{November 22, 2011}   Mutehedda Qaumi Movement In Lahore

Student’s Hard Questions to Mustafa Kamal in Front Line 15 Nov 2011.

Lahore, the heart of Punjab and cultural capital of Pakistan has the tradition of creating histories, be it Pakistan Movement, The migration of Muslims from India, or be it Zulfiquar Ali Bhutto ‘s arrival, Lahore always played a vital in Pakistan’s politics.

Since last many decades, Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz Group) bowing down all their rivals and Lahore proved to be the strong hold of PML (N). Undoubtedly, Lahore progressed immensely in last 15 years or so. The parks, roads, road-side parks, canals, picnic points and last but not the least Motorway.

Due to the importance of Lahore politically, politicians always try to get their foots in Lahore, Lahoris always welcome them open-heatedly and listened to what they have to say. but at the same time, it’s been a tradition of Lahore people that whenever someone tries to make his place in Lahore, they welcome him with iron-hand, they ask questions, they prob for their past and their future plans. This shows that that, like any modern metropolitan city, people of Lahore are literate and they know what is good for them.

Recently, Imran Khan was here for a Jalsa at Minar-e-Pakistan, and people of Lahore, specially, the youth welcome him and treated him like a National Hero. Now that respect and enthusiasm was for a cricketing legend or a Politician, that is debatable.

MQM, the 3rd largest Party of Pakistan, major share of urban Sindh, has started his campaign back in early 90s. They held a huge Pubic meeting (Jalsa) at Minar-e-Pakistan, Quaid-e-Tehreek Mr. Altaf Hussain & PML (N) ‘s leader Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif delivered speeches. The response was huge, people of Lahore turned in millions that time and Lahoris proved their hospitality. Later, the state operation was launched against MQM, and most of the MQM leaders went under-ground, jailed or killed, therefore MQM was forced to restrict in Urban SIndh only.

In last few years or so, lots of MQM leaders visited Lahore, and presented themselves to answer the rumors and doubts in minds of Lahoris. MQM believes in compete accountability and understand the fact that the voter has all the right to questioned the leader who is asking votes fro them. In this regard, lot’s of MQM leaders attended talk shows on media where common people of Lahore were there to question, specially i would like to mention the students, this new generation won’t allow anyone to be on top position without being accountable to citizens of Pakistan. Mr. Haider Abbas Rizvi, Madam Khushbakht Shujat, Faisal Sabzwari, Wasim Akhtar & many other representatives of MQM appeared in front of Lahore public lately, and answers all the questions.

Recently, Ex-Mayor of Karachi and member of MQM Rabta Committee was invited by one of the TV channel to visit  Lahore for a public meeting cum Talk show where people from all mediums of life, living in Lahore were there to prob Mr. Syed Mustafa Kamal. Here’s the recording of that program, hope you like it.

 



{January 23, 2011}   MQM and Hakim Saeed Murder

0:14

Lucman:

today we will unveil many secrets

Those declared culprits in the Hakeem Saeed murder, were they really responsible?

I have with me very senior person, who was the head of IB, the director general of Intelligence Bureau, has been placed in positions such as Personal Staff Office to the Prime Minister, Colonel Iqbal Khan Niazi and has experienced a lot and was replaced on the 12th October when Musharraf did a blood less coup.

Lucman: Color Sahab, welcome to point blank with lucman

Niazi: thank you

Lucman: I would like to thank you for a reason which I would like to tell my viewers as well that for the last 3 months I was after him to come in front of media and reveal the facts , tell us what are the real history and its right of the public as well.

Lucman: Hakeem Said, a legendary name of Pakistan, ex governor of Sindh, he was mysteriously assassinated in your tenure, then the murderers were arrested and were called that they are the real murderers. What was it?

Niazi: This is a dark incident from our history in which a charming and extremely respectable personality who was also governor of Sindh was murdered and the assassination was blamed on Muttahida Quami Movement. On this issue a JIT was constituted.

2:11

Lucman: JIT?

Niazi: Yes Joint Interrogation Team

Lucman: Joint Interrogation Team

Niazi: JIT, in which members of different agencies interrogate any indicted or accused arrested.

So the accused in this case was named Tipu.

Lucman: The person nominated/accused?

Niazi: Yes, accused with others as well. But according to Intelligence Bureau (IB) findings, Tipu was not involved in this murder. And the report of this joint interrogation team was a divided report. And the video of this JIT was being recorded. My joint-director Sindh took me in another room where I met another person named who belonged to Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz, and is now deceased, and he said that the accused Tipu is wrongly accused but since the Rana Maqbool have declared in media that he is the accused, Rana does not wish to give a corrigendum in the media because of political reasons.

I took that video and went to Saif Ur Rehman, who was then at Governor House Sindh along with Prime Minister of Pakistan, and shown then the video of investigation, and shown the body language of the accused and interrogators

Lucman: So there was enough torture?

Niazi: Yes there was so that the accused was confessing to just anything the interrogator was blaming. Then I told them to watch the video yourself. Then they watched the video themselves and told me to go along with my Join Director to go to Rana Maqbool’s office tomorrow morning.

Niazi: When we went to Rana Maqbool’s office, we told them that Intelligence Bureau has a different assessment and the accused Tipu is innocent. He should not be used in order to get promotions or claim prize money and even then if you wish to accuse him, do not put a murder accusation on him, reinvestigate and further check it.

Niazi: Then Rana Maqbool flared up and started misbehaving with my joint director and told him that what mockery you are trying to do with me, we have declared him an accused, nominated him in murder and about to create a charge sheet and now you are telling us he is an innocent?

Niazi: The assessment of IB was that Tipu is not a criminal and is innocent.

5:17

Lucman: But on the basis of this Rana Maqbool was promoted to Inspector General of Police Sindh and he started a grand operation against MQM, in which many of its political activists were killed. So do you think those killed were innocent or guilty?

Niazi: Only Rana Maqbool can tell this!

Lucman: You also have to die one day?

Niazi: When this operation began, I was not part of it, nor was I in favor of starting this operation. Then they also established military courts so that the cases can be speedily disposed off and the accused we’ve arrested is quickly sentenced, and the disposal done in way that military courts gave them death sentence. Which were then set void and accused were set free when the civilian courts were restored, then was appealed in high court of Sindh.

Niazi: According to IB’s finding, the accused was an innocent.

Lucman: So I feel that all of us who were accusing one political party till to date – were wrong as per what you are saying now?

Niazi: Yes they were wrong accusations

Lucman: MQM is not responsible?

Niazi: I don’t know about the other acts of MQM, but in this case, according my surveillance and of my staff and according to the reports and statements of Intelligence Bureau, I feel safe in saying that the accused was innocent one hundred and one percent.

6:55

Niazi: A short example of this would be that the accused was made to record a statement that he, along with 9 accused was on the roof of a building. When our interrogation team went there, we could not find a single bud of cigarette, we could not find a single foot print, on a roof where the accused spent a whole night? We could not even find the presence of a bird there! So what kind of evidence was that which could not be confirmed?

Lucman: So the report of the joint interrogation committee was ever made public in which there was a conflict that the accused are innocent in this case.

Niazi: No it cannot come because only the concerned authorities are told about the view point of IB but they let go police and do it.
