KARACHI : Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan convener Farooq Sattar on Saturday rubbished allegations of being in contact with the London-based founder of the MQM and Mustafa Kamal, the head of the Pak Sarzameen Party.
“These are baseless and false allegations,” Sattar told Geo News, adding that there were “some restless souls spreading false rumours”.
Sattar’s statement came in response to serious accusations by his former colleague, Salman Mujahid Baloch, who has recently been expelled by the party.

MQM-Pakistan claims complete dissociation from the MQM founder or any policies or decisions by the London-based faction of the party.
“Salman said all of this when he was expelled from the party. He basically wants to distract people so that no one questions why he was expelled,” reasoned Sattar while speaking to Geo News today.
Over the allegations of divisions in the party, he claimed that “there is no such case nor there ever will be.”
He also claimed that such allegations seek to waste the time of the nation. “The issue will subside in a few days. We should move ahead and focus on better things.”
Responding to speaking to MQM founder, he said that it is unimaginable he will be in contact with anyone like the founder.
“Some people will continue politics of allegations and keep on claiming that we are in contact with London. But, there is no such thing.”
On his meeting with Kamal, he shared: “I have not met Mustafa Kamal at Seher Commercial or anywhere.”
He also shared that it is “an absolute lie” and that Salman was expelled over the issue surrounding Irum Azeem Farooque.
