name was announced on television. But he didn’t shelter me and I went underground. Then they contacted my friend Muhammad Sultan and ordered him not to receive my call or contact me. When I contacted Adeel bhai on Eid, he told me about the good news of reinstatement of our followers, Jahangir babu, Shehzad, Asad, Ansari bhai and Moon.

    “TARGET KILLING SPREE ONE AND A HALF MONTHS BEFORE THE MURDER OF RAZA HYDER, MPA: He disclosed that one and a half months before the murder of MQM MPA Raza Hyder, Adeel bhai told him to give instructions to all this teams to target office bearers of ANP. Adeel bhai said that these orders had come from above. Ishtiaq asked his teams accordingly, but in that period, they were unable to hit any ANP target. However, dozens of ordinary Pathans were killed, and in fact, Sultan asked him why he had restricted their targets to ANP office bearers when everyone else was targeting whomever he wished. Sultan said that had he been allowed to do the same, he would have gotten dozens of targets. Later, Adeel Bhai told him that his people had been responsible for at least 21-22 murders.

    Ishtiaq further disclosed that his teams had not taken part in any of the target killings that had occurred after the murder of MPA Raza Hyder, and that those killings had been conducted by the unit and sector level vigilance committees.

    STRUCTURE OF MQM KILLING TEAMS: Ishtiaq disclosed that there were several “Set Ups” working in Karachi, carrying out target killings. Initially, all killing teams in Karachi were centralised under Shakeel Omar. Later, when Shakeel Omar got heavily involved in land grabbing and corruption activities in Surjani Town, he was set aside and Ajmal Pahari (Party name Adnan) and Saeed Bharam (Party name Ahmed) were given the responsibility. But they too got involved in corruption activities and so vigilance committees were created at the unit and sector level, which would serve as armed wings. But they too grew out of control.

    Therefore, finally this new set-up under Adeel bhai and Siddique bhai was formed. These were mostly militants who were being run by South Africa unit. Currently, Qamar Teddy and Raza Bhai of New Karachi are in-charge in South Africa, and Adeel bhai and Siddique bhai were in touch with these individuals, but were also in touch with London, where Anis Qaimkhani was in-charge of the killing teams.

    Ishtiaq further revealed that many of the militants were in direct contact with Dr. Imran Farooq. For instance, Ajmal Pahari and Saeed Bharam had reportedly been carrying out killings on his orders, separate from the party policy. And often a large number of killings were conducted to advance personal interests and enmities.

    OTHER KILLINGS: On 01-04-1997, accused Ishtiaq along with his accomplices, targeted/killed Muhamamd Ismail in the area of PS North Nazimabd. In this regard, case FIR No. 162/97 u/s 302 PPC was registered at PS North Nazimabad.

    On 15-06-1998, accused Ishtiaq, along with his accomplices, targeted/killed Sharif Khan in the area of PS North Nazimabad and FIR No. 247/98 u/s 302 PPC was registered at PS North Nazimabad.

    On 24-06-1998, accused Ishtiaq along with his accomplices, targeted/killed ASI Maqsood, who was posted in East Zone, Karachi, in the area of PS North Nazimabad. FIR No. 162/97 u/s 302 PPC was registered at PS North Nazimabad.

    On 03-07-1997, accused Ishtiaq, along with his accomplices, targeted/killed Naseem Akhter, s/o Muhammad Ali, in the area of PS Sharifabad. FIR No. 272/97 u/s 302 PPC was registered at PS Sharifabad Karachi.

    On 23-06-1995, accused Ishtiaq, along with his accomplices, targeted/killed Sher Muhammad in the area of PS Sharifabad. FIR No. 166/95 u/s 302/324/34 PPC was registered at PS Sharifabad Karachi.

    On 24-06-1998, accused Ishtiaq along with his accomplices, targeted/killed Jahangir Mirza in the area of PS North Nazimabad. FIR No. 141/98 u/s 302 PPC was registered at PS Sharifabad Karachi.

    INFORMATION: Adeel alias Agha is in-charge of several target-killing teams of MQM (A) group. Under his supervision, he (Ishtiaq Police Wala) alias Salman operate the following teams:

    1. Rafay of Liaquatabad sector team.

    2. Muhammad of Landhi sector team.

    3. Sultan of Orangi sector team.

    4. Occasionally, Jehangir Babu of Korangi.

    All targets were given to the teams by Ishtiaq Police Wala, who also received compliance reports from the teams and passed on the information to Adeel alias Aga Murtaza.

