Altaf demands ‘public referendum’ on Rangers operation

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Wednesday demanded that a ‘public referendum’ be held on the ongoing Rangers operation in Karachi, Express News reported.

Speaking to the media over the phone from his residence in London, Altaf said that it is crucial that a referendum be held to take public sentiments into account.

The MQM chief advised that a five-member committee be constituted, comprising Supreme Court and High Court judges, to organise the referendum.

Altaf’s statements come after the recent debacle the federal and Sindh governments seem to be involved in after the provincial chief executive hinted at withdrawing policing powers from the paramilitary Rangers force, which has been deployed in Karachi since the 90s.

On Tuesday, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah claimed that under the 18th constitutional amendment, the provincial government was bound to seek the legislative assembly’s approval before allowing Rangers to continue working under extended powers.

The statement comes in the wake of recent raids by Rangers at offices of different provincial government departments that have upset the political stakeholders. Four months ago, the paramilitary force was given special powers to detain suspects for 90 days. The permission expires today (Wednesday).

“There is a bottleneck in giving them extension in special powers to deal with terrorism,” he told reporters.

Following this, the MQM announced staging sit-ins outside the CM House against the ‘atrocities’ of Rangers.

In his address to party office-bearers on Tuesday, the MQM leader called upon the chief minister and the parliamentarians to table a bill in the Sindh Assembly for sending Rangers back to the borders.

He lamented that neither the chief minister nor the judiciary had taken notice of the Rangers’ allegations. “If the courts were independent, then action against Rangers for arresting men illegally would have been taken,” he said.

Just when I thought Altaf could sink no lower, I get this. He never demanded any referendum when MQM invited known criminals to join its ranks. Now when PakArmy's rangers are going against these criminal elements, he wants a referendum. :sarcastic:

fork this fatso.

He wants Karachi to have 100 dead bodies every day 365 days a year.

If CM doesn't extend the role of rangers,

Use 245 for Karachi please.

We do not want our brothers and fathers to be killed by the ruthless mafioso dons like Tafu.

ALLEGED Criminals because they are Innocent until proven Guilty. That is how Justice system works. He did Organize referendum last year to decide whether MQM join PPP led Sindh Gov. or not and it was overwhelming NO so they havent join to this point.

Who is altaf to ask for a referendum, this dumdum sits in London acting like don carleone... Not anymore.

The fact the PPP refused to answer his calls last week tells you what you need to kno about the power struggle in Karacui right now.

Dont follow these Twitter Trends because this one would definitely be started by PTI Social Media Stooge and most of the people trending this would be Non Karachiite.

Banda paghal ho gaya hai!

Today Kashif Abbasi showed Maula baksh Chandio saying to MQM sometime back, abhi operation ki himayat aap kar rahay hain baad main aap hi roen gay sab sya zyada!

And how right he was.

Did somebody hear this toads statement a week or so back, in which he said to the workers to write to every major organization that how Pathans, Sindhis and Balochis were being oppressed and take up this occupation of SIndh.

This is no different to what the BLA and BRA say, this man needs to be tried in court now for this statement.
