The letter further adds that “Altaf Hussain went into a mad rage abusing PTI women activists in gutter language from his home in London,” after the PTI demanded action be taken against the MQM for its involvement in the Baldia factory fire, which led to 258 deaths including of women and children – as stated by a joint investigation team report.

The letter also alleges Altaf Hussain of running an armed mafia wing, which indulges in extortion, blackmail and murder. “The MQM has terrorised the citizens of Karachi for decades as well as indulging in murders of journalists and political rivals….”