    Presently, the MQM high command from London has reportedly ordered all militants to target ANP office bearers and MQM (H) and PPI activists/workers in Karachi.

    Ishtiaq Police Wala further disclosed that every sector of MQM (A) has its own vigilance team for all terrorist activities in their respective areas.

    MQM denies any militant wing

    Editor Investigations

    ISLAMABAD: Senior MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari has categorically stated that the Muttahida does not have any militant wing and made it clear on Monday that his party would not offer any kind of support to any criminal, including the target killers, even if such a person had blood relations with any leader of the party.

    “We have nothing to do with violence. Politics and violence can’t go together,” he said, adding that the suspect target killers, who are shown to have been associated with the MQM, should be tried and punished as per the law of the land.

    “We believe in accountability and would not offer political support to anyone, even amongst our party men, who is accused to having been involved in any criminal activity,” Sabzwari said.

    When approached for his party’s version on the Sindh Home Department’s “Joint Interrogation Reports of Accused Arrested in Target Killing 2010”, he said that he did go through the list of the accused target killers along with the brief about the crime they allegedly committed. The young Muttahida leader said, “We are very much clear that they (amongst the accused target killers) might be or have been associated with the party but the MQM has nothing to do with any such person.”

    When asked about the confession of different accused persons, including Muhammad Ishtiaq alias Salman alias Police Wala, in which they blamed the MQM of having been involved in the target killings in Karachi, he said that confessions and disclosures do not mean anything unless such serious allegations are proved in the court of law.


    He said that in the past too, the MQM was blamed for running a militant wing but it had never been the policy of the party. “You can’t do two things (politics and violence) side by side,” he said, terming such reports as baseless and without any substance. He also rejected the alleged involvement of Dr Imran Farooq, who was murdered last year, in any illegal and criminal act and portrayed him as one of the best leaders the MQM had produced.

    “He was a soft-spoken person, having close association with Altaf Bhai but was inflexible rather than stern on organisational matters of the party. He would never allow anyone to be above the rules of the party,” Sabzwari said, ruling out the late leader’s involvement in any criminal activity.

    Regarding the disclosures and confessions in the Joint Interrogation Reports and that 14 out of the 26 accused arrested in target killing cases belonged to the MQM, he said, first it was for the court to prove these allegations.

    Secondly, he said that only a recent report of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan proves that 75% of those killed by the target killers belonged to the MQM. Sabzawari hinted that the MQM was being negatively portrayed after it took a principled decision on the issue of NRO, which also resulted in the reopening of all criminal cases against the MQM leaders and activists too.

    He said that the kind of violence the MQM leaders and their workers had faced in the past was unprecedented but proved the point that violence was no solution and through violence you cannot suppress others.

    He said Karachi has seen killings and clashes on both ethnic and political basis but none is commendable. He recalled that the leaders of the MQM lost their near and dear ones in past violence. “Altaf Bhai lost his real brother and a nephew. I lost my real uncle, who was brutally tortured and savagely murdered not for any of his crimes but because of his views.”

    Reiterating his party’s resolve to leave it to the courts to decide the fate of target killers irrespective of their party affiliation or personal connections, he reminded that in the past, concocted confessions were extracted and poor charges were framed, which could not stand a fair trial.

    He did not rule out the presence of possible anti-social or criminal elements in the MQM but said that the party had no place for such elements, which were expelled or suspended as soon as their tendencies were uncovered.

    “We have suspended or expelled almost 6,000 workers during the last seven to eight years because of similar reasons,” he said, adding that the MQM, being the masses’ party, can’t afford to pursue violence.

    Oh every murderer says he is not killer.. and who has forgotten the past few years in which people saw containners blocking roads and whole city converted into a dungeon. It was MQM's era.. i wonder if people can still be made fools by such baseless claims that MQM doesn't have a terrorist wing.

    ISLAMABAD: The alleged target killers arrested by police have revealed before the Joint Interrogation Team (JIT) horrific stories of murder, rape and looting common citizens on the basis of affiliation, revenge and profiling based on the colour of their skin.

    The arrested accused have told the investigators whom they killed on the orders of the high-ups. They have also explained as to who provided them the weapons and how they used to return the arms after the commission of the offence. The killers have also disclosed that girls were being used to identify targets and how mother of a person was raped as revenge because that person had developed illicit relations with mother of the rapist, when he was in jail.
