    In a court case in March 2014 in Pennsylvania it become known that a member of MQM was found to be inadmissable on the grounds that MQM was classed as "Tier 3 terrorist organization".

    Lets define what is a tier 3 terrorist Organization?

    Usually tier 3 terrorist organizations are not named in any list by the USA unlike Tier 1 outfits.

    However this classification came to light in the following court case brought by an MQM member

    IN VERY CLEAR TERMS IT STATES THAT MQM WAS CLASSED AS A TIER 3 TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

    canadian immigration and regugee board detailed analysis of the events of 1992 operation and comments on pak army, pak rangers and sindh police

    Canada: Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada

    he MQM alleged that it was being specifically targeted by the army operation (Asian Survey Feb. 1993, 131; AI Feb. 1996, 4; The Far East and Australasia 1996 1996, 858). Several sources indicate that the army and intelligence agencies had become increasingly alarmed at the MQM's growing strength in urban Sindh, where it had become a "virtual parallel government" and was "sounding an increasingly aggressive note" toward the government in Islamabad (UNRISD June 1993, 32; Asian Survey Nov. 1995, 1000; The Economist 1-7 July 1995, 30). On 19 June 1992, combined police and army forces raided MQM offices in Karachi with the assistance of the dissident MQM Haqiqi group (MQM(H) or "real" MQM), which was then installed and sanctioned as the only faction acceptable to the government (Asian SurveyNov. 1995, 998, 1000; UNRISD June 1993, 32; AI Feb. 1996, 4; ibid. Dec. 1993, 38). Several sources indicate that support for the MQM(H) was part of an army strategy to weaken, if not crush, the main MQM(A) faction under Altaf Hussain (The Herald May 1994a, 32; ibid. Aug. 1995a, 26; Asian Survey Nov. 1995, 1000-01; AI Feb. 1996, 4). Efforts to discredit the Altaf faction as a "criminal organization" were aided by the army's allegations of having uncovered 23 MQM torture cells where "hundreds" of political opponents and party dissidents had been tortured and killed (AI Dec. 1993, 38-40; ibid. Feb. 1996, 4; Asian Survey Nov. 1995, 1001; The Far East and Australasia 1996 1996, 858).

    Over the following months hundreds of MQM(A) activists in Karachi and Hyderabad were arrested and the party leadership driven underground (AI Dec. 1993, 38;
    Asian Survey Nov. 1995, 1001; UNRISD June 1993, 32). Most of the party's elected representatives to the provincial and national assemblies resigned their seats, and criminal charges were brought against many of them (AI Dec. 1993, 38; ibid. Feb. 1996, 4; UNRISD June 1993, 32). While Altaf Hussain and the top MQM leadership went into self-imposed exile in London (Asian Survey Nov. 1995, 1001; The Herald May 1994b, 42b), many who remained were reportedly pressured to join the Haqiqi faction (UNRISD June 1993, 32; The Herald Aug. 1995a, 26). As the police and army carried out raids, mass round-ups and siege-and-search operations in pursuit of MQM(A) leaders and militants over the next 30 months, thousands of ordinary MQM supporters and mohajirs were subjected to arbitrary arrest and detention, extrajudicial execution, beatings, torture, extortion and other ill-treatment (The Herald Nov. 1994b, 63-64; AI Dec. 1993; ibid. 5 Apr. 1994; ibid. 13 Dec. 1994; ibid. Jan. 1995; UNRISD June 1993, 32).

    in a later report The Herald noted that the new operation was "lopsided and uneven," with security forces "not targetting all criminals, but a particular group of political activists" (ibid. Aug. 1995a, 25). Despite General Babar's claim that security forces had adopted a new strategy of "target arrests" (IPS 18 Aug 1995; The Herald Aug. 1995a, 27), mass round-ups and military-style siege-and-search operations were still commonly used (see subsection 4.1) (AFP 20 Aug 1995; The Herald Aug. 1995b, 28-30; AI 17 Aug. 1995; Country Reports 1995 1996, 1338). There was growing evidence that the Rangers and police were involved in human rights abuses, including beatings, extortion, disappearances, torture and extrajudicial executions of suspected militants in faked encounter killings (see subsections 4.2 to 4.4) (IPS 18 Aug. 1995; AFP 29 Aug. 1995; AI 17 Aug. 1995; ibid. Feb 1996, 17-18; The Herald Aug. 1995b, 28-30; ibid. Nov. 1995a, 46-47; ibid. Nov. 1995c, 56-58).

    According to one source, the abuses committed during cordon-and-search operations are worse in low-income areas such as Orangi, Baldia and Korangi; while the procedures of arrest and extortion are the same,

    During Operation Clean-up the army's Field Investigation Team (FIT) reportedly operated several interrogation cells in Karachi in which detainees were "subjected to severe torture" (The Herald Nov. 1994b, 64; ibid. Jan. 1995b, 50), and extortion

    And none of that has anything to do with the designation (yours is a cosmetic answer).

    You're trying to appeal to people's emotions, instead of addressing the current topic.

    Try harder. You have, for years, tried to prove that MQM is not a terrorist organization, but have continued to fail at it. There is sufficient evidence that MQM is a terrorist organization. It's not just Canadian courts that makes this claim now, it's US courts as well.

    about haqiqi
    [1]
    “The Haqiqi, or ‘real’ MQM, split off from the main group in 1991 in opposition to
    the leadership of Altaf Hussain. According to Jane's Intelligence Review, the
    MQM-Haqiqi were originally covertly backed by the military in an attempt to
    undermine the MQM (ibid.). Thus the MQM (A) still frequently refers to the MQM- Haqiqi group as ‘state-sponsored terrorists’


    [2]

    The dissidents attached Haqiqi
    meaning real or authentic in Urdu as a suffix to the MQM acronym as an
    assertion of the outfit's legitimacy. Many former MQM members who were
    expelled from the Altaf faction due to alleged criminal links joined the Haqiqi

    [3]

    “In 1992, a breakway MQM faction, led by Afaq Ahmed and Aamir Khan,
    launched the MQM Haqiqi (MQM-H), literally the ‘real’ MQM. Many Pakistani
    observers alleged that the MQM-H was supported by the government of Pakistan
    to weaken the main MQM led by Altaf Hussein
    , which became known as the
    MQM-A (Jane's 14 Feb 2003).

    in conclusion: all the expelled criminals from MQM were taken by the military and recruited for MQM haqiqi faction to counter MQM

    Refworld | Pakistan: Information required on the MQM - Haqiqi Party, particularly in Karachi. Information on its activities, objectives, policies, leadership, membership, history and current situation in Pakistan

    Again, misleading. This is the UK, not the US. The UK is hosting Altaf Hussain, and while Scotland Yards is still investigating MQM for criminal activity, they have yet to declare the MQM as a terrorist organization.

    It's sad how you're trying so hard to defend this organization. I'd say you were being deceived by them, but I know better.
